Ben's best games are when he uses everybody...when eight different guys catch passes.

I'm going to harp on this until I'm blue in the face. Maybe he oughtn't have had only two series of work and every third day off in preseason.

We can't wait four weeks for him to build trust in JuJu and Eli while he forces every other pass to Antonio and Martavis.

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.

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.

That's making an excuse for Ben...one you would NEVER make for Todd haley.

Come on, man. It was a bad decision.

If we're going to win the Super Bowl, EVERYONE on offense has to step up.

I already said it was a bad decision-- I'm saying above that I understand why he was confident before the play that it would work... but when it's not there, he gets paid to make a better choice.

Ben was not throwing 'dimes' on every pass. More than a handful of his passes were more like scattered pennies than dimes. I've said it numerous times, if you go back and watch, take out other variables (excuses - warranted or not), you'll see that Ben is not "that" accurate on some of those simple passes. This first week of FB I've watched many average QBs hit receivers running simple short crossers or dump offs to RB as a screen or flat pass dead in stride. I mean dead in stride, where they can catch the ball without any extra loss in motion, zero. Ben simply doesn't do that much of the time (and, yes, I've watch the play enough times to see no other variables are interfering with Ben/receiver to accomplish this). A game played at this speed relies on those "dimes" being thrown for the play to be most successful. Does Ben throw the best downfield ropes in the NFL? Most likely, he's easily a top 5 QB at if, for sure. Those passes are much harder to throw, that's why so many QBs aren't very good at it. If Ben can be that accurate, at that distance, he certainly has the ability to throw 'dimes' on the short passes I'm talking about, but somehow he doesn't, at least not as well as the average QBs I've watch.

Simple example: MB ran a short crosser from left to right about 5-10 past the LOS and Ben had a perfect window (Ben sees him all the way across) to hit a wide open MB in stride for a very simple completion (again, something I saw a dozen average QBs do this weekend) and instead Ben threw it high and away from him. The 6"4' MB had to jump as high and far as he could just to get a finger on the ball, redirecting it a little, almost ending in an interception. Ben's inaccuracy was the only negative variable with that play, nothing else.

I did go back, as you suggested. I pointed out the very small number of missed throws, including the one you mentioned, which was probably the least accurate of the whole day. Aside from another short dump off to Bell (Ben made that choice too late and rushed the throw because the throwing lane was closing and a pass rusher was reaching for the football), and a flat pass to Bell on a circle route that was debatable as to whether Bell drifted upfield too early or Ben put it behind him, he was remarkably accurate on virtually every other throw. The throws to AB and the sidelines, in particular were tremendous. Rather than leading them to the sidelines for short gains and no YAC, they were lead away from defenders and into open space. The comeback to Bryant was money into a tight window, and the first TD to James was throwing a bb into the glove box of a car traveling at 20 mph from 20 yards away.

Your narrative doesn't hold water in this game.

Right.

You know what that tendency allows to happen?

It allows you as a QB to get baited.

Sure. I'm assuming the book on Ben is to take away all the deep balls and force the ball to be dumped off, knowing that he'll get frustrated and force the ball eventually if the offense is stymied. And, I also assume that the OC book on working with Ben is get him in the groove early and find some stuff that works, so that the offense isn't stymied and he isn't pushed into forcing the issue.

Again, he's been doing this for more than 13 years.

He was talking about the shorter throws, mostly.

I haven't watched the game film so I don't know who's telling the truth. The short throws I remember that missed were Ben being off.

I'm about holding everyone accountable who should be held accountable.

Mike Tomlin- for treating the first couple of games as preseason instead of treating PRESEASON as preseason.

Todd Haley- for calling games like an unimaginative scared pussy and not maximizing his personnel's talents.

Ben- for taking preseason off and for missing on some key throws, and making a braindead decision when we could have sealed the game.

Bell- for holding out of training camp

Martavis- for not staying off the dope

I'm sure there can be some for JuJu, Eli, Vance, and Jesse as well.

Ben had about 28 throws less than 10 yards downfield on Sunday. He had 7 incompletions, of which at least 3 were drops (Bryant, Eli, McDonald) and one was a horrible route by Bell where Ben's throw was good.

That leaves 3/28 throws that were not accurate short throws. Here's the chart (doesn't count at least three throws negated by penalties- two screens and the throw to AB negated by Bell chop block):
https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/charts/list/all/pittsburgh-steelers/season/week/ben-roethlisberger/ROE750381/2017/1/pass

Again, how many inaccurate throws do you think Tom Brady had on Thursday night? 3/28 doesn't seem all that unreasonable to me. Maybe I'm wrong about this.

Ben had about 28 throws less than 10 yards downfield on Sunday. He had 7 incompletions, of which at least 3 were drops (Bryant, Eli, McDonald) and one was a horrible route by Bell where Ben's throw was good.

That leaves 3/28 throws that were not accurate short throws. Here's the chart (doesn't count at least three throws negated by penalties- two screens and the throw to AB negated by Bell chop block):

Again, how many inaccurate throws do you think Tom Brady had on Thursday night? 3/28 doesn't seem all that unreasonable to me. Maybe I'm wrong about this.


On what play did Rogers drop a ball don't remember that at all? Oh never mind got it.
