    Our offense was on fire but our defense was very inconsistent (like the bears offense ZING!)

    Sam Shields wasn't a Packer then.

    Who was our nickel back last year in that game? Josh Bell? Jarrett Bush?

    I remember it, and the argument was our D wasn't able to compete against a quality QB. I think we can take on any offense with our Defense and win. Would like similar offense play on the Packers and a turn around on Defense.

    This should scare Pittsburg. It was a great game though.

    I can't say we're going to win with any kind of certainty. I have no idea how our nerves will be early and if that'll cause some weird mistakes.

    Pittsburgh's been there before. They won't have those nerves.

    I remember Steelers had a guy named Gay in their secondary last year and he sucked. Rodgers was burning him all night. Just like our Bush was getting burned all night by Rothlisberger.

    Just checked, he still is on the Steelers roster! Sweet!!!

    Our defense is much better overall than it was last year, but then again, so is theirs.

    How can i forget, but you see who they were picking on the game jared bush and joshua bell both good ST guys. That game hurt me so bad cause my friend a big time steeler fan was just laughing right in my face. but he still owed me 100 bucks cause our record was better then there at the end of the season.

    They only have Hines Ward and rookie receivers. Their defense is no where near ours. We have the turf. We have the secondary and a great pass defense. We will make them one dimensional if they can even run on us and we take it by 10. Don't forget that Rodgers can wear his comfortable shoes.

    The guy that caught the game winning catch last year?

    Still there, so how is that a rookie?

    yeah but the steelers are all older meaning they should get worn down quicker hence why the jets made that second half comeback after a first half smashing

    Wasn't Polamalu out the last time we played the Steelers? I'm pretty sure he was. That will change things a bit, the Steelers are much better defensively when he is in. I don't have the stats on me but it's really quite astonishing how much better the Steelers are with him. Much like Bob Sanders with the Colts.

    Polamalu was out I think your right. Crud. Yeah, that makes their Defense much better. He can play the run, blitz, cover well, and lay big hits.

    Hey guys, yeah we have an older roster, but we've played one less playoff game and have 25 guys on our team that have played in the Super Bowl, 17 of which have played in 2. I see this matchup being pretty even.

    Yup.
    Last year was last year.
    And don't forget that the Bears beat us at home and so did the Falcons.
    So anything can happen and the past is past.

    It will be a heck of a game. Two of the best QBs in the business.

    Last year we had Tyrone "little arms" Carter in place of Troy... And you guys destroyed our secondary.. Actually everyone destroyed our secondary without #43

    I expect this game to be the real defensive slugfest, and either Ben or Rodgers makes the game winning drive.
