Super Bowl XLIII Preview

Super Bowl 43

I guess it’s bout that time to rap things up. We’ve hit the end of the football season and I must add that it’s not ending with my choice of game. Cards vs Steelers?….ehh. Steelers have the league’s top defense, but they are also pretty damn boring. The Cards have a crazy offense, but an inconsistent defense. In a regular season game I’d give this to the Steelers all day. Too bad this is THE game. Everything changes. For the Steelers to win, all they have to do is shut down the passing game. If they do that, game over. For the Cards to win, they’ll have to do two major things. 1) Get the passing game going. 2) Pressure Roethlisberger. Even though the Steelers play lockdown D, the first one should be easy. Fitzgerald has been making top defenses look nonexistant since college. With Boldin and Breaston to complement, Cards passing will thrive. Pressuring Roethlisberger will be a little bit tougher. Since Ward is hurt, the Cards will have an easier time in the secondary. Because of this, the Steelers O-Line will have to hold longer, but after a while they’re done. This will lead to sacks which will then lead to interceptions. I’m kind of reaching on this pick, but I’m picking the Cards. Why you ask? Well for one I hate the Steelers and they’re boring. To add on to that, I like underdogs. Hopefully we’ll get a good game like last year, but I doubt it. Cards win this one 33-20.
