A good part of AZ are players or coaching staff that was with pittsburgh 2,3,4 and so on years ago.
Don't get me wrong, I'm from pittsburgh and damnit I love em. Goin for the six pack
Hehe, this makes me laugh.
I love the talk about Ken Whisenhunt, and his coaching advantage. Don't get me wrong, when we had "The Wizz'' coaching for the Steelers, he def helped us by calling plays that won the Steelers a Superbowl in 2005. Do not forget though, it takes player execution to win Superbowls.
The Coaches can call all the trick plays, end arounds, bootlegs, and play actions they want, but it comes down to player execution. PERIOD.
The Cards look great. Great players, great offense, and great coaching. But can they execute, against the best defense in the NFL. Not AFC, not NFC, but the NFL. The Steelers will be handing a big plate of whoop ass to the Cards....see links
I feel like we have oil and water in this Superbowl my fellow Polycounters. The most hard ass Steelers defense in years, and the BEST Cardinals "everything".
This game is going to be great, I look forward with great anticipation. Come Superbowl Sunday, we will see who are men, and who are boys. (Not really, but this quote is from Rudy, I couldn't resist.)
I am done ranting...GO STEELERS!
