Default Rodgers needs to be hit ... Hard!

I saw a clear difference in Rodgers before and after the hit by Peppers.

Like most pass happy QBs, Rodgers does not like to be hit and I would make it a part of our early game plan to tag him at least twice in the first quarter. Even if we are penalized 15 yards for those hits, I think it will be well worth the investment for the rest of the game.

I don't think it's playing dirty. It's just football.

I doubt it would ever happen because that's just one of those unspoken sportsmanship rules that the players would never do. Let's hope LeBeau and Co. can get to him because, yes. I think you're right. Knock him around a bit, he'll become rattled.

Pass-happy QBs? As opposed to QBs that don't like to pass?

I would like to see him get hit legally, and very hard. I'm hoping its on a scramble and timmons pushes him OOB into a bleacher. See how much he does that gay title belt celebration nursing a sore shoulder

I dunno. I have always been entertained by the belt celebration. Cracks me up. Though I hope he doesn't get the opportunity in XLV. I think it happens no matter how they score, so long as Rodgers is on the field when it occurs.

I'm a Packer fan, but I hate that celebration too. Apparently it's a bit of a tongue-in-cheek joke, though.

Two early 15 yards penalties for roughing the passer and the Steelers would receive a bunch of yellow flags for the rest of the game and lose the game.

Plus what you ask for is not the Steelers mentality. Now, hitting him clean and within the rules, I'm all for it.

Maybe the best team win, without key injuries and officiating blunders.

Best case scenario though, something makes me believe that the Steelers are going to be setting a Super Bowl record in penalties.

I'm all for getting legal hits in on Rodgers. There is a noticeable drop-off in his play/style when he has plenty of time to throw and room to run, against when he's getting banged around. Then again, this is the case for any other QB in the league not named Roethlisberger.

Ike Taylor has been saying it all along, they don't want us to win. Think about it, if the Packers win, what a Cinderella story that would be! The 6th seed, beating the best Super Bowl team of all time?

Plus come on, it's Green Bay, "Titletown." Why would the NFL NOT want the Packers ton win??

Not saying the refs will be against us come Super Bowl Sunday, but I certainly don't think we are going to get any gifts either. If we hit Rodgers after he gets any throws off, I'll expect to see a flag every time.
