Well this is the last of my Superbowl week posts. And I saved the best for last, my top 5 Superbowls that I think are the best.
Number 5 – Superbowl 27 which had the Dallas Cowboys beating the Buffalo Bills. I liked this Superbowl because I was pissed that the Bills knocked the Houston Oilers out of the playoffs as I was hoping for an all Texas Superbowl. But that didn’t happen so it was great to watch the Bills get destroyed.
Number 4 – Superbowl 42 had the New York Giants beating the New England Patriots. Since I hate the Pats I was just happy to see them lose. David Tyre’s catch towards the end of the game is in my opinion the second greatest play in Superbowl history.
Number 3 – Superbowl 44 was the New Orleans Saints playing the Indianapolis Colts. I enjoyed this Superbowl because everyone in the media had picked the Colts to win and they didn’t even come ready to play. The Saints destroyed the Colts with superior play and coaching. And the win finally got the “monkey” off of the Saints back and made the city of New Orleans forget about Hurricane Katrina.
Number 2 – Superbowl 13 was my earliest Superbowl memory. It was a pivotal matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers beat the Cowboys in a shootout that saw Terry Bradshaw throw four touchdown passes and was the games MVP. A lot of people have said over the years that Terry Bradshaw was a dumb quarterback, but if you look at some of the passes he threw and completed, he is a damn good quarterback.
Number 1 –Superbowl 43 was in my mind the best Superbowl ever. It was the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Arizona Cardinals. The Steelers played a great game and was able to pull off the win by going on a "length of the field" come from behind touchdown drive that ended with (in my opinion) was the greatest Superbowl play in history when Santonio Holmes caught the touchdown pass on his tippy toes to win the game. Also James Harrison ran an interception back for a touchdown 100 yards at the end of the first half which set a record for the longest touchdown play in Superbowl history. Even if you disagree with me on the ranking of this one, Santonio Holmes play at the end of the game has been ranked by a ton of people as the greatest play in Superbowl history.
So there is my list of the Top 5 best Superbowls. I hoped you enjoyed it and I hope you enjoyed my week of Superbowl nonsense.
