    “Roethlisberger’s come a long way since making eight throws a game and handing the ball off,” Minnesota coach Brad Childress said. “I don’t think they’re at all that kind of football team anymore.
    A true statement, albeit a bit exaggerated. I'm pretty sure Ben used to throw at least 15 times per game in the past. But what else would you expect with "the Bus" on the team? Until they get another running back like that, the morph into a passing team is a given.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    With Mendenhall, I think they're morphing more into a K-Gun offense, ala Kelly and the Bills.
    He can run from the spread and is a good receiver out of the backfield.

    I was listening to this on KFAN last night.
    It was with PA.
    They were going through questions at mach one and this is taken out of context like always.
    It was a compliment.
    He meant that Rothlesburger is relying on his arm not the run.
    If it is a shot at anyone, it would be the running backs, but Chilly was just saying they are a different team than when Ben first won a Superbowl/got into the league.

    JMHO!

    When I think of these two teams matching up it's tough to not think about the purple people eaters versus the steel curtain.
    Jump to today and even though the statistics may show something different, both of these teams are capable of killing you through the air or on the ground.
    Should be an epic battle.
    Damn, I think they beat us then so I suppose they are going to beat us now. >
