Default How much credence do you give "fate"????

Just curious.....In 2005, I really felt in my heart it was fate that the Steelers won their
5th ring..... 6th seed.....Jerome's journey home...etc.
Guess what I am trying to say is that the "feel good"/"fate" type of stories seem to be on the cardinals side.....kinda bumming me out a little....ok, a lot.....
Thoughts?

Pfft... Tampa Bay Rays were also "feel good/fate" but they didn't do so well in the world series.

How is first team to Six Championships not a fate/feel good story. What makes this an even better story is the Rooney family and history being made (Again) by such a class organization.

I don't believe in Fate at all. I believe in doing your best and seeing where the chips fall.

This game is about beating the man in front of you. Nothing more, nothing less.

+ tax

'fate' never made a tackle, blocked a defender, or caught a pass

Winning number six for MYRON COPE would have me feeling pretty good. :)

I can see where that would concern you...there are a few similarities. But consider this:

The Cards aren't a wild card team like the '05 Steelers were...they won their division.
The Seahawks were riding a high as well...they were the "it" team, like the Cardinals seem to be right now, mostly because of their high-flying offense, which-let's face it-the media just eats up (see: Brady/Moss, Romo/Me-O,)

But it comes down to desire and preparation, and we won't know until Sunday who wanted it more and who was better prepared.

Great points and it definately helped.....Much to my dismay, I do tend to get caught up in the media BS..... especially now....but it's like a car wreck.....I don't wanna watch....but can't stop.....
