UPDATE: If you had Warren Sapp in your arrest pool, you win! Booking Info here.
The Ex-Hurricane and Tampa Bay Buc (and Oakland Raider) was arrested Saturday night in a domestic dispute. Who's going to use his SB Ticket? Do they get to watch the whole game at TGK or is it lights out before it ends?
SUPER BOWL SUNDAY IN MIAMI. Doesn't get any better than this. While you're enjoying "chamber of commerce weather" we managed to squeak out of DC and get out here to Nevada.
Who will win the Super Bowl? Forget about points for a minute. Defense and running wins championships. Pure and simple. That means tonight at Joe Robbie-Pro Player-Dolphins- Jimmy Buffet Beer- Sun Life Stadium (did we miss any? ) at about 9:35 pm., the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS will be hosting the seven pound sterling silver Vince Lombardi Trophy. (Football spouses click here for a brief bio of coach Lombardi).
Because the Saints will win, you do not need the points. The money line on the Saints is anywhere from +160 to +180, so lets call it +175 which means you get 175 Brees for every po boy bet.
Point line: If you can get 57 consider going over, although we like the under. Most point lines appear to be 60-62. Could the game be 35-31? Sure. But we think 28-17 Saints is a more likely score so put as down as under.
How will the Saints beat the Mannings? Pressure. Then no pressure. Then pressure again. Manning doesn't like being hit. So just like they did last week, the Saints will put some helmets on Manning early and often. And then in a 3rd and 14 when Peyton is expecting a blitz again, the Saints will send 2 or 3 and drop 8-9 into coverage and get a pick. Zone blitzes mixed with a dime defense is the way to go. Man on Reggie Wayne and dare the Mannings to run the ball. That's the way you beat this team.
