an excellent series of photographs, steelersdepot, breaks down the long strike TD to wallace in the giants game and shows how lefty freezes the deep safety with his eyes and pump.

notice this play had 3 players open and coulda gone to a short dump off, short, intermediate, or long. any option wouldve led to a significant gain.

if the running game is effective this play will be there all year long.

Great post. This thread would be loaded with superlatives if it was Ben making this pass or if Leftwich threw a pick 6. Why guys are so reluctant to embrace him is beyond me. He plays good for us despite what he has done anywhere else. One thing that stands out to me is how Leftwich stays put in the pocket and makes it easy for his lineman to block for him. Blocking for Ben has to be a B*tch because he always leaves the pocket and when he does so, he takes the defender with him. The defender can see Ben move but the lineman can't so it makes it that much harder to block for him. If Ben would stay in the pocket just like this, he will find that he will get better protection. For this reason, you wont see as many sacks under Leftwich in Bens absence. That and he processes the information faster.

No matter what anyone thinks of Leftwich it feels good to finally see someone hit Wallace in stride. Ben is definitely our guy but it's frustrating to watch him strike out so often on potential homers like these.

Ben is our guy? Really? It amzes me at how often Steeler fans have to mention that. Dont worry guys, Byron is NOT going to take Bens job. Its HIS. Saying "Ben is our guy. Or Ben is our starter" Is like saying 'Ben is #7" Silly Silly Silly lol

There was nothing silly about what I said.

I was saying how I liked Ben as a franchise QB but specifically don't like that he strikes out on the long ball so often. hence "ben is our guy but..."

You'd have to be dense indeed to think that Leftwich has even a miniscule chance of taking Ben's spot.

Do you see what I mean?WHY do Steeler fans feel threatened by Leftwich? Here is my post, I will repost it, where in it have I said ANYTHING about Leftwich taking Bens spot??

I must say first that this post has absolutely nothing to do with Ben so why even mention him. Second, I have to ask did Ben *bleep* your sister or a relative of yours because you seem to have SOOOOOOOOOO much HATE toward him for some reason or another?? I've never seen a "so-called" Steeler fan hate on a player as well as you do. Just curious.

This post has nothing to do with Belgium so why did you mention that? Did Ben bleep YOU? Lastly, I dont hate Ben, here is an example of hate

"BEN IS A #$$@@**" " I WISH THAT POS WASNT ON MY TEAM" "SCREW BEN HE IS A &$@&$#"
All I do is tell the truth about Ben, IF I have lied on him then please point out said lie. Worth noting, its interesting you dont say anything to the bloggers who have things to say about Arians, Tomlin or Leftwich. Interesting.

word.

downbylaw, ive been around here for a while and as common forum protocol and ettiquite, we typically keep all random and redundant ben bashing in one place, as to not become a distraction, taking away from other real football related conversations.

it has been bumped for your convinience. :thumbsup:

Unfortunately, downbylaw has made his way to yet another forum. He claims to be a Steeler fan, but is an unquestioned Ben hater. He turned EVERY Steeler thread into a discussion about Ben, and I see he has picked up nicely here. He was banned at least 3 times from ESPN (after creating new sn's).

Just so everyone understands, he will post like crazy and it will all be about Ben. He will always compare Ben to Manning Brady and Brees and give buckets of "statistical proof" to show how Ben is not "elite".

Either get used to him or ignore him.

PROVE that I was on ESPN whatever thread you're ranting about. What are the rules? We can criticize Arians, Tomlin, The Rooneys, Leftwich, Hines, Polamalu's injuries BUT DONT EVER CRITICIZE BEN. You guys act like Seahawk fans or worse yet GIRLS. If I tell you to list the elite receivers and you dont select Hines would I care? No. Its your opinion. My opinion is Ben is not elite and I dont just say it, I back it up. Wait till the Steelers have success without Ben, then what will you say? I'll tell you what you'll say. You'll say "Its the defense" lol Thats the same thing I say when Ben is there. ITS THE DEFENSE.

I'm a Ben hater because I say he isnt elite? I have proved it. The numbers dont lie. ONE Pro Bowl, NO Super Bowl MVPs, No All Pro Teams. He has 2 rings, well so does Ike Taylor, Deshea Townsend, Max Starks, Larry Foote, James Farrior, Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, Aaron Smith,Chris Hoke and Heath Miller. The only individuals that are ELITE in that bunch are Heath Miller and Troy Polamalu.

Man, Leftwich really stayed in the pocket on that throw. Displayed the perfect ball pat instead of the long, windup pump fake. Wonder if he can do that consistently? Doubt it, He mike hyperextend a knee.

Yes I feel you on this Wallace in most cases is waiting on the ball and has his man beat.
