And now the back to the Super Bowl. A game many are exited for, but a lot of people with tickets will have trouble getting to due to all this weather in the mid-west. I personally am rooting for the Packers. I am tired of seeing the Steelers in the Super Bowl, and Ben Roethlisberger is a bad person off the field. That and being a Seahawks fan I still am mad about 2005.
|You just don't see Manning doing this|
To many bad things. Motorcycles, sexual assaults, and maybe some attempted rapes, I am very much against "Big Ben". Brady, Manning, and even Drew Brees, Phillip Rivers, they are better in my opinion. And Big Ben plays on a team where he does not lead them to wins, the defense does. He does not deserve to be in that category.
But enough about Big Ben. Lets move on to team comparison. When you look at each position, and who is better, it looks something like this:
Position Packers Steelers
QB X Rodgers better then
Roethlisberger any day.
RB X So much inexperience for GB
going against #1 run-defense.
WR X Close, but it comes down to TE
where PIT has better player.
OL X Even without Pouncey, PIT is
DL X More experience upfront gives
PIT the edge
LB X GB has #2 LB unit in NFL, but PIT
DB X No stars for PIT but Polamalu, but
GB can match rest.
ST X Crosby is best kicker here by far.
Coach X Both good, but Tomlin has the
playoff experience and a ring.
When Packers have the Ball
Pittsburgh's defense is very very good. They will, as I said before, shut down this run game. The secondary needs to play huge though if they want to for sure win.
When Steelers have the Ball
Steelers passing game will not have a big day, but the run game will. An opposite of how Green Bay will do this game. Watch for Mendenhall to have a great game. But the pass needs to have at least a few big plays.
The Packers defense will stop the pass. But the run defense, that has allowed 114 ypg this season needs to play huge. If Pouncey doesn't play for PIT, that will benefit the Packers in a huge way. If he does, it will be very hard to GB to stop the run.
But as they say, "defense wins championships." And that is what will happen here. Pittsburgh wins another Super Bowl, and we all need to consider if someone has taken over the Patriots for the best dynasty right now.
This will be a slug fest game. Low scoring in a defensive battle. I do not expect a lot of scoring. But we have seen weirder things in Super Bowls. Maybe both defenses shut down and its a shootout of passing? But I'm going to play it safe. Pittsburgh wins 21-17.
