Super Bowl Dawgs

So we have our Super Bowl set, the last football we’ll see until G-Day in Athens. This matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts should be a good one. Both teams have high powered offenses, so it’ll probably come down to who can create the turnovers and play the best defense.
tim_jennings Maybe you’re like me and have trouble getting as fired up about professional football as you do college. So I thought we’d look at the Super Bowl through our red and black glasses in an effort to generate some interest.
For the Colts, we have Tim Jennings as the lone Dawg. I was a little surprised when I didn’t see Marcus Howard’s name on the roster, but evidently he’s moving to Nashville as part of the Tennessee Titans going into next year. Jennings had 57 tackles this season and three interceptions, giving him 161 and 4 respectively for his career.
For the Saints, we have Jon Stichcomb and Charles Grant. Unfortunately, Grant is currently on the IR with a torn triceps. Stinchcomb however is largely counted on to provide running room for Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush as well as give Brees time in the pocket against some of the league’s fiercest pass rushers. In the Super Bowl he will face two stalwarts in Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis who have 23 sacks on the season between them. jon_stinchcomb
And if that’s not enough to compel your interest, maybe by game time you’ll find yourself confident enough to wager on the winner, or any of the many prop bets this Super game brings. If so, allow me to point you to a site where you can find the best Super Bowl odds and an opportunity to play those odds responsibly. Although there have been many blowouts in the final football game of the season, Super Bowl history shows that the game generally goes well into the fourth quarter before the Lombardi winner is decided.
However you decide to entertain yourself, I hope it’s a good game. At least as good as the cheese dip. Pass the nachos.
