View Full Version : I said I would do this, so here I am !!

02-05-2006, 11:15 AM
Back a couple of months ago, I was here and made some observations about Ben Roethlisberger that he has done a magnificent job of disproving.

So I am now here to RETRACT any and all remarks I have previously made which disparage the ability of YOUR QB !! He has been nothing short of THE MAN during the postseason !!

Further, I give you my word that from this day forward, I WILL NEVER AGAIN question Ben's ability. Now that still leaves me the option to rag on him if he goes out and throws four int's at some point, but then again, you folks will likely do the same in that situation !!

Anyway, I said that I would come here at some point before the SB and make this declaration, and now I have done so ..........

Now that I have lived up to my promise, I give my view of the game !!

Simply put, Roethlisberger is gonna have to BE THE MAN ONE MORE TIME !!!

Seatlle's defense is not terribly different than Indy or Denver, both of whom pretty much shut down your rushing attack. But I think that the Seahawks have shown the ability to get pressure on the QB more consistently than those other two teams.

Your defense simply HAS TO STOP Shaun Alexander, and then the rushing part of the equation is a wash. But the Stooler defense has also shown a tremendous ability to harrass opposing QBs.

So ......... in my humble (at the moment, anyway) opinion, this game comes down to which team can give their QB the time he needs to do his thing !!

I am not about to say there is a clear cut choice as to whom is better suited to accomplish that feat, but you KNOW who I am HOPING to see get the job done !!!!


See ya next season !!

The Pittsburgh Steelers are Super Bowl XL Champions!!! :bouncy: The Cleveland Browns are, well, still pitiful. Poor things. It's no wonder their fans are so nasty. Go back to The Darkside, Dan. It's truly your home.

Supposedly a picture is worth a thousand words ....... so I'll just skip the other 985 !!

Hey say what you will, the refs didnt throw the pick, miss the field goals, or drop the passes... We'll all take our trophy and maybey if you get lucky we'll let you oogle it when you come to the ketchup bottle next year for your ritual beating

02-08-2006, 09:35 AM
Hey guys....of all people we do not need to defend ourselves to one of the worst teams in the NFL and their classless fans.

02-08-2006, 09:49 AM
You got that right, bbg7. The majority of Browns fans are nasty, and this dude keeps proving it. His team doesn't even know what a Lombardi Trophy looks like except in pictures. I'm sure neither one of us girlies are shaking in our heels because we're scared of Big Bad Buckeye Dan and his posts. He's so pathetic. Even their women call themselves dawgs. :rofl:

Dan...set the crack pipe down and back slowly away...

20 reasons the refs' calls didn't matter...

1. The Refs didn't give up the longest run in SB history...Seattle's defense did.
2. The Refs didn't bite on a 43 yd trick play, Randle to Ward for a TD...Seattle's defense did.
3. The Refs didn't allow Ben to scramble around on a 3rd and 28 and complete a long pass to the 2 yd. line...Seattle's defense did.
4. The Refs didn't miss two field goals, that was Seattle.
5. The Refs didn't fail to step out of bounds late in the 1st half to stop the clock in Pitt territory in a crunch time situation...Seattle's offense did.
6. The Refs didn't let the 1st half clock tick down from 48 seconds all the way down to 13 seconds before finally running their next play at Pitt's 36 yd line...Seattle's offense did.
7. And on this play, 3rd down, 53 yds away from a FG, it wasn't the Refs who tried and failed to go deep for a TD rather than a safer 5-7 yd play and timeout setting up a much easier FG attempt....that, again, would be Seattle's offense.
8. The Refs didn't get confused by Pitt's zone defense and throw an INT...that would be Seattle's QB.
9. The Refs didn't let a little physical contact intimidate them from catching 4 very catchable passes...that would be the Seattle TE Jeremy Stevens.
10. With approx. 20 seconds left in the game, knowing they need a TD and FG, in no particular order, and in easy FG range on 4th down, it wasn't the Refs who ignored the FG and elected to throw up a prayer trying for a TD...that AGAIN would be Seattle.
11. The Refs didn't constantly punt deep into the end zone, repeatedly giving Pitt the ball at the 20 yd line...that of course was Seattle.
12. It wasn't the Refs who received a Christmas gift wrapped easy INT lobbed in perfect position to return deep into Pitt territory...the lucky beneficiary of that break would be Seattle.
13. It wasn't the Refs who got a break when a Steeler DB dropped an easy int early in the game...that too would be a break for Seattle.
14. It wasn't the Refs who caught a break when a Steeler WR dropped a very catchable TD pass...that break again would go to Seattle.
15. It wasn't the scapegoat Refs that received a break when a WR caught the ball, turned, stepped, was hit hard enough to cause a fumble, and then ruled INCOMPLETE...that would be of course, another chance for Seattle.
(this was an interesting call considering that after Troy's famous overruled Int, the NFL stated that it WAS a catch. If so, than this definitely WAS a catch)
16. The Refs werent the ones who caught a break when at the conclusion of a 2nd qtr play, as a Pitt DE was walking away, the Seattle Center blindsided the defenseless player, leveling him to the ground. This mysteriously unseen crime was again another break for Seattle.
17. It wasn't the Refs who got a break when Pitt QB Big Ben was blocked in the back as he pursued the DB who he'd tossed an int to...that again would go to Seattle.
18. It wasn't the Refs who stopped Seattle RB Alexander in a few key situations. That would be the Pittsburgh Steelers.
19. It wasn't the Refs who converted many of their 3rd downs yet stopped their opponent on 3rd down often...that would be the Pittsburgh Steelers.
20. And the very bottom line is this...On plays when there wasn't any penalties...One team made plays and one team didn't. The end result was the final score, 21-10 Seattle was outcoached and outplayed.
