And I, you, sir haha.

I really couldnt have picked two better teams to be in the Bowl cuz when it comes down to it, Peyton Manning is the man. He's a baddass on the field and is also just a good guy. Buuut, I've been waitin since forever for my Bears to make it here. So ofcoure I gotta pull for them ha. It should be a great game.

Colts. Peyton deserves it, he's later in his carreer and will never be regarded as a true NFL great unless he can get a Superbowl under his belt.

You just started this thread cos you wanted another chance to love up the bears! smile

I'd like to see the Colts win because so many of them really deserve it. Payton is a technically brilliant quarterback and if he'd have been with a better team he would have gone all the way several times for sure. Dungy deserves it because he totally turned around the Tampa bay Buccaneers and really set them up for their Superbowl win. You can see that despite the fact that he was booted out the season before they won it, it was all his groundwork that took them there because since they have spiralled back down to oblivion. If anything was going to stop the Colts it would have been the defence who were not great all season. But they have really stepped up for the playoffs and made it a well rounded team.

How the Bears got to the superbowl I don't know. Defence is pretty good but the offence is terrible and Rex Grossman makes as many bad plays as good. If they win then I think it would be through luck more than anything else. I'd like to see them lose and come back strong next season cos if they win it'll prolly go to their heads.

The players union should really take care of them. You know in another 20 or 30 years we are gonna still be hearing the same stories because although players now earn millions a lot of them are wasting it all and not thinking about their future.

Knowing that Rex Grossman got a Superbowl ring and Peyton didn't would never ever sit quite right with me. Nor would it seem possible.

They got here because of a 13-3 record. They got that through a dominating defense and the best special teams in the NFL. The offense has been shaky, but a win is a win. Plus, you have to remember that Grossman is basically still a rookie, having just completed his first 16 game season. He has definitely shown promise, and has improved in the playoffs by not throwing into "gray areas". He understands not to force the ball through holes and not to try to thread the needle downfield. Also, we have an amazing running tandem of Thomas Jones, who rushed for 129 yards and 2 TDs on only 19 carries last week!!! Plus, Cedric Benson won't go down easily and is a threat on 3 and short or red zone situations. The only problem was Rex Grossman, and it was in his head. He is learning not to make stupid mistakes, and I trust him this weekend.

Everyone seems to discredit the Bears and attribute their great season to luck. All year nobody has given them their due, and that is carrying into the playoffs. So far, they've proved the critics wrong (for the most part).

Lastly, I'm sick of people hearing Manning deserves this and is entitled to it. Peyton Manning isn't entitled anything. Save for last week, he has been one of the weaker components of his team come playoff time. If he doesn't win this year, he still has another good 5 years to get back here. If he really is the legend people claim, he will bring the Colts to victory. We'll see on Sunday.

Plus, our logo is cooler:

Exactly, all their wins are down to a small number of big plays and special teams. The rest of the time they really have trouble moving the football and most fo their games were close. Thats why it is put down to luck. The Bears defence isn't amazing, its only good. But it has played a part in containing the damage from the opposing team.

I think the Colts will really excel because the way their defence works is to allow small gains to stop big ones. I don't think the Bears are gonna get that lucky in this game. Also the offence is technically very good so we will see exactly how good the Bears defence really is.

He's already on the older side.

Grossman has plenty more years than Manning to get a ring (as you said, he is a rookie)... but if he doesn't improve soon, I don't see how he'd ever get it.

Its gonna be interesting. Each of the teams that the colts have met in the playoffs have been in the top 10 defences this season. Baltimore being #1. Chicago has had an easier run as far as that goes but they have faced the top 2 teams for offence, the colts being #3. Bearing in mind that comparitivly the Colts pounded Baltimore, Chicago's offence really needs to step up if they want any chance of winning.

As for Payton, he is not only a great quarterback physically (perhaps as good as Favre in his hayday) but also he has the ability to read the defence and call plays. He makes up for Dungy's lack of offensive coaching experience. A lot of the time he carries the team. To say he is the weakest link in any game is totally missing the mark. No quarterback as far as I remember has ever done what he has done mentally. Thats what makes him amazing. He is special and he would be a hall of famer already if he was with a better team. People want to see him win because he will have done it despite the odds, a lot of much lesser quarterbacks have won it simply because they were on a better team.

The poll should also include an "I'm pissed that Prince is the half-time attraction" option. Seriously, Prince? These planners are always 4 to 20 years off on their half-time show pop-singer choices. 'Cept for Paul Mcartney, he put on a great show in '04. Him and that stage. Anyway, I'm praying for a "wardrobe malfunction"-clean performance this year...

Oh well. The Bears really had it together in the first quarter but then they loosened up on their D and Grossman couldn't complete his passes.

Big props to the Colts though. Thanks everyone! See you in this thread next year!

The Colts deserved this. Not because of Peyton Manning or what color their coach is or any other reason. They came to play the game.

I'm not retracting what I said earlier when I said that Manning isn't entitled to this. However, he played like he was and that was the difference maker.

After the opening kickoff return and following turnovers, I believe the Bears got overconfident. They played with almost no emotion on defense. Then, Cedric Benson, a big part of tonight's plan, got injured. This took away the potency of the offense by eliminating the two-headed run attack which has proven very successful in games past.

In the second half, Manning figured out our defense. He dumped the ball off or handed the ball off to lead monster drives downfield. However, the Bears were able to halt them in the red zone to hold the Colts to a handful of consecutive field goals, which kept the game tantalizingly close.

Grossman's wheels fell off with 2 picks and 3 fumbled snaps, which are unacceptable in any game, let alone a Superbowl. Yes, it was raining. Yes, the ball was slippery. But you have the best center in the NFL! In his defense, he was sitting on the bench for an hour straight due to a persistent Colts offense and .

Congratulations to the Colts. They clearly wanted it more than us. They earned the rights to call themselves World Champions.

Tomorrow will be a somber day in the Windy City.

You shouldn't be too hard on rex, the colts defence laid on the pressure and the driving rain played a big part too. Its a tribute to Manning's skill that he made it look like it had little effect. The turnovers really seem to be down to the lack of experience he has at this stage of his career.

Despite the one sidedness it was an entertaining game. The Bears defence did a great job in keeping them in the game for so long.

What always annoys me are those commercials:

One Game . . .
One Dream . . .
One Chance . . .

I mean, it comes around once a year for crying out loud. Every year holds new opportunities.

I do love the cheesy movie trailer voice and the slightly sped up shots with the "Requiem for a Dream" music though. Classic cheesiness in compressed format biggrin

O i'll def put it on Rex. He didnt show up at all. How many turn overs and dropped snaps. Why does he throw the ball up without a care down the field????????? He's an idiot and I hope he does not play next year. Let him watch from sidelines. If he could play, we would have won.

Well hopefully the coaches won't put it all on him because you are kidding yourself if you think that was the only problem. Even when he was passing they wern't getting any yardage after the throw and thats down to the playcalling and ability of the receivers to make space.

Even if he hadn't turned it over they would still be 1 touchdown behind and the Colts passed up a couple of fieldgoals in the 4th quarter simply to not risk anything going wrong when they didn't need them.

Fort Wayne is evenly divided between Bears and Colts fans. It's insane.

The game was amazing. I thought after the the touchdown at the first kickoff we were done but it all worked out in the end. Well, for most it did. I usually try to blame the loss on the defense or offense but this time I just couldn't. The Bears defense was doing great but the offense, specifically Rex Grossman, could not pull it off. I'm so proud to be a Colts fan! biggrin

Rex better stay in Miami for another week or so.
Yeah, Rex will probably be getting calls that he's going to be killed or crazy stuff like that. I mean it's been 5 years since that kid tried to catch a baseball at a cubs game and people are still making threats!

it was the rain I'll tell you...
You mean to tell me that a team that practices in weather lost to a dome team because of the rain? I highly disagree. wink

Any self respecting Cubs fan knows his name is Steve Bartman. He resides in Northbrook, IL. And it has been about 3 years, not 5.

For those who don't know, in the 7th inning of Game 6 of the NLCS, he deflected a ball that left fielder Moises Alou would've caught.



Eventually, we gave up the lead in that game and lost our chance at the World Series. BUT we are going to win it this year, so it'll all work out. biggrin

I want Rex Grossman to be named the Colts' MVP.

With him leading the offense, he scored as many points for the Colts as he did the Bears.

I would have trouble naming more than a couple of QBs that would have won the game for Chicago. Their D was just too weak. Giving up 430 yards makes it tough to win.
