Very Random Super Bowl Thought

. . . as I just noticed that my 20 oz mustard bottle contains "40% more than our 14 oz"!!!! Anyway, all football experts will tell you that "defense wins championships." Well, Indianapolis ranks 18 out of 32 in defense (based upon total yards allowed) and New Orleans ranks 25th. And about the old adage that you "must run the ball to set up the pass"? The Colts are dead last in rushing in the NFL. (ESPN stats.) Edit: Oh, yeah. A great ending:

When the Saints were healthy, they ranked in the top ten in defense. They lost linebackers, their top defensiv lineman, starting defensive backs, and for a game or two they even had to bring players in who were not even in the league anymore. They are healthy now.

Your inborn sense of pride has you instinctually pulling for the underdog. (Thus your admiration for Baylor)

However, if you think the Saints have a chance to win the game you are setting yourself for disappointment.

Fact of matter- it will be a very uninteresting game by half time.

I'll be back say "told ya".

Bet with your mind not your heart.

Both teams can run the ball when they want to. They just usually don't have to.

The Saints play so wheels off that if they get a few breaks, they could win. However, the Colts are a machine and if they get it running smoothly, they can win.

Defense DOES win...but, in this case it will probably depend on who can get to the QB, and who can force turnovers
Don't really care who wins, just wanna see a good game

You have your own personal mustard? You said YOUR 20 ounce compared to OUR 14 ounce. My 20 ounce can kick you 14 ounce's ass.

Back to say I told you so.
Boy was I wrong!
Great game!
Too bad I bet with my mind instead of heart.
