Who do they have to have a week off between the Championship game and the Super Bowl? Every time that they do, the Super Bowl ends up being incredibly lopsided. And every time that they don't, it's a good game.

Well, I've got to throw my support behind the Steelers for this game. I've been a Steelers fan for as long as I've liked football (only about 10 years albeit) but I have a feeling this is the year for Betis. The way the Steelers have been able to adapt their game to the different teams is admirable. I think it should be a good game though, Hassleback is no doubt an amazing quarterback and more agile than Rothlesburger.

You've proved my point. I rest my case.

I'll be sitting reserve in DTW over Super Bowl Weekend, so I might drive down to Ford Field for all the prebowl stuff, if i'm not out on a trip. Anyone up for a mini meet in DTW that weekend?

IIRC, each of the Patriots last three SB wins included a two-week gap, and all of them were great games. They all came down to the final play/drive.

That's wierd, because if I remember correctly, they were all one-week gaps.

EDIT: Ok, I did some research into this:

Prior to 1999, they were all two-week gaps (as far back as 1994 - I didn't go further back than that).

1999: one week gap, 23-16 St. Louis beat Tennessee by barely stopping the Titans just one yard short of tying the game as time ran out.

2000: two week gap, Baltimore blows out the Giants 34-7.

2001: was supposed to be two weeks, but became a one week gap because of 9/11 pushing the whole season back one week, and Patriots won 20-17 over St. Louis on a last second field goal.

2002: one week gap, and Tampa Bay blew out Baltimore 48-21.

2003: two week gap, and New England beat Carolina 32-39 on a last second field goal.

2004: two week gap, and New England beat Philadelphia 24-21, stopping the Eagle's last ditch effort with an interception.

So I guess it doesn't make that much of a difference, though I do prefer having only one week off. The Super Bowl is hyped enough already, and that extra week brings the hype to an almost sickening level.
