It's pretty bad, but I've noticed that Ben has gone back for getting it all. Ben was at the 15 and he kept going for the endzone. Finally on 3rd down he passed to Sanders for 9 yards, but 4th and 1 and they didn't get the first down. If they did that in the beginning then that would've been another TD.

They went back to trying to get it all in one shot. Why?

I have faith that it'll get fixed but it's extremely frustrating. Score should've been 50-0.

Actually I thought Ben should've ditched the glove. Two of his overthrows were solely because of the glove. He loses a bit of accuracy and touch with those gloves on.

It's cold out there bro. His hand would probably get a bit numb with the glove off, and that'd be even worse. My theory.

he was like 13/15 196 yds in the 1st half.

67% for the game. many w/o gloves in warm weather dont do much better.

anyways i have crunched the numbers and according to my calculations the steelers will increase their PPG 3-6 points if they simply kick a fg on 1st down as soon as they cross the 20.

it appears they waste about 9-12 minutes dicking around in the red zone trying to run, taking sacks and missing fg's this season .

by not wasting this time, they will gain 1-2 more offensive possessions per game, and suisham has just about been money (far better than reed).

BA is a genius. nobody would see it coming, and it would catch the entire league off guard.

infact, im willing to bet we defeat cleveland next weekend 15-6 by employing this new revolutionary tactic.
