Oh yeah, and it is a public poll, suckas! We can see who you voted for, so you can get served your nice dish of crow next Monday!;)


For the record, I want the Pack to win, but I think Pitt's experience is going to put them over the top.

31-21 Green Bay.

That is not a blowout.
This is a toss up game.
It will be tight until the 4th quarter, Rogers hits Jennings deep down the right sideline......"and there is your DAGGER!!!"

BTW--I am willing to wager on this contest!!

EX: If the Steelers win, I will admit I am a REDNECK.......if the Packers win, dnf must admit he is a progressive liberal!!!!:D

You wanna bet.....bring your badself on!!

I don't like either one (Cowboy Fan) but I'm rooting for the Pack but I picked the Steelers.

Packers are a 2.5 point favorite so......

I think the Packers will win straight up but, I like the Steelers plus the 2.5 points.
:cool:

Steelers are missing their fine young center (Pouncy).
B.J. Raji is highly motivated.

The center is the key to the run game, he has to get out on the MLB.
If he doesn't the running game changes.
Not that the Green Bay LB's are anything special.........:cool:

It is just too difficult to bet against a team with a QB that owns a pair of SB rings. If Rodgers is having a slightly off day, it could get ugly for the Packers. I think most of the Steelers know what it is going to take to win but then again, Rodgers was the best QB in the league this past season.

I give GB Offense the edge and I give the Steelers D the edge in this game. Special teams edge goes to Pittsburg and don't forget they are playing in a climate controlled facility.


I am curious where this game will wind up ratings wise. Without dance squads, the game better be a good one if the network wants to hold thier audience till the end. ;-)

On a side note Rodgers got asked a joking question about if it was hard to get tickets for everyone and how many people were asking by Terry Bradshaw, he missed the joke, his response was well each person gets so many tickets...explaining how many they get. It was funny he seemed a bit nervous but I have never seen his interviews before so I can't compare. Ben seemed pretty relaxed.

It's supposed to be brutally cold starting tonight until about Friday. Low teens and a wintry mix of snow, sleet and ice. Probably won't bother these two teams much since they're both from cold weather cities. Hope they can practice indoors.

My crew is rooting for the Packers but my money would be on the Steelers.

Are you familiar with GB's defense?
If so, where would you rank them??

I know where they ranked statistically in regard to points allowed.
Do you?

Points allowed;
Pittsburgh---allowed 232=14.5 pts per game/#1 in the league
Green Bay---allowed 240=15 pts per game/#2 in the league

Points scored;
Pittsburgh---375=23.4 per game
Green Bay---388=24.3 per game


BTW---Some people actually tune in to watch the football.........:rolleyes:

Until this year I wouldn't have cared who won. But the handling of Ben Rapesberger's indiscretions will have me pulling hard for GB. The Steelers are no longer a class franchise :(.

The Steelers finished #1 against the run, only giving up 3 yards per carry. Packers finished 18th with 4.7 yards per carry and Pouncey may play and hasn't been ruled out.

I'm not betting the game but, if I were I would have to take the underdawg Steelers and the 2.5 points. I would hate to bet against Rodgers who played the QB position the best this past season.

I think it is dead even.
Slight advantage to GB's perimeter speed.
(WR & DB's)

And I mean very slight.

I was thinking of wagering a limited edition Strormy Kromer cap to the winner. (did you see they're making Steeler/Packer hats?)

I'm not going to trash talk...there's no need for that.

But I will say respectfully.....we heard a midwest team talk about how Fran was UNSTOPPABLE! What was his total offense in SBIX? 110 yards? -17 at the half?

I know those are all old men, some NFL commentators....but the point is, we gotta wait and see. That's why they play the game.

Could be close, could be a blowout....in either direction. Who thought the Jets would beat the unbeatable Pats?

Why does everybody have to go back to Ben's bad decisions, also I do not remember him being found guilty of anything...but then again OJ didn't do it either...Ok I guess my argument is invalid based on the "if you have money you can make this go away clause"

You win this time Marvin but someday a rich person will be found guilty, but that wouldn't help my cause either...I give up, rich people get away with it all sadly. On a side note Kim K is mad a magazine showed a butt crack and nip, I find it odd she would be upset due to only being famous for a video with Ray J... That was way off topic but this is POTUS forums I felt it was appropriate.

Steelers by 3 in case you forgot.

WOW, I deleted those stats cause they didn't look good.

Rodgers plays well in domes.
That does not include the Eagles & Falcons playoff games either.

In life there are some decisions made that "brand" you :o .


also I do not remember him being found guilty of anything

Did you read the press? Even the favorable stuff was quite disgusting. Been to a few parties, that was a scene I didn't recognize.


..but then again OJ didn't do it either...

No one proved that he did ;-). What's the quote "the DA's office tried to frame a guilty person", only know one knows either way. The glove didn't fit, Johnny Cochran regards :).

The term Redneck is derogatory. The politically correct term is Appalachian Americans. Aaron Rodgers is on fire. Packers will roll.
