“I’m embarrassed about the way I played,” he said. “I’m letting the whole team down. It just seems like one guy makes mistakes and that’s me. … In my wildest dreams, I didn’t think I’d be playing this bad.”
Boy does THAT about sum up yesterday’s game.
Know what sucks even more than watching the Steelers lose to the Raiders? Watching the Steelers lose to the Raiders while in the company of a diehard, lifelong Raiders fan in the form of my brother-in-law and hear him saying things like, “People do NOT give the Raiders enough credit. They have an incredible defense.” THAT sucks.
This game, was really all about Ben. Not that there weren’t other shiteous factors (hiya, running game and hiya, super long stupid penalties). But Ben SUCKED!
Hell even his own teammates were making fun of his ass:
My mother was calling for Charlie Batch after the first interception. Being the rational, calm person that I am, I waited until the third interception.
Ben was clearly going for some kind of record:
And I know that I can’t be alone in wondering what the hell Ben saw that stopped him from just running the six yards to the end zone and instead threw the ball to a triple covered Santonio Holmes (who I get the sneaking suspicion was ordered not to run after catching a punt, but to just catch the damn punt.) I mean, it seemed like a big guy like Ben could have just taken three big steps and fell into the end zone. It looked like he was going to … then I guess he got scared-ed or something. Sigh. Run, Ben! RUN!
All this leads us once again to the question of the season:
I don’t know what it was, but man, Ben better repent and get on God’s good side again soon, because I’ve had about enough of this.
