My 2 defining stats for the Super Bowl

Postby Azrael » Sat Feb 04, 2006 2:06 pm

Tired of hearing all the analytical drivvle and build up flying around the airwaves and tv shows? Can Hasselbeck handle the blitzes? Can the Steelers stand up to the best O-line in football (funny how that was KC until the Super Bowl)? How does the WCO matchup against the 3-4? Is Polamalu ok? What will Porter and Stevens say next?

I am. So I have just 2 simple stats for you as to why Pittsburgh should win.

1. Seahawks are 0-2 in road games against teams with winning records. The Steelers are 6-1 on the road against winning teams this year.

2. Steelers' opponents' combined regular season record was 164-140 (win pct 53.9%) while the Seahawks was 131-157 (win pct 45.8%).

That's all from me.

In 1 game especially the superbowl. You got to throw out all the stats and just let the 2 teams fight it out.

exactly

Anything can happen.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Good point Az. I agree.

Enough of all this. Stop getting all in the nitty gritty. Stick to the basics when braking down a game.


I think Pittsburgh is an easy winner simply because they are more physical then Seattle.

How about this stat:

Pittsburgh's home record against teams with winning records is 1-3. (lost to Cincinnati, Jacksonville, and New England; beat Chicago)

The opponents regular season record is actually 126-130 (.492) for the Steelers and 110-146 (.429) for the Seahawks. Your numbers included the playoffs.

How about this: The Team A vs. Team B vs. Team C theory doesn't work in the world of football, or in sports for that matter. Anything can happen tomorrow. No amount of anaylsis can predict tomorrow's outcome.

My prediction....forget stats, this is something you can bank on...


The winner of this year's superbowl will have a team name that starts with a "S".... ;-D

You can kind of throw that stat out the window because the Steelers aren't at home. I don't think any of these stats matter anyways in the Super Bowl.
