400 yards?...thats a stretch considering the Steelers penchant for sitting on 2nd half leads with the running game...
It is a stretch. But his knack for stretching the field is getting better. If we come upon a great run defense then who knows. If the odds were high I'd go with 400.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

Hate to be the bearer of bad tidings here, LITP, but a QB's greatness is not determined by the number of yards he throws for - it's his overall contribution to his team and to the game, his leadership and of course, the number of W's that he has had a hand in, including leading his team to the ultimate W - the Super Bowl. With Ben - I think he's well met all of these and did it in his first two seasons as a pro - quite an accomplishment, I'd say.

Really?

I'd always thought of total yardage as the most important statistic for a QB.

Well - duh (in my best blonde voice) - is the above your post or not? You didn't use any smilies so I would say it was safe for me to assume that you were serious.

Yeah take Montata's overall yardage and compare him with alot of others.. who would ya reather have? I dont give a rats ass about total yardage unless is fantasy football stats. I want a QB who wins, that is most important stat thier is.
