Antoine Winfield also f***ed up his foot again in this game as well and would not have played against the Colts.
SO.......The Vikings would have had Asher Allen and Benny Sapp and Karl the scab Paymah lining up against Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie, Pierre Garcon, Dalls Clark and the gang. Translation is Vikings would have lost their record 5th Super Bowl as the son of former Viking Archie Manning would have stuck it to Dad's old team to the tune of about 400 yards and 5 TD's. Sorry, No thanks!

boy, it really didn't look that bad on the replay. ACL looks like Ced will not be back in time for training camp. hopefully he can come back strong, he played at a very high level for the last year and a half.

Great year but I agree that match-up with Colts (due to injuries included) may not have worked. Vikings though were exclusively the best nfc team. Saints..... have to like them to a degree but did not live up to expectations as well as obviously having a deviant and illegal game plan (take Favre out of game). I at first wanted them to win in the superbowl but after reviewing a lot of their cheap shots, hope the colts reinstate their Aints status. Unfortunately I lost a lot of respect for them.

Scoreboard Baby!! Saints 31 - Vikings 28. The better team won on sunday. The more talented team lost. there is a big difference!! Yardage totals are nonsense. The bottom line is the scoreboard. Turnovers are part of the game. If the Saints turned the ball over 5 times and the Vikings would have won, nobody would be crying. Vikings have a great team and more individual talent, but they are not a beter team than the Saints. At least they were not on Jan. 24, 2010 in the Superdome!! And that is all that matters!! Bring on the Colts!! As far as taking Favre out of the game, QB's take hits, that is part of the game. CNRUF don't be such a little girl.

I tried to tell you folks in the beginning but you wouldn't listen. The last play for Favre for the last four years was a....... yup, interception and it always comes at the worst time. But to fair, Favre took this team to the brink, not by himself, but with his leadership he made ALL of the players better. The bitter truth is this, most of us Packer fans truly didn't want the Vikes to win, but did want Favre to succeed because he is still our quarterback, despite being here. But the Vikings let him down. If anything should be remembered it should be that Favre put his reputation on the line, he put his beloved Packer fans behind him to try and get one more shot at the Big Dance, but in the end, it was the fumbles and more fumbles and that stupid 12 man penalty that took Favre back down to earth. I hope he finally retires so his wife can relax. Nice ride for MN fans, but the team let him down not the other way around. Give me on Favre anyday, the guy is a gamer and he refuses to quit even at 40. That is what we will always remember about the best qb to ever suit up. Go Pack.

I watched the game twice and cannot believe the calls that were not made.I don't think it was the ref's,it was the NFL.The NFL is big business and the"fix" was in,anyone who thinks I am wrong should look at the Seahawks/Steelers game.The "Bus" could not retire a looser nor could the coach.It really is a shame,this should be about the better team not the pockets of the NFL or whoever controls them.Brett Farve is a great quarter back and for him to be hit 11 times,one below the knees and only one call for it is amazing.My hope is that the NFL stays out of the outcome of the Super Bowl because if that happens the Colts should win easy.The Saints deserve no respect for what they did.

Guys this game was huge for the New Orlean Saints, the city, and their fans. I will say that you guys played a better game statisticlly but you cannot count out the force turnovers by the saints defense. Yes there were questionable calls on both sides. I know yall dont see it that way but neither did we all the years of bad calls leading to saints defeats. this game was horribly officiated I agree but the vikings did pick brees up and slam him to the turf but it was not called. there was a couple of PI calls that were not called agianst the vikings defenders. I do believe that the refs make up for bad calls with non calls and vice versa. but all things being equal the only reason its the saints in the superbowl and not the vikings is the turnovers...refs do not turn the ball over.

Yall have to understand that you were up against 43 years of futility and frustration. And to the most part vikings did well against the 12th man but when it counted the who dat nation rose up and gave you a 133 decibles of all 43 years of humiliation at one time and that caused your 12th man in the huddle incident.

You can blame your head coach for that all week he put down and insulted saints fans by saying that he was going to make us sit on our hands and other comments which just fired up the fan base more than usuall. the local radio played everyone of childress' comments over and over as locker room material for the saints fans.

I gotta tell you the vikings were my back up team if the saints were out of the playoffs but thanks to childress I HATED I mean HATED the vikings. I rooted for farve to go to you guys in the off season but when you lined up opposite of us the other night you were the enemy.

Good luck and I hope that you guys were treated with respect from the who dat nation and if there were some that acted inappropriatly dont hold it against all of us, and I hope you will be saints fans on superbowl sunday cuz if we would have lost I would have been a vkings fan.

If you have time come to new orleans for mardi gras we would love to host you guys

This week just gets better and better...ViQueen fans...it hurts worse now than Sunday, doesn't it? Now, watch as Favre strings you out like a lost puppy...for months, not weeks. Figure he'll make a decision about oh, say, September 1. If you want to help with the grief process, read Joe Posnanski's piece about Favre and his pattern of agging on SI.com ...priceless.
