Yes. His departure was what made me hate the Giants.

I love Kurt. And Twilight.

Yeah, that and the Giants winning the Super Bowl after his departure probably didn't help.

I want the Steelers to win just so I don't have to hear Reverend Warner thank God for winning the Super Bowl. If the Steelers win, I'm sure Big Ben will thank Him, but it won't be as prolonged.

In all seriousness, I've got to go with the Cardinals on this one. I don't like the thought of the Steelers with more rings than the Cowboys. That's really the only reason.

The Steelers are a lead pipe lock to win.

Whenever one of the Super Bowl teams has entered the playoffs with the league's #1 defense, they have won every single time.

They did. I'd like him to actually win one though.

It's interesting with the Cardinals that a win could mean so much to the legacy of some of these players. Kurt Warner and Edgerrin James are both in the discussion for the Hall of Fame. A Super Bowl ring could put them in. Down the line, a ring could help Larry Fitzgerald if he gets into that discussion too.

Yeah, I think James would prefer to earn it instead of having it given to him.

That was like four years ago, dick.

I'm glad you're going to the Super Bowl so I don't have to hear from you for a weekend. I hope the Steelers lose in dramatic fashion and you cry the entire plane ride home. Your tears sustain me.

I want the Cardinals to win, i know they are underdogs who presided over a weak division and are going up against ridiculous Pittsburg defense. They have all the odds stacked against them. Then again the Giants did last year too and we know how that turned out.

Jon Gruden went up against his former team in 2003 and dismantled them, i like Wisenhut to do the same this year. Sure Gruden had the #1 defense on his side back then, but the fact that Pittsburg is so confident and nobody is giving Arizona a chance plays out well i think.

Yeah....if Wisenhut had taken over a team from Dungy instead of Green...maybe. AND, those Raiders cannot be compared this years Steelers.

They are who we thought they were...

yeah i realize we're talking apples to oranges here, but give me a break im grasping at straws. No analogy can adequately describe this years game at this point, the line hasnt moved, the money isnt really moving compared to years past. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

I just hate to see Pittsburg get their 6th ring. Then again, if they were playing that other silly bird team instead of the Cardinals i would be rooting for Pissburg while holding my nose.

That, plus I'm pretty sure that even if it is the case that the Steelers had entirely the same playbook and audibles from the Whisenhunt days, they'll change a few things around.

This is either going to be a three-point (or less) game, or a forty-point blowout for Pittsburgh.

At this point I'm just as excited for the party I'm going to and the halftime show (Bruuuuuuuuuuuce) than for the game

One would think/hope that would be the case....but how many people could have seen this matchup before the season started? Answer...nobody. Maybe they have changed some things around in the last couple of weeks when it became official, but how long does it take to restructure your offensive scheme and get all of the players on the same page? (more than two weeks). Of course the Steeler offense isn't exactly one of the more complex ones out there...so who knows.

Pittsburg is confident, they don't give two shits about Gruden vs Al Davis 2003. Big Ben has "guaranteed" a win, and they are going to waltz into Tampa and blow the Cardinals out. At least thats the plan, and thats what people expect them to do. No way they can beat that Defense, even though several other teams (NYG anyone?) found a way to do it in the regular season. Nevermind that Arizona has been on a little streak of their own, beating Atlanta (another hot team), beating Carolina on the road (who saw that coming), and beating the Eagles (who were a hot team themselves and had just knocked off the defending super bowl champs NYG the week prior).

Arizona believes they can win, but haven't guaranteed squat. And since the winner will most likely invoke God, as mentioned before, i will bring up a biblical reference of my own that will surely come up at some point. This is David versus Goliath, and im hoping David can pull it off "again", if you believe in that sort of thing.

Didn't Pittsburgs' only SB loss take place in Arizona, the 1996 game against Dallas? I know none of this means anything really, hopefully we will get a good game and nobody gets hurt.
