Great Super Bowl Matchup
The Colts and Saints both played real well this past weekend to make it to the Super Bowl. I am definitely excited for the matchup: Drew Brees and Peyton Manning are two of the top quarterbacks of our generation. I donít know for sure who will win, but I would think the Colts have the better chance of winning because they have been there already. Peyton Manning and all the veterans on the team know how to focus during the big game. Many of the guys who were on the team when they won a few years ago are still playing on this team. I definitely think it will be a great matchup to watch.
The end of the Saints/Vikings game this Sunday was awesome. The Vikings had a few opportunities to seal the win, but turnovers and big penalties killed them. Adrian Peterson ran strong but had costly fumbles. Brett Favre played a solid game, but threw a key pick at the end to keep the Saints alive. I definitely believe the Vikings could have won the game if they played smart. The Saints played very well and earned the victory against a tough opponent. The home-field advantage was definitely a major factor for the Saints to win. I am looking forward to watching their offense against the Colts.
Brett Favre is getting a lot of media attention, as always, but I donít know if he will retire or come back next year. I donít think he even knows what he wants to do at this point. He has a true passion for the game and should give it some time before he makes his decision.
The Pro Bowl is this Sunday night in Miami and I will tune in to watch an entertaining game. I have been doing a lot of work around the house in my down time. It is nice to spend quality time with family and friends. I hope to be back with the Packers for next season. For now, though, I am enjoying the time off to recover and relax.
