Big Ben the great uncle

When the Chiefs beat the Steelers this year I commented that Ben Roethlisberger looked like he was 100 years old.

Mike Tanier wrote a really funny piece in the New York Times today explaining why each team in the playoffs will lose.

He actually let the Chiefs off easy mocking how bizarre some of our too many turnovers have been.

But boy did he turn it on for Big Ben. Here goes:

“Ben Roethlisberger, who is expected to retire at season’s end, now throws and runs like a great-uncle playing a pickup game at a backyard cookout after three I.P.A.s and two helpings of potato salad, and the Steelers’ offense looks like archival footage of a 1928 Pottsville Maroons-Dayton Triangles game played in a vacant lot during a downpour.”

Brutal, but so funny.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am scared shitless he is going to pull off a cape and play like Superman Sunday.

So as usual, I’m nervous.
