The rest of the league should be scared at that thought...I hope he gives defensive cordinators a headach...

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

In hindsight... Last year might have been the best thing that could have happened to this franchise.

Ben seems to have his head in the books and on the field now. Other players are down in Florida working out together (which I don't mind. IF they can work out better away from Pittsburgh, then so be it. I would probably be one of those as well. I seem to always need a change of scenery every so often). You can bet receivers and Ben are getting on the same page NOW.

This may be a great year!

We know Ben has the tools and intangibles to be a special QB in Pittsburgh let alone the league. Even during last year's crappy season he showed signs of brilliance. Of course, no QB is going to be great if he's on his back all the time. The OL has to be fixed.

I want Ben to stick it to the ****y Ravens and Bengals fans who say he's no good after one year. They're making me sick.

There was thus nugget buried in the article from Jason Taylor:


As Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor, a Pittsburgh native who is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, told me Wednesday, "They've got a mess up there. They've got a new coach, players questioning whether he should be there. He's got to find a way to demand some respect. I don't know what to expect, to be honest."


No context for how Taylor has any pertinent insights on the Steelers (unless he has been talking to his new teammate) but FWIW the Dolphins are not exactly in Indy's or New England's class when it comes to having a stable operation - pot, meet kettle.

If anything, Mr. Taylor should keep his mouth shut and keep his opinions on other teams out of the media. He doesn't have to look far to see an organizational mess. He can look at his own team, especially with the recent fiascos as of late. At least the Steelers organization had some success lately.

Ben is my favorite player in the league, I'm glad to see him taking this seriously. He'll be back big this year.

IMO, BR has failed to improve at all since coming to the NFL. his progress has been stagnant and that is because of whisenhunt and whipple not pushing him. he looked pretty healthy last year to me. we can all cling to that excuse as to why he played so poorly. but i saw the same passes and mistakes last year as i did the seasons prior. only this time he wasn't so lucky.

the guy needs to stop partying and realize he has a long way to go to be a successful QB rather than one who is told not to make mistakes.
