Ben did play today he took what the defense gave him. Just too many flags my god it seem like we were going to lose that game somehow. Ben remained calm and put us in position to win. I don't Lefty could have done any better. Ben is our guy and, please do not compare him to Kordell. Kordell made more bone head throws than I can count.

He played much smarter today. Hopefully, the shoulder will improve enough he can throw some longer passes when he needs to. It's too bad so much of his progress was taken away by penalties. That must really frustrate him.

There are still quite a few games left. And possibly the playoffs,.....

IMO there are no such thing as "Ben Haters",...just simply those whom stand for THE STEELERS and Ben's groupies whom will make excuses for and or coddle him to the bitter end. But this is nothing new,..it was the same case with Brister and Tinkerbell (Kordell)

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

Don't remember many 31-41 for 300+ kinds of games for Kordell - I remember a lot of 7-25 for 60-70 yards with 3-4 picks kinds of games for him, though....

Finally used what we had... good receivers..

Ward is finally getting the ball more the past few games and looking good..

I think our o line did pretty good today as well, there were times when ben had all day to throw, which usually doesnt happen.

nice to see willie get things goin too..

good win, now lets keep it consistant.

Glad to see a lot more short, quick passes. The success of these will force opposing defenses to be more honest and not sell out with the blitz.

Let Ben and the WRs/TEs/RBs dink and dunk the ball down the field until someone can stop it. Hopefully that will open up the deep passing game as defenses use a less aggressive pass rush.
