Which team has the edge if Manning or Brees gets hurt?
 
The biggest "What If?'' of all. Not to jinx or wish ill will on anyone, but imagine the reverberations of the Colts losing Peyton Manning or the Saints losing Drew Brees to injury just five snaps into the Super Bowl, like the Texas Longhorns did their senior quarterback, McCoy, in last month's BCS National Championship Game against Alabama at the Rose Bowl. Advantage who? We're talking about Manning and Brees, the top two vote-getters in this year's MVP balloting.
"Oh, it'd be over if Peyton went down early,'' Broncos' Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey told me late Sunday night, after helping the AFC win the league's all-star game at Sun Life Stadium. "The Colts would be done. The only good thing about it for the Saints if Brees went down, at least they've got [Mark] Brunell, with his experience.

After watching the Carolina game, I'm not too confident in Brunell. Maybe they give Chase Daniel a go at it, but then again, he hasn't had any real play time.

Either QBs would be better than Painter. While he has the potential to one day be a decent starting quarterback, Curtis Painter still has a lot to learn before he can even be considered for a starting position.

IMO, I'd give the advantage to the Saints.

I'm not sure about the question...so let me break it down. OK...Drew gets hurt, then we got Brunell against Peyton...edge Colts. If Peyton goes down, they have their back-up...Painter is it??? against Brees...so, edge Saints.

So, unless I'm missing something, it's pretty obvious that if either team loses their QB, the other team will instantly have the edge. Now...if both lose their QB's, then it's a no-brainer that we have the edge, IMO.

All I know for sure is Painter will be saying Novena's that Manning doesn't get pants on the grounditis.
