Pittsburgh 17, Arizona 7 (H)
GRRRRR that INT by Warner. I would have loved to have seen a 14-10 Arizona lead at the half, but alas, that was not to be. Hopfully the Cardinals’ D can step it up a bit more and the offense can be more productive. Despite the fact that I was annoyed with the INT, what a great 100-yd TD return by James Harrison (the longest play in Super Bowl history to boot) – showing exactly why he was name the Defensive Player of the Year. Unfortunately, Al Michaels and John Madden will undoubtedly talk about that play ad nauseum throughout the rest of the game. Yay.
Speaking of defensive players, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s name has been called a lot; I’d like to see him get a big turnover in the second half. He’s had a great rookie season thus far.
The largest deficit ever overcome in a Super Bowl was 10 points. Hopefully the Cards won’t fall back any further and overcome their first half problems (including unnecessary penalties – a nearly constant thorn in Ken Whisenhunt’s side) and not lose the game on stupid mistakes.
Bruce Springsteen looks so old and sounds really horrible; however, it cold have been much, much worse -like the cast of “High School Musical” or Miley Cyrus.
