Super Bowl 2011: Pittsburgh Steelers Arrive in Texas
Super Bowl XLV is getting closer, a fact which has become that much more real with the Pittsburgh Steelers' arrival on site.
The Steelers' plane touched down at the airport in Dallas at approximately 11:30 a.m. local time. Owner Art Rooney Jr., head coach Mike Tomlin, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger were the first three Steelers to step off the plane, and the team gathered everything into a motorcade that proceeded to their headquarters for the week in Fort Worth. The Packers plane is scheduled to arrive later this afternoon.
A press conference, involving Mike Tomlin and a number of the Steeler players, is also scheduled this afternoon for the team to officially greet the local media. The team from Steel City arriving first might be a symbolic statement of confidence, as they are certainly the team with more experience on this stage. 25 of the players on the current Steelers' roster have Super Bowl experience, while only two of the Packers can say the same thing.
Those two players are cornerback Charles Woodson and defensive tackle Ryan Pickett. The experience factor could play a significant role come Super Bowl Sunday. Will any of the performances make this list? We'll have to watch to find out.
