There’s a reason that these two teams are playing in this year’s Super Bowl, they are truly two of the best teams in the league.
With Aaron Rodgers under center for the Green Bay Packers for years to come, expect this team to be a Super Bowl contending team year in and year out.
The Packers also have the fourth youngest team in the league, with an average age of their players at 25.29 years old.
To go along with Rodgers (27 years old), they are loaded with youngsters, like promising rookie running back James Starks (24) to join him in the back field.
They also have playmakers Greg Jennings (27), James Jones (26), and Jordy Nelson (25) at the wide receiver position.
On the other side of the ball, the Packers have added the great talent of defensive lineman B.J. Rahi (24 years old), linebacker Clay Matthews (24), and cornerbacks Sam Shields (23) and Tramon Williams (27) either thorough the draft or through free agency recently.
This is a young team with enough talent to be contending for the Super Bowl each season, and if they lose in their match up with the Steelers this year, they will have not only the playoff experience, but also the hungriness of wanting to get back to the big game.
If the Green Bay Packers do win the game though, their opponents will be just as ready to take them down next year too.
What more can be said about the Pittsburgh Steelers?
They are one of the best run organization in all of football, as they continue to put out contending teams each season.
Having some of the best coaches in the entire NFL doesn’t hurt either.
They continue to have the best defense in the league each year, which puts them ahead of most other teams. You need strong defensive play in order to make a run at winning a championship.
To go along with that strong defense, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has his team in the Super Bowl for the third time in just six years.
Expect more appearances to follow; no matter if they win the Super Bowl this year or not.
