Super Bowl Preview

Super Bowl Preview by John Vogel

Colts offense:

This Super Bowl coming “Super Bowl XLI” (41), QB Peyton Manning has a perfect passing attack.  WR Marvin Harison has great receiving arms and  rookie Joseph Addie has a great rushing game.  At halftime against New England, losing 21-6, Peyton’s passing attack helped them win 38-34.  Peyton was great in the game, showing off his talent.  Peyton is the first in the Manning family to go to the Super Bowl.

Bears Offense:

That’s right.  QB Rex Grossman has lots of talent.  WR Mushan Mummanad has a lot of receiving talent.  Thomas Jones has a lot of rushing yards and gets long gains.

Bears Defense:

The Bears know who they’re coming to, The Colts.  The Bear’s defense against New Orleans  stopped Drew Brees passing attacks by intercepting 3 passes, and showing they were there to play.  Starring Nathan Vasher, start CB, has lots of things to show.  Ricky Manning, Jr. has a CB arm.  Brian Urchler has over 700 tackles, including 5 seasons with over 100 tackles.

Colts Defense:

The Colts can show off now.   LB Cato June gets a lot of the showoffs.  In 2005, he had 5 interceptions, and in 2006, 3 interceptions.  Gary Bracket has lots of the attention too.  As a LB in the last 2 years, he’s had 6 interceptions.  Nick Harper, the great CB, has had 6 interceptions in the past 2 years.

The Kickers:

Colts’ kicker Adam Vantary was with the Patriots in their Super Bowl wins.  Bears’ kicker Robbie Gold can’t kick 100 points in a season.

When & Where:

At Dolphins Stadium, Miami, Florida

Starts at 4:30 pm Eastern time.  Kickoff at 6:00 pm Eastern time.


Colts 32

Bears 29

    I remember the Colts as the big rival of the Washington Redskins when they were the Baltimore Colts, but I don’t hold a grudge…I predict that the Colts will win, just because I can’t think of anything good about Chicago or bears. Score 21-14 Colts win! We’ll know for sure after the game!

  11. JOHN VOGEL Says:

    You think so !
    Well I do!

    I sure hope you’re right! The Colts were always Uncle Joe in Colorado’s favorite team when we were little so I’ve always wanted them to win… but then again, the Bears beat the Saints after they beat the Eagles so you have to like them…
    Either way, you sure know your football! Way to go, John!
    Love, Aunt Mary Lou

    I hope the Bears win on Sunday. Otherwise I am going to have a VERY disappointed husband not to mention his six brothers, our son, nephews and brother-in-laws. You did a great job on your predictions. You just can’t discount Chicago sports teams and the fire the fans give them…plus my Mom and all her prayers during the game. 🙂

    Manning is my favorite QB in the NFL, but this Sunday I have to be all about the Bears.

    Are you going to do a recap post on Monday?

    Hi John!

    I have passed on this excellently researched info to a friend of mine who… gambles…. small bets, of course. He has been undecided on how to place his bet for the Superbowl, and hopefully, your estimation will give him some direction. I, of course, don’t have much interest in the game, and probably will not watch it, so I look forward to a good summary on Monday…!

  19. Ann Says:

    Hi John,

    I predict the Colts will pull it out in a close one! I’m really looking forward more to the commercials than the game.
    Enjoy the game!

    Go Navy!!!

  20. Fr. John Vogel Says:

    Hi John,

    Very good reasoning! I’m with your dad, I think the Bears will surprise people. I think it will be a close game, maybe obly one touchdown margin. I liked the person who said they were rooting for the refs, talk about cheering on the underdogs!
