IF the Steelers had won... we would all be talking about Roethlisberger having 3 championships and in the same league as Tom Brady (active) and Troy Aikman, Joe Montana, etc. (inactive) QBs with 3 or more titles... and people would be wondering about Aaron Rodgers still.
Now Rodgers has 1, and Ben only has 2... so you can't talk about Ben as being "way better" than Rodgers for the moment... and Ben doesn't get upgraded to the uber-elite status just yet.
Rodgers, meanwhile, shuts up most of the Favre comparisons going forward... and he has the same amount of titles as Favre at a much earlier point in his career... and a team young enough to get to a couple more if they hold everything together.
Heck, Green Bay could be much improved next year if they just get all their injured players back for a whole season!
Interesting... how the league going forward will have completely different conversations just because of this one game.

It was a great game...more stressful in the 2nd half. Congrads to Pittsburg on a great season. Tomlin and the rest of the team are class acts.
It would be great (If there is a season next year) to see a re-match in the SB!

While I agree with your points about this game I think that last year's outcome was just as significant. With a Colts win Manning is validated as the greatest player ever & Brees is still trying to get to the next level. Instead, Manning drops down to mortaldom & Brees is now an upper echelon QB.
Agreed. Last year was a very similar dynamic. Manning could have cemented a place in the upper echelon... or we might still have people questioning Brees.
By no means do I think the Steelers are done either... they could easily be in the top class of the AFC for several more years... but while I see the Steelers as a team trying to stay good (like Indy or New England)... Green Bay has a solid shot now of actually getting better.
Of course teams come and go lately... sometimes a team falls off the map one year and wins it all the next.
