Patriots – Rosevelt Colvin (ROLB) and Ty Warren (DE) have been out for blood all season, packing in the hits from the outside.
Colts – Dwight Freeney (DE) forces teams to front two guys (or more) on him on every snap. The line naturally shifts right, thinning out Robert Mathis‘s side.
Patriots – Tom Brady is going to throw because their running game is too pansy with Maroney as the lead rusher. Again, Brady is going to throw.
Colts – Harrison is not at his best yet, but he’s going to cause some problems today…I can feel it.
Patriots – Asante Samuel is looking to pick off Peyton again and again today, only racking up his total of Manning-INTs for his career.
Colts – Peyton Manning is going to have a career game against this explosive yet predictable defense. Peyton’s had years to study this defense, and New England did little in the offseason to spice it up. I see big things for Peyton today!
Patriots – Addai vs. Maroney…PLEASE!!! Laurence Maroney is weak and Joseph Addai has been having a close-to-stellar year for a sophomore. If Addai breaks the line, he’s gone today, especially on the play actions.
Colts – Bob Sanders!!! ‘Nuff said…Oh, wait…Could he be the player to Go Golooley! on Brady’s ass???
Here’s the breakdown (as I see it):
Peyton Manning/Tom Brady PUSH (I really can’t decide b/c they’re both masters of deconstructing a defense.)
Joseph Addai/Laurence Maroney Addai (hands down)
Kenton Keith/Kevin Faulk Keith
Dallas Clark/Ben Watson Clark (hands down)
Marvin Harrison/Randy Moss Moss (hey, Marvin’s knee isn’t 100% yet)
Reggie Wayne/Donte Stallworth Wayne, Wayne, Wayne…
Anthony Gonzalez/Wes Welker Welker (he’s impressive, I’m sorry)
Marvin Harrison/Asante Samuel PUSH (even injured, Harrison only drops to even in talent with Samuel)
Reggie Wayne/Ellis Hobbs Wayne (surprise, surprise)
Dwight Freeney/Logan Mankins Freeney (hell, even throw Matt Light in there! I don’t care!)
Tom Brady/Colts Secondary ??? (I’m going red here b/c so far this season, Brady’s on it so he’s got the edge, but the Colts Secondary is fantastic either way.)
Peyton Manning/Pats Secondary Manning (and I’m not just being biased here)
Laurence Maroney/Colts LBs Tyjuan Hagler, Gary Brackett, Freddy Keiaho are going to have a field day today with this clown!
GET READY, BOYS AND GIRLS!!! IT’S TIME FOR SUPER BOWL 41 1/2!!!
