As for whining on the sidelines, you can't respect a team leader that gets fired up and fires up the players around him?

I wish we would have had somebody on the Steelers sideline doing that last night. Anybody trying to get a spark going or something.
Brady was lighting guys up because they didn't convert a 3rd down, and look at how they performed in general, a lot better than us.

As for your other conjecture, that Manning and Brady are only elite QBs because of their offensive lines. That's a statement that can't be proven with rationality, so we can leave it on the floor with the rest of the speculation where it belongs. Didn't you notice Brady releasing the ball pretty quickly last night? A lot of us have said it before but Ben is not as good as other QBs at quickly finding the open zone and getting passes out on time, his great talent is in making time to help create a play. Manning and Brady are much better at the former.
I can respect a leader, just not one who carriers on like he does. He is exactly like Ovechkin "off skates" I never said Manning and Brady were elite "only" because of their O lines. Reread my "CONJECTURE" And rewatch the game from last night and you'll see Harrison went into the pile, Timmons went into the pile to drive it back and Brady was right there pointing at the head lines man for a flag. Give me a friking break. Let the guys call the game. He does this game in and game out. I never see Manning asking for flags. Brady is a primadonna. Rewatch the tape and watch Brandy be atch (that means Bitch) and then conjecture your thoughts once they are educated.

all sorts of teams send the house and kitchen sink vs the steelers. pretty much been the story ever since we got rid of a true fullback.

but like in the case of defeating the zone blitz, all teams dont have the people or talent to pull off the scheme successfully.
Browns are terrible at it, and only did it 3 times the last steelers game.
Cinicy does it when they are down, they play conservative most of the game.
Cowboys just suck and can't do anything right.
Giants did it well, Eagles have always done it well, Patriots doit in a fashion that confuses Ben.

Teams that do it the most are the ones that beat the Steelers. Cinicy could have beat the Steelers if they did it earlier in the game. Ravens constantly destroy Steeler offenses, and they actually get more sacks when they only rush 3 than when they rush 6. Teams will do it more often. Its not that they do it, every team has atleast 1 or 2 all out blitzes a game, but to do it constantly takes a lot of skill and balls and I have yet to see many teams do it this year except the last 3 games.

First, the accusation that my ideas are "uneducated" in contrast to yours isn't even laughable, it's just crude and hard to believe.

Next, you said "what seperates Brady is the offensive line". Leading me to believe the only difference you see between Ben and Brady is the 5 guys up front.

Now, can you give me a link to the moment in the game you are talking about with Brady> I am interested in watching it.

I also noticed in your post you had ample emotional reactions to Brady saying things like "I hate him as much as anyone or anything". Pretty strong feelings for a guy who is just doing his job, and doing it at a high level.

"Crude and hard to believe" because I called you uneducated ? Are you really a football fan? Get over the crudeness or move on. Don't put words in my mouth, or make assumptions. Read them as they appear. "What separates" does not imply "the only difference." There is more than one instance as I mentioned so "the moment" in the game could constitute a multiple of choices. As far as providing you with a link to the exact location in the game, yeah that will happen. Ask others on this board and I'm sure you'll hear it opposite as you think. Maybe you can read my emotions a little further when I tell you to wake up and post on a site where you make sense. You are seriously being critical of my words of hatred for Brady as pretty strong? Not as strong as the tea and crumpets that you're trying to force feed us football fans. Wake up private Pyle and look around you. And you mention laughable, crude and hard to believe?? We'll allow others to read your concern and shake their heads in disbelief of your babble. This will be my last reply to you as I'm in disbelief of your poor football knowledge. Put that in your conjuncture pipe and smoke it.

Well that was nothing but an ad hominem rant. That's the equivalent of waiving the white flag for your argument.

All I did as was ask you for a little proof of the one concrete claim you made (the rest were subjective, emotional, and speculative) and you say "yea that'll happen". The rest of what you said seems a defensive insecure rant.

Sorry dude, I thought you had an interest in a real discussion, this is the internet, there's no way to tell who's arguments are going to be laughable and fatuous and who is actually going to make sense, I promise not to bother you anymore. Take care.

He does. And he comes off as a big baby.
Yinz all remember this one??
A couple years ago when the Pats played the Ravens and after a pass play someone barely grazed Brady with a hand...and he started jumping up and down like a 12-year-old-girl, pointing etc.
After the game, Ray Lewis gives his post-game interview and calls Brady out big time, telling him this is a man's game, to take off the dress, etc.
If you haven't seen it, try looking around for that interview online. That might have been the best interview/statement i've ever seen. Priceless.

Offense didn't look great either, but had that been any other team, this would have been a win to be honest.
last season against green bay. i only remember because Aaron Rodgers won me a game in fantasy football that week

Yeah...I had forgotten about that one till I looked at all the previous schedules late last night. Most likely forgot about it because we won...but it's still very rare that an offense scores that many points.

I was tired and ticked last night...forget my whole post lol.
