Oh my, where to start. Just now good enough to be Bradshaw's towel boy? Did you watch the first five years of TB's career?

And exactly how did the Steelers roll on without TB? They rolled to a bunch of bad to mediocre seasons in the 80s, followed by some good teams that were always shy a franchise QB the next fifteen years.

Well, I think congratulations are in order. This might possibly be the dumbest thing ever written in English. I mean, that's a pretty impressive achievement.

When this team was 6 - 3, we were absolutely rolling. You're sitting there with a straight face and telling me that the offense hasn't made drastic strides since week 1 playing in Denver? We had the number one offense on third downs until Roethlisberger went down. We had the ball for an average of 35 minutes a game - tied for second in the NFL - when he had Big Ben at the helm. After we beat the Giants, we had one of the best teams in the NFL - no question. Inexcusable losses to Tennessee and Oakland early in the season are beginning to come back and haunt us, but by midseason, we had one of the best teams in the league.

When Ben went down, things went down the tubes. Not having your franchise guy and instead, a third string quarterback, is a good way to derail any teams season. The fact that we're still in the conversation for a playoff spot shows the resilience of this team and the ability to fight through adversity.

This team has made significant strides since early in the season but shockingly, when Ben went down, it went off the rails. How about we keep the doomsday talk to a minimum until we've actually been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Maybe that's asking too much.

You make a great point; but tell me, who made the decision to keep Leftwich and Charlie Batch? Why is it that this team simply doesn't seem to be focus when they play teams of lesser talent? I'm going with the Head Coach. It is his responsibility to ensure this team is focus and ready to go. I'm curious to see if Tomlin brings back Leftwitch again next season. I've said it before, I don't think this guy has a keen eye for judging talent at all. Byron Leftwitch?

I still recall the game against Baltimore in Pittsburgh; Leftwitch takes off running, gets into the endzone, falls down, and he is injured. Give Me a (BLEEP) Break!!!! Nobody even touched this guy, he falls down, and he's injured. He's not durable at all, why is he still on the team? Somebody! Somebody please explain that to me.
