Super Bowl XLV : Steelers v Packers

At the end of the Regular Season the Pittsburgh Steelers had a 12-4 record and had won the AFC North title. The Green Bay Packers were 10-6 and came in as a Wild card coming second in the NFC Title. February 7 (Australian Date and Time) sees the two North teams, face off in Super Bowl XLV. The Steelers are always likely, while the Packers had some big wins this season mixed with some close losses.

Post Season has seen the Pakcers take care of Philly, Favorites Atlanta Falcons and last week the Chicago Bears to take the NFC Title.The Steelers played the New York Jets for the AFC title, after knocking over the Ravens.

For what it is worth, I think the Packers may rack up a big score in defeating the Steelers.

Run Home to the Big Dance

The NFL Playoffs start next weekend in the Wildcard Weekend, and while it is a sad time for the 20 teams that missed the chance for the dance, it is excitement plus for those fans and teams remaining. The teams that have closed the season with the best possible chance have been the Atlanta Falcons (13-3) and the New England Patriots(14-2) who along with the Chicago Bears (11-5) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5) have earnt themselves a week off as the others play to see who takes them on in Week 2.

Wildcard weekend for the AFC sees the New York Jets(11-5) take on the Indianapolis Colts(10-6), while the Baltmore Ravens(12-4) pays the Kansas City Chiefs(10-6). In the NFC, we have Green Bay Packers (10-6) playing the Philadelphia Eagles(10-6) while the New Orleans Saints(11-5) are playing the Seattle Seahawks.(7-9). The Seahawks are the first Divisional 7-9 winner to make the playoffs, and would appear at long odds to progress, but this is the playoffs and anything can happen.

Weak Finish to Panthers

The Carolina Panthers completed their 2-14 season as meekly as they competed all season. Smashed 31-10, by the NFC South Champs, the Atlanta Falcons who have finished the season 13-3 and are looking likely during the playoffs. The Panthers announced on Friday that coach John Fox and his entire staff would not be returning in 2011. While this season has as much in the results as the worst injury list the club has seen, and a real focus on youth, the days of Fox were numbered. He had been at the club since 2002, took them to two NFC Playoff games, as well as to the Super Bowl. This year they had the lowest ranked offence and in their final game of the season they were held without a TD until the final minute.2010 couldn't end soon enough.
