Pittsburgh Steelers Win Superbowl 43 – Holmes named MVP!

What a game, what a game, what a game!!! The Pittsburgh Steelers are the 2009 Super Bowl Champions after defeating the Arizona Cardinals 27-24 making it the first franchise in NFL history to win six titles.  Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is the youngest head coach to ever win a Super Bowl.  Undercover ballerina Santonio Holmes was named the 2009 Super Bowl MVP.

The Pittsburgh Steelers came out strong scoring a field goal and two touchdowns while the Cardinals struggled in the first quarter but managed to put up 7 points and almost a second touchdown in the last 30 seconds of the game.Fitzgerald went up in the end zone to bring in the Warner lob for a touchdown! It was an 87 yard drive in less than 3 minutes! Steelers were still winning 20-14.The Cardinals defense held the Steelers to a safety after a foul accord in the end zone. It was the first safety in a Super Bowl since Super Bowl 25.   On the next Arizona drive, Larry Fitzgerald caught a slant pass in the middle and ran it into the end zone to give the Cardinals a 23-20 lead, their first lead in the game – what a run!!!

With less than 3 minutes, the pressure was now on Big Ben. He stepped in and started driving. With less than a minute, Holmes completed a huge 2nd down play to take the ball to the 7 yard line. Now it was up to the stellar Cardinals defense to hold them to a field goal
but it was Holmes again who made an incredible catch, keeping both feet inbounds and to return the lead to the Steelers 27-23.

Damn – that was a sweet game!!! 

That was one of the most exciting Super Bowls I have ever seen!

  1. This was truly classic Steeler football and for the sixth time the formula has worked. Perhaps the NFL’s model franchise, the Steelers have written “Defense Wins Championships” in stone, as they have relied on defense to be the staple of their team for decades. Furthermore, the stiff defense, which held Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald to a mere two catches until the fourth quarter, was complimented by other elements familiar to the Steeler faithful: a hard nosed running game and clutch play needed by the quarterback and recivers needed to win the big game.

  4. This was one impressive Super Bowl, I must say. Do you think that Kurt Warner is still a Hall of Famer? I read an interesting blog where one of the editors thought yes and Edgerin James no. Hmmm, I’m not sure.
