Super Bowl Predictions: SB Nation Bloggers That Picked The Steelers

We just gave you the opinions of some of the SB Nation bloggers that picked the Packers, mostly in the interest of equal time. But now that we've gotten that unpleasantness out of the way, we can focus on the SB Nation bloggers that picked the good guys.

Joel Thorman, ArrowheadPride.com: The Packers will pressure Ben Roethlisberger but he's too good outside of the pocket. The Steelers have been through this before and they win in a nailbiter. Steelers 27, Packers 24

Jason Brewer, BleedingGreenNation.com: I predict this one turns out like nearly every Steeler game I've watched. Their defense plays well to keep them in the game. Ben Roethlisberger plays crappy/mediocre for three quarters, then does something amazing late in the fourth quarter to pull it out. Steelers 24, Packers 17

Josh Kirkendall, CincyJungle.com: After much analysis, watching game tapes and interviewing various experts, CincyJungle.com predicts: Packers 37, Steelers 3 (Note: Josh actually predicts a 17-13 Steelers win)

John Bena, MileHighReport.com: In a game like this, there will come a time when Aaron Rodgers realizes he's in the Super Bowl. That moment could be the difference. Steelers 31, Packers 27

Kevin Ewoldt, HogsHaven.com: If there's one thing I've leaned in life, don't bet against Dick LeBeau or Vegas (the public is betting heavy on Green Bay so far). Steelers 27, Packers 24

Brian Galliford, BuffaloRumblings.com: The Packers are well-equipped to chip away at Pittsburgh and keep this game close, but the Steelers just find ways to win these games. Steelers 26, Packers 22

Craig T, BucsNation.com: My head says the red-hot Packers, as they match up perfectly against Pittsburgh's (relative) weaknesses. However, my gut says James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, Brett Keisel, and company will make enough plays and Big Ben will do just enough to win a close game. Steelers 24, Packers 21

Jaxon, CatScratchReader.com: Being an NFC guy and the fact my wife is a Packers fan I hope they win. So of course I have to consequently predict a Steelers victory. Steelers 27, Packers 24

From the last two posts, it seems like the bloggers are split 50-50, but Brian Galliford says that in total, the bloggers are pretty much in favor of the Packers. What that means, I don't know.
