Just for the hell of it i'm going with Arizona. Wisenhunt gets revenge.

Record for most trick plays attempted in a game.

Record for most trick plays attempted in a game.



The Arizona Cardinals’ head coach, who spent six seasons as a Pittsburgh Steelers assistant, will face his former team Feb. 1 in Super Bowl XLIII.
“Like everyone else, I was a little disappointed that we couldn’t get a Super Bowl matchup with any compelling storylines,” Whisenhunt jokingly said in a statement released by the Cardinals.
“But honestly, it’s unbelievably special that we’re going to the Super Bowl under any circumstances, but now to find out that we’ll be playing the Steelers certainly takes it to another level. Obviously, that organization and the people associated with it hold a special place in my heart. From that standpoint, this is something of a dream scenario for me and many of the other coaches on our staff. I’m happy for Mr. (Dan) Rooney, Coach (Mike) Tomlin and their entire organization. We’re looking forward to a great matchup in Tampa.”

I like the Steelers in this one. I think Vegas is starting to show the Cards some respect.

When they played Carolina they were 10pt underdogs. I noticed that the lines changed when they played Philly. Philly went from 7pt favorites down to 3. I think I'm seeing the same thing with this one. Any who, the Steelers will win by more than 7 in my opinion. The over under is interesting. I'm inclined to go over seeing that Warner is a different type of animal in the playoffs, but the Steelers defense is bananas. I'm going to go under though.

Arizona is a good team, we've all been fooled. Well, mostly the media and the fans of teams who have played them.

They took the last couple of games of the regular season off because they didn't HAVE to win them and their 9-7 record is tricky because they faced the NFC East and the AFC East. Meanwhile we were 12-4 and took on the NFC North and AFC West. :lol:

So yeah...they're actually GOOD. But...the Steelers are better. Arizona's fun ride ends at the final stop.

Destiny can't match that flying mane of hair known as Polamalu. It'll be a close game no doubt...but the BETTER team will win this year.

We would've been smoked by the Steelers, btw. Smoked.

Take the UNDER.

Giving these two teams two weeks to prep for the other team. Its all about defense. I'm not sayin it will bea 10-13 game but the first half will go something like 6-10. Then 2nd half is anybody's game, could get out of hand or it might stay its course. This is the reason I like the 3-4, you'll see its advantages over the 4-3 without a doubt this game.

The 6.5 line surprised me, I thought it would be closer to double digits.

I'll take the points if I was betting. Big Ben's LUCK is going to run out. Warner is not Flacco and Fitz is not Mason. The Steelers will pay big time if they try to bring the house against Warner. Pittsburg's Offense doesn't scare me at all and will struggle. Cards go up by 14 in the first half and never look back. JMO
