In the first half of games Ben did have a very big part in the Steelers offense. The Steelers built leads and let the running game take over in the 2nd of games. Does this mean Ben was a finished product as a QB. Hell no it doesn't. But Ben did play well last year in paticular when the running game wasn't always there. Look at the playoffs last year. The running game stunk for the most part and Ben played well enough for the Steelers to win.

This season was just doomed from the start and we all should of known this when Ben had his accident. You keep saying injuries havn't effected his plays. Well hell yes they have. He is a beat up young man right now. His body has been through alot and now he has had a second concussion. I would like see alot of QB's go out there and play with all the shit that has happened to Ben the past few months.

If Ben stays healthy in 2007. Then we will say how good of a player he really is.

Very true, but we also had great rushing numbers in those 1st halfs. The running game dictated the coverages for Ben.
