Default Re: SHOULD THE STEELERS SIT BEN?

Was listening to Chris Morternson on local Atlanta sports talk this afternoon (he lives in suburban ATL does a 15 minute segment on a local station every Friday p.m.) - Mort is not a Steelers basher but he says Ben simply is afraid of getting hit.

If that is the case (which I think has some truth to it, given how Cowher called Ben out before the Chargers game to run the d**n ball and Ben made no runs Sunday night) benching would not help and probably would hurt.

Just need to ride this slump out even if it creates a lost season. Steelers went over 20 years since having a top flight QB and do not want to give up on having one with Ben for several years.
