…was the super bowl against the cardinals.

But besides that, the game today against the Colts was unprecedented.

Agreed.

It is hard to imagine how he could have played much better yesterday. Only three passes where he really "missed" (one that was almost picked off--thankfully not), making me feel like a moron last week for griping about his accuracy.

But I think that we got a look at what Ben can be with good offensive line play. Honestly, can you remember the last game Ben had where he wasn't sacked, or at least getting knocked around? He looked like he was sitting in his recliner flipping channels yesterday.

I know that we often blame him for some of the sacks, but clearly the Oline took it up a notch yesterday. It was a think of beauty to watch him work with solid protection.

Agreed that this might not be Ben's "greatest" game, unless you're just looking at points and stats (Goodellball).  But man, it's really hard to find fault with much of anything the offense did.  Hard to remember a game where they were so dominant in every part of the offense.  And I agree, the OL did its job, soundly, the best pocket Ben's had to work with in, well, ever?  If they can replicate that and the young guys come to play every week, this O could be the one I dreamed we'd have.

IMO, start to finish, that was Ben's greatest single game performance.

In XLVIII, he had his greatest drive.  It was THE drive.  Shit, might be the greatest drive in SB history.

There was a series when the Colts were blitzing, and Ben was just getting rid of it a perfect second before any threat could come his way, barely setting up, just like he was the sole adult in some pickup game with a bunch of kids.  It was like 2 or 3 plays in a row, it looked so easy, that was the Terminator Ben.   tt02

It could be argued that this was the greatest single game ever played by an NFL QB.  Most of the other 500yd+ QB's lost their games.  Norm Van Brocklin's game was against a scrub team, just up from the minors, they only won a single game.

This was against a top 5 defense in the league, they were shredded.  Did anyone see what happened to (6-1) Dallas last night when the (2-5) 'Slurs blitzed Romo?  He crumbled.  And the running game, while it still produced, was not a factor.  

What happened when Indy blitzed BR?  He played better.
