I was supportive of the rooneys decision to not throw the bank at faneca. Upon further review it should have been done. You need to invest your 100 million dollar qb. I hope the steeers do everything they can in the offseason to upgrade the line. Because at this rate ben wont see the end of his contract

Faneca was on board for the O-Line problems in 2006 and 2007.

He wouldn't have helped right now.

The line was fine. Ben did not produce. Simple as that.

Ben was only sacked like what? One time? And it didn't seem like he was holding the ball too long.

It was Ben's fault, not the lines.

Quote from Ben after his meeting with Tomlin lats week "You know what? I have played sub-par football to date," Roethlisberger said. "It's time for that to change and it will change. I think as my performance changes, I think you'll see some changes in the offense because we'll be clicking more, we'll be making more completions and things will happen nice." Maybe Tomlin better have another meeting, maybe he could possibly include Lefty, lol

Keep beating the horse folks. It's been dead for awhile. :coffee:

Yeah, he did seem to be getting rid of the ball quicker, but he still made several bad decisions.

I thought the O-line did a pretty good job of protecting Ben. Not great, but adequete enough. Ben didn't take advantage, and it cost us.



As for everyone spouting about Ben's "I Will Do Better" statement, he DID take a step in the right direction, in the form of quicker passes, utilizing Moore out of the backfield and throwing more quick slants. UNFORTUNATELY, he also made some bad decisions that I think were affected by his battered body.

Everyone is responsible for it.

The OL today played fine and they're certainly not responsible for Ben's 2 picks. Our 100 million QB lost the game alone.That's the 2 this season after the Giants.
I don't believe Ben's worth all the hype surrounding him and he's definitely not a Brady or a Manning caliber. Sorry guys but that's what I think.

yeah.. nevermind the fact he has been hit on over 35% of the plays this year...

i think it's pretty sad that we have the idea that "well, if ben doesn't get beat up then the o-line played decently..."

whatever happened to our running game? we saw what happened today when they have to throw the ball to win...they're just not good enough.

the o-line has to play better...pass blocking is only HALF of their job.

I agree. Nevermind the fact that more had 24 attempts for 57 yards. But the only thing that matters is ben didnt get his head ripped off

It's a good start. But I agree there's more to it than that.

He also doesn't have the time they have to survey the field. During the Eagles game they had a graphic about that. Brady had something like 6 seconds on average before he was contacted, Ben had 2.5 :banging:

Maybe you could shrink your sig a bit? Skews all the posts. 400 px is a good width.
