What is there something else going on today? Oh yeah the Super Bowl.Â I neverÂ understood why people who never watch footballÂ get all excitedÂ to watch the Super Bowl? It would be like me watching the finale of Desperate Housewives a showÂ I couldn’t give a rats ass about.Â
That’s why I avoid Super Bowl parties. I’ve been dragged to a few in my day by my wife but even she would get annoyed with all the questions I’d be asked at these functionsÂ asking to explain ever play and all the rules and that’s why I’ll be home in my Archie Bunker recliner enjoying the game.
What I look for today is who wins the turnover battle. Ben Roethlisberger has a tendency to throw picks and the Cardinal defense has been getting turnovers this post season so that is an intriguing matchup. Can the Steelers run the football and control the clock on offense and use a ball control offense as a defense to keep Kurt Warner and his wide outs on the sidelines?Â
This game looks to be a very good matchup and from reading all the predictions from the experts most of them are split right down the middle. I have to say I’ve flip flopped all week trying to decide who I think will win but in the end I always go with the team that plays the best defense and that’s the Steelers So it’s Steelers 24-17 (right on the number) for me and Ring 6 for the Terrible Towlers.
