As for being a slow starter, that is what it is...but I believe Ben had the highest QB Efficiency Rating in the 4th quarter in the league last year...if you want your QB hot, better in the 4th than in the 1st...

Alright he stunk up the preseason royally but what does that mean? Nothing. Look at the guys win/loss record in the NFL and in college. Those numbers (the meaningful #'s) mean a lot to me the preseason is working out kinks in players and reviewing rookies and on the bubble players to see if they will be with the team before the season starts. Ben will be fine and we will keep winning.

Like many of you had said Heath has not been used enough in the preseason which scares me a little bit. But the Steelers will find away to use Miller in the redzone. The reason why he is not starting imo is because we are a run first team and Tuman is a great blocker.

i think heath will be starting by week 5 or 6, they are just keeping tuman as the starter till heath get more familiar with the play book and so he can get used to how meaningful nfl games flow and how fast they really are.

I agree that its only pre season and all that ,but he has been getting alot of air under his balls. If he's going to throw an incompletion I'd rather it be a one hopper ala Kordell. They're much harder to intercept. As much as I hate to say it I think he's really going to miss Plax.

It's wierd, Roethlisberger has bad stats in preseason but the second string won almsot all the games and people don't think they're going anywhere because of it. On the other hand the Colts went 0/5 in the preseason and they're getting superbowl predictions? It may not mean the starters were in, but that means your second string can't get it done, where as all the steelers have shown was that their second string can win games. It may not mean anything, but when injuries start popping up it should show. People have too many predictions from the preseason, I can't wait until the season starts. I agree CCSH about the bad throws, the kind that remind me of Neil O'donnell. I believe he just needs to play more with the guys he has, and get used to the changes made.

it's just ppl hating on us. i hear all the same crap about the spurs, they are similar in ways, they both rely on defense and don't have flashy players or score a shitload of points, so the media always hates on them because they ain't marketable. i just don't see how winning games ain't marketable. but like with my spurs, all them haters will have a stupid look on their faces when the steelers are celebrating a championship.
