• Foolish Super Bowl Predictions: Super Bowl XLIII

    by  • February 1, 2009 • Culture • 4 Comments

    I’m not going to rub it in, but I’m pretty happy that my divisional championship predictions came true and put the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl. My all Cardinals and Steelers fantasy football team is set up to dominate in the Gridiron Challenge, and I’m counting for a big game out of Tim Hightower to carry me over the top.

    Maybe Larry Fitzgerald will leave a couple four or five yards out of the end zone for me.

    Now that we’re here at the big game, I’m taking the Cardinals for two reasons — Larry Fitzgerald and Kurt Warner. Much like last year’s Super Bowl came down to a last-minute play by Eli Manning, this game will probably come down to a final drive, and I have more faith that Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald will overcome the pressure.

    As long as the momentum rolling with the Arizona defense hasn’t cooled off in the two-week break prior to the Super Bowl, they should be able to slow down the Steelers and make them grind it out for points with Willie Parker and the run game.

    Now, I’m settling in to watch my prediction come to fruition. Enjoy the game, and feel free to drop some comments during the action. We’ll wrap up this season and the Super Bowl later this week as we begin the offseason.

      Too bad the Cards didn’t win. Now they need to make sure they can keep Boldin and Warner on the team.

        You’re right. Would have been nice to be right with my prediction.

        I’m sure the Cardinals have made retaining those two a priority this offseason, and from Warner’s talk thus far, it sounds like he’d be more likely to return if Boldin is still in an Arizona jersey. If they keep both and if there’s any truth to the rumor that they might get Mike Martz in as offensive coordinator, the Cardinals could have an even more fantasy-friendly offense next season. I only wish the league that I drafted Fitz in was a keeper league.
