If you can pencil Ben in next year for a 3-1 TD to Int ratio I'll take it in a minute.

No one is 100% at the end of a football season, and NO ONE is going to recover from a shoulder injury in three weeks. Speculation was that Ben would be healed fully by the end of the season, but that isn't exactly how it works when your STILL PLAYING FOOTBALL.

His shoulder will need to heal for the majority of the playoffs, and probably won't be 100% by the time the Pro Bowl comes around.

some of the reactions are amazing around here. ben had a few bad games and suddenly he is an idiot who cant play the game. before the injury he was having a career year. the offense was starting to pick up, haleys game plan was working well.

Exactly. Steeler fans are spoiled brats. People really need to just accept the fact that the Steelers will not win the SB every year.

They won't accept it, though.

Just bitch and moan for 200+ days until the new season starts, and until then, we'll have to listen to how Ben is bad QB and hopefully, just HOPEFULLY, the sound of their bitching will be muffled by Brady, Manning, Rodgers and Brees' balls in their mouths.

Hopefully.

I am disgusted by all these comments by 'true fans"

Ben will come back and unleash hell just as soon as he's done playing with the baby.

I knew he was hurt. He came back too soon as usual. This is getting old. The FO needs to address this. If he gets hurt next year, which chances are he will, they need to sit him. A week beyond the point at which he is cleared to return and wants to.

Ben playing injured is costing us games, and in this case, possible runs to the SB. We need a steady OL, and a dependable, young and capable QB. Anything else and we will be saying the same thing next year.

Ben's arm/shoulder didn't seem to be bothering him too much when he was waving it around yelling, "Cut!"

No, the issue isn't injury. You wanted to prove you were smarter than everyone, including "Know-Nothing" Haley and it ended up biting you in the ass.

His shoulder looked alright forcing the ball to a triple-covered Mike Wallace in Dallas resulting in losing the game, or misfiring down the field all over the place against Cincinnati. His athleticism looked okay getting happy feet against San Diego.
I think his brain was hurt.
