Not the greatest game in SB history but at least you didn't win by just field goal Darn it, did I just really type that Seriously, good game and hats off to you guys on your first Vince Lombardi Trophy
Now, I know I posted somewhere on here about Peyton not being as good as everyone thinks he his and I feel he's over rated. I'm pretty sure I commented something along the line of...if he gets pressure, he folds and that's not what I see great quarterbacks doing. Well guys...tonight was a perfect example of what I was getting at He might have the numbers on paper, the hype with the press and all the commercial contracts but there's more to judging greatness than just those things.

The Saints did play a good game. They accomplished the important thing to win- keep Manning off the field.
The on-side kick to start the second half was a brilliant tactic, but I must say that even though it was perfectly legal it was certainly a low down, underhanded dirty tactic. Had they not done that I'm sure the outcome would have been different.
I'm happy Brees won and got the MVP. I'm also glad I don't have TV reception to listen to all the bleeding hearts gush about how this is good for the city and its suffering- going on FIVE YEARS after Katrina.
Way to go Saints, the on-side kick was a ballsy move! When the game started I commented to my wife that I'd like to see someone open the game with one. The defenders all head backwards before the balls kicked, it'd take guts because if it backfires you pretty much hand points to the other team. !
I really didn't think Manning folded, I can't stand the guy, but he played a good game. The interception was a good pass, just a great play by the defender.
