    I predict it's not looking good for the Steelers...

    No Mendenhall... No Clark... maybe no Roethlisberger?

    I know that Mendenhall is out and Big Ben is questionable with that ankle injury, but what's up with Clark? Looks like the defense is going to have to step up and stop Tebow from running all across the field.

    I know that the Steelers do not design specific schemes opponent-by-opponent, but how the hell does no one in the coaching staff tell the defense to not sell-out against the run in ultra-probable play-action situations?

    All I can say about that game is it's a shame the Steelers weren't healthy :lol:

    That was an awesome game (big Denver fan). There was a post over on the Broncos forums about some numbers which happened to contain 316 (threw for 316 yards etc). But I have discovered that Tim Tebow is actually the devil, read my blog entry for details on this profound discovery:

    I for one am happy for you :lol:.

    As a typicaly disgusted Bear fan I always have used the Giants as my surrogate team once the bears are out of it (usualy by week 12).

    I'm just glad it didn't end up being a Harbough vs Harbough super bowl.
    The press would've hounded that storyline into the ground.

    I'm picking the Giants for a 34-31 victory over Pats.

    Hoping to see Brady go 4/5. They're my team once the Browns are out of it (week 1 or so...).

    I can't wait to see the Pats destroy the Giants. I hate the Giants with a passion, and hate Eli Manning even more so. Would have been nice to see a Pats/Niners superbowl though.

    I agree with the 34 - 31 final score with the Giants. Maybe because I'm biased, but I think our team has finally clicked, and I see ring number 4 in our future, as well as either Eli getting his second MVP, or Cruuuuuuz or JPP getting the honor. Those 3, in my humble opinion, have carried the Giants this season (with help from Nicks, Jacobs, Manningham, Ballard, and Tynes).

    The Giants win it! Patriots had me nervous once Brady was consistently moving the ball, but we got it together for the comeback. I'm still not sure what happened after the first quarter. The Giants started off strong, almost as if the game was going to be one-sided. Overall, it was a great game! Been a Giants fan since I was a kid, so that's who I was rooting for. Still, had a lot of respect for the Patriots, especially after they put the Broncos to shame a few weeks ago.

    How about that half-time show? That was absolutely dreadful! I'm pretty sure it's not 1984 anymore.

    Yeah that halftime show sucked as ussual lol.
    Actually I thought it was just a hair better than the black-eyed peas last year.
    2yrs ago it was The Who IIRC correctly, so at least there was some steel stringage.

    The game went just as I imagined it would minus a few points overall.
    I would've been happy for either team's victory because I like the way the Pats have developed into a smurfy white-boy team with the big bruising tight ends to compliment.

    GIANTS!!!!!!
    Giants are Super Bowl Champions, Eli got his second MVP, and I won 3 out of 4 rounds on a pool. Best. Night. Ever.

    It blows my mind that Eli has (and will likely retire with) more Super Bowl rings than Peyton.

    ^^ it was harsh, but i understand where he's coming from. can't have people intentionally hurting people, and coaches ignoring direct requests from the commish/lying through their teeth to him. He was asked to stop and didn't, Now there's all sorts of lawsuits just waiting to happen. I think football suspension may turn out be the least of some of these guys problems when its all said and done.

    It was also possibly one of worst times for the story to break. On one hand, there's the whole business with concussion awareness, where the risk of incidental concussions was troubling enough. Risk of intentionally-inflicted concussions just blows that away and unleashes hysteria... and Goodell never fails to strike when the emotional irons are hot.

    On the other hand, it hasn't gone unnoticed that tighter officiating on defenses have benefited offenses greatly. Players on defense complain, but guess what- this scandal isn't going to help their cause.
