Ben made his best throw of year and frankly one of best throws I've see all season.

That thing was ridiculous.

I thought Ben missed one throw yesterday-- he was leading someone to the sideline... can't remember if it was Bell or Rogers-- and the ball was a foot or so behind the right location, allowing the defender to make a play. Other than that, he was spinning it.

I've made that throw w a Nerf on the beaches of southern NJ a few times on the down and out into the ocean pattern.

That pass was a thing of beauty. Even Romo said "WOW, just wow".

Regarding Ben's play and more importantly, demeanor yesterday, to quote a past Tomlinism..."I liked the look in his eye!"

I hope he builds on that moving forward. It will certainly serve him (and us) well come playoff time.

Ben threw lasers in the first half. The offense was humming. Fun to watch.

Ben looked like vintage Ben. If he stays that way, wow! This will be a good year to be a Steelers fan.

Ben was throwing it on a different level yesterday. That's rare. NO ONE, except maybe Ben and Rogers a few years, throws the ball like that more than a handful of games in a year.

Ben hasn't been throwing it bad this year. He, as Romo pointed out, was "off about 6 inches" for the better part of the first quarter of a season. You wouldn't even notice it if guys were getting separation and you were giving your QB some easy throws.

Some of us called his demise premature. I'm glad he's back to spinning it like that.

People often fail to realize the NFL passing game is all about timing...on BOTH the QB and receiver. It isn't fair to say Ben is "a foot off" without knowing if the receiver is running a clean route or breaking off a pattern where he should be, etc. Ben essentially has 3 new receivers out there that he has to adapt to...Bryant (who has been gone 2 yrs), Juju, and McDonald. Ben also had very little preseason work to do that.
