Not really...

Ben had to step aside, step up, run, step back, etc. etc. etc. WAY too many times.

he got hit a couple of times because he held on to the ball too long and you cant expect the o-line to hold their blocks too long but i think we all expect them to atleast hold them for more than 2 seconds! they need to step it up from here on out

Should hold it for at least 3 seconds.

If is wasn't for Ben being very good at breaking tackles and giving himself time we would be in a worse situation. I love that he can do that def. last night when Denver was all over our O-line who had a terrible game. Ben did what he could and the one pick was not his fault and he brought us back, relied on the denfense, but the mistakes earlier in the game hurt us!

Hmm...our last drive reminded me of Maddox, when we're down at the last few minutes. We scored 8 points at the end of the drive and won in the playoff against BROWNS....I think Maddox managed the clock well until the last few seocnds, so the opp (motored by Arians back then) wouldn't have enough time to come back for a score....

On a night where our defense did not play up to par and, we did have three turnovers we still almost won the game. Ben had us right there at the end and, I think the play calling in the first half cost us the most. I know Champ is not playing so we throw more like the 03 steelers. It is too easy to seat here and complain about it so, Sunday it is all about the bungals. We need to forget the last game and play steelers football which is a balanced attack. If our o line does their job Ben has showed he is a very effective QB. It is not time too push the panic button we just need to regroup and, come out and crush the bungals! Plus Willie almost broke two or three of the runs big time we must show more faith in our ground game.
Give Ben some credit here I know two picks and a fumble but, one of the picks was tipped. It seems to me we our the only team that can't have turnovers and win. Look at the Dallas - Bills game 5 int's for Romo and they still win. If was not for Ben making plays in the second half that game could have been real ugly. I know it was bad enough and, this week we stop the bleeding and get back to steeler football.

I don't care whoi the QB is. If Brady faced the pressue Ben does he would be very average. Ben handles it great and his escapeability is a big plus with the way the line is playing.
