I think he will start....but, I wouldn't be surprised to see Leftwich in the second half.

If we are up by a couple touchdowns, then I see Byron coming in. . . or if there is some SERIOUS problems, I see Byron coming in. outside of those two, I doubt Ben would be in.

Knowing Ben's past.. He's gonna tell everyone he's fine regardless of how he ACTUALLY feels. This is the side of Ben I'm disliking up to this point.. I hope he can make the right TEAM decision weather to play or not. He's decided poorly that he was fine and dandy to play in the past after an injury and he clearly was not supposed to be on the field. For the love of God PLEASE BEN!! Don't let ego make this decision. If Ben tells coach he's fine .. coach is gonna play him.. I think he in some ways has steered the boat even Cowers last year. Lets hope Tomlinson can see the truth if he's not up to the challenge.. Either way it's gonna be a sweet ass game .. Can't get much closer of a game than 11-10.. controversy or not it was a tight game all night. Look forward to another brawl.

and if ben says i am not fine, then everyone will be ripping on him saying he is wimpy. its a no win situation. if he tells tomlin that he is fine, then its up to tomlin and the coaching/medical staff to determine if he is well enough to play. i think if tomlin thinks he isnt 100% he(tomlin) has no qualms about telling him you are the backup. you play to win the game, and if that means benching your star qb, then so beit. if they lose because tomlin played ben and he wasnt 100%, it will be on tomlin, not ben.. so i think tomlin will look out for the team.

??? I want my QB to WANT to play and not wimp out...

It's up to the coach to decide if he's gonna hurt the team or not.

yeah, me neither. we should be up by 4 td's by then and steelers traditionally give their back up plenty of mop up time.

but in the case of the ravens game last year, this usually prevents ben from setting league records.

the only record we want is the first team to 6 lombardis... individual records dont matter if you put the team first.
