Special Edition: Super Bowl Preview

It's back to the Super Bowl for two of the most famous franchises in the NFL. The Packers have left the memories of old number four behind and are getting rebirth with Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has had troubles with injuries this year but when healthy he has been the brightest QB in the NFC. And it's not just Rodgers who is charging Green Bay to a possible win. They get production from unknowns back James Starks, nose tackle B.J. Raji and Sam Shields. They they're are the old greats Greg Jennings and Donald Driver. The Steelers destroyed both the Ravens and the Jets by playing hard nosed defense. James Harrison is a playoff gamebreaker who always gets into the backfield. Rodgers will constantly have to avoid the huge number 92. They also have defensive tackle Casey Hampton who is a huge run stuffer. And don't count only James Farrior, LaMarr Woodley, Chris Hoke, Brett Keisel, Ike Tayor and Troy Polamulu. Just to name a few. On offense the Steelers aren't too bad eiter. Big Ben has options- explosive Mike Wallace and vet Hines Ward- and has played in two Super Bowls (both wins) compared to Rodgers zero. The run includes Rashard Mendenhall while the inconsistent O-Line must clear the way. It definitely will be close, but it's the time of the year when the Steelers own.
Steelers, 28 Packers, 23
