    There is something wrong with that picture.
    "Titletown" is plural.
    There is one and only one title town and that is Green Bay.
    No way no how Armpittsblaugh is title town no matter how many SBs they have won.
    They do not deserve our rightful moniker!

    The NFL has it wrong.

    I'm not a Steelers fan but I can answer that question. They think their team will win for the same reason we think the Packers are going to win. They have faith and love for their team ever as we do.

    Hellooooooooo!!!
    Your on a rival team's site which just happens to represent a team playing against yours.
    Are we all supposed to all join hands and sing "Ring around the Rosey" as if nothing is going on?
    The only fan base who will all appreciate the Steelers are the Steelers fans themselves. Duuuuhh!
    And the majority that I've seen for "lack of respect" towards the Steelers, including myself, on here is mostly towards Ben Rapistbooger.
    Other than that there is tons of respect I've seen Packers posters express towards the Steelers. Many of them are happy with this match up.
    As for myself, I still wish it had been the Jets since I hate the Steelers.

    Let me speak for myself and myself only,

    Great players on the Packers, you don't think there is any? LOL I don't have to name any names, they are superstars


    I'm not congratulating myself, I don't think any Packers fan is, I think as Packers fans we are excited as hell we get to face the Steelers the only team that I'd want to face b/c it would be that much more gratifying to win a Superbowl against the Steelers

    JV Squad Defense, not the first time I've heard this comparison before, guess what? all those defenses you've faced..got nothing on ours

    Lack of respect? not respecting the terrible towel? personally, I think waving a towel around your head during a game kinda looks a little sill, just my opinion

    Steeler Nation, not at all, but you won't see me registering on your forum to post my opinions all over your board, I'll read your board, but I have ZERO interest in posting on your board...Steeler Nation has MANY fans, so do we

    I could care less about appreciating the Steelers, all I want to do is beat that Team, that's all, I'll appreciate them if they beat us, but I am not going to shower my praises over a team I want to see get crushed, just my opinion

    It's going to be a good game, but I'll tell you exactly why Pittsburgh will own 7 Lombardi trophies when it's over.

    The Packers do not have a running game. If you do not have a balanced offense and some threat of a running game, the Steelers defense will eat you up (with the exception of New England, they are the only team who is one dimensional that routinely gives us fits). The Packers offense is predictable, and the Steelers D is going to make things very difficult for Rodgers. He had a big day last year, but it was against an injury marred Pittsburgh D. It's completely different with number 43 in there, and our secondary is overall better than in 2009.

    Pittsburgh's running game is also greatly improved over last season, as well as the offensive line. We beat the same Packers team in 2009 (barely), as a 9-7 team. I expect a much improved Steelers team to be able to control the ball and keep the dangerous Packer offense on the sidelines watching.

    I don't think it's going to be a high scoring game, and I do believe it will be close. At the end of the day though, the Steelers are just the better team. The Packers will be back, as they have good young core and will only get better from this experience.

    I suppose it could be said that our offence is predictable. And presumably the defensive brains of the Eagles, Falcons and Bears all thought so too. And prepared themselves for it.

    Didn't stop our "predictable" offence scoring a total of 85 points over those three teams though did it? And all of them away games too!

    if you ever hear a steelers fan talk down about their team, it's probably really a cleveland browns fan in disguise.

    The Eagles, Falcons, and Bears are nothing like our defense. If you thought Urlacher and Peppers were tough, wait until you see Harrision, Woodley, Farrior, Timmons, Polamalu, and big snack Hampton.

    Props to winning those road games though, we know just how tough it is. We were the first to do it. ;-)

    Not sure why we would be any different than NE in this case? We match up fairly closely in most respects, especially if you look at the latter part of the season when we started to establish the run. Brady certainly has more experience and is likely the league MVP, but Rodgers adds the scramble threat.

    I doubt your Steelers will "eat us up". It won't be that easy.

    Yes, but we ended up in the top 10 in the NFL in scoring and total yards-- ahead of the Steelers in both categories. Plus, if you look at the last 6-7 games, the Packers have vastly improved on these numbers-- perhaps as a result of our three Offensive rookies (RB, TE, RT) finally settling in.

    Touche, so is ours. IIRC, we had Bell and Bush, two 3rd stringers, in our secondary in 2009. Now, we have three Pro-Bowlers and a rookie sensation in Sam Shields.

    Based up regular season and post season team statistics, this is generally not supported. If anything, I give an edge to the Packers.

    However, as we all know, statistics mean squat. e.g. 6 of the top 8 rushing teams didn't even make the playoffs...

    I will agree that the Steelers have a significant edge in SB experience and related confidence. And considering the excessive media hype and bright lights, this could be a huge factor.

    If the Packers can focus come game day, which I believe they will, this should be a close game.

    It will definitely be a close game, and a great one!

    I don't think it will be anything like 2009. Of course I think our Steelers are going to win though, I'm a Steelers fan! ;-)

    Both teams are so evenly matched it's scary.

    If you actually spent some time on this board rather than creating an account this past week and immediately making such a bold statement linking Green Bay fans with the national media, you would realize that your comment is out of line.

    All teams have die-hard "homer" fans who predict blow-outs every week. This board is no different. But, I think the average take on the upcoming SB from GB fans is one of utmost respect for the Steelers and their historic organization.

    I, for one, was hoping for a Jet win just to avoid having to face the Steelers. No disrespect to the Jets, but I simply didn't want my youthful in-experienced Packer squad to face the seasoned SB-ring-ladened team from Pittsburgh while on the biggest stage.

    Dude, you went from being a Cliff Clavin know-it-all to a homer in one sentence.

    Pittsburgh defense is damned good and ranked #1 for good reason. But calling a defense that is anchored by Peppers and Urlacher "JV" is plain silly. Philly D isn't too shabby either.

    In summary, lighten up, pal. There is no lack of respect here nor any more team-hype than you just showed in your own post.

    Of course you are! Do you remember the 1980's well? You know when you probably fled from Pittsburgh, and lived elsewhere? I am not overlooking your squad you got a pretty good one. But please don't troll here, and leave bullshit comments about how great you guys are. Look we get it you have 6 rings, and no one else has 6 and has as many fans as the Steelers. It's cool man it really is! No I am not a Ravens fan either if you are thinking that hahaha.

    Could anyone post these links to the National Media saying it's going to be Green Bay hoisting the trophy?

    The only advantage they have is in Vegas and I believe that is because Vegas wants people to put money on the Steelers due to people winning by following the "hot hand" in GB for the past 3 weeks.

    From what I have heard on the radio/articles/networks the Steelers are heavily favored due to experience.

    Which comment was the troll, exactly?

    a) It will definitely be a close game, and a great one!

    b) Both teams are so evenly matched it's scary.

    c) all of the above

    d) none of the above

    e) Six ring snobbery is implied whenever a Steeler fan posts, anywhere.

    Pardon me if it's in his sig; I disable those gigantic vertical space wasters asap on any board.

    IMO there's no gimme for either team.

    - Great defenses, both have allowed points at times. (Edge: Pittsburgh vs. run, Packers vs. pass). D-coordinators are both fantastic. Advantage: Steelers

    - QBs - Different styles to be sure, but both can run and both can torch defenses. Advantage: Packers

    - Run game - Both teams can run, both have had some trouble running. I don't recall if GB had injuries on the O-line this year or whether Starks is that much more explosive than Jackson. I'll go with injury since I'm also a Husker fan. ;) Advantage: Steelers

    - Passing game - This is what scares me the most about Green Bay. Plus, while Pittsburgh has Wallace and Miller, they also have some rookies, and Ward isn't getting open as much. Rodgers > Roethlisberger as a pure passer. This may be a push but I'll say advantage to the Packers.

    - Special teams - Did I mention Pittsburgh has six rings? That's what special teams have done for them this year. Advantage: Packers

    - Loads of injuries overcome by both teams. It's flat out amazing that either made the Superbowl. Push

    One rather glaring stat is 600+ penalty yards assessed against the Packers, versus 900+ for Pittsburgh.

    All in all, this game's going to go to the team that makes the most plays and fewest mistakes.

    I think you have to breakdown D.

    DL: Packers (Jenkins, Pickett and Raji > Smith, Kiesel and Hapton)
    LB: Steelers (Matthews > Harrison, but Woodley = Harrison, we don't have 2 guys like that. ILBs also little advantage Steelers)
    DBs: Packers (Polamalu is great, but so is reigning DPOY Woodson. So wash. Then, Collins > Clark, Williams > Taylor, Shields > McFadden, Peprah > Gay. Yes, I know, I compared a S with a CB).

    And about injuries, you can't be serious. The Packers have record setting, all time games missed by starters injuries.
    You have, what? OL? Smith missed time?

    Cullen Jenkins missed a lot of time. Matthews missed time. Rodgers missed time. And those guys are playing.

    Our starting RT (Tauscher) is out.
    Our starting TE (Finley) is out.
    Our backup TE (Havner) is out
    Our starting RB (Grant) is out.
    Our Starting ILB (Barnett) is out.
    Our backup ILB (Chillar) is out.
    Our Starting SS (Burnett) is out.
    Our backup FS (Anthony Smith) is out.
    Our starting OLB (Jones) is out.
    Our backup OLB (Zombo) is out.
    Our backup backup OLB (Poppinga) is out.
    Our backup/starting DE (Neal) is out.

    And there are some more, but they wouldn't contribute much.

    Smith has been out since week 4 I think, and we only have one starter on our line right now, and he's playing out of position. A couple of those guys couldn't play 3rd string on most teams. Honestly, I don't think anyone is discounting what the Pack has done in the face of adversity, but both teams have suffered some major injuries.
