CRAPPIEST SUPER BOWLS

Posted on: August 19, 2008 5:15 am
 

What were the WORST Superbowls you remember, not just because your team lost, but because one or both team(s) failed to show much interest in winning the game, and almost made you want to change the channel (or did)?

My pick: Super Bowl 30, Dallas vs. Pittsburgh.  Neither team seemed to want to win.  Dallas didn't look at all like the team that won Super Bowl 27 and 28.  Just terrible.   Neil O'Donnell was horrible, especially late in the game.  I thought maybe Cowher should've put Kordell in.

Those are good choices too, Pat.  Especially the Colts/Cowboys.  Bleck!

Hey Retro, My votes are for 2 different ones, it was a tossup, Super Bowl IX Pittsburgh 16 Minnesota 6 This had all the excitement, 2-0 at halftime and Minnesota's only score was a blocked punt in the endzone in the 4th quarter and then they missed the extra point (boring) and Super bowl 5 Baltimore 16 Dallas 13. Don't let the score deceive you this was the sloppiest game ever played. I mean 6 int. 5 fumbles...A def player from the losing team gets MVP....Please..how boring is that.....The only MVP was Jim O'brien the FG kicker who hit the game winner with 5 sec's left to spare us OT in this dreadful game

Another one that sucked was actually the first AFC win, Jets vs. Colts.  Sure, it made the world recognize Broadway Joe Namath and it proved that the AFC belongs in the Super Bowl, after Oakland and Kansas City got murdered in the big game by the Packers.  But both teams were very sloppy.

Neil O'Donnell almost ruined the New York Jets franchise!

Then Tuna came in and saved us.

I will have to agree... it was a dark day in Steel City... the shame of that game aside from the obvious mention of a certain QB, is that Bill Cowher did some excellent coaching in that game... it would have been very easy for the Steelers to throw in their Terrible Towels early on in that game as the hype of the game got the better of the young Steelers in the first half.

The confidence in the young defense, led by the returning Rod Woodson and Greg Lloyd, the diligent play calling by Chan Gailey and the gutsy performance of Andre Hastings and Ernie Mills at wideout, and probably one of the biggest coaching calls in the history of a Superbowl the on-side kick that brought the life back to the Black & Gold...

It's crappiness for me was more the result, the amazing assension to the pinnacle of the Super Bowl only to have it all disappear so quickly with an errant throw...

Yeah, Neil O'D****** was a joke.  But what really got me about that Super Bowl was that Dallas didn't look very good at all.. especially not like the d*cks that killed my Bills in SB XXVII.

Another bad one was Ravens vs. Giants.  That Giants team should not have scored.  They were beyond inept.
