Faithful How, Pray Tell

Would the sportswriters who give Kurt Warner a pass to say, "I'm trying to represent Jesus" do the same if he said, "I'm trying to represent Reebok."?

February 4th Winner: skinsfan80

At the end of the day, it's hard to have a discussion about restricting one person's rights while not also asking yourself if you should stop talking because you're furthering your own agenda in the same breath.

Does it Matter?

Regardless of how people feel about religion entering certain non-secular spaces, they will continue to love chicken sandwiches, and of course, football.

On the 7th Day God?

If two men, equally devout, are on opposite teams, how does God decide who wins? And what does He say to the loser? Pray harder next time?

Top Commenter February 3rd: FISCHY

The Steelers are the gold standard for long-term success in the post-merger era. On the other hand, they were the worst franchise in the pre-merger era, with the same Rooney family in charge -- so, maybe it balances out.

Steelers Are Closest

A dynasty is perhaps unattainable but arguably the Steelers are as close to attaining that designation as any team in the NFL

The Rooney Blueprint Wins

In a league rife with copycats the Steelers have always followed their own blueprint. And it's built quite a trophy room.

Great Now, Not Always

The Steelers stunk for 40 years before Chuck Noll came on the scene.

Consistency Proves It

Given their ability to span the decades with greatness with so few real rough spots, I would have to give the Steelers the nod at this point.

Steelers in the Lead

The Steelers claimed their sixth Super Bowl title and officially stepped one inch ahead of the rest.

January 2nd Winner: BOBFBELL

There was so much Steelers holding whenever Big Ben evaded the Cardinal rush, the offensive line should have been arrested for mugging.

Great Ending Only

My personal favorite was Super 13. I watched the game on a big screen at the Gateway Tour Center in SW, with other fans, at a party hosted by WMAL's Ken Beatrice. One of his small "thank-yous" to all the people who listened and called into his show. I was 13. Life was good.

The Best of the Rest?

Best Ever? Five Seconds Short.

The end of the game was fantastic. But if we're talking about putting this game as the best Super Bowl ever, we deserved a better ending. We deserved a Hail Mary.
