I hate to take time away from the movie characters list but there is one of the least important days of football coming up tomorrow. What is so great about a day of football with only ONE game on. You wanna know the best day of football? This year it was Sunday September 21st. During week 3 there were 15 National Football League games on Sunday. Yes Week 17 had all 16 but so many of them meant nothing.
Let's take a quick look at some of the highlights from fabulous Week 3. The Cards and Steelers both lost. Arizona lost to the Redskins 24-17 with The Edge posting 93 yards on 18 carries. Pittsburgh fell to the Eagles 15-6 with Big Ben putting up 131 yards, no tds, a ceptor and got injured. Teams of the blog, Colts and Raids, both lost in nail biters, but the Dolphins put the smack down on that team that plays in Massachusetts 38-13, with Ronnie Brown going for 800 yards and 12 touchdowns.
As for tomorrow, sure about half of the people out there are saying the 7 point favorite Steelers are going to win, but the other half are saying the Cards will win. It is my thought that the public is finally ready to jump on this Cardinal bandwagon and that mean the wheels are ready to come off. 53% on ESPN Sportsnation are picking the Cardinals to win outright. If that doesn't spell a Steelers blow out, I don't know what does. Doesn't it make sense that the Cards were running on a lot of energy the past three weeks and this two week break has slowed them down? Lost a little bit of their rhythm? The Steelers on the other hand don't play on rhythm. They're frantic and are just flat out good.
That's why my pick for the Super Bowl is Steelers 30, Cardinals 14.
Be sure to listen to me when I give out football advice because I play football in my front yard with my brothers at least three times a year.
In other bowl news, The Boss bowled a 298 in Wii Sports the other day. What a ridiculous addict he is.
