    You clowns are going to be in for a rude awakening once Ben leaves this team.
    Brady: 5 Super Bowl appearances, 3 wins.
    Ben: 3 Super Bowl appearances, 2 wins.

    Brady > Ben

    Ben's won more than Brady since he came into the league. Brady's won NOTHING since SpyGate.

    Right. Keep repeating the lie until it's true. See Brady's performance against the Giants in Superbowl 42 or Manning's performance against us in the 2005 divisional game. They would face that kind of pressure EVERY GAME behind our line. ****, two thirds of the time Ben can't even complete a damn drop without having to duck at least two opposing defenders who are right in his grill. The only thing that has saved him from being beat up a lot worse and being forced to retire from injuries up to now is his elusiveness.

    Not only do I hope the offensive line manages to actually stay healthy for a change next season, I hope Bicknell brings a lot more to the table as a coach than Kugler and the email porn king did.

    To be brutally truthful...

    The key to this whole season is Bicknell's coaching and the conditioning of the O-line. If we have the same old O-line, then the season is already a wrap.

    Everyone....and I mean everyone...needs to focus in on what is being done different with the O-line and what new conditioning techniques are the O-linemen doing to stay in better shape. No one is asking these questions of Tomlin and co. No one.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    No it isn't. It's play-calling. It's formations.

    Get rid of the fullback.

    Get rid of 2 TE sets.

    Get rid of having the RB lined up almist 9 yards behind the LOS on 2nd and 3rd and short.

    Five All Pro's on the line couldn't block when plays are tipped off based on formation and personnel.

    Logic would still say that if Ben keeps the ball longer the OL is running east and west, north and south and taking alot of stupid hits too cover Ben running around, they will get hurt more often.....

    Quicker passes and kill the play if needed. A little Ben ball is good when absolutely needed.


    That should save the OL too.

    I completely agree with the RB being like 9 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Drives me nuts........I don't study every one of our plays and sitting on the couch each Sunday I can figure out many of the plays.

    I do feel good with our OL, WR and ST coaches are new. We needed that just to change things up.

    I think we will have a good year but next year is when we turn it up again.

    I would agree if they had been able to find a superior replacement to Batch. In fact, they still have not.
