    The few who do deserve kudos

    #1. Timmons. He had a breakout season. He was everything they hoped when they drafted him. He didn't let himself get all fat and out of shape, ala Woodley. He played well all season.

    #2. Lewis. Finally a young DB developed.

    #3. Allen, see above.

    #4. Heath.

    #5. Clark. Biggest reason the D held it together with all the injuries as it did.

    Those who didn't cut it this year.

    Ben, Wallace, most of O line, Polamalu, Tomlin, Haley.

    Also, Max Starks. Unsung hero, IMHO.

    Didn't we bring him back from the waiver wire?

    Polamalu is just getting healthy. I still think Ben is injured and prior to the injury was having a great year. I have no problem with Tomlin considering all the injuries.

    Wow...a QB who threw for over 3200 yards (while having missed 3 games to injury), 26 TD's thrown to only 8 INT's, and a passer rating at 97.0 all the while having to adapt to a new system and he is considered as one who didn't cut it this year?

    Unbelievable!! That's all I can say.

    I do think it's fair to pin the W/L record on Ben just because he's the QB. We lost 5 games by 3 points. If he gets us 3+ points in one of those games, we're playing next week. Not all his fault, but it probably means he had to make 1 more play. Or 1 less mistake.

    His stats were fine. Unfortunately his mistakes often came at the worst possible times. And he seemed to lose a bit of that clutch gene of his. Hopefully an offseason with Haley will help those 2 get on the same page and get this ironed out going forward.

    I'm not saying there isn't a lot of blame to go around. But everyone of those losses, Ben also took the blame himself.
