i worry about Stafford but they have no running game at all.

This is what concerns me. The Lions don't have an "acknowledged" run game. It's very possible they could have after this game. The Steelers are very average vs the run. Especially if Tuitt is still out. My hope is they do not over look this team's potential going into Detroit. I think y'all know what I'm trying to say.

Hmmm ?.....let me think on that for a bit

I always liked reading the posts on bets when we used to be on Stillers - especially when the losers didn't settle up.

Isn't that the nature of football? You run your routes, take your assignment like it were the super bowl. Next man up? I don't deny you can get complacent, but he's taking it to extremes, and didn't even wait for the second half of the season before he started whining. Whether or not he's influenced by his agent or girlfriend is another matter, but there is no doubt in my mind he needs an altitude check.

14/17. 82% success rate. 3 TDs, no INTs.

Don't really think it's an issue.

recency bias

Confirmation bias as well.

Only 1 deep ball in the bunch. Must be another Steelerfury urban legend, like a lot of things about the players and playcalling.

I will take that bet at $100 to the podcast team if Bryant is on the field for 75% of the snaps.

Deal ?

Bryant is #3 on the team in targets (behind AB and Bell). And his 36 targets on the year are more than guys like Mohamed Sanu, Nelson Agholor, and Danny Amendola. I don't disagree that Ben was forcing the ball too much to AB, but I completely disagree that he's been getting 'lulled to sleep'

Attitude check, no doubt.

But with a guy who has had his issues staying on track-- you keep him engaged. After the bye, I guess.

That targets stat is useless without context. Sanu gets a full route tree. Bryant gets two routes and a 0 screen. Dude has had thee targets on routes different than those three this year, had a nice grab on an out route, a 25 yard gain on a post/dig, and a slant TD. The problem to me is that we only have him running two routes. That's such bullshit.
