Offense - Pretty damn even. Both quarterbacks (Big Ben and A-Rod) are really good at their position. A-Rod has proven himself to be a duel threat at QB while Big Ben has that cannon of an arm. Both sides are loaded with their share of receivers and running backs. Very hard to give an edge here.
Defense - Slight edge to Pittsburgh. The Packers don't give up too many big plays. But the Steelers have been stingy against the run, meaning you have to put all the pressure on the quarterback. And, as you know, if you put the game in the QB's hands, you're bound to lose almost all the time (but good QBs handle the pressure nicely). The Steelers can defend the pass well, however the Packers have one of the best passing attacks I've seen so the corners and safeties will have their hands full.
Coaching - Pittsburgh. Mike Tomlin has won it all two years ago, and Mike McCarthy has never been there. Nuff said.
With my very brief analysis out of the way (more detailed analysis coming soon), my pick to win Super Bowl XLV, in a very good game, is:
The Pittsburgh Steelers!
Who is your pick? BTW, I'm dying to see this one go to OT. It could very well do so. Little trivia for you - there has NEVER been an overtime in Super Bowl history.
