SEXY REXY LOL.

he stunk. he'd just launch the ball into the air and hope for the best.
I meant by his standards he had a career year. Cause he's never come close to anything like that again. 23TDs is pretty good. 20 INTs though is pretty bad. Sounds something like Brett Favre would produce.

Regardless, Pitt's offense isn't really good. Just like Chicago's wasn't good. Buth both had punishing defenses.

I'm rooting for both the Steelers and the Cards, I just want a good game
Well, yeah..... uber-Passionate fans are always annoying. Terry Bradshaw was annoying. Bill Cowher was annoying. Defensive teams are annoying.

I like Roethlisberger, though. I'll be happy for him if they win.

But mostly I'm cheering for the underdog, the Cinderella Story. The fact that they happen to be all about offence is a major plus for me. Go Cards.

he's never come close to that again because he's sitting on the pine. his coach's tossed him on the bench after that season, and he hasnt really seen the light of day since.

totaally agree on the defenses though, Pitt's Defense is game changing. one big Defensive play and they take all the momentum.

My head says Pittsburgh, but my heart wants Arizona. I just don't want the game to be finished by halftime or midway through the 3rd.

i too am extremely torn on this one.
i like roethlesberger and want him to win another ring.
but i dont really like PITT.
I actually like Warner and wouldnt mind seeing the veteran win another ring.
i love the cards offense and love watching them air it out.

i dunno who to root for.
i'll be fine if anyone wins.

my prediction however, is PITT running away with an easy win, due to Warner playing horribly.

if Zona builds a quick 10 point lead and Pitt veers from its run first offense then Arizona wins, this happened to Carolina a couple weeks ago. Roethlesberger isn't someone you want throwing 40 times a game and I'm sure Tomlin is smart and sticks with his offensive gameplan.

Zona got this on lock

Also, when Indy won, ppl dont remember, but they had one of the worst REGULAR season Ds, but the best PLAYOFF D, they stepped up huge in the playoffs, thats why they won.

I have watched like 5 times the super-bowl, only once I found it entertaining. Are all those time-outs/commercials needed?

This is true. And their D has looked VERY strong thus far.

How can you hate Warner and Fitz though? Class acts all the way.

If Fitz catches another 2-3 TDs he'll likely cement himself as the best WR in the game today (if he hasn't already).

Companies pay HUGE dollars for the right to advertise during the Superbowl. It's pretty crazy.

I don't like time-outs/commercials but for the networks who pay $700+ mil for NFL rights they want the commercials to make money and Super Bowl ad prices, per 30 seconds, is $3 million.

a 30 second commercial for 3 million... wow.
i guess they pay off and its worth the 3 million for companies.
so hypothetically, lets say RF did a 30 second commercial during the superbowl, how many hits do you think we'd get within the next 24 hours?

It works for some companies and it doesn't for others. At this juncture, I don't think there will be a lot of companies will to fork out 3 million for a 30-second ad.
Heck, there are even seats going for 3K in the lowerbowl, which is unheard of.
