However, Steelers star safety Troy Polamalu doesn’t believe that is any factor. Polamalu is one of 10 current Steelers who were on both the 2005 and 2008 Pittsburgh clubs that won rings, and all told 25 Steelers have played in a Super Bowl, with 14 of the team’s 22 starters earning at least one NFL championship in Pittsburgh. The Packers have no players who have won a Super Bowl ring and just two players, Charles Woodson and Ryan Pickett, who have even played in the game.
“Given the way the Giants beat the Patriots, or the Saints beat the Colts, or the way the Buffalo Bills lost four straight, you can’t put too much into that,” Polamalu said to reporters. “I’ll tell you what is a big advantage. It has nothing to do with playing in Super Bowls, but it has everything to do with playing in big games, whether it’s rivalry games or whatever. … If you play in enough of those type of games, you learn how to play in big games.”
Two seasons ago, the Steelers beat the first-time Super Bowl qualifying Arizona Cardinals in Tampa. In Super Bowl XL, five seasons ago in Detroit, Seattle was making its first appearance in the league’s showcase game when the Seahawks lost to the Steelers.
