    ...because who can see it enough? When I said there has to be something wrong with that turf in Dallas. Injury after injury on both sides. Who thinks the NFL should have some kind of investigation on that killer turf?

    I watched it again this morning. Thats what made me check in here!

    I really don't think the turf was all that bad. I know we had a lot of injuries but it didn't seem that the field was the cause for most of them.

    I actually though the sod in Solider Field was worse. I watched the NFC Title game again last night!

    I was more amazed with the lack of traction on the field. I expected a fast track, not an oil slick.

    Wouldn't the NFL have checked out the turf before the game and given it their seal of approval?

    Just like the number of seats available in the upper decks were approved.

    So, I was watching the SB XLV again...

    You know, the last SB that we won. It was our 4th SB title and a league leading 13th NFL championship.

    No, no complain here. Just wanted you all to know that we won the last Super Bowl. That we are the defending World Champions.

    That is all.

    I dug out my VCR and got a 6 hour tape starting about 1/2 hour b4 kickoff.

    I was at the game and I said that myself, there.
    Nobody hit Woodson. He just dove and landed. Crack.
    Romo's collar bone was cracked there too, but it was being driven to the turf by a Giant blitzing LB.

    That field is hard.

    We would have won easily had Woodson not gone down late in the 1st half.

    As it was, we got lucky in the end to win.

    Watched SB XXXI a few weeks back. Still have never rewatched SB32. Also might still have NFCC vs Carolina. Tapes are holding up better than I expected. Quality is starting to suffer getting blurry. The low res video doesn't help.

    I have it 720p 13.5 Mbps on my external HD ;)

    It's crazy, I can tell how many laces there are in Woodson's cleats...

    Lucky you. I have every playoff game from the 2010 GB season, with the exception of the Wild Card game against the Eagles, in 480p, I got the footage using a DVD recorder. What recorder did you use to get your hi-quality footage? Or, did you rip it from the Blu-Ray DVD?

    I've watched the full game 15-20 times - recorded on DVD, but not high def. You'd think that after the 4th or 5th time, Woodson and Driver would get their **** together...but nooooooooo.... they get hurt every time. Pack have won each time so that gives us at least 28 NFL Championships.

    As for the field, I just thought it looked like a strange turf...and then couldn't figure out why it would be so slick...perhaps the teams were wearing the wrong type of shoe -- I'm sure Jerry Jones had shoes made specifically for the Cowbags where THEY don't slide all over god's creation....

    Somebody on youtube actually has the whole game minus the commercials up.

    I wonder how long before the NFL shuts it down.

    But it's too late, I already downloaded it with my Realplayer. It's on my hard drive now.

    I must have watched SB XLV 10 times since it happened but I still get the same anxiety when they get the ball down by 6 at the end. But every single time our defense has stopped them!
