In all of my years watching the Super Bowl game itself. I had never seen a more gutsier call than what Sean Payton called after the Saints scored
their second field goal. To most, an onside kick that early would have certainly meant doom to others. What made it an even better call was that
Naw'lins recovered the kick!!! That decision has to be one of the greatest decisions by a head coach in Super Bowl history.
After that and the halftime show....
New Orleans, literally, turned up the heat on Manning and the Colts. They were forcing Peyton to make bad or hurried throws. Plus, it doesn't hurt
having the Super Bowl MVP, Drew Brees, go 32 - 39, with 288 yards, and two touchdowns along to go with zero interceptions. In my honest opinion,
Indianapolis was just out smarted and out played by the Saints in the second half of the game.
Also, for many years now, I have always believe that you should root for the underdog. No matter who they are facing and in what sport.
