That's one of the few moments where Ben takes way too much time to throw, and he's hurt. Hopefully he gets up and learns his lesson.

Ben is just really dumb sometimes. Held the ball forever and wound up getting sacked. Now he's on the ground. Smart.

Again, if you HONESTLY think this coaching staff has the team ready, then you are watching a totally different game that I.

How does the coaching staff affect how a player is hit and if they lose the ball???? Seriously, do you think they are fumbling b/c Tomlin forgot to say "Oh yeah men, don't fumble tonight." >????

They have moved the ball pretty well and put a TD in w/ no FG's. Fumbles happen stop blaming the coaches for everything.

Oh shit...we might be seeing charlie! NOW we'll see how well this team is prepared

ricardisimo
12-08-2011, 08:33 PM

They hit his knees.

it could be. There was already talk from Cleveland fans strong to "injure" Ben, knock him out of the game.
But then again, thats the pathetic, piece-of-s*** fans that they have. You think Raven's fans are bad? Their nothing compared to Browns fans

The fumbles have nothing to do with the Browns running up and down the field on the supposed best D in the NFL. If they didn't suck so bad this game would be 21-7 them.

They have out passed us and have out rushed us.

This team is simply NOT PREPARED.

Thats true. The coaches can't dictate who gets hit and who executes, but they can (and should) motivate the team to look vicious and pumped out there. They instead look half-asleep.

He's great at avoiding sacks. But just by running out of the pocket your buying yourself 5 seconds. Waiting to throw another 5 is kind of dumb. Come on Ben! Please be good!

You get sick and tired of this crap after awhile - Ben holds onto the ball forever trying to make a play rather than use common sense and throw the ball away to protect himself. You get really pissed at him because he does it over and over again. Now it really came back to bite him in the a$$.

So your saying if they were better than us they would be winning 21-7. Can't argue with that. Too bad for them we are better than them, and they aren't winning. If you look at stats as a predictor of what should happen on the field you haven't been watching football long. Stats are pretty meaningless come sunday.

if his ankle was broken, he wouldnt be limping around on it with no shoe would he? He just got in the golf cart with no shoe on and on his own. Maybe no broken bones--hopefully

Yeah he could. I busted mine one time when about 1300 lbs of widow glass fell off a rack on me and trapped my leg under it. Broke the ball end off the of the tibia, left foot. I was able to hobble around enough to drive (5 speed) to the docs office.

finally, a reasonable fit, no way to Favre or anyone else, but McNabb might actually fit very well, but with Ben still limping under his own power I'm not so sure its as bad as many are fearing (or at least I'm hoping)

Fractures hurt, but my dad walks on two fractured ankles and a herniated and bulging disk in his back, and has form years.

The Steelers should be embarrassed about that half. They should have been up 21-3. Sloppy AGAIN. This is getting to be a habit for this team. They were going through the motions. Turnovers, penalties missed assignments. Sloppy, sloppy and undisciplined.

And if Ben can't come back this season, it's over anyway

If you really want to insult something, how about the lack of coaching that this team has?

Oh, sorry, I forgot my Black and Gold glasses, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT, WE ARE PREFECT

Think before you post.

Think before you start making statements like "The defense isn't showing up" So if they don't pitch a shutout every game they aren't showing up?? I suggest you take off whatever glasses make you think we have a PERFECT team if not for the ineptitude of the coaches blocking our path to PERFECTION.

I'm with you on that. Forgot about McNabb.

Favre is just a joke of an option right now, and I can't believe anyone actually would take that "option" seriously.

I'm hoping it's not as bad as it looked either...who know with an ankle though. It could be totally shattered or it could be a bad twist. No way to know till X-Rays are done.

I thinks it's either a bad sprain or a fracture. Hopefully a sprain. Iv'e had both, and iv'e walked on both. Both hurt equally, only a sprain doesn't last as long. He could get back out their if it's a sprain, but the minute he relaxes it'll act up.

Agreed. Nothing in that first half looked extremely troublesome EXCEPT the injuries to ben and pouncey. Defense gave up some yards to get a feel for the game plan as they typically do, but made the plays when they had to, as they typically do. Ben was playing excellent as were his WR's. - the turnovers, which happen...maybe not always how quickly they came for us...but otherwise it was a solid first half with ben, blah without. Now lets see if they can eek out a win here, if not...and ben is out we should start to be concerned.

About the Hines comment. Hines was a good QB at Georgia, but I would NEVER wish harm on anyone. Especially Charlie.

DanRooney
12-08-2011, 09:06 PM
Mendenhall needs to get every handoff. Our explosive receivers are pretty much neutralized due to the ancient backup QB we have. I have faith Mendy will be able to break one if he gets more touches.

Steeler4life1972
12-08-2011, 09:06 PM

ETL

Im a doctor and i dont think they would let Ben walk around with a broken ankle. When bones break it usually forms an obvious bruise because bones are so vascular and especially at the ankle where the skin is thin.

Ben probably has a sprain. I see him playing against SF.

sharkweek
12-08-2011, 09:06 PM
