This panel is all drinking the same Kool Aide! How can so many so-called experts be so wrong? Arizona? Are you all drunk? Where is this coming from? Pittsburgh is going to wipe the turf with them.

Good--I am glad the "experts" are picking the Cardinals. Pittsburgh plays at its best when underrated. Here we go Steelers!

Who's going to win? Who cares?

If Arizona wins the Super Bowl on Sunday nite, it will be because the Steelers played their absolute worst, dysfunctional and mistake ridden game of the year...and that is extremely unlikely to happen. These teams got here differently. One dominated its Division and had to bang hard on both playoff opponents for 4 quarters. The other has 7 losses and represents a very weak NFC Division. This game will mirror SB40 with Seattle. If Arizona gets tired early, the rout will be on. Everyone enjoy the game.

The Steelers have the most supperbowl wins . Arizona has a history of being a poor team withy poor ownership and management. It looks like the Steelers are in for a new Trophy to display in their stadium. Besides having the number one defense doesn't hurt. Never has hurt a team in the past for the most part.

The Steelers are the best team in football. But the Cardinals match up very well against what few weaknesses the Steelers have. The Steelers have always been vulnerable to the long ball down field, and the Cardinals do that really well. Blitzing is the strength of the Steelers defense and Kurt Warner can handle that pretty well. I expect the Steelers to play way back to prevent the long ball and dare Arizona to run. That would mean that short passes to the tight end and running backs should be open all day for the Cardinals. Roethlisberger is the best third down QB in football. It's hard to believe that Russ Grimm and Ken Whisenhunt don't know a few things about Big Ben's weaknesses. I predict a surprise upset by the Cards.

Arizona will win. Big Ben will stub his little toe and take himself out of the game.
He relishes injuries.

Cards are getting crushed. Warner may be in the hall of fame but this will be the last game of his career. Troy is going to pull his heart out of his ear hole

Best part about the Stupor Bowl is by 10PM on Sunday night we will finally get a break for a few months from ESPN and its Bromance with the NFL.

The NFL, 3 hours of excitement, 6 days of useless blabber!

I am a Eli Manning fan but in this Super Bowl I'll be rooting for Arizona. As I'm a Military Mom and know Pat will be cheering from heaven. He was murdered and Generals hide the truth but God knows all who were behind it. This is a game Pat would have been in if not for his standing up for the truth.

I almost feel un-American saying this, but I don't care who wins. The Super Bowl is the annual NFL championship. No bigger than the NBA championship, really (in fact, less, since it's based on one game). At least people don't usually call it a "world" championship.

Over-rated, under-talented, under-qualified token female sportscasters who never touched a football in their lives.

I'm with RANDOMOBSERVER, except for the small detail. A few bust-loose long balls and Arizona comes close. Close.

The thing about the Steelers that will pull them through is they don't wilt. If Sack-O-Burgers shows up instead of Big Ben, the defense will make up the difference, just like they did all season. And look for Willie Parker to bust a few himself today and that I think stands to improve Ben's passing performance too.

24-21 Steelers with two Fitzgerald TDs, at least one stunning one. Steeler TDs for Holmes, Miller, and Mwelde Moore, two INTs of Warner, at least one by Troy of course, and one Harrison strip to boot. Ben sacks held to one. Ben gets MVP redeeming his miserable performance in XL.

Take it to the bank! Ha ha ha!!
