Ben Roethlisberger: I thought Big Ben played a good game. Not great, but not bad. His stat line was: 17 for 27 for 163 with 1 TD and 1 INT and a QB rating of 76.6. I would give him a B. He made one mistake all game and it almost bit us in the arce. The throw was not horrible it was a great play by the Bungles DB.
This is the offensive edition. Tomorrow I will post a defensive edition.
Rashard Mendenhall: He played an absolutely phenomenal game. He made cut after cut after cut and also ran hard and strong. He made 3 big catches out of the backfield and wore down the Bungles on the ground. Stat Line: 22 Car for 99 YDS, 3 REC for 31 yds, 1TD. Overall I would give him an A+.
Hines Ward: Similar to Ben, a good game but not great. He had only 3 Rec for 10 yds, but he also had a TD along with a fumble. However, one of his biggest plays might be forgotten. He made a huge block on Mendy's long run in the 4th quarter. Overall grade would be a B.
Mike Wallace: Played an amazing game. He went for the ball when he needed too, he hung onto the ball (except once). Stat Line: 5 Rec 110 yds, 1td. A+
Antwaan Randel El: Another huge game by a WR. He not only made a big play on a third down, but he threw a decent pass to Wallace on the reverse that resulted in a TD. Stat Line: 1 Rec 10 yds, 1 Comp 39yds 1td, 1 rush 2yds.
Heath Miller: Quiet game from him but he played well. Blocked well and made 3 Rec for 21yds. B+
Maurkice Pouncey: Just another amazing game by the rookie. He simply dominated whoever the Bungles lined up on him. He moved them all. A++
Trai Essex: Played pretty poor for the game. However, he did not get dominated and he did not commit a penalty. I will give him a B-.
Flozell Adams: the injury affected him. He played a decent game. B
Doug Legursky: Missed a huge block that led to Reed's missed 46yd FG. I think he played pretty pathetically the whole time he was in. I would give him a C-.
Chris Kemoeatu: An average game overall. He did not do anything special but he did not cause any problems. B
Matt Spaeth: 1 rec for 12yds. He played well when on the field. It seems like Ben is gaining trust in him after all these years. A-.
Isaac Redman: An average game for him. He missed a 3rd and short carry but I don't blame him for that. He unfortuanatley suffered an injury. C
