dont underestimate batch. weve never really seen him play with the starters and when he has he does reasonably well. he sacrificed alot of his career to wear the black and gold. his dedication to what he loves should be commended. like i said in a previous post he is in his 8th year when most veterans hit their prime. look how long it took maddox to finally crack a starting line-up. regardless 1-3 the steelers definitely have the best corp of qb's to go along with the best rb's and lb's. some young studs on the o-line and secondary too. steelers are stacked

Whew... What a relief. Thank goodness Ben is going to be OK. I was so worried. It didn't look good. I really thought it was going to be a more threatening injury. Ben is hard as steel!

Get well soon, Ben! We need ya, baby!

And why can't we hit a QB in the legs.? I've seen plenty of quarterbacks get hit in the legs already this season. I think you have your rules mixed up. At no point can a QB be hit in the helmet.
A player can not intentionally dive at a quarterbacks kness if he's standing still and has a clear shot at the QB. Ben was not standing still and Castillo did not have a clear shot. Castillo lunged towards Ben. Ben just happened to step into where Castillo had landed. No harm, no foul. You won the game and Ben will be okay.

You must of not been watching the same game as me. Castillo did in fact lunge at Ben's knee's. Was it intentional? yes Did he mean to hurt Ben? That I do not know. But it's football and things happen whether it's intentional or unintentional.

I also remember been standing still. It would be interesting to learn how he hyperextended his knew if he were not standing still because you're much more prone to that injury when a foot is firmly planted on the ground an momentum goes through your knee. Seemed like a cheap shot to me.

Yeah, this is the gist of the post I erased at the beginning of page 4. I have a DVR and I watched it a few times...he was previously being block, but the block was over and was directing him downward, not towards Ben's knee's. He accelerated into Ben's knee's, and the only debate can be over whether he was trying to spear Ben's knee's with his helmet to injure him or just using what he had (his helmet) in order to make a play.

If he played for the Colts, I'd have no doubts at all...

Erased it, but his leg was straight and the play was already over. It wasn't a late hit, but he got him at just the wrong position.
