Default Is two weeks too much?

When your team is not in the Super Bowl, it seems like the time between the Conference Championship games and the Super Bowl is about right. But is it just me that thinks that when your team is in it, this is an excruciatingly long time to wait two weeks for the game?

IMO, we've analyzed everything backwards and forwards and argued it out as much as possible. Just seems to me like this is the virtual equivalent of sitting around in a motel room with a condom on while your girlfriend finishes watching "Friends".

Let's get busy already!! Anybody else?

I think everytime there has only been a week the game has been very close but I could be wrong there. Anyway there are advantages either way, and yes this is excuriating but I think of it this way at least we are in!!!

I think it has its pros and cons. Thankfully the time between now and kickoff should go fast now.

Not at all, it gives teams a chance to relax for one week, and then travel to the Super Bowl site, and prepare for the game.

There might be some concern that a team on a roll might cool off, but I think the off week is a needed opportunity to recharge after the Steelers had been playing elimination games since mid-December.

I was just talking to my husband about this tonight...
he and I agree.. 2 weeks off doesn't feel right.

I would rather they HADN'T rested and gotten out ofthe MODE...
Hopefully it wont hinder the teams though.

I can wait the 2 weeks, I just hope it doesn't hurt us.

can you believe it's only 1 day - 19 hours and 21 minutes away?!?!?!

it's the superbowl, if they ain't in the right mode for this game, they shouldn't be playing in this league

The Super Bowl itself is a logistical nightmare...the extra week is really necessary for everyone to get their act together
