Where to begin?
Let’s start with Benny.
Benny. Bennybennybenny. WTF?
I think The Chin summed up Ben’s performance best:
Yeah, shit is right. If his passes weren’t completely off, they were deflected or intercepted. And I’m pretty sure he checked out of his brain every time a third down came up.
“For the first time in a long time, I felt like I was not quite on the same page with the receivers,” Roethlisberger said.
Now? Just this exact moment you NOW feel this when we’ve been feeling this almost all season?
Oy. I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again. Sometimes I think my grandmother would throw better than Benny, and she’s been dead for three years.
2. In fact “shit” pretty much sums up the performance of Willie Parker too.
“[The fumble] changed everything,” Parker said. “I take the good with the good, but on that fumble it was my fault, so I take the bad with the bad.”
And there? You have the facts of life.
3. I can’t believe I’m going to say this. One bright spot yesterday was I thought, the play of Santonio Holmes. Believe you me that bile rises in my throat as I type that, but I cannot hate the sheer athleticism of the guy.
4. Let’s be real here Burghers. Cowher is not coming back next year. I’m saddened by that because as much as he drives me crazy, and as much as I’d like to take his chin in my hand and give it a good strong shake, I have a lot of love for the guy.
Ima miss him.
