Default Biggest Mythconceptions Going into the Game

no, i dont have a lithp... or an litp... or a lisp.

but here are 2 myths/misconceptions that need to be put to rest-

cardinals are the hottest team in the nfl.- so they won 3 playoff games in a row. big whoop. they mailed it in as soon as they clinched the division.

the steelers, on the other hand, have won 8 of their last 9 games. all but the browns have been against playoff calibur teams. on paper, the cardinals will be one of our easiest opponents in weeks

steelers havent faced a wr corps like the cardinals- in 2004 wayne, harrison, stokley not only each had a 1000 yds, but 10+ td's apiece. the next year we faced them twice and shut down the passing game in the playoffs, holding each receiver w/o a td and under 100 yds. this group also had dallas clark and a younger e. james.

this cardinals offense isnt as good, and this steelers defense is better. (quick- name our 3rd and 4th cb's from that squad).

feel free to list other myths going into this game.

Kurt Warner is a machine that can't be rattled. His kept his head on straight against Philly and just threw it quick. I seem to remember a bumbling dick fumbling on every other play because he was getting beaten time after time not all that long ago. And this just in, let's see Fitzgerald or Boldin go across the middle and get bleedin' smeared by Mr. Harrison coming the opposite way. I tend to think our linebackers play just a touch better than the Feebles 'backers do.

How about Kurt Warner all of a sudden being the greatest QB to ever don pads and a helmet and Fitz being approximately 12 feet tall, bionic, and made of Kryptonite, for starters?

One that's kinda driven me nuts is all the "experts" talking about how big Kurt Warner's ability to make plays in the face of a blitz is going to be. Don't the "experts" realize that this Steeler team has blitzed far less than in years past?

The big difference this season from a defensive standpoint has been the fact that the Steelers have both Woodley & Harrison starting on the outside & they've just been winning their matchups. When you think about it Woodley's contribution to this defense can't be praised enough. He's unquestionably made Harrison a better player & the two have wreaked havoc without Lebeau having to rush 6 on a consistent basis. And their dominace has had a direct effect in how well the secondary (& their #1 pass defense as a whole) has played all season.

I love Woodley.

i was going to say the same exact thing. it's like, yeah...we made it to 2 Super Bowls. won 1 and lost 1. now is his chance for redemption. WOW...breaking news...Kurt Warner is a QB still and he's a back up to a kitty cat.

also, the whole notion that the Arizona Cardinals are the "Cinderella Team" this year. WHO CARES!? they made it in and won out...guess what, the Steelers did it too. as a 6th seed and won their 5th title. it's NEVER been done before.

so, Cardinals fans, don't act like you are the coolest thing since pants with pockets, becase guess what...my pants don't have pockets and they are much cooler than you.

I think the "Wisenhunt knows Lebeau and that will have a big effect on the outcome" is a Myth. IMO, every team in the NFL knows and understands the zone blitz scenario and how to beat it (no pressure, no work). Its the players excution that makes the system work. Lebeau preps them, calls the D, and draws up the blitzes but, its the players athletic ability that makes it work. 90% of Lebeau's work is done before Sunday, it started when the players were drafted. There is a reason we picked Troy, Woodley, Timmons etc... they have great athletic ability that fits the scheme. Then there's the weeks and weeks of coaching the execution of the schemes. All that leads to Sunday when Lebeau unleashes the hounds.

Sure Wisenhut may get lucky and call the perfect play against a particular set once or twice, alot of teams have. Lebeau's tendencies are studied by every team, and you can bet any team would have a couple of stats guys doing probabilities for all situations going into the Bowl. It doesn't make Wisenhunt special.

Bottom line is this system is perfect for this group of athletes. Their talent is what makes it work, and is what makes them #1.

The biggest myth is that the cards are the best team in the NFC. The best 9-7 team ever.

They are the best team in the NFC. Warner never turned the ball over 6 times in a playoff game. They shut down the #1 rushing offense in the league & beat the Eagles straight-up. To say they're not the best team in the conference, or worse yet, not deserving to be in the Super Bowl is incredibly dumb.

With that said, F the Cardinals. I'm looking for Clark to deliver a hammer blow on Fitzgerald at some point during the game.

I've been watching the complete history of the Pittsburgh Steelers (including all supplementals) like my life depended on it. I'm getting primed

How about the Steelers won't be able to touch Warner because he has such a quick release and knows how to read blitzes and where everybody is coming from. Not that it matters though because on Sunday night these myths get squashed like little bugs by the best NFL defense in 2008.
