I just watched it, and i have to let some steam out now.. Its either that, or total annihilation of the television..
First of all: Our defence missed Woodley. Timmons really didnt fill up as much as i expected him to do, and that killed us. Payton is just to good if he gets time in the pocket, which he did.
Big Ben.. Alot have been said about this guy prior this game, and it clearly shows just how many homers there is on this site.. Ben needs to sit a game or two. The man is just not capable winning at the moment. Yes i said it! I know half of SA is going to track down where i live and sent various of dangerous decieses towards me, but its the truth. Lets just break hes game down:
First drive was really good! He did everything right, and we scored a touchdown. Nice!
Then we scored another touchdown, which was also great, but from there on it all seemed to xplode into a big bowl of suck! He didnt throw hard enough, he threw to low on ALOT of throws. He made 2 Interceptions at times where you don't make interceptions... For crying out loud... 1min left in first half 3'n'2 with a RB who is avg. 5.4 per carry and you decide to throw the ball.. Okay, i guees thats accaptable.. You can always punt it, but no.. He throws it right to a colts player... Granded, he was open (the colt player that is), but thats about the only open player that was on the field at the time, so props to ben for finding him.. The second interception is as stupid.. Ward was nowhere near that ball, but obviously, Big Ben finds the open man (again on the opposite team..).
You can't blaime this on Arians, nor on the line, because he had time to throw today. He just threw so bad i couldnt believe it.
Now again, i know alot of you ppl is going to declair war on denmark for writing this, but this was ben's loose, and the games we have lost have been.. He needs to get healthy and get some comfident back, or else this is not going to be a play-off season.. The ravens are playing way too good, for the steelers to play sloppy as this.
And please, don't give me the: We are 6-3.. its not a bad score? No its not, but its not proving anything.. We have beaten semi-core teams (at the time..) and when we met teams who's actually at the same level as us, we have lost.
