Really? Well, how about this to make you question it? The Saints and Colts played 6 common opponents this year; the Dolphins, Jets, Cardinals, Rams, Pats, and Bills. We'll take out the Bills as I know you will say you guys didn't try. So between the remaining 5 teams, if you look at average of yards gained and points scored it boils down to this:

Colts 399.5 ypg 30.0 ppg
Saints 415 ypg 33.8 ppg

So, explain to me how there is no question that the Colts have the better offense. I'm not saying the Saints ARE better. I'm just saying that there is no question your statement is stupid.

THANK YOU Saint Michael! Although, now he's going to say, that stats don't have anything to do with it..... Watch.... Indy is like the greased up deaf guy, he can wiggle his way, out of anything he says.

Re: Colts Receivers better than Ours?

ok.....lets get back on topic.....sorry i missed this thread earlier cuz it would've been over a long time ago

reggie wayne and dallas clark had 100 catches during the regular season....they both had 10 TDs

they averaged 12.6 and 11.1 yards per catch respectively

now....none of our receivers had 100 catches....but 1 of them was over 1000 yards receiving with only 70 catches

our top 2 WRs averaged 15.3 and 15.8 ypc......so with that averaged out to 100 catches.....

colston would've had 1533 yards.....wayne only had 1264

henderson would've had 1578.......clark only had 1106

5 WRs on the colts scored TDs....pretty impressive.....except that the saints had 10 players score a receiving TD this season....not including a few dropped TDs by offensive linemen

so while we are guarding garcon, wayne and clark....you guys can guard colston, henderson, meachem, shockey, thomas, moore, reggie, pierre, and dinkins

oh and dont forget that streif is an eligible receiver when he comes in as an extra blocker because we will throw to him

some colts fan asked earlier how good our 4th WR was......

9 TDs.....is that alright?

so lets recap

your top WR is one of the best in the league....but is targeted more times than any WR on our team.....had our top WR been targeted as many times, he would've had a more productive season

your 2nd WR is a TE and had twice as many catches as our 2nd WR......you know what that tells me

your offense is 1 dimensional....you throw to either wayne or clark.....if i were gregg williams i wouldnt worry about collie or garcon or addai.....none of them are threats because the colts either throw it to wayne or clark

so....which WRs would the colts cover......please tell me because id love to tell you how the other 2 are going to rip your defense apart....oh and that running game of yours....tsk tsk

I wish more people would look at the big picture of the Saints wins this season and who they were against versus the Colts wins and who they were against. It's really not even comparable. The talking heads just love Peyton a little too much, maybe it's because of his years of PO failures. You guys just may be the beginning of the NFC dominance in the NFL should you win Sunday. You know, these things go in cycles, but the Saints will be a force for a good while.
I was thinking along the lines of a dynasty. Capped off in SB XLVII of course.

And as for the trolls here, let us not forget the absolute douchebaggery from the Vikes fans. This is nothing.

Douchebagitude would be the proper term for the Purple Pansy Sub Station.

Can't really call them a nation. There are just a few of them in MinnieSooooota.

Re: Colts Receivers better than Ours?

One word. Sharper

Another word. Harper

Yet another. Greer

Not to mention Gay, Porter, Fujita, Shanle and introducing Malcolm Jenkins.

The Dolts ain't ready for this. They just think they are. Remember
how the Saints shut down the Cardinals excellent WR's?

Who Dat ain't askeeert.

They are going to hit Manning early, often and hard. Mark my words.
Observe and learn, Hater Nation.

Ask Warner and Favre Bean how it worked out for them. The Saints D
wasn't supposed to be able to touch them either.

Errrrrnt. Dolts are going down. Pants on the ground.
