Tomorrow the Steelers will play the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII for a chance to win an unprecedented sixth Super Bowl title. We're sure you've heard all of the talk, from radio to TV to print and everything in between. Whether you want to take in as much as you possibly can or whether you try to avoid as much of it as possible, it doesn't matter. Nothing that any of these so-called experts can say or write will make a difference tomorrow.

The NFL Network sucked us in with their hours and hours of Super Bowl coverage. They've talked about anything and everything they could possibly think of. The Cardinals first trip to the Super Bowl and Kurt Warner. They all ooh and ahh at the story. Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm vs. Mike Tomlin. Hines Ward and his knee and how it'll affect the game. The Cardinals potent offense and the Steelers dominating defense. We could go on and on.

You can dissect the game as many times as you want, but you won't get an answer until the game is over. For us the game really comes down to the Cardinals offense against the Steelers defense. The Cardinals have a potent offense with three 1000 yard receivers, but they have yet to see a defense like the Steelers, the number one defense in the league. If the Steelers can shut down the Cardinals offense, we have no doubt they will win this game.

We could sit here and write on and on about the game but we really have nothing else to say. Lots of blogs have written some great articles and game previews, but if you haven't noticed, we're not big on previews. We don't even really like reading them and generally skip them. Call us weird if you want, but we'll be here with the recap. Let's just hope it's a recap of a win over a loss because it'll be a much better recap.

We have way too many links to post that you can go through and pick out the ones you want to read. We'll let you know which ones we think are must-reads with a *. These are in no particular order.
