1.) Our run defense is not suspect. You are stuck in previous years. We just held the two best running offenses to 87 YPG in our playoff games, and we contained Maurice Jones Drew and Chris Johnson 4 times in the regular season.

2.) Freeney is a liability to the Colts run defense. Having him out will hurt the Colts, but it will help us against the run. Dwight has improved, but we're used to seeing 3 or 4 plays a game where dwight is in the backfield and a run play to his side gets 6-7 yards.

Also, Reggie Wayne said he'll play, and the ligiment is NOT torn.

Re: Dwight Freeney, star defensive end for the Indianapolis Colts, may miss Super Bowl XLIV with serious ankle injury

From a "Football" perspective (and of course I'm hoping he can't play or is limited for obvious Saints-related reasons), I read the injury happened because he pulled up early to keep from hitting "Sanchize" in the AFC Championship game.

I'd say the Colts would be happy to take that 15 yard penalty in retrospect. The NFL rules babying QB's have simply gone too far.

Can't wish injury on any player so close to a SB. If he is, too bad. But I still think he will make it. At the end of the game, we will only remember which team won.

Really? Have you asked Chris Johnson how suspect it is? have you asked Ray Rice or either of the Jets RB how "suspect it is"? The Saints don't have anyone close to the talent of a Chris Johnson, or a overall running game on the level of the Jets or Ravens, so keep thinking we are suspect as you finish with less then 75 total yards rushing for the night.

yes mr 4192 we may land up with 80 or 90 yards but the passing game will make up the lessor, if payton opens up the passing game which he kept unwraped much of the year, then watch for p.t. to tame your big pitbulls from the outsides on masterful hiden screens that will put the running backs into unheard of all purpose yards which could give a rats ass on the running yardage. all that said you may want to sit d. freeny

We shut down a very good Cardinal passing game on their own field. You guys will score, but I don't see you putting up more then 28 pts.

man i think we'll have to if were going to win this game. i said early last week we'll need the same points or more to win the superbowl.its going to be a shootout like c. berman wants. the #2 de in the nfl could not get to drew, they bother him but handled them enough to win the nfc championship

The colts have no chance, they are weak against the run, they haven't played anyone, manning is overrated, colts can't run, freeney is hurt and drew will have all day, no special teams, colts have a polian hand puppet for a coach, the refs give them all the calls, they are soft finesse bunch of wussies, and lastly, the saints are the best team of all time.

Saints 52

Colts 3 (maybe)

Feel better guys? That's what you want to hear, isn't it?
