    Default Mediots mostly pro-Packers...

    I've been ignoring most of the media this week, instead just using my time to watch old Steeler playoff/superbowl games.

    Either way, curiosity killed the cat, when I looked to see who was picking who on ESPN. Looks like the mediots are unanimous in their pick for the Packers. This is probably a good thing.

    Selected picks from the Idiots at the Especially Stupid People Network (Yes, I'm tired of them!)

    Chris Berman: Packers, 24-23 A classic matchup, so why wouldn't we have a one-point game? Late heroics on both sides.

    Swami's pick is good news, he's consistently wrong.

    Trey Wingo: Steelers, 27-24 Big Ben makes the late throw to win it.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, Trey. very original in your reasoning!

    Michelle Beadle: Packers, 17-10 A defensive powerhouse show. Aaron Rodgers has a lot of people to prove wrong.

    Yeah, especially the folks at ESPN!

    And my favorite pick with the most coherent reason why:

    Hannah Storm: Steelers, 24-21 Green Bay hasn't had to make up any kind of large deficit this season and it doesn't have the Super Bowl experience the Steelers do. The Packers also haven't faced the kind of defense they will face Sunday.

    Great Job, Hannah! Maybe you do know something about pro football!

    The mediots are hyping the hell out of Green Bay's offense.. But, they have played only two 3-4 defenses this year, and both times they couldn't score more than 14 points. They scored 9 against the Jets, and 14 against the Dolphins. Also, when you see how mediocre their rush defense is. I almost like this game very favorably for the Steelers.

    Yeah, but Rodgers and Green Bay has a dominant 6-6 record in a dome. RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!!

    According to the sports media, Rogers is the greatest qb of all time. Matthews is the all time best lb. We have no hope.

    Thought I’d add this here rather than start a new thread……….

    Turned on espn this morning just as they’re running the story they were calling Big Ben’s night out. They ran some video of Ben with the OL at a BBQ place on Tuesday night (I’m sure everyone has seen it) and steve levy says something like “our analysts didn’t see anything wrong with this, then they show rapid fire video of Gruden, Jaws, among others, who say no big deal….except for schlereth who says, “He’s setting himself up for criticism if he plays poorly.” Cut to levy and keyshawn Johnson and steve young……those guys start blasting away……Johnson, “Stay in your room and eat some crappy room service food.” Young, “Poor decision, why put yourself in that position?” levy asks if it were rodgers, would it be a big deal? Johnson, “No, but he doesn’t have a history of this!” And they went on and on…………

    I sat there, thinking WTF, glad this f****** week is over. I can’t wait till the Steeler’s kick a** on Sunday and shut these MFers up…….the way they presented the story just really p***** me off! I know we’ve all seen this stuff all week long, but I’m at my breaking point….just had to vent!

    I was just going to start a thread about this.

    I counted the number of people taking the Packers - 35 and Steelers - 7. WOW.

    I ****ing love it, keep it up, guys!

    And if you think the Steelers don't pay attention to stuff like this, you're wrong.

    I've gotta add that it's hilarious that the two Ravens (Lewis and McGahee) interviewed in Texas refused to take the Steelers and McGahee actually took the Packers. Gotta love that the hate is still there.

    Dirty Sanchez also took the Packers.

    Exactly.... They "thrive" when they think their back is against the wall....
