    This is how I feel about Ben as well.

    Used his athleticism to extend plays and make huge gains.

    I believe Ward said something about how it was great to have a QB who would keep his eyes...

    And part of the reason he had lots of fumbles is that he played lots of games.

    I think part of that situation is coaching. Because they replaced a likely Hall of Fame coach with an AHL guy...even though it sounds like the HoF guy was a bit of a dick. And every playoff loss has...

    I agree that QB and defense wins. And I think that having that elite defense made it easier to Ben to take chances and recover from mistakes. You need to be good on both sides of the ball to win most...

    I certainly argued with people that didn't want to sign TJ. I think that was silly because you do what you can to keep elite players in their primes. I will probably not be excited about signing TJ...

    As I said, Ben is Ben. And it was amazing at times. Won us SBs. Earned him a 1st ballot HoF induction.

    But the same thing that made him great also cost us dearly at times. And the frequency of it...

    So you would be arguing that Tomlin would be a better coach if we missed the playoffs in the last 2 years?

    Somehow, I doubt it.

    This is what I think too.

    Let Mitch and Kenny battle for the job.

    Keep Mason around in case someone gets hurt. Maybe trade him late in the preseason if everyone looks healthy and the late pick...

    I may be getting this wrong, but I thought I heard that Pickett's fumbles per game are actually better than several of the other QBs in the draft.

    Thanks Buzz.

    That's interesting.

    I'd only really heard of "tenders" in relation to RFA tenders, which I think are contracts with set values for guys without enough time in the league to be...

    He burned bridged directly with the owner IIRC.

    I can't see this happening.

    In the Depot article about this I think the last sentence is something like "AB has a concert date upcoming in...

    I asked this question of Joel upthread...I think he still hasn't answered.



    Then I also noted that BC didn't have a winning record in the playoffs until after the SB win...something like 14...

    Peyton is basically the same as Tomlin.

    Except he bailed on his team when he lost his HoF QB.

    And imagine what people on here would be saying about MT if he got suspended for a season by the...

    There are certainly coaches I'd take instead of Tomlin. Or at least ones I wouldn't feel badly about swapping with. I think that list has grown longer in the past 5 years or so. But 5 years ago,...

    I agree that the play broke down because the OL failed. But that by itself didn't lead to the DTD.

    This is what I mean by "live by the sword and die by the sword".

    I don't think we can say "I...

    So you are arguing that (1) the worst coaching decision of the week changed the win% of the game by 2% AND (2) coaching is more important than play on the field.

    I don't see how you can think that...

    Taking chances like that is what made him great. Because it worked out so many times. We would live and die by the sword with Ben.

    Yep...I hadn't gotten that far into the thread before responding.

    But that's another great example. I strongly agree with you that Good-to-Great QB + Good-to-Great D wins (at least one of the two...

    Why is it with / without Tomlin and not with / without Troy?

    Edited to add: We had the combination of Ben and Troy from 2004 - 2014.

    In that time, we were 9 - 6.

    After that time we have been...

    See...why is never blaming Ben ever any different from never blaming Ben?

    Especially when everyone in the universe believes that QBs are more important than HCs for team success?

    I'd love it if our coaches (and players) only had one bad call (and play) a game.

    Well, we were super good at converting 4th and short. Especially when we elected to pass. :(
