Ding, ding, ding - we have a winner! Ben is our QB and you stick with him- period.

It's fun feeding this troll, though. The more you feed "it", the weaker it becomes and the softballs it continues to lob are always a guaranteed 4 bagger!

Too funny X T! (But good!)

That's why I never respond to those kinds of goads from trolls--firstly, they make little to no sense. Secondly, the more people answer them, the more they "think" they have to say, and then they just get so ridiculous it's laughable--other times I just sit here and shake my head and think "You've GOT to be kiddin me". They TRULY are not worth my time.

Still amazes me what the Green Eyed Monster does to [some] people though...

Benching Ben might just be the fastest way to demoralize him for the entire season, and possibly jeapordize his career. We all know he's a big, tough guy, but when you carry the weight of the defending champions on your shoulders and you know that you're letting them down (and believe me, he has to know he's letting them down)... all I can picture in my head is Maddox last year, trying desperately not to fail the team in a time of need but just not being able to pull through. It's not all skill level.

Unless things start to get really bad, he definitely needs to be supported and challenged. We need to keep pressing him, but we can't let him falter. Tough love I think describes my opinion fairly well. :D

Nope on the benching part. Ben will come around. I can't believe how fast people want to throw this guy under the bus. Give me a fricking break.

Benching Ben would definately be the worst thing to do at this time. A QB's confidence is the only thing that gets and keeps him going. He needs to get this back ont rack and by being benched his confidence would be 0. I dont want to hear this any longer, please remember who the Steelers beat with batch, yes they were supposed to be amazing, but they are having a harder time than we are right now. not taking away anything owed to batch for a great performance, but we gotta stick with ben and instead of raising this question we need to be patting him on the back and saying get back in there kid, you'll make the throw next time.

HELL NO. As far as I'm concerned we sink or swim with Ben this year.

Just like a toddler on a bike. You fall. You get up and do it until you get it right.

In Ben's case...would you please just freakin' bolt out of the pocket downfield once in awhile. Either way you are going to get hit.

The guy who may need to sit is Max Starks if we had any depth.
