I think that if Seattle and Pittsburgh played 10 times on a neutral field, I highly doubt it would be more than 6-4 either way...and I wouldn't be surprised if it was split down the middle.

I think Seattle was a more consistent team for the whole year, but Pittsburgh had it rolling towards the end...and that's when it matters most.

8-2 or 7-3. The Steelers had their C- game and the Seahawks had their C+ game, roughly.

The latest poll on ESPN:

"affected the outcome" does not mean "the Seahawks would have won." The outcome is the score, too.

Somehow, I doubt the 62% of 80,000+ votes all came from Seattle.

Agreed.

The whole world saw a poorly officated game yesterday and the Seahawks can at least hold their heads high knowing that they were,

No they weren't. They lost. And if you

really want to get into officiating errors, how about : 1. The block in the back on Ben during the INT return - no call? 2. Stevens catches the ball, takes 3-4 steps, is hit, FUMBLEs, ruled incomplete? 3. Several times, Hasselbeck threw the ball away while standing in the pocket to avoid the sack. No calls? 4. Helmet to helmet on Ward, out of bounds, no call? In the end, Aaron, there's one call - the Hasselbeck personal foul - that wasn't called correctly. And even that call, BY RULE, was called correctly. It was called against the Steelers (@ Indy, vs. Cinci in back-to-back weeks) twice this year. So, even that call, BY RULE, was called correctly. 62% of fans need to look at tape and stop trying to blame a poor performance (by both teams) on the refs.
Congrats on the title. I don't remember when the last one was, but I'm guessing this is the first you've been old enough to enjoy. I hope one day I'll be able to do the same. If it was anything like what I felt when the Razorbacks won a college basketball National Championship, nothing will be able to bring you down.

1979. And they should have won XXX, too, were it not for Bilbo Cowher. Frickin' Erric Pegram, bah. Anyway...

As I said on my blog, I'm oddly dissatisfied. It was a sloppy game on both sides of the football. Neither team played anywhere near as well as they should have. Dropped passes on both sides of the ball, horrid time management from the Seahawks, not the best QBing or running, bland defense...

FWIW, I wrote another post on my blog about the Super Bowl today. You can read it here .

Executive summary: this was a disappointing Super Bowl because both teams played like crap. But the Steelers made the big plays and the Seahawks did not.

And the officials called a good game. The NFL says so, the rule book says so, and my TiVo says so. I challenge anyone here to find ANY call that went against the Seahawks unfairly. I've watched them enough and read the rules enough to be able to rebuff anything.

It's sad that Holmgren couldn't be a man and admit that he and his team didn't play well. Instead, he's turned himself a lame whiny bitch by blaming the refs. How sad.

Part of complaining about calls is nothing more than being a fan. If you are emotionally invested as fans and Holmgren are, you're going to be ticked with calls. The thing is: I'm more ticked about Seattle's lack on excecution and stupid mistakes than I am about the refs. If you make stupid mistakes through poor excecution you're going to lose. That pretty much sums up Seattle's play.

The loss doesn't dampen my spirits though. Seattle is a great team with outstanding individuals and good team chemistry. The Steelers won it and I want another piece of them. This could become a great modern rivalry.

Both the Seahawks and the Steelers played poorly. I hope people can focus on the stuff that matters: great players facing off on footballs greatest stage. Rothlisburger, Bettis, Alexander, Hasslebeck and a bunch of others are great players. I'm looking forward to 2006-2007. I want the Hawks back in there. I want them to build on this loss and the fact that they've been to the big game now.

The Steelers won. Seahawks fans should appreciate what we have (a Super Bowl appearance and a great team) and look forward to a great season next year. We need to re-sign Alexander, continue to run over the top of that sissy division we're in, and win the Super Bowl next year. Its an achievable goal.

Which is more than Browns fans can say, right Dave?

P.S. Yeah, I pretty much think the whining should stop. Being a sportsman means you forget the refs and let your game speak for itself. Seattle lost and should move on. Win it next time. Congratulate the winners and hold your head high.

BTW, I think its some fans and sports writers that are causing all the fuss, not Seattle's players themselves. They've accepted the loss and are moving on. So have I.

Well you've got us there for sure. Can't argue that point. Sure will be fun beating the super bowl champs next year though. Ha ha we can all dream can't we. Should be some great divison play next year with the steelers. The target is hung and now the contenders want a shot at it. I think the steelers will have to watch out for the bungles next year. They will surely be looking for some revenge.

I'm not worried about the Bungles. Or the Browns. Though just the other day, a Browns fan told me they go to two Super Bowls every year - each time they play the Steelers.
