What is with all this hype for Rodgers, here are his numbers in the NFCC.  If he has those numbers in this game, we win, period.





                   Comp Att Yards CP   long   TD Int Rat    Rush Yards Av TD
@CHI W 21-14  17   30   244 56.7   26    0    2 55.4    7        39 5.6   1

Just pissed watching ESPN, every analyst wants to blow Rodgers. I would like to watch some coverage that is unbiased.  Convinced everyone is just jealous.

Cannot wait to serve some crow come Monday morning.

Media types picky sexy offenses.  Guess they figure the Packers are sexier.  I think 7/8 USA Today writers went Pack. 

Can't go with one iso stat though, Brink.

Ben's AFCC stat line is worse:  10-19-133-0-2, 35.5 PR.

Sample size, tho.

Doubt Ben's stat line from the AFCC game would scare anybody either.

Edit:  Damnit.  Too slow.

I agree, his numbers were pretty damn good this year.  I would love nothing more that a blow out, but we all know that will not happen.

Just for shits and giggles

BBR - 24-31 278 yards 2 TD's 1 int 1 fumble
Mendy 23 for 93 1 TD
Wallace 3 for 78 1 TD
Hines 6 for 68
Miller 8 for 84 1 TD
Woodley 2 sacks 1 FF
Harrison 1 sack
Troy 1 int

Steelers win 30-24

From everyone's favorite cunt.

Q: Are you ever making a Super Bowl pick in print or do I have to sit through one of your stupid podcasts to hear it?
-- D. Winston, Chicago


SG: No, I'm making a Super Bowl pick. Green Bay 37, Pittsburgh 27. Why? Because the Packers pulled a fast one on us this year. They probably should have been a 14-win juggernaut, but injuries and bad luck knocked them down to the wild card. They probably should have been remembered as one of those ridiculously fast, comically explosive, scary-in-a-dome passing teams on the level of the '99 Rams or '98 Vikings, but they were stuck playing in the NFC North. Even this week, they probably should have been favored by more than three against a banged-up Steelers team that ground out two less-than-impressive but gritty home playoff victories, but everyone's been so blinded by Big Ben stories and the possibility of another Pittsburgh dynasty that we talked ourselves into it being an even game. And maybe it will be. I just know I'm not going against Aaron Rodgers indoors. Not this year, anyway.

Oh, sure, the USA Today.  But who did Highlights for Children pick?

In almost every paper and every sports show, the majority of "so called experts" are picking Green Bay.

It's kind of nice for the Steelers to be underdogs this time, and have that chip on their shoulder, something to prove, etc.
But the only problem is, it still doesn't feel like we are underdogs. 

 I'm kinda hoping that the players are being reminded in practice that they are not suppose to win this game.

According to everything I'm reading, we're the favorites! Of course, I'm pretty much just reading the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Tribune-Review.
I love how the malls, grocery stores and restaurants in the Pittsburgh area are closing early tomorrow so everyone can see the game!
