I just showed where he pretty much singlehandedly got us to that SB in the first place. It wasn't our running game that won us the AFC championship that year, genius.

How nice to know you want your QB clutching in a AFC championship game rather than a clutch Superbowl.

Consistency is Big Ben's game that's for sure.

Ignorant? I made a thread worth 12 pages, how ignorant can it be?

Take a walk bud. Your preaching in the wrong thread.

I don't think there are many people on this board that would NOT say that Pittsburgh's bread and butter is the run game.

When the run game breaks down... Ben can take over.

Note the Cleveland game last season, where he scrambled for the 30+ TD run.

That's what he does. If I gave more of a sh*t I would do stat digging.

Ben is a perfect fit for what we need. He didn't even have time for his second read last week. OF COURSE he said it wasn't all the lines fault. Even if it were, is he supposed to throw them under the bus?

He had a poor QB rating in the Superbowl. Fact.

Steelers still win, though... That speaks volumes about the team's true strengths.

Strong defense, strong run.

As for not meshing well with the new coaching staff... Where's the proof? Is it because they didn't win the Super Bowl?

The Jacksonville game is all on Ben? I guess Ben missing the tackle on Garrard and NOT Tyrone Carter.

Even then... I don't put that game on Carter's shoulders.

Look around the league. You lock up quarterbacks that mesh with your team and play to your strengths.

For less money we could have Brodie Croyle, Rex Grossman, Jon Kitna, Tavaris Jackson, Kyle Orton, Matt Cassel... ehh.. screw it.

I think I'll let the Rooneys spend their bread for a leader.
