Steelers Win Sixth Super Bowl

The Pittsburgh Steelers scored a touchdown in the final minute to defeat the Arizona Cardinals, 27-23, in Super Bowl XLIII.

This gives the Steelers more Super Bowl titles than any other franchise.

plez sez: In what turned out to be the most exciting Super Bowl between two of the most evenly matched teams, the Steelers squeaked out a win. the Cardinals pulled ahead for the first time with little more than 2 minutes left in the game. It was a ballsy Ben Roethlisberger who engineered the game winning drive with under 2 minutes left in the game.

And in a side note, congratulations to my KAPPA ALPHA PSI FRATERNITY brother and Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin in the win! Brother Mike Tomlin, a Spring 1991 initiate of Eta Omega Chapter (Old Dominion) and charter member of Xi Theta Chapter (William & Mary College), became the youngest head coach to win a Super Bowl.

Tomlin was promoted to head coach in January 2007, making him the NFL’s tenth African-American head coach and the first in Steelers history. In his first season, Tomlin lead the Steelers to a 10-6 record and followed that success with this year’s 12-4 record. In his short tenure he has accomplished two AFC North titles and has been awarded the 2008 Motorola NFL Coach of the Year.
