Bold Super Bowl Predictions

The team that scores more points will win.

I'm rooting for the Colts, which apparently makes me a Republican or something. I do have to say that while I've enjoyed the Manning-era Colts, at this point they've managed to make consistent success incredibly boring. They're play calling just doesn't do very much that's exciting to watch, even if it's highly effective. They're a sight to see during the 2-minute drill, but for the rest of the game there's not much that happens. The Saints, on the other hand, are a delight to watch this year.

Complete greater Nawlins area (born in the suburb Metairie) homer here. That out of the way, reasons the Saints can win:

1. Colts defense, especially with lead pass rusher Dwight Freeney. If his torn ankle ligament slows him down as expected, the Colts' poor secondary could get carved up.

2. Colts don't run the ball well. Hasn't slowed them down that much, but still.

3. Saints defense gets turnovers. They caused, what, five fumbles against the Vikes, so even if Manning is at his best they can still win that battle.

4. Brees, Bush, Colston, Meachem, Henderson, Thomas, Moore, Shockey, etc. Saints offense is so loaded you forget players.

5. We're bound to win one Super Bowl before our city falls in the ocean. :P
