And so it goes

Well, I was batting .500 this week.

The Colts looked really good yesterday.  Manning really kept his head in the game after they fell behind early in the game and pulled it out and ran with it in the 2nd half.

The Vikings on the other hand, well, they lost that game more than the Saints won it.  It was very close, but it didn't have to be.  Peterson spent more time looking for the ball after he'd dropped it than he did running with it.  And Favre got pounded.  New Orleans knew they had to get to the Minnesota quarterback, and they succeeded. 

Early in the season, I questioned whether Favre would be able to go the distance, and he surprised me.  He showed a lot of talent and strength throughout the season.  I'm sad to see that what will probably be his last year ended on a heartbreaker like that.

As for the Superbowl, I'm going to go with Indianapolis.  The Colts did well yesterday against a defense that did their best to go after Manning, and their offense is as good as it's ever been.  As far as I can remember, this is the first time the two best teams in the NFL will meet in the Superbowl, as opposed to a good team kicking the snot out of a longshot that got lucky for a few games.
