Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has been absolutely money so far in the playoffs this year. However he's going to have to play better then he did against Chicago if he wants to get his first ring. He's going to have to be on his toes in this one and be ready to scramble. We already know he can run, but this is the best defense he might ever face in his career. They bring the pressure and get after quarterbacks. I can see him using a lot of screen passes to his running backs and short passes over the middle to avoid the rush. He has such a great chemistry with Greg Jennings right now as they've connect 16 times over the past two games, going over 100 yards twice, but I expect him to spread the ball around more in this game as he'll have to get it out of his hands faster. So look for Brandon Jackson, Andrew Quarless, James Jones and even John Kuhn to be involved in the pass game. The Packers have won a lot of games this year with basically no run game so I expect Rodgers to be ready to take over in this one. I also expect Donald Driver to have a big game as he's now 35 in his 12th year looking for a ring, and he might do whatever it takes to get it.
On the defensive side, I expect this defense to hold Mendenhall in check most of this game as the Packers defense is a lot more aggressive then the Jets. Don't expect guys like Clay Matthews, AJ Hawk, Desmond Bishops Ryan Pickett, B.J. Raji and Cullen Jenkins to miss so many tackles as we saw the Jets defense do in the 1st half which is essentially why they lost the game. Big Ben is going to have to deal with cornerbacks Sam Shields who just came off a 2 INT game and future hall of famer Charles Woodson along with safeties Nick Collins, and Tremon Williams who has 3 INT's in the playoffs. Hines Ward and Mike Wallace might have another tough game trying to get open and the Steelers need to get the ball in Mike Wallace's hands if they want to make the big play. This defense is young, fast and aggressive and I expect them to make a few plays which will determine the outcome of this Super Bowl.
