The Best One Ever? 02/02/2009

Some random thoughts after a big weekend.

Well, it was a great game.  One of the most exciting 4th quarters.  But, really, the best one ever?  Come on.  Granted, the majority of the first 42 Super Bowls were duds, so, yes, it is ine as one of the best.   It was also one of the most over officiated with over 160 yards in penalties, and more reviews than I can ever remember.  The 100 yard interception return to end the first half made most fans think the game was over. The shoot out at the end between Roethlisburger and Warner changed all that.  Great  4th quarter.  One of the 5 best. 

Kurt Warner has appeared in 3 Super Bowls, going 1-2.  He became the 2nd QB ever to take 2 different teams to the big game (Craig Morton, Dallas and Denver).  But he now has the 3 biggest days as a QB in the game!  Not bad for a former Arena and NFL Europe player.  (AND he has now outlived both of those leagues.)  I think he cemented his Canton Call.

Speaking of Canton, HOW can these pinheads NOT elect Shannon Sharpe?  Guess it is more impressive to be 0-4 in Super Bowls than to be 3-0.  And, the class was not even maxed out!  Shannon will get his due, but he should not have to wait.

And now that the NFL has close for the year, only 9 more days until pitchers and catchers report!
