With the exception of the Eagles who we both beat and the Broncos who we both lost to the other games flipped-flop. That Brees he is something 62.7 percent completion 4781 yds 39 TDs in 15 games and 627 attempts. Pitiful Ben only 63.1 percent 3131 yds 23 TDs in 12 games and 426 attempts. BTW Brees 18 ints to Bens 8. Now lets just forget Ben missed 3 games lets just look at how much more Brees is allowed to pass, 201 more attempts so far this season. At Bens current rate his stats would read 4608yds 34 TDs 12 ints. Numbers that are very close considering one is an "offensive machine" and the other is now on the down side of his potential.
The problem isn't Ben. Hell, the problem might not even be Haley. The problem is the Steelers follow outdated philosophies. They don't want to score fast, they want to keep the game close. They don't want the offense to take over because they fear a shootout - they want the defense to win it.
All of you dumb yinzers who bash Ben need to remember that. If they actually allowed him to win games earlier instead of waiting until the last 2 minutes, maybe there would fewer instances where it's all on him to bail out the team.
