I said last week that the closest the Iggles would get to the Superbowl was to play their last game of the season on the field where the Giants won the Superbowl last season. I was dead on!
Yeah, the score made it look close and maybe, just maybe, if the Iggles could have stayed in the game in the first two quarters it might have actually been a decent football game, but they didn't and it really wasn't that close a football game. Of course, I'm sure there are a few Cardinal fans that might disagree with my sentiments.
Man there were some really big hits in that game yesterday!
I think I'll really enjoy this Superbowl...not as much as I enjoyed last years, but it should still be fun. I like both teams. The Cardinals have been nothing but a joke in the NFL for a very long time. I was pretty upset back in the day when they took them out of the NFC East because it was pretty much two sure wins every season for MY Giants.
These are actually two of the oldest teams in the NFL. The Cardinals website says they've been in existence since 1898! And the Steelers site says they've been around a little less time, starting in 1933. These two teams are part of the original history of the NFL. According to the Cards site, they claim to be the oldest pro football team in the country and the Steelers claim fifth oldest. My Giants fall somewhere in the middle of that mess along with the Bears and Packers.
I think the Steelers need to slow down a bit though. This will be their 7th appearance in the Superbowl! So far they're 5-1 in Superbowls, losing only to the Cowgirls in Superbowl XXX. By contrast, the Cardinals have never even been to the Superbowl! They won a championship way back in 1947 or something like that, but they've rarely even made the playoffs in the modern football era. It's amazing what a new stadium can do for you!
I think that Fitzgerald guy would look pretty damned good in Giants blue!!! My team needs another tall receiver to take the place of the bonehead that needs weapons handling training. A lot of underclassmen receivers coming out in this draft...maybe they should look there...
Anyway, have a nice day!
