Experience will play a key part in the match against the a Green Bay team that has had little postseason play.
"It's passed down from generation to generation of Steelers," Coach Mike Tomlin said. "We embrace it. It's great to be part of, but it starts with the Rooney family."
Steelers Safety Ryan Clark said that it starts with the veterans, "You just follow suit, doing what James Farrior does. That's how we rock as a team. Older guys lead and we just follow the lead."
And Steelers Wide Receiver Hines Ward also passed along some advice of his own.
"Take it as not a big game," Steelers Wide Receiver Emmanual Sanders said. "As easy as it is to say it's harder to do. Hines told us stay fundamentally sound, don't care about crowd noise and have fun."
