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.)

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
