NFL Football / Super Bowl XLI

Colts, Bears will rely on defense, QB play

by Andrew Poloni
ak8880@wayne.edu

All eyes will turn toward Miami this weekend as the city hosts the NFL’s Super Bowl XLI. The game will feature the Chicago Bears against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Bears arrived in Miami on Monday - the Colts on Tuesday - and will spend this week preparing for the game and answering questions from the media.

Both teams will be looking for big games Sunday from their defenses as they try to slow down the opposing offense.

The Bears are hoping to reinvent themselves defensively and return to their dominating style of play seen earlier this season.

The Bears’ defense seemed to have softened up as the end of the regular season approached and still looked beatable throughout the postseason.

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher and the rest of the defensive unit will certainly have their hands full with Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and the rest of the high powered Indy offense.

The Colts defense was criticized all season long and ranked last in a number of defensive stats. But it has looked recharged and at times overpowering since the start of the playoffs.

The return of safety Bob Sanders has given the Colts defense a much needed boost.

Both quarterbacks, Manning and the Bears’ Rex Grossman, will be using this game to answer questions and doubts aimed at each of them.

Manning may one day go down as the best quarterback of all time, but the stigma of not being able to win the big game looms over his head.

Grossman has faced heat all season, and it was often doubted by fans and the media if he should even be the Bears’ starter.

Both Manning and Grossman can use this game to silence the critics.

Manning can get the ring nearly everyone admits he deserves and put the icing on a great career.
Grossman is hoping for a good game to provide him some vindication. He wants to prove that he is a quarterback that belongs in the Super Bowl.

In the end, the game may come down to the play of either quarterback. It is likely that one of them will be named most valuable player breaking the two-year streak of wide receivers winning the award.

The Colts enter Sunday as a seven point favorite, a spread that has remained constant since the end of the conference championship games nearly two weeks ago.

The game airs Sunday at 6:25 p.m. on CBS.
