Even had the X Clown play on Fitz's TD.

Not exactly the same game plan and MO, but similar paths.

They picked a good game to not kick the ball out of bounds on the kickoff

Yeah, it's exactly the same, really. No one thought they had a shot in the post-season, I even remember a good amount of analysts picking the Cowboys to come into our house and beat us in the first round. They peaked at the perfect time and got extremely hot in the post-season and defied all odds. Then they faced a heavily favored team in the SB and almost won but fell just short.

No the Cards actually had one of the best NFL QB's to play the game, no running game, and no defense. I can't even see how you can compare the two.

What pisses me off is that Al and John kept talking about what a great Superbowl this was...and it was...but I seem to remember something posted somewhere where our Superbowl was ranked one of the ten worst. Our Superbowl was just as good as this one.

In the regular season? Correct. However, they pulled a 06 Colts and turned on in the post-season. The running game wasn't huge tonight, but it did fairly well throughout the post-season, and as for the defense, they played lights out until that last drive.

Ten Worst? where have you seen that? I only see it in [B]top[/B] ten lists. Al and John still said it fell short of last year's superbowl.

Anyway, I would have to agree with Delhommey on the superbowl itself. Game started slow Arizona couldn't get anything going.. they started to get some things going in the second quarter. Nothing really happened in the third quarter and EVERYTHING blew open in the fourth. They put themselves in a position to win the game but the defense let up at a bad time to a team that already won the superbowl in years earlier. Like us, they lost to a team with a young quarterback who had already been there done that before. The rhythm and fire of the game on both sides was the same as our game.

Actually, Jake played like one of the best QBs in the league in our Superbowl. Obviously, it appears he regressed in the last couple years (especially this year). This was a great Superbowl, and yes, the Cardinals did look just like the 03 Panthers. And their season ended in a similar disappointing fashion. Good Superbowl, but I don't think it matches ours.

"uh, let's see, underdog team, game goes down to the wire and they just lose, and...DEJA VU!!!"

yeah i feel for the cards

but at least they showed pitt's defense wasn't historic and they did real good just to have a passing game with a decent defense.

rodgers-cromartie is gonna be a top 5 corner next year. his speed is incredible and he's instinctive

my nephew said "how do you throw almost 400 yrds, 3 tds and no ints and lose the super bowl"

my response, "ask jake"

that was a damn shame, cardinals had the game, but much like sb 38, too much time on the clock.

this game was a lot like our super bowl. except reed kicked it in bounds.
god i hate the steelers.

cardinal fans WILL talk about this game for years, much like we do. fondly remember what was, what could have been.

lose or win, warner should be in the hall of fame. if a win would have put him in, why would a loss keep him out? he performed brilliantly. much like delhomme, he would have been mvp.

refs were rather harsh on the cards too.

great game, bad result.

My Rams have been in three Super Bowls, and all three of them went deep into the fourth quarter before they were decided. I hate watching blowouts. Regardless of who you were pulling for last night, at the very least you had a reason to keep watching until the last play. I thought Fitzgerald was going to catch a Hail Mary there at the end. Was hoping they would review that fumble. If Tom Brady didn't fumble on that tuck play, then that was certainly no fumble.

The Super Bowl did remind me of 2003....a heavy underdog (and a team w/ no history) against one of the 'biggest' teams in the NFL...everyone thought it would be a blow out...but the underdogs made it a great game but both came up short.

Yeah the fact that they fell behind and came back but still lost is another similarity.

not only do they resemble each other those years, but they resemble each other as franchises. Inconsistent. All I'm asking is for us to make the playoffs 2 years in a row ... which isn't much to ask for

I'd have to see a link to believe anyone would be that dumb. I have heard us called one of the ten worst superbowl teams though.

Actually, our SB is generally ranked pretty high among the best games.

No history? Cardinals are the oldest team in the NFL. They never won a superbowl, but they have a few championships before the merger. They have a very long, albeit bleak, history.
