    Still better than the Haley offense.

    And if you want to say "they don't win without Harrison's pick-six", then does Drew Brees with without Tracy Porter's pick-six? Does Flacco win without Jacoby Jones 108-yard kickoff return? Does Peyton Manning win his only Lombardi without a pick-six as the Colts final score in that game?

    7 steps into to playoffs... and BA won coach of the year.

    Ben is a big boy.. not sure why fans keep crying about him taking hits... they happen regardless so might as well go down field.

    The D should play big since we gave them all the money...

    No one can every say the D doesn't carry this team but it's all about complimenting the D and BA's offense and Ben's arm and feet complimented our D better than this O.

    that's the problem with some fans... they want us to win because of our O. I think all 3 phases are needed and its no surprise that a D that is paid top dollar, along with a HC is was a defensive coach is getting the glory most games.

    The first pick went through Mendy's hands against the Jets, but YOU are going to be taken to Context School. Pull up your desk and say "Hi" to Slap and Lemming, they are sitting right next to you.

    Ben Roethlisberger scores a TD to give the Steelers a 17-0 lead in the Jets AFC title game.

    Then, Willie Gay scoops up a fumble. It's 24-0, start playing Renegade, wave those Terrible Towels, right?

    WRONG!

    Why? Because after Gay's fumble return, the Steelers defense gave up a field goal.

    Then, to start the 2nd half, the defense gave up a touchdown to Santonio Holmes.

    So that's 10 straight points for the Jets, and the 17 point lead that Ben's offense gave the defense was cut to 14 points.

    And Ben wasn't on the field for a half an hour.

    Class dismissed.

    And considering the Steelers spend most of their money on defense (one reason why they've been in cap hell), why should anyone expect the offense to be better? The Steelers are getting what they paid for.

    In this current era where offenses have the advantage, that has to change.

    No, the problem is some fans only care about where this team ranks on D without looking at context.

    Lemming here praises the 2011 defense. But ignores the garbage QBs that team faced for most of the year.

    That season, for any realistic fan should be remembered for 2 things: Joe Flacco going 90 yards win the division, and Tim Circus Act smoking that defense.

    The defense has injuries? They get absolved of blame.

    Arians offense has injuries? Doesn't matter.

    And you can't read this and tell me I'm wrong.

    I'm geographically overwhelmed, feeling blitzkrieged, so I can't remember if I at the core of things agree with UNCrash or not. But I do think I agree with the above statement. The #1 defense and 50c would have bought us a quarter Venti from Starb*cks that year.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Considering the Steelers love them some TOP, I don't think that was Ben's decision.
    No. I'm referring to the unexplainable poorly executed 2 minute drill of last week.

    I don't know what was worse....

    Ben's execution near the end zone which in which he continuously used up to much time and was throwing short of the endzone
    ..or..
    Tomlin's timeout with 2:02 on the clock.

    That was the best drive of the game. And don't tell me it was Ben's choice not to throw in the endzone, everyone knows that isn't true. Everyone knows ever since Haley came here this offense has started to play scared.
