Super Bowl Prediction
Over the past two weeks, the Super Bowl has been broken down every way except one, and that’s my way. If I have to be the one to break the game down properly then so be it. Let’s do this.
- 2010 Turnover differential: Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh: +17 Green Bay: +10 -- The previous 44 Super Bowl winners are a combined +90 in turnover differential in the big game.
- Cooler city: Pittsburgh
You can keep your Beast Ice, give me a pub crawl on East Carson Street all day.
- Big play threat: Pittsburgh (Mike Wallace)
Dude is FAST!
- More prestigious: Green Bay
Pittsburgh has had far more recent success, but before the 70’s, they were terrible. The freakin’ trophy is named after Lombardi.
- 2010 Rush attempts: Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh: 376 Green Bay: 271 -- All 10 playoff winners this year have attempted more rushes than the losing team.
- Larger fan base: Draw
I’m not sure why, but there are fans of both everywhere. Too close to call.
- Better owners: Pittsburgh
The Rooney family has created the blueprint for how to run a successful sports franchise. Green Bay is publicly owned, and the public voted Yao Ming as an All-Star starter.
Based on these undisputable facts, there is only one conclusion to be drawn:
Pittsburgh Steelers 28
Green Bay Packers 24
