Editor Bump: not to detract you from your Photoshop activities but seven participants are going to be knocked out if they don't wager a guess at the Pro Bowl results. Try darts. Take the average scores of all the Pro Bowls. Roll a die to generate a score.
It's an old-school Super Bowl match-up as the Steelers, in operation since 1933, go for their seventh Super Bowl crown against the Green Bay Packers, a member of the NFL since 1921 and appearing in their fifth Super Bowl. Both teams dominated their respective Conference Championship Games for the first half before their opponents made it interesting in the second half. robloosli's 21-13 prediction for Green Bay was the closest and earned him 49 Pick'em Points. CardsIrish and Peter Jacob Hornig both had the Steelers winning 24-21 which was two off the final score and earned them 48 Pick'em Points each. The standings see the reigning leader through two weeks fall off the "medal stand" but with two games left in the 2010 post-season, opportunities can still be had to win it all.
Playoff Pick'em's next game on the schedule is the 2010 Pro-Bowl which is back in Hawaii. This game is truly a "wild card" game as the score can really be about anywhere for either conference. The AFC won last year, 41-34, with a rosters chock full of "Pro Bowl alternates". This year is shaping up to be the same as already Darnell Dockett and Larry Fitzgerald have joined Adrian Wilson on the NFC roster. It may be the last chance to see these guys playing for a long time...
