Wallace and Brown are good because Ben is a good QB (one of the tops in the league). Yes, if they played for another team, say the Jets, they'd be much worse off.
Ben did have a heck of a game in the previous Super Bowl, with an offensive line far worse than that. Could have been the MVP in that game, if not for Holmes' heroics.
Wow this thread is entertaining....lol I really don't buy into the theory of Tomlin winning with Cowher's players....But at the same time I'm not really happy with Tomlin at all.....This team continues to look very unprepared on the road and really the Steelers are an undisciplined football team...Reflections of the HC and all we get from Mikey T is witty cliches....lol
As for the whole offensive line argument....The whole entire offense is better when the starting unit stays intact......Trouble is the Steelers will never keep the whole entire starting unit intact......Pouncey and Gilbert are hurt all the time.....What is it with offensive lineman from Florida?.......lol
I'd be happy to just never hear the phrase " we tip our caps to those guys" again or see it in print from the HC. Instead, take the cap off and get some discipline reinforced to start getting rid of penalties.
Ben was 24/40, 363 yards, 1TD, 1 INT. But since Pouncey was out, I guess he was sacked a lot, huh? Well, no. Sacked once for a 7 yard loss. So, where is the Ben is no good without Pouncey part? Because it sure doesn't show up in the stats, and didn't show up in the three Super Bowls Ben played in without him.
