This should be a pretty good SB, especially since it looks like the two best teams in the league actually made it. Seattle is the scariest, least-respected #1 seed that I can remember in a while.

Whoever doesn't think this team is legit hasn't been watching. They've got tough defense, an amazing offensive line, the NFL MVP, and a smart, athletic QB who had enough balls to predict an overtime win at Green Bay. Maybe it didn't work but you have to love the guy's confidence.

Pittsburgh has been playing just as well as the 'Hawks since the playoffs began and the Steelers have shown that they have just as tough defense, solid offensive line, and a young QB who could one day have a trophy case full of MVP's and SB trophies (a guy can dream, can't he?).

Two things that concern me as a Steelers fan: Seattle being able to run behind Walter Jones and the rest of the line and how well the Pittsburgh offensive line plays against the Seahawks defensive line.

If the Steelers can't figure out a way to slow down the run it's over. If the O-line doesn't keep Ben off his back, same story. Smart, Steelers football and a defense that's playing as well as it ever has since I've been watching have gotten the team this far. Let's hope they can do it one more time.

It's an old cliche, "this game was won in the trenches," but this game could really shake out that way.

I agree 100% with you, the matchups on both sides of the ball have the makings of a very good game. Let's hope both teams show up with healthy rosters and solid game plans to make SB 40 one to remember.

Make that 4. (Ok, quite a few now that I have read through this thread) Your boards are really civil. This is the first one for any team that has been I think. Besides the Seattle ones, perhaps, but we find it rude to even honk. Not that a few A-holes won't show up.

Less than Denver did I would say, sir.

Hey, there it is. Now we need people to come up with those rock solid reasons why, like "Hasselbeck might be gay"

Let the discussion begin

Saying Hasselback were gay, would be crossing the line, smack is cool, but nothing to gain by calling players out on their sexual preference , just to prove a point?

That's a fair annalysis. Neither team is to be taken lightly at all. If the Seahawks play the way they played against the Panther's....there isn;t a team in the NFL they can't beat....and the same thing can be said for how well the Steelers played thew Broncos. The fact is....who ever wins will have to make the fewest mistakes and have their absolute A-Game on the field for both sides of the ball.

Its going to be a fun match up for sure.

I have to say I am not a massive believer in schemes/ formations being a huge factor - like an earlier post stated - its all about the execution.

The pressure the Steelers have brought has been relentless during the playoffs - and it all starts with the 3 man line - Casey Hampton has had a big year at NT.

I believe that the Steelers are the more battle tested of the two sides and should react better to the high pressure situation of the Superbowl - they will benefit from playing in a much stronger conference.

With Ben upgraded to 'Elite' status I think the Steelers can also play from behind if the scenario arises - the last couple of years they havent had that capability.

The only slight cloud on the horizon would be that the Steelers played such an awesome game against the Broncos that they might have peaked early - I dont see how that particular game could have worked out any better for them - they certainly had more than their fair share of the breaks aswell.

Now, do you have any good seahawk boards to suggest for us steeler fans?
www.seahawksal.com is the best seahawks forum around. Fair warning, though. It's a family board, and they take that very seriously.
