Who do you think is going to win?

The extra added storyline is Ken Whisenhunt is the former offensive coordinator for the Steelers under Cowher Power.  Alot of the media is saying that he was passed over for the Steelers head coach job, but this is not necessarily true, because Whis took the Arizona job before Tomlin even completed his 2nd interview.  Larry Fitzgerald's father made a comment last night and said somehting like Pittsburgh is going to learn that they made the wrong decision of passing over Whis and hiring Tomlin.  So, the media seems to be playing up that angle. 

Anquan Boldin throws a hissy fit even though his team wins the NFC Championship and moves on to the Super Bowl.  Will he be a distraction?  Will the Cards to need to create a game plan to keep him happy?

What is the current spread on the game?

Will the Steelers be able to run the ball agains the Cards?  Will Pittsburgh be able to stop Warner and his recieving corps?

This is horseshit. Sure, Wisenhunt may have done well in Pittsburgh, but Tomlin's got them in the Big Game At The End, too. Even if they lose, I doubt there will be second guessing.

Shitsburgh over 'Zona 27-13.

I'm thinking low scoring for some reason.  Steelers 17-7.

I am more nervous about this game then the last SB against Seattle.  I don't know why.   I hate the Steelers being favored.  I would much rather be the dog going into the game.

It's the running game that's down in the dumps that's got you worried. Don't worry, Big Ben will have one, maybe two scrambling bomb TDs against that 'Zona secondary.

Nah, I had to put up with the running game problems all season.  I do think that if the Stillers can get it going it will help their efforts immensely by keeping Warner off of the field.

I think what bothers me is that for some reason I can see the Cards hitting some big bombs or gadgets that will result in points quickly.  They have the weapons to do it.

I think the key is going to be the Steelers D versus the Cards O.  If the Steelers can contain Warner and Fitz, then I am confident that the Steelers can eventually put the points on the board.

Something just keeps telling me that the Cards are going to throw something at the Steelers that they are not expecting.  Is it because Whis used to match up against LeBeau in practice?  Maybe that's what it is.

Fitz is going to get some crazy ass catches, he's so good you can't completely prevent it. The key is to do what they did with SD and keep him contained until the end so when he does get the big play it ends up being garbage points.

I don't see AZ getting anywhere with the run game, which is going to mean the secondary can sit on the receivers and wait for Warner to throw a couple of INTs.

Watch Arizona's third quarter performance vs Philly and you will feel alot better.

I kind of hope the Cards jump out to an early lead, since it seems they'll completely piss their pants and give it away in the second half.
