The article presents views of football scouts on various football players and teams in the run up to the Super Bowl. The Seattle Seahawks are probably the more confident of the teams going into the Super Bowl. Ben Roethlisberger has had an impressive postseason and certainly has taken a step forward from last year. The Pittsburgh Steelers's linebackers against Shaun Alexander will be a great matchup. The Steelers have to stop Alexander and make Matt Hasselbeck and his receivers beat them. It's also going to be a battle between Roethlisberger and Hasselbeck to see who controls and protects the ball better.
