A wise man once told me, “There is no present or future, only the past, happening over and over again.”  Though, I am not in full agreement with that statement, it does set the stage for the third edition of “Throwback Saturday.”  What was happening on February 4, 2010 in sports?  How about on February 4, 2009?  Let’s find out.

Super Bowl XLV

Here is a snippet from the end..

My X-Factor in this game goes to the coaching staff.  Yes I said it.  I feel like Dick LeBeau’s amazing defensive mentality will give Rodgers just enough fits to lead the Steelers to a victory.  In addition, I think that the Steelers will get more production from Mendenhall than the Packers will get from Starks.  But the difference in the game will come down to coaching.  I give the Steelers and D-Coordinator Dick LeBeau the edge.
