They did it!!! I have to admit, I was literally on the edge of my seat for the final 8 minutes. I had a knot in my stomach the size of a softball and was wired tight. That was the most exciting end to a Super Bowl that I have ever seen.
To the BooBirds. Go ahead and cry. I know you will. It is what you do. No matter what happens, you will always try to belittle the best team in football. I am used to it. It is pathetic but it is what you do best, so enjoy it.
The simple fact of the matter is this:
- As great as Kurt Warner played this season, he was mediocre until the 4th quarter aginst the Steelers.
- In spite of the fact that Larry Fitzgerald has been amazing this post-season, he was nearly invisible in the entire first half. In fact, his first catch of the game didn't come until just 59 seconds remained in the first half and he didn't catch another pass until the 4th quarter.
- The "great" Cardinals offense only managed 7 points in the first 3 quarters.
What does all of this mean? Exactly what I said from early on...DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS. I don't care how great the Cards offense is, if they can't move the ball, they can't score points.
The Cards only ran the ball 12 times the entire game and Fitz was essentially shut-out until the 4th quarter. When you can't/don't run the ball and you don't get the ball to your #1 WR you better be prepared to lose.
Good win Steelers!!!!!!
Also, I want to issue a congrats to Mike Tomlin for winning NFL Coach of the Year. He took a good team that faced the toughest schedule in the NFL and led them to another division championship and another Super Bowl victory.
Way to go Mike!!!!!!!!
