That on-side kick was the play of the game. Put the colts off-balance. Great superbowl game though.
That took boulder sized balls on Sean Payton's part to do a gimmicky onside kick in the Superbowl.

They faked out the cameraman on that one!
He certainly faked out everyone at my party.... "How the hell do you shank the first kickoff in a hal... OH MY GOD, IT'S AN ONSIDE KICK!!!!"

Could be! I'll tell you right now who WON'T be making the trip to Super Bowl XLV.... The Dallas Cowboys. Why? It's very simple. The game will be in Cowboys Stadium, and no hosting team has ever made the Super Bowl. Why start now?

The downside to that logic (from my point of view) is that Peyton and the Colts won't make Super Bowl XLVI....

Re: NFL Football 2009

The only explanation for how badly Tracy Porter picked off Manning was that Porter managed to get his hands on a Mr. Fusion powered DeLorean and go into the future to see how that play would play out. Wow--he absolutely smoked the Colts.

Congrats to New Orleans. I'm glad we got to see two good teams go at it and play good football with minimal interference from the refs. I kept thinking how GOOD this football game was considering the utter crap that substitutes for NFL football here in Chicago.

On an aside, the commercials seemed really subpar this year, with far too many pasty out-of-shape men lacking pants to appeal to anybody. IMO, the only good ones were Betty White/Abe Vigoda Snickers and Punxatawney Polamalu (not that I could identify what product the latter one was an advertisement for).

It's a play the Colts love to run. Why they chose to run it at that particular moment, I'll never know. What I do know is that Porter did a damn fine job of scouting them, watching films of their games from earlier in the year. It paid off BIG TIME.

Yup, to quote Porter himself:

“It was great film study,’’ Porter said. “We knew that on third and short they stack, and they like the outside release for the slant. It was great film study by me, a great jump and a great play.’’

Re: NFL Football 2009

In coach Payton's post-game press conference, he said he informed the officials about the onside kick ahead of time so they would know to look for it.

This is a coach with brass balls. Fuck, what's it like to root for a team with a coach like that?

And yet I continue to root for ... for ... oh, God.

There is a team in the NFL with an offense run by Mike Martz, who will be calling plays for a gun-slinging, rollercoaster diabetic quarterback sitting behind an offensive line composed entirely of discount Saran wrap.

There is a team in the NFL with a defense run by Rod Marinelli, who spearheaded the Detroit Lions into prosperity with a mind-blowing 0-16 record, and who will be calling plays for an over-the-hill defense consisting of oft-injured underachievers in a system rendered obsolete three years ago when offenses began to introduce an amazing, revolutionary new development in offensive history called the "five-yard slant."

There is a team in the NFL run by Lovie Smith, who once wasted two timeouts with time ticking down on one incorrect challenge on a play that obviously was not going to go his way. Lovie Smith, who took a superstar return man who was so feared by every special teams in the league that no one would kick to him and made him into a laughable number-one wide receiver who could no longer return a kickoff or punt to save his life.

There is a team in the NFL whose general manager is Jerry Angelo, whose first rounds have so far netted wide receiver David Terrell (out of football), tackle Marc Colombo (starts on the Cowboys), defensive end Michael Haynes (out of football), quarterback Rex Grossman (local hero, backup on Texans, threw an interception the first play he came in after Schaub went down), defensive tackle Tommie Harris (starts, constant underachiever since 2006), running back Cedric Benson (ran Thomas Jones out of town for him, he was awful, then lit it up for the Bengals this year), tight end Greg Olsen (everyone thinks he's the tits, but I'll wait until he proves he can catch consistently to make a judgment), and offensive tackle Chris Williams (spent the season on the wrong side of the line, got his ass consistently beat, his back is made of Jell-O). Seeing his ineffectiveness, he promptly traded two first rounders for Jay Cutler, and a bonus second rounder for Gaines Adams, who is now dead as a doornail.

This team is the Chicago Bears. Our history is rich with tales of amazing defenses, Walter Payton, Mike Ditka, Soldier Field, and consistently finding news ways to lose in hilarious fashion:



In case that wasn't enough for you, here is a list of quarterbacks that have started for the Chicago Bears since Jim McMahon's final season as a Bear in 1988:

Mike Tomczak
Jim Harbaugh
Peter Tom Willis
Will Furrer
Erik Kramer
Steve Walsh
Dave Krieg
Rick Mirer (whom we traded a 1st to the Seahawks to acquire, he couldn't throw to the left)
Steve Stenstrom
Moses Moreno
Shane Matthews
Cade McNown (first round quarterback. Got in trouble for misuse of a handicapped parking permit. Bought expensive cars for Playboy bunnies. Sucked. A lot.)
Jim Miller
Chris Chandler
Henry Burris
Kordell Stewart
Jonathan Quinn
Craig Krenzel
Chad Hutchinson
Rex Grossman (first round pick. Pictured above. "Fuck it, I'm going deep.")
Brian Griese ("Fuck it, I'm going short.")
Kyle Orton ("Fuck it, I'm getting killed.")
Jay Cutler ("Fuck it, I need insulin.")

I need help.

I was listening/reading more about that yesterday. Seems as if during film study, they caught two Indy coverage guys on that side of the field who always 'cheated' on kickoffs. They'd start running into coverage before the ball was kicked figuring an onside would not occur, and giving them more time to get into a wedge downfield.

Sean Payton said it wasn't a matter of 'if' as much as 'when' they'd try it.
