    Superbowl XLIV: Indianapolis Colts vs. New Orleans Saints @ Sun Life Stadium

    Well, let's get it started.

    I'll be in Orlando for it, so I may not be able to post then.

    I'm definitely rooting for the Colts here.

    I'm guessing the early line will be Colts (-4).
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I wonder how many times Archie Manning will be asked how hard it will be to root against the Saints.?

    Or Vilma and Garcon's Haitian roots will be discussed.

    I think the line will open at Indy -3.5.

    I think the final line will be Indy -5.5.

    They changed the name of the stadium again? I liked Land Shark!

    It would be nice had the Colts decided not to be pansies and go for history. They could be going for 19-0 and a team that everyone would remember.

    Now, most people will have to think for a minute in 10 years (and still probably not get it) who won the 2010 Super Bowl.

    The NFL doesn't give trophies to teams with undefeated regular seasons.

    They only give trophies to SB Champs.

    That trophy is all that matters!!

    Damn straight! I've already decided I'm taking the day off after the game. I'll need a day to recover from a devastating loss/or go to the victory parade. Either one.

    However teams that go undefeated and win the Super Bowl go on to live in our memories forever. Most folks can't remember who won the Super Bowl in 2002, however folks always remember the 72 Dolphins.

    People have opinions that go either way on this matter. I feel that if you have a chance to make history, you go for it.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Undeafeated no doubt would have been great, but again it all comes down to winning the SB.

    Colts fans in general were very angry when they pulled the starters against the Jets, but the next week in Buffalo when they played on a slick, snow covered field just ripe for danger, the anger from the fans for the most part kinda went away.

    However they played Dallas Clark and a few others to meet personal records. I just don't get pulling them in the Jets game one week but have them start on slick turf in Buffalo so they can get there catches. Seems like a double standard.

    My biggest thing is this if you have a chance to do something only one other team has done (72 Dolphins) you go for it. It's the difference between being great and becoming legendary.

    No one's going to remember who won the 2010 SB in 10-15 years anyway unless you're one of those geeks who remembers SB winners from the past 40 years.

    Did Cal Ripken shut it down 2 months before his streak to get ready for an AS game or playoffs? (If he was even in playoff contention.)
