Super Bowl Pick
Pittsburgh over Arizona

Defense wins Championships.  Arizona’s D has looked great during this postseason, but Pittsburgh has looked great all year.  They have played one of the toughest schedules in NFL history and have passed the majority of the tests.  Pittsburgh will take home another Super Bowl title. 

Pittsburgh:  24
Arizona:  20

Now that my head has spoken, I will mention that my heart is pulling for Arizona.

    Same feeling here… I think Pittsburgh’s defense gives them the edge, but my heart would love an Arizona win.

    I don’t think they will, but Warner has the ability to do so. He has a quick release and great weapons. They will need to blitz him. However, they must get to him AND hold their coverage so he doesn’t make them pay for blitzing. Should be a great game.

    I haven’t picked very well either in the playoffs, but I have picked Pittsburgh in every game though. The Cardinals are another story, so it wouldn’t be a shock to me to see them pull this game out.

    Nice analysis.

    If Pittsburgh wins I think it will be a rout, If Arizona wins it will be a high scoring game with Arizona outlasting the Steelers.,,Who am I picking? I will be posting it on my site and posting it here by Thursday. (Maybe Today) So stay tuned..Same Bat Time…Same Bat Channel!!

    Not sure Pitt will get in a high scoring affair. We’ll see on Sunday I guess. Looking forward to your pick.

    Well I have made and published my pick..I was 1-1 last week..I was 3-1 the week before and I did not publish picks on Wild Card weekend but I was 2-2..So I have been OK..
    I said it would either be 38-10 Steelers or a High Scoring game with the Cards winning.
    My Pick…Arizona Cardinals winning 38-30!!
