Nope, the steelerfury.com board is still working on the book titled "What Happened" in reference to why the win over Cleveland was not as certain as expected.


Dumb post jaybird. You are better than that.

That's not what the discussion has been about.

yeah, let's wait until we lose to inferior teams instead of eeking by them to say "What Happened?!"

Many on this board watch their favorite teams whether football or other sports with deeper and bigger things in mind than the final score.

It's not about the browns game, it's much bigger than that.

Actually it's about highlighting yet again that although the Steelers talk big, one game's worth of evidence shows nothing has changed. They still do the stupid things that let inferior teams hang with them with a chance to actually upset them.

Think on the ramifications that the Browns, with a ROOKIE QUARTERBACK, ran a more wide-open, modern offense than the Steelers, with a 14-year veteran future Hall-of-Famer at the helm. We cannot...CANNOT...win a Super Bowl that way.

The ONLY wild card is Ben's attitude. Looks like he's going to put up with much less shit this season, and WILL retire if things don't change.

Of course, here's hoping his attitude leads to better performances from HIM as well.

It's true that spreading the ball around-- Ben is a point guard, after all-- is a sign that things are clicking. On the other hand, those other guys rarely got separation early in routes and dropped dimes laid out to them when they did. It's why a good offensive plan and play design is essential, even with loads of talent.

As Clan pointed out, there were times the other guys were open and Ben didn't go to them.

So it's a mixture of both.

I understand they sometimes got open but you have to deliver when called upon or you're not always going to get the ball just because you're open.

The INT play was an extreme example, but understand that Ben had a wide open TD on the play before, facing the same defense, and called the same play with a better WR-- logical that he thought he'd have a good shot at that post.

Luca's a "Unicorns and Rainbows" guy. The Steelers can do no wrong and shouldn't be criticized at all.
