Hey, this is all YOUR criteria. By your definition, that means the Colts are not better than the Pats, which I truly do not think they are. The Colts got lucky yet again by a bad decision by BB. The Saints completely owned them. No luck was needed for them to win. The Colts squeaked by. Are you saying the Colts are better than the Pats even though luck played a role? Quit blowing smoke up your behind. The Colts are not a team that is invinsible, walks on water or unbeatable. They aren't the greatest of all time, far from it in fact. Your disrespect to other teams including the Saints is laughable at best. Up until now, the Colts have had nothing to brag about except for countless post season failures. Win something this weekend first before relishing in your own hype.

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

No I believe the Saints were the best team in the NFC this past season and were leaps and bounds better then the Vikings. However if you look at the game, you can't say on that night the Saints were the better team. They got the breaks and saw the Vikings commint stupid penalities. The game should have never been close, it should not have come down to going overtime. In neither of the Colts playoff games were the Colts outplayed and "had to pull out a win". I would say right now the main reason the Colts are favored is that issue and this is the Saints first trip.

And yes this season we were better then the pats, they got destroyed by the Ravens and we did what to them? Lets also review:

Most wins in a decade....come on you know who it is....COLTS
Most wins in a row in the regular season....come on....you know...Colts
Superbow 41 winner.....SAY IT...Colts

Now help refresh my memory....number of division wins this decade by Saints?
number of NFC titles this decade by Saints?
Number of SB appearances by Saints EVER?
Number of SB wins by SAINTS EVER?

Let me just say this. If the Saints hadn't been playing the Vikes so tough the other night, the Vikes most likely would not have committed those "stupid penalties." I give credit to the better team, our NEW ORLEANS SAINTS! Perhaps the Vikes were "lucky" to score as many points as they did!

The game I watched between the Vikings and Saints was an outstanding game. The Vikings did have a lot of turnovers, but they weren't caused by the wind or some phantom turnover ghost. The Saints caused those turnovers, like any good team does. In my eyes, the team that wins at the end of the game is the better team. I didn't think the Bengals were better than the Steelers this year and statistically they were better, but the score indicated differently. They won, no matter how they won, they were the better team.

Oh Lord, you lost your credibility with all the "regular season" wins. You know what anyone outside of Indy says about that...woo. The Steelers have 2 Lombardis this decade dude, don't even go there with me. Like I said, win something this weekend and then we'll see. Until then, the Colts are just another AFC team in the SB.

Are you guys aware that the outcome of the game isn't decided on a message board? The team that scores more points this Sunday will win and nobody here has any idea which team that will be. This is all just pointless speculation and clueless guessing.

You'd have to be an idiot to think an outcome of a game is decided by message boards. All this is, is fans voicing their opinions.

Only a moron would think that by us discussing the game, the Saints are a shoe-in to win. Everybody knows, the game will be determined by what team shows up. I have no doubt this will be a high scoring game between two high powered offenses.

I don't understand why everyone is getting so worked up about this. All games played before Sunday don't matter anymore. This is a clean slate. Stop over analizing things and just relax. You still have six days left.

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

A) How did your mighty D cause the bad hand off between Brett and AP there at the end of the first half? There wasn't a Saint player around?

B) How did the Saints D cause the Vikings to have 12 men in the huddle on that last drive of the game, basically taking them out of field goal range?

C) When the Saints do anything close to what the Colts have done over this past decade, then YOU will have some cred, as of right now, you are just a "lucky" NFC that made it to their first superbowl. Gee even a blind squirl gets lucky and finds a nutt every so often....

Simple, because it's what fans do, that is what is great about this sport and this game, it allows us fans to get crazy.

LOL, again you didn't see who posted to you. It's me, the Steelers fan that said that.

A) I'm an outsider posting an outsider's view of the game I watched. The 12 men on the field has nothing to do with the turnovers the Saints caused the Vikings to have.
B) You're comparing the Colts to the Saints? Saints are an up and coming team my friend. They have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball. I feel for Indy when PM retires cause that will be the Colts demise.
C) I will take the Lombardi's any day over regular season wins. You can happily have that title and live proudly with it. I will happily have the Lombardi's.

I might add also, as an outsider, you are greatly overlooking your opponent, something I'm sure your team is not doing. The Saints are a better balanced team. I see this more of a close game and I'm actually seeing the Saints coming out on top. And if that happens, the better team will have won.

I respect the Saints and have said they are the Best team in the NFC and deserve to be here and have a very good chance of winning the game. I believe that if the Colts play their type of game they should win.
