I agree.

Also, despite popular misconception everywhere, here, ESPN, and every stupid analyst in the world it seems.

Ben is not a guy who "plays best" or "likes to be out of the pocket".

I have seen Ben stand in the pocket, make all his reads, and deliver missiles and frozen ropes right to his receivers or backs.

It's just that over his career, he has not had the kind of protection that say Brady has.

He's had to make make plays, more often than not because he's been forced to.

Does his completion percentage go up when he's outside the pocket?

Of course it does. But so do his attemptS at.

This is all a big credit to Ben's talent to stay cool...not his choice.

People miss the point on this.

In closing..the damn O-Line better open some damn large holes and give Ben light years of time tonight. IT'S THEIR JOB!!!!!!

I'm getting psyched up for this game already and it's only 5:43pm here in Texas.

Besides the game I flew to Pittsburgh to see earlier this year,...
(They beat the crap out of the crybaby Seahawks and Mike Homo-gren...21-0)
...this will be just the 2nd or 3rd Steeler game I have been able to see this year.

Sucks sometimes being a Steeler fanatic way down here.

GO BIG BEN...GO FAST WILLIE...GO TROY..AND HEY HINES...LET'S GET OPEN HUH!
