Been saying all along 35-17 (Predictor IIRC says 41-14), and I'm sticking with that.

Won't get into all the stats, but I think Ben will be pretty careful with the ball.  Maybe one pick.  He should have a good day passing.  IMO, the Cards will sell out to stop the run, load the box and dare Ben to beat them.  He will.  Hines will be there for some key catches, but I expect a big day from 10, 83, and 85. 

Said before I think they test Sweed deep again, and I'll bet they do that early in the 3Q, TD Sweed.

Edge won't get much rushing, and the D will force Knurwin to fumble and throw some picks.  I can see the Cards getting out to an early lead, like SD, and then getting shut the fuck down until late.  7-0 Cards, 7-7, 10-7 Steelers, 17-7 Steelers, 17-10 Steelers at the half; 24-10 Steelers, 31-10 Steelers, 31-17 Steelers, 34-17 Steelers.  OK, that didn't come to 35, but that's just the sort of back and forth I see going.  One defensive TD, maybe to get us over 30. 

I think the first half is sort of tight, but by the end of the third we're partying.   But I'm keeping the defibrillators handy just in case.

I'd like to see Ben break Phil Simms record for the Super Bowl.  The target #'s are

Quote
He [Simms] completed 22 of 25 passes (with 2 of his 3 incompletions being drops by receivers) for 268 yards, setting Super Bowl records for consecutive completions (10), accuracy (88%), and passer rating (150.9).  In addition, he threw 3 touchdown passes and his passer rating set an NFL postseason record. "This might be the best game a quarterback has ever played," Giants coach Bill Parcells later said.

The more and more I hear about how great the Arizona offense is, the more and more I think this is going to be a one-sided asskicking. I'm thinking in the mold of the Bucs win over the Raiders years back. At least 1 defensive score. Early pressure/sacks from all angles and no looking back.  Steelers offense doesn't look great, but good enough to win, and no turnovers.

The Cards are a nice story and all, but in all honesty do not belong on the same field with the Steelers.

Final score 38-13. James Harrison MVP. 3 sacks, 2 ff and an int.

Okay, so I lied, one last post before I get on the bus:

Steelers win, 37-22

24-7 at half; 31-14 end 3rd; Cards put up a late TD and 2-pointer.

Let the praying begin!
