Agreed.

Rodgers is certainly more athletic than Ben and can get out of the pocket quicker and faster, but he is very easy to bring down once he is wrapped up, even with one man on him. Ben is a freight train and has pretty nifty foot-work for a big dude, he outweighs Rodgers by an easy 20 pounds (Rodgers: 225; Roethlisberger: 245) but can still get out of trouble and deliver downfield with ease.

Rodgers and Ben play similiar style but Green Bay's offense simply is more pass-heavy, even though Pittsburgh has turned into a pass first, run second team. Ben and Rodgers are pretty even when it comes to style, but Ben certainly is tougher in build, which should bode well against a team that's going to come after him.

Yeah. Finley being out will be huge. I'm not sure the Pack are going to do much at all on the ground. No concern there.

Something that I look forward to is seeing the difference in the secondary this go-around with Polamalu out there instead of Carter. Tyrone is single-handedly responsible for what? 14 points when they played last year? I mean, he was just trying to make a play, but instead found himself out of position on two plays that led to points.

Let's hope whatever Troy has been nursing, whether it be ankle or achilles, is healed and well so he can shine on the fast turf in Arlington.
