I am a Miami Dolphins fan first, Redskins fan second. I cheer the AFC over the NFC. So it is no big surprise I am going to root for the Colts today in the Super Bowl. But given the Colts’ role as spoiler forthe Dolphines when they were in the old AFC East I not really going to cry any tears if the Bears win. All I hope is the game stays interesting past the first quarter. We are hosting our first Super Bowl party in many years and I hope the game stays interesting for a little longer than usual.

    Is Rex Grossman too sorry for words. He was the best player on the field for Indy unfortunately he was suppose to be the QB for Chicago….fumbling, bumbling and throwing passes to the wrong team.

    If I owned the Bears, I would find a good replacement…..

    All in all, a mediocre super bowl.

    Definitely agree Jacqui, Grossman was just gross man! I can’t believe how bad he was. It was somewhat of a dissapointing game because it wasn’t closer. I had some higher hopes for Chicago. The Colts did earn it though, they made some great plays against a real tough defense. Congrats to the Colts for their win, they earned it!

    Hey, I thought it was a good super bowl, but then again I wanted the Colts to win. I live in Indiana.

    Grossman has been like that all season. Hot and cold.

    The fact that the Bears won all the playoffs was enough for me.

    Oh, well. Maybe next year.

    I hope they never again play the Super Bowl in a non-covered stadium. There’s just something terribly wrong about playing the Championship game in a pouring rain.

    Like Terrye, I also live in Indiana and was rooting for the Colts. If the game had been between the Bears and any other team, I’d have been rooting for the Bears.

    I wouldn’t be too harsh on Rex Grossman. He is a talented young man (only what — 26?) Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t this his first year as a starter? The Bears will be back. And I agree with Bikerken, the Colts earned this one. They had a good game plan, they executed it well, and, in the end, I think they just wanted it more than the Bears. Anyone who watched any of the Colts’ four losses at the end of the season, must certainly have thought that Dungy recruited a new defensive team for the play-offs.

    The Bears got a So-So Rex. The good was 20-28 passing and a TD. The bad was those two picks at the end.

    I think he got rattled by the early turnovers and losing Benson for the game. But it was the first full season he had been on the field.

    The defensive playcalling was passive – that’s the reason for the loss. ATTACKING the Saints worked wonders.

    The only other real dissapointment with the game was the rain. This was the first year since I bought my 50 inch plasma with HD that I got to watch the game on it. I piped the HD sound through my stereo and it was awesome! Most of the time the sound and visuals were stunning, the pre-game show and halftime show were really cool to watch on a big HD tv like that, but watching the game, most of the lenses had water drops on them all the time and it was fuzzy here and there. I agree with spook, if you’re gonna hold the game in an uncovered stadium, have it here in San Diego where it don’t rain anyway.

    By the way, the commercials were only so-so. Not very much imagination in most of them.

    I hear you! We had ‘advertised’ our HD DLP 106″ front projector system for the party, which was great most of the time. But man, when the lenses were fogged all the HD in the world wasn’t going to help! I actually liked the fact the rain made it all the harder to hold onto the ball and keep the game interesting. I was not going to shed a tear for either team so I simply wanted a good game.

    Yeah, oh well, all in all it was still a good time. The rain reminded me of a Stones concert I went to here in San Diego where it rained very light all night, it wasn’t cold at all and I was in row 14 center stage. It was one of the best concerts I ever saw.
