We need to start using MacDonald in the seam more. I don’t understand why they aren’t, other than Tomley being an idiot.

Ben's writing checks his body can't cash. Not sure he's on fumes yet, but he might be getting close.


Man, he sure did earn a lot not to get himself in peak physical shape, though. But who knows. The guy is a fucking warrior. For all we know he is in a lot pain all the time.

I don't care how bad he gets. It won't erase Ben being one of the all time greats. They ought to hang a pair of bronze testicles where his bust would otherwise be in the hall of fame.

Ben's my all-time favorite Steeler QB and that's saying a lot. I saw the entirety of Terry Bradshaw's career and he's a God to me.

I worship Roethlisberger and we'll never see another guy like him in Pittsburgh.

That said, this is a different Ben. Been saying it all year, he'll have a few games that wow us this season, but that really special guy is nearly gone.

He's really laboring out there.

The offense was fun to watch in the first half except not enough TD's.

We have to find a RZ solution.

We have to keep the foot on the gas for 4 quarters or until we have a huge lead in the 2nd half.

I don't know if either of those is going to happen.

But it is for Boswell. And it is for Tomlin.


We'll agree to disagree. Boswell has plenty of leg for a 50 yarder and punting there would have been moronic.

No matter how you slice it, rookie mistake to take a sack there. Ben was better than he was vs. the Jags, but very little of what he did was impressive.

Shell of the old Ben, at this point, as Lit pointed out.


But still an impressive outing, playing away AT KC, not home like Jags. Really loud too. Impossible to hear at the LOS - very tough environment to play in.

Always impressive to win in KC but Ben wasn't anything special.

We're all used to seeing him do special things. They don't happen very often anymore.

Watson's a fucking hammer who hasn't been stopped once this year in short yardage.

So what do we do at the goal line? We have Ben in the shotgun and try a delayed hand off to Bell.

After throwing on first down.

DeCastro was an absolute ass kicker in the first half. He was just destroying guys when he pulled.

Just wanted to give credit where it's due.

Spot on. I love the guy. Near HoF level career. Fuckin warrior. Held on for a great win today.

Unless he is able to flip a switch, he has been a net minus for the team. He is really limiting this offense, which Haley has already neutered, so far this year.

VWill injured his hip in today's game as a result did not return. Looks like his return for next week is not certain. Also Gilbert did re-injure his hamstring. He did not pull himself out of the game as Stosh had wishfully suggested in the game thread. Too bad.

Quote:
The most notable injury was to right tackle Marcus Gilbert. Gilbert, who had missed the previous three games with a hamstring injury, re-injured the same hamstring, per Mike Tomlin in his post-game press conference, which is bad news for Gilbert. There is little-to-no chance Gilbert plays this Sunday vs. the Bengals, and could be out of the lineup until after the bye week to allow the hamstring to fully heal.

Inside linebacker Vince Williams injured his hip, and his availability moving forward is certainly in question, depending on the severity of the injury. Tyler Matakevich came into the game to replace Williams, and stayed in the game for the duration of the game https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2 ... t-williams

If you think Ben has had only a near HOF career.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ben had a great first half. They attacked the middle of the field, and made a lot of hay. Only like what we all were talking about. In the second half, complete turtle ball.

I agree to a point zeke. I just can't dismiss the redzone famine. Not like the redzone failure is anything new either.

It's still in question man. He needs to go out on a high note to seal the deal.

Bell had over 100 yards rushing at the half and we led 12-3 at the half. 2 of those points came off a KC fuck up safety.

Ben wasn't great in the first half.

Ben had 123 yards in the first half. He had one miss. One throw away in the EZ and one held Bell away from a TD. Had a 70%+ CMP; 8.2 YPA. If Brown runs through his route, he likely would've had closer to an 8.6 YPA.

That is a very good half on the road. If you don't think that was good half, well... I haven't a clue what a good half looks like. Was it an A+ 1st half? Nope, but B+/A-? Certainly. Likely an A-. Keep in mind Ben engineered a 97 yard drive.

Exactly. That's a damn good half in Arrowhead. I still can't believe they missed Bell getting grabbed around the waist on that 3rd and goal. Cost us (and Ben) a TD. Was he perfect? No, but I saw more of those intermediate lasers that he is known for this game. That gives me hope Ben is starting to click more.

Franco32 -- they let Ben attack the middle of the field and it worked. No more U offense. Attack the whole field.

I know you said this in the heat of the moment, but that was one helluva prepared team today, They seriously outcoached the Chiefs today. Marvelous scouting and adjustments.

Did he or did he lock on to the mismatch with Bell on a LB and throw to him before Brown came open?

Not only that, but Bell beat his man and the throw was on target for a TD-- egregious non-call on the DPI. Not sure why we want to blame Ben for that, except that we blame Ben for everything.

...was an awful non-call. With all the marginal stuff they call in this league, that one was obvious.....cost us 4 points.
