    You Won't Believe it but...

    In games that Ben played in:

    Avg number of deep passes thrown:

    2012 = 6.7

    2011 = 6.9

    So Haley called as many deeps balls as Arians and the myth of dink and dunk is just that.

    Are these designed plays or Ben being Ben? Maybe its a myth but it sure looked like half of our deep passes werent by design. I also think we didn't have enough in the 15 to 20 yard range where our WR's could use their speed.

    What was his ypa this year? Pretty sure that was down.

    These are targets but as is noted, there is no way to know if it was designed or not.

    BUT, the number of deep targets this season were remarkably consistent among the games, so that tells me they were probably designed.

    Was this YPC or passes that were actually in the air >15 yards? Brown took a few dinks and a couple of dunks to the + 15 yard zone, and that is YPC material.

    Either way Ben looked good before the injury.

    I think what the difference is, last few years we saw many deep completions for TDs and such. This year there were a lot of missed opportunities so the long ball just did not stand out. It was a while ago, but watching the game Lefty started it seemed he was making more 15 plus yard throws. It just felt or looked that way while watching it. Was it my eyes or were the swarm of bees on the field distorting my vision.

    He was having the best season of his career. Not sure why people want to ignore that.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Even though he was statistically a beast I think people were frustrated at how easy it was to beat us due to these 15 play drives that usually ended with a FG.
