Seattle-Pittsburgh, Then and Now (v.3)

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Pittsburgh is back in the Super Bowl three years after playing Seattle in Super Bowl XL. The Steelers are not back with the same team, though.

That was evident in comparing the Steelers offense, which has only one starter on its offensive line who started in Super Bowl XL. Pittsburgh's defense is a little quieter this time, but that's most because Joey Porter (and his mouth) are now in Miami. The Steelers still have their two best players, though. Here's a look at the changes in the starting lineup from Super Bowl XL to now:
