Describe these teams. Does it just depend on which team is playing at home wins, or no?

They seem very similar to me especially by how the teams are built. What do you think? I think they both have explosive offenses, with the Packers having a little more magic/clutch to theirs. They both have the same type of defense, with the Packers' being significantly better in crunch time, and when it matters the most.

What are your thoughts?


Also, I've asked many city-related questions on this forum, and I usually post them as a thread like this. If I did something wrong, just tell me and I'll try to change it or a mod could do so, thanks.

Definitely the Packers. They seem to always pull one off at the end. Aaron Rodgers is not too shabby!

No he isn't. He's one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

The Steelers were the BEST team in the NFL last year. Their only problem is they play a zone defense and that prevents them from getting past the Patriots who know how to pick it apart.

19 total posts? many?


There is very little difference in the top teams in the NFL ... both the franchises were top in their respective conferences. "On any given Sunday" thingy.

ARog > Roethlisberger. Pittsburg O skill players > GB's . I think there is an offset by these 2 sets which is pretty well shown statistically by their final 2016 rankings , Pitt = #7 and GB = #8.

Defensively though Pittsburg ranked #12 in team D while GB was #22. This is a significant difference and gives Pittsburg the edge.

Now, using hard statistical data is far from perfect but it's all we truly have to go on. Lots af people can find multiple arguments (injuries, teams played, the "it" factor, or whatever) to debunk my analysis and I say go for it.

My analysis shows Pittsburg winning in 2016 a head to head meeting. Home field = +3pts which can change the outcome. These teams were pretty close in strength overall.

Couldn't hold a lead on a flawed Dallas team, AT HOME at Ketchup Field, and zone defense had nothing to do with it.

Terrible Towels indeed!

Funny thing.

I had the Steelers in the AFC Championship last year, but they were matched up against (who else?) New England.

I had Green Bay in the NFC Championship, and they played a very spirited Falcons team.

Superbowl might've been different otherwise.

Therefore they WERE NOT the best team in the NFL last year...

Not only were they NOT the best team in the NFL last year they weren't even the 2nd, 3rd or 4th best team in the NFL last year...

Ummm, this thread was rolling on when all of a sudden----

SCREECH!!

I believe the Patriots beat the Steelers 27-16 earlier in the season.

And in the AFC Championship game, it was 36-17 Patriots.

The Lombardi trophy is sitting in Gillette Stadium.

They are the best team.
