Super Bowl XLV- Showdown in Texas

Packers and Steelers Showdown in Texas

If the Steelers win the Super bowl on Sunday, will Ben Roethlisberger be considered among the great quarterbacks? Will he be in the same class as Peyton Manning or Tom Brady? It’s funny how we judge people.

In one breath we count how many Super bowl rings someone has and we say that makes them great. How many rings does Peyton have. Both Manning Brothers only have one ring each and yet, “Big Ben” with two rings and ton his way to a third is somehow not even in the same conversion.

It actually seems to me that if the Green Bay Packers win on Sunday, many people will call him great and will compare what he has done to what Bret Farve did. Life is funny and the standards by which we assign greatness seem to change depending on whether we like the person or not.

Look at Michael Vick. He was being touted as MVP and the same Eagles fans who wanted nothing to do with him in the beginning, soon forgot Donavon McNabb. The point is that whatever you do in life you just have to do your best and don’t worry about the rest.

Do not be discouraged when people don’t praise you and do not get too encouraged when they praise you. Just keep being the best you can be. If you do that you will maintain your happiness and your peace of mind. In my earlier post today I wrote that I liked how Ben handled the press conference. We all can learn from him. Are you ready for the showdown in Texas?

NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii Today

NFL Pro Bowl-The Prelude to the Super bowl

Hello World,

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday wherever you are in the world. If you were fortunate to take the trip to Hawaii or if you live there, then you are really lucky. The rest of us will have to watch the Pro Bowl game on the television.

The idea of the Pro Bowl should really be revisited.
I think it will be better if it is played after the Super bowl because it would just be the perfect relaxing exercise to help football fans deal with the off-season.

If you are a football fan, the Sunday after the Super bowl is one of the hardest to get through. Since the Super bowl takes us on such a high even if our team is not involved, we watch and then the next Sunday nothing.

Who is really interested in the Pro Bowl today? Let me hear your comments. Super bowl XLV? Can’t Wait!

Two To Texas – Super bowl XLV

Super bowl forty-five will kick off in exactly 11 days. Jets and Bears fans have been rescued from the fields of depression and are now on the bandwagon of either the Steelers or Packers bandwagon. The loss for New York and Chicago was great, but the teams who are heading to Dallas really played well.

So, who will win Super bowl XLV? I think the Steelers will go in as the favorites and will win. Packers will play them tough and it is going to be a great game. Starting next Monday I will begin a series of surface analysis of the both teams.

Congratulations Jets and Rex

Thanks Jets! Thanks Rex!

Congratulations to Rex Ryan, coach of the New York Jets. You made the Jets relevant in the NFL, New York and the world. To get back to the AFC Championship two years in a row is a great accomplishment. The Jets-Steelers had the highest rating in a decade and a half. Over 58 million people watch that game. Even though they did not make it to the Super bowl this year, it will happen next year. Thanks Rex, thanks Jets.
