If he can play, let him. Our QB situation is dire.
Dr. said it's more about pain tolerance than risking serious injury. So if he can go he should.
This isn't last year, where we were jockying for position. If we lose this + 1 more to Cincy we could be out, then we'd have saved him for nothing.

Of course if he can't make the throws and is in too much pain sit him. But Ben at 75% is better than any option we currently have. Baltimore can be beaten with Ben. They didn't show much in our game. I expect them to play better. But our offense is anemic without Ben and was very good with him.

If it's one thing the Cleveland loss did, it invalidated the Baltimore win against us. It showed them to be the fraud they are. They are a decent team, but are not up to the caliber of last years team. They missed their opportunity last year. They will go quietly in the playoffs. There isn't any team in the NFL we could have beaten with our offense the last 2 weeks.

Ben Roethlisberger.


Your turn!
Right....

First, it was Ngata. (might check your facts before you try to blast someone)

Second, it was through the facemask with his wrist (that fact thing again)

Third, if you think that Ngata is that accurate to be coming off a block with his left arm being held back, swing with his left arm and land a perfect shot through the eye section of his facemask while wrapping him up with his right hand and sacking him, then yes.... it was deliberate.

Your turn!

You have that excuse rehearsed and ready go, do you? You do case studies on where all the lineman's hands accidentally end up on every play?

I'm afraid that if Ben gets hurt further the season is over but if the Steelers lose the season will be very close to lost too. Ben is the franchise QB and the Steeler orginization knows they need him healthy to remain competitive, what puzzles me is as injury prone as Ben is the Steelers have NO backup worthy of filling in while Ben is injured.

LOL. Do you know what forum you're on? My dog takes dumps that are more meaningful than the insults of Ravens fans. But by all means, enjoy the remainder of your goodwill tour.

Nope. Just a TV and 20/20 vision.
