I believe it was Carolina ('96 season/'97 playoffs). The Panthers, who were an expansion team the season before.

I would like to see two teams in the Super Bowl that have never won a Super Bowl. Go Chargers! Second I hope its not some lopsided game either. How about some overtime?

As long as it's not San Diego (no offense), Dallas or New England, I don't really care who wins. They're all huge bandwagon teams that I'm tired of hearing about.

But overtime is horrible, or at least the sudden death part. They should just have a 15 minute quarter and whoever is leading at the end of that wins. Not this kick-a-FG-and-automatically-win crap. I've never liked that.

I TOTALLY agree. I think it's BS to have a back and forth game and then POOF.... you win the coin toss and all you need is a FG to win

Ravens fan here.

I'm looking forward to a very good game Sunday with the Ravens / Patriots. As long as we keep the penalties to a minimum and keep the pressure on Brady, we have a great chance of winning.

I have to save, this doesn't surprise me one bit with Brady's comments earlier to Baltimore reporters.

-------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, Brady said he would try to gain any edge he can with the referees as long as his endeavors aid in a victory.


In a conference call with Baltimore reporters yesterday, Brady was asked if he felt like he was unfairly criticized for lobbying for two roughing the passer penalties in the Patriots’ 27-21 win over the Ravens earlier this season.


“Oh, I’m begging for preferential treatment if they’ll give it to me,” Brady said jokingly. “I just don’t think they’ll give it to me all the time. So I’m trying to butter up to those officials before the game and during the game so that we do get a call once in awhile. If it helps our team win, I’m all for it.”

And once again this makes the Patriots a bunch of cheating *******s.......
Every team does it and its more than obvious if you watch the game.

Of course, just look at this season and this pass interference crap. I don't think I have ever saw so many wide receivers throughout a season throw their hands and trying to get a flag thrown. Some were pretty legitimate, but wow were there a lot that shouldn't get called.

It must be called the PI +15 play in all the coaches playbooks nowadays when they want to chuck the ball down the field.

It is really a bit frustrating to see them protest and then see a flag thrown way after the play is over.

I think something should be done by the league about it.

That was an embarrassing game to watch; and to top it off it was on Monday night too.

Each team has 4 quarters to score or stop the other team from scoring.
If you think you will win if your offense gets a chance in OT, How about just do it in regular time instead of whining about not getting the chance in OT. And your Defense has been stopping the other team during regular time, why not stop them an extra time During Regular Time, and not lay down in OT and whine that your offense didnt get a chance to score....

Even if they did play the whole 15:00 for OT most games would still end in a FG, just like most close games in regular time.

What they should do is narrow the goalposts, that way you would have to get closer on offense...

Say the Super Bowl ends up being the Colts/Saints. Two great QB's light it up for 35+ points and the game goes into OT. One team wins the coin toss, drives 35-40 yards, kicks the FG and it's game over. The other QB never even gets to set foot on the field. To me it just seems wrong for a game to end that way and I doubt very few people would enjoy a Super Bowl ending in such fashion.

You'll always hear how any time a defense holds a team to a FG in the red zone how it's a "win for the defense" but that doesn't really apply when they stop the opponent outside the 30 and lose to some glorified soccer player who's performing the equivalent of a free throw from the three point line (unless Romo is holding).

I don't care how they do it, but something needs to be done. Every other sport with an overtime system allows both teams an opportunity. There's a reason the team that wins the coin toss *always* elects to receive.
