    Was listening to the Dallas radio and I heard a NFL radio spot hyping the SB. The spot said the Packers will "Try to STEAL the crown from Rothlisberger and the Steelers", as if the Steelers are by far the favorites to win it. Whatever.

    Wouldn't "Compete" for the crown be the accurate way to describe the game. Nope, looks like the NFL is going with Steelers, Big Ben and 2 rings are by far the favorites and the Pack are just the underdogs trying to squeak out a win against the great Steelers. I guess to make some David vs. Goliath B.S. hype.

    (shrugs) pretty much everyone on that team has won a ring. I have no problem with it. To be the man, you gotta beat the man.

    The way I look at it is that the Steelers have arguably been a dynasty over the later 2000's. I look it like we are taking the "crown" as in a sort of "passing the torch" sort of way. Like the Packers are trying to take their spot as the next dynasty.

    Just because the Packers aren't getting media coverage doesn't mean much. Packers are the feel good team, Steelers have something to settle.

    ESPN is all over the Steelers. I prefer it that way. Ever since Jimmy Johnson said "stick a fork in them" to the Packers no one has really said much. And keep it that way.

    dude james harrison scares me, that guy is a monster and he can put anyone out the game at any given moment. We have our assassin also Claymaker is scary chasing down qbs.

    If they were the defending champions, though I'd still disagree with it (you don't steal it, you win it...unless you're the Steelers playing the Seahawks or something) I could almost understand the language (almost)...but that just makes no sense at all.

    Maybe the copy writer thought it sounded good with "Steelers"...not that that makes any sense either.

    meh it's the old saying... to be the best, you gotta beat the best. And the steelers have been the best over the last half of the decade. They had the argument on Mike and Mike this morning. If you count 2010 as part of the decade, and they won this year, then the Pats won 3 in the first 5 years and the steelers won 3 in the last 5 years of the decade. So over the last 4 years they have been the best. We'll just have to take that crown from them and pick up that momentum heading into the next decade.

    I wish ESPN would stop talking ad nauseum about Cutler and actually acknowledge the team that won the game THE NFC CHAMPION PACKERS!!!

    Two weeks to go, there will be plenty of time for the Pack to shine
