    Colts will get chance to do what Cowboys couldn't

    DALLAS—Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts get the chance next season to do what the Dallas Cowboys failed to do this time. They could become the first team to play a Super Bowl in their own stadium.

    Yahoo! Buzz ShareThis ."It's exciting. I'm sure Dallas had to deal with those questions all year," Manning said in Dallas this week. "We have a great stadium to have the event and I know the people there are excited. Playing there, it'd be very special. ... That will be the motivation, like all teams, to get to Indy."

    After the Green Bay Packers play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday, the next Super Bowl -- the 46th in NFL history -- will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium in heart of the Indianapolis.

    "Last year, I remember kidding the Dallas folks that we should have a home-and-home the next two years," Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said. "That's not going to happen, obviously."

    The Cowboys (6-10) didn't even make the playoffs, getting off to such a bad start that Wade Phillips was fired midway through this season. Indianapolis won 10 games and made its record-tying ninth consecutive playoff appearance, then lost to the New York Jets.

    If the Colts make it 10 playoffs in a row, they will have the opportunity for a hometown Super Bowl.

    "It's certainly possible. Peyton is still at the top of his game. His supporting cast is very, very strong. I'd love to see it," Ballard said. "Some people say, 'Oh, no, you don't want that because then you won't have as many visitors.' I don't believe that. Look at Butler. Them being in the Final Four actually generated more interest."

    The Colts have been to the last two Super Bowls in Miami, winning the 2007 game over the Chicago Bears and then losing to the New Orleans Saints last year.

    The 2013 Super Bowl will be played in the Louisiana Superdome, the home of the Saints.

    "I'd like a rematch," Ballard said.

    They'll also have a chance to make sure everything is setup and ready to go, unlike the Dallas stadium crew that is STILL setting up seats less than 2 hours before kickoff!

    He'll budge when he realizes that there is too much to lose. When his players aren't making any money.

    I think everyone is all talk, no one wants any games to be missed. I'm confident they'll get a deal done soon.

    I agree everyone is all talk (esp the players when there is no money coming in every month) but I disagree with you on how soon a deal will get done.

    I am hoping we have a full NFL season, but I think we see a strike through the first month (preseason) and I would not be surprised to see a good part of the regular season missed as well.

    Worst case scenario I think we have a 10-12 game regular season. Although I hope they get a deal done soon and we don't miss any games.

    But yeah, it's all talk, the players are going to want that money and probably will grow tired of the strike once their wallets turn dry.

    I could easily see a strike thru training camp and the preseason... even if the players are fine with an agreement offered before that...
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    3 months ago I would have said half the season, if not more.

    Now, I am thinking a month or two...max.

    Maybe it is hope more then think....
