There is no "New NFL".

A good majority of the playoff teams this year can RUN the ball. Even the ones who are currently eliminated.

The Niners are in their 2nd consecutive NFC Title game because they could RUN THE BALL.

Seattle, Baltimore and Atlanta can RUN THE BALL.

Even New England, with Tom Brady could RUN THE BALL with nobody Stevan Ridley.

The leader on this team needed to be Tomlin, but instead, he was too busy padding people on the ass telling them good job after mistake after mistake. Losing to the Titans and the Raiders was unacceptable and those two losses had as much to do with a shitty season then Ben playing like an idiot.

So, Tomlin will need to re-evaluate his role in this thing. First thing you can do as an org, is get rid of the cancers. Mendy and Wallace. Sign the young guys and play the young guys who are performing. Sign Lewis, draft a safety can take over when Clark and Troy retire. Pray, for at least one (bleep) year that our offensive line doesn't get injured every other damn play.
Oakland and Tennesee were bad losses, but not worth losing sleep over.

The San Diego, Dallas, and Cincinnati losses were far more offensive.

Ben was a complete NON FACTOR in XLIII until the very end. That final drive really clouded the minds of how mediocre he played that day.

Seriously? Is EVERY FUCKING THREAD going to turn into a thread about how Ben's a terrible quarterback? I got news for ya.

If he isn't drafted in '04, we're the 4 time super bowl champs. The team as a whole had a bad season, which is normal with new coaches on board. Every time this team has a losing season this bullshit spews all over the place.

Statistics don't mean shit, buddy. He won the game. Plain and simple.

Do you know what stats got Peyton Manning in the playoffs? 9-11 and one Super Bowl win over Rex Grossman.

Let's talk about how stats got Drew Brees to the Super Bowl this year! Oh, wait a sec. Well, let's talk about how the Saints got into the playoffs on the back of Drew's 5000 yard year! Oh, shit, that too. Well, Stafford went for almost 5000 and they're in the playoffs competing for a title! What? They're picking top 5? My mistake.

Stats =/= success.

Look, another Ben fanboy putting words in other people's mouths.

Show me ONE Post from me or anyone that said Ben is a terrible QB who needs to be cut loose or traded.

Legitimate criticism of Ben =/= Get rid of him.
