I want Ben at 100% (not 90%) when he takes the field again. Same with Antonio.
This.

I agree: weather the storm of having no BB, but have him back for the play-offs.

Aside from INDY, the next team is SD... who only has 4 wins (then MIA, who also has only four wins). Ergo, a loss or two will not keep PITT out of the play-offs... but, NO BB for the play-offs would essentially end the season.

Rest, rest, lose, lose... get into the play-offs with a healthy BB... win #7.

Everyone DOES realize that Ben wasn't expected to play anyway due to the birth of his child, right? I don't see him playing. Throw in a Leftwich who's practiced all week and we'll be just fine.

That's only if his wife happens to go into labor on that day. I haven't seen anything saying he will miss X number of games after the birth. I've just seen where he said he would miss a game if she was in labor on game day. So it's not like he has it penciled in on the game day that she will be induced.

Ummmmm....you did watch the same game we all did last night....right?...

Sandwich is not a good QB and was about as useful as a one legged midget in a butt kicking competition. He was terrible. Hell the freaking towel boy would have been a better QB. And can someone tell me why when he took Bens spot did they keep running the ball down the middle? Even a blind man could see it wasn't working.

Ben was 9 for 18 and 84 yards. Lefty was 7 for 14 and 73 yards. Both QB's were struggling, But Lefty did hold his own, and nearly matched Ben's numbers for the night.

You'll eat your words if he plays next Sunday. I have the utmost confidence is Leftwich when he at least has an opportunity to practice. He's a good quarterback, and always has been. You do realize that BOTH Ben AND Lefty only completed 50%, right? I guess that towel boy is better than Ben, too!

I hope I do eat my words but something inside tells me without Ben the outcome of next week's game is looking grim.

Quite frankly that would be awesome bragging rights for us as Steelers fans. We could slam the Ravens with "yours so bad that even our worst is better then you" or something crazy like that.
