If you say so.You could say Roethlisberger peaked after his first season, because he rarely throws for more than 20 touchdowns.
Because he's a Bengal people will blast him! He's a solid player in a great system! Gruden is getting the most out of his young QB and wr.
Dalton is a good young QB, but much like Duante Culpepper with Randy Moss, I'd like to see what he could do without his All-World WR, AJ Green. Once Moss was taken away from Culpepper, Culpepper became pretty ordinary overnight.

We sit back and play the garbage soft zone that beats them in crunch time constantly.
4th and 15 to Matt Cassell up three points.
4th and game against the Ravens last season.
4th and game against the Ravens in 2009 without Ben.
Why LeBeau simply won't stay with what works, in key spots, is a mystery.
You then throw out a couple of examples where you feel they should have blitzed. Want to bet that we could easily come up with as many or more instances where they did blitz and play press coverage and got burned? (Playoff loss to Denver last year ring a bell?) The problem is you "see" what you want to "see." Sometimes it is not the play calling and it is just the players not executing. If they did blitz Dalton on the play in question and he threw a TD to Green you would still be b!tching because that is what b!tches do.
We didn't blitz Tebow at all. We sat back and waited for him to make a mistake.
Just like we did with Carson Palmer this season.
No, I would rather lose a game making a QB beat my best stuff, instead of sitting back and handing it to him. You give AJ Green a free release on that play? Tackle him at the snap, at worst it's 5 yards if they don't complete a pass from our 41 with little time left except for a Hail Mary.If they did blitz Dalton on the play in question and he threw a TD to Green you would still be b!tching because that is what b!tches do.
LeBeau's 4th quarter scheme has sucked for years.
Because they back off and concern themselves with chewing clock rather than making plays.
Ben should have never been in that position. When they turtled and ran the ball from their own 46 three times before a Ben scramble on 3rd down? They should have went to OT.
What sense did it make? Turtle from the 46 with 3 minutes to go, and then throw the ball starting at your own 11 with :44 to go.
If that's Arians? People would want him shot.
But not the jagoff who was a ball boy for this team 40 years ago.
