Default Underdogs??

Well today is the big "prediction day" among many sportscasters, analysts, and other players from around the league and I've seen an enormous amount of them putting their faith in the Cardinals. Even the Sportsnation Poll on ESPN.com showed that America is calling a red-bird win. Could it be possible that the Steelers, a 7 point favorite, will go into the Super Bowl as the underdog??? Hell, I say bring it on! I LOVE watching people pick against us!

Nope. The Steelers will go into the game on Sunday as 6-7 point faves when all is said and done. Sure the polls are going to show a lot of fans leaning towards Cinderella. Hell - I would too if the Steelers weren't in the big game, as I always love to cheer for the underdog. In the long run, though - who really cares who they pick? It's going to come down to what our guys and theirs do on the field on Sunday evening.

More like 52% of Americans will go into the Super Bowk with their heads up their asses.

I guess we can SHOCK THE WORLD again then. At least shock the stupid people in the world. I hope they don't bet their mortgages on this game or a lot of Cards supporters will be living on the streets.

That's OK... the government will bail them out.

I think those morons need a new Magic 8-ball. They are actually predicting an upset using some convoluted logic. Lombardi would whack them in the skull with a clipboard.

Everyone is rooting for the Cardinals. Who cares. If the Steelers win, America will be sad.

The media is just trying to make things interesting. I've heard numerous "experts" talk about the Cards as if they were the second coming only to pick the Steelers when put on the spot. DON"T BUY INTO IT!!!

The Cards need a good game fron Warner to win. How many here think we need Ben to have a great day to win?
