Steelers were my preseason pick, so I think they will win it all.

I am very surprised by the Cards and their ability to run the ball and play good defense. However, I think the Steelers defense will be too much for them in the end.

I've picked against the Cardinals in every game they've played thus far, and look where that's got them. I want my Super Bowl ring if they're able to beat the Steelers. Steelers over Cardinals.

I'm hoping it will be a good game, but I've seen plenty of Super Bowls turn into snoozers.

This should be one hell of a game, and I think that it is going to go to the Cards. I can't see the Steelers containing Larry Fitzgerald to no TD passes, and they wore down a fairly decent run defense in Philly, and managed to control both clock and ball well. With odds of 21/10 being touted around for Arizona to win their first ring, I'm taking that, cheering on the 'underdog', and hoping that it is going to be a good even matchup, which I fully expect it to be.

Mixed feelings on this Super Bowl.

On the one hand, I would love to see the Cardinals win for years of being the butts of jokes. A nod to the have-nots. Oh yeah, and I hate Pittsburgh.

On the other hand, I want the Steelers to win because:
a) They would have scoreboard over the 'Gurls when it comes to Super Bowls
b) Lesson to Titan players for being disrespectful punks.
last, c) AFC

Honestly, the only reason I want the Steelers to win is so there's no danger of the Cowpatties laying claim to the first to win 6 super bowls. Other than that, I don't care. I just hope for a good game.

I can't tell you how happy I am not to have to worry about the titans winning one.

This is an intriguing Super Bowl for me with the many plot lines that interest me:
- Whisenhut's relationship to the Steelers
- Cowher comes back to the forefront as the definitive analyst on each team
- Dennis Green's shine regains some luster
- Larry Fitzgerald is introduced to the country and shows he is the most complete and exciting WR in the game
- Edge James is back
- LeBeau will cement his name as one of the greatest defensive minds ever
- Tomlin may become youngest Super Bowl winning coach
- The Cards being so inept in the past
- Kurt Warner re-emerging in the Super Bowl and potentially claiming a certain Hall of Fame induction.

If the Cards win is time for Warner to retire and go out on top?

If the Cards win is time for Warner to retire and go out on top?

I'm not sure on this one...he hasn't really looked past it in what I've seen from this season, he seems to have the faith and relationship with the HC, also why wait until your team starts performing well for once, and then pack it in? Perhaps a lesser factor is his outside of football work...he (and his wife) bases a lot of his charity on his NFL QB status, so perhaps he would feel he needs football to keep allowing him to be so effective in raising money for the needy and helping others.

That said, I don't think that Kurt is every going to just bow out and retire to a ranch...he'll always be doing stuff, its just a question of whether he does it on national TV every season.

I'm sure there'll be plenty of time for this question after he knocks off the Steelers though ;)

Not just about going out on to top he is also close to 40 already.

Even if he played next year, made the Superbowl, he'd still be more than 100 days under 39. He's not a dinosaur yet, and I don't think the Favre situation really applies...he hasn't been umming and arring about retiring, making a song and dance of it, isn't holding back a young QB who hasn't had the chance to make himself the starter.

He plays on, he's a pocket passer, under a decent O-line, and he's taken his team to the Superbowl for the first time...he's staying on.

Steelers v. Ravens. Heinz Ward gets his knee messed up by a couple of DB's and is taken out of the game. The Steeler response? Steeler Receivers TAKE OUT THREE Raven defensive backs. Everyone in black was hitting in that game. The Steeler's PUNTER laid a hard shot on a guy trying to run one past him in that game.
The Steelers are going to enter that game looking at the Cardinals as an obstacle between them and :trophy: x6 and the guys from Phoenix will be on the receiving end of one of the most heinous, yet spectacular @$$ whippings in the recorded history of homo sapiens as a genus. There is NO WAY I'm missing that game!

Like Bob Marley said "Every day the bucket goes to the well, but one day the bottom will drop out." In other words, one day you're going to be out of luck and for the Cardinals that luck will run out on Super Sunday. The two games in which the Cardinals "Shook up the world" were in short order:

a. a game against a team which believed it's own hype and assumed they'd won before a single down had been played.

b. a game in which the refs gave them phantom "pass interference" calls which BOTH spotted the ball on the one yard line effectively spotting them two touchdowns.

Being the best team in the NFC where a 9-7 record gets you a playoff spot is equivalent of being the prettiest girl in town of 100 people. When you make it to the big city you realize you're not as hot as you thought you were. The Steelers play a much more focused game than the Cardinals. Every one on that team likes to deliver vicious hits including the punter and the QB. Arizona has a couple of chances at winning:

a. The Steelers get as cocky as the Patriots were last year and give it away.

b. A sniper shows up and aims for the guys in black helmets.

c. Everyone on the Steeler roster come down with the flu and their cheerleaders have to play the Cardinals. Unless the referees have been bought off, the Axiom of "Defense wins Championships" will be proven yet again as the Steelers go home with :trophy:X6

The Cards have had a great run. Should give both our teams hope for the future.

After seeing how the Eagles had success in the second half against the Cards by playing a more aggressive defense, I expect the stool samples to come out with massive pressure from the start. It would not surprize me one bit to see Warner rattled and/or injured in this game.

This could be an all-time blowout. I hope not because I hate the stoolers with a passion. Hope the commercials are good!

Because Bidwell is Bud Adams Lite and in a show of solidarity with the fans of St. Louis, I hope he NEVER sees a title.

Side note, there must be a lot of mixed emotions in St Louis right now about Kurt Warner leading their old team to the SB. I don't know how I'd feel if a similar situation happened with Houston and Possum Holler.

Cardinals to wear home jerseys in Super Bowl

PITTSBURGH (AP)—The Pittsburgh Steelers will wear their white road uniforms against Arizona in the Super Bowl, just as they did when they defeated Seattle for the NFL title three years ago in Detroit.

The Cardinals, as the home team, chose to wear their red home jerseys in the Feb. 1 game in Tampa.

In the February 2006 Super Bowl, the Steelers had the option of wearing their black home jerseys, but elected to wear white after playing and winning three road playoff games in as many weeks.

This will be only the third time in their seven Super Bowls the Steelers will wear white. They also wore white while defeating Minnesota in the Super Bowl during the 1974 season.

There were alot of Cowboys, Steleers, packers, and Bears fans, but they were hardly any Cardinals fans. As a matter of fact, the Cardinals won a game on a last second field goal and hardly anyone noticed. I wonder how many of these people are now "die hard" Cardinals fans.

Here's some fun facts and stuff for "The Big Game"

Steelers are favored by 7.

SB Favorite is 23-17-2 against the spread and 30-12 straight up.
SB favorite has won 7 of the last 10 Super Bowls.
NFC teams are 22-20 in the SB.

This is the Cardinals 1st Super Bowl, but their 3rd NFL Championship game. The other two, 1947, a win, and 1948, a loss.

This is the Steelers 7th Super Bowl, 2nd most behind the Dallas Cowboys 8 appearances.
The Steelers have won 5 Super Bowls, tied for the most wins with Dallas and San Francisco.

The Cardinals are playing their 4th postseason game of the year. In the previous 88 years of their existance they played 7 postseason games.

The Steelers are playing in their 50th postseason game.

The last time the Cardinals won the championship was the first time the Steelers played a postseason game (1947).

Since the realignment of the divisions in 2002, the Cardinals are 4-4 against teams in the AFC North.
They currently have a 3 game win streak against AFC North teams, including a 21-14 win over the Steelers last year in Arizona.

The Steelers are 4-4 against the NFC West.

This will be the 4th SB in Tampa, Florida and the 2nd at Raymond James Stadium.

For the SIMsters, Accuscore.com (http://accuscore.com/option,com_acc_nfl_game_preview/Itemid,/game_id,267/tab,stats/) has played the Cardinals vs. Steelers 10,000 times and the Steelers have won 68.9% of the time by an average score of 27.1 - 20.8.

Cardinals QB Kurt Warner has the two highest yardage games in Super Bowl history (414 yards in SB 34 and 365 yards in SB 36).

Steelers RB Willie Parker has the longest run from scrimmage in Super Bowl history, 75 yards in SB 40.

This is only the 3rd Super Bowl matchup between teams from the pre-1960 era.

This is the first Super Bowl to be broadcast by NBC since SB 33 in 1998.
This will be the last Super Bowl to be broadcast in analog.

3,276,834 is the total attendance of all 42 Super Bowls.

There has NEVER been a punt return for a TD in Super Bowl history, and there's only been ONE punt return for a TD in an NFL Championship game.
The one and only time it happened was the Cardinals Charlie Trippi returning a punt 75 yards for a TD in 1947.

5% of Americans watch the game alone.

35% of the people who attend the Super Bowl, write it off as a corporate expense.

700,000 footballs are made annually for an NFL season.
72 footballs are made for the Super Bowl.

I got nothing against Bruce Springsteen, and to be honest I respect him for maturing as an artist and going for more of an acoustic/solo thing later in his career. As opposed to dudes like Aerosmith and the Stones that think they are still in their 30's. That being said, that halftime show was lame. Obviously he couldn't come out and play Philadelphia followed up with his depressing but beautiful song from the Wrestler. But that show just felt forced.

Congrats to Tomlin and the Steelers, and unlucky Cardinals, they didn't play like perennial losers, and if they show the same level of play next year, they should be great to watch again.

I guess all that remains now, is the week long wait until the Pro Bowl, and then off season blues can really begin!

1 years time, and it'll be us celebrating. Keep the faith. :texflag:

the lack of review on the final play is appaling. Nearly criminal.

Another great superbowl. I keep on pulling for the wrong team every year though.:gun:

So if the Texans make it next year i might have to pull against them so they can win.

Yea, I thought it warranted another look at least. The times they looked at the Holmes TD, I thought they could have made sure about the final play of the game, but either way, I'm not sure about it anyway, so would have been hard to overturn.

Shoulda reviewed the last play. Not a fumble.

He did not have possession of the ball when his arm started going forward. He bumped the loose ball forward with his arm. In my opinion, it was a fumble.

I hate to say this, but, for what it's worth. I agree! Cards played a good game, hung in there till the end. A lot of adrenaline flowing those last few minutes. Exciting forth quarter.

I agree. JMO but if you look at it realistically it shows his arm was going forward..the guy hits the ball and impedes the throwing motion but Warner still pushes it through the hand and pushes it off with his palm. Watch it again. Should have had another play. I get that with the guy hitting it it looks like he knocked it out but Warner kept pushing it through and still pushed it forward. Just because someones arm delays the motion doesn't mean it is a fumble if the QB fights through it. It was a b.s.

That's what I saw. It was a great game. Definitely much better than I expected. The Cards played Pittsburgh tough, and nearly came out with the win. We'll be hearing the "Legend of Big Ben" for quite some time.

I honestly think that call could have gone either way..

Could of been a great SB if not for the non-review. That was was an incomplete pass and the Cards should of had the ball back with 5 seconds on the 35.

This was a terribly officiated game from the start so no reason why it should of ended differently.

Look at the gif I posted. Warner had no control when his arm was going forward.

Horrible, Horrible officiating.

1. Block in the back on the Harrison TD return.

2. Harrison should have been ejected, and should have been a 15 yard penalty.

3. Warner was roughed two or three times with out the call while they called it on Rothlisblunder.

4. Typical Pittsburgh holding!!!!!!



The Steelers don't deserve the win. What's with them and the Refs this year!!!!!!

I saw the replay. When his arm comes forward he has the ball in his hand. By definition that is a pass.

I am not saying the Cards would of scored but the refs cheated us out of an ending.

He doesn't have the ball in his hands. It's wobbling around.

It may have wobbled but it was still in his hands. When his arm goes forward the ball is pushed out by his hand.

Either way, there should of been a both review.

Possibly the worst officiated Superbowl ever. Uneven for the same offenses. I've never seen such a critical game have so many 'marginal' calls that made such huge differences either.

The non-review at the end will become an infamous "conspiracy theory" for years to come, but I doubt it would have changed the outcome.

The Harrison TD @ the end of the 1st half had so many non-calls, I gave up on it well before he neared the endzone. Don't get me wrong Harrison made a FANTASTIC play and no blame lies on him for THAT play.

The saftey was arguably ticky tack. I thought Warner cocked the ball, but didn't go forward with it at the end.
