I only wished they played the last 5 minutes first so I didn't have to sit through the rest of the game! I'd also been mad if I was the one paying for those commercials....Super bowl commercials use to be Super....now they are alright at best IMO.

The 'Cardinals' were trapped in the 'Steel' cage for most of the game but they did manage to get out and 'fly' a few times late but in the end the 'Steel' cage closed in on them! ...Just think if the Cardinals played the Ravens.......that Super bowl would have been for the birds!!!!!!!

Anyone else feel like it was a forward pass and not a fumble?

And not to even take a look at it? Come on.....

All they have to do is throw it towards the end zone corner and let Fitz jump and catch it, and he will 80% of the time. The coaching staff should have come up with multiple variations of ways to free Fitz, because his was the only position where they had dominance. If you run deep crossing patterns with Fitz and Boldin, and send the other receivers short or medium, if Fitz is doubled, then someone is open.

Yes! It was totally a forward pass. My husband and I were 100% on that! His arm WAS FORWARD! Glad someone else is upset LOL

I didn't really care who won (I find myself always rooting for the team that's behind at any given time) but I would have loved it if the Cards had actually gotten to play their last play.

On paper it sounds nice and easy, the problem is the QB has to have time to go through his progressions and read the field to find that open man. Pittsburgh does a fantastic job of disguising thier coverage so that the QB cant make a great "pre-snap read". The pass rush was giving Warner little time to survey the field so he had to dump off to his check down or hot reciever.

If he catches it 80% of the time the other 20% could result in INT's.....

Did anyone else have their TWC HD box reset at about 7:15 last night? I had paused the start of the game to get our munchies ready and I lost lost like 20 minutes of recorded playback. I was not happy.

A great game to be sure. I am a Steelers fan, but also would have felt great for Arizona if they could have won.... given their history and Cinderella story.

But to have the game come down to a handful of key plays in the last minutes of the game, after a hard fought prior 3 quarters, makes for great football.

Both teams earned that game! Someone always has to win, which means someone has to "lose", but I think both teams were winners last night. Congratulations to both for a great Super Bowl, perhaps one of the best ever.

Last Card play was a fumble, ball come loose while armw as cocked back. Great comeback by the Cards, but the comeback king Big Ben did it once again! (just once I would like to win by 30 in the playoffs so I don't risk a heart attack lol)
