Winning the Superbowl was a Drew Brees.
Getting at the Doritos and the Momma...
... not so easy.

But seriously, I miss the Bud Bowl commercials.

good for the saints and N.O.
I think they really deserved the win after their great season. Plus I love to see the colts loose.

Brett Farve commercial was easily the funniest one

Me too I just love it when the favorite loses. Also EA simulations are real good for predicting.

I was rooting for the Colts the entire time, but honestly this is one of the first Superbowls in several years where I was would've been happy to see either team win. With everything the city of New Orleans has been through with Hurricane Katrina, it was well deserved...Congrats Saints!
LordMarius  +   1913d ago
lol, the game was rigged just so New Orleans could get an economic boost with Mardi Gras and all
Why did they take Manning out of the game? It makes no sense.

Don't....
Be a sore loser. Two great teams came to play, they both played great, The Saints made a few ballsy, yet effective plays that helped them come out on top.

The Colts could come back next year and win it......maybe.......
LordMarius  +   1913d ago
I wasn't even rooting for any of them, so how can I be a sore loser.
I'm just calling it as it is
Jack-Pyro  +   1913d ago
Well....
I gotta tell you man, when you claim the game of being rigged in the winning teams favor, it makes you sound like a butthurt fan.

Sorry bout that.

@ AclayPS3
I felt the exact same way. I was perfectly fine with whoever won - I was just rooting for the Colts more.
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1913d ago
he doesnt sound upset, just cluless
as Payton Manning PLAYED THE ENTIRE game. He threw the interception that cemented the win for the saints. Too many short passes over the middle for the colts.

I dont see how you think that they took manning out unless your like my grandma and asks why manning is out of the game while the saints were on offense.

i didnt get to watch cuz i have no cable
so Payton manning did try the strategy that worked against the bears at superbowl 41 i guess the saints were wise to his short up the middle passes....i dont follow football either but i figured payton manning was going to get the colts the W, but i guess he didnt perform to his best abilitys..it happends.i only follow ufc so...

WTH?
The PS3 version was right too.

Gamer7l  +   1913d ago
Yes...
....but as usual, the 360 had timed exclusivity, so the PS3 is late to the party...again. ;)
KingJFS  +   1913d ago
This is EA's official Super Bowl simulation (for which they used the Xbox 360 version). The article you linked to was for IGN's simulation, which didn't specify what platform they used.

Been Waiting 18 years for this day, and my fathers been waiting 43....The Day The Saints Win the Super Bowl.

GEAUX SAINTS!!!! and to the Colts.....well better luck next time....
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1913d ago
Honestly,good on the Saints.They deserved it,they were the better team.10 points by the Colts in Q1 was really all they could muster....
It wasn't 'rigged',It isn't an economic boon of epic proportion meant to revive a rebuilding city and it wasn't Mannings fault.The Saint's were simply the better team.
Good job Saints and fans,you deserved it and earned it.=)
Bobbykotickrulesz  +   1913d ago
The only game it failed to predict, was the Patriots Vs. Giants game. And noone could have predicted that outcome.

F*ck the Giants. Eli Manning is a horrible QB and they lucked into a superbowl win with a hailmary drive down the field.
cpuchess  +   1913d ago
I wonder what parameters they used in Madden, you can't pick a neutral location like Miami.

Sean Payton
How about Payton having a sterling pair of brass ones, eh? Freakin' gutsy game he called, especially the 2nd half onside kick.
