    I'm not afraid to admit I'm a bit scared about this game. I was pulling for Carolina after my Steelers won yesterday. :)

    The Seahawks looked nothing short of spectacular. Their offense is kicking it on all cylinders and it will take a superior effort by the Steelers D to hold them down.

    Shaun Alexander had over 1800 yards rushing. Hasselbeck had 3400 passing. Engram and Jurevicius ate up a lot of yards receiving...

    Then again, so did Carlson Palmer (Kitna), Peyton Manning, Jake Plummer, Corey Dillon, Edgerrin James, Tatum Bell & Anderson accompanied by Rod Smith at WR. The #1, #2 & #3 seeds in the AFC were all dominated by the Steelers in various, and almost every aspect of the game.

    2 very well coached teams running on high octane. Should be a superb game. One QB will make history, Hasselbeck or Roethlisberger. I give the edge to Big Ben but Hasselbeck has Alexander in the backfield to keep the Steelers well on their toes.

    Congrats to both teams on their respective conference titles, and good luck in the Super Bowl XL!

    Btw - the Super Bowl was named XL (extra large) because they know the Bus will be getting his long awaited and deserving ring! :)

    I don't know a thing about the record of these two teams, but from the final scores yesterday, I'd say this is going to be one good Super Bowl to watch.

    As for yesterday's games: Denver's offense apparently thought they could sit out the first half. Jake Plummer's outing was nothing short of crappy, which is too bad, because I've always pulled for him. I think he's a good QB for the Broncos, but yesterday, he stank. Pittsburgh showed that they have a lot of heart.

    Carolina - weren't they supposed to have a defense? Like, guys who can stop the other team from scoring? They must have forgotten that there was a game. Seattle's D, on the other hand, totally shut down the one-dimensional Caroina offense of Steve Smith, knocked out the Carolina RB (quite literally), and basically PWN3D the Panthers.

    My only concern if I were a Steelers fan - what if Denver doesnt lose the ball 4 times. 21 points comes off the score.

    I'm very excited for the SB, although as-is, I don't mind if Seattle Loses. I'm just thrilled beyond imagination Seattle will be there. I honestly doubted I'd see it in my lifetime.

    :)

    woot!

    He got knocked the fuck out. I'm sure living rooms across America all went Ohhhhhhhhhh! when they showed that replay. It was sweet.

    Just heard on SportsRadio:

    "...and chance of rain today, but who really gives a damn..."

    I'd be more concerned about that stat if I were a Seahawks fan! One INT by Plummer was atrocious, but the Steelers forced the other 3 turnovers and harassed Plummer all afternoon - the same thing they did to Manning.
