Alright guys, we're down to just 4 more days until Superbowl XLV (that's 45, for those who don't know the nomenclature ). What's your take?

I'm personally going for the Packers (disclaimer, I'm neither a pack fan, nor a steelers fan; I'm from san diego, so yes, I proclaim myself as a chargers fan...as long as they don't move to LA). I think given the past few weeks and how Aaron Rodgers has done for Green Bay, I think Packers has a huge shot at becoming the Superbowl champion this year. What do you guys think?

I don't support either team but I think the Steelers will win it. They always rise up to the occasion and Polamalu is God's personal safety.

polamalu is just awesome. I love the way he plays and love the way that he understands the position of a ss. This guy will just pummel you w/out thinking twice about it.

I can't wait; it's going to be awesome!

Gotta go with the Pack.

Rodgers is playing out of his MIND right now.

PapaJohns.com and register for their rewards program. Then hope for OT.

If it goes to OT, if you registered before sunday they give you credit for a free pizza in your account!

I still am confused as to HOW the Packers are a 3 point favorite. I really don't think there is even a remote chance they will win, let alone win by more than a field goal. I'm betting heavily on the moneyline for the Steelers once bodog puts it up. I'm thinking it will be in the range of +200 to +250.

The Packers have the better QB (at least on current form)... that usually tips the scales for the bookies.

Rodgers might have better numbers, but Ben can win games (and especially big games). You can't bet against a guy who has won 2 super bowls in 5 years imo. Tomorrow will be his 3rd.

Remember the line isn't what Vegas thinks the score will be--it's where they think they can set a line and get equal gambling action on both sides of the line. For whatever reason, they think that Green Bay would get more action than Pittsburgh if it was a pick 'em game. Maybe they think people feel shaky about Pittsburgh because they almost gave the game away against NYJ, or that people are influenced by how well Rodgers has been playing lately. So they shifted the line to Green Bay (-3) to get a little more action on Pittsburgh to cover or win.

yeah very true, but people are forgetting how well Pittsburgh played in the first half against the Jets. I didn't think they would need to score again after putting up 24 in the first half, and that was correct. They got extremely conservative in the 2nd half (basically just running Mendenhall on every play) and it showed, as they did not put up another point.

Can't argue with that. Ben is definitely not the most gifted passer but he surely gets things done when it matters the most. If he gets his 3rd tomorrow he will seal his Hall of Fame spot.

Though I'm pulling for the packers, I really think it's going to be an awesome game to watch tomorrow. Both teams can be super awesome and hopefully we won't have any stupid sh*t happening in the cowboys stadium tomorrow.
