Here some final thoughts on the Superbowl. I thought you shouldn’t bet against Manning . I also thought that whatever teams defense steps up would be the outcome. I thought the Colts would win but I’m glad the Saints did. I also wanted more than anything(because it's all about me
) An entertaining game. It certainly was well played fast moving and suspense filled. Even down by 14 you can't count Manning out. It was totally entertaining with teh two best teams and the Saints simply prooved they were the best this year.
I think Shawn Payton showed guts doing a few things that conservative NFL coaches just don’t do 4th and goal going for it. I think 30 other coaches would have kicked the Field Goal. Payton went for it and Belichick would have went for it or tried a Field goal depending on what he thought gave his football team the best chance to win.
The onside kick outstanding 31 other coaches would have kicked it away. They got a break thanks to Hank Baskett. Probably being just as surprised by it as all of us..
It took guts to do it and it paid off in a big way.
I thought this was going to be a blow out in the first quarter 10-0 Colts. The Saints took control in the second quarter and didn’t look back. I thought Brees was awesome an I thought manning did his job. It’s a different game if Wayne or Garcon hold onto catchable balls.
Here is the one part I didn’t get with the Colts. They were the 29th team in rushing in the league. Why? Did Caldwell decide to go with the run? It was almost as if the Saints expected it. If you notice Manning had lots of time the Saints stayed back and played the receivers which also paid off with a huge interception return by Porter.
On this day the Saints just had it and the Colts didn’t. The Saints were prepared and they wanted this game. Good for them and good for the City of New Orleans.
