I point out that Brady threw for more tds than the Steelers offense got collectively. Unphased Gnutella proceeds to champion Ben based on his individual statistics.

A quarterback is responsible for his team's offensive production. Period.

Look at RGIII this year. He was 20th in passing yards and 20th in passing tds. His offense was the 4th best scoring offense in the league and his team ended 10-6! That was an amazing season. He did a helluva job.

I could care less about his individual statistics. He did what was required to effectively operate an offense and score points.

He was helped by a solid running game from Morris and a decent defense. Every qb needs that. Every qb should have that. It was moronic for Tomlin and Arians to neglect the running game for as long as they did.
