Super Steelers

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

Feb. 7, 2006 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP

The Pittsburgh Steelers are Super Bowl champions, going from a sixth seed in the AFC to win it all. Congrats to Bill Cowher, Jerome Bettis, Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward and company.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame added an impressive class. Troy Aikman, Warren Moon, the late Reggie White, Harry Carson, Rayfield Wright and John Madden made it to Canton. I was so happy to see Madden make it for all he has done for the sport.

The Dallas Mavericks have an 11-game win streak. Avery Johnson has done a great job with this squad.

The Los Angeles Clippers are 11 games over .500 for the first time since 1974-75.

Tiger Woods beat Ernie Els in a playoff to win the Dubai Desert Classic.

STOCK DOWN

The New York Knicks are 1-11 in their last 12 games.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have one win in their last 17 games. They lost to Ottawa on Monday.

The coach who left Murry Bergtraum guard Epiphany Prince in a game long enough to score 113 points last week in New York City. Is that really sportsmanship?

The NFL and the Players Association say labor talks are stalled. Guess what, both sides should be locked in a room and work out the differences.

Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow are splitsville, baby! I was sorry to hear about that.

Dick Vitale coached the Pistons and the University of Detroit before broadcasting ESPN's first college basketball game in December 1979. Send him a question for possible use on ESPNEWS.
