Re: Madden: Ben's at fault, but he's not the only one
"The WRs are punks" Best part of that whole article IMO.
Where was our "#1" WR yesterday? Oh yea, disappeared in big games yet again. Wallace can just leave - his "big play potential" isn't worth the way his attitude crept into the rest of the WR corps. For every person defending him, there are 2 Steelers fans I know that would rather see Cotchery have more chances over him.
You can keep your speed and potential. I want someone who is going to catch the ball and get back in the huddle. Possession is something that is sorely underrated by Steelers fans. For all the defenders out there - our WR corp hasn't made the difference in big games since AB's helmet catch v. Ravens in 10' playoffs. Who can we rely on right now? Heath is the best receiver on the team, and he isn't even built like a TE/WR hybrid nor is his role similar. That says an awful lot.
I disagree about Mendenhall - he can still go.
Ben is responsible for the last 2 weeks, plain and simple. I agree - the defense didn't show up until @ Cincy game really. Down, then up, then down - story of the season.
It's getting to be too long a time since a playoff victory ladies and gents . . , something getting to be habitual with this team and it isn't good.
Look into my eyes
