Super Bowl XLV: What Will Be the Image of the Big Game?

0 of 5

    All the great Super Bowls have one image that is forever associated with it.

    John Elway's helicopter dive in Super Bowl XXXII, Tyree's helmet stab in Super Bowl XLII, Holmes' tiptoe catch in Super Bowl XLIII, and the list goes on and on and on.

    In the coming years we will find out that Super Bowl XLV will be no different.

    There will be that one snapshot that people will look back at and say "Wow," when remembering Super Bowl XLV.

    So what'll it be?

Nick Collins' Pick-Six

    It was still early in the game, but when Nick Collins took a first quarter interception to the house to make the game 14-0, you just got that feeling that Green Bay was the team of destiny.

    And when he got down on his knees and put his hands in the air he created an image that will not be soon forgotten, but will it be the image of the game?

Donald Driver Party's With The Lombardi

    To many Packer fans, this is the one.

    Donald Driver has been such a great Packer for such a long time, and in addition to that he's probably one of the nicest men on the planet (really).

    I know fans who were praying to God that the Packers won this one just for Driver.

Greg Jennings Seals The Deal

    Although the Packers hadn't technically put the game on ice yet when Greg Jennings caught his second touchdown pass of the game early in the fourth quarter, it was pretty obvious at this point that Green Bay just would not be beat on this day.

    Jennings did a great job on this catch which could very well be the defining moment of both Aaron Rodgers' career and Super Bowl XLV.

Charles Woodson Becomes Immortal

    Charles Woodson is one of the NFL's true good guys, and the fact that he still had yet to win a Super Bowl at this point in his career was no doubt upsetting.

    The only thing more upsetting than that was the fact that he broke his collarbone during the game, he was the heart and soul of this team.

    Woodson says he broke down and cried after he found out he couldn't come back into the game. He also gave a historic halftime speech according to several sources and as we find out more and more information about that this picture will only become more and more legendary.

    Here you have the favorite right now. 

    Matthews and Rodgers celebrating with the Lombardi and the Championship belt, what a moment. 

    This would be my pick, but I have been wrong before. I guess we'll have to just wait and see.
