Having become a full disciple of an "Ultimate Football Site" that will remain anonymous...I have checked and rechecked the stats from our last game and have came to a conclusion that might be highly unpopular.

These are the last games running stats when broken down individually.

Parker: 1.5 yards per carry
Mendenhall: 1.5 yards per carry
Moore: 1.6 yards per carry
Rothlisberger: 3.0 yards per carry


Based on these stats for the first game only and ignoring all other stats other than those that I choose to include and which may disprove my idiotic rant...It is apparant that:

1) Ben is the most effective running back on our roster.
2) Ben should be moved into the backfield immediately.
3) The other 3 RB's are hereby and forever labeled as "busts"
4) We REALLY need a sarcasm smiley.

It is difficult to argue with statology. Of course we will have to change our starting line up next week if Logan runs a reverse for 5 yards.

...and since Hines IS the best blocking WR in football, I'm wondering how he would look at Left Tackle?

That was one hell of a run during the SB. But I don't think you could pay him to do it again.

I even have a free agent Guard that might help us out. I think we should sign Chassity Brown. She is a 5'7 guard who graduated last year and hasnt been signed to any NFL team.

Yes she is a female...yes she is only 5'7...and yes, she was a guard on a college Vollyball team...but dang it!!!....she was two year starter on TULANE'S vollyball team!!!

He won't need to run long distances--just 4-5 yards at a time, and clear sons-o'-biitches out of the way

Sure, on first downs.

But he sucks on 3rd downs and we need a 3rd down back - and how often do you have a first down on your own goal line where you need a back that can run 100 yards a carry?

Stats are not only misleading, they often outright lie. Cowboys fans thrilled with Romo's 140+ QB Rating this week are in for a rude awakening when they play a decent team. He absolutely sucked - bit it was statistically a career-best performance for him.

I'm actually surprised that U.F. Nuckle hasn't shown up yet. I thought for sure he'd be back to wax philsophically (read: bore us all to death) with Moore rants about how much Parker sucks and that Mike Tomlin should do what he said and keep Mendenhall on the sidelines.

Chad Ochocinco is 1-for-1 on field goals, and he might have to take a smaller contract with the problems he's had lately. We should pick him up on the cheap and dump Reed, that greedy S.O.B.

Well...you know, Parker averaged 1.5 yards a carry and Moore averaged 1.6 yards a carry!!!

Proof positive that Moore is a MUCH better back....OH, sorry....a more "effective" back.

We can move Ben to long-snapping on FG attempts and Punts
Long-snapping is nothing more than passing the ball between the legs, and he's pretty good at that

Plus---it could become the beginning of what becomes known as the "Aardvark Formation" (similar to the "Wildcat") whereby the QB lines up as the Long-snapper and hikes it to himself, thereby giving him ample opportunity to make a play by taking the middleman (the center) out of the equation!

Ben at QB is a waste of spot he doesnt get rid of the ball so we should consider moving him to RB

then we could move Hampton at RB too but he would be our short yardage.

I heard that Donovan Woods played QB at college,we might want to promote him to the active roster as a QB.

We would have to release someone for that to happen,I could see Mendenhall being release because he is a major bust(he has been injured in his rookie season and got stuffed against one of the best run D in the league)

i admit i thought it would be funny and smart to put hines at tackle, starks and colon are the worst weve had in years, and maybe santonio at halfback, he can dodge tackles like crazy, what we need to do is get logan involved in the offense, end arounds, screen passes, and outside runs, like our very own darren sproles

Good Idea. I think that website only had Ben ranked as the #23 QB in the NFL anyways......maybe its time to give him a shot at a position where he is successful. :noidea:

See, this is why we're so good on broken plays. It gives all the players an opportunity to perform the functions of the other positions that they are better at.

But we can't just change their positions. If we go ahead and move Hines Ward to left tackle, we lose the element of surprise.

09-15-2009, 08:34 AM
that's not an entirely useless stat as it does suggest that the defense is prepared to stop the run, but not as prepared to stop it if it looks like its supposed to be a pass.

That being said, we could probably throw Dixon in there and have him QB for a series or two where we intentionally run some QB draws/option plays.

We need to go get the Redskins guy who holds for field goals and extra points and sign him as our star running back. While we're at it, why don't we throw in Mendenhall to make room for Redman to come be the saviour of our running game if the holder fails?
