This thread is awfully “awful Ben” slanted. Most of you all will be eating your words quite soon.

Look up the philosophy of minimum effective dose. I think Ben and Tomlin have a sizable portion in their philosophy.

Minimum Effective Dose:
Practice as little as necessary, but as much as needed.
Throw as little as possible, but as much as necessary.
Score as little as possible, but enough to win.
Expend the least amount of energy during the week as possible, but do what it takes to be ready.
Expend the least amount of practice early on and then ramp it up at the end of the season.
Use the players sparingly in preseason.
Coach as little as possible, but as much as needed.
Hold your cards close to the vest, but reveal what is necessary.

Ben is fine and playing superbly. It will come together. All we need to do is take care of business and worry about one game. How to beat NE! They upgraded the secondary...check. I think this will be the Bulls finally beating the Pistons this year! In the regular season only; we will not see them in the playoffs.

Another thing about this 30 points non-sense; it makes business sense to employ a minimum effective points strategy. You start destroying the scoreboard, and the stats will follow for the QB, RB and WRs. When the stats follow the payroll goes up to the point where you begin needing to make unnecessary trade off decisions on personnel versus being middle of the pack in scoring.

Ben and the Steelers will finish gloriously on top of the mountain and he will be back next year for Terry’s record of 4 rings.
I agree with you. Not sure about not seeing the pats in the playoffs, though.

lol I find it so tedious to continually, put every Ben pass under a hyperbolic microscope.

Given how many posters lose their fucking minds easily, in game day threads, on any minuscule negative play, I don't know how many of you conjure the energy for all the Ben-dislike?!

It should be quite entertaining, when Landry runs the offense for a season or two!


I wouldn’t say microscope. He’s the big guy there throwing the fucking football.

Hey nobody more than me wants Ben to come out from the bye and go scotched earth en route to a SB mvp title. He’s not playing up to his standards. His play and his facial and body language are clear proof that he knows it.[/quote]

I think many are reading far too much into Ben's interpreted "body language." None of us can really gauge that, can we?! He does appear frustrated at times for multiple reasons.

We've had a lot of moving parts on offense to begin the season. Guys missing time and reps and the staff assuming Marty would come back and be the player he was pre-suspension. Seems like that was presumptuous of us to expect that. JuJu being acclimated into the offense, he is a rookie. Just the lfacr, Ben and the WR's having so little reps together.

All the talk about the offense putting up 30+ points per game. Distraction after distraction.
Yet, the team is 6-2 and some of the big pass plays they didn't hit on, at the beginning of this season, they are now making. Ben's YPA has gone up, aside from that horrific Jaguars game, he's playing better, and I think he will continue to play even better, during the second half of the season. I see lots of positives with the offense.[/quote]

Well the whole point of body language is for other people to gauge it. I mean that’s what’s body language is.

Any rate, bens a big boy with a fat ass bank account. I doubt he cries himself to sleep because an internet poster called yggy says he’s not been playing his best ball.

Th3 30 points goal thing actually came from Ben. I think it’s totally fine to have that as a goal.

I just think there's too much presumption and assumption as it relates to Ben's play.

I purposefully didn't log int SF for the game.

Glad I didn't. The game wasn't as bad as it was made to seem in subsequent posts. BR has indeed been below par, but that's better than above par for most. I'll take it. The pass to JuJu was a thing of beauty. DHB and Rogers should have caught those passes, even if they were slightly overthrown. Anything that touches your hands should be caught. That's 14 points right there.

Conversely, Detroit got fucked with a few plays in the red zone. Another 14 points for them, and the steelers still win.

Defense came up big, but needs some work with quality QB's.

If everything starts to click in the next few games, look out.

The pass to Rogers was not overthrown...not even slightly, he laid the ball right over his shoulder, right into ER hands. Flat out drop.
I’m all for being critical for discussion sake, but let’s not make shit up.

Hopefully with Bryant back the light goes on for Haley and he starts moving JuJu and Bryant around, running full route trees. I'd expect that to cause all kinds of confusion and worries for the defense.

The really surprising thing to me on that TD, was JuJu showed me that while he may not have the speed to run past guys, if he gets separation most DB's probably aren't going to close that gap.

I still think a good OC can manipulate defenses all kinds of ways with AB, JuJu and Bryant, and then slip in Bell or JJ (or MacDonald) to take advantage of voids created with big plays.

I seem to remember a comment or blurb that I think people have forgotten - PIT had to simplify/dumb down the offense. Bell missed camp, you had a number of young guys and new faces....it might explain the above average number of miscues and miscommunications we've seen.

Maybe as guys have gotten more comfortable Haley is opening-up the offense more, and as a result we're seeing better opportunities for the passing game.

Kodiak mentioned McDonald....where the hell was he the whole Lions game. Jesse James had his longest play ever, so i figure McDonald would have taken it to the house.

McDonald is a superior TE no if ands or buts.

I believe he was "out" because of injury.
