Good vs. Evil.
It, along with romance, is the oldest plot line known to mankind. And sometimes, we get to see these battles unfold on the gridiron.
We were fortunate enough to have seen that at Super Bowl XLV.
The Green Bay Packers vs the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger, and his numerous "offenses," taking on Aaron Rodgers, looking for vindication against the 23 teams that passed on him in the 2005 NFL Draft.
The NFL's oldest, most loyal fan base against possibly the NFL's most hated fan base.
A team full of young upstarts against the guys who have been there before.
Packer linebacker Clay Matthews, the guy who has overcome many obstacles just to get into the NFL, against Steeler linebacker James Harrison, known throughout the league as its dirtiest player.
And this was just the last game of the season. In what may possibly be the last NFL season we see for quite some time, nothing disappointed.
Drama, intrigue, tight games, upsets, collapsing stadiums and foot fetish videos were just a few of the things we can bring from this season...if you want to.
So read on to find 10 reasons this NFL season was one to remember.
