    Clark has to get my vote also. He seems to be like a fine wine ... he gets better with time. I just wish he would look for the ball every now and again.

    I thought things got very chippy after Phil Taylor blindsided Beachum and knocked him out of the game. Pouncey especially got into it with the defense a couple of times. It was the first time in many weeks that I saw actual emotion by the Steelers offense. I was actually worried they were going to penalize the Steelers at a critical point. Anyway, I expect Taylor should be receiving a letter from Goodell this week.

    Drew Butler. It was nice to not have the Sepulveda drama and not have Kapinos sucking up the joint.

    I hope this is sarcasm.

    butler was pathetic this year, particularly the second half of the season.

    1) Has to be Clark.

    I have no problem with Miller getting voted Team MVP, but Ryan Clark's contribution/commitment was amazing if you paid attention. The guy played hurt ALL THE TIME, yet he never asked out, never took anything for granted, made plays, and (despite the pain) never let up. The guy is every bit what Polamalu has now become. Polamalu can still play, but he isn't the player he was in his prime. Clark is still near the level he was.

    Those who didn't cut it this year.

    Unbelievable!! That's all I can say.
    I guess you missed all the games HE LOST with his bone head pics at the end of the game, or his pic 6s. You can't cherry pick; you must consider his ENTIRE body of work this season, not just the good stuff. Had been not played so unfocused and thrown game-losing pics, just one less, and we make the play offs. He went back to being "Back Yard Ben" playing sloppy, without focus and just being a bone head. That doesn't cut it. Do you recall Brady, Elway, Montana, et al. ever ruining seasons with sloppy mental focus like that? I don't.

    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.

No one can throw in you in part of the blame for a horrid season. You did your part, as did Clark, Miller and a few others. To have so many players under-achieve, you got to blame the head coach.

    I don't know how much longer Clark can play at this level, but if we had a few more of players with that commitment and drive, we'd still be playing this post season. Clark is a true STEELER.
