why when i watch the steelers pass.......Ben has about a 3 step drop and he has a defender on him that he has to excape before he throws........and then when the other team passes it look like he has all the time he needs to throw the ball????

I think if anyone had any doubts about how good the Rats' D is, those doubts have been squashed like a bug. I hate the Rats and as much as it kills me to say it, they are playing like a playoff team right now on both sides of the ball.

That INT saved our behinds - now let's turn it into some points - still a LOT of time left. Glad I said almost in my last post - LOL!

That fumble was Ben's fault? Of course, putting in a less mobile QB in an obvious pass on every play situation is just the kind of stupid call this coaching staff has been making all season.

Ummm - did I say that fumble was Ben's fault???? I was just making an observation, as Batch was throwing on the sidelines and the announcers mentioned that the trainers were looking at Ben's shoulder.

I'll still take Ben anyday over the endless parade of chumps we had to endure at the position for 22 years between Bradshaw's retirement and our picking up Ben in the draft.

Thats for sure.....and I have defended him and stuck with him all year but this one is on him....He played scared and intimidated....no leadership today at all....OK....punt me now if you cant take it....

I agree - Ben (along with the majority of the rest of the team) has had a really bad year. After what he did in his first two seasons, I'm not about to declare he "sucks," though.

Not a problem fansince. Believe me - I feel the frustration, too. This team is far more talented than they are showing today, but we have to face it - the Rats are the better team on that field this afternoon.

All is not lost, even though our playoff chances seem to be. Beating the Bungles next week would be almost just as good. I can deal with the Rats being in the playoffs - they've earned it, but the thought of those striped convicts in the playoffs this season makes me want to retch.

Unfortunately, today's game is once again a perfect example of the Steelers beating themselves.

We've had many problems this year on both sides of the ball . Be it in the secondary, on the O-line and at the Wr position.
But THE weakest link this season has been the so called "Golden Boy" god send Qb. The one with the relatively weak arm for his size.
The one with the slow release. The one whom doesn't diagnose coverage with speed or efficiancy. The one who's always got an excuse. (more often than not given to him by fans whom are just simply elated that he's not Kordell or Tommy)
I know his groupies will retort ,..... .."He'll get better". "It's the O-line's fault,.... and the elderly woman that made him nosedive into her windshield "! ("After Coach failed to make his grown azz wear a helmet"!)
Or my personal favorite,... "He's great as long as he stay's below 20 attempts" ! Knock it off!
What kind of standard is that for a an actual QB ? That's madness. Say what you will but the TRUTH is,.....ben isn't the second coming of Marino or Elway, he's not even among the elite of his peers.(Manning, Brady, Brees, Mcnabb)
To be honest,...... from a pure passing standpoint he's not even comparable to Rivers, Leinhart, Palmer or even Jay Cutler.
If this is heresy,......then i'll take the charge,.....and shoot the finger at the judge.
With that said,..... here's looking forward to us bringing in some impact players next season to not only solidfy the secondary and O-line. (As well as a power compliment to Willie)
But also to carry the "Golden Boy",......and he'll get the credit. Much to the disgrace of the rest of the team.

I cant agree with everything you've said, but today is certainly on Ben. So is most of the year. His INTs killed us this year. The Red-Zone stat about highest Red-Zone turnovers in the league is all about Ben. He only played well against bad football teams. NO and KC are the only playoff contention teams we beat all year. Our other vics came against Clev 2, TB, Car, Mia. And dont forget KC, TB, Car, Mia were not starting their #1 QBs. This season is a disaster. 7 wins flatters this team.

There is enough blame to go all the way around for the whole season. Ben has been off, but I got to hand it to the kid for getting out there even when his body was in a constant state of healing. Batch is a great back up, but he could not have carried the rest of the team that was just not connected this year. Our receivers have had butterfingers all season and our rookies have made some big mistakes ......but they too have been called upon to carry a big load on inexperienced shoulders this year, thanks to injuries. There's been coaching mistakes on top of all that. All in all, 7, hopefully 8 wins looks pretty darn good considering the roller coaster ride this season has been. SMC is right........come next season the slate is clean and the playing field is even again............God I love football!!! Win or lose, the Steelers are my team!!

It's been a disappointing year, but there's one thing about this season I wouldn't change for the world.....talking to Steeler fans from around the world here at SF and sharing all the highs and lows with my fellow Cincy Steeler fans!! Meanie and Flood.......you guys rock!

Yes,....but even in light of this fact most of us will continue to support this organization as we have for a VERY long time. As i'm almost certain that you will. (judging by your screen name)
