Chris Collinsworth said that he tried for 10 years to do a helmet catch in practice & AB with game tension made it look like child's play last night. I just have 1 game jersey - the one that I bought in AB's rookie season - 84.

Yeah, but he didn't have Ben throwing the ball :D

AB's hands are about as good as I've ever seen - like magnets covered in glue. Catches probably 95% of whatever hits his hands regardless of how tough a catch.

I'd say AB has more upside than most, maybe all, with an elite QB, the ones who can really utilize those great hands in tight windows. But he also has more downside with a lesser QB that can't hit those tight windows on time.

:lol:

It's true though. AB would be hugely productive with guys like Stafford, Dalton, Tannehill... he's a transcendent talent and makes any QB he plays with better. Landry Jones is arguably not even NFL quality. I mean, if he's cut tomorrow does he get signed to another team's 53? I don't think so.

I have a feeling the Pats would pick him up within an hour

thinking Brown hits 1700 this year, leads the NFL (unsurprisingly)

new single season mark for him is probably out of reach, he'd need about 135 per game in the last 6

Antonio Brown is simply putting up the most productive 5 year run in NFL History for a wide receiver.

He's such and extremely polished and talented WR. No doubt if he stays healthy he'll be at least a top 10 WR of all time.

Weird.


Come on now. You've said Ben looks done often this season. Doesn't mean you don't like Ben.

I think Tomlin gets too little credit on the board is all.

And there are some who will do anything other than blame Ben for anything.

Tomlin's got his worts for sure, but reading a lot of the cooments about him on here, you'd be forgiven for thinking people were referring to Marvin Lewis or something.


I sure did, because he HAS looked done.

I blame Roethlisberger plenty when he deserves it.

I detest Tomlin because I know what's coming.

HUGE cushions vs. New England's receivers and run, run, pass when we're down 15.

That's why my avatar is a tribute to Mikey T.

Sure, pull out the hate for the HC of our 8-2 football team. Good timing.
