Honestly, the media has spent more time focusing on AZ as the "under dog" and getting "no respect" than they have on anything else. I don't buy into that at all. Both teams won their respective championships, and both teams deserve to be on the field next Sunday.

That and did you know that Wisenhunt coached for the Steelers at one point?

What do you expect them to do? They need compelling storylines to make up for the deficiency of Cardinals fans. Christ, the NFL had to extend the blackout deadline or the local fans wouldn't have even been able to watch the game on television!

So they have like 3 angles to work here, and they will work the Hell out of them. Gotta keep the ratings for the big game up!

As others have stated, the Steelers D has had to cover some pretty good receivers in both the regular season and the playoffs and have bascially silenced them. If one of our defenders doesn't get you, another one will.

Let Fitz, Boldon and Breaston have a few 5-10 yarders but don't give up the deep ball to give them momentum. Make Fitz hear those footsteps early and often and watch him turtle.

The NFL has to sell the game because the Cards are no "Ratings Cinderella". If our game plan goes well, expect underdog lovers and the half dozen true Card fans to be tuning out in the 3rd quarter. Of course, Steeler Nation will be glued to the TV during the ceremony and looking for interviews and highlights.

Steelers will likely play em like we play NE.....incorporate a similar scheme.........they made Cassel look absolutely mortal.....limited them to no points after the half.

I agree about early and often, but Fitz doesn't seem like the WR to turtle. Honestly, he seems like he was born to wear the B & G uni.

However, maybe we can get him 2nd guessing a few of those passes.

Wait until Ryan Clark starts a body count and the WRs will have no hands.

UMMMMMM........psst.........the Cards can throw on anybody when Warner gets time. The Steelers have to get in his face and hit him often.

Another winner... I think I've seen two members here now state this as the key, and both of you are spot on! If by chance Warner has time or is somehow making solid/correct pre-snap reads, he will find our WR's and they will do some damage...

But, if Kurt is being pressured, forced to hold onto the ball and scramble, well.... GAME OVER...
