    I've been reading here for the last couple weeks, but have only posted a few times. Just wondering if other Packers fans are as nervous as I am? Everything about the game and the build up has me on edge.

    I wish the freaking game would just get here already. All the arguments, the wild predictions, the uncertainty, it's almost too much.

    Can we run it, can we stop them from running, can we stop Harrison, can they stop Rodgers, will they head hunt, can their secondary cover our wide outs, will Pouncey play, will Jenkins's dad go to the game, did Rothlisberger stay out too late, is Rodgers spending too much time in his room, why do they [Filth]ing swear so much on SteelersNation, which idiot invented Twitter, why am I smoking and eating so much, why do I have to watch the game with a couple people I don't like, what should I make for appetizers, which team has better hair,....?

    I so want the Pack to get this done, but no matter how I look at it, I can't see it be anything but a really close game. I hope my heart can take it.

    You wouldnt understand how nervous i am, i will be watching it with 2 arrogant steelers fans, that says they have been best since their team was made, so i would give anything for a victory, then i wouldnt hear from them till next season starts :)

    I'm extremely nervous, you may think living in the UK, it would be easier to deal with it. But, I've found it a pain as it's all I can think about, but there is nobody else around me who even has a clue about the sport never mind this game! Therefore there is nobody to share the nerves and anxiety!

    I fly out to Dallas at 7am tomorrow (UK time) and I cannot wait for us to get it on. Go Pack Go!

    I'm defiantly confident. Like I felt against the Eagles, Falcons and Bears.
    (But also like I felt against the Falcons and Bears the first time, so...)

    I'm not as nervous as I was for the championship game which is surprising. My stomach was in knots leading up to that game, but now I'm fine. I think there's something wrong lol :)

    Grr .... Sunday is taking forever to get here. I seriously can't take Steelers winning , because you know that they will blow smoke up Ben's butt and call Steelers town " the real titletown". Packers need to win this weekend and prove that they are the best team in the NFL.

    Let them call their city what they want. As long as it hosts the "LOMBARDI" trophy, how can it truly be called Titletown?

    I am ready about all things Packers today and I am nervous as all get out. I don't think we will lose, but this is a win or go home empty handed and I want this team to win so bad for themselves. I want to see all of our players celebrating, not the Steelers. And I am selfish and believe it or not I am a Celtics and Texas Rangers fan and had to see the Lakers celebrating (most revolting thing possible) and the Giants celebrating, so I am 0-2 in championships, but i would trade the Celtics and Rangers winning for a Packer's SB. All sports allegiances go out the window for my Green Bay PAckers! Let's get Lombardi's Trophy back!

    I am very nervous, so happy they are where they are though. I am sure I will be pacing the floors all day like I did for the NFC championship game.

    The NFC Championship was the "stomach-in-knots" game for me. I felt like I was on life support that depends on how the Packers played during that game. Compared to that game, the Super Bowl is like a preseason game to me.

    Gotta agree that I was far more nervous for the NFC Championship Game.

    Might be because even if we..don't win..it will still be a very successful season. Losing to the Bears would have put a shadow over the season.

    I'm with the general population, was more nervous about the NFC game. Yesterday I was looking looking at different team's jersey designs, and the Bears ones no longer phased me. This game just feels more like another playoff game.

    Agreed, the NFCCG seemed way more stressful. The SB feels fun and I'm gonna enjoy the he'll out of it. I want us to win, but I'm not a wreck like I was against the bears.

    I had about 10 small heart attacks during the Bears game so I can imagine what I'm going to be like Sunday. It's Friday and I'm in minor freak mode.:fie:

    for me this team has been a "heart attack" team all season. So many close games.... coulda won, shoulda won, barely won.... almost let teams come back.... ugh! The Falcons playoff game was the only one that wasn't close lol

    My nervousness has fluctuated since the Giants game. I was pretty sure they'd win that one so I was a 10 footer to shoot 75 nervous. The final regular season game was worse because it was the Bears. I post a lot on a fishing forum and the flatlanders were spouting a lot of garbage about how the Bears would lay back a little. That made me OMG what if something weird happens and they lose nervous.

    Then the Eagles game I was feeling pretty good. I just didn't think they could take the Pack after how both teams had been playing for the weeks leading in to it. And Vick just didn't deserve a playoff win. So I was maybe a little "Hey the boss wants to see you nervous" when you think you just did a good job.

    The Falcons game I was confident. They didn't have a defense that worried me. I was kind of where's the next exit I need to take a Cutler pretty soon nervous.

    The Bears game was I'm Roethlisbergering bricks nerve wracking from Thursday on. There was really no reason to think the Bears could win with their lousy offense and QB'ing, but hey it was the Bears in Chicago. That was a pretty edgy couple days.

    This week has been terrible. The Steelers will be the best of the bunch the Pack has played. There's not going to be much room for error. They can't fumble after a nice completion, they can't drop that quick slant for a 1st down, they need to grab and hold on to the errant pass from Roethlisberger, they can't bungle the clock management, etc., etc., etc.

    I'm getting obsessive.

    I'm the same way. While I calm myself down telling myself how good our team is and that it's their year, I then start to realize we're facing a tough *** steeler team and I get nervous again.

    "The Pittsburgh Steelers are a fine blend of ballet and brute force. There are31 teams in pro football and then there are the Pittsburgh Steelers" ~Steve Sabol-NFL Films


    As always,the Steelers are another story. They are gritty, grimy, pick-axe tough and dangerous. Are they living under a bridge? Who really knows? Are those self-made prison tattoos? Who Really knows? Is the Steeler Defense joking about the mix of what looks like blood and dirt on that shovel in the back of the pickup? Again... Who knows? You don't mess with the Steelers because they are that crazy,knuckle dragging rough guy who chugs grain alcohol and looks like he could snap at any moment.You don't mess with "that" guy.You don't talk smack or piss him off.
