I don't believe that SF is is so good that Batch or Dixon couldn't have handled them.
But playing Ben made them look a whole lot better and probably made Ben's leg a whole lot worse.
The main thing that would bother me if I were a Steeler fan is that he set himself up to be out for the season. Then what are you going to do? I realize how nice it would be to win the division, get home field and all that but the fact that he was left in for the whole game as bad as it was going for him. It was so obvoius watching him hobble around that he was in no shape to be productive. You already had a playoff berth locked up. Luckily it looks like he didn't injure himself any worse.
