    JensenS - the fact that you heart both Harrison and Holmes makes me laugh just a little.

    The Steelers had a great game, I never counted them out even just for a second. Harrison's 100 yd interception/touchdown was nothing short of amazing. First of all that is a long way to run for a big guy, but he did it. I met him and a few other of the defensive guys a few years ago, they were a riot.

    The first franchise to now hold 6 Super Bowl Championships, so I guess that means we really are #1.
    Champions are made while no one is watching.

    I'm being exxageratedly (not really a word, I don't think) serious. IMO, Roethlisberger is overrated, was terrible for most of the game yesterday, and has been carried to his two Super Bowl wins by badass defenses. And I thought the refereeing yesterday was terrible.

    So does Warner get the same choke label Mcnabb got two weeks ago? Both put their team ahead with fourth quarter drives but in the end their defense let them down. Of course they each got the ball back but could not retake the lead.

    Different situations between the two QB's. And saying they each got the ball back is kind of ignoring the fact that Warner got the ball back with 30 seconds and 75ish yards to go, but McNabb got the ball back with 2:53 and about the same yardage. COmpletely different situations.

    Amusing that you are trying to make this about the Eagles somehow. That's like me posting that the Giants were 2-0 (on the road) against this year's Super Bowl participants.

    Warner also had Fitzgerald and Bolden while Mcnabb had Larry, Curley and Moe. Mcnabbs second rate receiver dropped the pass on fourth down ending the game.

    I believe during our Brady being clutch argument you brought up his inability to lead his team down the field against the colts a few years back. I believe there was like 20 seconds left when they got the ball. Even Brady the most clutch player in the game today could not thrive under those circumstances.

    I just want some consistency on the choke and clutch labels.

    Of course I brought up the Eagles. I managed to avoid sportscenter the last two weeks. I could not get into the game last night, until I finally got sucked in for the final three minutes. Maybe next year will be the birds year!!

    Playing the safeties deep took Polumolu out of the game. I thought that was a big mistake by P'burg. In the end, Fitzgerald got his due anyway.

    To many Cards just stood and watched the Int return. If anymore had been in pursuit, he never would have made to the end zone. What an impact that play had on the final outcome.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    1. I never said Brady wasn't clutch, I said his clutchness was overrated. Everyone knows that end of the game especially, it's easy to move between the 20's, because players are looking to stop the big play. It's unfortunate, but the truth. He moved his team into FG range, and Vinatieri did the REAL clutch work.

    2. In the referenced game, he got the ball back with a minute left, not 30 seconds, and then he threw a terrible pass and got intercepted.

    3. My labels are very consistent, you just don't agree with my opinion...but seriously, let me ask you, were you stunned that the final play of Arizona's drive wasn't even reviewed? Because that looked to me like an incomplete pass.
