Packer’s to win Super Bowl XLV

I’m not saying this just because the Packers are the NFC, I’m stating this due to the fact that as of now the Packers seem like the face of the NFL as of now. The Packers are the last vestige of “small town teams” that were once common in the NFL during the 1920s and 1930s. Founded in 1919 by Earl “Curly” Lambeau (hence the name Lambeau Field on which the team plays) and George Whitney Calhoun, the Green Bay Packers can trace their lineage to other semi-professional teams in Green Bay dating back to 1896.

Now that is a mouth full to acknowledge under the current assumption of the NFL with the ensuing players union negotiations as persuasive measures are being determined to extend the current season to 18 games or adding more pre-season games. No matter the Packers have been there and done that.

But hold on, the Steelers hold the same credibility as the Packers do amongst the NFL and it’s history. Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the oldest franchise in the AFC. Pittsburgh has won more Super Bowl titles (six), won more AFC Championship Games (eight) and played in (fifteen) and hosted more (eleven) conference championship games than any other AFC or NFC team. The Steelers won their most recent championship, Super Bowl XLIII, on February 1, 2009.

The fifth-oldest franchise in the NFL, the Steelers were founded as the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 8, 1933, by Art Rooney, taking its original name from the baseball team of the same name, as was common practice for NFL teams to do at the time.

However, this game is stated to being a very productive defensive match-up despite both teams having a very powerful and motivational Quarterback. The Packers have Aaron Rodgers who just came off one of the most impressive starts in his career against the Chicago Bears to progress to the Super Bowl from the NFC Divisional Title game. The Steelers have Big Ben, who is only the most prominent quarterback in the NFL as of now despite all the off field controversy.

So just to play it safe I’m riding with the Packers who have noting hanging over their heads and are a raging inferno as of now.

Go Packers!
