The Green Bay Packers will wear their green jerseys when they face off with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

The Packers are the home team, due to a rotation between the NFC and AFC teams every year.

They elected to wear the green jerseys, their traditional uniform when they play at Lambeau Field.

Coach Mike McCarthy said the green ones are the Packers' preferred jerseys.

"We're excited about that," he said.

The Steelers will wear their white jerseys, which they wore two years ago when they defeated the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII.

Also, the NFL announced that the roof at Cowboys Stadium will be closed during the game on Feb. 6.

I have to say, I'm pretty excited about this! The Packers have made a fatal mistake by going with their green uniforms. They've been on the road since the playoffs began wearing their white uniforms. In 2005, we stuck with our white uniforms and won the Super Bowl. They will not do what the Steelers did in 2005. Also, I kind of enjoy wearing our whites in Dallas. Just as Dallas enjoys that clean feeling, we will too! haha.. In the modern era of Steelers football all of our victories have been in the whites..

Lets go 4-0 in the whites! Man, as much as the whites have turned out well for us, it would have been GREAT to see those Black and Gold's glistening in those Dallas lights....

Does anyone know what Jersey the Steelers will be wearing in Super Bowl XLV?

I heard somewhere that they alternate each year between AFC & NFC on who will wear DARK, and who will wear LIGHT?

In Super Bowl 43 the steelers were suppose to wear Black, but were given the option to wear White?

Does the higher Seed get to decide?

Any thoughts??

Oh yeah, "HERE WE GO STEELERS" "HERE WE GO":tt02:

I believe its the AFC's turn to be the home team. Last year was NFC.

I had the same reaction until I realized that 2 similar threads were merged. That's why some posters sound like they haven't read the whole thread.
