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....

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.

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.

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

Wow. I say that Indy's run defense is "suspect", and the roof falls in. Geez, awfully sensative on that subject I guess. Anyway, here's the deal, and let me say this for everyone in the cheap seats. THE REGULAR SEASON, DOESN'T MEAN CRAP IN THE PLAYOFFS. The Colts beat a number five seed, that wasn't supposed to get past the wildcard, to win the AFC, so there is a stat that isn't measured by the NFL. It's called HEART. If you love stats SOOO much, go check play off stats, and let's compare. By those stats, these two teams aren't that far apart.

And for the record, the Saints didn't get to this game, because they won a freaking coin toss. They won 13 games, before losing to the Cowboys. AND, we won two play off games to get here now. Blame it on luck, O.J., global warming, WHATEVER floats your damn boat! We are here, and we are NOT going to mail it in on Sunday, so you better eat your Peyton's, I mean Wheaties, and get ready to knock some heads.

You guys talk about how we think we are so great, and invincible, and the Colts have no chance? I talk about football. Matchups, plays, and abilities. At no point have you seen me running down the hall of B&G, in my Saints gear, singing WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS. I understand that this game can go either way. BUT, if you expect me to concede, that by your analogies, that you are right, and that WE don't have a chance, you should hit the door right now Indy fan. I don't concede a damn thing, and I NEVER WILL.

Now, with all that said, if you would like to discuss THE GAME SUNDAY, then I will be more than willing to do so. If you want to discuss the NFCCG, then I suggest you move your knowledge over to the Vikings board. They are still interested in talking about it, I am not.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

Right- we won the game against the skins- i was there boss. Offense looked pretty good- Defense was another thing. Hard playing without like 6 starters, lmao.

Pats worked your d out, end of story.

That Offense led by Brees who is the leader during the reg season for QB Rating, and 3rd in the playoffs- well both times he is in front of PM. #1 in the reg season in O, 8 places in front of indy. 6th in rushing- 131 YPG. Indy is last, LMAO! You are 2nd in passing- us 4rth, a whole 10 yards behind you PG. Brees threw 1 more TD than PM, and 5 less INT's. Wait- why did he win MVP??? Everything I find continues to show him 2nd.

Alll stats-we could go on and on- point is we will find out Sunday. The Colts are a great team, with a great QB. It will be tough for us to win, but I like our chances against the Colts

I like to complain about people who don't think like me. Then I project and say they're complaining. Who am I?

Like I said, I see it being a very close game, but most of the Colts games this season were close and could have gone either way, so we'll see. Should be a good game. Back to the topic of Freeney, if it's true and he's out for the SB, I do see this hampering the Freeney/Mathis combo. Not trying to be disrespectful myself, but I'm not that crazy about the Colts D. In particular, the secondary. If it comes down to which D is going to win the game, I would put that in the favor of the Saints. If the Saints are watching tapes of the Indy/Miami game, they'll pound through the Colts D. That was one of the most lopsided unreal wins I think I've ever seen. While the Colts D has definitely improved, but it's not great. Freeney is a big part of that and without him, it may have more of a negative impact than you might think.

Well no they did get to the big dance by winning the coin flip, had the Vikings won the coin flip I am willing the bet they would have won. That is the problem with the NFL overtime system.

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

The Saints don't run a wildcat like the Dolphins do. The Saints operate a more traditional offense, one that the Colts D has seen game in and game out this past season. I believe Freeney will play, at about 50-60% and on known passing downs. Having him not at 100% will hurt, but I believe we have the speed and other players to more then compensate.
