nice post... just shows how you can manipulate stats to show whatever you want really... you can have it show that a qb is terrible or that he is great... just on how you put the same numbers

But the point I wanted to make is, when Ben throws less than 30 times and we win, it's because we have a lead (that Ben contributes to) and it's a game of possession (running the ball, eating clock) in the second half. It's not like the coaches are not allowing him to throw... so would the opposite be true? if BR throws more than 30 times and we lose, it's because the steelers don't have the lead(which BR contributes to) and it's a game of passing in the second half?

The stat they should mention is how Ben is 3rd in the league, percentage wise, in converting on 3rd down situations. This shows that he can effectively convert those situations in the second half when we unsuccessfully run the ball on 1st and 2nd down.

It's never going to happen though, because the Steelers are not media-darlings so Ben doesn't deserve any credit.
