Congrats to Mike Tomlin and the Steelers, Super Bowl Champs

Two years after being hired away from the Vikings, Mike Tomlin has led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Super Bowl title.  And what an amazing game it was…this is the second year in a row we’ve been treated to a twisty, turny, unbelievably thrilling championship tilt.  For a second, it looked like another man with Vikings connections, Larry Fitzgerald (he used to be our ball-boy, as we were reminded about four thousand times in the last two weeks) was going to be the hero:  Kurt Warner hit him over the middle and in a flash he was behind the defense, scoring what was at the time a late go-ahead touchdown for Arizona.  But Ben Roethlisberger put on his hero shoes and hooked-up with Santonio Holmes for a (very Cris Carter-like) tiptoe touchdown strike to win it.  The Steelers have now won six Super Bowls.  And the Vikings look like even bigger idiots for choosing Brad Childress over Tomlin.

    Even though I expecting the Steelers to win, but hoping for the Cards.  (Seeing as how they already have plenty of hardware in there trophy case)  Am I biased or were the officials calling the game for the Steelers?

    Should have kept Mike…. Should have kept him at head coach.

    I disagree that we should have kept Tomlin. Mike Tomlin did’nt build that Steeler team, it was already in place from Bill Cowher. Tomlin was just in the right place at the right time. One coach we should have kept though was Brian Billick. He built the best offensive team in Vikings history. Had they kept Brian, i swear the Minnesota Vikings would have at least 3 Superbowl rings . Instead we stuck with Dennis Green, one of the most overated head coaches ever. When you get crushed 40-0 in a playoff game to Kerry Collins and the New York Giants, that’s all on the coach, not to mention all those years he failed to get a talent-laiden Vikings team past the first-round of the playoffs.

    Well, they deserve props.  They pulled it off.  I wasn’t routing for them, but I was impressed.
