Next Up: the Apocalypse

Aaron Schatz does a weekly column on Page 2 called "Snap Judgement" where he ranks (and comments on) QB performances from the previous week using some stats he created on his website, Football Outsiders. Anyway, here's his comment for Ben Roethlisberger after the Jets game:
From FO Steelers expert Ryan Wilson: "Not having Plax is really a problem because Roethlisberger doesn't have wideouts who can stretch the field. Randle El can beat people deep but he's about a foot shorter than David Patten, and Ward can't create separation on fly patterns."
To which prompted the following response from my buddy Andy:
"If you're a Steelers expert then I'm a late night Cinemax expert."
The thing is, I think Andy really is a Cinemax expert -- at least based on his after hours viewing habits. Now if that makes me an authority on all things Steelers, then so be it. OK, maybe not. But it's still funny.
