The Pittsburgh Steelers, who are back in the Super Bowl once again, face a tough challenge this time against the high-flying offense of Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
Both teams have played outstanding thus far into the playoffs, and deserve their spots in the Super Bowl.
Unfortunately, only one team can come out as champions, and that team should be the Pittsburgh Steelers.
If it wasn't for the huge amount of experience and good fortune the Steelers have had in the Super Bowl already in the past half-decade, I would say this game is essentially even.
Ben Roethlisberger has proven hes a great quarterback under the pressure of the Super Bowl, and he wants nothing more than to grab his third championship ring.
Not only this, but all of Pittsburgh's veteran stars like Troy Polamalu, James Harrison, and their coach Mike Tomlin have a ton of combined Super Bowl experience, which doesn't bode well for the Packers.
The old steel curtain
Pittsburgh fans could always count on their team to be a tough force on the defensive side of the ball. The 1970 defensive team was nicknamed,"The Steel Curtain," because they were almost impossible to score against.
Although this year's Steelers squad isn't as good as it was in the 70's, they do lead the league with the least rushing yards allowed, and their pass defense isn't too far off.
The Steelers have played excellent thus far into the playoffs, and they should be able to continue this play in the Super Bowl.
Already having two Super Bowl titles under his belt, Roethlisberger has his sights set on his third. Throughout his career he has played tremendously under the pressure of the playoffs.
The Green Bay Packers defense is no laughing matter, and expect Clay Matthews to try and make his presence felt early on. They should be able to contain Roethlisberger, but I don't think they can stop him.
The Packers secondary will be a tough challenge for the receiving core of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and they'll need to rely on the speed of their wide-outs to create open space.
Mike Wallace is one of the fastest guys in the league and he has proven he can make big plays on his speed alone. Look for him to get the ball early and often in this game.
Emmanuel Sanders is another speedy receiver who could come into play in this game, along with veteran Hines Ward.
Super Bowl 2011 will be a great one. The Steelers will come out on top early like they did against the Jets last week.
Green Bay will tie it up early in the second half on defensive play, but the Steelers will pull ahead late in the game to take the victory 24-21.
MVP: Ben Roethlisberger
