    Dang, I turned the game on with 15 seconds left in the game and was sure there would be OT. Think the kicker will be riding the same bus home?

    The only thing that can explain that weird kick and some very questionable calls and penalties is that the game was fixed. Typical. :eek:

    They beat one today. The team that beat your Steelers twice this year.

    No they didn't. New England didn't beat anybody. Baltimore lost.

    The final score says otherwise...

    The final score confirms what I said, that Baltimore lost. Anyone with half a brain who watched the game saw the same thing, too. New England looked, at best, mediocre (fortunately for them, Baltimore looked worse). They're going to need to play better than that to win the Super Bowl.

    I'll agree with you on that last sentence. New England needs to play much better offensively to win in two weeks. I think there defense is much improved.

    Really great playoff results.

    Now most of the country will have all that free time by not watching a Superbowl with teams nobody outside the NorthEast cares about... cool.

    Two huge let down games. Nothing like a bad play to ruin a team's season.

    West of the Mississippi and south of Washington DC folks will be watching re-runs of Gilligan's Island instead - more interesting for sure. ;):D

    Winters,...
    Congratulations to the football "Gi'nts"!

    Not my kind of game tonight, and don't care for the result, but at least I have been rejuvenated as a fan of the Niners. Vindicated, also.

    Hope it's a shoot out next month....

    Great games today. Never been a Giants fan but was really rooting for Coughlin, Eli, and Cruz today. Now they just need to go beat the Pats. They have a real good shot.

    Super Bowl no longer a East vs West showdown. You can take away a viewer tally from those ratings.

    Oh? With one team representing the largest television market in the country, if not the world, you really think the ratings will be so bad? I'm willing to bet otherwise.

    Game Total Viewers
    Super Bowl XLV (Packers-Steelers), 2/6/11 162.9 million
    Super Bowl XLIV (Colts-Saints), 2/7/10 153.4 million
    Super Bowl XLIII (Cardinals-Steelers), 2/1/09 151.6 million
    Super Bowl XLII (Giants-Patriots), 2/3/08 148.3 million
    Super Bowl XXXVIII (Patriots-Panthers), 2/1/04 144.4 million


    Super Bowl XLII between the Patriots & Giants was at that time the most watched Super Bowl ever.
