Default Are you kidding me!

There's a lot of people on this forum taking the loss correctly. That being said I can't believe some of the things I've read on this forum by our own fans about Ben. Yes Ben lost this game, big deal, it's one game. I know it was the Super Bowl but some of you are acting like it's more then one game. He's not going to be superman every game. I read that some people on here now think Rodgers is better then Ben. Horsesh*t! Because he's one half as many super bowls as Ben or because his record in close games is now 5-12 instead of 4-12? He had a good year and he's a good QB, that's all, he's not anywhere near Ben's normally high quality of play. I also heard saw one of us say "If Ben can't do it he needs to step aside and let someone else do it". Ben does it 4-5 a year, if you want more then that then you are expecting to much, it's not him doing to little. He plays great and when he doesn't his 4th quarter play is usually enough to still win. And then others saying that the bad game is "part of his personality". No, the bad game is a bad game. You didn't see people saying that about Brady in the lost to the Jets. On the field play has nothing to do off the field behavior for the most part. Looking around on here seeing stuff I'd hear from the media about Ben as if this loss means that he's still the same guy, doesn't make a damn bit of sense. Now this doesn't apply to a lot of you on here but I had to say something. It's a damn same this rubish is being put out there on our own forum.

I agree, I think we're all just dissapointed in the loss. Ben didn't come through this time, like we count on.

We've got next year, The O-line will be healthy, the young wide receivers will have a whole year to get better, and Lebeau is going to fix this secondary problem.

I think losing the SB will only make them hungrier next year.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

I honestly respect yours as well...but right now we've got more than enough Ben threads to go around lol. All you did really was create a new thread for the same argument to continue in.

Lol, I know it's frustrating. But some of the things I see in my opinion cross the line. If that's how people feel about a QB who gives them winning seasons and playoff trips almost every year, 3 super bowl appearances, 2 championships AND SLAYS THE RAVENS EVERY TIME THEY PLAY then maybe they should get behind the media hype and go join a GB or Patriot forum. I usually don't like to step on toes here, but come on.

some guy on another site suggested Ben might have had a slight concussion yesterday and looked a little dazed out there. another said he is purely a drama queen faking when he landed on his knee then right after ran for about twenty yards. Ben is basically a target scapegoat so anything that goes wrong will be the first to blame.

I get tickled thinking about Ben going forward with the engagement and getting married, starting a family and having children. but that's a little off topic.

I agree last night wasn't his best performance and don't care for his off-field antics but there's no other QB I'd rather have leading our team. Fits perfectly with Steeler football, IMO, and is always entertaining to watch. No way the loss last night was all Ben's fault.
