According to Las Vegas the No. 6-seeded Green Bay Packers are slight favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers to hoist the Lombardi Trophy on Feb. 6 in Dallas. As a New York Jets fan that's music to my ears, but I‘m not buying it.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has become the golden boy of the playoffs, but let's be honest – he torched an overrated Atlanta team and tailed off with a 37.6 quarterback rating and two interceptions in the second half of the NFC championship game.
On the other side, the Steelers made the Jets look like children in the first half and regardless of what people say, they have the better quarterback. When Ben Roethlisberger isn't being suspended he's busy going 10-2 in the playoffs and winning Super Bowls – two of them. He has the clutch gene, believe me I know.
As much as I'd love to see Aaron Rodgers throw three touchdowns and wrap that invisible championship belt around his waist, I just don't see it happening. The Steelers have the better defense and the better quarterback – until further notice.
