Colts' defensive end Dwight Freeney. If Freeney can speed rush in the usual way, Drew Brees might not have time to survey the field and rip up the Colts' secondary. Freeney is underrated at defending the run; if Freeney is not at full strength, he will not be catching Saints' runners from the back side. New Orleans' offense will be able to use all its tools if Freeney is unable to play or is not effective, giving them a better chance to win.
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
