STEELERS v. PACKERS, ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!
Pittsburgh Steelers against the Green Bay Packers, WOW! The two best teams facing off in Big D on February 6, 2011. This might be the first time in a long time that people will be watching the game for the the sport itself as opposed to those million-dollar commercials. I’ll get right to the point here, how the heck are the Steelers underdogs in this game? This is their 3rd trip to the show in the last 6 years (winning the last two). The only difference between those Steeler teams and this one is the running game which has improved for the Steelers. They went from Jerome Bettis, to Willie Parker, to Rashard Mendenhall. Big Ben is still the clutchest quarterback in the game right now. Don’t get me wrong, I love Aaron Rodgers, but look at the teams they’ve beaten in the playoffs. The Atlanta Falcons who we all agree are overrated and the Cutler-less Chicago Bears. And let me tell you something, Green Bay looked good in the 1st quarter against the Bears but disappeared the rest of the game. If it wasn’t for that Baji pick 6, we might be talking about the Bears and the Steelers. I’ll give the Pack credit though for winning both games on the road. The Steelers on the other hand, beat the Ravens and the Jets. Their offense, while also a dirty grindy team, can definitely put up points with the best of them. They still have Hines Ward, Heath Miller and a pair of rookie WRs that are turning heads. Don’t forget about that vaunted D led by all-pro Troy Polamalu. So I think you know which way I’m leaning, take the Steelers, take the win. Forget about the 2.5 Big Ben always has a way to pull it out. He might not put up Peyton Manning or Tom Brady numbers but at the end of the day, who would you rather have to lead your 2:00 minute drill in the fourth quarter?
