Who is going to win the Super Bowl?

I wonder how many such threads are posted on the web right now?

I'm pulling for NO.

Colts!

Yeah but this thread is in the best forum!

I'm hoping the Colts will continue their momentum that they gained during their takeback from the Jets!
I'm also from Indiana!

No wonder ye be for the Colts then.

Indiana is closer to me than Louisiana, and Indiana is part of the Big Ten. But I feel nothing in my heart for the Colts.

But I am not so pro NO that a tv will go sailing or anything, if they lose. I hope it is a good game - and that no real bad luck, nerves or rout befalls one team(at least not by half-time). I don't think I'd care to see a game decided also by if someone punched the ball out from a player who was carrying the ball quite properly. Nor if the game went to sudden death and the team who recieved the ball first, won.

I hope my mom's team wins, since it is her birthday tomorrow.

You'd never guess by the responses that Football is America's sport, would you?

I am not a NO fan because their play is a step or two lower than the old Chicago Bears or "Monsters of the Midway" that were just tough, but more legal on defense. Once they run into a ref with some good judgement, they could be severely handicapped until they get better defensive coaching.

It is good to see NO recover after spending 5 or 6 months there after Katrina, but they have a different outlook on the game and possibility of penalties (defense only). Kind or like the general NO legal attitude that you do what you can get away with.

Am I reading 'cheating' into what you say? Or is 'unethical' a more polite term? Something like how the guards played that football game in the movie, "The Longest Yard", with Burt Reynolds? Hmmmm...

And here, before reading your post, I already responded with what I have typed below that I had CCP'ed to myself, when responding to the new Super Bowl thread, that so far has disappeared into cyberspace?, down in the chat forum. This is what I said to that new poster, who started the thread:

I hear Peyton Manning is rooting for the Saints since his dad played on the team and Peyton lived there.

I have a feeling that many of those that really have no team loyalty watching the game, will be rooting for the Saints, for various reasons. High on that list will be the fact they have never been in one. And how Katrina devastated that city. It would be a small form of redemption of sorts, if they were to win.

I still am a little disappointed though to see that the Vikes did so well against the high-powered Saints, and gave that game away in more ways than one. That, and the coin toss at the end. So I still sorta feel the Vikes should be playing in the big game. I would have felt the Saints were a super powerful team if they whipped the Vikes. But the Vikes outgained them, even with all the misques, by about 225 yards!!! I'm sure the Colts have feasted on the information they garnered from watching the flilm of that game.

Man, are YOU ever good!

I watched the game and it appeared play was clean, and I found the game lived up to expectations, after a slow start.

Amazing how a first time Super Bowl QB could perform to that level, and not be unnerved. After all, all of Louisiana -perhaps much of the country - was counting on him! And did he ever perform. He upped his already league leading (of all time, to boot!) passes completed percentage from like 72 % to like 82% for the game! Amazing. Albeit the yards per pass average wasn't quite as much as Mannings.

And I really enjoyed his post game press conference. The man is a very polite and fluid speaker as well, and seems like a truly nice guy!

I also salute Peyton Manning and their coach, as they seemed quite gracious, even though they obviously and understandably were disappointed. They are both class act guys - and I wish them luck next year.

But for this year, it was almost some sort of devine destiny that NO came up the winner. If you believe in such stuff, look at some key in-the-hands drops the Colts had and the game ending interception - while considering that impossible 2-point conversion and on-side kick gamble by the Saints.

Good one.

Actually I was looking forward to seeing the first-ever sudden death overtime. Ah well. Beer 4U2

I bet that if that happened, you would have heard about phone wires and computers (angry e-mails, especially if the Saints came out on the bottom of the stick, if Peyton Manning led the Colts to the first score, to end it all) catching on fire - and the NFL commissioner quickly changing the present sudden death rule. I'd be willing to bet.

I can't believe people are paid big money and have such a ridiculous method of ending the game. Not with todays high powered offenses with lots of points being scored. By their reasoning that if a team is good, their defense should be able to stop the other teams offense, is a poor argument today. And especially so when all the high-powered offensive team has to do is get it in field goal range, to win, with no chance of redemption by the opposing team, if the kick is good. In college they don't dare kick a field goal on the first possession, because they might lose the game even if it's good!

In pro-golf majors, they make the tied players play an entire 18 holes all over again the next day! I wonder why they don't just do one hole. And allow the first golfer to win the coin toss, who putts the ball in the cup first, to win?
