jman, the O-line didn't show up in pass protection...again. this is something that is going to hurt them all year. on some run plays there were 3 to 4 blue jerseys in the backfield.

the defense allowed 3 TDs. one was the result of a BR's INT throw.

offense gave the ball up 3 times. two of the TOs resulting in 14 points.

i think both sides of the ball deserve blame, IMO.

finally three days after that painful loss, cooler heads are prevailing. i'm glad to see that other people realize that the offense (game plan) was not our main problem.

poor execution was the biggest problem. poor defense was def a bigger part then poor offense.

I did say feel free to call out the O-line....

Why are you talking about D? I said they were the problem.

So BR threw 2 pics...So did Peyton on MNF this week.

Just my opinion.

The blame is on the PUKE Performance the ENTIRE TEAM Showed all game long until the very end, and then they Puked up their livers again on Defense allowing Denver...Effing DENVER to drive down the field and kick a winning field goal. The Loss is the Entire Teams Loss, and it sucks, cause really...Denver? They Suck.

So losing two games to teams we are clearly more talented than sucks...but then again...a shut out against Seattle, a beat down of Cleveland a Smack down on Buffalo and a beating handed to San Fran, are fine....just game plan and win this week and the Ship will be back afloat and we can talk about "how awesome" things are and "he's so good" at this or that position.

Losses suck, its all of our fault...Now I need to go watch game film so I can game plan in my mind how to beat Cincy and scream at the TV when we call a deep throw on 1st and 10 from our own 40 instead of handing it to willie off right tackle. Cause that's my game plan and dang it they should be listening to me...

what has he improved a lot since his rookie year?

you can relax. i am not saying he is bad or even average. you can go back to worshiping your fathead poster
What QB would you rather have back there? I doubt even Manning or Brady could do much better considering the piss poor protection Ben has.

Ben has clearly improved fromhis first 2 seasons. He is throwing the ball much more often than the 15 or so attempts he averaged in those seasons. And despite throwing more often and having horrible pass protection, his passer rating has INCREASED.....explain that genius

Keep hating and thinking Ben sucks, whatever

Maybe you should go hang out in the "Fair Weather FAns" thread

The Steelers played a sloppy game and commited 3 turnovers, and it still took Denver a last second field goal to beat them. This team may not be New England or Indy good right now(Noboby is), but we'll see what they do the next couple weeks against the AFC North and in December.

Lots of improvement and adjustments to be made.
