We have the best kind of D, D that shows up when it matters most.

If they were better our season would be over.

Tell Sharper and Vilma we don't have as good a defense. I bet the disagree with you too.

I don't care what the stats say. We have a first class defense.
I think your offense might be a bigger part of the reason you're in the Super Bowl. Both teams have adequate, opportunistic defenses but neither is great. Also keep in mind that neither will benefit from raucous home crowds like they have so far in the playoffs. I absolutely think this is a shootout with the team that executes better and makes fewer mistakes that day walks off with the Lombardi.

We should have an easier time runnung the ball on the Colts. That should open up a few more options for our offense. We also have to hit Manning like we hit Brett tonight. At least let Manning know that he can't hold the ball forever.

It will be a chess match between Manning and Williams. They are going to spend the first quarter feeling each other out.

Colts did pretty good against a Jets defense that held our offense to 10 points.

Re: COLTS D isn't like the Vikes D.

They are a different kind of Defense. They are smaller and faster than Minnesota. Anyone who thinks they are going to be easier to run on check out the stats from the AFC championship game. They shut the leading rushing team in the playoffs down. Freeney and Mathis are everybit the speed and power threat that Allen and Edwards were. The biggest difference is in the middle. I dont see this being any easier than what we just went through. It should be a great game.

Re: COLTS D isn't like the Vikes D.

We're probably going to be 8 or 9 point dogs because we're playing, IMO, the greatest football history of the league and he's got a very good supporting cast. But, as they say, that's why they play the game. Anything could happen on Super Bowl Sunday and I hope that we come out as aggressive as ever. Manning is going to be tough to get to because he gets the ball away so fast and recognizes blitzes quickly, so our secondary is going to have to make some plays.
