I keep reading thoughtful thoughts on how nervous some are. Some think we can win. We might win. They are nervous about the game. Come on!! Really?
We are the best team year after year!! We have won more Super Bowls than any team, Tied with most appearances, and have been to more Divisional Playoff games. We win with class!!! We are The Pittsburgh Steelers. Talk smack with confindence.!!!:tt04: If you live in Wisconsin, you should wear Steeler gear everyday!!! Don't be quiet!!! Talk like you've been there before. We are the Pittsburgh Steelers Fans!!!! :tt03: Think Braveheart people!!! We get less respect every year!! The greatest coaches come though here, and are ignored. Great QB's ignored!! Keep those insecurities off the site for awhile. We are in the GAME, and the Packers will choke. Lebaeau will figure it out, and Ben will do what he does to score points. # 43 will make a play when we need it. Bank it!!!
I'm going to wash off the Blue paint off my face and get off my horse now!!! :helmet::helmet:

My 76-year old Dad was watching the Cardinals-Steelers Super Bowl at a casino. When the Cardinals scored late, he went upstairs to his room.

My attitude was, "We went 85 yards against the Ravens in the regular season for the game-winning TD, so surely we can do it against the Cardinals."

Yep, we should have confidence!!!

Legacy pretty much has nothing to do with the outcome. It's on what can be achieved on that given day.

The Steelers won't be facing an aging wonder QB this time nor a team powered by cafe lattes.

They will be facing an elite QB in his prime and an elite defense with know-how on how to attack and destroy Pittsburgh's slow, lumbering linemen.

It will take ingenuity, will-power and luck to beat this team. This is a Braveheart moment as the Steelers are considerably out-manned on this one. I just don't know if this team can survive the loss of yet another offensive lineman. The loss of Pouncey hurts, bad. The receivers are young and inexperienced as well. Can they get open against an experienced group? The Steelers defense has its weaknesses as well especially against the pass. Just watch NFL playbook. They showed how the Jets carved up the secondary with relative ease due to mis-communication on the Steelers part. As far as ranking the SB teams to get in, IMO this is the worst Steelers team that I've seen with this corp group which is not to say that they are bad, they are just aren't as good as the other two clubs they fielded in the SB. Quite frankly, I don't know how they are getting it done but they somehow find a way. I think home field advantage really saved their bacon.

At this point, I just want to see them play well and put up a good fight. And if they win, I will personally consider it one of the greatest upsets of all time considering the circumstances.

And there's one more thing...at the end of the Jets game, Ben took a knee and looked pretty emotional. It made me wonder if he had put all this extra pressure on himself to get to the SB for redemption sakes. That title game was the worst game I have seen from Ben in years. It was reminiscent of his first title game and his first SB experience when nerves got the better of him. Now it looks as though he has gotten over that hump. Maybe now, he'll be at ease and just relax, play and throw like I know he can. I have seen Ben single-handily win games for the club because of his effort, will and skill. I've seen Ben be super-sharp. I'm hoping to see this Ben in this Super Bowl now that the ordeal of getting there is out of the way.

Well...........glad to hear it. But you sit on your can watchin the game. The boys in Black and Gold play it. Gotta give them one heck of a salute for making it so far.... so banged up. They are a beat up bunch....lets hope they can dig down deep and win it on guts and pride.

But couch potatos in any number dont win the game. But man it will be one of the best ever if they can hand it to GB with so many key parts not at 100%.

Here we go Steelers!!! Kick their stinkin teeth in!!!

last time i checked the packers did not play tha ravens and they're way better than atlanta
and the jets are way better than chicago so how can you say that if we win it would be an upset :doh:

you say we're not gonna face an aging QB but an elite QB in his prime
you say their deffense is an elite deffense
well i got news for you
our Qb is just as good as theirs or better (dont forget he has 2 superbowl rings)
and OUR deffense is betters than theirs so IMO i would call it anything but an upset :noidea:

It's not that I don't have a pair, I'm just intelligent enough to know that this isn't going to be some walk in the park, and if by chance it is, then so be it my analysis of the packers will be wrong. But I can see what dangers the packers present and I don't need black and gold colored glasses on to intelligently discuss and view what damage the packers can do both offensively and defensively. And just because I believe the packers can present some problems doesn't mean I don't have a pair, but then again I've never been the boisterous, "We're gonna kick your arse!" type fan.

I prefer the humble approach, and while I believe my team can and will win on gameday, I'll give the packers an over the top review knowing that on any given Sunday the packers can perform above their standard and so can the STEELERS!

Elite defense? The Steelers have the elite defense. The Packer defense can't stop the run and the offense is 1 dimensional because they can't run the ball. The 2 things that win Championships most are run and stop the run and we do both much better than the Packers. Sure I'm nervouse, but we are the better team here.

I just watched the Jets game again this morning.

Legursky got mauled. He got pushed backwards all game. This lead to your running game falling apart in the 2nd half. Down by 24 the Jets defense seemed to play tired and old, they seem to almost give up. Your running yards in the 2nd half came from the Jets playing bad defense, not because you were playing the run well. Still you couldn't score again on them. The two weeks to get Legursky up to speed won't help much in his play. He's very undersized with much shorter arms than Pouncey. His skill set is a big step down, losing Pouncey should really worry Steelers fans.
Your O Line +Packers

Bens a stud. He's the stud they call on to sire other studs. Rodgers is a brain surgeon with a cannon for an arm. Mirror images, yours is much stronger, mine is more accurate. But Rodgers is fragile. This worries Packer fans.
Quaterbacks +Steelers

Any team can beat any team on any given Sunday. That's why we play the games. The Steelers have weaknesses, I can see them watching the Jets game. The Packers have weaknesses, if you watch our games you'll see them also.

Your the BEST the AFC has, we're the BEST in the NFC. I love talking stats, but at this time of year they mean nothing. In the Super Bowl what counts is health, execution, and desire.

A few years ago the talking heads said our O-line was terrible and they couldn't hold off the cardinals pass rush. They said we couldn't do this or couldn't do that, but when it mattered the most THEY GOT IT DONE!

But you forget one thing, one thing that can not be measured, it can not be weighed, and it counts more than anything else...HEART! And from what I've seen from the Steelers is nothing but heart, and oh yeah, determination!

Good points, but don't forget that Legursky was slated to be the starting center until Pouncey came along. As for the Jet game, up until that point, Legursky was used as a fill-in for fullback more often than not and as I've said before, he did OK for a guy who had no idea he'd be playing center that day.

Ben's mobility is a big factor in minimizing Pouncey's absence. If Ben were a pocket passer who depended upon a solid line (or at least a solid center, left guard. left tackle) then Pouncey's injury would be more of an issue.

But Ben actually prefers to move around (I believe he sees things more three-dimensionally that way) so the idea of a weakened center position will put stress on our run game more than anything else and frankly, that hasn't been the most productive thing in our game all year -- even WITH Pouncey.

The way I look at Super Bowls is that unlike during the season, an injury or a change in game planning is something that a team has to adjust to for only that one game. So whatever has to happen as far as the X's and O's go, the team that can best manage that stuff just for this game, is the one with the advantage. So whatever Tomlin and Arians come up with as an alternative to having Pouncey in the lineup will be something that our offense has to manage for just 60 minutes.

And based on all the other things we've had to deal with this season, I'd say that that won't be too hard for them to handle.

Fellow Fans, Grow a Pair!!!

For reals.....all the experts seem to think they can talk the Packers into winning on February 6th. I am hearing nothing but negativity towards the Steelers everywhere I go, even from other Steelers fans.

Keep in mind these facts about Green Bay:

* In the last relevant meeting (end of 2009), we beat Green Bay 37-36, and that was with a broken defense that had no Polamalu and a run defense that went in the weeds a month prior when Aaron Smith went down.

* Finished 10-6 in the inferior conference, as opposed to the Steelers who finished 12-4 in the superior conference.

* Against common opponents this year, the Packers were less impressive than the Steelers.

--They let Michael Turner run all over them during the regular season
--They let Adrian Peterson run all over them during the regular season.
--They lost to Miami (this one is a wash--**** we won on a technicality).

* They LOST TO DETROIT.

* They LOST TO THER Redskins.

* So far in the playoffs, they beat:
--an overrated Atlanta team (we crushed them WITHOUT Big Ben)
--an inconsistent Eagles team
--a Bears team that has no offense whatsoever and a starting QB that quit halfway through the game

Don't get me wrong, this will be a good game, but when the dust settles, the Steelers are the better team. There is no factual evidence to base such predictions of a Green Bay blowout or victory upon right now. They are a mediocre team with a descent QB and a great pass rush, that has been playing "inspired football" against lackluster competition the last few weeks. They are the 2010 version of the 2008 Arizona Cardinals...

The Steelers just beat the Ravens after being down 14 points, they just beatdown the Jets, a team that just enjoyed huge victories over the Invincible Cheatriots and Peyton Forehead and the Colts, and we have no chance of wining this one by the sounds of it?

Both teams are where they belong right now, and both have a chance to win it. Both teams have critical injuries, both teams have an elite behind center, both teams feature great 3-4 defenses. There is no clear cut favorite in this game, no matter what the experts say.

This worries me.

In the Steelers games that I've watched Ben seems to run forward when pressured, but maybe this game thats where the pressure will be coming from.

Can we trade running games for a week or two?

HARTWIG would have been the starting center. They only cut him once Pouncry showed he was ready.

Legacy pretty much has nothing to do with the outcome. It's on what can be achieved on that given day.

The Steelers won't be facing an aging wonder QB this time nor a team powered by cafe lattes.

They will be facing an elite QB in his prime and an elite defense with know-how on how to attack and destroy Pittsburgh's slow, lumbering linemen.

It will take ingenuity, will-power and luck to beat this team. This is a Braveheart moment as the Steelers are considerably out-manned on this one. I just don't know if this team can survive the loss of yet another offensive lineman. The loss of Pouncey hurts, bad. The receivers are young and inexperienced as well. Can they get open against an experienced group? The Steelers defense has its weaknesses as well especially against the pass. Just watch NFL playbook. They showed how the Jets carved up the secondary with relative ease due to mis-communication on the Steelers part. As far as ranking the SB teams to get in, IMO this is the worst Steelers team that I've seen with this corp group which is not to say that they are bad, they are just aren't as good as the other two clubs they fielded in the SB. Quite frankly, I don't know how they are getting it done but they somehow find a way. I think home field advantage really saved their bacon.

At this point, I just want to see them play well and put up a good fight. And if they win, I will personally consider it one of the greatest upsets of all time considering the circumstances.

And there's one more thing...at the end of the Jets game, Ben took a knee and looked pretty emotional. It made me wonder if he had put all this extra pressure on himself to get to the SB for redemption sakes. That title game was the worst game I have seen from Ben in years. It was reminiscent of his first title game and his first SB experience when nerves got the better of him. Now it looks as though he has gotten over that hump. Maybe now, he'll be at ease and just relax, play and throw like I know he can. I have seen Ben single-handily win games for the club because of his effort, will and skill. I've seen Ben be super-sharp. I'm hoping to see this Ben in this Super Bowl now that the ordeal of getting there is out of the way.
