Pick time

Well I guess I have to commit to who will win the Super Bowl on Sunday in Dallas. First things first...this is a great match-up. A lot of so called experts are looking pretty good after picking 1 or both of these to make the title game. I think this is a game that will be decided in the 4th quarter.

Now for the pick. I like the Packers. Green Bay has throttled all their competition in the post-season and has been playing due or die football for the past month and a half. Remember the Packers needed to win their final 2 regular season games to guarantee a postseason berth.

Look for the Packers to try and spread out their offense running 4 and 5 receivers to blunt the Steelers blitz defense. This will put the game on the back of Aaron Rodgers. So far the Green Bay QB has been a post-season stud. I don't think the Packers are going to run the ball. I also think the Packers defense is going to blitz from the ends to contain Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers offensive line is porous at best and without starting Center Maurkice Pouncey could be really in trouble. Wouldn't be surprised if Roethlisberger is sacked 3 or 4 times in this game.
