Game Time


The picks are in as game time approaches. The Steelers are heavily favored by the media and Vegas is favoring Pittsburgh by four. But I say Seattle has been overlooked (East Coast bias) and Holmgren knows what it takes to win a Super Bowl. Who you got?

Dr. Z's pick: Steelers
Bill Simmon's pick: Steelers
Peter King's pick: Steelers
Don Banks' pick: Steelers
Len Pasquarelli's pick: Steelers
Mel Kiper Jr.'s pick: Steelers
Scott's pick: Steelers

My Pick: Seahawks

I'm not going to gloat since the Seahawks got screwed on more than one occasion last night. Ben was down before the ball crossed the endzone, that small push-off shouldn't have been PA and there was no holding on the recalled TD. It almost seemed like the refs wanted the Steelers to win.

All that said, I'm a petty, petty man and won't keep you any longer from the work you have to do.

The 'Hawks were robbed, plain and simple. As I watched the game I kept thinking that either someone paid off the refs, or these refs really DID need glasses, and to stay off the sauce for at least a few days.

scott, i owe you post and i'll get that to you ASAP. although don't expect a very gloating post since I also am a "petty, petty man".

I hate to say seattle was robbed simply because great teams win despite bad calls (much as Pittsburgh did against Indy a few weeks ago) but the score should have been much closer. I believe Seattle was one of the least penalized teams in the league, but they had 7 penalties for 70 yards last nite.

and doug, the answer (as david spade says) is always no
