Tough one- I like both teams, although I could do without Ben.

Best hope- a good game that I am still watching by the 4th quarter.

I grew up watching the Super Bowls in the 80's and early 90's, when blowouts were the rule rather than the exception, so I really DO root for close games when I don't have a horse in the race...or this season, when our horse needed to be euthanized after the preseason.

For today's partying pleasure, we have created a couple dozen Jello shots, layered in team colors.

The cheese heads have lemon-lime with a hint of vodka, while the "black" cherry and lemon are imbued with rum. There's something like 125 Jello shots to go with the 200 chicken wings.

I'd like to see the Packers win, but I think the Steelers are the better team. My prediction, Steelers take it 30 to 21.

The larger question is: will I be able to restrain myself from hurling a beer mug through the screen on the sixth time FOX and the NFL insist on giving us a shot of the four assjack douchenozzle in the "never miss a Super Bowl club?"

Since there's no cheerleaders this year the network is going to need SOMETHING to use as a bumper for commercial breaks.

Last time I did jello shots, I fell into my neighbors cactus plant and never felt a thing. Evil contrivances of the debil I tell you.

As far as headlines go, this one isn't awful. No real dog in the fight, but the thought of Staubach handing the 7th to the Rooneys is too much to bear. Go Pack!

The butthurt will be epic in this thread no matter what happens, but most especially if the Steelers win. Even if I weren't a Pittsburgh fan I'd be rooting for them for that very reason.

But since I am a Steelers fan, GO STEELERS!

i was saying yesterday, vis-a-vis the whole:

BEN ROETHLISBERGER WEARS 7
THIS IS HIS 7TH YEAR INT HE LEAUGE
THIS WOULD BE THE STILLERS' 7TH LOMBARDI
BEN HAS BEATEN THE RAVENS 7 CONSECUTIVE TIMES

7 coincidence being beaten into the gournd, that if they win, Goodell should have the Lombardi Trophy in a box on the podium, go Morg Freeman, and make ben whine, "WHAT'S IN THE BOOOOOOOOX? WHAT'S IN THE MOTHERfarkIN' BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOX?"
 
2011-02-06 11:00:34 AM
Ligursky is going to get ate up by Raji, one of the more dominant (if not singularly best) NTs in the league; when Ligursky played two weeks ago he had to bad exchanges with Ben, one of which was a safety.....Wonder if Tomlin will keep an RB in the backfield for pass pro not just for Raji but the line in general.

but that goes back to Ben's innate ability to escape and make something from nothing.

Polamalo has not looked great int he past few games. He's ok but not the sideline to sideline maniac he usually is. but 2 weeks of rest.....dunno.

heath miller is intriguing....he had a monster game v Pack last year, something like 9 for 130 or some shiat. I think he'll get lots of time today, if for no other reason that to counter Packers speed rush / blitz off the edge. I think he has to have a solid game for the Steelers to have a shot. That really popular, "TE pass blocks for 3 seconds, releases to the flat for a 3/5/7 yard pickup" play, i think we'll see a lot of that today from him. heath is the X factor.

So. My pick. I DON'T CARE WHO WINS.

but i think the Packers win in single digits. I think a high scoring game by Super Bowl standards: 38-31 or some shiat like that. be shocked if either hits 40. The defenses are too good for that.

thing is, i think both teams will have at least 13 points off turnovers, be it pick sixes or TOs that end up with FGs. I think both defenses will be dialed in precisely to what the other does and both have shown they can get the ball back.

Pack, single digits. 38-31.

I'm in one of those playoff fantasy leagues in which you get to pick any player one time only. So far I'm in second, which has a payout. First place is 3X the payout for second and I'm 20 points behind. I won't get to see the leader's lineup until kickoff, but here's mine:

Roethlisberger, Ben PIT QB
Kuhn, John GBP RB
Mendenhall, Rashard PIT RB
Jones, James GBP WR
Ward, Hines PIT WR
Miller, Heath PIT TE
Crosby, Mason GBP PK
Steelers, Pittsburgh PIT Def

I hope to hell he blew his Packers/Steelers wad early. Third place is distant so it looks like I'll get something....

/here's to a good game

Drove into Pittsburgh yesterday and they were playing a song on the radio called "Troy is not a Lady" to the tune of "Dude looks like a lady." Seriously.

My brother and father actually bit the bullet and bought tickets this year and flew into Dallas last night. They're super psyched but wish the halftime show was a band more exciting.

I like your analysis...

Over 46

And I went back and checked
Will a punt hit the scoreboard during the game?

tanks bruddah. pretty cool 'games within the games' in many ways for this game. 3-4 vs 3-4, great blitzing teams, game changers (matthews, polamalu/harrison).....Raji v Legursky is one huge X Factor, Heath vs Pack second level another....

saw where the Steelers just signed a practice squad cat as Legursky's backup just a day or so ago. So this is Legursky's first start at center, and his backup was on the taxi squad.

not looking good for Ben.

and if Rodgers pulls it out, he equals Brett Favre's SB ring total. For all the love Brett got as a Packer, he only brought the hardware home once.

Rodgers is perceived inexplicably as a veteran -- albeit a young one -- finally living up to his potential. Huh? He has only one more regular season start than Atlanta's Matt Ryan. Look it up.

Games total/Games started

Rodgers: 54/47
Ryan: 46/46

pretty astonishing.

I'm glad the thread for this came out rather early, and I'm glad I got TF till Friday so I could at least post in this right now, because I won't be home to continually post here.

Just wanted to say it was a very entertaining set of threads this season, and I collected (and even created) some real fun images this season.

I want to join my fellow STILLERS fans for what is going to be an amazing game.

If it was anything like last season's nailbiter between these two teams, then I think EVERYONE will be in for a good time.

Let's review these great pics from this season.

Also, I did this one, necessary 4th quarter equipment for all Steelers fans

Finally, made this one, with another Farker bringing the great quote at the end.

As a bonus, I didn't make this one, but I think this will be highly accurate for today.

Good luck to ALL involved, and have fun with the ads and the food and whatever else!

Thanks for a great NFL season FARKERS!

I am thinking that Superbowl experience will play a big role.
Big Ben has been to 2 superbowls and 25 Steelers have played in at least 1 SB...I think the total number of Packers to play in the SB is 2.

Lunch is served. Hot Pastrami and Swiss on Kaisers, some zesty pickles and chips, and a cold Shiner Blonde. Laying down the proper foundation for maximum alocohol intake is important. Pizza and wings at halftime. Titos Handmade Vodka/Tonics and Johnny Walker Red on the rocks should hit the field about 5:00 pm.

yeah i heard that "27 steelers vs 2 packers" thing.....i have never believed in the "OMG YOU HAVE TO HAVE BEEN THERE BEFORE" argument as it relates to the NFL. I do tend to agree with it in series-based playoffs (NBA, MLB) becauase of the mental grind on the highest stage, but....not football. excuse me, BUT NOT IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE!

arizona was waht, 2:30 away from winning a ring but for Ben making an incredible play. Arizona had Kurt and maybe another couple of players, 2-3 that had played in a SB.

it is a quick, easily digestible, nutritionally useless stat in my book. Fills the air for 4 seconds.

I don't know why people think "Super Bowl experience" is such a big factor. Maybe it is, I don't know, but I don't think so. I have no evidence either way, but here are the last 10 SB winning QBs:

Super Bowl XXXV: Trent Dilfer, Baltimore Ravens
1st Super Bowl

Super Bowl XXXVI: Tom Brady, New England Patriots
1st Super Bowl

Super Bowl XXXVII: Brad Johnson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
1st Super Bowl

Super Bowl XXXVIII: Tom Brady, New England Patriots
2nd Super Bowl

Super Bowl XXXIX: Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Third Super Bowl

Super Bowl XL: Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers
1st Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLI: Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts
1st Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLII: Eli Manning, New York Giants
1st Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLIII: Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers
2nd Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLIV: Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints
1st Super Bowl

So, basically, Brady and Roethslisberger repeated, but for the most part, 1st timers do just fine. In that same time period, Peyton lost once, Warner lost twice and Brady lost once, all after being there before. Obviously not a scientific study, but I personally don't think "Super Bowl experience" means anything.

I see your point but I think the fact that the Steelers have 25 players on their roster vs the Packer's 2. Considering that this is the "big" game with all the trappings that entails has to mean something.

Just take last year's game as an example. Saints had almost no experience, Colts had a ton. Again, I have no good comprehensive study to cite, but I don't think it means anything at all.
