Super Bowl XL

The Pittsburgh Steelers will face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL on 5 February 2006. I'll discuss that matchup when we get closer to kickoff. Today I'll tell you why it is those two teams in the big game.

There is a simple explanation for why those teams will be playing in the Super Bowl instead of the Broncos and Panthers. Turnovers. Both Denver and Carolina committed multiple turnovers. A team might overcome mistakes like that to win a regular season game. However, you don't throw three interceptions and win a playoff game. Denver's coach Mike Shanahan has all off season to think what went wrong, but it seemed to me that he abandoned the running game immediately after Pittsburgh got a 3 point lead. Carolina also had no running game, but for a different reason - injuries. Nick Goings was starting due to injuries to the Panthers first and second string running backs. Then, Goings suffered a concussion minutes into the game. If you can't run the ball you won't be able to throw the ball.
