With three of the Packers' DBs going to the locker room before half with injury, you can probably safely adjust those scores up.

On the other hand, if the Steelers can't make adjustments to their offensive line, Ben. R has looked rather shaky - both decision-making and physically. He might not make it through the end if they don't.

Well. at least we're still in it. Not very promising so far but we were down by 14 to Baltimore and we pulled it off.

So there's still hope! And yeah, the Packers are depleted. So come on!!! Bring home that Lombardi!

Can't turn it over 3 times and expect to beat a good team. Almost doesn't get it done. Good season, congrats cheese-heads.

Sloppy. Sloppy game. Ben made godawful throws to open receivers - 2 to Wallace that could have been TDs, couple stupid interceptions, etc. And the funny thing is I think there was actually more pressure on Rodgers.

And really you just can't expect to make 3 turnovers to none against a championship-caliber team and walk away with the trophy.

Congratulations Green Bay, you earned it fair and square -nice clean game for the most part and no officiating debacles.

The rapist's mediocre 77.4 QB rating was far better than he played in the two SuperBowls that the Steelers won.

You are right. Ben became Neil O'Donnell from 15 years ago. A Choker.

True. But Seattle was god awful and Arizona almost won that one two years ago. Big Ben, meet your real role model: Neil O'Donnell. SB XXX CHOKER!

O'Donnell signed a really big-for-the-time free agent contract, so I bet he could deal with that :P

Come on, guys, keep it classy. No need to go around trash talking. Ben's no angel but everyone makes mistakes. I think Steeler Nation has generally treated the Packers with respect so let's reciprocate.

And Riviera, one bad game does not turn a renowned clutch QB into a "choker". I'm actually in Naples at the moment, you better watch it or I'll drive up there and we'll have some words. :wink:

That was one of the best Super Bowls that I have ever seen. I wasn't a big fan of either team, so I didn't care too much who won. It would have been nice if the Steelers could have played Polamalu.

Aaron Rodgers is the awesome. Having a championship belt with him up there is just ridiculously awesome. He was even better than his stat line, some very catchable balls were dropped.

I'll give the Packers credit, they played a hell of a game. However, I believe that the Steelers lost that game more than the Packers won it. The entire Steelers team choked when it counted. There were too many stupid penalties, no production AT ALL from Pittsburgh's secondary, and interceptions that were beyond retarded.
Heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it doesn't work, you can always hit them with it.

The Packers won because they capitalized on the Steelers mistakes.
Three turn overs for 21 points
Two key penalties for "half the distance to the goal" was huge.
One led to an interception for a touch down
And the other backed them up at their 13 with less than 2 minutes to go down six
