    Hence the "probably" in my first response.

    I think you're previous post is correct. Doesn't matter much who's at QB...because neither option seems able to overcome whatever the issues are on this team.

    Yep...need to run efficiently (good blocking, no flags). Also probably need some explosive plays in the running game.

    Nothing wrong with Ben tonight. 103 passer rating, 3 TDs and no interceptions. All with a half brained OC and no offensive line.

    Those late turnovers gave him some great short fields to work with. We took advantage but that Mike Williams TD broke us.

    We really missed Minka tonight. But especially on that one play.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 11 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Currently, Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in 4 years.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís held on to Don Shula for too long for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2021 ) holding on to Tomlin for too long for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches.

    agreed, Ben definitely still gives us the best chance to win.

    Success rate is about how many yards you get vs how many you need.

    Generally I think it's something like:
    1st down: 40% of yards to go
    2nd down: 60% of yards to go
    3rd down: 100% of yards to do

    I think for running plays, anything over 5 yards is also considered successful. Not sure if there is a similar think for passing.

    And because it's a newer thing, I think different places sometimes have small differences in how they calculate it.

    Nice to see Ben have good game tonight... Even in a loss. Trying to enjoy the end of a great career... Even if we're not a good team.

    If we continue to see last night's version of Ben the Steelers will win games down the stretch and compete for a playoff spot. Obviously, at this point, the defense needs to get healthy to help Ben from needing scores on every drive. But, last night made me feel like Ben has enough in the tank for the team to be successful this year.

    Ben has enough in the tank, but too many other issues to expect this team to be a serious contender this season, IMO.
