I also realized for the first time (while watching a video on .com) that Travis Jones, our D-Line coach, was the D-line coach for the Saints when they beat Peyton's Colts in the Super Bowl. That is some great experience to have on our side as well. He knows the combinations of factors needed to get to Peyton in a game like this. While the teams are different on both sides, Peyton is the same person and coaching to get to him would be similar.
Obviously that won't win the game by itself, but it has to help.
