Someone yesterday posted QB ratings for Ben at home vs. Rodgers on the road; it’s like 99.6 for Ben and Rodgers it’s 99.0

Rodgers has something like 305 TDs to 75 INTs. I don’t think Ben is as good as Rodgers, but I think Ben will have a better career and more rings when they are both done.

EDIT: it was TB, got to give him credit for the stats.

And yet Rodgers loses TWICE as often on the road, sucks in close games everywhere, and has rarely engineered a late comeback. Those stats TB posted are fun garbage.

I won’t get involved in your annual battle with TB about AR vs. BR. They are both great QBs, generational, Ben just needs one more ring for me to be fully satisfied with his career as a Steeler.

As you say, whatever it takes.

Haley's finishing Ben off, anyway. A shell of a once-great offense.

Honestly, I think it's because they struggle in the RZ and struggle to sustain drives - they're looking for "cheap chunks" in favorable situations.

Under Haley, it's never really been an offense that is a consistent chain mover topped off with consistent scoring. Too many boneheads across all 11 guys. The frequent lack of discipline and focus has been discussed ad nauseum - and that translates into an offense that rarely executes like a well-oiled machine even on its best days. It could also be the case (hardly mutually exclusive) that the playcalling doesn't facilitate consistently good execution.

Don't agree about Shazier..he was everywhere. Everything else is spot on.

One more thing. Ben has already retired.

Now if you all don't mind, I'll be busy taking shit from the locals.


Yeah, running by Bears RBs and missing tackles all game.

I thought he stunk.

Chicken and egg syndrome.

When forced to constantly be perfect, you're going to fuck up more.

I'd trust Matt Stafford to conduct a GW drive than I would BR at this point

That's something I thought I'd NEVER say

Especially when your OC is constantly trying to outsmart the defense by matching up to their strengths.
