Steelers arrive at Super Bowl relaxed, confident

Posted: Updated:

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are back at the Super Bowl, and even those players here for the first time are acting like they've been here before.

The Steelers will be playing in their seventh Super Bowl, only one fewer than the Cowboys' record eight.

It was tough to tell the rookies from the veterans as the team arrived in town for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. They weren't overwhelmed with the media throng, and knew how to handle the large crowds of Steelers fans who drove by their Tampa hotel cheering "Here we go, Steelers."

Half of the Steelers' starters remain from three years ago, including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, when Pittsburgh beat Seattle in the Super Bowl in Detroit.
