Default Re: Ben admits he rushed back too soon

People can't believe there is a happy medium. Either Ben is great or Ben sucks and blew the whole season. The defense was just as much at fault for not making the playoffs this year as the offense was. When Ike went out, the D went out the window. Lebeau refused to put his CBs on the WRs and chuck them. They just got 10 yard passes over and over and over on second and third down.

Face it. Ben is a pretty good QB (not great) and the coaching staff is pretty good (not great) Pretty good only gets you so far in the NFL.

Am I missing something? Where could I find that he blamed his performance for his rush back?

Ben playing injured is costing us games, and in this case, possible runs to the SB. We need a steady OL, and a dependable, young and capable QB. Anything else and we will be saying the same thing next year.
Did you see how our backups played? They were awful, it was a miracle we won the Baltimore game. The offensive output was painful. An injured Ben was our best option to win, and it just didn't happen. Maybe Lefty will be ok, I think his poor play was due to the injury he suffered during the game and he actually has an arm. But Batch is toast and has been for 2 years now.

You guys crying that it was all bad decisions....the ball he threw at Wallace that was picked off in OT was thrown badly behind Wallace and into the defenders arms. A good throw and its a completion.
Well said.

I can barely throw if I have a hangnail... let alone a separated rib tendon.

An injury like that can make a pass be "only" one yard off... but, that "one yard" can be all that it takes to go from completion to INT.

Furthermore, being "open" in the NFL is a difference of inches (not even a yard). A WR has to be thrown open... and, again, it's hard to throw a WR open, when one can barely throw.

Typical Ben.

Honestly, you guys are always claiming Brady is this huge skirt but take a look at Ben. He's constantly making excuses and looking for sympathy. He looks for sympathy about 3 or 4 times a season with his constant harpings on his injuries to the media.

I can think of no other player in the league who mentions his injuries to the media more than Big Ben. Woe is me, all the time.

I just don't think a quarterback with true grit is constantly whining to journalists about how hurt he is.

Steeler fans over estimate and in some cases even completely invent the `toughness` of Big Ben.

Tell me about it. Roethlisberger has played a full 16 game season one time in his 9 seasons. Brady has not missed a game in the last 10 outside of his injury season. Manning has not missed a game in his career outside of his injury season.

Somehow Ben is way tougher than those "soft" quarterbacks who could never play behind the Steelers line. Meanwhile the Pats O-Line has 2 undrafted free agents starting.

The Colts "elite" O-Line Manning went to the superbowl with was an UDFA, UDFA, 4th and 5th round players + 1st round LT. Manning's elite line had 1st round pick and 4 players who nobody considered any good. Did not miss a game for 11 seasons but he is soft.

So Ben's terrible Cincy game was because of his ribs?

1st game back - 285 yds 3 tds 1int 88 rating

2nd game back - 339 yds 2td 1int 94 rating

Now his ribs flare up

3rd game back - 220 yds 1 td 2 int (including the pick 6 that lost the game) 58 rating

The real question is:
In the portion where the WRs & RBs are singing (near the end), who is the dude standing still, staring angrily forward, and not singing???

Prior to injury: 4 INTs in nine games.

After return: 4 INTs in three games.

Also, in his first game back, looked like crap. Was down by 24 points before he even threw his first TD.

Lastly, it won't matter what I say. You will find a way to ignore anything & everything anyone says. That is why you & Gofor7 are so perfect for each other: the two of you can debate with each other over & over & over & over & over... in every single thread... and say the same things to each other... in every single thread... and totally ignore each other.

You two are a match made in heaven (albeit, on different sides of the debated topics).

So, please, direct your posts to Gofor7... he, like you, enjoys posting the same drivel ad nauseum.
