Celebrity Picks for the Super Bowl
"Initially I thought the Steelers, but considering the way Green Bay played my Patriots so hard for four quarters, and with their backup no less, I am reconsidering. Green Bay 28-24."
"The Packers... they're just hotter ."
"The Steelers have the defensive that allows fewer points per game and running yards per game. Roethlisberger is very experienced and knows how to keep calm in difficult situations to bear the pressure; we can also add to this the experience that the offense has in big games, which gives them tranquility at the crucial moments, and this can help them to be crowned for the third time in last six years."
"Steelers 27-21. This Pittsburgh team has been there before and knows how to play in big games."
"27-10 Steelers. The Packers are going to have a tough time running on the Steelers defense. The Steelers core team has not changed and many of them are veterans to the Super Bowl stage."
"Steelers over Packers. Tight, close game. Excellent defenses, quality quarterbacks... but Pittsburgh's running game will be a big factor. And Roethlisberger is a gamer and finds ways to win."
"Steelers over the Packers. I'm horrible at score predictions. I just think they're going to win by a landslide! I am from Pittsburgh. I'm a big Steelers fan. I was hoping to go to the Super Bowl but unfortunately my shooting schedule is not going to allow for it, but I will have a Super Bowl party at home. I have jersey with my name on it and everything."
"I wanted the Jets. I printed Jets! Jets! Jets! On my Twitter and Jason grabbed my phone and goes, 'Don't you dare!' 'OK, I'm sorry!' I tend to go for the underdog and so since the Jets aren't playing, I think I'll just watch with friends, drink beer and have a good time."
"Steelers in a close one... 24-20... I'm [ticked of]f the Giants are not in the big game. But either way I'll be watchin!"
"Oh, gosh, a final score. Well, I'm rooting for Green Bay, I'll tell you that much! I think it's going to be a close game. I'm good at picking a team, if they're going to win or not, but scores I've never been good at!"
"Steelers to win. I come from a long line of very superstitious Steelers fans. My dad is a very superstitious Steelers fan. I watched the Buffalo game with my dad, and the Steelers played well in the first half, and in the second half I had a blanket over me because it had gotten cold, and they started losing, so I had to take the blanket off!"
"Packers 27, Steelers 24. I'm going with the Packers, all the way, without hesitation. I'm an Aaron Rodgers fan. I met him a couple of years ago in Vegas and he was probably one of the nicest guys, especially as far as football pros, that I've ever met. He's just one of those guys that you root for because of who he is off the field as well. Rodgers, he's got the deep threat, he's got a cannon for an arm and he handles pressure. I just want to see him throwing the ball, throwing it deep, and going for the end zone."
"Green Bay 27, Pittsburgh 17. I don't see the Packers losing this one."
"Aaron Rodgers is on fire. You can see it in his eyes. A true leader. This is his year. Packers 27, Steelers 17."
"Not being from either one of those cities, I feel a certain kinship with Pittsburgh, or as we call it at the house, Hollywood East. We shot Justified there and I shot the film I Am Number Four there, and it's hard for me not to root for the team from that fine city. On the other hand, I'm not from there, so screw 'em! No, I'm picking Green Bay to win the game. A particular score? Three-nothing. All right, 3 to 2. I'm picking 3-2, a field goal and a safety, and that's it!"
"Well, my hometown, Pittsburgh, is in the Super Bowl, so I have to watch it. I'm obligated as a Pittsburgher, but I don't have a location yet. I heard there are a lot of Steelers' bars in L.A., so I have to find one and go."
"Green Bay 21, Pittsburgh 17. I don't know! I hope Green Bay is going to win. I think it's going to be really close because both teams are so good."
"Steelers win, but the game will be extremely close and within seven points."
"I'm picking the Steelers, can't pull for Rodgers... he's a Cal guy."
"For me, I'm Steelers all the way. When Madden Football first came out, my friends picked their teams and I picked the Steelers, so that is how I became a fan, because I worked my friends over as the Steelers. I was at the Super Bowl when they beat the Arizona Cardinals in the last minute with that touchdown pass, pulling for them like crazy. I had my Steelers hat on when they played the New York Jets last week and I'm going to have my Steelers hat on Sunday, cheering for them. I've considered going to the game but with having a baby and the 24-hour race, I probably won't be able to go. It will be the first Super Bowl I've missed going in person in a lot of years."
"Pittsburgh. Why? Big, Bad Ben Roethlisberger."
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
"I picked the Packers and Steelers in our playoff challenge and that turned out pretty good. I like the Steelers coach. He is an awesome role model. I think Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is an awesome role model, too. I think if Green Bay wins the game it will be an incredible season for Aaron Rodgers because of [overcoming[ his two concussions. He's an incredible talent. So if I have to choose, I'm picking the Packers."
"I love Green Bay to win it. Aaron Rodgers is the real deal!"
"Pittsburgh Steelers. Why? They have experience, a running game, coaching and a mama-said-knock-you-out type of defense. My hometown team will once again raise the Vince Lombardi trophy. Ironic. It will be against those cheese heads. Go Steelers!!!"
"Green Bay Packers. I am going to Super Bowl for Pepsi [one of my sponsors], and I was pulling for the New York Jets but Pittsburgh beat them. I think I would prefer to pull for Green Bay because I like Green Bay and I really like Aaron Rodgers. He is a great quarterback. It's not like my 49ers are in the Super Bowl. Then it would be clear-cut. But, I'm going with Green Bay."
"Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger has won it before and so has head coach Mike Tomlin. They have a great defense with coach Dick Lebeau, and the whole coaching staff has so many years of NFL experience that it will be difficult to beat them."
"The Steelers are going to win it. That's just the way it is going to be. Look at their history at what they have done. The Packers have been really, really good the last 10 weeks, but it is hard to go against Pittsburgh. They are really good."
"Green Bay Packers. I have mixed feelings on the Super Bowl but the line is saying the Packers are favored. My mind is they are begging people to go for the Steelers because they are a popular pick; they've been there before and they are the veterans. If it is a heads-up match, how do you not go for the veterans? But instead, they are trying to get people to side with the Steelers because they know the Packers are going to win and pull off the victory. That's what is known as a sucker line and that's why I'm going with the Packers. Always be on the Casino side; not on the public's."
"The Pack is bringing home the hardware because it belongs in Green Bay. They did win the first two ever and the trophy is even named after the green and gold's old coach - Coach Lombardi!!!"
"Packers 18-14 -- Too much Mason Crosby"
"Packers 28-24 -- Packers defense can stop Big Ben easier than the Steelers can stop Rodgers."
"Packers. Why: Because of Greg Jennings... that's my guy."
"Dallas Cowboys. Oops they are not there."
"Steelers, b/c I love their defense."
Dr. Sanjay Gupta
"Steelers win 24-20 -- Why? Who knows? But, as a doctor, I can tell you: too much cheese is bad for you."
"As always, the fattest team will win. Look it up America, you bunch of fatties!"
