Post your Super Bowl XLIII predictions. Okay, the joke about the "team with more points win" is old and no longer funny or clever.

I am going with the upset

Arizona Cardinals 21

Pittsburgh "0bama - I have always been a fan of " Steelers 13

Again I say, there is no derangement syndrome in football. You mustn’t trash talk much if this kind of stuff bothers you.

What do you think? Troy, Hines or Ben for MVP? Maybe Santonio?

“GO PACKERS! (Runs and hides)”

My prediction:

1.) The Minnesota Vikings will not get a XLIII Super Bowl trophy to add to their EMPTY Super Bowl trophy case (Go Pack!).

2.) Game goes into overtime and is won by the winning teams defense in a dramatic finish.

Troy...has to be Troy. He has the re-make of the Coke commercial and he is a new daddy...

He has been interviewed on so many shows, and he is so soft spoken, sincere...I just feel its his year.

I need Sunday to forget about our peril....I want Warner to be magic, I know Pittsburgh to be better...I am happy there is an opposition in my heart even before the game starts... and hope by half time there is still drama.

Either way, I'll enjoy the hype, enjoy how many talk about how Warner cannot get into the Hall of Fame unless he wins this, enjoy the Terrible Towel crowd and the enjoy the dominance that the Steelers SHOULD have in this.

Take a break, fellow football loving FReepers, and enjoy a fun American event...no other country has American Football...This is ours alone. And for those that feel we have bigger problems to solve then waiting for Springsteen to suck, or whatever, relax for a few hours and realize that overpaid, over-hyped events like this are our rite. We earned it...I mean, Fu(k, we paid for it...enjoy it with chips and dips.

Besides, even we avid football fans will still be FReeping during the game, right?

When the Steelers are playing I’m hooked on them. Then I wonder what the Freepers are saying about the game. ;) And the dissing of BS should be good. And the whining of the Cardinals supporters should be...whiney and amusing.

I will proudly admit to being of deep Irish heritage...my last name IS Kelley...but I must also admit that my Irish Pennant moniker comes more from my Marine Corps heritage than my Irish background...

In the Corps, an Irish Pennant was a loose thread hanging from an article of your uniform...any Leatherneck going through an IG inspection (big inspection by head honcos) will tell you what a pain in the arse an Irish Pennant was...

Now to be incredibly boring, an Irish Pennant was actually an old naval term referring to a loose rigging line for the ships sails...blah blah blah...

SO....PIT(-7)vsARZ over/under 47

BRAIN SAYS
STILLERS 28
CARDS 17

HEART SAYS
STILLERS 24
CARDS 31 with Kurt Warner completing a perfectly designed flea-flicker to Larry Fitzgerald as the clock ticks to 0:00

Now as I’ve eried to dissect this thing for the last 11 days, it all comes back to several key situations:
-——How healthly is Hines gonna be?
-——Can Willie Parker continue his solid postseason?
-——Will the stellar Stiller D put Kurt Warner on his back all game long forcing him to rely on Edge James or can he make the adjustments and succeed with a short passing game?
-——Is Adrain Wilson up to the task of keeping Ward/Holmes in check?
-——Can Anquain Bolden contribute and put the blowup on the sidelines behind him and give Larry some needed help?

What will happen on Sunday?
——I won’t be watching Springsteen. I’ll watch Puppy Bowl 5 instead.
——When Keith opens his mouth and he says something about Obama, Tiki Barber sucker punches him on live TV.
——The commercials won’t be anything memorable.
——John Madden will say BOOM at least 10 times.
——No matter what Rush said, the camera will find him in attendance.

I still don’t know where my money is going towards. I may just bet the under and root like hell for Arizona to win.

10 sounds about right besides I think the TCBE’s on the steelers want to get the white house invite to see their little musslim boy hussein more than the card’s do.

At least one murder, 25 assault and batteries, and 500 emergency room visits due to physical injury, and 5 for alcohol poisoning, will result.

What a silly prediction. There will be alot more than five alcohol poisonings.

This is a tough one to predict for me .Defense wins Championships, the Steelers are the best this year and an all around solid team.If I was forced to put money down I would take the Steelers straight up—
I would take the Cards and the 7 points.
The Cardinals are an amazing story, especially the past month.We all watched them get destroyed 47-7 by the Patriots on December 21 and laughed that they were a playoff team.
They put it all together and are on a remarkable run—do they finish it off with the seemingly unthinkable Super Bowl win or go down in flames on Sunday?
The one thing that is going to be a big factor is that the Cardinals Head Coach was with the Steelers two years ago and has a real strong grasp on the Steelers style and play-calling, schemes, tricks, ect.. This may prove to be the difference—inside knowledge of the whole scheme and strategy,tendencies, audibles,formations,ect....
I would love to see the Cardinals finish the Cinderella story but deep down think the Steelers will win—
Well, I guess I need to make a pick, so here goes-—

Arizona 27
Pittsburgh 23
