I was able to stop Joe Montana just long enough to find out if he will be rooting for his hometown Steelers Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger have some strong similarities, but they also have some stark differences to their games. The quarterback matchup in Super Bowl XLV goes to Roethlisberger, because of his ability to break down the traditional concepts of defense.
