My analysis: Why the Saints will shock the world tomorrow.

I love to watch the media. I've come to the realization that they are conservative, lazy creatures of habit.

Most have come to the conclusion that the Colts will win tomorrow. This is based on the aforementioned lazy conservativeness and a few maxims. So let's get to it.

Peyton Manning is the best QB.: This is the primary one. The Colts cannot be beaten because they have Peyton. Payton is a genius, an OC on the field. As I see it, there would be an objective measurement to back this up. Let's take a stab at it.

Offenses score points. So I guess the team that scores the most points would have the best QB. Well the Saints scored the most points in the NFL this year.

QBs throw TDs. So I guess the QB that threw the most TDs would be the best QB. Last I checked both in the regular season and playoffs, Drew Brees threw the most TDs.

QBs should not throw interceptions. Interceptions are bad for offenses. So I would guess that the QB that threw the least INTs would be the best QB. Both in the regular season (11 to 16) and in the playoffs (0 to 1) Drew Brees threw the least interceptions.

QBs should have a high QB rating, which encapsulates all the relevant QB stats. Brees: 116 Manning: 104 (that's playoffs). Brees also had the highest QB rating in the regular season.

So who's the best QB?

Turnovers: In the 34 Superbowls when a team has won the turnover battle, 31 of them have won the game (A 91% clip). The Saints were #2 in turnovers for the year and have gathered up 7 TOs in their two playoff games.

Running the football The Colts are dead last in running the football.

While it won't be a shock to the WHO DAT! Nation, the rest of the world is in for a big surprise come tomorrow.

I see a New England type score in the Saints immediate future:

Saints 38 Colts 14

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

Re: My analysis: Why the Saints will shock the world tomorrow.

When Hartley kicked that field goal to lead us to the Superbowl, all of those years of waiting for this moment (early 70's) hit me with such force, that even today I feel like it isn't real. Win or lose, they will be champions.

Re: My analysis: Why the Saints will shock the world tomorrow.

nice analysis::
for my 2 cents...the colts shut down the run vs the jets and ravens...both teams do not have the passing attack that we do...wanna shut down pt? go for it..brees will have a carreer day..wanna shut down the pass? get ready for pt to take over..

on d its pretty much peyton vs sharper and the db's....dallas clark worries me though

Re: My analysis: Why the Saints will shock the world tomorrow.

One type of turnover wins more games - Interceptions. Compare:
Number (or %age) of Interceptions by Brees and Manning
Number of interceptions by defenses.

I am going with our running game. Their Defense can not stop the fact that we can run and pass.

SFIAH - While your posts and your analysis is good, I just don't think they hold a candle to my superb logistical and statistical analysis.

Heres mine:

The Saints will win. You heard it here first folks! Sorry SFIA - didn't mean to out do you there!!! LOL!

Re: My analysis: Why the Saints will shock the world tomorrow.

I am honestly overwhelmed by all the media talk, blogging, analysis and such. Sunday cannot come soon enough. I 100% feel that our best effort can earn us a Championship and I am praying we deliver it. I cannot even imagine how amazing this will feel tomorrow night.
