    Jets not getting much respect? Every time I watch ESPN they have some statistic showing that the Colts are guaranteed to lose.

    Re: Superbowl Matchup

    I Cant shake the feeling that this is going to be one of those games where Brett throws for like 350 yds but like 3-4 INTs.

    Brees turns it over less to make it Elder Manning's old team vs Peyton Manning.

    *Edit*

    I think ESPN is hoping for Colts vs Vikings so they can drool all over Brett Favre for another 2 weeks.

    I was referring to the fact that out of 44 votes 41 are for the Colts to make the Super Bowl and only 3 votes are for the Jets to make it. So, at least on RedsZone, I don't see a lot of respect for them if that poll is any indication.

    I am convinced that the Colts will not be able to gain 1 yard on the Jets D.

    This is because the Colts are, factually, a very good team, as are the Saints and Vikings, (I don't believe the Jets are, but okay), as well as the the fact that there are a lot of Colts fans here.

    Good team + Lots of fans here = LOTS of votes (1 of them mine)

    Here's an interesting article on why CBS wants the Jets to lose today.

    We have one team in the Colts without a running attack vs another team in the Jets that does have a running attack and a better defense too. Upsets can happen.

    I wouldn't rank the Colts as high as the Saints or Vikings. It doesn't matter who wins today, the NFC team will most likely be the favorite in the Super Bowl.

    I'll take that bet. The Colts are the favorites to win the Super Bowl according to Vegas. They will be favored against either the Saints or Vikings.

    Wow, that's surprising (at least to me).

    Re: Superbowl Matchup

    I think, after much reflection, that I want to see a Saints v. Jets Super Bowl. My rationale is:

    1. The Jets beating Indy would go down in history as one of the all-time greatest "karma is a beytoch" moments in sports history. The then-undefeated Colts rolled over and played dead at the end of the season and, as a result, the Jets made the playoffs. Being eliminated by that same Jets team in the post-season would be an amazing end to that story.

    2. I want to see the Saints win a Super Bowl, and I want to see Archie Manning there to celebrate with the team, wearing the black and gold. Manning is a beloved figure in New Orleans and was the lone bright spot on some truly awful teams -- he deserves to enjoy watching his team and his city win the big one without the distraction of having it come at the expense of his son's team.

    3. I don't want to see a shootout in the Super Bowl, and this is one of the two matchups (the other being Jets / Vikings) where you wouldn't be insane to bet the under.

    The Colts ran the ball for 101 yds against the best defense against the rush in the NFL. They have enough of a running attack to keep teams honest.

    The Colts could run the ball better, they just do not commit to it.

    Which is the bigger surprise, the Colts running for 101 yds or the Jets only running for 86 yards?

    It's a moot point now, but what I meant at the time was Favre winning a Superbowl with a hated rival of Green Bay would be a big **** you to the organization that closed the door on him. It's no coincidence that Favre landed in Minnesota this year. That choice had some revenge factor figured in.
