Howdy Steeler Nation! I’m writing from one of the auxiliary press tables here in Dallas alongside SB Nation’s Packers blogger Brandon Benson of Acme Packing Company, and Joel Thorman, the NFL editor at SB Nation.com. It’s been a fun and crazy week here in Dallas. And after a long two weeks of waiting since the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the New York Jets in the AFC Championship Game, Steeler Nation is anxiously awaiting the kickoff of Super Bowl XLV.
Of all the people I’ve talked to this week, very few believe that the Steelers will win Lombardi No. 7. Instead, most media folks seem to believe that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ explosive offense will be too much for the Steelers to handle. I’m not in that camp though. I truly believe the Steelers will play well on both sides of the ball, particularly on defense.
Stay tuned here throughout the evening for more updates from Cowboy Stadium, and head on over to Behind the Steel Curtain for an ongoing conversation during the game amongst Steelers fans.
