Ben is definately having a bad year, but we aren't hearing him make excuses or blaming everyone but himself. The O line isn't giving him protection, but you don't hear him using that as an excuse. He's not whining about his receivers dropping balls or his coaches not calling the right plays. Instead, Ben readily accepts the blame. This is leadership, folks. Ben WILL get out of his slump, and when he does, the additional respect that he's earned through accepting blame will make him that much better. I'm glad we have him.

Where's the excuses? What do you want, his blood???

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.)

I also believe that in time Ben will get his mind right but presently something is obviously wrong with him. His decison making has been horrible for the better part of the season, he's not seeing, or choosing not to throw to, open receivers that are crossing directly in front of him and instead he's choosing to scramble around or throw the deep interception.

To me the most telling sign that Ben has a neurological problem is his use of the wrist band. I don't know if any of you have noticed but Ben is checking his wrist band as often as he did during his rookie season. It seems as though he's studying that wrist band during every play call. He didn't use it near as often last season. I truly believe that he's suffering from a moderate case of amnesia.

Yeah, thats a fine line. I agree, but right now he does kinda suck. ( Dont get me wrong I love the guy.) But, The line comes between whats best for Ben, & whats best for the rest of the team. Although, some think the season is ALREADY over. Then there is no crystal ball, & Batch might NOT save us. I do believe Ben will be in Pittsburgh for years, & SHOULD be, but for this season,...?? - Glad the choice isn't up to me.

The Raiders caught NINE passes. Ben threw four of them. I'm sure as hell hope he blamed himself!

Wow...you're perceptive. Now what's crybaby Palmer's excuse.

Forget it....I don't really care about Palmer or the Bungles. This is a Steeler forum for Steeler fans and respectful opponents. Get it?? Steeler fans........and the other one doesn't describe you.

i think they should have sat ben for not wanting to risk a severe concussion against the raiders. but if they are going to play him then they cant back after half way through a bad game and pull. that would show no confidence to ben and set him back even more. you have to show confidence in a quarterback to get the job done even after mistakes.
