Default ESPN's John Clayton: Steelers vs Falcons in SB XLV

The ever-wise John Clayton from ESPN has picked the Steelers to face the Falcons in Super Bowl XLV. Since we already beat the Falcons in Atlanta (which he states is a difficult place to beat them and is why he's picking the Falcons), we should be able to melt "Matty Ice" once more. Wouldn't it be fitting for the Steelers to thumb their nose at the so-called "America's Team" and win their 7th Lombardi in Jerry's World?

D'OH!!! For some reason I kept thinking it was in Atlanta. Senior moment - I stand corrected. We can still beat them - regardless.

With Max going on IR we are going to need this O Line of second string players to step up and show why they are in the NFL if we are going to get to the big dance. I am very Thankful for Pouncey and Kemo right about now.

Everyone seems to be riding the Atlanta bandwagon train...

No one seems to be watching Green Bay...

They have a hard time closing out games. Their 3 losses came from games they were winning but let the other team back in and lost in the final minutes of the game or overtime.

Plus they have a ton of injuries. They are also in the division with the Bears who are ahead of them and since the NFC south will probably have 3 teams in the playoffs, Packers might get left out.

I reluctantly confess I do not get why the Steelers are the choice over the Ravens to represent the AFC.

My assumption is the loser of Steelers-Ravens in Baltimore is going to the playoffs as a wild card, which means the loser of that game is looking at going on the road for the playoffs and having to play the AFC North champ again, if at all, on the road.
Given that the Ravens should be favored in the December rematch Baltimore is the more likely Super Bowl candidate.

As for Atlanta, there is not yet a lot of enthusiasm - lots of empty seats for no show tickets that were sold for the Tampa game here last Sunday. Fans are excited about Thursday night against the Ravens - win that and the Falcons have some reason to be confident.

I still feel OK about my preseason Raven-Packers SB prediction.

sorry dan, but that type of brutal honesty and non-homerism will not be tolerated around here.

I agree. Even if I felt that way I certainly won't admit to it. Besides, the Ravens have to prove that they can win a winner take all game against the Steelers. We are their nemesis.
