The Top 10 Jerseys That Will Be Worn in Super Bowl XLIV
Every year the Super Bowl, and those in it, are analyzed from every angle possible. This is a look at the top 10 jerseys that will be worn in the Super Bowl in terms of jersey sales (sorry, Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders).

10. Austin Collie
The rookie out of Brigham Young has been an unexpected surprise for the Colts this season, hauling in nearly 700 receiving yards and scoring seven touchdowns. In a year that seemed questionable with the departure of future Hall of Fame receiver Marvin Harrison, Collie quickly eased Colts fans' minds.
9. Jeremy Shockey
Once the center of New York newspapers, Shockey actually blends into the Saints' offense and has finally shown that his work ethic is not a liability. Although he missed game time due to injury this season, Saints' fans are confident to have Shockey at the tight end position.
8. Jeff Saturday
One of the most well-known centers in all of football, Saturday has been a part of the line that protects Peyton Manning for 10 years. In a position that often gets overlooked, the fans of Indianapolis let Saturday know they appreciate him with their No. 63 jerseys in the stands on Sundays.
7. Joseph Addai
The fourth-year running back out of LSU has been solid in the backfield throughout his career. Addai gets overlooked at times because of Manning and the passing-oriented Colts' offense, but defenses still need to prepare for the tough-nosed running back.
Though he's only 26, it's Addai's second trip to the Super Bowl. Expect him to help out of the backfield in what will be one of the highest-scoring Super Bowls in years.
6. Marques Colston
Drew Brees has a plethora of weapons in his arsenal, but he seemed to consistently find Colston in the end zone this season. The former Hofstra star led the team with nine touchdowns this season.
5. Reggie Bush
The 2005 Heisman Trophy winner has been a bit underwhelming since coming to New Orleans, but he has really turned it on in the 2010 playoffs. Though he hasn't become the star most thought he would, he is still a fan-favorite in New Orleans.
4. Reggie Wayne
Wayne caught 100 passes for over 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. Once a star at the University of Miami, Wayne has started every game since 2003 and has 59 touchdowns during that time. Look for Manning to be throwing Wayne's way all day on Sunday.
3. Dallas Clark
Clark has been Manning's go-to guy for the last couple years, and 2009 was no different, as he caught over 100 passes during the season. With four years left on his contract, there's no reason for Clark's production to slow, a terrifying fact for all AFC clubs to realize.
2. Drew Brees
Another season, another 4,000 passing yards. Brees has thrown for over 4,000 yards in four-straight seasons and matched a career-high with 34 touchdown passes. He had a passer rating of over 109 and a completion percentage of over 70 percent. Without a doubt, Brees will make this Super Bowl an offensive slug-fest.
1. Peyton Manning
Does anyone remember when America thought Peyton would never win a Super Bowl? Those thoughts are long gone as Peyton is in his second Super Bowl in four years. Manning, a lock for enshrinement in Canton, Ohio, one day, has already had a dream career, and still has plenty of time to add to his legacy.
