Default Re: Ben is going to be fine

Yes, Ben will be fine but he should realize that he isnt invincible and taking a week off versus the Raiders would help him against the Broncos at home. I blame the coaching staff for not stepping up and making him the back up yesterday. Now he has a crappy game to think about all week and then go against a pissed off Denver team.

As a pro athlete Ben is going to play unless the coaches sit him.

It wouldbe one thing if the only back-up was St. Pierre, but to feel a need to play Ben with the back-up performances Batch has turned in is inexplicable.

This team still has the talent to win as long as the QB does not screw it up. Due to his injuries, Ben is not capabale of doing that at the moment. It is the coaches' fault for not recognizing/admitting Ben is hurt and playing Batch.

Ben will be fine in 2007 unless he gets hurt again or his probelms this year get in his head for future years.

Ben has needed a rest since the middle of the season LAST YEAR. Just look at his injuries since then, two leg injuries, 2 thumb injuries (even though one was the lucky broke thumb that won them one for the thumb), two concussions, and an appendix removal. He should have sat out the Jax game, maybe even the Cincy game, but definately the Raiders game. I am praying that Ben is our guy for the next 10+ years, I know he's the future of this team, but I think he has made some bad moves and the coaches(Cowher) have made even worse moves. Chuck Noll used to sit Bradshaw all the time and he knew what he was doing. Cowher is just worried somebody will start crying like Kordell Stewart did.

Give Ben a good rest, he needs it. Maybe we should look at his health for next season instead of trying to force wins this season and jeapordize his health all together. Just cause you have a bad season now, doesn't meen it's all over. The Steelers will be here forever and Ben is our guy!

It's common knowledge that his first game back after being hurt, he flat out sucks. This was true against Indy and the Ravens last year, and it's true this year.

The guy is AMAZING when he's not thrown in after being hurt. It's just the way it works. He'll be lights out crazy good next week. Just watch.

I think ben needs a break. He was in a motor cycle accident, had his appendix taken out, and had a coma. His body has got to be tired, I mean like super worn out. Pull him out for a game or two, then he can come back refreshed and ready to play. Until that happens, he's still gonna have problems. Personally I think that Cowher is not doing his job. Even if they want to play him fine, but pull him out about half way through the 3rd quarter and let him take a breather, then put him back in during the 4th.

Pull him but screw resting...make him practice reading defenses and such for two weeks straight! Make him and the quarterbacks coach be with each other 24/7!

Bandwagon fans dont think they way a real steeler fan does because they do not remember Bens first year because they were not fans until they won the superbowl

He is not going to be fine....Unless you give hime 2 or 3 more weapons around him....He is an average QB that happened to get lucky and have a "great team" around him the last two years....Now that he has lost Randle El and Bettis he will continue to struggle....No excuses....

Yea Randle El was such a great WR. You tool Randle El only had 35 catches and 1 TD as a WR last year. Do some ****ing research before posting your stupid ass shit.
