Wait...Ben has a dick?
What exactly have I said, that is incorrect? Bottom line: Ben beat us, and we could not stop him! Cmac missed a tackle he should've made, and he will be the first to admit it! I'm po'd because our team can't deliver the knockout punch when we need it most! And, I do believe that Ben is one of the top QBs in the league, period! If you dispute that, you're just not being objective!
Winning games, and bringing a team back (like he does) does make him a great QB!
I was beside myself how Ben could still throw that pass to Ward at the end with 3 guys hanging over him. Unreal.
On the other hand, anytime Flacco got touched he seemed to lose the ball. The guy needs to develop the instinct to tuck.
Flacco was too comfortable in the pocket in regard to protecting the ball, but Ben is as well. He tossed a few questionable balls and fumbled once his lineman covered. Flacco's was just more costly.
Flacco was as good as Roethlisberger last night, let's not forget we needed a TD in the 4th and he took us down there and got it. He led a 20 point scoring effort, that should be enough. It wasn't because the defense let Hines Ward get to one of them . . . again.
Overall, I am very happy with how things have gone save the final kick. Our rookie QB is ready for prime time and our defense is top notch. We have a very good running game. We have a young OL that is playing very well. The only thing this team lacks is a deep threat at WR.
I like our future prospects. And to some degree the future is now. I think we can win this division by beating the Stealers when they come here.
That was some phunnie s#!t
Now... Ben did not win the game. out D got outta control (again) but all and all did well. Harbaugh didn't challenge when he should have, and how many D holding calls were there? I'm asking honestly - I swear there were more D holding calls last night than I've seen in most seasons...
Ben got lucky on 2 'passes' where he flubbed the ball in the general direction of a receiver while being taken down. He is one of the toughest QB to take down but one of the greatest QBs he id not.
:ralph: OK SteelerJoe :bag: whatever you say dude
