That was a most unentertaining game. Thank God the better team won. The Bears are nothing

Admittedly, Packers and Steelers are the better teams respectively. Can't wait.

I hope it'll be close. But I think it'll be lopsided, more likely, there'll be 1 TD pass for each half. Then, either side make a regrettable mistake.

The colder it gets, the better it is for Green Bay Packers, I actually believed it!

The stadium is semi covered so the temperature won't be a big factor. Besides both are cold weather teams so there won't be an advantage either way.

Of course if they were to play San Diego or one of those, the colder the better .

Oh please, roof? ...like chicken wings in a Ziplock bag inside a freezer? Men, those joints are gonna get extra crispy and crunchy! Go Rodgers Go! ...well Ben, we all know about Ben but I would definitely keep an eye only on Mendenhall.

Ten Things I'll Be Watching For This Weekend
1. The quarterback battle. Ben Roethlisberger could cement his place among the immortals with a third Super Bowl win in his first seven years in the NFL, while Aaron Rodgers has been The Next Big Thing at the position since summertime. I wouldn't be surprised if either of these guys plays an MVP game and throws for 350 yards.
2. More points than most people think. The over-under on the game is 45. At my Tweetup in Dallas on Thursday night, a guy asked me my prediction of the score. "Pittsburgh, 33-27,'' I said. He gleefully said he was betting the over. Don't put that responsibility on me for losing the mortgage, but I will say I will be surprised, very surprised, if these teams don't score a combined 50 or more points.
3. Saturday's big labor meeting. In case you hadn't heard, this is the last football game for seven months ... or maybe quite longer. Judging by the harsh tone of the NFLPA's press conference Thursday, I doubt much will get done at the Saturday session, the first big meeting the two sides have had since Thanksgiving week.
4. Saturday's other big meeting. The 44 Pro Football Hall of Fame selectors gather Saturday in downtown Dallas to pick the 2011 class of enshrinees. I expect Deion Sanders to moonwalk in, and from talking to some of my peers on the committee, I'd say the next most-logical guy is Marshall Faulk. After that, it's the usual maelstrom. My best guess -- and that is all it is, because I am consistently wrong on this -- is that the other three slots (assuming we elect the maximum five modern-era candidates) will go to Richard Dent, Shannon Sharpe and NFL Films founder Ed Sabol. But if Cris Carter, Charles Haley, Andre Reed, Tim Brown, Curtis Martin, Dermonti Dawson, Willie Roaf or Jerome Bettis have their name called Saturday night on NFL Network when the class is announced, I will not be surprised.
5. How this area handles the worst weather in 20 years. Good timing, eh? This place feels more like Calgary than Texas. I went to four stores in the past 48 hours, looking for a true winter coat. Sold out, everywhere. Plows ... what plows? Salt? For roads you need Zambonis to travel on? Who needs salt.
6. How Green Bay defends Rashard Mendenhall. It's no secret that the Packers will put their 1,117 pounds of noseman beef -- Howard Green, Ryan Pickett, B.J. Raji -- in the lineup on first downs and obvious run plays. And I'd guess the Steelers will counter by throwing more on first down than they normally do. It'll be an interesting chess match.
7. The distractions will mean nothing. Ben Roethlisberger and friends out until 1 a.m. at a piano bar, singing, "Piano Man,'' was reported by TMZ the other day. I care nothing about it. Absolutely nothing. But in Super Bowl week, a 28-year-old jillionaire quarterback having a few beers with his friends apparently is news (and don't give me this idiocy that Roethlisberger shouldn't have done it because the last time he was in a bar publicly it was a bad scene). I love what Mike Tomlin said about it: "Anybody who cares anything about what is reported during Super Bowl week is nuts.''
8. Doug Legursky-B.J. Raji. A vital battle on the line. How will Legursky, making his first start at center, fare against the powerfeul lineman? I'll be inside Steeler practice as the pool reporter today.
9. The Black-Eyed Peas. Last month, in a Super Bowl planning meeting, Commissioner Roger Goodell asked, "Are they going to play that, 'I Got A Feeling' song?' " I should hope so. If they do, Sunday night's going to be a good night.
10. The game. We might not see another one for a long time. Savor what should be a great Super Bowl.

Wonder if the teams can handle the draught/drift as expertly as a LD or LCW can, hehe (this is, after all, Badminton Central)
A ESPN poll among it's experts/analysts/writers/hangers-on came up with 37 favouring Green Bay to 12 for the the Steelers. I guess it (steel) curtains for the Packers then
I'm looking forward to a classic between 2 iconic NFL franchises with the black and gold hoisting their 7th Lombardi.

Cheeseheads vs. the Men of Steel for Super Bowl XLV's glory..
..or is it the Steelheads..aahh, a rematch of last season's (2009-2010) game where it was also a barn-burner (GB lost by 1 pt to Pittsburgh, 36-37)..i feel it's gonna be another close one as both teams are eerily similar, almost like a mirror image of each other..
Good luck to both teams and hope madbad won't need to call his own ambulance towards the end..
