Default Re: Starkey: The joke’s on the Steelers

The offense was moving along, not at a fast pace but at a "learning the offense pace", until Ben got hurt. He cam back and has looked WFUL. I don't blame the OC for that. Some of what the guy says is true of course but the play calling has nothing to do with some of the facts that I agree with in the article. Ben has lost his clutch game. I couldn't agree more. Don't know why but he has. I have backed Ben to the hilt on here but man he sucks in the clutch now OR to say it another way he is no longer the White Mamba. He has no killer instincts anymore. When we need to win, maybe not just have him be clutch but just not lose the game, he seems to fail now. Whether it's the picks or taking sacks that take us out of FG range, he needs to find that killer instincts again or we are sunk next year too.

I agree, but Ben is also stubborn. He wanted Arians, not Haley. I'm not sure if Ben doesn't like Haley as a person also, or if he's just being a jerk and giving Haley a big old f*ck you, but those two need to work it out somehow because I'm getting sick and tired of it. There is animosity between them and it is affecting the entire team. I blame it on Ben because it is utlimately up to him to execute the playcalling. Ben better watch himself and tread carefully. Steeler Nation never forgets.

Funny stuff, right here.......I get the joke. Although, Ben was actually doing good during the first part of the season, it was just the rest of the offense that was screwed up, so aside from the last 2 bed-shittings, I'd say Ben was one of the least of our problems and had a great season. The whole offense, however, was never potent, and never got better. If nothing changed on offense from last year, performance wise, then the blame goes higher up than the OC.

This is a fair point, however the defense was not nearly as affected by injuries, and Mike Wallace stayed healthy all season. IMO the injuries don't excuse looking like complete numbnuts, such as on offense and STs.
