Now can we start to panic a little bit?
1. Starting with the superficial, Ben needs to get rid of the porn ‘stache. However, Troy Polamalu can totally keep the beard he’s growing. Still hot. Troy would still look hot dressed entirely in bedazzled clothing from the Quacker Factory.
2. There is no doubt in my mind that something is not quite right with Ben. He has no touchdowns. He has lots of interceptions. Personally, I’m going with post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by the image of Martha Fleishman behind the wheel of her car seared into his brain.
3. The trick play in the second with Gardocki faking out a punt? Even though it didn’t work, I was encouraged to see them try it.
4. I blame Bob Smizik for writing this last week:
Which also means the Steelers will win this one.
Way to jinx it, BOB.
5. I fear that if Ben has one more game like this, the fans are going to start booing him and asking for Charlie. I might be okay with that.
