One for the Other Thumb


Kurt Warner seems like a nice guy, the Cardinals are a nice story and I recently had a very nice time in Arizona. Know what's not so nice? The Steelers' defense.

Offense is sexier and thus much of the talk these past couple of weeks has centered on offensive players, specifically Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin and, of course, Warner. That's a very talented triumvirate, but the single best unit on the field will be Pittsburgh's D, which just completed one of the greatest regular seasons in the history of football. And with all the talk about whether Warner deserves to be in the Hall of Fame or not, and how Fitzgerald appears to be on his way, you can take this to the bank: Troy Polamalu will have a bust in Canton. And defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau deserves one.

Says here that the Steelers will make Warner's life miserable (I know, not a very nice thing to do), paving the way for a 34-17 Pittsburgh win.
