Opposites Attack In Super Bowl XL !

People are beginning to say that Super Bowl XL between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Seattle Seahawks may be a close game because they are so evenly matched. That may be the way they see it, but I see it as a clash between polar opposites. During the regular season these two teams did anything but mirror one another. The Seahawks offense was ranked #2 in the NFL while their defense was tied for 16th. On the other hand the Steelers had the 15th ranked offense with a defense raked 4th in the league. So, where does this evenly matched stuff come from. Well, it must be how these two teams have played in the post season. There are some similarities, however. The Steelers and the Seahawks have score an average of 34 points a game on their road to Super Bowl XL. Their running backs are averaging 3.5 yard per carry for Seattle and 3.3 for the Steelers. Hasselbeck has completed 66% of his passes and Roethlisberger has completed 68%. Darrell Jackson averaged 14.5 yards and 2 TDs, while Hines Ward averaged 13.7 and 2 TDs. So if these offenses play this even, then the edge would have to be in the defense. And that's where the Pittsburgh Steelers are the strongest. Get the rest of te story. That's Pittsburgh Steelers news.
