Screw this year! I just don't care anymore! We're obviously not meant to do it this season. My focus is long term. Do what is best for the team's next season.

No reason to be concerned. Those were just some big bodies crashing his way. I don't think the accident made him any more susceptible to concusions. The guy just got hit by professional football players who hit and tackle very hard.

I am sure that Cowher will sit him during the Oakland game. In my mind Oakland is a game we should win, and Cowher will want Big Ben healthy for the rest of the season.

If you think it's time to write off the entire season because of a 2-4 start, you don't have too much faith in the reseliency of our Steelers. We should get Joey Porter back soon, and Big Ben will heal fast(hopefully). So we are down, but not out yet, until the final score of the final game of our season shows, we are never out of anything.

Right but after one concussion you are more suceptable to more concussions, especially when you are getting hit by Professional football players who hit and tackle very hard.

Just Some Examples:
1. Steve Young
2. Eric Lindross
3. Wayne Crabet
4. troy Aikman
5. Merriel Hodge- Early Retirment


Football players who have suffered one Concussion, are 3 times more likely, than non Concussed players to get a second concussion in the same season.
This is called post concussed Syndrome...

We are still the best team in the AFC North (and in all of Football IMO)

3. Who is the best team in the AFC North?

Allen: It seems strange right now to say this, but the best team in the AFC North is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ignore for a moment that they lost in overtime against the Falcons and think about what this offense has done the past two weeks. They've completely dominated two good defenses with two different quarterbacks. The running game looks refreshed and Ben Roethlisberger and Charlie Batch both have an excellent grasp of this offense and are executing their play calls. This team would beat the Bengals and Ravens with Batch or Roethlisberger leading the way.


Hoge: It's the Steelers in a landslide. They have an excellent blend of offense and defense and are starting to look like the Steelers from last year. This team will be hard to beat down the stretch, even if Roethlisberger has to miss time. Backup quarterback Charlie Batch is more than capable of winning games.


Salisbury: Despite losing Sunday to the Falcons, the Steelers are back and they have fewer questions surrounding them than any other team in the AFC North. The Ravens have trouble moving the ball on offense and even with a good defense, you have to put points on the board in this division. The Bengals are having offensive line issues that have slowed their explosive offense. Cleveland just isn't ready. That leaves the Steelers, who have the right combination of offensive and defensive excellence to contend.
