Should be a good one. When Dom Capers was the Steelers' DC, he and his defense were a large part of what got me really hooked on the Steelers. Then LeBeau came in and took it to an even higher level. The 2 best DCs I've ever seen, hands down. With all that said, the Steelers' talent level on D is much much higher, since they are great across the board except CB. The Packers are lacking on the DL and LB. Both have stars on both sides of the ball though, so it comes down to whoever can make the huge plays.

I see the Packers as having the edge passing, since they do so many quick slants that are hard to cover, and are one of the Steelers' weaknesses as a rule. But they won't be able to run the ball at all, and I don't see Bulaga stopping The Woodman, or Clifton stopping Silverback either for that matter.

On the flipside, I definitely think the Steelers will be able to run on the Packers. The main question is if they can block Matthews. No one else on the Packers is worth noting in the pass rushing aspect, so they could just keep someone in to chip him to neutralize him unless he does a stunt/loop. Woodson hasn't been what he was last year, but is still good. Obviously their other young CBs have emerged this year but are still succeptible to being beat by a veteran.

So, as always, it comes down to pressuring the QB for both teams. Protect Ben and pressure Rodgers, Steelers win. If Ben gets killed and Rodgers gets time, Pack wins. With all that said, if Aaron Smith and Maurkice Pouncey play and everyone else is healthy, I think the Steelers are the more complete team and should win. Packers can't run the ball, or stop the run, even close to as well as the Steelers, just like today's game against the Jets. That makes them one dimensional and more vulnerable to defeat.

Man if you don't think the Packers have any other pass rusher than Matthews then you haven't been watching them much. They have been getting some great penetration since like week 16, especially when the playoffs started. They'll be all over that Steeler O line.

Same goes for running the ball, Starks has been getting the job done. But I still can't believe that the Packers are actually favored. I would have thought it would be the other way around.

@GreenTitan I'm not talking only about you, I'm talking about everytime you heard BS about how a team stole a game because refs called penalty. I'm sick of it too but the 70s are over with good hard hitting football when the game wasn't only about WR and QB. I would like to go back to this. The refs calls it on everyone.

And now the fate of the universe hangs in the balance in this battle of good vs evil. Help us, Jedi Master Rodgers! You're our only hope!

May the force be with you in your battle against the evil Darth Rapistberger.

Conspiracy theories are only cool when they involve the Patriots supposedly cheating to win every single game they every played, right?
