    Who will win the superbowl?  The Green Bay Packers or the Pittsburgh Steelers?

    I would say that the Steelers defense appears to have the advantage.  With Mendenhall their offense can move the football.

    Both are good team. Rodgers can move the ball and can dance around it. His eyes are moving. Packers are good in both defense and some offense.

    It will be a good game. I am rooting for Steelers to win, then next years will be anybodys, LOL

    I think the Steelers have the better wide receivers and an ugly-style playing QB who wins games. Plus, everyone knows the AFC is stronger than the NFC anyway. Steelers by six.

    I don't like seeing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl. I am starting to hate them more and more every year. Is it because they are good? Yes! Give some other team a chance! I'm sure they can't be help but be good. Will Ben win his 3rd championship? I hope not, but the way they are playing I don't see why they wouldn't win.

    Green Bay is going to take this one. Green Bay played four solid quarters. Pittsburgh played one half. This will probably go down to the wire, literally. Green Bay 28 Pittsburgh 24

      Green Bay's defense played 4 good quarters, the offense did not. If they try that against Pittsburgh, they will lose.  Pitt keeps coming atcha, offensively and defensively.  I'm ususally a GB fan, but ya gotta admire what Pitt has done without the big name receivers and the most adulated QB.

    Both teams are pretty evenly matched the one advantage pit has over green bay is at rb. Mendenhal is hard to stop and is playing very well. Starks and kuhn have to be one point for the pack to win and james jones has to stop dropping key passes! I say the pack in a close one 28-27

    Let me just say, as a someone who is not a fan of any particular team, I wouldn't be surprised if both conference finals were fixed

    I keep looking at this one and I just can't figure out who the better team is. Big Ben has the Super Bowl experience over Rodgers, but I think I actually like the Packers defense over the Steelers'. The Steelers run defense was excellent yesterday, especially in the second half when they were expecting more passes. The pass defense, on the other hand, was terrible in that second half. It's one thing to play in a safe defense to prevent big plays, it's quite another to play in a safe defense and still give up the big plays. The Pittsburgh secondary got picked apart by a sub-par quarterback on Sunday, and they barely hung on to win after being up 3 touchdowns at halftime. They MUST make adjustments before the big game, because Aaron Rodgers is not Mark Sanchez.

    I'm going to wait a week and see how some of the injuries on both sides are healing before I make my pick. The Pouncey injury in particular concerns me. He says he'll be ready for the Super Bowl. Center is the most underrated position in football. They are the leaders of the offensive line. They are not only responsible for exchanging the ball with the quarterback, they also control blocking assignments. A team that loses its starting center is worse-off than a team that loses its #1 wide receiver. Look at the near-disasters for Pittsburgh yesterday with Pouncey out of the game.

      I'm guessing Pouncey won't pull a Cutler and wuss out!  He'll probably play no matter how bad he is hurting.

    If it matters, all one has to do is remember, Steelers' qb has already been to the dance and the other hasn't. wink

    This is a very tough game to pick. I think it comes down to a last drive field goal. Pickem!

    Inevitably, the Steelers' defense will probably win them the game and then everyone will dance in the streets about how great Roethlisberger is when any mediocre QB could win with that defense.

    10-19 for 133 yards with 0 TDs, 2 INTs, 2 fumbles, and a safety in the AFC championship game and already the internet is exploding with people lauding Big Ben for "leading" the team to another Super Bowl.

      What about how effective QBs decision making plus the execution. Big B is big and tough plus he has the power to leave the pocket so to speak while Rodgers knows when to slide when he is about to be tackled. They can both run, plus dance and not just stand there glance side to side and pass and deliver like Peyton and Tom (LOL) - first name basis.

      The ability to be all around and be able to move, run and do it themselves (run to the endzone) are the qualities of these two QBs.

      Rodgers is also good, look at the movement of his eyes and feet, then he runs and do it himself.

      And finally, the greatness of a football team lies in the cohesiveness of the group, team effort so to speak and the needed ability to win when it is needed the most.

      To be fair, the safety was 100% the center's fault. He snapped it against the inside of his own leg as he tried to sweep to one side for a block. That's what happens when you lose your starting center.  Big Ben had a terrible game against one of the best pass defenses in the game. But I absolutely agree with your point about the defense. Just like all the teams that played this past weekend, the defenses got them there but the quarterbacks were the story. "Defense wins championships, offense sells tickets" is the old motto.

            Packers won. Couldn't watch the game. Why? Because I am a steel worker (Steelers fan) from Wisconsin (Packers fan). My two favorite teams played against each other. Had to not watch it. Life sucks sometimes.
