With a chance to drive the field, BB throws an INT.

BB does not look 100%. He had a couple of throws, to the RBs (or other check downs) that he threw into the ground. I think that the dude is playing through an immense amount of pain. If we can all weather the next two games & the team can eke into the play-offs, he should be closer to 100%.

Oh, and that TD to Miller was one of the best plays I've seen from BB. He avoided FIVE sacks (by my homeristically embellished count).

He thew the game-losing INT, and that has to be stated, but man alive, this kid is awesome to watch.
Those sacks were on the o-line, not Ben. He didn't even have time to throw the ball away because they missed their assignments.

Agreed.

I didn't make that clear (I should have had a sub-category for O-line).

YES, in both games, it was the O-line responsible for the "sack, sack, punt" scenario.

It just doesn't seem like this offense plays with fire and passion. Redman, Cochery and Miller were the only guys who looked like it meant something to them to win.

I'm officially rooting against the Steelers the last two weeks.
Go put on a Ravens jersey. You sound like one of their clueless fake followers. Get lost.

Has Victorian been cut yet?

Ironic name for such a loser of a player.

I haven't heard anyone use the old adage:
"You Can't Turn The Ball Over And Expect To Win!!!!!"

I have to put much of the o line woes at Ben's feet as well Not a lot, but some. He holds the ball too long, never seems to audible out of plays, diagnose blitzes, or go to his hot read. I get that the o line is bad and has been. But it just seems like other QB have the wherewithal to direct blitz pick up or deliver to hot read more effectively.

That's pretty petty. The kid hadn't played a meaningful down for us all season and was on the practice squad. Yes he sucked but you can't expect him to come in and lock down a guy like Miles Austin or Dez Bryant like Ike Taylor could. Ripping on these young guys with zero starting experience is counter-productive.
