So the Steelers 44 pass to 17 run play choice was traditional vs both the Chargers and Cowboys to lose the season?
I have shown that the Steelers pass more than GB, NE, and DEN on a percentage basis.
I have shown that Roethlisberger throws the same number of times as Peyton Manning.
I have shown that the Patriots ran the ball more than any team other than the Seahawks.
I have shown that the offensive lines that Ben plays behind are traditionally made up of higher draft picks than NE, IND or NO by far.
I have shown that Ben's offenses scored more than 23 points once in his 9 seasons.
I have shown that Ben has taken the Steelers to the playoffs only 4 times in the last 7 years while Flacco is 6 for 6, Manning hasn't missed since 2001, and Brady hasn't missed since 2002.
I have shown that Roethlisberger counts more against the cap than Brees, P Manning and Rodgers do for their teams.
The only thing I agree with you on is that the defense has had to carry the team, finishing top 10 for 13 seasons consecutively while still missing the playoffs frequently.
It is a good thing Ben is not going to win the superbowl this year because both of the times he did he REALLY ****ed up in the offseason. At least we know he won't come in 30 pounds overweight next year.
Guess what? Ben was 0 for 5 in games he threw 40 or more times in this year. Some things never change.
