When The League at Washington Post.com asked me who would win Super Bowl 45, I immediately said the Green Bay Packers. But then I needed to explain why. I'm still thinking it will be a close game, but, of course, the Packers will win:
As important as defense is to win championships, I've recently wrote at The League on the reasons why the most important weapon in the modern NFL is the pass offense. In a matchup between two equal teams, the advantage the Packers gain from having Aaron Rodgers and their passing attack will be the difference in the game. Packers Win!
