pMax Carson Compare and Contrast Final Draft 2/17/12 The 2008 Super Bowl Teams vs. the 2012 Super Bowl Teams In 2008, the New England Patriots and the New York Giants met at The University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona to compete for the right to be called champions of Super Bowl XLII. Four years later, the same two teams met again for Super Bowl XLVI. It seemed to most people that the fate of these 2012 teams was predetermined. Immediately following a Giants’ victory over San Francisco, journalists, analysts, and fans across America began making comparisons between the Giants and Patriots of the 2011 season and their predecessors of four years earlier. Debating the similarities and differences between these teams became a trendy
It was 3rd and ten at the Jets one yard line and looked promising. But as the New York Jets history will show, nothing is set in stone. Victor Cruz of the New York Giants ran 99 yards for a touchdown that changed the entire game. In the end, the giants came out victorious and went on to be the Super Bowl champions once again
Second, he possessed an astonishing intuition that resulted in long gains or touchdowns, when other quarterbacks would have been sacked. And third, he was a calm leader and an inspiration to everyone around him for more than a decade, (Montana, & Mitchell, 2006). Joe Montana would become the greatest NFL regular season and Super Bowl quarterback ever or at least to date; Joe’s climb to the top of the NFL was not ominous. Joe was not drafted by the 49ers until the third round in 1979, unlike most super star quarterbacks, that almost always go immediately in the first round draft. Joe Montana shined during his high school athletic career, but had to earn every spot he played after that, (Montana, & Mitchell,
DeMar Davis 6-21-12 Engl 1102 Dr.Raynie A Bird Soaring High Philadelphia the city of brotherly love, the city with professional teams that are great, has history in the making, and setting new records, it is the city with the best team in the National Football League right now, The Philadelphia Eagles. It has been a long, long time since a NFL team got so cocky, so quickly. Sensing an opportunity for a real run at what would be their first-ever Super Bowl championship, the Eagles shoved all their chips to the middle of their table and went after every top players they could get to come along for their ride. Other teams, networks, and hall of famers called the Eagles the dream team. Even
He was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings. During Jamel’s career he broke all of Randy Moss’s records. Jamel led his team to three super bowl championships. He was once again inducted into the Hall of Fame and until this day is the best wide receiver that ever walked the face of the Earth. After Jamel’s 15 year football career he retired.
The Superbowl is an event that sports enthusiasts look forward to and love to attend at least one time in their lives. The combination of the action on the field, the entertainment at halftime, and the unveiling of the year's new commercials bring sports fans and non-sports fans in front of their televisions to witness the three and a half hour spectacle. There are a few reasons to explain why football is the most popular sport in America today. The entertainment value is unmatched compared to other major sports. There are bone crushing tackles, spectacular catches, precise throws, running backs breaking tackles for long gains, and the strength and athletic ability of all positions (except kickers and punters, of course) to make plays for their team.
After trailing the entire game, the ball was finally in their court, but with minimal time on the clock. On the very next play it was as if god had given the running back for Tecumseh a set of wings. He flew down the sidelines deep into Cougar territory. The stage was now set. With five ticks on the clock remaining, the once hopeless Arrows lined up for the game winning thirty three yard field goal.
Young also won the 2005 Cingular Player of the Year Award, All-American Offensive Player, and The Maxwell Award (college player of the year). He is what some would call the best college football player ever, and he fills this role pretty well. A perfect display of his dominance was exhibited at the 2006 Rose Bowl where he compiled 467 yards of total offense and 3 rushing touchdowns. Young’s third touchdown came in the final seconds of the game where he ran around the outside and went untouched into the end zone to put Texas up 41-38 over unbeaten USC. But like Redick, Vince keeps it together off the field.
They both have the most loyal and loudest fans in the league. Arrowhead Stadium the Chiefs home field since 1972 which has been called one of the world’s finest stadium and has a long reputation of being one of the toughest and loudest outdoor stadiums for opposing players to play in and all the noise is directly attributed to their fans where they once held the record for loudest outdoor stadium at 116 decibels. Till early in the 2013 season the Seahawks fans, which are referred by as the 12th man broke that record with a 136.3 decibels. The 12th man, Seahawks fans nickname have been loud since the beginning too first in the Kingdome and now in CenturyLink Field where they broke the Chiefs fans record with a 135.4 decibels in early 2013 season. Then four weeks later Kansas City’s fans took back their record with 137.5 decibels but that also didn’t last long when the 12th man took the record again recording 137.6 decibels.
While with the Philadelphia Eagles, Owens’ main celebration was flapping his arms like he was an eagle. Because of Johnson’s and Owens’ celebrations, the NFL made it a rule that a player would be fined for excessive celebration. These celebrations are a huge part of the show that these players put on for the fans. After all, Owens and Johnson are the reason that the seats are filled the stadium. After the rule was passed Johnson called the NFL the “No Fun League.” Johnson continues to celebrate when he scores since it’s such a rare occasion for him this
