    This Superbowl will be much better then SB39.... Patriots vs Eagles. WORST SUPERBOWL EVER. I had to root for the Pats...
    That was just funny for the Eagles because Roy Williams broke T.O's leg (birth of horsecollar tackle rule) and brought their offense down several notches going into the playoffs. T.O. still managed to put up some decent numbers in the Superbowl on one leg but obviously not enough of a scoring threat to win the game. haha!

    Amen on this. SB39 was the only super bowl I didn't want to watch. It wasn't unproven Brady trying to stake a claim in NFL history anymore, it was ******y ugg-wearing Brady, and we had to root for them because they were playing the absolute scum of the universe.

    By the same token, I don't feel any real negative emotions towards the niners or ravens. 2008 erased any lingering animosity over the lost super bowl (remember Jacobs trucking Lewis?), while last season did the same for the niners. It's a blank slate for the most part, and the 2000 and 2002 teams are almost entirely different.

    For me, this SB is a war of ideologies: the stationary pocket passer vs the mobile option QB/running game combo. Flacco is starting to become an Eli clone, in his demeanor and how he approaches the game. Ray Lewis, while he has a checkered-to-dark past to say the least, is trying to go out in Strahan-like fashion. Ray Rice reminds me of rookie Bradshaw a little too... lots of fire and youth there. Honestly, at this point, i'm going to have to root for the Ravens.

    Hmm, that Bradshaw comparison is a bit of an insult to Rice. They're both the same age, too.


    I like Flacco so I'll root for the Ravens. Don't really care about Lewis.

    Hopefully it's tough-going for the Niners, if only to see more of Jim Harbaugh's over-the-top, sideline histronics.

    I was speaking more about character than playing ability. Obviously given the choice I'd go with Ray Rice 11 times out of 10. Rice is still hungry for that ring, and is still willing to fight for it. Bradshaw has that fight in spurts still, but he has 2 rings now... you don't see him giving 110% all the time anymore.

    Ah, right. Yeah I can see where you're coming from.
