While Ben has put up decent numbers since returning and we are 3-1 with him back, I still want to see more rhythm and consistency with the entire offense for 60 minutes. IMHO Ben and the offense still has a lot of work to do.

Take the reins off Ben.

Run over them and burn them deep at the same time.

Pound the shit out of those Pasties.....can I ever relax?

I want a Steelers victory formation at the end of this game.

Make it so.

Well Big Ben after coming back. Looks like he hasn't lost a step. As despite losing one game. He is back!
Easter 2015!

I agree.... with arians still at the helm we will never be consistent and have not seen a consistent game from our O all year!!! He has to go after this year or our O will continue to struggle. I think Ben's playing style over the years has been out of necessity because of arians play calling...just my opinion!

Default Re: How's Ben doing?

So here it is, after 4 games back how do you think Ben's doing?
Ok. But it's not all on him. The offense doesn't seem to be in sync.

Is he where you want him to be at this point?
No. I'd like to see better ball security and decision making from a veteran player. It looks like he's on his way to Brett Favre-dom when it comes to that.

Is he living up to your expectations?
No. I think Ben is capable of being the best in the league and one of the all-time greats.

Do you think the offensive line issues will limit his effectiveness?
It has to doesn't it? Without a doubt any QB will be hamstrung by an ineffective offensive line. Ben will have to make quicker reads and Arians will have to adjust his play-calling.

Are the receivers an issue?
Yes. A few times this year they have appeared to run the wrong route or responded poorly to a hot read. You can't give away a Super Bowl MVP and expect no ramifications whatsoever. The sooner they drop El on the depth chart, the better.

Will Ben and Heath find last year's rythm before the season's out?
Heath's game has digressed. He was once surprisingly sure-handed. In most recent history, he has been anything but. Heath needs to realize that he hasn't arrived just yet and that he still needs to improve all facets of his game.

Are we capable of being an elite offense this year?
No. The pieces aren't in place. They have issues with the OC (who I must give some credit to for throwing more on 1st down last game). Also, the QB doesn't respect the ball and the receivers aren't quick enough. Wallace still needs to improve his route running as well. They need to combine Mendy's finesse with a more bruising runner to mix it up. Their red zone offense is also below average. They struggle with consistency to sustain drives as well. The offense relies too heavily on the "big play". They need to concentrate on moving the chains and executing with greater precision.
