I would say it is well deserved respect too. Their gameplan against Indy was beautiful. ;-D

I agree but I have never been on the Indy bandwagon. Their offense is great but their D was severely overrated.

I also agree that the respect against the Steelers is deserved. I think that the Pats' D will show that the QB really is a rookie. They can't just pound it up the middle every play like they did against the Jets. Good linebackers like Bruschi and McGinest will close those holes up fast and Ben will have to air it out sometimes.

The few mistakes that the Steelers offense makes will decide this game. The weather and the homefield advantage will be negligible against this veteran team from New England.

I don't know about you guys but my MVP this year is Troy Brown. He has gone from a 100 catch 1,000 yard receiver to shutdown cornerback (ok, maybe not shutdown but he has certainly not embarrased himself). Most Valuable to his team that's for sure.

I am looking forward to the Rodney Harrison/Hines Ward matchup. That will be special. Trouble is that Harrison will get help and will win this battle.

I will take NE and give up the 3 points.

2 great teams, 2 great coaches, this is the Superbowl for me.

Good points Mook ... but you also have to figure the Pittsburg D into the equation. There will be some hittin goin on BIGTIME out there Sunday.
Add it all up and I'm liking the UNDER Sunday ... ;-D

I did not overlook them but I guess that I should give them their due as well. The Steelers D is awesome. Given the injuries in the NE secondary I can probably say that man for man they are more talented than the Pats D.

However, the NE offense is better than the Pitt offense in every single skill position QB, WR (NE has them on depth), RB and TE. Pitt has a better O-line but I am betting on the NE linebackers to stop the running game and Ben to make some mistakes in the passing game.

I also have the sense that the Pats work more as a unit and have better coaching. The Steelers weapons are pretty clear: pound it up the middle with Bettis, quick outs to Ward and the occasional bomb to Plax or Randel El. The passing game was pretty much abandoned against the Jets though and Ben was shaky. It is much harder to plan a scheme to stop the Pats who have too many weapons working too well right now IMO.

The under is tempting but there may be some defensive scoring and the Pats offense is a machine and will almost certainly get 20+ points.

Still liking the Pats -3.

NEP -3 is my lock. (putting about 5 units on this one)

I also like the Under on the NEP/Pitts game (2 units), and I like Philly -5 (2 units) a lot.

I'm tempted to put a unit on the Over on the Philly/Atl game.. but I haven't placed a single bet on Atlanta scoring points this year, and I'm not sure if I want to start now.

Well, since I'm going away for the weekend I have to make my lock now.

Like CC, I'm liking the over of 40.5 on Philly-Atlanta.
