Who deserves the gameball after today's big win vs SF?
Gotta be AB. But Shazier deserves some consideration. He was all over the place.
Need to hand out a bunch today.
Kieth Butler definitely deserves one this week
Big Ben was money today
Wjat a game to miss...but in a game like this, you need 53 game balls!
Shazier played out of his mind today
Everyone on that list.
giving it to Ben, but in other thoughts-
Nice to see the young players on D starting to blossom
I thought Tomlin made a nice strategic challenge on the Niners drive at the end of the 3rd quarter. He did not win it, but it gave the D a needed breather and the stop was made on 4th down.
Willing to go out on a tiny limb here and make a prediction that AB sets an NFL record for receiving yards this season. Right now he is on pace to shatter the existing mark by over 600 yards. We are looking at a Hall of Famer here folks.
Going to be very hard to stop this offense at full strength, especially when Bell allows them to grind out the clock, and Bryant gives them a huge home run threat in single coverage.
Major props so far for D'Angelo who did an awesome job replacing Bell these 2 weeks.
Scobee awful on kicking for points but been terrific on Kickoffs. Figure that out.
Shazam awesome but AB had a record setting game.
AB, Ben or Shazier. All equally deserving
Tonight was a glimpse into what we could be. Shazier all over the place (gets my vote), pressure from the front 3, using our WRs to stretch the field, Ben on the money all night.
Still some way to go, but if we can pull out performances like tonight on a regular basis, then we won't even have to talk about the secondary.
I went Shazier. Homer buckeye pick. He played awesome today tho. Best player on D for us. In all honesty tho idk how you don't give it to AB. He's the best WR in the league and idt it's even close anymore. Unguardable.
Need more than one this week but I voted Ben, he was great, deep balls were money.
I said the O-Line... It all starts in the trenches..
I called AB a future Hall of Famer in the game thread and I firmly believe he will be one. I'm giving the game ball to Ben though because he even made DHB look like a stud today. He was also heads up on a couple of free plays. Berry is proving to be a great decision by Tomlin as well. Ben gets the gameball though. IF AB had gotten over 200yds I would have went with him I suppose but Ben was just studly today.
Munch got mine last week. That front 7 was really solid for most of the game and I'm glad Ben stayed upright. A few short years ago that would not have been the case.
I thought Gilbert, in particular, played a stellar game.
The early penalties were a shame for the o-line, but they more than made up for it as the game went on.
Ditto, and Moats was also quite pronounced.
I voted Shazier but nothing wrong with Ben, AB or Williams either, all had great games. The reason I went Shazier however is we all know our offense is good but our defense is what is going to hold us back. Shazier played lights out and led this defense, that is something we needed is a bad way. I liked what I saw out of this group today Blake laid so hits, McClendon made a few big stops but more important got penetration. Our ends played well but I feel it all started with Shazier.
Real nice to have the problem of who gets the game ball as oppose to what we saw last week.......... Nice win Steelers and way to bounce back.
Outstanding game for the team. Who were the starting CB's?
Blake and Gay. Cockrell came in at Nickel and later Boykin. Will Allen and Mike Mitchell were starting safeties.
Late game ball to the Raiders for making Ravens 0-2 for first time in hairball's regime. First draft pick brewing?
DHB!!!!! D Will!!!!
all the others herein this thread are paid to perform at a certain level
Ben has been playing so well that we take it for granted. Great stuff from AB and Shazier, but Ben is who really did it the most, in my opinion.
