Default All these ditch Ben threads

What is wrong with you people! This kid is the best QB we've had since Bradshaw and you even b*tched and moaned about him even though he helped to win 4 Super Bowls. How 'bout some complaining about Wallace not being able to catch suddenly. Was never anything better than the "One Trick Pony" tag that Tomlin gave him. How about all of the injuries this team has endured. How about Haley's horrible play calling. How about our "35 yard a pop" punter. All you "fans" will be right back on the bandwagon when Ben gets us back to the play-offs. I'm p*ssed about this season too. But Ben is one of the last guys who should be getting the blame for this mess. Until he got hurt he was an MVP candidate. He's our guy. He got us two new trophies. Cut him some slack.

Welcome to Steelers Fever, Stillers!

Read through this forum. All the things you are wondering why some Steelers fans aren't complaining about are here because they have been.

Anyone who possibly thinks that we're better off without Ben should be required to turn in their terrible towel immediately. It drives me nuts reading some of the stuff on this board.

That's not good enough. Some fans won't be happy until we draft the first player in history that cannot NOT throw a TD pass. They want the player that even if he tries to intentionally throw an interception because he wants to not throw a touchdown for once in his life, it still somehow becomes a touchdown for his team.

My point was a non Ben bashing thread instead of a thread against Ben. Apparently, that was beyond your understanding.

Ben deserves the credit when the Steelers win and the blame when they lose.

Period.

Ben is not elite.

If Ben is the reason the Steelers won superbowls then he is the reason the Steelers have failed to win superbowls.

You can not have it both ways.

Or has the Steelers top 5 defense every year been holding Ben's offense back?

This is worse than it was in the 2010 offseason. At least then there was a legitimate reason for some to want him off the team. Now it's just ridiculous.

Defense always wins championships, Ben does his part on offense & yes he is a Elite QB cause if everyone can call Eli "ELITE" then Ben has to be "ELITE" since he is a better then Eli

If posters want to give Ben credit for the teams winning, then they better be ready to hold him to a little more responsibility for when they lose. When the Steelers win, it's because of Ben. When the Steelers lose, it's someone else's fault.

You can't have it that way. Ben deserves a lion's share of the blame for 2012. We'll see what he does for 2013 in beyond.

This season went down the crapper because Ben wanted to go sandlot, just like last year. His irresponsibility is the reason why the team is packing up their lockers and golf bags.
