Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports made his final weekly appearance of the season on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to wrap up the Super Bowl.
Esiason said it would not be fair to pin the Steelers' loss on Ben Roethlisberger. "Ben had really one bad throw the entire game," Esiason said. "And I know after the game he did the whole thing, 'Woe is me. It's my fault. It's all on my shoulders. I let down the city of Pittsburgh.' You talk about overreaction — they actually scored more offensive points than the Green Bay Packers did."
Esiason said Rodgers deserves credit more than Roethlisberger deserves blame. "I don't think this game is really about Ben Roethlisberger's lack of ability to get his team in the end zone in the fourth quarter," Esiason said. "I just think it was a stunning performance by Aaron Rodgers, who, quite frankly, if his receivers hold on to the football,...
The game was a thriller, but behind the scenes there were some issues at Sunday's Super Bowl. The biggest blunder was the failure of workers to complete 1,250 temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium that had been sold for $800 apiece. The NFL re-seated most of the affected individuals (taking seats away from Cowboys staff and families), offered three times the price as a refund, and put the remaining people in standing room areas where they had to watch a video screen.
Meanwhile, Christina Aguilera messed up a line in the national anthem, Las Vegas sports were hammered by bettors, and one of the four men featured in a Visa credit card commercial for having attended every Super Bowl had his streak ended when he was hospitalized.

Aaron Rodgers tossed a pair of touchdown passes and defensive back Nick Collins returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown to lead the Packers to a 31-25 victory over the Steelers on Sunday in Super Bowl XLV.
Thanks in large part to the work of Rodgers — who was named MVP after finishing 24-for-39 for 304 yards and three touchdowns — Green Bay jumped out to a 21-3 lead. However, behind Ben Roethlisberger — who was 25-for-40 for 263 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions — the Steelers mounted a strong second-half comeback. A late rally ended with less than a minute to go in the fourth quarter when a Roethlisberger pass for Mike Wallace fell incomplete.
This was Green Bay's fourth Super Bowl title. The Packers won the first two Super Bowls with Vince Lombardi coaching Bart Starr, and captured another with Brett Favre in January 1997, beating the Patriots.
Following the Celtics' 91-80 victory over the Magic on Sunday afternoon, Delonte West said he plans to return from his wrist injury in the team's first game after the NBA All-Star break — against the Warriors in Oakland on Feb. 22.
West has not played since Nov. 24 against the Nets, when he broke his wrist in the first half of an 89-83 victory. The reserve guard played just five games after returning from a 10-game suspension to open the season. He averaged 6.8 points and 2.0 assists in 17.6 minutes per game.
