EVERYONE MAKE NOTE OF THIS.... I AGREE WITH DOM!
Pitt's passing offense was pretty putrid statistically speaking and overall.
Ben's a rookie, and because of that, needs to be given alot of credit for what he has accomplished this year. He's not a Manning. he doesn't throw for alot of yardage/game, nor the TDs. But I see him as having other fine points (alot like a Krentzel in some aspects)..... he's smart, makes few mistakes, and is very efficient with the passing yardage he does have.
Now that may be put to the test come this post-season, and against the Pats. He didn't exactly "shine" last weekend versus the Jets.
Both teams are gonna emphasize the run, and use the passing game to set up their running attack. It's gonna be a ball control-clock control type of game. And I'm still not betting against Belicheck on this one.

Anyone think that is going to happen again?
The league's most overrated QB is about to be brought down to earth. I get sort of tired of sports fans being blown away by mediocrity. Rothlisberger isn't a 300 yard 4 TD kind of QB, which he doesn't need be in Pittsburgh, I understand, but I don't think defenses have to really plan for this caliber of player.
Put Rothlisberger on the Colts and they would have went nowhere.
I like Big Ben the person, and it isn't his fault he has been built up by the media, but he just isn't that good.
And whoever said the Steelers had the better passing game is smoking crack.
