Dome teams playing on grass?

Do yall think this will affect the types of plays the Saints and Colts run. I like the fact that we are playing a dome team. It will be interesting to see if our styles of play change. Weather should play a big part in the game.

We have an awesome running game and the Colts are ok at best. I watched the replay tonight against the Queens and we really shut down their receivers accept their tight end in the second half. If we hit PM like we did Favre, I think we can rattle his bones.

P.S. I still cant believe we are going to the Super Bowl. It feels so good and we all deserve it. I love you guy and girls here on the BnG.

Big shout out to you Halo for keeping this site alive.

WHO DAT!!!!!!!!!

SUPER BOWL CHAMPS 2009 :)

A lot of people underestimate our running game. We use it when we need it. You will probably be surprised.

I donít think the grass will have much effect on the game.

Im not saying that they are terrible, but I saw an interview the other day with one of your players that said we dont rely on the run, we are built to pass.

Kind of like the Saints of last year.

Our pass sets up our running game. It works for us. I read a stat somewhere last week (not sure how true it is) which said the Colts have the best average per run inside the red zone.

Geez freebo, you really move around the net, huh?

Anyway, all I know is that the 2 best teams are playing the last game of the season. Should be a good game.

Btw, this board is much better than saintsreport. Seems to be less smack over here. I hate childish chest thumping.

Re: Dome teams playing on grass?

Welcome aboard guys. You will find this board, for the most part, very hospitable, to fans of other teams. Although, we have our rowdy fans, just like other boards as well.

I see this game, being one of the greats. Two high powered offenses, and in my opinion, two very underrated defenses, going at it. And honestly, I think all the grass will do, is make it even more of an even match. We will see.
