Default Blame Game: who do you blame for SB XXX?

--The Cards blame the ref's and the no-replay for the Steelers winning Super Bowl XLIII.

--The Seahawks are STILL crying about them not being able to beat the 12th man (the ref's).

--LA fans say Ferragamo cost the Rams a SB victory.

--The 70's Cowboys blame their guy Jackie Smith for dropping a TD during their SB 13 loss to Pittsburgh. And naturally, they blame the ref's too.

--Now Fran Tark is blaming steroids for Super Bowl 9.


Who do you blame for Super Bowl XXX? Neil and his two INT's? Heck, after that game I would have bet a millions dollars that O'Donnell was paid off for those two bizzare throws.


WHY CAN'T A TEAM JUST LOSE???????????????? Everyone has to cry and complain about something.

If I was a Steelers Fan, I'd blame this man.

One has to remember that the Cowboys at that time had probably one of the greatest Corners of all time suiting up for them. So from the sound of it O'Donnell sounded like he had the right idea. Throw it away from Deion or risk a pick 6. Problem is, Larry Brown had a "Once-in-a-lifetime" type of game with the Cowboys, which just happened to be on the World's Biggest Stage.

Both of those passes were so bad they make me wonder if there was a miscommunication between O'donnell and ????. I want to say it was Holiday, but that doesn't seem right.

As far as I am concerned, Neil O'Donnell made the most costly mistakes. But if you can't overcome them, odds are pretty good you don't deserve to win.

There's really only one thing to blame the loss on, being on the wrong side of the scoreboard.

Default Re: Blame Game: who do you blame for SB XXX?

Everyone is so quick to blame N.O for the loss of XXX, but what people do not realize is that even though the first pick was a bad one, the 2nd one was a mis-communication between Quarterback and receiver, and I feel it was the receivers fault.

Courtney Holliday, who was a ROOKIE at the time and only played a few snaps in the regular season, was the hot route on that play. N.O should of known the personal on the field and checked down to Holliday where he was supposed to run a different route.

O'Donnell threw the check down route, and Holliday (a rookie mind you) ran the same pattern, and that is a recipe for disaster. To this day O'Donnell blames himself when really it was Chan Gaily and Cowher's coordinators for putting Holliday on the field as the hot route. No excuse for that.
