Super Bowl Time!

The Steelers are clear favorites and having beaten both Indianapolis and Denver to make the big game it would appear they've got the best recent form. The citizens of the Motor City seem to have taken them to their bosoms so it'll probably seem like a home game for Pittsburgh.


It's a long way from mild Washington to freezing Detroit but if you look at the stats Seattle seems to have the edge. Hasselbeck has thrown for longer than Roethlisberger although their completions are about the same. And Shaun Alexander has rushed like a madman and scored 28 TDs, more than Hines Ward & The Bus combined.

If Seattle doesn't get flustered by a potentially hostile Detroit crowd then they could slip under Pittsburgh's radar and make it home.

Anyone agree?

It was indeed a snoozer

With these two teams I expected better. Oh well. Some of the playoff games were great. The Rose Bowl is something that won't be topped for a LONG time.

Game Report.

It was somewhat boring. The Rose Bowl was far better.

Seattle did get a few tough decisions, namely: the bogus pass interference that cost them an early TD and Roethlisberger's TD--it just didn't break the plane. Any fool could see it. Big Ben even admitted, on Letterman, that he didn't think he was over.

Roll on September; in the meantime, I'm rootin' for the NBA cheerleaders Smiling

Sorry, I was so upset that I accidently posted 3 times Smiling. This Opera browser doesn't mix very well with SOLO Passion and there seemed to be a momentary glitch.

Seahawks

Seahawks by 14. I'll take Mike Holmgren over Bill Cowher any day. Especially with two weeks to prepare. Also, I think Seattle's young team will match up well against Pittsburgh's brute strength.

Gee, Jason, you *must* be

Gee, Jason, you *must* be distraught if you posted that twice Sad

Denver sure looked good after smacking New England but obviously steel doesn't rust at 6,000 feet Smiling

Still Upset

I'm still wallowing in depression after Denver lost more then a week ago. I suppose I'll take Pittsburgh but both teams are solid in every respect. It will come down to clutch plays and turnovers.

Mmm, I think it'll be closer

Mmm, I think it'll be closer than many expect but what's essentially a home town advantage combined with the Steelers' recent wins may translate to some kind of crazy football manifest destiny scenario that Seattle may not be able to overcome. I don't know which way to go.

I'm taking my usual

I'm taking my usual stance... I'm behind the guys who beat my hometown.

Oh crap did I just make a bet?... I got fricking moving expenses this month!

It all basically comes back to fight or flight.

I think Pittsburgh has used up all of it's luck. I say the Seahawks by 6.
