For once in a very long time I truly don't have a vested interest in either team that will be playing in the big game. On the one hand you have Seattle, who has never been to the big dance. And on the other you have Pittsburgh, with Jerome Bettis finally getting there and playing in front of his hometown in what could be the final game of his career.

I just hope for a good, close game that will be more entertaining than the commercials.

Sorry guys, but it's Pittsburgs year. After going 15-1 last year they bounced back from injuries this year to end the season with a strong run, then beat the best of the best on the road (remember cincinatti, Indianapolis and Denver? Whupped em all in their own houses!) I'd like to see the hawks get there too but they weren't so terribly dominating at the end there, they just did enough to get her done. Steelers look like world beaters.

From a guy who has bled black and gold for 30+ years,I hope they get it done.
You got to love Cower; the Jaw, the spit, the enthusiasm! Would love to see him finally get his due and Bettis is one of the NFL's class act's. They are definatly the last of of the "old school" franchises. Should be a good game I'm ready!!!!

I have to admit publically that I am a Redskins fan, and I must root against the team that ended their playoff hopes. GO STEELERS!

NOT GONNA HAPPEN!

The bus only ran for 368 yards all year and Parker 1202, combined were less than Alexander's 1,880 yards. Touchdown totals for both were (9 + 4) for 13 td's - less than half of Shaun's 28 TD's this season. I love the bus but Cower's chin is going to get more total yards and I see Alexander putting two into the end zone on the ground in addition to the potent Seattle air attack which will add two more before Josh Brown's field goals for a healthy win.

The defense is equally credited for their making it to the big game, Seattle has a flying Samoan too but cleancut rookie of the year candidate who destroyed Carolina. Seattle led the league in sacks this season and big Ben is not going to get away with all the near-miss dropped interceptions he has lucked into for the last three games with this Seattle backfield who has proven to have sticky hands against a much more potent passing game when Carolina came to call.

Clearly Seattle is the better of the two teams and the high Steeler's emotion alone will not overcome the better played game by the better team. Hasselbeck is making decisions as sharp as Tom Brady out there and no team balances the run and the air attack as well as Seattle while spreading the ball around to as many as 10 receivers in one game.

On any given day anyone can win but I think the better team will take it, and with the 18 Super bowl rings just on the Seattle coaching staff Holmgrens boys will lead the team to a handy victory.

Besides I am donating all of my winnings to a 15 year olfd karate student in my class who was chosen to represent US in a tournament in Osaka Japan. Her father recently passed away and without our help she can not go.

GO SEAHAWKS

OK now you've done it! What division do the Seagulls I mean Seahawks play in the NFC west? So they play the niners,cardnials, and rams twice pretty good teams to beaf up your stats against. They did beat Indy but I don't think anyone can really count that. They lost to Jackson ille wich I think would be thier strongest AFC opponent The Steelers also lost to Jacksonville But Tommy Maddox thru 3 interseptions one in OT for a touchdown. Pittsburgh is a different team with Ben. Now I'm not a trash talker but I think Seattle may also be a little light on the defensive line. To be honest I think the only chance they have on offense is the quick passing game.

As far as the better team ask Cincinnati, Indy,and the Broncos who is the most physical defense they played all year. And no one can argue that the Steelers offence is scary I see thunder and lightning pushing right through Seattle and Ben is hot right now.

As far as coaches go Cowher has consitantly done more with less than any other coach in the league. Who get s to 4 AFC championships with a rookie, Maddox and Kordel Stewart. This time he finally has the weapons.

Hey, thats why they play the game to be honest if it was any other team besides the Steelers playing your hawks I 'd probably be rooting for them. I see the Steelers in a close one eventually wearing down the Gulls (Hawks).

All in good sportsmanship of course...

but to hear you say that the Seattle ground game is not going to be part of the winning equation for Seattle birds of prey is interesting... league MVP, most touchdowns in the history of football, 5 pro bowl starters on offense, in addition to the power air attack which is formidable to say the least. Even the back up backs are crushing runners and behind that all-pro offensive line they will get it done as they did even when Shaun was knocked out of the game during the playoffs.

I think Seattle will in fact establish the run, and that will be lights out for the avg 3 yards per running play steelers. It's Pitt that has to worry about their running game. Ben will have to pass to win, and the leads leading sackers on the Seattle defense will wreak havoc causing turnovers and 3 and outs if the steelers stick to their weak running game with easy field position for the potent Seattle offense.

When the whole package is tallied the talent is lopsided in favor of Seattle, and if they execute there will be no question who the champions are. It all boils down to execution.

i'm pulling for the steelers. keep it in the afc,at least.

Plus, they took out my broncos so if they win then at least the broncos were beaten by the BEST... an easier pill to swallow.

I watched that game and gave as much credit to the Broncos for playing badly as I gave the Steelers for taking advantage.

Well it gets worse. Wind storm knocked out power to 100,000 homes in a tri-county area (Seattle was ground zero); number is now to '40,000 people in the tri county area).

Who knows what 40K people represent in the number of homes effected ... but by definition it's got to be a lot. But that's whose sitting in the dark as I type.

Wow that is big talk!! Were did you buy that crystal ball your looking into!
I hope the Seattle payers have the same overblown opions of themselves as you seem too.

I am of the opinion to get to this position you better have some talent and there is no doubt Seattle does but so do the Steelers. I could make the argument the Seagulls victory over the Panthers had more to with the Panthers self -distructing then the Gulls Dominating. I mean they (panthers) were down to there 4 th runningback and they aren't that good of a running team to begin with.
AND it ALWAYS boils down to execution.

Wow this is fun isn't it!!!

What happened in Seattle? big storm?

Truth be known this is one of those hard ones. I know we are just joking back and forth but I do mean this in earnest. They both deserve to win, but only one can. Jerome is without a doubt a future hall of famer and Shaun is a future shoe-in. Matt is clearly setting the stage for a future induction as well as Ben, football heroes all.

The only bigger dilemma for me would be a superbowl where my former home team Seattle played my new home team the New England Patriots! (I now live on the east coast)

It will be a good game and neither outcome will be one of complete disappointment. Neither will be of complete fulfillment either. May the best team win!

let's check in after the game (I actually have to work for a few hours)
