While I would have rather seen the Vikings in the Super Bowl this year, the story lines are still pretty good. You have the city represented team, the New Orleans Saints and the city hero arm slinging, Indianapolis Colts.
The Saints have turned into being the representative of the city of new Orleans. Everyone knows what happened to the city a few years a ago with hurricane Katrina, and the destruction it cause to the city. All hope was lost and and the Saints were in question of having to move and no longer be home to New Orleans. They were one of the worst teams in the league for a long time. Finally with some fan support, some key stars, and a good head coach this team has made it to their first Super Bowl in franchise history. One less team to the list that has yet make t to the Super Bowl. Now they head to Miami to face the Colts who know what it is all about to be in this kind of stage, because a few years ago they won their own Super Bowl.
When you hear you hear the team name Colts, it is almost automatic that you think the quarterback, Peyton Manning. Maybe the best to ever play the position, and compared to a robot slinging machine, with scary accuracy. Manning makes his receivers stars. Like Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark; even though they are good themselves. He makes the team step up to entire new level of playing, and picks apart the defense bit by bit until they win. Manning works hard and plays hard and he wins. If you mention a running game in Indianapolis, people will probably stare at you then start walking away laughing.
So in a few hours the two teams will meet. The Colts are the favored team in this game by five points. This game is mostly a game of each side of the game. For the offensive side, it the fight to the first team to not score a touchdown. For the defenses it will be if they can make a stop against the high flying offenses. Both teams have for the most part relied on their offenses to put up points. This game though I believe it will come down to what the defense and front guys can do. If they can get after the quarterbacks their team have the best chance at winning the Super Bowl. It may just come down to has the ball last in the game to see if they are going to be able to win.
While I think the Colts may have a slight advantage with being at a stage this big before a few years ago, and I think that they might win, I personally have to cheer for the Saints. They beat the Vikings, and that doesn't make me feel good, but if at least they win the Super Bowl I can at least say that they lost the the Super Bowl champs. Also I feel like the Saints winning would be huge for the city of New Orleans, which at the moment needs all the help, support, and hope they take. Also it being their first time and the Colts winning the Super Bowl just a few years ago, I would like to see another team win, and why not have it be their first.
So here it is, while I have missed a few, my final game score prediction of the 2009- 2010 season. I have to at least have to think that the team I want to win is going to win, so here it is.
Saints: 41 Colts: 38
