Last year’s Super Bowl was arguably one of the best there has been, so it’s going to be hard to follow that up. Drew Brees and Peyton Manning will do their best to put on a show but I don’t see this game being the type of game we saw last year. I think the Colts are just too good.
There’s a reason that Peyton Manning will soon be the highest paid player in the NFL after this season, before we even know the outcome of Sunday’s game. He is one of the best, if not the best, to ever play the quarterback position. Manning has consistently shown he is one of the game’s greatest, and America will get to witness that first hand come Sunday.
Looking at the Saints, you have to admit they are lucky to be int he position they are. It’s not to say that they’re not a good football team, but they got out played in the NFC Championship against the Vikings. If it wasn’t for Brett Favre’s cross-body throw late in the fourth quarter, the Saints would probably be watching the game from home.
These are two high powered offenses, fueled by great quarterbacks. Both Brees and Manning have nice targets throughout the years but have also made players shine that aren’t big names just because of their abilities. They are both that good, and it should make for a very entertaining game on Sunday.
I’m not going to get into any in-depth analysis here, but my pick has to be with the Colts. You can’t go wrong with Peyton Manning; the guy knows how to win ball games. If the game can come anywhere close to being as good as last years it will be remembered for a long time, and let’s hope for some funny commercials this year as well. Enjoy the game!
