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.

    • Your opinion is wrong though.   Colts had 7th best Run Defense in the league last year.   https://www.footballdb.com/stats/teamstat.html?group=D&cat=T&sort=rushypg
    • The 2021 draft is going to be such a mess with college conferences cancelling seasons. Some are moving seasons to spring then going to expect them to play again in the fall. How many will opt out of the spring session and only play fall. What about guys who red one more year removed from HS to be eligible fir the draft. Will it force guys like Trevor Lawrence to stay in school a extra year. I am not sure how a draft will even be able to ge done in 2021. A lot of players are going to be losing a lot of money if they opt out and enter the draft. 
    • LOL. Did you watch any of the games last season?   Also, Okereke is 6-1, 235 lbs, basically the same size as Patrick Willis and Luke Keuchly, except with longer arms and also runs a 4.58 40. I’d take the increased arm length and athleticism over 0.0001 centimeters in height any day. 
    • I think S depth may trump OL depth right now.  Hooker's battled injuries most of his career and the fact he wasn't extended and given some of Ballard's pressers (basically saying Hooker's play dropped off throughout the year in 2019 and he wasn't playing to his level of expectations) and the fact we drafted Blackmon in Rd 3 lead me to believe the FO/Coaching Staff is getting ready to move on from him.     Willis played well as a rookie, but I still see him as a guy who is just about at his ceiling given his limited athleticism.  Rutledge looks like a playmaker but he went undrafted for a reason and he's a rookie coming from a small school, so it'd be hard to expect him to adjust to the NFL right away, especially given this weird off season.  I like Odum more as a STer than a full-time starting safety should we have an injury to Hooker or Willis. Then Tell, while I don't blame him, opting out, IMO, was a big blow to our entire secondary as he was developing nicely at CB but has the versatility to play S if needed (I don't know any of our current corners have that ability, maybe Rhodes).     OL depth is still concerning, but it sounds like Pinter is really impressing coaches as a rookie and I think Clark is versatile enough to be a solid stop gap at G or T if needed.  Hopefully Patterson is back to full health as a backup C (sounds like Big Q or Pinter would be next in line at C if needed).  I guess, I think we're so strong with our starting OL (with Glowinski being the weak link, but not really that weak of a link) that I feel like a single replacement there would not be as devastating to one of our starting S going down right now.  Regardless, it'd be nice to have a few more guys competing across the OL.
    • It has to be odd signing FAs now, since teams aren't allowed to work them out.  I guess one would hope that these guys have been keeping themselves in shape throughout the offseason, but it'd still be nice to be able to work them out before signing them.   Safety now is, IMO, the team's biggest concern.  I think we're fine w/ Hooker and Willis as starters, though Hooker's had injury issues throughout his time in the NFL (and prior).  I like Odum, but like him more as a STer than a guy we have to rely on being a starter for an extended time if one of our top 2 go down.  Then Blackmon is still on the injured list, and I don't expect him to be full strength to the middle of the season (if not later).  The UDFA, Rutledge, was a playmaker but from a small school and went undrafted for a reason, so I'm not too sure that we should expect anything out of him in terms of being reliable if he had to play a lot of minutes.   Geathers is still a FA and I know Ballard really seemed to like him.  I'm wondering if him not being signed or brought up in discussion is a health issue (i.e., can't pass a physical), a major health concern (given his injury history), demanding too much $, or if the team has simply moved on from him.    Personally, I like the fact we're looking at Tavon Wilson, he's a former 2nd round draft pick who had his best NFL year last season, starting 13 games in Detroit and recording 98 tackles, 2 fumble recovers and 5 passes defended.
