    About time you got back around here!

    :sad4:My beloved Steelers need to bench Big Ben for a while. What a ******** game! 8 sacks? Are you kidding me? Why can't he get rid of the damn ball?????? He is beginning to appear more and more like Jim McMahon with his injuries and ability. At least he doesn't whine like that guy did, YET.

    Did you watch the game? Eagles blitz and in-ability of the Steelers line to pick it up caused sacks. Nothing wrong with Ben's play.

    Also remember he's playing on a hurt shoulder.

    SD/OAK game of the week. Over under is about 80 pts as both teams leave defense on the bus again.

    yea cmon now, did you really watch the game? He didn't have a chance to get rid of the ball, he had a bum shoulder and now a bum hand. There is absolutely nothing wrong with his ability. The eagles just dominated the line of scrimmage.

    Um....betty wtf. You cant even compare them two. Big Ben didnt get slammed by Charles Martin on an illegal play which everyone knows destroyed McMahons career even though he wont openly admit it. Also, they played real smash mouth football back in the day compared to what it is now. On another note...how many consecutive season games has Ben won? I'd like to see him topple McMahons 22 straight. That's like comparing Peyton Manning and Joey harrington.

    Not saying Big Ben is not good, but her statements about Jim are way off. That guy had a crap offensive line. If he didnt have Payton<---could block like a lineman if he had to, he would have looked WORSE than Joey Harrington...or Big Ben last week.

    The comment was in reference to him being injured all the time. Holy Hell. I couldn't care less what ended Jimmy's career. He sucked. His behavior was what got him more attention along with his injuries rather than his abilities. Never liked him EVER as a player.

    Big Ben has lacked the quickness he had before his motorcycle accident. He is NOT the same QB that he was.

    Yes, I watched the game, painful as it was. Yes the Eagles blitzed. Seems the back-up quarterback was capable of getting rid of the ball just fine the short time he was in there.

    If you are being blitzed ALL the time, wouldn't that warrant more screen passes or SOMETHING for Christ's sake? Sorry, he doesn't possess the quickness that he once did. He screwed his own career with a face-plant from his cycle joy riding whilst being cool.

    Again, the comment was a comparrison of the injuries. I don't take a soft QB too well.

    Why does he insist of playing with a hurt shoulder? Why did he insist on starting a season the last time after his cycle accident and two weeks or so after having his appendix removed? Why? Because he's a man and has an insatiable ego it seems. Sorry, as the team leader on the field, he should have been quicker. He was able to do it at the beginning of his career.

    Did I mention I always hated Jimmy M.? :loser: Being a media ***** was all he was really good at besides being soft.

    Anyone else happy about Favre losing again besides me?:D

    Jesus Betty don't even know where to start with you.

    1 - Do you really think Ben or any of the NFL QB's call their own plays? *Laughs*. Why do you think they wear wristbands and have mics in their helmets? The Offensive co-ordinators call the plays. The best a QB can do is audible or improvise if the play falls apart. Blame lack of screens on the co-ordinator.

    2 - If Ben's injury was the problem, did he overthrow people? Did balls not get to receivers? That was not the problem.

    3 - He did not wreck by 'joyriding'. Do you even read the news or follow anything? He wrecked while driving in a staight line and a 62 year old senile woman turned her car in front of him because she didn't see him. No way for him to stop. The only thing Ben did wrong was not wear a helmet and thus sustained lots of facial injuries. The 'joyrider' that got injured was Kellen Winslow jr that flipped his bike while riding wheelies in a parking lot and almost killed himself. You must be confused.

    4 - How do facial injuries make him 'slower'? He had no damage to his torso/legs from the accident. It was a face plant on a windshield. Remember Ben has always been over 6ft. He's no Doug Flutie. He is a good runner but was never quick.

    Yes, I'm a Ben fan because I've been rooting for him before you ever heard of him. And I also despise people who open their mouths (or in this case type) when the don't know what the hell they are talking about.

    So here is the update by my records at the end of Sunday.

    Looks like the Pitt/Balt game will not matter in the standings since best anyone else will do is 8 wins if Balt wins.

    Let me know where I can collect my money.

    Also note that Betty did not have the balls to even put up a set of picks. I would have enjoyed beating her as well.

    Theo 9-3 (Pitt)
    Tyrtle 7-5 (Pitt)
    Techthys 7-5 (Balt)
    Tuefel 6-6 (Balt)
    Cetric 6-6 (Pit)
    Firecrazy 5-7 (Balt)

    Well, just past halftime and my Steelers seem to of had their offensive line melt somehow. Dang, Flaco is looking quite impressive. :)

    Time for work, so off I go.

    I am pretty sure that I am still up a mil from the previous, but if not, lemme know and I'll get it to you.

    This week, the Baylor Bears will whip the Oklahoma Sooners by atleast 40 points. Just like they beat Northwestern State and Washington State.

    My thoughts exactly now! Oh hell yes! How awesome to come home and see the news after work!! I should be ashamed for doubting them and Big Ben. I should be learned by now. I can't wait to watch the highlights.

    Big Ben got way more credit for that win then he deserves. It was a great game. couple of rookie mistakes, both the Coach and the QB --flacco's first TD should have been the pass to Mason, he had the ball under control and toes both in the endzone and no challenge-- Gameball to Ward for getting under Johnsons skin although that was a pretty week call. Steelers defense got it back together for the third quarter after being humbled in the second. Once you get to OT it is more luck then anything. The real winners were the trainers cause both teams training rooms will be packed for Sundays games and both have tough challenges. Pitt is in Jacksonville and Balto hosts the Titans, two more slobberknockers!

    This year's games seem to be closer and more exciting. I'm sure if I googled it I would be wrong, but it seems that way to me this year.

    If I'm correct, 3.3 mil - 1mil = 2.2 mil +1 mil =3.3 mil. Is this correct?
