Joey Porter is angry. Angry, angry, angry. Why so angry? Because Seattle tight end Jerramy Stevens has the unmitigated gall to actually believe that his team will win this game. How dare he! Seattle should be going into this game with the belief that they will lose; anything else is disrespectful to the Steelers. Then again, if Joey Porter is saying that the Seahawks have no right to say that they will win, isn't he disrespecting the Seahawks? They won more games, right? So Joey Porter is disrespecting the Seahawks because Jerramy Stevens is disrespecting the Steelers because the media is disrespecting the Seahawks. Lather, rinse, repeat. What's the point of this? Shouldn't the Lombardi Trophy be all the motivation anyone needs to play hard in the Super Bowl?
(Aside: Porter apparently discovered that somebody was disrespecting the Steelers before every single game this season.)

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
