Packers XLV

It's Gameday: A Day to Bring the Lombardi Trophy Home

Posted February 6th, 2011 @ 04:02pm

As I write this, we're 7 1/2 hours from kickoff. Cheeseheads and Steelers nation have descended on Big D and there really is electricity in the air. The world should be treated to a classic game, with two great quarterbacks and two elite defenses, charged with containing them.

It's been 13 years since the Packers have been on this stage and really, we have no idea how this team will respond. You hope that leaders like Charles Woodson, Donald Driver, Ryan Pickett and Chad Clifton will step up and talk about how long they've played, how long they've waited for this moment. And how precious it is.

Mike McCarthy has taken the unlikeliest road to Super Bowl head coach and now he has a chance to take down the team he grew up rooting for. And Dom Capers, at 60 years of age has finally reached the pinnacle of the sport, with a defense he has built in just two seasons. We won't know until mid-afternoon whether Erik Walden will be able to go, but it looks like Frank Zombo will return to his starting outside linebacker spot. Fitting, since the defense has lost players throughout the year and Capers has mixed and matched to ensure there would be no drop off.

But ultimately, this feels like Aaron Rodgers' stage tonight. His play in these playoffs has elevated him to elite status and tonight he has an opportunity to cement his standing as one of the top QBs in the league. It feels like he's ready for this moment. He knows this offense like the back of his hand and he has the weapons to move up and down the field on this tough Steelers defense.

The onus is on Clifton and Bulaga to keep the elite Steeler pass rushers at bay and allow Rodgers to perform his magic and officially wipe away the Brett Favre era and usher in the Aaron Rodgers era. Hopefully, at around 9pm, he'll hoist the Lombardi trophy and do just that.

I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They're very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for novices. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
