Ben starting.

PRO: steelers have better chance to win; Ben shakes off some rust; we may be in the running to win division if Ravens lose to Redskins ....

CON: Ben re-injures shoulder and ribs and is out for the season.

I'm on the fence about whether or not I'd like to see DeCastro in at guard here. I mean, if he's healthy he should be playing right now.

Starks - DeCastro - Pouncey - Foster - Beachum

That line is already better than the one we had last week, I'm just not sure if I'd start Colon over DeCastro anymore. I know it's David's wrong side, but he's still a hell'uva guard and could do well at LG I assume. If not, throw Foster on the left side and put David in at RG. Either of these situations is makes a great line for Ben - especially after coming back from an injury.

Doug did a stellar job at center!

No surprise at Ben coming back! They need a special gameplan against the bolts, basically what I have been known for yelling at the TV for years annoying the family, "RUN THE FUCKIN BALL"!!!

yes he did, Legursky is a much better center than he is a guard.

You don't pound the rock when you have Roethlisberger as your starting quarterback and Jonathan Dwyer as your running back. You throw to your wide receivers who actually deserve to be starting.

Is anyone else a bit concerned with the return of BB? I listened to an interview recently by Ben and he stated how he plays through a tremendous amount of pain sometimes. It makes me wonder if he's forcing himself to come back for his teams sake when e is not fully healed. Is it worth the risk?

Yeah, it would be nice to average a little mroe than 3 yards per carry though. They could not open running lanes to save their lives.

Except when your QB is three weeks removed from having his aorta nearly punctured by one of his floating ribs....

The more pressure they can take off Ben's plate this week-- the better. Historically, he struggles a bit when returning from a major injury. Hopefully not this week.

They need to be able to run the ball. We need The Colon back and Pouncey playing where he belongs at C.

If there was any serious risk of reinjury, he wouldn't be playing. We can't run the ball like we're all asking and expecting to. We don't have a legitimate running back on this roster - period. I agree that it would be nice to run it, but I don't know if Dwyer is going to have any great success in doing so because he hasn't all year.

Agreed on Pouncey playing at C. People are acting like Colon has been playing poorly all year - he's actually played above our expectations.
