Will not bench Ben now - That bridge was crossed when they played him today - if you will not bench a QB after a concussion there is no excuse to bench him now. However, I unfortunately see another injury coming up - it as if this team in general and Ben in particular sold its soul to win last year.

I do think it is time to play McFadden, keep sitting Simmons, play Chukky at center and start giving Anthony Smith some PT at safety - thos season is over

We are down... but not out. We still play the browns twice. We need to start which ever qb gives us the best chance to win next sunday... if its batch, then its batch... if its ben, then play him!

I still say he shouldn't have started. He didn't seem ready. I say start Batch. Give ben time to heal.

Exactly, I realize it was an entirely different offense back then but what the hell ever happened to our goal line QB draw play?

Someone in the sports bar today said that the league complained to the Steelers for letting Ben play so soon .. said that they're going to have a rule in the future that you must sit 2 weeks minimum after a concussion...

dont know if thats true or not .. but its a good idea ..

Why the f*** didn't they pull Ben out after INT #2?! Do all our coaches have their heads up their asses?
