    Re: It appears gamblers and early linemakers believe BR may play in Baltimore



    Its either that the injury was embellished upon by Ben and/or his doctor(s) or its a serious injury and Ben is a fucking idiot for coming back too soon.

    You could put a Rec team out there in Steeler uniforms and the game would be decided by 3 points or less. Its how this series goes, most games very close no matter the circumstances.

    Jacoby dropped a ball on a punt return in our divisional game against the Texans which could very well have lost the Texans a shot at playing the AFCCG. The same can be said about the 49ers in the NFCCG against the Giants, where a ST mistake cost them the chance of playing in the SB.

    The players should not apologize for winning tight games making big plays on special teams to decide the difference in a game.
    It is "luck" in the sense that the same high skilled kick return team will return dozens and dozens of kicks and score on a handful at absolute most. It is "luck" in the sense the defense reacted the way they did instead of a different way which would not have allowed that lane. You cannot "overlook" special teams, but you can't reliably count on any points from special teams each week. Check the betting odds on a kick return touchdown for any given game and you'll see what I mean.

    As for those playoff special teams errors, are you saying that those were skill and therefore not flukes/luck? I am not sure what the point is unless you are saying that special teams plays, or turnovers, etc, can affect the outcome. If that is your point, I agree, and have not said anything to the contrary.

    My original point was that our offense didn't score any TDs. If Vegas had been told that our offense would score no TDs and 2 FGs (which they did), then Vegas would not have factored in a ST or Def TD and made the line Balt -3.5; we would have been slight underdogs or maybe a pick 'em if they gave partial points based on some percentage chance of a ST or Def TD. My whole point had to do with the -3.5 line.

    Ben works in mysterious ways. He'll be back when needed.

    Either one of two things...

    This injury was no where near as significant as first reported, or Ben will not play in Baltimore and all this is just the Steelers posturing.

    Remember that when the injury happened, Tomlin listed Ben as questionable first. I don't trust anything out of the Steelers until I see it first hand.
