Steelers rookie center Maurkice Pounecy suffered an ankle injury in the AFC Championship against the Ravens, and it looks like it will be holding him out for the Super Bowl. After Pouncey failed to participate in practice on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, head coach Mike Tomlin ruled Maurkice out. What does this mean for the Packers? B.J Raji will now have a favorable match up against backup Doug Legursky, and with B.J's tremendous ability to get to the quarterback, he should command a double team. The double team should free up the outside for guys like Clay Matthews and Cullen Jenkins. The Packers will be able to get to Ben Roethlisberger, but its a matter of bringing him down once they get to him. He is a big man and hard to bring down, and he a great ability to scramble out of the pocket and make a play. The Packers are only four quarters away from brining the Lombardi trophy home, and by getting to Big Ben it will make it that much easier.
