    In a situation like that, it is hardly ever the QBs fault as it is him who calls the shots. So as much as Id love to throw it on BA, that one was on the WRs.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    You just had a feeling Ben was going to try and throw that one instead of spiking it. I just didn't have a good feeling though, the WR's didn't look like they were ready for it. So yeah that one is on the pass catchers as much as it was Ben for maybe leading his target just a tad too much. Either way it could have been a big play and it's something they better be ready for.

    It only took Ben to get a sprained foot, but BA did a good job today

    I'm not so sure about that. I think E.Sanders was the player without a clue on that play, Ward was running ahead of Sanders getting ready to block , Sanders simply never turned around.


    This is whats so disturbing about BA, I know he's not an idiot he just has trouble coming up with a game plan that fits out system. Today he showed he can do it and we all know that next week we'll be cursing and scratching out heads again.

    Very good game plan. I think Hines comment earlier in the week was because he was finally happy with the game plan. He knew it was going to work and it did.

    As much as I rip on Arians, have to give him his due. Very well-designed gameplan yesterday. Was a little surprised we didn't see the 'pistol' yesterday. That was brought out against Baltimore last year when Ben had a similar foot issue. That aside, BA stayed with what was working which is positive for him. The decent running game helped a lot too.

    Bruce Arians still needs to go.
    Mr. Comissioner, feel free to resoak those kerosene rags around your ankles for the 2011-2012 season. After the lockout the ants are angry as hell and more inclined to eat your candy ***! Thanks! --75Steeler
