Super Bowl Preview
Espn.com has a Super Bowl preview, below.
The Vince Lombardi Trophy is displayed between a Pittsburgh Steelers helmet and a Green Bay Packers helmet during a press conference with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell at the Super Bowl XLV media center on February 4, 2011 in Dallas, Texas. The Green Bay Packers will play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV on February 6, 2011 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The names have changed, but the traditions remain as strong as ever. The “Bradshaw” on the back of the jersey replaced by “Roethlisberger.” “Nitschke” by “Matthews.” “Lambert” by “Harrison.”
But for all the individual star power that takes to the Cowboys Stadium turf Sunday evening, two simple words capture the enormity of Super Bowl XLV, hearkening the echoes and spirit of what the National Football League was, and continues to be.
