This Sunday is Super Bowl 45 between two of the most historical teams in the NFL’s history. It will be the Green Bay Packers vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s taking place in Dallas at Cowboy Stadium and it’s going to be one for the ages.
Lets start with the Steelers. They have had the same core group of guys for years now with some new additions. Their defense is one of the best in the leagues if not the best. Despite my opinions of Big Ben he does get the job done and it’s very hard to stop him when he’s out of the pocket. They got a great run game and they are still hard hitting smash-mouth team they have always been.
Now onto the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have had a great offense for a long time now but their defense was their weakness until last year. When they hired on Dom Capers that all change. Their defense has been absolutely incredible this year. Rodgers has definitely proved to the new leader of that team and uses his offensive weapons wisely. They like Pittsburgh have been together for awhile now.
Both are historical teams and both have ties to each other. Green Bay Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers was the defensive coordinator in Pittsburgh from 1992-1994. He has two former Steelers coaching under him in Darren Perry, and Kevin Greene. Green Bay Coach Mike McCarthy is from Pittsburgh, and coached at the University of Pittsburgh from 1989-1992.
With all of this being said I am going to go with the Green Bay Packers edging out the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-21 to win the Super Bowl. Green Bay has gotten better every week since the start of the playoffs. Big Ben has taken quite a beating since the last few weeks of the season and if Green Bay gets to him, he might be in a world of hurt. It also does not help that the status of their Center is in doubt. It’s been Green Bay’s time for about four years now and they just had to get through the drama of Brett Favre to get there. I believe the Packers dynasty is back and they will prove so on Super Bowl Sunday.
