    I really don't understand the appeal of the Colts and Saints.

    All the Manning blowhard sh!t. Daddy played for the Saints, Paytey grew up as a Saints fan.

    Manning ballwashing, pure and simple.

    Wasn't Archie Manning pretty irrelevant throughout his career?

    That's what I thought, but apparently he is the Prince Charles of the NFL.

    :confused: x 1000

    I've always said he looks like Prince Charles.:rofl:

    I expected the Saints and Colts.

    It has nothing to do with ballwashing.

    It about maximizing rating$.

    The Saints could struggle with a letdown season and this game wont be as marketable in October/November/December as it is now. Being the kickoff game, and the fact that Indy and NO are small market teams that are fun to watch and have national appeal, it makes the most sense to have these two teams play on Kickoff Thursday.

    Besides, Pats/Colts is always marketable regardless of the month.

    It all about making money.

    I, for one, will gag if they show home videos of widdle Peyton in a Saints jersey.. and they will unfortunately.

    If that's the game then I hope for a shootout.

    I hate the Colts more than any other team in professional/college sports. I hate the Colts more than any Baltimorian.

    That said, to the victor go the spoils.

    IMO, it is about ballwashing. What could be worse for the coronation of everything Manning, then on the same openning night, to hang their banner and have their hats handed to them by a Pat's team our for vengance.

    The locals like to say "Geaux Saints" ;)

    and yes this isn't surprising at all, in fact I called it a few weeks ago I'm just too lazy to dig up my post.

    These games haven't been confirmed yet. Peter King dropped these nuggets in his weekly SI.com column.

    As aforementioned, Saints-Colts makes a lot of sense. You have the Manning love-in, Reggie Bush, and the Saints' high-flying offense. But the major issue here is you have to show teams like the Saints early in the season because you don't know if they're going to be a one year wonder or not. Nobody wants to see the Colts hosting the 3-7 Saints in November.

    Pats-Colts was out of the question from the get-go.

    Good QB playing on bad teams.

    If the Sunday game is Cowboys at Giants then our season opening game is really narrowed down. There will be a concert sat the 8th at gillette probably taking that option away. We play the giants, colts and boys on the road already. The jets wouldn't host because the giants are home. This leaves pats at balt, cincy, buff or miami as the opener.

    I think we start on the road at Baltimore and are CBS's lead game for the day. At 4:00 they usually show the Tennis U.S. Open on opening week so we'll be playing at 1:00 EST if it happens.

    You want vengence?

    Beat Indy in the playoffs AND win SB 42! The Pats can clinch Team of the Decade with a win in the next SB. That's vengence enough for me. :cool:
