Do They Stand a Chance?This blog may be a few days early, but I am looking ahead to the Super Bowl this Sunday. Over the last few days on sports radio, I've heard a lot of people give the Arizona Cardinals a lot of praise. Sure, they rank among the most unlikely Super Bowl teams. I even had them (if I entered a playoff pool this year) losing in the first round.
A few blogs back, I mentioned the NFC and AFC Championship Games tend to be more competitive than the actual Super Bowl. The game itself tends to get swallowed up in the pre-game hype, the commercials, and the halftime show. Of course, there are exceptions. Last year's match-up between the undefeated New England Patriots and the New York Giants was fantastic. Especially since the Giants handed the Patriots their only loss all season.
Personally, I think the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to walk away with this game. I never pick scores, but this one should be over by halftime. Perhaps the Cardinals will make a last minute drive, but the Steelers will take this game easily. As far as I'm concerned, start fitting them for their Super Bowl rings today.
Do you think the Cardinals stand a chance?
