I agree.. Its actually a shame what he is going through and at this point in the season its harder to just go ahead and sit him... All those great quarters Ben has had makes it hard to, but you have to assume his health is the reason for the shitty play.. This isnt the ben you all know and love

I have complete faith that Ben will be the quarterback we saw take the Steelers on that historic run to the SuperBowl last year again.....it just might not be this year. I've said all along it may take a full year for him to recover completely from the motorcycle accident. You can't bench him for the whole year.........you just have to let him play out the kinks and continue to build for the future.

Yep, I'm as big of a Steelers fan as thay come, But I realize that Ben has gone thru a lot of poop to totally repeat last season. Just like the people that think Batch should start. If Chuck comes in & wins, great! But you have to realize HE hasn't had his melon beat in the way Ben has. This will all take time. Until then, I will continue to shout obcenities & throw things at the tv.

yep third year. And those first two were no fluke. I'll stick with Ben through the tough times. He deserves it. No Ben, no SuperBowl XL.......our Ben is still in there......he's just a bit beat up right now. I have no explanation for the rest of them.

He damn well better take the blame after a performance like that.

^^Dude c'mon seriousley no one else in this thread has bashed Ben that horribly. We dont know what's going through Ben's head and we probably never will. Like I said he's going through a rough time and the fans should stick behind him and keep the faith that Ben is a great athlete and just needs to get things together. He'll be fine eventually and I think the majority of the fans know that. The Steelers dont want Bens self esteem to be shot with him sitting on the bench thinking "I suck" that wouldnt be good for him. (And FYI for anyone who thinks it I'm not a "Ben Groupie", I've watched Ben from his college days and therefore I am a Ben fan.)
