Exclamation Does Ben need to be unleashed ?

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/trib.../s_390102.html

Decent article by Prisuta.. normally I cant stand his stuff, but this one is pretty clear cut and decent.. anyways..

We've got Hines, El, Bus, Miller, Parker, Morgan....all waiting to be used in a big way.. is it imperative for us to open up the arsenal and let Ben start getting more passes and making more plays in the passing game.....or do we stick w/ the par, and run run run, and just let Ben do enough to win the game so to speak.

He's played well, and he's got the talent, but is it time to let loose more, or just keep doin what we're doing...

Thoughts ?

I don't want to much of either one. I would like to see a balanced attack...

Yeah, I know u wanna take little steps w/ a young QB..he's done great so far in his career! When u look at it.. the guy has lost to only 1 team in the NFL since he stepped in.

He proved he can come back in the end and help pull off the win, so lets hope when we need him, he'll continue to do so...but the more we can utilize him come playoff time, the better off we'll be, cuz we're gonna need everything he has.

Well..."pass, pass, pass" in the last two SUper Bowls, at least. The first two were DEE-fense and run, run, run.

I say play Steeler football which has, for the most part, kept them in the upper Echelon of the NFL for the majority of Cowher's tenure. That is Defense and Run the ball.

When they tinkered with a passing offense, they lose time of possession and they had a losing season in '03. People bitch about not winning a Super Bowl. I say, you have to get there to contend and if they keep staying in the picture in January, they will eventually play in February.

I'm solidly in the "50/50 balanced attack" crowd. And that means opening the offense up just a bit.

I loved our opening drive, a lovely piece of Steeler football, pound it a while, throw for first downs, nothing flashy, but workmanlike.

If we could just sustain more of those, these games would be over by halftime.

ROETHLISBERGER BREAKS A MILESTONE THEN MAKES A BREAK

By MIKE HAWK, Associated Press Writer
6 minutes ago



PITTSBURGH - Ben Roethlisberger tied a career high with 30 pass attempts Monday night against a depleted Baltimore Ravens defense. As a result of this unbelieveable passing display, Roethlisberger's arm fell off.

More to follow.
