Super Bowl XLII Notebook: Noll's record in danger Sunday
Friday, February 01, 2008
By Gene Collier, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
PHOENIX -- Steelers Hall of Famer Chuck Noll might lose his exclusive standing as the only coach with a 4-0 record in the Super Bowl, as New England's Bill Belichick is 3-0 and heavily favored Sunday to dispatch the Giants.

Several other Steeler Super Bowl records, however, are perfectly safe.

Such as:

? Franco Harris' 101 rushing career rushing attempts, 31 more than Dallas' Emmitt Smith. Neither is expected to play.

? Terry Bradshaw's record for highest average gain per pass attempt, 11.1 yards. Bart Starr is second at 9.6. If you're wondering, Tom Brady's average gain per pass play in the Super Bowl is 4.1

? The Steelers' 57 rushing attempts against Minnesota in Super Bowl IX. There have been six games in which both teams had fewer rushing attempts.

? John Stallworth's career record for high average gain per Super Bowl catch, 24.4 yards.

? Stallworth's record for highest average gain per catch in one game (40.33 yards vs. the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl XIV) and Lynn Swann's second-place figure (40.25 yards vs. Dallas in Super Bowl X) might seem perfectly safe, but Randy Moss could catch three 50-yarders against a patchwork New York Giants secondary.

Noll has 4 in 6.

Belichick MIGHT have 4 in 7.

And Chuck's record of not having to cheat to get to the Superbowl should be just fine to!

The line isn't even moving that much...I'm definitely liking the Giants against the spread, and maybe even just straight up. Why not? The Patriots are evil, and the bad guys are always supposed to lose, right?

Noll's record might be tied but I don't think it will be surpassed, at least not by Bellicheat. I really think he'll be quietly forced to resign or suspended indefinitely by the league in the aftermath of "WalkthroughGate". :wave:
