Aaron Rodgers Shouldn’t Take Out That Championship Belt Against The Steelers

I’ve got some advice for Aaron Rodgers, put that Championship Belt away when you play the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl.  Rodgers has been putting on his Championship Belt after touchdowns and big plays.

He even put his Championship Belt on after being run out of bounds against the Eagles, but he had better not do it in the Super Bowl.

I think the fact that Rodgers put his “Championship Belt” on in a game last year against the Steelers is going to be used as a rallying cry already.  He needs to let it go.

The Steelers are going to get their hits on him and they don’t need more motivation to knock him out of the game. If the Packers score, Rodgers needs to head to the sideline and resist putting on the Title Belt.

  • He’s a concussion waiting to happen. They better hope to God that Harrison doesn’t come near him. Anyhow, I’m sick of all the Packers talk. Everyone is hyping them up. And that’s the perfect storm going against the Steelers. They played only ok against us. Beat up on an overrated Falcons team and barely beat the Bears with Caleb Hanie. Their defense won all of those games. Rodgers was great against ATL but that game was over with the INT TD at half time. So yes the Packers are a very good team, but they haven’t done anything special. I guess people kinda get use to the fact that the Steelers keep winning but beating the Ravens and Jets are much tougher tasks. And just the fact that Eskin is gushing on the Packers makes it even more sickening. I hope the Steelers whoop them and Rodgers gets put out with his 3rd concussion of the year.

  • I think back-up QB T Flynn wins the game in the 4th Quarter after Rodgers is knocked out..
    Flynn plays so well, that he demands to be traded after the Season and his value just skyrockets
    while making the Eagles K Kolb’s value drop further to a mid-round pick in return…

  • The Steelers are not going to hold Aaron Rodgers to just 23 passing yrds. in the first half like they did with Sanchez. Rodgers should do just fine…..

  • Its the SB….floss the belt if you want.F the Steelers for not liking it. I respect and admire what they have going on cross state. Everytime one of there backers or db’s makes a routine tackel they celebrate.its football ..get fired up about playing. But stay true too yourself…if he scores and does it then let them think about that rather then how there goin too adjust too stopping it. Capers is on par with Ryan and with a better front then the jets i think they get it done in Dallas.

    Packers win this one cause its on a fast track and i think they’ll botle the run game early. Force Old Dirty Ben into a pick early.

  • Rodgers is a better QB than Big Ben. Big Ben is more accomplished.

    I would rather see Rodgers putting ON the championship belt. Show that confidence. Show that you belong there. Show that you’re becoming the face of the next generation of TOP QB’s in the NFL.

  • Meanwhile the Eagles can flash their “Safety Pins’

  • Crazy that the Pack is the favorite to win this. Steelers will win and Big ben will be a hall of famer when said and done

  • Steelers 24 – Packers 20 in a very well played,hard hitting game..
    I am picking Steelers RB Melwedee Moore as the Games MVP

  • It’s possible, but not likely, that the Packers win, but I think Pittsburgh still plays as though they were in the Black and Blue Division. I love power football because I think it’s winning football. Therefore, I like the Steelers in a relatively easy win, with they guy who has the long hair playing MVP football.

  • i think the steeler win this one easy because i believe that rodgers has a lil concussion from that hit he took by peppers.. i think he gets put to the sideline early in the 2nd quarter and flynne will mess things up. this is the steelers defense not the patriots. im predicting the steelers win 31 – 17.. i hope the packers win but rodgers is one ferrior or harrison hit from watching the super bowl (like the eagles just with a better view)

  • Hows that crazy? They have a balances attack,a great qb who is lights out in accuracy and poise,solid defense with playmakers and a great coaching staff. Steelers can be just as good…i think thePack have the edge in the secondary. So thats the difference. They won 3 roadies to get to the bowl. Doesnt matter who was against..they did it. And i think back too how the Steelers played agaisnt the Pats on a good field when they were being attacked by a high end qb. They got handled. Not saying it willhappen the same….but you cant deny how that effects things. Pack are playing better football i think.

  • Rodgers must get that ball out of his hands against the Steelers. The Pack will get to Roethlisberger but they’ve got to get him to the ground. The left side pass rusher can’t come inside against him or he’ll get outside and kill Green Bay.

  • That Left side pass-rusher happens to be Packers C Matthews Jr and this game could come down to who wins that individual battle between Big Ben vs Matthews Jr..

  • At this point in time, I pick the Steelers. I’m sick of them winning but just hard to pick against them in any big game especially with their QB. It’s not pretty but he get’s the job done. What will be key is the running game. Can the Packers RB run against the Steelers? I give the Steelers the edge here in the running game. I look for the Steelers secondary to be very physical with the Pats WRs. No soft cover 2 deep safety defenses like they faced against us, ATL and the Bears.

  • Did you guys see the article today about how the pro bowl voting may have to be tweaked because 3-4 LBs are taking all the LB spots. The problem with that is they get more recognition because they get more sacks since they play in the 3-4 while the 4-3 guys do a lot more run support and coverage so they don’t put up the sack numbers. It’s like 3-4 LBs are really DEs but are rated against 4-3 LBs who actually play LB while the 3-4 LB is mainly a pass rusher.

    I agree. I think they should a lot a certain amount of spots to 3-4 LBs and 4-3 LBs. In the pro bowl teams can’t blitz and have to play 4-3 anyway so that 3-4 LB now has to play a position they didn’t even get voted into the pro bowl for. They should either do that or rate these guys against pass rushers like Peppers, Jared Allen or Justin Tuck since they all play the same roles. Just my thoughts. I know it’s only the pro bowl but players get money for playing and it means a lot you young players or underpaid ones. Just my thoughts.

  • It’s ridiculous that the Packers are favored against the Steelers that are this good in the SB. Especially knowing that the Steelers have won twice in the past 5 years and many are still on the team from those championships. Last I checked, the Packers haven’t won an SB since the mid 90s. What up, yoh! I also think any player strapping on a belt they’ve never earned is nothin’ more than wannabe crap. Other than stats Rodgers hasn’t won anything that McNabb hasn’t and he ain’t a champ either. I’m figuring on a Steelers win and they may stuff Rodges belt down his throat while he’s under a pile of Steelers.

  • Recent history tells us that the NFC teams that get too the bowl always play with the AFC’S best. Steelers are an impressive bunch. Who do they have too play in there division…the Ravens twice.Browns..bungals….stop. Point is the AFC’S dominance is overstated every year and the NFC goes into the bowl and punches whomever in the mouth and says..im here all day…get your pale ready..gonna be a day.So why is this different?

  • Erock, that was before. The league isn’t dominated by the NFC. And you are talking about who’s in their division. Ok so the Packers played the Lions and Vikings twice. How many wins do both of those teams have between them? But that’s irrelevant. Going back to the 2001 Super Bowl the AFC has won 7 Super Bowls. So simply thinking Green Bay will win because they are an NFC team is a little ridiculous and actually goes against recent history. Not sure where you got your recent history from. In the last 4 Super bowls it’s 2-2 in the Super Bowl NFC vs AFC. So not sure where you get this stat that NFC ALWAYS dominate the AFC in the Super Bowl. This isn’t the 90s anymore. Sorry it just isn’t.

  • Don’t understand why it is ridiculous that they are favored. One team has to be and both teams are playing pretty well. Rodgers didn’t play well against a good Bears defense, but the Steelers tried to give their game away too. The line is under 3, so it is not like the Pack are a prohibitive favorite. I honestly can’t see how you think that the Packers are overhyped? 3 playoff victories on the road. This should be a great SB with 2 very good teams with good coaching. I wouldn’t be surprised if either team won.

    And honestly who cares about the belt thing? Plenty of Steelers players talk a lot of trash too, so what is the difference? You think that Harrison and Polamalu need any extra motivation. I will say that it was funny what Rodgers did to Abraham when he tried to mock him.

  • Scorp..i never said the NFC was dominant in the bowl. I said they show the AFC why there seasonal dominance and the way people view the conference as better is overstated. And yes they are viewd that way and look at the regular season records. A 7-9 team made the p-offs in the NFC. The browns could beat the Seahawks on a good day.

    Im not stating the Pack will win simply cause there an NFC team….wtf are you reading dude?Theyre balanced,great qb play,nice d…dominant d and well coached.

    TheNFC has shown the ability too show the AFC they can be just as dominant in the Ship. So read what i said and decipher it correctly before you talk about the 90’s and spit stats abouth the obvious.

  • I agree with you but I honestly don’t see what NFC vs AFC historically or recently has anything to do. It’s just a matter of whether a person thinks the Packers is a better team. In my case, I’m not picking the Steelers but they play in the AFC. I’m picking them because they know how to win and are a very good team. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Packers win though. But I just don’t understand what recent history has to do with anything. All recent history tells us is that it could go either way. That’s my point.

    “Theyre balanced,great qb play,nice d…dominant d and well coached.”

    The same thing can be said about the Steelers except they’ve actually won something before.

    “The NFC has shown the ability too show the AFC they can be just as dominant in the Ship.”

    When? 3 of out the last 10 times? When was the last time a NFC team truly dominated an AFC team in the Super Bowl? The last dominating performance was the Bucs against the Raiders.

    For one, I think you are overstated the “NFC’s ability to show the AFC they can be just as dominant in the Ship”. Secondly, it’s not about dominance it’s just about winning and like I said the AFC has won 7 of the last 10. So I don’t get where you are coming from with this NFC shows they can be dominate. Of course they have shown they can play with the AFC team because the games are usually close. But stop it with the exaggeration. And even bringing up the false recent history of the NFC’s dominance doesn’t make sense. But you can stick to that garbage rationale if you want.

  • So please tell me when the NFC team was dominate in the Super Bowl. Before Tampa, what Green Bay vs NE? You need to check your “recent history” stats before you go posting nonsense.

  • Showing they can play dominant football…showing they have what it takes to be there…Giants,Eagles,Cards,Seahawks,Bears….they’re proving they can get there and compete and play dominant football in some aspects of the game. Not too say they dominate…the other team does the same..hence…a high level of comp. Nonsense? Like wtf cares about 3-4 backers goign to a Pro-bowl? Beat it scorp.Im done explaining mysefl too you…last time I checked its my opinion and your some cat behind a computer like I.Not the site modirator.

  • Erock, teams have been proving that since forever. You act liked it just happened the last couple years that NFC teams can play dominating football. I just think you’re overstating it because honestly the NFC haven’t been as dominating in the last decade as they were prior. Previously, the NFC was the only teams winning the majority of the Super Bowls. The once Denver broke that streak everything shifted towards the AFC. I don’t disagree with you but I just think you are overstating it a bit.

    You don’t have to care about the LBs going to the pro bowl. But obviously profootballtalk and bleeding green thought of it enough to discuss it. But I digress. No gives a F about this false sense of dominance you think the NFC still has.

  • “Showing they can play dominant football…showing they have what it takes to be there…Giants,Eagles,Cards,Seahawks,Bears….they’re proving they can get there and compete and play dominant football in some aspects of the game.”

    Ummm duh. That’s why they make it to the Super Bowl because they are a good team. Say something no one else knows.

  • You just sound like you have some kind of paranoia about the AFC. I agree their dominance over the NFC is also overstated. But the head to head season records and recent super bowl record doesn’t lie. But you act like that had something to do with this game. Last I checked, the Packers were the favorites.

  • Scorp — I’m sure you know how the “betting” line works. Just because the Packers are the “favorites” doesn’t mean they are the team football “analysts” believe should win the game. Packers are the “favorites” in order to open up a betting line and get more people to place bets.

  • Steelers over the Pack… they’re on a better roll and team is healthy.

  • I’m going with the Pack. And it won’t even be close.

  • Birdo – I’d like to see GB win if no other reason than the Steelers have two already in 5 years but that would be a pleasant surprise. No only doubt a blowout by the Pack but also hope it’s a good, close championship game.
