Default Today, I'm relieved Ben played.

I said last night that Ben shouldn't have played. However it was great that he did. Ben needed game action, and he played at his lowest possible health level. If he can go through that and come out ok, he can go through anything. The bengals game will be completely different, and our offense will be infinitely better.

With our offense better, our defense will dominate again, and get time of posession back. I'm actually feeling like that game was a blessing in disguise, maybe we needed to lose that game and get us back to what made us champions !

Yep I agree with you and I know i've said it before but, we needed that. We needed to loose to get the crap smacked out of us to figure out what we're doing right and wrong this season. I think our offense will play a much better game next sunday. We need to tweek our offense out cause it is different than it was last year. Hopefully we can get Davenport in on sunday also.

I hope our defenese plays the same next week as they did this week.

You guys are definitely looking at the glass being half full. It was a terrible loss becuase if our offense had any imagination we could have won that game. Our defense played great but when your total offense can only get a 100 and some yards, you know you're in trouble. Why the hell is Staley on the sidelines and in sweats?!!! I really thought this would be his year. Yesterday was a great example why it took Cowher 14 years to get a Super Bowl ring.

Staley is on the sidelines because he is fat and out of shape. I wouldn't put the blame on Cowher. Players still need to execute the game plan. Cowher's not out there dropping passes.

On a positive note, it was great to see Ben start the game and get all the playing time. Every time he starts I feel fortunate that he is still around.

Ben Definantly needed playing time. If he didn't play at all weeks 1-3 I wouldn't feel too comfrortable. If we would need him in the long term it wouldn't look to good if he didn't get any time as he did last night.

I am glad he played because in the game he knocked off the rust.I'd rather have Jax help him knock it off than a Cincinatti team that has a score to settle and will probally be pushing the limits of roughing the passer next week.

Look for flags to fly early to keep the Bengals-Steelers game under control. As seen with last night's flag when Keisel rolled into Leftwich, the refs are not going to tolerate any head (or knee) hunting on Sunday against Carson or Ben (especially after the grief the league took on the Trent Green hit in the KC-Bengals game)

Yep.....the majority of Steeler fans are optimistic.....you bet we are!!!

Do you think that as Bill Cowher was holding that Lombardi trophy over his head last February that any one of us cared about the 5 losses???????? Steeler fans are used to the roller coaster ride.......the whole dang league wrote us off last December and WE believed!! It made the ultimate prize so much sweeter!!!!!!!

God, thank you .. so sick of people blaming cowher for every little thing... players do get paid for something ya know .. they are the ones out there on the field actually suppose to make things work. Is funny to me when Willie rips off a huge run or Ben makes a great pass ... you hear, oh WHIZ is the best thing since sliced bread and how great the players are .. but when they dont make tackles, make horrible throws, or our line gets knocked backwards ... then somehow Cowher is the one out there playing the game for them.
Shuddup already on the Cowher bashing.
