Terry Bradshaw: Mike Tomlin is not my kind of coach

Steelers Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw has long been a critic of the team’s current coach, Mike Tomlin. That criticism is not subsiding.

Bradshaw said on 97.3 the Fan in San Diego that he thinks Tomlin acts like too much of a friend to his players, and not enough of an authority figure.

“I played for a tough sucker, and I was afraid of him, and we played our ass off for him because we feared him,” Bradshaw said of his coach, Chuck Noll. “I don’t see that with this guy. He’s chest bumping and all that. I’m the head of the corporation, I’m the CEO, I’m the chairman of the board, I’m talking to the stockholders telling them here’s how we’re gonna do at the end of the quarter. I’m selling this thing, and I’m not delivering the goods, which is championships. You’ve got to face the criticism. I’m sorry, but he’s not my kind of coach. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again.”

The Steelers were one of the best teams in the league last year and have won a Super Bowl under Tomlin, but Bradshaw says a better coach would have won multiple Super Bowls with the players Tomlin has coached in Pittsburgh.

“Mike Tomlin is winning football games, but at the same time, Super Bowls are disappearing, and that’s my criticism,” Bradshaw said. “How can you have this great offense and you being a defensive guy, and I think that football team should have been in another Super Bowl or two. How could they not be? And to lose at home to Jacksonville, I don’t care how good of a run Jacksonville is on, I don’t care how Jacksonville played New England in the championship game. You don’t lose 45-42. Are you kidding me? In a championship game?”

Bradshaw thinks firing offensive coordinator Todd Haley was a mistake, and it’s the side of the ball that Tomlin coaches, the defense, that needs to get better.

“He fires the offensive coordinator, and keeps the defensive coordinator,” Bradshaw said. “Now I don’t know the reason behind that, I’ve asked a few people and they’re as puzzled as I am. I don’t know why you fire the offensive coordinator who gave you 42 points, and kept the defense, unless you just thought you don’t really need an offensive coordinator, anyone can run that offense. So I’ll fire him, I’ll make the change there, and everybody will look and, go, he made some hard changes. But on offense? I’d fire that defensive coordinator, pack his ass out the highway, and I’d go find me somebody else who can do the job. I just don’t understand that at all.”

Late in the 2016 season, Bradshaw referred to Tomlin as a cheerleader, not a great coach. Nothing Tomlin has done since then has changed Bradshaw’s mind.

  1. I hear what you are saying Terry, but the game and the players who play it are a lot different than when you played. I think coaches who are “tough suckers” don’t work in the world today the way they once did. I don’t disagree with you, but Tomlin is a good coach in today’s game.

  2. I have a feeling Terry’s comments will be very well received among the same NFL fans who claim to be burning their Nike products.

    Just a hunch, of course.

  3. Bradshaw must have forgotten that the Jags controlled that game from the outset. 21-0 at the beginning of the 2nd quarter. It took Antonio Brown super-heroics to keep them in the game.

  4. Is he wrong with any of those comments? He is just stating common sense facts. Bradshaw in arguable the life long face of the Steelers, if he is concerned then it should arise some concern from the rest of us. He knows the history of that team, and what they should be doing, I would be concerned as well.

  5. That type of leadership doesn’t work anymore. Even at the Corporate level, those types of leaders are being walked out the door. Human resources will not have the managing by fear. The players are different now.

  6. Bradshaw might be from a different era, but we all saw how inept the coaching staff appeared at the end of that Patriots game last year. That debacle epitomizes the Steelers coaching mishaps….so like it or not, Bradshaw makes a valid point.

  7. Steelers are a mess. Bradshaw doesn’t like Big Ben. Doesn’t like the coach, but he is right. Tomlin IS a cheerleader. Add that to a REALLY watered down AFC and that’s why he’s been there this long.

  8. Some will take this as old school guy yelling “get off my lawn”. There is truth to what he says about the coordinators, Tomlin just seems clueless at times.

  9. Wow Lane Johnson does not want to go back in time and play for Chuck Knoll, that’s for sure.

    Lolz

    Ok ok that was pretty low hanging fruit, I admit it

  10. I don’t see how anyone can disagree with Bradshaw. Tomlins coaching at the end of the patriots game last year cost them a home AFC Championship game.

    He has done that numerous times.

  11. Right or wrong, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Bradshaw must remember though that his last super bowl was nearly forty years ago. Society and sports have changed since then. Being a hard ass coach like Noll doesn’t work as often as it used to.

  12. Bradshaw has made his point. The team lacks discipline and even though it’s 2018 discipline is always needed to win Super Bowls! I keeping asking what Tomlin adds to the team? He doesn’t motivate, he’s not an offensive mind, and his defense is not very good. So someone please what does he add to the team. He wins because he has a great quarterback and receives more credit from the media than he deserves!

  13. Not a big fan of Bradshaw the commentator, but he is right in his assessment of Tomlin. Steelers should have at least two more Super Bowls with the talent that has played under his tenure.

  14. “I have a feeling Terry’s comments will be very well received among the same NFL fans who claim to be burning their Nike products.”

    Geez, everything isn’t racist. If two parties are of different races, there’s always an assumed racist quality regardless of context. The Steelers are measured by Super Bowls, not just making the playoffs.

  15. Who cares. I swear he says the same exact every year, at least once. At this point it’s a ploy to get headlines. We all know how you feel Terry. You’ve burned all the bridges to Pittsburgh multiple times now, we get it. You’re too good for the Steelers. Move on.

  16. See James Harrison’s comments and watch AB’s live FB feed before NE crushed them in the AFCCG. Before you dismiss Harrison’s comments, look them up, they were well measured and thoughtful not bombastic. Tomlin wants to be one of the guys, while the coach in NE doesn’t play favorites at least not the extent Tomlin does and certainly gets the results.

  17. Most steeler players complain that the practices are very physical and tough, big ben has made the observation that sometimes he thinks the team is wore down thru the season , with the way they practice. Does not seem like a players coach to me.

  18. Part of the reason Haley was let go was to appease Ben. Remember Ben saying he wasn’t sure how many more years he would play about 18 months ago and then after Haley goes says he will play until he is 40. Terry’s grumpy, but basically I agree with him. Let’s not forget it was Tomlin’s decision to onside kick in that playoff game with over 2 minutes left that sealed the loss.

  19. Said it before
    Tomlin is t a coach he’s a hype man , all they need is a little person in a Steelers jersey standing next to him on the sideline and the image will be complete

    He’s not even close to being the face of the Steelers. I could name a dozen other players who would take that moniker before him. Terry had issues with the Rooney’s and hasn’t had a good relationship with the team or city since his retirement. Lambert, Ham, Greenwood, Bettis, Ward, Gildon, Farrior, Dawson, Stallworth and Swann are easily more apart of the face of the franchise now that Bradshaw will ever be.

  21. I agree with Bradshaw in some regards. I do believe that there is a lot of talent on the Steelers Defense, but it seems to not come together. Now for the Todd Haley being fired by the team, Haley is a cancer, and his players wouldn’t even talk to him during games because of that reason. There needed to be a change there.

  22. Only the New England Patriots have one multiple Super Bowls in the last 12 years or so. It’s not the NFL as Bradshaw knew where there was no free agency no CBA. The defense was actually ranked #5 in total defense last year but fell apart when Shazier got hurt. The DC should have changed the game plan with him out and did not.

  23. “It is better to be feared than loved. Love is a fleeting emotion while fear lasts forever.”

    ~Nicolo Machiavelli

  24. I thought Terry Bradshaw had problems with Chuck Noll too? He didn’t attend the funeral when he died a few years back.

  25. Have any of you ever listened to Terry Bradshaw talk on TV? Its incoherent and when they have him try do the play by play summary of Sundays game he cant keep up. It’s like an inside joke that everyone is in on.

    I did like him in Steven King’s “The Stand”.

  26. Just because what TB played under was vastly different that what he sees there now, doesn’t mean he’s advocating a pendulum swing back towards the extreme opposite.

    TB would probably like to see something more to the middle with what Tomlin is. Steelers would be better off for it too.

  27. I agree 100% with Bradshaw. Tomlin was hired because he was supposed to be this defensive genius who runs a 4-3 (but we know the real reason he was hired) and he comes in and wins a Super Bowl with Dick Lebeau (3-4) as his defensive coordinator. He then doesn’t win anymore, fires Lebeau and his defense has stunk ever since despite the defensive genius running the show and with all those offensive weapons he can’t get to the Super Bowl again with an offense scoring 30-40 points? Now I don’t think Cowher was a great coach either because the Steelers wins because they have a great organization and feel they can win with anyone as head coach and they have for the most part but Tomlin has and is wasting the prime years of his best players. If they had a real coach they probably would have won or been in atleast 2-3 more Super Bowls.

  28. Bradshaw isn’t my kind of boot licking laugh hound who screws up the 2 highlights he does every week. And gets paid millions to be a hack.

  29. Terry gave Chuck Noll ultimatums as a rookie, and in 1974 of either play me or trade me.

    So much for being afraid of him

    Bradshaw was in Pittsburgh when Noll died, and still didn’t go to the viewing, funeral, or meet Mrs. Noll in private.

    He’s a phony, loudmouth, windbag.

  30. The biggest reason that Tomlin has only one Superbowl is Bill Belichick. It’s a bit like being Jerry Sloan. Sure, you had great players on the team, went deep in the playoffs, and won lots of games. But, you had the misfortune to coach when one of the greatest coaches and players of all time were active.

    ———

    Mike Tomlin does get paid millions to be a hack.

  32. Terry, I’m no Steelers fan, but the reason the Steelers haven’t won more Super Bowls under Tomlin is about 600 miles due east in this little town called Foxboro…

  33. Tomlin, like his predecessor, is an emotional coach. He is a great peer and coach when winning, but wants to be a dictator/disciplinarian when the losing starts. On the pro level of any sport or business, if the leader is too chummy with the work when there are successes and comes down hard when there is poor performance, the track record will be littered with missed opportunities and ‘coulda woulda shoulda’ excuses. Tomlin and his predecessor were gifted with some once in a lifetime talent and only have two titles to show for it. Let’s be truly honest here…Cowher left some potential titles on the table as well.

  34. Definition of medicocrity. had the worst poassing D statistically across the board in 2006, and then was mysteriously promoted to head coach.

    Or, maybe it was not so mysterious and just arrogance by Pitt to be this fake trailblazer of hiring a black coach just because they’re Pittsburgh.

    Meanwhile, Dungheap goes into the HOF?

    What planet am I on here?

    ——–

    Tomlin and the Steelers have a worse win/loss percentage against the Pats than almost any team in the league including the Dolphins and the Jets.

  36. Even a blind, country bumpkin Louisiana Bradshaw squirrel gets a nut sometimes. In this instance, Terry Paxton Bradshaw is 100% correct.

  37. Bradshaw’s right Tomlin is a soft, players coach with little to no control over his players. They may respect him but view him too much like a friend/peer.

  38. “Lambert, Ham, Greenwood, Bettis, Ward, Gildon, Farrior, Dawson, Stallworth and Swann are easily more apart of the face of the franchise now that Bradshaw will ever be.”

    How about “Mean” Joe Greene, Franco Harris, Mel Blount, Randy Grossman or Rocky Bleier to name a few more.?.?

  39. the boss has to be the boss.. if a worker can decide for himself how to built the widget then there might be as many widgets as workers and none worth a flip…. that’s why there are bosses

  40. Terry played in an era where men were men; now we have social media butterfly snowflakes who have an inflated vision of themselves. I agree with Terry – Tomlin is a friend – he isn’t much of a man himself – his minions do whatever they want without ever paying a price and Tomlin has had some of the dirtiest players to ever play the game on his team.

    I’ll side with Terry even with his current state of Mad Cow.

  41. Maybe if Bradshaw had a coach that was a friend and not just an authority figure, he would still have a brain capable of complete thoughts

  42. Geez, everything isn’t racist. If two parties are of different races, there’s always an assumed racist quality regardless of context. The Steelers are measured by Super Bowls, not just making the playoffs.

    So the white Steelers fans who were complaining about the team hiring a black coach instead of a white coach about 10 years ago aren’t racist? Because I sure remember a lotta whining from old white Steelers fans about that.

  43. Longtime Steelers fan here – Terry Bradshaw is not my kind of former Steeler for reasons including but not limited to his petty fued with Coach Noll and expressing his devotion to Art Rooney at his HOF induction while blowing off Mr. rooney’s funeral funeral in 1988

    This from longtime Steelers PR man Joe Gordon who was with the team during the Bradshaw years – “He’s the most insincere person I’ve ever known”

    Not knowing why Todd Haley was fired confirms how out of touch Bradshaw is with regard to the Steelers – everyone knows Ben Roethlisberger hated Haley and was the prime force to move Haley out

    These latest shots at Tomlin are just more click bait from Bradshaw, who last played 45 yeras ago and has passed his sell by date as a broadcaster

  44. In his day Knoll was the best coach in the league and one of the main reasons the Steelers won the 4 Super Bowls under him.

    In this day, Belichick is the best coach in the league and one of the main reasons the Pats have won 5 Super Bowls and been to 3 others under him.

    I think Tomlin is a good but not great coach. There is no shame in losing to the best, but I can certainly understand the frustration of the Steelers, Bradshaw and the fans.

  45. Well, Bradshaw is far from alone. Tomlin has got his butt handed to him so many time by Bellichick. Many feel Tomlin is a substandard coach. The Steelers tend to have the same problems year in and year out, play under their great talent level, and are one of the worst teams in mid-game adjustments and game planning. Fact. Colin Cowherd agrees that Tomlin has issues as well.

    ——————

    The problem is that he is right every year. The Steelers are underachievers.

  47. Sad to see the Steelers disappoint every year. If Belichick was the coach and Ben had the brain of Brady they’d be in the Super Bowl every year.

    I don’t see how anyone can disagree with Bradshaw. Tomlins coaching at the end of the patriots game last year cost them a home AFC Championship game.

    He has done that numerous times.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Not that i disagree with the Tomlin sentiment, but winning that game wouldn’t have mattered all that much given they lost at home to the Jaguars. Now, if they went on the road and lost, might be a different story, but you’re at home in the playoffs and lost to the inferior team, which you also played (and lost) in the regular season. If you’re any decent coach, you’ve would have learned from the lost and prepared your team mentally and had a game plan against that opponent.  The fact that they were so flat for most of the game, was the tragic piece.  

  49. Hate to say it but Bradshaw hit it on the nose as far as the Steelers fan base sees it. Tomlin gives great Monday speeches to the media but to many times he can’t have the team ready for his opponent. He pats guys on the head when he should be dead in their back side. He gets mad at the wrong players to many times.

    ******************

    Like, he literally gets paid to share his opinions on the game of football. It’s almost as if you were trying to say something stupid.

  51. Not a Steeler fan but it’s hard not to acknowledge what a tremendous franchise they’ve been for the past 4 decades. They’ve had 3 Head Coaches since when, 1970 or thereabouts? That’s incredible.
    I find it interesting how in NY, Eli’s two SB wins are celebrated no matter what. A 3-13 year like last season? No problem, doesn’t matter. Nothing will tarnish 2007 and 2011. Giants fans are just wondering what year Eli gets the call from Canton.
    In Pittsburgh, they have the same number of recent Super Bowl wins as the Giants but Steeler fans are borderline miserable. And their team NEVER puts up a 3-13 season. Pittsburgh fans are like Yankees, Patriots and Alabama fans; they don’t necessarily think they should win a title EVERY year. Just every second year.

    Steelers are a mess. Bradshaw doesn’t like Big Ben. Doesn’t like the coach, but he is right. Tomlin IS a cheerleader. Add that to a REALLY watered down AFC and that’s why he’s been there this long.
    —————————————————————————–
    A Cowboys fan commenting on what team is a mess? At least the Steelers have been to a couple of Super Bowls and won one with Tomlin. Since winning the Super Bowl in 1995, your boys have won a grand total of 3 playoff games in the past 23 years.

  53. In the NFL you have a successful coaching style if you deliver Super Bowl wins. If you don’t deliver the wins then there must be something wrong. Of course that is short sighted, as it’s hard to deliver Super Bowl wins, but that’s just how a coach is judged.

  54. I have a good friend who is a die hard Steelers fan. He has told me the exact same things about Tomlin for years!
    So as far as I’m concerned, Bradshaw hit the nail right on the head.

  55. Tomlin reminds me of the snorting bull that charged Bugs Bunny in those great cartoons of the past. No matter how much he snorted and charged, Bugs always got the best of him.
    The same is true of Tomlin. He snorts and charges, but the other teams get the best of him, with the exception of one time.

  56. The steelers should be the best team in the afc. They are certainly the most talented. Terry is right Tomlin is a cheerleader and a coward. He may be able to manage a locker room but on the field, in game, hes a joke. He makes excuses for poor play and trips return men. As a diehard pats fan I hope the Steelers keep him forever. As long as Tomlin is there the Steelers are as big of a threat to win the AFC as Buffalo. Cheers

  57. The only problem with this, is that TB had an all out disdain for Noll. And as tough as Noll was, several players are on record as saying Noll treated TB differently, because of how thin skinned TB was.

  58. Mike Tomlin is as bad as Marvin Lewis, Lovie Smith, Tony Dungy, Romeo Crennel, Ray Rhodes, Todd Bowles, Dennis Green, Jim Caldwell, Anthony Lynn, Leslie Frazier, Art Shell, Hue Jackson, Raheem Morris, Herm Edwards or Mike Singletary.

  59. They might possibly have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL

    What NFL coach wouldn’t have a winning record with a:
    Franchise QB
    #1 WR
    #1 RB
    Top 3 O-line
    He was hired as a Defensive Guru

    They constantly underachieve
    They get out coached in every big game
    They are rarely ready to play in the biggest games
    They overlook opponents
    They talk before they think
    There is a total lack of discipline

  60. Mike Tomlin does get paid millions to be a hack.

    Some one is jealous ‘this black man makes more in one year than she will make in his life time…..I bet that sucks.

  61. Tomlin is fake.

    All that tough guy ra ra bull has given them a soft defense.

    Terry won a lot more than Mike did

  62. Tomlin and the Steelers have a worse win/loss percentage against the Pats than almost any team in the league including the Dolphins and the Jets.

    But the Steelers have a much better record against Goodel than the Pats…..you remember the loss of draft picks and the cheater stain you cant erase….you remember that don’t you Francis.?

  63. The fact that Dummy Bradshaw actually put two sentences together is incredible in and of itself. But having those sentences actually make sense is truly unbelievable. Totally agree with TB on this one.

  64. He’s spot on with the defense. That side of the ball is a disaster and has been ever since Troy Polamalu retired.

  65. Yup, like another poster said, somebody ALWAYS has to make it racial –

    “… Tomlin was hired because he was supposed to be this defensive genius who runs a 4-3 (but we know the real reason he was hired) ”

    It’s 2018 and good ol’ boys still think that EVERY job is just supposed to be handed to the white guy, no matter how effing incompetent… Try living in another’s shoes. You have to be twice as good to get half as much.

  66. Tomlin is a pretty smart guy, but he refuses to adjust the gameplan at halftime. Dude literally makes zero halftime adjustments, and has been called out on it for years.

  67. Its a BS argument by Terry because we have no way of validating it. He makes it appear if Tomlin was a tougher, no-nonsense coach it would have resulted in more Superbowl wins. Well, I will argue having a more no-nonsense coach would have resulted in fewer wins that what Tomlin had because he would have lost the team. How many no-nonsense coaches are out of work right now? Younger coaches that identify with the younger players are the trend and that is part of the reason Pittsburgh is a perennial playoff team every year. That plus having a franchise QB but I digress.

  68. Tomlin won with Cowher’s team. Then he brought in all his lazy BLM bros and they’ve been garbage ever since.

  69. I wonder if Terry is thinking about the inverse here: that he wouldn’t have played hard for a coach that didn’t terrify him. That to me says a lot more about the man being coached than the man coaching.

    None the less, Tomlin is a great coach (aside from the tripping thing that was ridiculous), and had he not coached in the Brady/Belichick era would likely have several SB wins by now. Same for Manning (who was arguably better than Big Ben in every QB category) great QB just couldn’t beat the Pats when it mattered.

    Not a Pats fan in the least.

  70. The Eagles just won the Super Bowl with a player friendly coach. Stupid argument.

    The defense hasnt been the same since they got rid of Dick LeBeau. They lost that old school Steeler nastiness. Thats the real issue.

  71. OMG TB… Mike Tomlin in just 11 years, has appeared in two (2) Super Bowls, winning one; just as Bill Cowher did, over a 14-year span, won one/lost one.

    TB… if you can do better, then you should coach Big Ben/Pitts to their next win.

    OMG… TB…

    ——————————————————————————–

    What was the real reason?

  73. That, and overrated Ben running around trying to get Brady’s or Ray Lewis’ used clothing before/after Pats game. They care more about being liked (Ben isn’t) than they do about winning games.

  74. Black and gold articles always bring the trolls running. Bradshaw should get over his bitterness.

  75. Just looked up Terry’s career stats…how does this guy have any room to bluster about anything. If he played today’s game he’d have been cut after one season. Go home Bradshaw. He piggybacked that 70’s defense more so than Eli Manning did in his Superbowl runs.

  76. Can someone tell Terry that without some of the best receivers of all time out there making him look good and one of the greatest defenses of all time that he would be an absolute nobody with no super bowls? Go away Terry, you’re drunk.

  77. Tomlin won his SB with Cowher’s team, GM, and coaching staff. I don’t often agree with Bradshaw, but he’s not wrong about Tomlin.

    and that, in addition to free agency and the greed of the players is why the product has become crap.

  79. Sounds like someone is a whiny spoiled brat. Winning a Super Bowl is never a given. There are 31 other teams trying to win a Super Bowl. Half the NFL is coached by authoritarian control freaks. Other than the ones named Belicheck and Coughlin, none of the control freaks are winning multiple chips.

  81. The “they should have won more Super Bowls” people kill me. New England literally could be on a five game losing streak in the Super bowl, and that’s the best coach and QB I’ve ever seen. The only teams I’d say that should have won more than they did were the 85 era Bears, the Mike Martz Rams, and this Seattle Seahawk team because of greater talent top to bottom. Otherwise, people are simplifying how difficult it is to win a one-off tournament like that without a whole lot of things going your way.

  82. Bradshaw tells it like it is. “Next man up”, “a hat on a hat”, “the standard is the standard”, and on and on with his ridiculous ‘verbalistics’. The man is a BS artist of extreme; a product of the Rooney Rule that should have never been a H/C cause he doesn’t demand discipline in the coaches or players. Should have been fired years ago. Scru-U-Mike!

  83. Big “Watch the door for me” Ben has committed numerous crimes against women. Terrible organization to continue to employ him and Tomlin. Bell is smart to walk away from them.

  84. Where does Terry get this ‘players coach” crap with Tomlin? If anything he DISTANCES himself from his players.

    Now a guy like Nagy….that’s a guy towel snapping in the locker room with the boys.

    How many times has Tomlin called out problem players?

    I can’t stand Tomlin, but Terry you need to lay off the bourbon.

  85. It’s like if the Penguins would have not fired Dan Bylsma. Bylsma rode an incredibly talented Penguin team to a Stanley Cup win and then although that talent was enough to always assure a wining season he would pathetically UNDERACHIEVE in the post season. Bylsma was given another chance with the Buffalo Sabres and then quickly fired when it was proven beyond doubt he was a crap coach. Just insert the words Mike Tomlin and Steelers for Dan Bylsma and Penguins.

  86. JustBlameTrump, dude, get a job. You troll every single article on this site. Who’s your team? Brave enough to say?

  87. Terry Bradshaw is living his high school glory days. Rule with fear and a heavy hand has faded into an era of participant trophies, elimination of PE activities that can cause emotional damage, and a lowering of standards to create equality. Current players are about as likely to understand the old ways as they are to understand why a kid put a dime in his penny loafers.

  88. “Right now there is exactly one coach with a better resume than Tomlin. That’s Belichick the NFL best coach in 40 years.”

    Tom Coughlin has a better resume than Tomlin. And Sean Payton, John Harbaugh, John Fox Doug Pederson and Mike McCarthy and Pete Carroll have a similar resume as Tomlin

  89. I’m as big a Terry Bradshaw fan as the next Steelers Fan that was a fan when the only Steelers Fan I knew was me, but he needs to temper his remarks or I will disown him.

  90. he’s just like the 72 Dolphins living on past glory, scornful of everything that came after him. He’s always been an embarrassing buffoon.

    Bradshaw has made his point. The team lacks discipline and even though it’s 2018 discipline is always needed to win Super Bowls! I keeping asking what Tomlin adds to the team? He doesn’t motivate, he’s not an offensive mind, and his defense is not very good. So someone please what does he add to the team. He wins because he has a great quarterback and receives more credit from the media than he deserves!

    ======================================

    yea man his qb was sure playing lights out yesterday. i mean, whats not to love about 5 turnovers by ben in a tie w cleveland. ben won the power struggle thats why haley was ousted. the infighting between ben and haley was too much for everyone to deal with. now ben has to carry this, but he sure didnt yesterday. im sure he will just blame someone else and the rooneys will be ok with that reasoning.
