No way, didn't you see the linebacker on the 3 yard line mirroring his jukes?

Yeah, you play the guy. He threw 4 picks, but the loss is a team loss. The O line is playing really awful right now; we have to be able to show that we can consistently run the ball for first downs or the passing game won't ever open up. And it wasn't on Parker; there were NO holes.

I go back to that thread about the Steelers having the best O line in the NFL; whoever wrote that wasn't watching the games.

At this point, you really don't have a choice - you have to let him play the rest of the season, barring another injury, God forbid. Someone said that the decision was made to put him in no matter what when he took the field tonight, and they're right. It's too late to go back now.

Ben is my guy, but I do think Batch should have played today. Ben's head needed another week to heal from getting knocked the **** out.

Big Time! Big Ben is not healed up enough to the point where he is mentally ready. He wasn't there. I think start Batch. Just to give him time to heal at least.

Last week I was saying, SAVE BEN. START BATCH. Mostly for medical/psychological reasons.

Now, I'm saying: BATCH OR BUST. Charlie could be just the shot in the arm this team needs right now. Maybe we could get the message to Cowher, etc by having Steeler Nation put up signs in their windows and on their cars everywhere. Let's get another shot to the Superbowl with a good team (even if far from perfect).

BATCH OR BUST.

The official party line from the Steelers (Cowher and players) is that Ben simply had a horrible game and was physically ready to play.

I have my doubts about that but, if so, it raises its own questions about his horrible decision making after he appeared to have found himself in teh atlanta and KC games.

It appears Ben will be playing until he gets hurt again. This season now becomes a building experience for next year (and hopefully ruining the Ravens season by beating them twice). Part of that should involve getting Ben back to moving out of the pocket and occassionally running with the ball - if the fear is he will get hit if he returns to his 2004-05 style then he should sit.
