    You're obviously are a Steeler hater and didn't watch much of the game, lets see you make that grab in triple coverage. There was also a 100 yard interception return by the defensive player of the year, Harrison; the longest play in Super Bowl history.

    Well I had no real preference either way as far as rooting, and I watched the entire game. Why would whether I could make the plays they are making change my opinion on the game. I don't see why because I found it boring, you have to act like a complete jerk towards me. Chill out man, its called differing opinions. I found the game boring, a lot left to be desired. I've seen exciting Superbowls and I didn't think this one was, regardless of the score.

    Wasn't meaning to be a jerk towards you, I just fail to see how in any way that game was boring. There were points where it was slow, but there were enough plays made to make it exciting for fans of both sides.

    I'm with BRizer on this one. Except the 4th qtr, the game was dry. I mean i honestly nodded out a few times in the 2nd qtr. And im sorry but, yes the interception was great and all, but it doesnt make up for an ENTIRE 1st half.
    In the 4th qtr both teams finally woke up and realized 'oh **** we are at the superbowl'. It just seemed like no one was putting the 2nd effort into the game, they just laid down.
    But this is all my opinion.

    Game was awesome IMO. Lots of great plays, loved that 100 yard interception.

    I enjoyed it. Think the refs should have reviewed that last "fumble" but what's done is done. Also think Big Ben should have got the MVP, but Holmes was deserving as well.

    Decent game that was overshadowed by that fella saying at the end to the Steeler's fans to be proud of their state being champions of the world. Wait, the world? Typical yanks.

    But yeah, although I wanted the Card's, that was a rather good catch under triple coverage to win the game.

    Also, everyone at the bar I went to who didn't follow a particular team took part in a Soccer AM-style lucky dip, where you had to pick a team out of the hat and that is the team you will follow for next season. I got the Browns. Thoughts? Any Browns fans here?

    Game was better than last years. The team in that game to beat the Cardinals was the Cardinals. They were the better team but kept hurting themselves with Penaltys and Turnovers at bad times. And that last play was not a fumble ( well close either way ) and they should of taken more time to look at it in a game of that magnitude. And you can say it wouldnt matter but even a Hail Mary is a good shot with Fitgerald out there.

    And I think we have a new Super Bowl trend. And thats choosing to Defer in the beginning. I saw it happening before it did by either team.

    So I guess next we got Draft Talk ?

    I might actually watch the Pro Bowl this year.

    1337endo is a Browns fan! They really aren't as bad as the season they had. I'd say 8-8 season for them next year, missing the playoffs.

    Free Agency is on my mind right now, and I'd love to see the Eagles pick up someone good at the WR position. Anquan Boldin appears to be on the market, which would be nice, or possibly a trade up in the draft for someone like Crabtree, Harvin, or Robiskie. Eagles need that WR weapon, because Jackson, Curtis, and a 3rd weapon along with One of the top O-lines in the NFC, Westbrook and McNabb makes their team one of the best offenses as well as defenses in football.

    I don't know if I'd go as far as to say it was better than last year, but it was one of the better ones for sure. I agree with you on the notion that the Cardinals beat themselves, they had way too many holding penalties and conservative play calling in the first half.

    It's not so much turning into a Super Bowl trend, it was actually used quite a bit this past regular season. I personally think it makes more sense to get the ball first in the second half so you can potentially dictate the momentum from the start.

    Draft isn't for a bit, but I will be anxious to see how all the prospects fare in the combine and pro days?

    I think I'm going to wait for the '09 schedule before I make any win/loss predictions. Also going to wait to see who we draft, who we keep, who we lose, etc.

    ^^ Yea same with me. Plus gotta see if the Vikings finally wake up and realize we need a QB. Hell I'd even be happy with letting Booty run the offense.
    And the QB and a Corner or 2 and we'd be ready to rock.

    Just saw on ESPN that Larry Johnson and Tony Gonzalez want out of Kansas City. A potentially explosive half back and arguably the best TE in the history of the NFL.
