    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'll be rooting for the Cardinals but I think the Steelers are going to crush them.

    I hope I'm lucky on my squares.

    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.

    Same here. The Card's D showed signs of slowing down today. I think that if the Steelers can out score Arizona, they will win....... :heh:

    I'll allow the Cardinals to win their first Super Bowl once the Texans win their first.

    I'm pulling for the Cards all the way but don't think they can last a full 60 minutes against the Steelers.

    Steelers 23
    Cards 17

    I don't think the Cards have what it takes to beat the Steelers in the big one. It says here the Steelers are the first to win 6 super bowls. And I also say better the Steelers than the Cowpatties to reach that landmark first.

    this is the first Super Bowl quarterback match-up of previous champions since Super Bowl XVIII, between the Redskins and Raiders (Theissman and Plunkett), which took place in Tampa. coincidence? absolutely

    rooting for the Cardinals here, as everyone should do

    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.

    i do worry about the Whisenhunt offense being well-known by the Steelers defense. see: Bucs vs. Raiders

    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

    I can't believe I am going to have to pull for the Cards. I hate the Steelers.

    At least its not as bad as last years SB when I was forced to be a Giants fan for one game.

    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.
