Steelers all the way


It's simple. It's no contest. The Pittsburgh Steelers are heading up the Stairway to Seven.

* They've walked this ground before. Pittsburgh has 25 players who've played in a Super Bowl compared to the Packers' two players. The Packers last played in a Super Bowl when Aaron Rodgers was still practicing his Triple H belt celebration in the mirror before high school games.

* You learn more from the losses than the wins. During the regular season Green Bay lost on the road to Washington, Chicago, Detroit, New England, and Atlanta. The Packers lost at home to Miami, a team with such an anemic offense, the World Health Organization air dropped iron pills into South Beach.

* Wide right. The Steelers have the more accurate kicker. Shaun Suisham made 93.3 percent of his field goals. Mason Crosby made 78.6 percent. Crosby can always be counted on to choke when it matters.

* Steelers by a hair. Keisel's beard and Polamalu's mane beat out Clay Mathews' extensions and Rodger's stubble. Aaron: commit to the facial hair from the beginning of the season to the end. None of this indecisive crap.

The Packers will make it interesting no doubt. But no team can beat you more ways than the Steelers.

Steelers 27, Packers 20.
