Sorry, New Orleans

I hope we can still be friends. We'll still see each other occasionally next season, and I'll even cheer for you as long as you aren't playing the Colts.

Colts win by experience

This won't surprise anyone: the difference in this game should be Peyton Manning.

Fans are the real winners

This unofficial national holiday is better than all the other official ones because you spend the game with people you want to be with rather than people you have to be with.

Stats favor Saints

Whatifsports.com's super-computers simulated Super Bowl XLIV 10,001 times and predicted the New Orleans Saints will pull the upset 62% of the time.

The best reason to pick the Indianapolis Colts resides under center.

Blue stampede

The Saints are an elite team, but they are running up against a team built to stop the style their offense thrives on,

Decisions Decisions

While most will never face Freeney's specific choice, we make similar decisions every day.

If he can play, play

Some would think that this game is worth playing in at all costs. Hoisting that Lombardi trophy seems to work miracles as a pain reliever.

Safety first

Players caught up in the moment may not have the clearest perspective on their long-term futures

Talk to the ankle

Playing for the moment -- a Super Bowl moment -- may be well worth it in the eyes of the players and fans but, in the long run, it's more about quality of life later.

No guts no glory

Just ask Dan Marino or that other Manning (Archie that is) if they would give up individual accolades (such as a long and prosperous career) for a ring.

To play or not to play?

Some players never get to play in a Super Bowl, but is it worth risking your future over? Weigh in...

Play Freeley

If this was a regular season game, maybe Freeney would sit out. It's the Super Bowl. He won't.

Choose free speech

While I admire Tebow's strength and support his freedom of speech, I would still prefer to watch football without controversial ads.

Opinion matters

Jocks who use their high profile to push a particular religious or social cause should accept any heat that comes with that.

Choice = Priority

Wouldn't that $2.6 million be far better spent going to a Haitian relief fund to feed, clothe and care for all those millions of suffering victims?

Don't hate on Tebow

Before the armies of feminism try to gag me and strap electrodes to my forehead: Tim Tebow is one of the better things to happen to young women in some time.

Keep belief off the field

Much like church and State, I'm happy to keep my preaching and my football as far apart as possible.

It's Tebow's choice

What Tim Tebow does or does not sponsor or associate himself with off the field, makes no difference to me.

By Doug Farrar | February 1, 2010; 11:29 AM ET | Comments (5)

Change the channel

What he does off the field is his business, there's plenty he needs to worry about on it.

On the field vs. off the field

Should his Super Bowl ad change your opinion of him?

Tebow's pro-life Super Bowl ad

Should CBS pull the Focus on the Family/Tim Tebow pro-life ad from its Super Bowl lineup?

Free speech first

Nonetheless, the idea of a 22-year-old college senior stating his view on the most watched television show of the year bothers me.
