This should be a good one, folks. A couple of great offenses led by great QB's.

This is the one that the Saints fans have been waiting for for decades and this is one that could further legitimize Peyton Manning as one of the best players ever to suit up.

Bring it on. This should be fun!

I thought it was a pretty crappy game (I was going for the vikes), but it was so damn sloppy, all the turn-overs, slow booth reviews, lots of flags in general. It had its moments, but that game shouldn't be too hard to top imo.

There is a distinctive Louisiana feel to this thing. You have the Great son of Archie, LSU Alumni Joseph Addai, and I believe Matt Stover went to La. Tech on the Colts.

I'd prefer to see the Saints win, but I think the Colts are just a little better than them.

I am going for the AFC, go Colts. I think they are the better team, the saints will be able to go after the short DB's for the colts, it should be a wild shoot-out.

Hoping like hell for a Saints win, dont really think they have the horses though.

One good thing about this Super Bowl is that it will have the 2 best quarterbacks in the league going head to head. Whens the last time that happened?

It will be interesting to see if the Saints defense can knock around Manning like they did Favre. Also if they can get turnovers. They wont have AP to strip the ball from, but they've got turnovers all year by picks or punching the ball out, which they are good at.

I wouldnt place a bet on them, but Go Saints !

Me too. Wondering who Archie is going for....being a parent I'd say probably the Colts. But you have to wonder if he doesn't want the Saints to finally win one.

I like to believe that he's secretly rooting for the Saints since both of his boys have rings now. At least that's how I view it.

I am an AFC guy. Go Colts. Only when the Raiders play for it do I pull fort the NFC team. Maybe the Chiefs too....I've just never seen it in my lifetime.

I'll root for SD in the Super Bowl, but I don't think of them as a rival. Generally they don't matter.

Its always good to have an excuse for cajun (what we call coonass) food. We have had oysters, crawfish, and various other bayou trappings at Thanksgiving on several occasions. Its nice after being away from the delta to have some cultural goodies.

I think the Saints win by 13. Probably with a score like 34-21

The Saints have a better defense, they can really put pressure on the QB and if they hit Manning like they were hitting Farve, it won't be pretty for the Colts.

I personally think the Colts D is much better. They are more battle tested and played better teams throughout the year than did NO's. You never know though as last years Arizona D was terrible in regular season and turned it up and played at a super high level in playoffs.

While I agree that the Colts D is better, they did not play the better teams over who the Saints played. At the end of the season, the Saints strength of schedule was 0.2, the same as the Broncos. The Colts was -0.9.

Saints didn't look good in the game against the Vikes. But they had reassuring things, such as the turnovers and although Brees had only 197 yds, he did have 3 TD's no INTs. They've played schizophrenic for the last couple months, maybe that was their bad game and the good one is coming up.

If they even breathe hard on Manning, they'll be flagged for 15 yds.

That's partially the Saints players' fault for saying things to the press about hitting Manning no matter what the cost. They'll be watched. I hope that they can still be effective though...I want to see a good game.

Unfortunately, you're correct...that Rex Ryan moment won't do them any favors with an officiating crew that's bent on ultra protecting the Golden Boy in the first place.

I like a competitive game with the Colts sealing it with a TD late. They win by 10. It will probably be a TD pass to Dallas Clark.

Peyton Manning adds to his rep which will lead him to being the greatest QB of all time.

I don't really care who wins, which is very rare for me.

I like the Saints, but Manning is out of this world and I kind of feel like it'd be nice for him to have multiple rings so I can say in the future that I saw the greatest of all time in his prime.

I feel pretty much the same. Manning and Elway are the two best I have seen. If Manning keeps playing like this and racking up the statistics that he has shown the ability to do, I'll begrudgingly admit that he surpassed The Duke. He needs more superbowls though. Elway led the Broncos to 5.
