My Super Bowl XLIV Prediction

After 266 games, it all comes down to this. You've heard all the hype, you've seen all the puff pieces on New Orleans and Peyton Manning's "God-like abilities", you've placed all your bets on who will win the coin toss and how long the national anthem will last. When you wade past all the BS that surrounds the Super Bowl this week, you are left with a game that has the potential for a lot of points and a lot of fun. Of course, since the last two Super Bowls have been incredibly entertaining, we are due for a stinker.

After a season of picking every NFL game, here is my final pick of the year. Remember, all picks are made strictly based on who I think will win and do not take the spread into consideration.

Last Week: 2-0, 1.000
Playoff Overall: 5-5, .500

Super Bowl 44
Saints @ Colts, 6:25 pm
How this game will go should be determined by the Colts first drive. If Peyton Manning marches the team right down the field for a touchdown, it's going to be a long game for New Orleans. Should the Saints throw some different looks at Peyton and force the Colts to punt, we should have a good game on our hands. Really, this entire game comes down to whether the Saints defense can come up with that elusive gameplan that forces Manning to make mistakes. Since there isn't enough talent on the Saints D to make up for poor gameplanning, all of the pressure is on what Gregg Williams has come up with to disrupt and confuse the Colts QB. Of course, we all know Manning has seen everything you can possibly throw at him, so that's going to be a tall order. As for the Saints offense, I expect them to put up at least 20 points as they will be able to move the ball all day on the Colts. If both defenses completely fail, a distinct possibility, this game will simply come down to who has the ball last. I see Manning and the Colts marching on the Saints all day in this one, forcing New Orleans in some mistakes as they play catch up. My pick: Colts 34, Saints 28

That is my final pick of this NFL season. Check back next season for my picks for the 2010 season! Feel free to discuss, argue or make your own picks in the comments section.
