**My Thoughts On Who's Gonna Win the Super Bowl**


What's the one event that is dominating every sports station and sports radio this week??? The Super Bowl... Yes, it is this Sunday Feb. 1... I have mixed feelings on this game... Out of anger and jealousy, I hope that the Steelers put a butt whoopin on the Cardinals(because the cardinals beat my eagles a couple of weeks ago)... On the other hand, I wouldn't mind seeing the Cardinals winning a Superbowl because it will be their first one ever... With this said, I've heard a lot of the NFL analysts and sports talk radio talk up the Cardinals and that they are on a mission... I've even seen a few NFL analysts pick the Cardinals in a upset... Well let me tell you this!!! I'm not having none this Cinderella BS get to me... I've watched both teams last three games a couple of times so here are my keys for both teams in order to win and I will give you my prediction at the end...


Let's start with the Cardinals... Cardinals are yes on a mission...(no not for the church:) They have changed their offensive approach with a reamped running game led by "The Edge" Edgerrin James(who was benched in week 15 and now back with a vengeance) backed up by two special players rookie Tim Hightower and 2nd year man JJ arrington from Cal Berkley... Of course you can't forget "OLD MAN WARNER" still slinging that ball like he was back in Canadian Football League(what the...)... It's not hard to be successful when you have a recieving corps with a bunch of wild animals... "Mr. Jumping Kangaroo" Larry Fitzgerald who can out jump the majority of DB's, "Mr. Fierce Lion" Aquan Boldin who will run you over or out run you so be ready, and lastly "Mr. Spider Monkey" Steve Breaston who is quicker than his feet can hold him at times... On the defensive side... They were way inconsistent during the regular season and they still allowed a lot of points to be scored on them... However, this is what changed... They are much more stingy and the front 4 is getting to the QB... The biggest change that has happened is the Turnover battle... Cardinals already have 11 turnovers forced compared to a whoppin 18 forced during the regular season...


Cadinals Key to Sucess:

-Get the "Edge" invloved early to keep Pittsburg's stout "D" honest...

-Give the "Jumping Kangaroo" the ball as many time as you can...(seriously Warner can just throw it up and Fitz will go get it...)

-Keep Warner clean... O-Line needs to sustain their blocks... (good luck because the defensive of MVP Harrison is coming and don't forget Woodley on the otherside)


-Find ways to create turnovers

-LASTLY KEEP ALL 22 EYES ON #43 THE SAMOAN WARRIOR TROY POLAMALU




Now on to the other side of the field with the Pittsburg Steelers... They have kept the same mentality throughout the season and now through the post season... They play all 4 quarters with PHYSICALITY and if you are still sticking around, don't led up because you'll get your head taken off(go talk to willis mcgahee...he'll tell you)... The biggest change that Pittsburg has made is their running game... They weren't running the ball very much and was putting it in "Big Ben's" hands... There were early injuries to the O-line and some of the O-line left during the off season so they were out of sync... Now that they have played a full season and 2 games in the off season and now have a healthy willie parker backed up by Mewelde Moore... They will have Arizona's D on their heels... Even though the running game was obsolete... The passing game has always been there... Big Ben is playing hurt and doesn't complain one bit(this white man is crazy)... Hines Ward and Sanantonio Holmes are out there to prove they are up there with the best in reciever tandems... On that defense... One word to desribe them "FEROCIOUS!!!!" The #1 defense in the NFL... They will not stop hitting unitl the last whistles blow... This "D" has a ton of playmakers starting with the NFL's Defensive MVP Harrison and Woodley on the other side... Also interior LB's Farrior and DL's Casey Hampton, Kiesel(unfortunetly from BYU but he doesn't bleed blue anymore... Its gold and black)... No one can forget that SOFT SPOKEN MONSTER IN THE BACKFIELD "SAMOAN WARRIOR" TROY PALUMALU... One word desribe him is "UNBELIEVABLE..." Steelers Keys to Success:

-RUN THE BALL DOWN THE CARDS MOUTH...

-Once the running game is established... Hit a home run hitter with a play action pass deep to Ward or Holmes or Washington or even Miller(the TE)...

-Keep the Cards Offense in check

-Create turnovers

-I would say pass block but Big Ben will take care of himself... The O-line needs to be physical and establish their presence in RUN BLOCKING...

-Make the Cards one demionsional... Make Warner beat you with his arm... GOOD LUCK... TROY PALUMALU WILL BE BALL HAWKING...



MY PREDICTIONS:

This was a tough one for me to predict... However, I can't see the Steelers losing this one... All that BS with the "Cards on a Mission." I won't buy in at all... I know a lot of you think that because the Cards handled my Eagles is why I'm rebelling against this "mission." "Not so fast my friend..." I know that the Pittsburgh "Steel Curtain" will take care of Warner and Larry the Kangroo... REMEMBER WHAT THEY SAY DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS...



Final Score:


Pittsburgh 27 Arizona 23


Feel free to comment on your own predictions... A matter of fact BE A MAN AND STATE YOUR OPINION...

I would like the cardinals to win, but I got to agree with the BIG!!!! tongan guy defense wins games. And from what I saw how the steelers are being stingy with there defense. This game is in the books. Steelers win 30-21

I honestly don't think it will even be a good game. the Steelers defense is sooooo sick and ben rothlesberger has matured so much since the last Super Bowl he won. I think the score will be 27 - 10 For the steelers!!

I am going for the opposite of Lisiate... I have to add a little husband-wife tension for the big game, So... GO Arizona!!! But, I really like Troy and Ben!
