Big Ben throws somebody else under the bus.

Recommended Posts

Big Ben is a low character loser.  Did you see him throw his coach under the bus again with them “never calling a QB sneak”???  You’re a HoF QB you lame. As if you don’t have the ability to tell the coach you’re gonna sneak on 4th & a foot...  This guy is the perfect embodiment of why the Steelers underperform...  Because their leader can’t ever hold himself accountable. Seeing this guy’s character on display makes it really easy to believe the dirty things in his past are true.  Big Ben is complete loser.  100%.

Im glad they lost, i was thinking about rooting for them because i thought they were the only team that stands in between the Pats and another ring, but after seeing Jacksonville's performance today I am jumping on that bandwagon all the way. Hopefully Fournette is 100% because they will need him, Bortles to play the best game of his life and their D to get a couple INT and Sacks to beat Brady and the refs in Gillette. We all know if Jax gets a lead all of sudden the penalty flags will start flying and the clock will do funny things, the only way around it is to just kick the crap out of them,

As long as that Jags win is followed by a 50 point blowout loss in the Super Bowl followed by a Super Bowl loser hangover next year, I’ll be all for it.  :rock:

Steelers coaches are pretty overrated though, have been for a while now. Almost glad I don't have to sit through another Steelers loss to the Patriots. Jags will likely lose too but at least they will make it more interesting with some new blood.

I agree. Tomlin must have something on the owner or the GM to remain HC.

 

Pittsburgh fans are pointing fingers now, but they were all looking past the Jaguars.  A bunch of *, who can be counted on to mention past SB wins every conversation.

BigBen seemed emotionless in his post-game presser...almost like someone told him "You are the franchise QB, the veteran team leader, and our highest-paid player, therefore, it is your responsibility to go sit in front of the media and take full responsibilty for the loss."

It certainly didn't feel like a "heartfelt" presser given what had just transpired and Ben's supposed "love for the game"?  You tell me?.....

 

 

This guy needs to retire.

Tomlin made several tactical failures at the end of the game, and topped it off with the onside kick.  He misused his TO’s too.  

 

One thing I’m very happy about.  For the first time in forever, the Jags won’t have a top pick in the draft.

Jesus, Big Ben. That's mainly the reason why I hate the Steelers. Big Ben, and their sense of entitlement. They have too much talent in Brown and Bell not to like them, but Ben ruins everything.

Some of you people are over the top in your criticism of Ben.  He answered a reporter's question, nobody was thrown under the bus.  Also, on the 4th and 1 in question, it looked like he checked out of the original play call.

Just like Peyton said "we had protection problems" which was also an answer to a question. :)

Knock Brady out of the game that's the only way jags win.

Big Ben has done this few times, no matter what, you don’t see guys like Payton, Brady, Brees putting their coaches on blast like Ben did over the years, the guy needs to take responsibility and act like a leader.

Mike Tomlin has won 116 games in 11 seasons.     That's roughly 10.5 wins per season.

 

And it includes 8 of 11 seasons with 10 or more wins.

 

THAT'S what he has on the owner........

Completely agree, I didn't believe Peyton was throwing anyone under the bus then either.

 I hate the Steelers as much as the next guy, but what is wrong with this interview?

Your season comes to a crashing halt... I don't envy any of these guys that have to immediately go before the press without even having a chance to process what just happened.

 

Never been a big fan of Big Ben, but there was nothing wrong with this interview.

The Steelers problem is mainly on defense. They just haven't done a good job replacing that studly defense they had in the 2000s. Those linebackers, the secondary, the d line. They just don't have that dynamic defense anymore....and the one pretty athletic side line to side line line backer Shazier got hurt. They don't intimidate anyone any more....they are basically the 2000 Colts...overwhelming teams with offensive firepower.

    • Not to go diving too far down this particular rabbit hole... but the bolded is a major point of variance for people. What doesn't make sense to one might be completely understandable to another. And some people will latch onto something that they don't immediately understand, and rather than trying to understand it they will assume their lack of understanding means that it fundamentally 'doesn't make sense,' and therefore something else must be up.   So a person's baseline understanding of certain issues, couple with how quickly that person can go from trusting to skeptical has a lot to do with whether they entertain alternative possibilities, and to what extent.
    • That's specific to marijuana. The PED policy was made more strict than it already was. First positive test for anabolic steroids is a six game suspension now; was previously four games. I believe HGH is treated as an anabolic steroid by the PED policy.   And teams cannot suspend players for drug violations, only the league can. A team can suspend a player for conduct detrimental, but if that's related to a drug violation, it will be challenged and the team will (most likely) lose. 
    • From the moment Hasselback patted Luck on the chest...nothing about the Luck saga has been common. The secrecy...the misleading of fans...the incredibly long rehab...the Europe trip...the sudden retirement...all of it. 
    • At the time of the retirement, he had been dealing with that weird ankle/calf issue for at least two months, and it wasn't going away. He could have felt like he would have to use painkillers to make it through the season. Or with the uncertainty of what it was, maybe he was considering surgery, but knew that would come with significant pain during recovery.   A year or two later, the leg issue could be gone entirely. So the immediate conflict related to managing pain is no longer there.   I agree with you though, it would be naive to assume that any NFL player could play without experiencing serious pain. However, in March of 2020, the NFL's testing policy for marijuana changed dramatically, to the extent that it's now basically a viable option for pain management. If a player isn't already in the drug testing program due to previous positive tests, he basically only has to worry about being randomly tested during a small window at the start of training camp. And the penalties for a positive test no longer includes a suspension.   So if that were a player's preferred method of pain management, the new policy makes it a lot easier to get by.
    • Now it won't be an issue.  Per the current CBA players can no longer be suspended for failed drug tests, they can only be fined.     That is by the league.  I don't know if the teams can then suspend a player or not.
