Indianapolis Colts Coach Jim Caldwell insisted that revenge isn't at the front of anyone's mind as his team prepares for Sunday's rematch of Super Bowl XLIV, which the New Orleans Saints won 31-17 in February 2010.
"There are a lot of guys on this team that weren't here, so obviously every season is a little bit different. That was a little ways back," Caldwell said, understating how much things have changed for the now 0-6 Colts, who are without injured quarterback Peyton Manning. "We have a lot of competitors here. There are a bunch of competitors down there. It's obviously going to be a great game. It's at night, nationally televised.
"I think there are a lot of things we're looking forward to. I don't think anyone's expressing anything about a rematch. There's a lot of water under the bridge. In terms of the challenge they represent, they're a great team. Drew Brees is having a great year throwing the ball. Obviously they have some weapons to get it to. (Jimmy) Graham's doing a great job, (Darren) Sproles is doing a nice job. The rest of their cast are doing a great job. The offensive line and defense give you all kinds of problems and the special teams unit is very good. You have your hands full."
