    Gotta go with Pittsburgh. Too strong of a defense for the Cards to overcome plus their line will have to prevent Warner from getting touched for them to have a chance. I give them a lot of credit for what they did this year though. Incredible turnaround.

    I hate football. I normally only watch for the commercials and the halftime show. I won't be watching the halftime show this year, because I can't stand Bruce Springsteen :shudders at the mention of its name:

    Prediction-

    A team of mindless oafs will try to kill the other team of mindless oafs, so they can run across painted grass with a ball. Football = Barbaric. Football Players = Idiots

    Real football, on the other hand, is a game worth watching, and playing.

    So true!
    I too will be "there," but won't be watching.
    I'll watch like the last five minutes, I am mainly going to party to socialize and for food.

    well everybody is saying CARDINALS CARDINALS! im still putting my money on the steelers. they have a more steady rate than the cardinals. i feel that the steelers can keep up the pace slow and steady with out any problems.

    My guess is Cardinals > Steelers. I have to work so I will only be able to watch the second half.

    I hope it's the Cards, but I think they're a long shot.

    Cards

    Cardinals. I think Warner will light it up and Edge will have a pretty good game as well. And NO, I'll be watching the game, not the commercials, though some of them are pretty funny.

    If you want funny, though, watch the Office afterwards... Second funniest show on TV right now, right behind 30 Rock...

    Football is so much more than that. It's strategy, it's cunning, it's deception. So much of the game is just like a game of chess; tactical planning, positioning, and executing the perfect play.

    Football players have to be incredibly sharp when they're on the field, because not everything can go according to plan. It is really a game that requires everything of the players and coaches alike.

    My Predictions: Cardinals by 3.

    I had a dream two nights ago that the Bears won the Superbowl. Then the rest of my dream was just looped stock footage of bears.

    I want the Cardinals to win, but think the Steelers will crush them. It will be over by halftime.

    i think most undecided people with a heart (unless ur a predetermined steelers fan) are going for the Cards. back in the NFC championship, AZ was playing like champions in my opinion, and its a great story. they need to win a superbowl.

    I'm a White Sox fan and shall only watch to see the commercials. :D

    Actually, was hoping for the Packers, but since Favre left, there is no "oomph" in that team. :(

    When is the Superbowl? Is it this Sunday, or the next (Feb 8th)?


    I guess I'll cheer for the Cardinals because they're the underdogs, but in response to NFL being like chess, I don't think it's a good sport to compare to chess. Everybody wants to compare their team sport to chess because chess is supposed to be a thinking man's game, but there are far better examples of sports that are more strategic, and I think football/soccer is one of them.

    I think NFL is a bit like Rugby League in terms of the amount of strategy you need, and how well that works, but I enjoy RL a bit more due to the constant passing of the ball that players do before a hole opens up in the defence.

    I'll be honest, I haven't seen the playbooks for rugby or soccer, but I have for football. They are incredibly complex and cover virtually any potentiality.

    The reason I think football is more analogous to chess is because it is turn-based. Each side has a move and counter-move. In soccer the play is very rapid which lends itself to less net strategy on the part of coaches.

    Basketball is just like soccer in that regard; it's hard to take a moment to plan your next move when the ball is always (or nearly always) in play. In football, the clock stops frequently, and every player has their orders before the next down.
