The only other thing I can say is...

Ben is not a stand in the pocket passer. He never was and won't be. He fits the epitome of the Steelers team which is smashmouth and sometimes ugly. We have to have a qb like that to fit our offensive line. Only once did he have time to throw deep (to Wallace) and he didn't even come close.
He excels in eluding defenders and hitting a receiver well past the planned routes.

I am happy with 2 SB wins, 1 loss with him. Did you see how Rodgers threaded passes to receivers. gay actually had awesome coverage on the TD play. He just didn't turn his head.

Why does everybody always want to categorize players as winners or losers?
All I can say is that he has gotten us to 3 SB's. Yes we lost one but it was a team loss. Anybody fail to recognize how many games he won us by rallying the troops?

i cant understand how anyone can say the better team lost. Green Bay played far superior and we were lucky we stayed in the game till the end. we couldnt throw the ball as acurate as them and our defense couldnt stop them. the best team won the superbowl this year.

no need to complain or make up excuses, the game is over and we lost. we lost to a great team. i have always said i felt Aaron Rodgers will someday be known as the best QB to ever play the game and he tore us up.

And in this case ADD stands for Absolute Dumb-ass Detection and my Spidey sense is tingling off the charts, moron. It has nothing to do with not having an attention deficiency, but rather the super-ability to rapidly identify a complete blithering idiot asshat with no common sense and a severe disconnect with reality. There was no reason to read any further into your silly diatribe beyond that point because you had very succinctly proven yourself to be as dumb as a bag of broken hammers in a mere 13 words. You should be proud of yourself for being able to pull that off so quickly and effectively so as not to waste people's valuable time reading your drivel.


Thank you for not further subjecting everyone to your long winded rambling stupidity. The board is much smarter for your stellar efforts.

the 49ers played far superior when they beat the chargers.

dallas played far superior when they beat the bills.

every team that beat the broncos in their 1st 3 sb's played far superior.

the packers certainly werent far superior, and the only "great" team i saw on sunday was the one who had been in 3 of the past 6 sb's.



a team who cant even run the ball or prevent the opposition's offense from scoring 25 points, after taking the ball away 3 times, is FAR from great.

I believe Green Bay was the better team (Steelers did not put together a full game in the playoffs and were 2-4 against playoff teams in the 2010 regular season - that is a body of work that can be judged as a team that admirably overachieved))

But any team that needed to win the last game of the season to make the playoffs as a wildcard and has a history of letting teams back into playoff games in the second half presumptively is not a great team - at least not yet - Green Bay is a young team that might grow into greatness if Rodgers history of concussions and the salary cap do not derail them but it is tough to string together multiple championships given the way the NFL is structured

Great teams are the 1978 Steelers, 1989 49ers and the early 90s Cowboys that flattened the opposition in the playoffs

Exactly.

The Pack was the better team THAT DAY, and they deserved to win. The OP was only suggesting the Steelers are a better team overall and I agree. Without the turnovers, we win. Had we got whipped by a superior team, I, and many other Steeler fans would have accepted it and moved on. Instead, we are lamenting over the fact we shoulda, coulda, woulda won. This wasn't a 55-10 whipping the 49'ers laid on the Broncos.

What I find stupid is that many on this board suggest the OP be banned or to suggest he go look for another team because he is critical of Big Ben. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and part of being a fan is being critical of your team.

I like Big Ben.
Why? Because he fits our system, and this franchise hasn't had a decent QB since Bradshaw, so I'm not complaining.

Is Ben an elite QB? Hell no. Elite QB's are pretty. Ben at times looks elite, and other times he looks like a complete buffoon...but as long as he keeps taking us to Super Bowls, I'll take the big, tough, scrappy, buffoon any day.
