The Pittsburgh Steelers versus the Green Bay Packers. It is a dream matchup between two of the NFL’s most popular and traditional teams in its most glitzy stadium to decide the champion of the league.
Ben Roethlisberger versus Aaron Rodgers. Two of the NFL’s best quarterbacks who can make plays in the pocket or on the run should provide plenty of offensive fireworks.
Dick LeBeau versus Dom Capers. These two both helped developed the Steelers defense with Bill Cowher back in 1992 now run a couple of the best defenses in the league. The chess match will be tremendous.
Mike Tomlin versus Mike McCarthy. One the Pittsburgh coach, the other a Pittsburgh guy. Both are outstanding young coaches with Tomlin trying to win his second Super Bowl while McCarthy is looking for his first.
The story lines are a plenty but thankfully all of the talk is nearing an end and game time is almost here.
Only one team will come out on top, adding to their proud tradition Sunday night, but neither will have anything to be ashamed of.
For Pittsburgh though, they would like nothing more than to have their season which began with Dick LeBeau being enshrined into the Hall of Fame and Ben Roethlisberger suspended and season filled with injured players, such as Aaron Smith, end in a Super Bowl title.
Here is how the Steelers can climb the “Stairway to Seven.”
