This is an actual thing that happened on Sunday during Pittsburgh's loss to Minnesota. We're not sure why CBS thought this would be a compelling or relevant comparison. Maybe they got confused because sometimes Big Ben the QB acts like he has the intelligence of a clock tower, but otherwise, we're baffled.
Not that bad at all. Certainly not worthy of a column. And thanks for the needless cheap shot at Roethlisberger.
It's a dumb comparison, but I suppose that's the point. It's not so awful; so much better than when they do serious comparisons (ie. remember the comparisons between the Blackhawks and Heat?). It's silly, but hey, why not. Maybe someone out there learned something about the tower :)
@ColTroutman It's not a column, it's a paragraph, and it's a pathetic mistake for a broadcast. Also, there are no needless cheap shots but I wonder who your favorite team might be...
My favorite team is the Atlanta Falcons. I have no care for the Steelers. And it WAS a needless cheapshot. Calling Roethlisberger dumb (which the author did in some other words) has nothing to do with this stupid graphic. And it's a fairly innocent, silly graphic that didn't require an AA post.
