I already feared for the worst when Indianapolis was leading 10:0 in the first quarter, but fortunately, the Saints woke up and turned it around. As a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, I congratulate the New Orleans Saints on their first Superbowl title. You deserve to be called World Champions now!

I'm gonna tell you what the game changer was: It was that onside kick at the start of the third quarter. They took lots of chances with that kick, and the gamble paid off. The same goes for the challenge of the incompletion of the two-point conversion. And let's not forget the quarterback killer Tracy Porter: First he picks off Favre in the NFC title match, and now Peyton Manning in the Superbowl. Those plays/decisions were a work of perfection.

Only the defence made me nervous, because many times over, Manning could pass without problems, and the running game of the Colts also had no major problems. But fortunately, they recovered just in time and where there when they were most needed.

Well good thing I didn't bet on the Colts. The Saints came to play and they deserved it. Have to hand it to a team that came down from 10-0 in a game that looked like the Colts were running away with early. But they held on and late turnovers cost the Colts in a game that might have gone to overtime.

Good for the Saints, they deserved this.

Onside kick to begin the the second half after being stopped at the one?? Ballsy.



If you was right..................I'd agree with you

Go SAINTS. As a Patriots fan, I hate the Colts, and Manning with a passion. I think the entire Manning family and they're football success sickens me (of course i'm being a hater and completely kidding, don't jump down my throat).

But on a much larger level, the SAINTS win their first SB, and Drew Brees is an absolute class act. I wish the NFL had 32 QB's like him. He is probably the only player in the league I would rather have play QB for the Patriots than Brady. It must be great to cheer for a franchise with players that play with as much passion as the Saints do.

Congrats to New Orleans for their win and their new Mayor, a brand new start for that city.

That's like hating your boss because he's better at your job than you. The Mannings work hard and get good results. Plus they're an upstanding family off the field as well. You can't say the same about Tom Brady. Granted, Brady and Manning claim a friendship, but still...

Yeah, I'll agree the onside kick was a game-changer. Sometimes slow and steady (and conservative) wins the race. Other times, sheer luck and gutsy, borderline stupid play-calling does. If Brackett had gotten his hands on that ball, Indy would have likely taken it in for a TD. And probably won the whole smash.

If I could die right now.    . Dude I said I was kidding. And I can say the same about Tom Brady. Just because he doesn't show up in ESPN commercials with Giselle and Their kid, doesn't mean they don't have a good family. As for working hard, Tom Brady was a backup at Michigan for 2 years before he actually got to start. He was very close to not even starting at Michigan. He was drafted 199th overall and had to hope and pray that he would get a chance to be something in this league. Unlike Manning, known for being Archie's kid, got the best QB coaches, went to one one of the best schools and got drafted first overall. He's a hard worker, but it's kind of dumb to suggest that you can't say the same about Brady.

Oh, Brady's an excellent QB who's worked hard to achieve his success...I never suggested he wasn't. I just suggested that, you know, leading such a sucky private life--cheating on your pregnant supermodel girlfriend with another--is pretty lousy. Goes back to "there's more to being a good man than just being good at your job."

BACK ON TOPIC....if anyone had to beat the Colts, I'm glad it was the Saints. I like Drew Brees and think they're well-coached.

   The Saints were spinning their wheels up to that point. Their defense was never able to stop the Colts all game, and their offense had dominated the entire second quarter and only managed to come away with 6 points. The onside kick gave them the spark that they needed, and it was a different game from that point on. An incredibly gutsy move, but sometimes you've got to go for those when you're not as good as the opposition (and I still think that the Colts are a better team than the Saints, but the Saints played harder in the second half, and that tends to make up for a lot).

Congratulations to New Orleans. There hasn't been a whole lot to celebrate there of late - they deserve to have a party tonight.

It's his life. When Tom Brady steps out of a stadium after a football, whatever kind of private life he chooses to live is none of my business, unless it's harming someone or an animal or himself. Then it's my problem. If he wants to bang cocktail waitresses like Tiger Woods, let it be. I never understood people's insane paranoia, with celebrities' private lives.

I do think that amazingly gutsy call to start the third quarter was the reason why the Saints won. But in many ways I HATE that call, because it continues the trend of too many NFL coaches making coaching decisions that are either going to be spectacularly great or horribly disastrous.

The way you describe it, I can't wait until the Superbowl highlights are available in NFL Films format, with the usual dramatic narration and the radio commentators.

Agreed, I just can't stand games that have unpredictability and game changing moments. I much prefer conservative play calls involving plenty of 5 yard slant passes, runs up the middle, and punts to win the field position battle. Such a shame that someone would deface the game by going out on a limb during the superbowl.

I think I'm most impressed with NO's field goal kicker. They said something like of all Super Bowl kickers, he had made the least number of FGs coming into the game. He'd had a total of 22 made field goals in 24 attempts in his career. And he freaking nailed 3 of them - and not short ones either: 44, 46, and 47 yards.

Interestingly, the Colts had 100 more yards of offense than the Saints. Time of possession was almost even.
