Remember...

YOU aver that 8-8 is the most important statistic.

So, let's focus on that.

I am adamant that the most critical person on that offense is BB. AND, when he was healthy, the team was 6-3; when he was sidelined or injured, the team was 2-5. In turn, by my estimation, I say that the correlation between the 2-5 record and not having BB is pretty freakin' "HIGH."

As in: NO other factor matters.

Play calling. Who cares? The same plays got 6-3.

Ownership. Who cares? Same "meddling" (your words) owners during the first nine games.

Hmmm... what's the difference? Oh, not having BB!!!

The only factor that matters is having a healthy BB (6-3) versus not having a healthy BB (2-5).

But, please, keep saying "8-8"... and ignoring the importance of BB.

I agree with teegre.

Roethlisberger is the best improvisational quarterback ever and the best in the 2 minute drill ever and somehow him being out/hurt does not hurt the Steelers chance to win. That is a real slap in the face to Roethlisberger.

I will get on Roethlisberger as much as the next guy for his inconsistency and refusal to buy into team concepts but his playmaking ability is extraordinary and he certainly gives the Steelers the best chance to win.

Putting this season on Haley and not on Ben's injury is an injustice to us all!

Shame on you GoFor7!

So in that case you admit Ben just made Haley look good with his play calling?

Thanks for proving my point.

No, the playcaling that was working during our 6-3 stretch was all Haley. We started losing when Ben got hurt, had a new baby, and starting doing his sandlot thing behind a smashed up Oline.

Also, we lost two games due to the defense missing 3 or 4 of our starting CBs. That has nothing to do with Haley. His offense did what it could for the defense-- it kept it fresh.

If any OC calls a play for a healthy BB and then calls that same play for an INJURED BB... there is going to be a difference in the execution of those plays. Be it Arians (the San Fran game last year) or Haley (the last seven games this year).

But, again, you apparently see no difference between an injured BB and a healthy BB. Likewise, you see no difference between BB and Byron/Charlie.

Q: So, who would you rather have than BB: Byron or Charlie? Because, as it is now, you apparently felt hat there is no difference between the three.

Speaking of Ben, I just saw on ESPN the top rated QB's for the last 5 years in games played below the freezing mark. Ben had the 4th highest QBR. (Aaron Rogers was first)

Sh*t. No wonder he didn't play well in the 3 SBs he played. They were all indoors.
Let's hope he plays one in Green Bay and one in Alaska before the end of his career.

Maybe Goodell's European expansion will get us an away game in Iceland.
