While the kid somehow escaped major injury, the fact is that he endured much more punishment than he should have. I think Luck will be better under his college coach Pep Hamilton now.

    As for making the Cardinals more competitive, it would be hard to be less competitive now that they have moved on from the Kolb/Skelton/Lindley/Hoyer pu-pu platter at QB. Although they are one good hit away from starting Drew Stanton at QB, and if there is one thing for sure about an Arians offense, Carson Palmer will be hit and hit often.
    I doubt Palmer will be hit often...

    QB's like Ben and Luck are built for contact, scrambling, etc and are ok with a vertical game.

    Ben Roethlisberger's sack percentage was 20% lower in 2012 than it was in 2011, despite the offensive line being essentially the same. He was injured on his 18th sack of the season. It was just bad luck.

    Which makes sense to me.

    Bromance of Todd Haley and Ben Roethlisberger confirmed

    By Neal Coolong on Jun 12 2013



    Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Todd Haley are working together in a more mutually agreeable manner, and their combined strength could lead to big things for the Steelers offense.

    The worry last season was the lack of ability to apply cutesy puns on the relationship of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

    There was no Bromance. They weren't BFFs, according to many reports. There were no Parcells and Taylor comparisons to how they acted toward each other. We didn't even get a Hetero Lifemates joke. It was more Martin and Steinbrenner.

    As assumed, though, their positive relationship is being pushed much higher on the overall agenda this offseason. According to Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette:

    "After Haley was hired last year, the story became how long it took for the new coordinator and the old quarterback to finally speak to one another. This year, they can't stop."

    It's an old-fashioned story of Bromance. Todd and Ben, perhaps more masculine circles would refer to their collective togetherness as "Bod."

    The word "icy" was used to describe their previous relationship, but now, and perhaps in wake of the likely elimination of Disco Dan from the Pittsburgh sports vernacular, Bod comes at a good time.

    The Steelers' offense - much like the Penguins - stagnated over the final four games of their season. A big part of that was Roethlisberger's injury and inactivity, but Haley was also down right tackle MIke Adams and left guard Willie Colon - the team averaged over 4.7 yards a carry when the pair was starting.

    With injuries chipping away at the team's offensive potential, Haley rested the bulk of the offense on the balky right arm of his future BFF, Roethlisberger.

    The results were not what the couple hoped for in the early stages of their relationship. A rough end to the 2012 season leads to the need for both of them to come together. They're both competitive, by all accounts, and winning is the most important thing.

    Competition can breed positive overall results. Let's hope their blustering Bromance can as well.

    I've always been a huge Spaeth supporter from his first stint with us. He just isn't Heath Miller or a young up and coming Tyler Eifert.
    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!

    Now you went and done it. You mentioned "him". I thought the man crush on Eifert was officially dead.

    What were Tyler Eifert's NFL stats last year?

    Tyler Eifert caught 4 TD passes in 13 games at Notre Dame this past season and caught a total of 4 passes against Michigan, Michigan St and Miami, Fla.

    I don't get the hype...
