<quoted text>dream on drooly. love your half baked argument here. newsflash: you play the team you're scheduled to play. bottom line the steelers won their division, took care of business in the playoffs and are one step away from a 7th super bowl trophy. no other franchise is even close to 7 with the cowboys and 49ers at 5 and not looking too good for next year.

yeah it's all a conspiracy and you figured it out! wow! you need your own tv show, or blog, or maybe you should just sit in the park and yell at the birds! lmao! fool.
Exactly, no wonder all steeler fans think alike, we r winners that's why!

This is going to be a close game for sure.

Ben has the experience of past SB wins.

Rodgers is HOT right now and the Steeler defense better watch for the quick passes. If they can get to Rodgers, it will make the game.

Packers wide receivers are much faster than the Steelers defense. Polumalu is fast but he can only cover one side of the field at a time. When the Packers line up in a 4 wide set, it will be interesting. There is NO way the Steelers defense can stop the Packers if they are on their passing game.

Should be a great matchup. I pick GB by 6.

all offenses can be stopped and all defenses can be beat. look what happened to green bay in the regular season. this game will come down to a few big plays. i like the steelers D to come up with one too.

The Packers are the faster team.

Steelers will struggle in the dome against a speedy passing attack, and speedy pass rush.

They’re going to need some great coverage and a lot of pass rush if they hope to do well.

If Green Bay’s offensive line plays well, Rodgers will have all day to throw and will surgically dissect the Steeler’s defensive backfield.

The Packers will force the Steelers to beat them through the air. GB has only allowed two 100 yard rushers all season. Even with a little success on the ground, the Steelers will have to air it out to keep up with Rodgers and Co. in a dome.

I like GB’s chances.

If you inserted 'Steelers' or 'Pittsburgh' anywhere you wrote Green Bay or Packers, it would be the same philosophy for the Steelers.

If Pittsburgh's offensive line plays well, Roethlisberger will have all day to throw and will surgically dissect the Packer’s defensive backfield.
The Steelers will force the Packers to beat them through the air. PITT has only allowed ZERO 100 yard rushers all season. Even with a little success on the ground, the Packers will have to air it out to keep up with Roethlisberger and Co. in a dome.
I like PITT’s chances.

Not sure why you focus on the dome aspect...neither plays in a dome at home. In addition, this is a semi-dome (it will be closed) but crowd noise will be split at times between Pack & Steeler fans, plus the whine & cheezers that are just happy to be there at 10K per seat.

Its going to be a good game, both teams have very similar aspects and philosophies.

Take my word for it.
A team north of the Mason-Dixon line WILL win the Super Bowl trophy.

It's a lock .........
