Overeager fans and writers are already calling Super Bowl 43 one of the best ever played, and better than last year's game.

Whoa. Slow down there!

There were 16 penalties in this game, including 5 personal fouls. That's twice as many penalties as last year.

Last year, neither team ever lead by more than 4 points. This year, AZ played one decent quarter to take the lead after sinking to a 13 point deficit.

Last year, history was on the line. While the Cardinals could have won their first SB title in team history this year, that pales in comparrison to New England's attempt to go 19-0.

This year's media focus was on individuals- Warner, Fitzgerald, Tomlin, Roethlisberger. Last year was about two TEAMS.

Last year's game had a shocking final result. This one did not.

In short, 3 and a half minutes of a frantic finish does not make up for 56 and a half minutes of sloppy, undisciplined football.
