07:53 AM ET 02.05 | Packers coach Mike McCarthy is feeling confident following the Packers' last on-field practice before Super Bowl XLV. "The one thing you want to see in your football team is that the players have maintained confidence throughout the process," McCarthy said. "Our guys have done that. They totally believe what's in front of them. They believe in what they've seen on film. We respect Pittsburgh, but we feel that this is our time and Sunday will be our night."

I agree with Agent P above. Perry the Platypuss is correct.

The Packers SHOULD win, but they have to be prepared for a BLOODBATH, a WAR out there. They think they're going to just fly up & down the field because it's a fast turf, like Atlanta, and they will be in for a rude awakening.

The Steelers are champions and tough as heII, unlike the Falcons defense.

If the Packers offense is prepared for that, they will win.

No doubt. I'm sure Mike Tomlin feels the same way.

It should be a great game... good luck, Count.

Every player or coach who has gotten to the Superbowl feels like it is their "time", tell us something new like....I bet my wife and kids on it.....then that tells me your confident.

OK, I bet his wife and kids on it. I think the Packers win , and it will be by more than the spread. A lot more.

Thanks Melman!

Now a truly shocking statement would be:

"We think we can win this game."

The 2 weeks before the super bowl truly are journalistic purgatory...

And it might not be that close. The best bet of the day is the over under number on rodgers passing yards. last time I looked it was 265 yds.
take the over, they could give a hoot about running the ball on the steelers. but they know they can pass it all day.

If the Packers win,(I pray to god they do.), or lose. it's been an amazing year for them. being able to get to the super bowl with all the hurt players they have had is just awesome.

having made it to the Bowl as a sixth seed, (and beating the Vikings twice.). is the gravy for the goose.

I just want to see Big Ben get slapped around and abused like he used to do to coeds. That's my only wish - don't really care who wins.
