    Just because 1 PLAYER has a route that is short of the endzone doesn't mean Ben has to throw it to that guy. Then again, Ben doesn't strike me as the sharpest tool in the shed.

    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 we don't care that the offense took the entire 2nd half of the game off.

    School's out

    You guys can't have it both ways. You can't demand defense and running with leads and then complain when they don't score.

    Tomlin admitted they played "not to lose" in the second half.

    But that's what you people want. Protect the defense, chew clock.

    Haleys offense was on pace to make Big Ben the MVP of the NFL until he got hurt.

    The only class you'd be in charge of is the short bus class... now time to learn you a few things:

    Do you really expect to shut out a team in today's NFL? You're a ****ing moron if you think the D was just going to shut them out. WOW they scored a FG after the D just got off the field by scoring a TD by themselves? WOW what brilliant insight. The defense shut them out in the first half except for a FG. The offense was staying on the field and then in the second half they do this:

    3rd qtr- Interception
    3rd qtr- 13 yards and a punt
    4th qtr- -1 yards and a safety (yea, blame the D here *******)
    4th qtr- ran out the game

    3 drives in the 2nd half with a pick, punt, and a safety. The offense didn't play to win. They didn't score a ****ing point the entire 2nd half. The defense didn't give up a huge lead on it's own. They got 2 pts from Ben then got a TD because they kicked it off and the Jets had great field position at their own 42 yard line.

    BTW you can't say the Jets dominated the TOP in the 2nd half so the Steelers couldn't get the ball. Ben has over a 4 minute drive going and then throws a pick to kill the drive. So anybody that think the offense won that game is ****ing nuts. The defense scored 7 points while the offense scored 17 points and gave up 2 pts. They didn't do **** in the 2nd half.... spin it all you want. The defense scored 7 points and held the Jets to 17 which is a 10 pts spread.

    Class is indeed dismissed.

    Wrong. Ben was on pace for an MVP season because he was bailing out the offense on third & long all of the time, mostly because of atrocious play-calling on the first two downs.

    Just because 1 PLAYER has a route that is short of the endzone doesn't mean Ben has to throw it to that guy. Then again, Ben doesn't strike me as the sharpest tool in the shed.
    We get it. You think the rest of the team is perfect and Ben is the only thing wrong with it. Ben is not the problem, no matter how badly you want him to be.

    Oh i forgot we kept calling the run backwards and fall down play over and over again on 1st and 2nd down and then said bail us out Ben.

    Pretty much. Don't forget the bubble screens that went nowhere.
