PostSubject: Ben is forcing the ball   Mon Oct 17, 2016 8:58 am

I noticed it last week and it was apparent again this week.

Ben is forcing the ball to receivers.

He wants the ball to go to Coates
He wants the ball to go to Rogers
He wants the ball to go to Brown

He wants it so badly, he's missing the open underneath guys.

One one of his picks yesterday he forced the ball to Coates, but underneath was The Outlaw Jesse James and instead of taking the 5 yard play plus YAC the defense was forced out on the field - yet again.

I didn't want to be the one to say it, but I agree.

Look at the Washington and K.C. games. Ben was spreading the ball around and everyone was getting touches.

It is me, or does it feel like Arians ball again, with Ben holding onto the ball, locking onto receivers, and looking for the 40 yard bomb all the time?

I'm not sure what has changed in his mind, but he's starting to miss opportunities to help us win the game.

No doubt he's looking for big plays instead of first downs. He needs to leave his tv off, all this greatness is going to his head.

He could force the ball because he is one of the most accurate QBs which people often overlook because of his touchness and playmaking ability. The last two INT were caused by his injury.

I'm not sure if he was forcing the ball to Coates or just severely overthrew James on that INT. He didn't plant his left leg properly and it didn't make for a very accurate throw.

I couldn't watch the game so I can't say much except lately he seems to be throwing to Coates way to much considering he is not catching most of the balls thrown to him.

He's just not a good road QB.

He looked good vs Washington. Maybe since they were a playoff team last year, they took them seriously?

I'm done making excuses for this team, Tomlin is 5-11 vs sub .500 teams on the road, this is unacceptable. This is the Steelers, not a fucking charity for shit teams on the road.

Yeah no excuses for the poor road play, we have got to shore that up.
