    I'm admittedly picking with my heart now and not my head. Because I won't be able to live with myself if I pick Chicago and New Orleans actually wins, plus I can't bring myself to pick a Manning over Belichick.

    New Orleans over Chicago
    New England over Indianapolis

    Saints and Colts...but both teams will need to step it up a bit from last week...The colts wont win this one with Field Goals...

    tho if there is a Pats/Bears Superbowl, it will be a repeat, and the last time the Bears beat the CRAP out of the Pats, so I wouldnt mind seeing a grudge match superbowl...

    Drew Brees... if you ever decide not to wear gloves again in a cold weather game, I'm never picking your team again. :( Congrats Bears.

    The Way NO played, they deserved to lose...even if both QBs had that "lost" look in their eyes...Chicago defense pulled it out for a lousy offense....

    You're blaming their loss on his lack of gloves? :lol: I never would have guessed that gloves knew how to pass-block. =oP

    How about you give the Bears some credit?

    Aegis...Brees' accuracy was just as much to blame as the excellent pass defence...for the first quarter, he missed damn near every pass he threw...and didnt start hitting receivers on target until after halftime...

    Not saying that the pass protection wasnt top quality...some amazing deflections...

    Super Bowl

    Quarterback- Adv. Colts- Peyton should do better against a defense that's not as good. In the playoffs, 5 of his six picks were against players who have led the league in picks one season, Law with ten, Reed with 9, and Samuel with tn.

    Running Game- Adv. Saints- Bush beats Addai, McAllister kills Rhodes.

    Offensive Line- Adv. Colts (Glenn beats Brown, Saturday beats Faine, Diem beats Stinchcomb, while Lilja and Scott are about equal with Evans and Nesbit).

    Defensive Line- Adv. Colts- Colts have better pass rushing ends while NO has better run stopping ends, but IND clearly has better DT's with the addition of McFarland.

    Linebackers- Adv. Saints- Simoneau, Fujita and Shanle have been solid. Indy's linebackers are fast but not good tacklers.

    Secondary- Adv. Colts- Jackson, Harper, and David are perfect fits for the cover 2 system, not much speed is requried but great quickness, awareness and tackling. Sanders is their best run stopper, and Bethea has been great.

    Special Teams- Even- Saints have better return game, with Bush and Lewis, but Indy can kick and punt much better.

    Coach- Even- Payton changed the Saints from the underachieving "Aints" to a solid, disciplined, surpise team. But look at Dungy's regular season success the past four years. I couldn't pick either of them.

    Final Pick- Colts

    Aside from that, comparing one RB to another to determine who has an edge is silly. It should be Running Game A Vs. Run Defense B.
