    I agree he shouldn't have been in the game at that point.
    I think we focus so much on the Steelers that we think we're the only team that makes mistakes. Other teams make mistakes too. But yeah should't have been in there.

    Of course I watch it. I mean I think it's boring with all the quiet announcers and waiting on dudes to find the perfect club to make the perfect putt but I wouldn't consider myself an expert by any stretch. I mean I've never played a single inning of pro football so I'm hardly the genius you think I am but I know a little and baby I'll guess the rest.

    This will be my last take on it.....it was idiotic plain and simple. Tomlin has a propensity for leaving guys in way too long and it goes way back....Ben has the same propensity to continually force trying to make a play rather than a smarter decision. I don't see anything changing so let's just count our blessings these two dopes didn't cost the team the season. I don't know if anyone caught what Bradshaw said post game"..he said it was common practice to put the walking boot on afte what happened to Ben,to keep the swelling and mobility down...sounds like it's really gonna be a non-issue but stupid is what stupid does....deep breath we're off to KC....

    I think the conclusion that should have been jumped to in this situation would be "think again" or simply just "think" would have sufficed. LOL!

    I bet you Ben changed the play to a pass ....If you blame anyone you blame Ben or Haley ...Haley is the OC ...If he had put LJ in there Coach T would not have complained about it...

    Belichick leaves Brady in, in that scenario... all the time. I guess Belichick is an idiot.

    Football games are over when they are over.

    Probably was like should we get Landry up and throwing?

    BEN : no I can hand it off real good.

    Coach T: no we good.

    I don't think they were sitting there going god Dirty Laundry Jones sucks rocks, let's let Ben keep playing.

    The difference is that Brady knows when to just get rid of the ball and not take a hit.

    Not as good as with Ben, that's for sure.

    I never said Tomlin was an idiot. JMO that Ben shouldn't have been in at that point. Lucky my opinion has no bearing on any of Tomlin's decisions.
