Now that I think about it, maybe he is a great QB because of having a broken hand.

Throwing 41 times for almost 400 yards on a team that supposedly has NO passing game WITH a broken hand may very well be the sign of a great QB. Most QB's couldn't have accomplished that performance with a perfectly functioning hand...

Damn right - plus don't forget that by mid-way through the third quarter our rb's were having a tough enough time holding the ball, never mind running with it, so he got those numbers against a defence that pretty much knew we were coming out to throw it. It was a fantastic performance - you put up those kind of numbers then you're a quality qb.

There were times late in the game where it seemed that Ben and Heath Miller were taking on the Bengals more or less on their own, that we gave up so much possession and still got so close says something about his quality....

Did McNabb puke before the surgery?

Thanks to the Bengal fans that have finally found out what us Steelers fans knew all along. If Ben ever gets the chance to be the focal point of our O and pass more, everyone else will know how good he is as well. He's still only a second year QB, he's developing. Conversely, Carson is a damn fine QB as well. I see plenty of shootouts the next decade or so for these 2 teams.

He's a "converted" Raiders fan, and is now an Eagle fan, although I suspect, given the vicious ass beating the Eagles were handed last night, he's probably jumped ship yet again. He was kind of drifting towards the Colts bandwagon back during his first visit.

Shameless...absolutely shameless. I'd rather commit Hari Kari then blatantly front-run like that sorry dude...
