( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

MY GUEST TONIGHT IS AN NFL

QUARTERBACK WITH A NEW X BOX

GAME "PLAYOFF FACE-OFF."

PLEASE WELCOME DREW BREES!

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

WHOOO!

WHOOO!

ALL RIGHT!

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE

THIS IS THE PERFECT WAY-- THIS

IS THE PERFECT WAY TO FINISH OUR

SUPERB OWL COVERAGE.

THIS WEEK.

BECAUSE--

( CHEERS )

YOU YOU'RE A SUPER BOWL

CHAMPION, SUPER BOWL MVP,

EIGHT-TIME PRO BOWLER,

QUARTERBACK FOR THE NEW ORLEANS

SAINTS.

2013 WAS YOUR RECORD 5,000 YARD

PASSING SEASON.

AND LET'S FACE IT-- IT ALL COMES

DOWN TO THE QUARTERBACK.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

RIGHT?

>> I GUESS SO.

>> Stephen: ALL RIGHT, ALL

RIGHT.

YOU-- AS A QUARTERBACK, YOU'VE

BEEN OUT THERE IN-- ON THE BIG

GAME, IF I CAN CALL IT THAT.

>> SURE.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Stephen: WHAT ARE THESE

TWO QUARTERBACKS THINKING RIGHT

NOW?

>> WELL, PEYTON'S BEEN IN THIS

SITUATION A FEW TIMES.

SO I'M SURE HE'S KIND OF GOT IT

DOWN TO A SCIENCE.

HE --

>> Stephen: AT THIS POINT,

IT'S ONLY THURSDAY.

>> RIGHT.

>> Stephen: DO YOU JUST WANT

THE GAME TO BE TOMORROW?

YOU KNOW YOUR GAME STRATEGY AT

THIS POINT.

>> RIGHT, EXACTLY.

IT CAN'T GET HERE FAST ENOUGH AT

THIS POINT.

THERE'S SO MUCH CHATTER AROUND

YOU.

YOU'VE HAD REALLY TWO WEEKS TO

PREPARE FOR IT, NOT JUST ONE

WEEK.

SO YOU'RE CONSTANTLY GOING

THROUGH THE GAME PLAN OVER AND

OVER AGAIN UNTIL FINALLY IT'S

LIKE, "MAN, I'VE WATCHED THIS

PLAY 1,000 TIMES.

I'VE READ THROUGH THIS PLAY

1,000 TIMES.

LET'S JUST GO PLAY THE GAME."

>> Stephen: ARE YOU STARING

IN THE BATHROOM MIRROR GOING,

I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD.

I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD.

IME"" GOING TO DISNEY WORLD.

I'M GOING TO DISNEYLAND, EITHER

ONE.

( BLEEP ) I'LL GO TO EPCOT.

JUST LET ME WIN.

>> DISNEYLAND ALWAYS GETS

NEGLECT GLD IT REALLY DOES.

>> THAT'S A SHAME.

>> Stephen: NOT TO PICK A

WOUND HERE, BUT THE SAINT LOST

TO SEATTLE, OKAY, AND THAT'S WHY

THEY'RE THERE?

WHO ARE YOU PULLING FOR?

ARE YOU PULLING FOR SEATTLE

BECAUSE YOU WANT TO HAVE BEEN

BEATEN BY THE BEST OR ARE YOU

PULLING FOR THE BRONCOS BECAUSE

YOU WANT SEATTLE TO SHARE YOUR

PAIN?

( LAUGHTER )

( APPLAUSE )

OR ARE YOU JUST GOING TO WATCH

GOLF ALL DAY SUNDAY?

>> I'M DEFINITELY GOING TO WATCH

FOOTBALL BECAUSE I'M A FAN OF

THE GAME, AND I LOVE THESE TWO

QUARTERBACKS.

AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, I

WOULD NOT BET AGAINST EITHER OF

THEM.

>> Stephen: REALLY?

>> YEAH.

AND I COULD GIVE YOU ARGUMENTS

FOR BOTH SIDES.

I THINK PEYTON MANNING'S CAREER,

NUMBER ONE, WHAT HE'S

ACCOMPLISHED IS REMARKABLE, WHAT

HE DID THIS YEAR WAS

UNPRECEDENTED.

WHAT HE'S OVERCOME OVER THE LAST

FEW YEARS WITH HIS NECK INJURY

AND KIND OF HIS-- YOU KNOW,

REALLY STARTING FRESH IN DEN DEN

VERIS SOMETHING YOU REALLY HAVE

TO TIP YOUR HAT TO.

I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FOR HIM

AS A PLAYER AND WHAT HE'S

BROUGHT TO THE GAME.

RUSSELL WILSON, I'M NOT SURE

THERE'S A GUY IN THE FIRST TWO

YEARS THAT HAS THE SUCCESS HE

HAS AND HAS BEEN ABLE TO HANDLE

IT THE WAY HE HAS.

HE'S PLA TOUR BEYOND HIS YEARS.

HE'S A TRUE PRO.

THE MORE SUCCESS THAT COMES HIS

WAY THE MORE HUMBLE HE BECOMES.

I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT

APPROACH, AND I THINK THAT BOTH

OF THEM CERTAINLY ARE READY FOR

THIS MOMENT.

>> Stephen: SO WHO'S GOING TO

WIN?

( LAUGHTER )

( APPLAUSE )

COME ON, DREW!

GROW A PAIR.

I HAD JUSTIN TUCK HERE ON

TUESDAY NIGHT, AND HE-- HE LOVES

HITTING PEOPLE FOR A LIVING, ALL

RIGHT.

I LOOKED IT UP.

HE'S NEVER SACKED YOU.

HE'S NEVER SACKED YOU.

>> LET'S KEEP IT THIS WAY.

>> Stephen: HE LIKES TO KIND

OF LIKE WOUNDED FOREST ANIMAL

SOUND QUARTERBACKS MAKE WHEN YOU

HIT THEM.

LIKE THE HUUU SOUND THEY MAKE.

HOW DO YOU AS A QUARTERBACK GET

BACK INTO THE POCKET?

YOU HAVE, LIKE, THREE SECONDS,

YOU CAN SEE THIS MUCH, AND YOU

KNOW THAT THERE ARE FOUR,

300-POUND ANGRY POT ROASTS

COMING AT YOU?

>> RIGHT RIGHT.

>> Stephen: HOW DO YOU STAY

FOCUSED IN THAT TINY COMPRESSED

ZONE?

>> UH, IT'S KIND DIFFICULT.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE TREMENDOUS

TRUST FOR THE GUYS IN FRONT OF

YOU BECAUSE I'VE GOT FIVE BIG

POT ROASTS BLOCKING THEIR FOUR--

FOR THEIR FOUR POT ROASTS.

AND SO YOU KNOW THAT THEY'RE

COMING VERY CLOSE TO YOU.

THEY'RE THERE TO TAKE YOUR HEAD

OFF.

AND YET YOU STILL HAVE TO

MAINTAIN YOUR POISE AND YOU'VE

GOT A JOB TO DO.

YOU HAVE TO DELIVER BALL DOWN

THE FIELD.

THAT'S YOUR JOB.

>> Stephen: I GOT TRAINED ADD

A QUARTERBACK THIS WEEK FOR--

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THEY WERE

TRYING TO TEACH ME WAS

QUARTERBACKS OWN THE ROOM.

HOW DO YOU OWN THE ROOM?

>> YOU HAVE COMMAND.

YOU'RE PREPARED.

YOU'RE READY FOR REQUEST

SITUATION.

>> Stephen: IS THIS IT?

ARE YOU OWNING THE ROOM RIGHT

NOW?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> IT'S-- IT'S A QUIET

CONFIDENCE.

( LAUGHTER )

YEAH.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

YOU'RE OWNING IT.

YOU'RE OWNING IT.

YOU HAD THE WHO DAT NATION.

>> Stephen: THERE'S CROSSOVER

BETWEEN THE WHO DAT NATION AND

THE COLBERT NATION.

HOW MANY HODATS?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

ALL RIGHT.

HOW MANY COLBERT NATIONS?

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

YOU'RE THE FACE OF AN X-BOX GAME

CALLED "PLAYOFF FACE-OFF."

WHAT IS "PLAYOFF FACE-OFF"?

>> IT ALLOWS YOU TO BE MORE

INTERACTIVE THAN YOU EVER HAVE

BEFORE.

IT ALLOWS YOU TO WATCH THE GAME

YOU YOU WANT TO WATCH, TRACK

YOUR FANTASY STATS AND PREDICT

THE GAMES IN THE PLAY-OFF,

INCLUDING THE SUPER BOWL WITH A

CHANCE TO WIN TICKETS TO NEXT

YEAR'S SUPER BOWL.

>> Stephen: HOW HARD CAN YOU

PLAY THIS GAME?

( LAUGHTER ).

>> FOR-- FOR-- YOU KNOW HOW LONG

YOU PRACTICED TO BE A

QUARTERBACK EARLIER?

>> Stephen: YEAH.

>> THAT LONG.

>> REALLY.

>> Stephen: ALMOST 45 MINUTE.

>> ALMOST 45 MINUTES.

>> Stephen: DREW, THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.
