flacco is a playoff choker. manning choked in every playoff except one. he even choked in his last super bowl. some QBs excel when the game is huge and others choke. flacco historically gets a case of the slows. it's like his brain starts to get filled with sludge. i doubt that will change.

LOL!!... you act like you own or run the team, you're just an Athletic SUPPORTER ya FOOL!

Wow! Beating Seattle where later the ref admitted to making bad calls in favor of the Stealers ... and beating a 9-7 Arizona team, whoop whoop, couldn't beat the Packers though, who have won 13 league championships (more than any other team in the NFL).

"The officiating in Super Bowl XL was met with harsh criticism from some of the media soon after the game, with some columnists saying that the officiating cost the Seahawks the game. One call that was complained about was an offensive pass interference on wide receiver Darrell Jackson for a "push-off" against Steelers safety Chris Hope that nullified his 16-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.[11] Another complaint had to do with a penalty in the fourth quarter against Seattle right tackle Sean Locklear for allegedly holding Steelers linebacker Clark Haggans around the neck that nullified a deep pass. Also disputed was the penalty on Hasselbeck for an illegal block while simply making a tackle during Ike Taylor's interception return.[12][13]

Kansas City Star writer Jason Whitlock encapsulated some views when he wrote the day after the game, "Bill Leavy and his crew ruined Super Bowl XL. Am I the only one who would like to hear them defend their incompetence?"[14] Initially, some fans reacted negatively as well. A February 7 online ESPN poll found that, with 103,167 votes cast, 61.7% of those votes were cast for the choice of "officiating mistakes affected the outcome of Super Bowl XL." [15][16] Also, Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren himself took issue with the officiating at a celebration for his team on February 6 at Qwest Field, saying, "We knew it was going to be tough going against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I didn't know we were going to have to play the guys in the striped shirts as well."[17] Holmgren was not fined for the remarks.

In response to the criticisms leveled at the officials, the NFL, just two days after the game, released a statement defending the officials' performance. "The game was properly officiated, including, as in most NFL games, some tight plays that produced disagreement about the calls made by the officials," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement.[18]

High profile referee Ed Hochuli said "the league felt, actually, that the Super Bowl was well officiated. Now, that doesn't mean there were no mistakes. There are always mistakes, but it was a well-officiated game." [19]

On August 6, 2010, while visiting the Seahawks' preseason training camp for an annual rules interpretation session with the Seattle media, Leavy brought up Super Bowl XL without being asked, and admitted to having blown calls:[19]

Leavy said this:
It was a tough thing for me. I kicked two calls in the fourth quarter and I impacted the game, and as an official you never want to do that. It left me with a lot of sleepless nights, and I think about it constantly. I'll go to my grave wishing that I'd been better ... I know that I did my best at that time, but it wasn't good enough ... When we make mistakes, you got to step up and own them. It's something that all officials have to deal with, but unfortunately when you have to deal with it in the Super Bowl it's difficult.[

Choked? Can you say "his last SB" for Joe Flacco?! No, with Ben Roethlisberger, we can say it three times! The Ravens aren't innocent. Ray Lewis is a murderer!

No, I did not mean that. I meant that the Ravens are garbage when it comes playoff time.

Steelers are a filthy, dirty team and scumball psycho Harrison should be banned from the league for his play. He deliberately hit Colt McCoy with intent to injure, and has been punished multiple times for this crap. What's it going to take to get him banned?

Thug. Wait 'til the last game in Cleveland. They should go after him big-time. Whatever it takes.

Don't get mad because your team has been watching the Super Bowl from the television for countless years. The Browns are garbage right now, and if they don't change, that's all they'll ever be!
