Ben Roethlisberger’s Steelers faced off against Kurt Warner’s underdog Cardinals in a match up for the ages. This for me ranks as one of the very best Super Bowls, filled with interesting narratives, wonderful plays and a tremendous finish. This review will take a step back to February 1st 2009 and address what could have been for the plucky Cards.
2002 was a very different time in the National Football League. For the New England Patriots, Super Bowl XXXVI was where it all began. It was the start of the Brady/Belichick dynasty that we are constantly reminded of today, game after game. It was also the first Super Bowl after the events of 9/11 and featured a half time show from U2, whom many considered one the greatest of half time shows.
