    Default Steelers win the Toss.......

    What do you do? Do we defer to the second half and start strong with our D? Or would you take the kickoff and try to open with a clock eating touchdown drive ala the AFC championship?

    Personally, I would defer and start with the defense... But as you pointed out, there's also the advantage of a long opening drive...

    Definitely defer and start with defense. Put the pressure on the Packers offense and Rodgers to kick off the game with the nerves still high.

    Im kind of thinking the same thing. If Rodgers makes that early mistake, we may be able to get up early. On the flip side if things dont go are way, it will sure be nice to take the second half kickoff.

    Yep, and with the Steelers, sometimes the team can start off slow offensively. The worst thing would be the Steelers receiving the ball first and going 3 and out. Definitely possible.

    How nervous is Rodgers going to be in this game? That will be huge, might as find out right away!

    I want the ball. I dont want a possible kick return...I dont want a possible huge momentum boost at the beginning. I want to have the ball and punch them straight in their teeth...

    So who else thinks the toss played a big factor in the game. We take the kickoff, and sloppily went 3 and out. It kind of set the tone for things to come.
