I just read this on ESPN:

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=bayless/060130


Anyone else feel that way? I said it before but this will probably be in the Top 5 Lowest rated Super Bowls of all time. Does Tivo allow you to record the commercials and not the program?

i definitely understand where this guy is commin from. I have no feelings for either team (im a bronco fan who lives in ny) but i am still interested in the game. It may also just be the feeling of the super bowl. The super bowl party and everything else that surrounds it. Not exactly 100% excitement for the game but still i want it. Maybe if i put $ on it (probably the steelers) itl make the game a bit more exciting

If it's not your favorite team in the big game, isn't it always like this? That's why the cliche "I watch it for the commercials" has become so commonplace.

Let's face it, we've read this article every time the SB is not played in a warm climate. It's just pissed off reporters having to go to Detroit in winter instead of Pasedena, Miami or NO.

Maybe the fact that this guy has been to 31 consecutive SB games has jaded him a little.

I can picture him telling his family: "Ugggh. I can't believe i have to go to another SuperBowl. What a pain in the ass" - It's only the biggest single day sporting event of the year buddy!

Anyway, I think it should be a good game. The old War Horse Steelers back for another shot at the title and the Moca Java Seashawks getting some desrved time in the sun (literally and figuratively). Me I hope the Seahawks win.

I think this year Detroit has been warmer than in Altanta. We have no snow. There is none predicted before the game. It's been in the 40's and 50's. Everyone in the city is pissed because there was supposed to be a big winter carnival downtown, but even the man-made snow won't stick around. If the superbowl sucks (which it probably will) it won't be because of the weather.

If your a Steeler fan you couldn't ask for any more. Bill Cower has took them to the playoffs 11 out of the 14 years that he has coahed and one super bowl already but has yet to win the big game. You've got one of the top five all time runningbacks playing in his first SB in his home town and Ben Roethlisberger could be the youngest QB in SB history to win it. Plus don't forget their the only 6th seed team to go this far. How could someone not pull for them is beyond me.

I'm A Georgia Bulldog fan so I'll be watching the former Bulldogs next Sunday, Hines being the most prominent.

Typically for myself I don't go to Super Bowl parties (because I actually want to be able to watch the game) and I don't turn the television on until about 30 minutes before the game (can't stand all the hype).

Usually the best are games are Championship Week, although this year that wasn't the case. So maybe the Super Bowl will be a competitive game this year.

It should have been an NFL dream with a team from each coast playing, therefore dragging everyone in between along. There hasn't been much chatter about the Seahawks all season (outside of Seatlle) and Pittsburgh is more fun to watch when they don't have the ball. But it is still the Super Bowl and I will be watching!
I don't know what the 1985 Patriots were seeded but the were a wildcard team and won 3 on the road to go to the Super Bowl.

They must have been a 5th seed because on NFL Today they said that New England was the only other wild card team to win three road games but Pittsburgh had been the only 6th seed team to do it.

Yeah I can understand wht people may not be interested..since "your team" or these two teams may not be considered "high profile" or whatever. This could be a hell of a football game this Sunday and far from a "bore" or it could be dull. I am gonna give it a chance.

Steelers football epitomizes the good things about the NFL - tradition, stability, heritage, hard nosed football played outside, (not in some sissy dome) and a roster of players who aren't show-boating hot dogs on the field and thugs off the field. Detroit is a great town - I've travelled there frequently. Who gives a sh_t if the game's not in a warm weather climate.

I definately do not agree. I think this might be the best "game" the super bowl has had in awhile. Both teams are evenlly matched an dplaying their best football so i anticipate a great game. You have Cowher and Holmgren, 2 very good coaches going at it. You have the leagues best running back in the big game and you have the Bus storyline. Big Ben is in his second yr. and if they win this game, his name goes to a much bigger level. There are storylines allover the place. Plus its the last football game of the yr. If you like football you will be intrigued for this game. And the last huge thing about this game is the fact the Steelers are in it. Let me mention something about this fan base. I have Gant season tickets and there are a few teams that come in there and bring the fans with them. I would say the Cowboys, Eagles Raiders and Steelers are the 4 biggest draws for out of town fans. Nothing has come close in the last 5 yrs or so to the Steeler fans. They almost matched us man for man last yr. My point is this team is righ in NFL history and the fan base is huge and detemrined. This game will be a very good Super Bowl.

This guy does seem p.o.'d about something.

'After three sensational weekends of playoffs, this is an anticlimax. Now we're paying the price for all those upsets.'

Three? Sensational? Weekends? How about ONE sensational GAME?

'The problem here is that, for the first time, the Super Bowl features two underdogs, two Cinderellas, two teams that came from nowhere on destiny-kissed rolls.'

The Steelers beat the two best teams in the conference and a bitter division rival, all on the road, and earned their way to Detroit. They also had the best record in all of football last year. Cinderella? I don't think so. Seattle had the best record in the NFC by two games and earned their way too. I guess anybody from the NFC would be Cinderella to this guy.

'This is a game without an established superstar -- unless you count Seattle left tackle Walter Jones, the lone cinch Hall of Famer. Pittsburgh's Jerome Bettis is not -- not after never leading his league in rushing and never having transcendent postseason impact. Bettis, a six-time Pro Bowl player, has been very good. Not great.'

Shaun Alexander IS a superstar...look at his career stats and averages...didn't he set an all-time NFL record for touchdowns THIS year?

The majority of this article is a joke. Skip Bayless...I hope you're a little more informed about golf than you are about football.

I think it'll be a pretty sweet game. I think the two week wait is what get's people down on the game - there just aren't enough stories or drama worth writing about.

As a Packer fan living in New York, I'm having a tough time deciding which team to root for. I'd like to see Holmgren get another one after how long he's been in Seattle, and Hasselback is fun to watch, but I've also always loved the Steelers. I'm mainly just looking forward to watching a good game, and enjoy an excuse to drink beer and cook up some nachos on a Sunday evening.

who knows-both teams seem to be playing great ball and deserve to be playing without question. Should be very competitive. Best game of year by far was SC-Texas-this will not top it.

Go Steelers!!!!

who ever wrote that article is full of $hit!,a bore?? lmao the Seahawks have been building up to this for the last 4 years cinderella team ??lol they beat everyone they had to beat they had the best record in football this year.who is wearing the glass slipper now gilligan... a very disiplined team and a very well coached team..i wish then good luck...

The Steelers come on give them their due they beat everyone they had to to get to the SB just cause your fav team lost to one of the two above teams does not mean you have to bash their party put on your big boy pants or big girl panty's and get used to it ...i wish them both the best and may the best team that day win...

Yes they were.Only 5 teams made the playoffs in each conference then.

I'll be rooting for my 900 #s

26-0 Pitt
26-21 Sea
27-23 Sea

and whatever other #s I get in other regular pools.
