Praising Arizona

Throw logic out the window on Sunday. I'm picking Arizona, and the reason is Larry Fitzgerald.

Kurt Can Do It

I don't know, who's going to win, but I'm pulling for the Cardinals because of Kurt, and I think it would be great for football to have a new team win.

St. Louis Symmetry

Steelers 27-17, but that might be my heart talking, not my head.

Cards Win in the Cards

My gut is with Maya Angelou and Phyllis Diller There's something about Arizona that seems impressive.

Cards in the Zone

The team's that hot at the end usually wins, and Arizona is hot now.

Cards Have the Edge

Arizona's offense is almost tailor-made to discombobulate that amazing Steelers defense.

I Hate the Cards, but I Like Them Sunday

I hate the football Cardinals but...

Hot? Cool It.

Yes, the Cardinals are hot. But how do you think the Steelers got here? Through a raffle?

Cardinal Virtues onto Victory

When it comes to knowing what's going to happen, no one knows anything.

Defense Beats Offense

The age-old adage is that "great defenses win championships," and in reality this is what will happen on Sunday.

Offense Wins a Championship This Time

The Cardinals have shaken off good defenses recently. Why not on Sunday?

One for the Other Thumb

Offense may be sexy, but defense will have Pittsburgh feeling six-y.

Red Herring

Let's keep this simple: Steelers 28, Cardinals 10.

They're Physical, Not Dirty

Above all, the Steelers want players who have a mean streak on the field.

By Doug Farrar | January 29, 2009; 9:29 AM ET | Comments (5)

Good, Clean Fun

Don't call the Steelers dirty simply because this current crop of players is advancing their hard-hitting legacy.

Winning Can Be Dirty

What's wrong with a team being dirty?

By Emil Steiner | January 29, 2009; 7:27 AM ET | Comments (10)

The Steel Makers

This whole notion that the Steelers play dirty is absurd.

Take Old Over Big

Ben's only job since coming into the league as been to not make mistakes. And frankly, he hasn't even been so great at that.

Warner, But D Will Win

I don't just want the guy who's been there before -- I want the guy who's been there before and done well.

Both Back for Seconds

Either the Cardinals' Kurt Warner or the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger will emerge as a two-time Super Bowl winner.

3rd Time's the Charm?

Ben Roethlisberger got carried to his Super Bowl off of Ken Whisenhunt's offensive schemes.

By Charles Mann | January 28, 2009; 7:25 AM ET | Comments (0)

Depends on Scheme

If you're in the Burgh you prefer Ben and if you're in the Valley you prefer Kurt.

Home-Field Would be Advantageous

The NFL is so successful now it can afford to do the right thing.

The Spectacle, Not the Game

That's why we'll remember more about Janet Jackson's performance in Super Bowl XXXVIII than we will Tom Brady's.

By Dan Levy | January 26, 2009; 12:45 PM ET | Comments (0)

Neutral Site Is Better

The Super Bowl is half football game, half entertainment spectacle. Such things go over much better in climates conducive to comfort.

Wideout Kobe?

Sure, Kobe Bryant dominates the NBA, but could the Los Angeles Laker make it as a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles? Vote Here.

Money and marketing are higher priorities to the NFL than home-field advantage.

January 25th Winner: rmagritte

I do not know a lot about PETA, but it seems the organization is one that requires occasional celebrity cases to promote its cause and to keep itself in the news.

Has the winningest quarterback in Eagles history thrown his last pass in Philadelphia? Vote here.
