I would be disgusted with that too. Let me know when you find THAT GUY Crash. :)
It's disgusts me when Kordell Stewart fans (especially those of Afro-American race), who have resented Ben from day one, continue to spread such nonsense about Ben, all because their hero failed, where Ben succeeded.
Crash I did indeed root for Kordell, never hated on him true. But I have always admitted his limitations. Just never had the ire you had.
Crash I REJOICED when we drafted Ben thought for sure he would be gone when we drafted. I would have drafted him number one over Eli AND Rivers. I used to live in Hawaii and SAW BEN TEAR HAWAII UP in college. Had we NOT drafted Ben when he fell to us I would have been CRUSHED. I have NEVER ONCE even IMPLIED Ben was inferior to Kordell. Go ahead do a search Crash. THAT would be ridiculous. I believe Ben is the best Steeler QB EVER.....better than Terry.
Mostly, it was more like "balance early" run late in most games. And YOU HATED IT. You called it going to the "turtle" which was a strategy that WAS NEAR UNDEFEATED with Ben at QB under Cower who you despised. Dont act like you LOVED the strategy. "I" defended it to you.
The "formula" from 2004-2006 NEVER CHANGED. Pass early, then run late. They did it in 2004, they did it in 2005, and they tried to do it in 2006.
And so you DONT disagree with where the blame lies? Please share your opinion?
The ONLY thing that changed in 2006, was the EXECUTION, not the game plan.
You have a point there, to a degree. Besting your career high by nearly 200 attempts.....that is being behind and a bit of philosophy change as well.
You people never get it through your heads, that when teams who try to pass get behind early in games? They have to keep trying to pass to get back into the game simply because of time.
Well Crash he DOES COME BACK now doesn't he?
Kordell's done. History. Finished. He's not coming back.
When YOU bring him up. Amazingly when you are "invited to depart" this board NOBODY ELSE even thinks about him FOR MONTHS. :)
Seriously, that expression offends me Crash. Especially if you imply those are MY thoughts.
No matter how many times you lie about the 6-5 cracker from Ohio with two Super Bowl rings.
How specifically have I "lied" about Ben in this tread?
See this is where we differ. I love that we have Ben. I think he is the greatest Steeler QB ever. I just don't worship at his alter like you and can admit HE HAD A BAD SEASON IN 2006. He was STUPID for not wearing a helmet on his bike, SOMETHING THAT YOU DEFEND TO THE DEATH just because you hate that Cowher told him to wear a helmet. How the heck is that a lie? You see Crash, I dont want to see my favorite QB get hurt. Is that not logical?
Crash you have "good guys" and "bad guys".
Cowher, Hines, Art jr, Haley, etc are "villains" on your own team. Anything of controversy YOU side against them.
Ben, Arians, etc are "heroes" divine beings above all reproach, infallible.
As a result, anyone who simply acknowledges a flaw in a "Hero" is somehow a "hater".
