Saints Nation: Tony Dungy Is My New Worst Enemy

Check out what Tony Dungy (pictured) had to say about the SuperBowl HERE. Apparently he thinks the game will be a blow out, and that the Saints have no chance. My favorite quotes:

"I think they're going to be so far ahead that people are going to say, 'Oh, ho-hum'"

"I don't think it's going to be close."

"Minnesota is playing in New Orleans, they turn the ball over five times, have two or three stupid penalties and still lose in overtime, I don't see how it's going to be close. The Colts aren't going to turn it over seven times."

First off - how is Tony Dungy's opinion of any credibility whatsoever? Could you possibly find any brain on this earth that lacks more objectivity? Should we interview Thomas Morstead's mom and post an ESPN article getting her opinion on how the SuperBowl will turn out? Seriously, this article is ridiculous and ESPN should be ashamed of posting it. That's like asking Bobby Hebert what's better between a shrimp po-boy and an Idaho potato.

Furthermore, since when can you use one game as a sample size to fuel your arguments? Ok fine Tony, I can play this game too. The Colts beat the Patriots 35-34, and they should have lost the game. It took a miraculous ending and a boneheaded 4th down coaching decision by Bill Belichick to give the Colts the victory. Weird, because the Saints played that same Pats team and beat them 38-17. That's right, they scored more against them than the Colts did and they gave up less points. Based on that, I just don't see how it can be close. I think, personally, the Saints will be so far ahead that people will say "ho-hum". Thanks, Tony, for your opinion that's worth about exactly nothing.

In case you didn't get enough of a laugh out of Tony Dungy's comments, then I suggest you go here. You can read about how Michael Vick thinks he's "still a top 10 NFL QB". Let's not forget, coincidentally, that Vick's adviser happens to be Tony Dungy. I think his credibility just took another hit.
