Back in 2001, I remember watching an NFL-related show when a comedian said “The country is in a very patriotic state right now, the NE Patriots needs to go ahead and win the Super Bowl.” As a New England sports fan, I was happy to hear that. The New England Patriots shocked the football stars by defeating the St Louis Rams 20-17 that same year. Why am I reminding you of this?
I can never compare being a New England sports fan with being supportive of a rival team, but this one is different. Similar to Jamie Foxx’s “Blame it,” I will blame it on Natural Disaster when I tell you that the Colts have what it takes to be crowned as the 44th NFL Champion. The New Orleans Saints are a great team from the NFC. They got an improved defense that intercepted Bret Favre when it counted the most during the NFC Championship game; throughout most of the season, they did not disappoint with their offense averaging more than 31 points a game (compared to 26 by the Colts).
Meanwhile, the Colts enjoy a slight advantage on defense allowing about 19 points per game to the Saints’ 21. These stats will not tell you how the
game will end on February 7th, but one thing will. This season, the Colts have not lost a game where they put forth the effort necessary to win. They will rally behind one of their own, Pierre Garçon, whose family is suffering from the effects of a 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010.
The Patriots delivered when America needed the most, the Colts and Pierre Garçon need to deliver to continue to bring more awareness to those devastated by the earthquake. This is one of the many reasons why the Indianapolis Colts will win.
