10 of 22 for 166 one touchdown and TWO picks. Against a BAD Seattle defense.
10 points allowed DESPITE Bens 2 "gifts" stopping an OUTSTANDING Seahawk offense.
Ben was young so he gets a pass, and he AND the defense got us there, but IN THAT SUPERBOWL Ben was ANYTHING BUT CLUTCH. The defense was the difference.
Bens second SB run you (and we know who you are) Troy has a pick six to seal the deal in the Ravens game and DESPITE YOUR ripping the defense in the SB, they gave up 20 to an outstanding offense AND while Ben was indeed clutch, he was spotted 7 by the Harrison pick 6. Therefore, you have shared credit for that win.
You said do I want a defense remembered for "stats" or "moments". How bout BOTH?
2008 number 1 defense, DPOY has team record sacks, championship clutch playoff pick and outstanding HIGHLIGHT REEL level return by Troy for a touchdown. Only to be surpassed by what is UNQUESTIONABLY THE GREATEST SINGLE DEFENSIVE PLAY IN SUPERBOWL HISTORY.
That my friends is ONE SEASON.
Yeah, I'll say there are some pretty good MOMENTS to accompany those stats.
