Can you believe this guy? It's one thing to dislike a certain team but to be flat out wrong in your analasys about them is ridiculous!!

From this morning he said until Ben wins games by himself he cant be compared to Manning or Brady.

I guess he forgot about that big game two years ago versus the Cardinals? Or the game winning drive last week versus the Ravens? The three games on the road versus the Bengals, Colts, and Broncos on route to the Supper Bowl in 2005? Or all his fourth quarter comebacks?

Then in regards to why the Steelers got rid of Santonio Holmes, Faulk said the Steelers dont want to pay their primetime players.

Yet the Steelers have always locked up their primetime players like Ben, Hines, Smith, Keisel, Troy, Harrison, Ike (previous contract), Farrior, The Bus, etc.

What a straight hater!! Get your information correct loser!

Yep. Faulk said that not calling Holmes for the Lebron celebration "changed the whole complexion of the game", which is laughable.

Prime then says "Kurt can't hear you man, he's on the bus"

I was thnking the same thing.... competely disreguard his comments about Ben, he has been hating on every aspect of the Steelers. Everything from trading Holmes to the benefits of getting Troy and Heath back (vs them being out last jets game).

Did Harrison bang his wife or something?

Even Irving and Sapp were starting to rebut at times.

But everyone is entitled to their opinions... just as everyone is also entitled to be wrong.

I remember when Faulk was playing, everyone was saying how he had such an incredible grasp of the game, he knew where every player, offense and defense, was going to be on every play, smarter than the QBs, etc. etc. etc.

Did he fall and hit his head since then?

The reason Faulk doesn't like the Steelers is because his buddy and ex-teammate Warner lost Super Bowl 43 to the Steelers.

The sad thing is if is does have anything to do with the Steelers beating AZ a couple years ago, why is Kurt Warner complimentary of the Steelers and not Faulk?? It's gotta be more than that, I would think. Or maybe Faulk is just that much of a douche.

I was watching when the question was asked: Which defense would you pick today? The Steelers or the Jets? Faulk went on to say how our defense gave up more points to the Jets, he was picking the Jets. When someone else pointed out that special teams gave up 7 points, Faluk replied: "Well you have defensive players on special teams, so I say the defense gave up those points." The looks from the other guys on the set were like :wft

And this goes for all spheres of life. When you are coming from a prejudged (ie. he does not like the steelers) perspective then you are not thinking clearly so most of these talking heads are, let's just say, not big fans of the Steelers. What they say makes no sense. Big Ben is not a great quarterback? Haha, what a joke. Is he a robot who will malfunction if you through a wrench in his gear like Brady and Manning no. If you pressure him will he go into a wussy, hissy fit, sissy cocoon, like brady and manning no. Ben wins in a different way. How can you discount a guy for whom the superbowl is the norm, (3 out of 6 years). Come on MAAAANNNNNN.

Marshall doesn't give Ben the credit he deserves but he's absolutely right when he says this team lives and dies with the defense, not the offense.

The Patriots live and die with their offense.
The Saints live and die with their offense.
The Colts live and die with their offense.
The Jets live and die (by and large) with their defense.

Every team has one unit that seems to be their bread and butter; it's not an unusual occurrence, even with good teams.

The Steeler's as a team rely on their defense to be sure, but, also, as a team they seem to pick each other up when one phase of the team is struggling.

Faulk is an abomination as a football analyst. It's not just talking about the Steelers does he sound stupid. He makes stupid statements about many teams.

When he was playing I thought he seemed to be intelligent. I guess he is one of those guys who shouldn't open his mouth to show his ignorance.

That stat was listed on either the pre-game or the game broadcast last night.

The D has been good with all the Steeler SB teams. But the Offense was also good at times and still rarely receives credit.

I know he is a hater, I called my wife over when I saw he was on and said "look at that guy....watch he will have nothing good to say about the Steelers".
Sure enough like the sun rising it came to pass. But I laughed the whole time.

Today HE LOOKS LIKE AN IDIOT even to his colleagues.

Marshall Faulk: Not a Huge Believer in the Steelers

Posted on January 28, 2011 by ryan


It’s too bad NFL.com just doesn’t have an entire section devoted to “Stupid Things Marshall Faulk Says” because it would make my job a lot easier. Instead, I spent 20 minutes perusing their video archives to unearth some recent nuggets of wisdom.

We talked about it on the podcast yesterday, but the trap that we all fall into time and again is that we expect the former players who show up on our televisions and call themselves analysts to, you know, actually know what they’re talking about. That, clearly, is asking too much.

The obvious exceptions: Ron Jaworski, Merril Hoge and Mike Mayock. I also like Deion Sanders because, despite the occasional misguided rant, he’s a smart dude who understands the cornerback position. Some folks are also high on Trent Dilfer. And there are others, too, I’m sure.

But Marshall, the former Colts and Rams running back who deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame, speaks with the certainty of high school math teacher working through a proof, but his analysis usually lands squarely between absurd and patently wrong. Time and again. (If nothing else, he gets points for consistency.)

And, look, we’ve all been wrong. That’s not my point. My issue with Faulk is that he’s allegedly an expert, but it’s obvious that he doesn’t prepare for his job. It’s one thing to say that the Steelers will lose because their offensive line is in shambles and they have inexperienced wideouts. It’s something else entirely to suggest that Dick LeBeau won’t be able to employ his “fancy defenses” because the Jets will run all over the Steelers.

(And if the NFL Network argues that Faulk does prepare then, well, that’s even worse. It would be less embarrassing if they just said, “Yeah, he just rolls out of bed, shows up, inhales a few bear claws, and just starts making **** up.”)

It wasn’t unreasonable to think that the Jets had a chance against the Steelers in the AFC Championship game. New York did beat Pittsburgh in Week 15. It’s just that Marshall has no use for logic when formulating his argument.

Before we get to the damning evidence, a word about why I even care. No idea. Really, I can’t explain it. I’m a grown man with plenty of other things to occupy my time. And it’s not like I haven’t been writing on the internet long enough to know that this type of myopic analysis is a staple of sports network programming. Maybe it’s because the Steelers are in the Super Bowl and my senses are heightened. Or perhaps it is because I’m getting older — and more crotchety (is that possible?). Whatever it is, I just don’t have the patience for stupidity like I once did. I can’t help myself. And who knows, maybe this’ll inspire Marshall to not suck at his job.

Onto the unintentional comedy…

Here’s Marshall on January 20, explaining why he likes the Jets over the Steelers:

“Listen, I’ve been riding with the Jets all year and I’m not gonna stop now. When I look at the way Ben plays … the fact that he’s a guy who holds onto the football, and that they are not committed to the run, you become a one-dimensional team against the Jets. You can’t beat that defense one dimensional.

“[Rex Ryan] came up with a game plan to beat the great Peyton Manning. He came up with a game plan to beat the great Tom Brady. Well, look who’s next … look who’s next. I’m a ride with the Jets.”

It took me 15 seconds to find the stats from the Week 15 get-together to refute Marshall’s allegation that the Steelers “are not committed to the run.” Net rushing yards against the Jets in that regular-season matchup? 146. And the Steelers averaged 5.8 yards per rush, including Rashard Mendenhall’s 99 yards on 17 carries. Weird.

There’s more, of course. Here’s Faulk from January 16:

“I don’t like this matchup for Pittsburgh because when I look at Pittsburgh defensively, going up against the Jets, D!ck LeBeau don’t get to use his fancy defenses because the Jets are gonna pound the football on you and make you play the run. And now your corners have to play one on one against two receivers that could be dangerous if you play them man. And on offense, when the Steelers have the ball, Ben — this defense of the Jets, they want the quarterback to hold the football. And you know what Ben does: he’s the pat, pat, pat, pump, pump, pump kinda guy. And if you stand back there, the sacks will happen, just like they did the first time.”

God almighty. In the first game, the Jets ran for 106 yards, 15 coming from Mark Sanchez. Shonn Greene had 40 yards on 12 carries (3.3 YPC), and LaDainian Tomlinson had 49 yards on 11 carries (4.5 YPC). Not exactly 2009 Chris Johnson-type efforts there. Might have had something to do with the Steelers’ No. 1 defense.

As for the Jets two dangerous receivers: Braylon Edwards had 8 catches for 100 yards, Santonio Holmes had six for 40 yards. And Sanchez ended the day 19 of 29 for 170 yards and no touchdown passes.

That’s not to say that Edwards, Holmes and Sanchez couldn’t get hot and put up points, but they didn’t do in the first matchup — without Troy Polamalu. What made Marshall think that would suddenly change?

For what it’s worth, some noteworthy stats from the AFC Championship game:

– Sanchez: 20 of 33 for 233 yards, 2 TDs
– Edwards: 3 catches, 50 yards, 0 TDs
– Holmes: 2 catches, 61 yards, 1 TD
– Cotchery: 5 catches, 33 yards, 1 TD
– Greene: 9 rushes, 52 yards, 0 TDs
– Tomlinson: 9 rushes, 16 yards, 0 TDs

Solid work, sir.

Philip Rivers doesn't run much but he's excellent at moving within the pocket and getting rid of the ball. To say his game goes to crap is completely false. He gets sacked, on average, about half as much as Ben, has thrown over 4000 yards the last three years and has had over 30 td's thrown two of the last years. Ben has 1 4000 yard season and 1 30+ season in his career.

Both are excellent QB's. San Diego would be a 4 win team without Rivers. On average, he has to carry his team much more.

Yup. Right at about 27 PPG in the playoffs and never scored under 20. In the two losses we scored 27 and 29 respectively. Manning is sitting right around 20 PPG in the playoffs. Not sure where Brady sits, but I think it's somewhere in the 23 range.
