Urgh. I'm finding it hard to get pumped for this football game. I can't stand the Ben led Steelers, and the Packers hype is also making my pretty sick. Texanstalk it is over to you. The only way to make this an important game for me is some gambling.

For the game, I'm taking the Steelers (experience, yadda, yadda).

For the MVP, I'm unsure. Aaron Rodgers is 3/2, and pretty much a certainty if the Pack win the game, but at those odds, I'm not tempted - looking for some higher priced options. It is a toss up between Mike Wallace, and Hines Ward so far as that goes.

Come on guys, don't let me down - make my Superbowl matter. What are y'all rooting for.

The Packers seem to be showing a much more motivated affect towards this game than the Steelers. I believe that the most hungry team will likely persevere.

Here's to an aggressive injury-free game.

Video: Christina Aguilera goofs up the national anthem
By Doug Farrar

Perhaps she was too concerned with breaking Patti LaBelle's record for turning single-syllable words into entire paragraphs during the singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner," but noted ex-teen queen Christina Aguilera botched the national anthem something fierce before the Super Bowl. Aguilera started out all right, but she had a problem with the ramparts -- specifically, the "O'er the ramparts we watched" line, which she left out altogether. ..

Aguilera tried to make up for it by combining two lines -- "What so proudly we watched," instead of "What so proudly we hailed", but let's just say that it was too late to reverse the error. Twitter blew up, and all Aguilera could do was to oversing every word from there on out, which she most certainly did.

It was a fitting tribute for a Super Bowl that has seen procedural errors all over the place, from the inability of the city of Dallas to deal with unusual weather to the last-minute news that 400 unlucky people would not get to sit in their paid-for seats.

Bonus goof-up points for the flyover at the end of the song - too bad nobody saw it, what with the roof closed at Cowboys Stadium and all!

Come on. I'm not going to get into this again. He had led one of the top drives in SB history. He has been to 3 SBs when the same defensive type team wasn't getting there before. In another thread I put up his stats..over 4000 last year..and his QB rating 3 of the last 4 years has been over 97. Again, I'll trust the pros out there.

http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=79004&page=9

Last year Ben had 4,328 yds, 26 TDs and 12 ints. This year, with 4 games out because of suspension he has 3200, 17 and 5. That is pretty strong. His play is a definite plus. It isn't like he is riding the D and being game manager. He is 9-2 in playoff games and most of these guys who win multiple SBs have intangibles. We all have seen it. At the end of games he makes the right plays and throws.

And yet his passer rating the last 4 years going backward is 97, 100.5, 80.1, 104.1. Not too shabby there at all. How are all these stats overrated when he then wins in big games too. That is what I'm wondering.




As for the game, Rodgers is getting screwed on drops. His teammates are letting him down.

Great game I thought. I wanted to see the Steelers win but it's hard not to be happy for Green Bay. They're a very good team and they don't have a Manning anywhere on the squad (but do have a Matthews thanks to our choosing Cushroid instead of Clay).

The thing is I was talking to my friend Barry and where Steelers Super Bowl losses are concerned you can realistically say "They'll be back" because history has shown that this team will return to this level from time to time. If the Texans had lost the Super Bowl like the Cardinals or Seahawks did then I'd be thinking that they'd just blown their one chance in my lifetime to win a title. With the Steelers it's not such a big deal. They'll be back.

The same people who used to love Vince Young because all he did was win. Big Ben, he is a winner not a good QB.

Not extremely difficult to win with the best defense in the league.

I would put Big Ben in a similiar class to Favre, he chucks the ball up and hopes. Both are spectacular but not Classic Good QBs.

I have been saying that Ben is a good qb but not a great one all along. He can't carry a team when his defense doesn't show up. makes great plays once in a while but depends on his running game and defense to put him over the top in most games.

Rapistberger plays for the Steelers and the Steelers are literally a factory where things like success and excellence are concerned. They will almost to a man get the most out of every player on their roster and be one of a handful of teams that contend for a title nearly every season. Rapistberger will therefore end his career (barring injury) with between 2 and 4 rings at the rate they're going. With four rings he'll get in with even average numbers.

You see, it's not about Schaub vs Rapistberger. That comparison isn't going to tell you anything. It's about comparing the organizations. That one in Pittsburgh is a dynasty going on four decades with no end in sight. If it were a building it would be the NFL version of the Great Pyramids. The one here in Houston is by comparison a double-wide trailer with one of those fancy wooden porches tacked on the front.

I'd be more optimistic of the Texans prospects if they'd at least made some progress learning to cut stone but they haven't. They seem perfectly content with their little pre-fab franchise and their string of meaningless bull**** sellouts.

Man, he looked like he was in outer space tonight.

Outside of two good throws: One to Ward in the corner of the EZ, which was a Brett Favre type of "Hell, I'm throwing this thang up there and see what happens" pass, and the long TD pass to Wallace (where the cornerback bit wrongly on the Wallace stutter step at the snap) what passes, to you, looked like good passes by Ben?

Mendenhall, other than coughing up the rock on one play, looked solid to me.

The passing game was off. I attribute most of that to the Packers defense who smartly spied Ben on many plays, keeping him honest on his scrambling skills, but I just saw a disconnected nature with Ben. And I wonder if the Steelers might try to move on.

The Packers moved on, with Rodgers instead of Brett, and so it's possible to pull off that type of move.

Just a thought I have, but then again...It's hard to find a solid QB who pans out in the long-run. So the Steelers might be OK with him.

The Steelers, IIRC, are on record as saying they have no problem moving on from Ben. Now, this is generally accepted as meaning he can't have another altercation in public that disgraces the Steelers name.

However, with a lackluster Super Bowl performance and turnovers hat resulted in points, I wouldn't put it past the Steelers to try and deal him for players or picks or both.

This is a premiere team we're talking about, not our team. Tomlin looked livid after the game. His comments were blunt. They're at a point where they know they are good enough to replace even the biggest "star" on their roster.

I never said it WILL happen, I am just saying they could end up doing it. Especially if his offseason is rough.

The Steelers would be fools to deal Ben. He is a top 10 QB. Did he have a bad game? Sure, but everyone has bad games. One INT occurred becuase his arm was hit and the other was a poor pass. He also overthrew a receiver or two. But guess what, he is also the same guy who led the team down the field and won the Superbowl against Arizona and was the guy who beat the Jets 2 weeks ago.

Who would you replace Big Ben with right now? McNabb: pass. Kolb: unproven. draft someone: nobody in the draft is as good as Ben.

That was just abominable. I swear that was easily the worst half-time show I've ever seen at a Super Bowl and I can't understand the appeal of that group. Ok, possibly in a studio or some other environment where the music accompanying them can be heard maybe someone, somewhere might enjoy listening to them but last night it was pitiful. You could rarely hear anything but the crowd cheering and the four of them shouting. They look like four randomly chosen fools standing up there wearing TRON costumes and shouting gibberish into microphones and nothing more. The only part of that show that even approached being entertaining was when they brought Slash out and began stealing some of the last remaining "cool" from his old band's memory.

The Black eyed Peas were terrible on a whole new level. They made Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake look like musical geniuses.

That was just abominable. I swear that was easily the worst half-time show I've ever seen at a Super Bowl and I can't understand the appeal of that group.

I came back in from a smoke break and caught them singing a song whose whole lyrics were "Boom" and "Pow". Mute button time.

And Slash:vincepalm:

I bet Axl got a good laugh/

Meh, I think it was one of the best half time shows in a few years. Off the top of my head they were a better 'show' than The Who, Springsteen, The Stones from recent years.

I wouldn't go buy their music, and they had a few glitches, but the visual efffects of the half time show were pretty good, and it was a lot more exciting than the Springsteen tea-bag ordeal.

Prince was much better. Nothing has come close to U2 after 9/11.

As far as younger artists I'd like to see what Muse, the White Stripes, or the Foo Fighters can do.

Amazing how Roethlisberger looks like an average QB when his defense doesn't show up.

21 of the 31 Packer points came off turnovers, so I wouldn't say the Steelers defense didn't show up.

Huh? The only turnover that resulted in direct points was the pick six. The other two, the Packers still had to go half of the field. If you have the #1 defense, they need to hold them to at least a field goal. And Rodgers threw for over 300 and should have thrown for more if it wasn't for many drop passes. So no the Steelers D didn't show up.

It's a stat I heard multiple times during the Super Bowl & Hines Ward mentioned it during an interview. Points off turnovers are points scored after a turnover is committed, it doesn't necessary have to be scored during the turnover. One turnover was a direct result of seven points, while the other two started close to the 50. You aren't going to have too much success as a defense when the offense gets the ball close to their side of the field, though I agree that holding the Packers to a FG would have been huge for the Steelers. I'm just pointing out that the defense did show up, they were just hurt by the three turnovers given up by their offense.

Dom Capers’ defense forced three turnovers and Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense cashed in for 21 points as Green Bay outlasted Pittsburgh 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Texas.

For Green Bay, it’s the most points they’ve generated as the result of turnovers in team playoff history.

Two takeaways in the first half helped stake the Packers to a 21-3 lead. The hat trick, coming on the first play of the fourth quarter, swung momentum back Green Bay’s way as Pittsburgh was gunning for the lead.

I understand the literal translation of points off turnover. Just saying that they still had half the field to go and score a TD. 50 yards is really not that close. And it's just my opinion that if my defense allows 350 yards of offense and comes up with no turnovers then I really don't consider that showing up. Maybe I'm wrong but I want my defense, especially my #1 ranked defense to play better than that.

Isn't a missed field goal considered a turnover? And didn't the Packers turn around and score after that? I don't remember, maybe they didn't.

I've never known a missed FG to be counted as a turnover and I think GB did score on the next drive.

Lol, the FG miss was so terrible I almost ducked.

Nah, they didn't score on that drive. The Packers did not score at all in the third quarter.

It's considered a turnover on downs I believe, same as going for it on 4th and failing. For what that's worth.

If that were the case every punt would be a turnover. I'm assuming you mean it counts in the turnover stat column. No. It is not a turnover.
