Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

Still hasn't completely sunk in that I'll be on the sidelines for this game. Bucket list...check.

Pittsburgh has a granite wall for a run defense...but a secondary (sans Troy) that can be passed on, a'la New England. Good for the Packers, 'cause even James Starks is no Ryan Grant. If the Packers O-line can keep Rodgers safe from the Blitzburgh attack, he'll find somebody open.

Packer DBs are absolute BALLHAWKS.

GB gets a little revenge for the 1-point loss at Heinz Field last year. Packers 24, Steelers 21.

Pics to come on Facebook.

Congrats on being on the sidelines. How much extra security requirements are you going to have to deal with compared to even a conference title game?

Remains to be seen. I expect a LOT. The NFC Championship wasn't much different than your average NFL regular-season road game.

Green Day is playing? Oh, wait...you said Green Bay. I think that Pittsburgh has a better team, so they'll win it.

Too bad there won't be any cheerleaders at the game since neither team has a cheer squad.

Not exactly true. The Packers have had the UW-Green Bay and St. Norbert College squads, all in Packer gear, on the sidelines for years.

Which would probably make the Pack the only NFL team with some MALE cheerleaders.

Dunno if any of 'em are going to the Super Bowl.

Packers, 27-20.

Oh, and no cheerleaders for the Packers this year - the team issued a statement that the cheerleaders "are unique to Lambeau Field and are not involved in road games".

Bill Plaschke, of the LA Times and ESPN's Around The Horn, begs to differ.

    Gimme an I-R-O-N-Y!!

    The upcoming Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium, home of the world's most famous cheerleaders and monument to all things poufy and glittering, will make history for a different reason.

    There will be no cheerleaders.

    The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers are two of the six NFL teams that do not employ cheerleaders, and the NFL said Thursday that they have no plans to bring in ringers.

    It will be the first time in the Super Bowl's 45 years that the game will contain no sis, no boom and no bah.

Notice the bolded statement says that they do not employ cheerleaders. I would bet that the college cheerleaders are unpaid, thereby making both statements correct.

Well they had to have a S.B. in NY so freak-in bad, Have they seen the money Dallas is losing because nobody is going out in this beautiful cold weather. Thank God Jerry Jones Stadium has a roof now because the roads are a mess in Dallas right now. Imagine a couple of years in NY.

Yeah, but New York/New Jersey knows how to manage city services in cold weather. Dallas uses sand instead of salt (salt is illegal for some reason) and takes a "Wait a day or two. Things will get better." approach to the weather.

...and not because I hate the Packers or love the Steelers... just because every game I think is going to be close ends up in a rout. And I originally thought the Packers would win a close one... so I just went completely opposite.

I really think that Pouncey's injury is a dealbreaker for the Steelers.

By the way, revisiting an earlier topic, a Packers cheer squad WAS on the sidelines of Super Bowl XXXI (which aired a couple nights ago on NFL Network) - John Madden publicly casting his MVP vote for Favre is as embarrassing as it was 14 years ago, even if I still have trouble recalling Desmond Howard's name.

Here's the thing about Pouncey being out. The Steelers' pass protection already plays at close to a D- level and make their hay from Roethlisberger ducking out of the way, so it's hard for that to go from worse to worse. Missing Pouncey means they can't do athletic pulls with the center getting downfield.

I'm in Dallas for this godforsaken game so forgive me if I'm not here afterwards to be like "OMG" or "congrats" or "RIP me in a largescale terrorist attack."

You think the Pack will get a safety? Even with Maurkice out, it's a stretch.

9-6 Steelers. Seriously. I sense a defensive struggle.

The Steelers offensive line played the best game of the year in the AFC Championship after Pouncey went out. Sometimes I think experience is overrated but it's not with the Steelers. They haven't just been in this situation before, they play better in these situations. Same thing with the pass defense. They were ranked 16th - 19th most of the season then the last few weeks with the playoffs on the line they jumped to 12th.

On the flip side a lot of people are underrating the Steelers offense. This isn't your father's running Steelers. They throw the ball first. Big Ben passed for more yards per game than Rodgers this season and threw half as many interceptions. Wallace/Brown/Sanders is as fast as any trio in the league. They have a clear advantage at running back and the Packers are awful at covering the tight end. If I was a betting man I'd put money on any bet involving Heath Miller in this game.

I'm starting to think Cam Newton was the greatest college football player. Auburn was not good before him, and they aren't good after him. The top of the SEC is still very dominant, but the depth of good teams isn't there.
