I was pissed during the game, but in retrospect, he had a bad night. Just like the victors QB did in the Browns game (minus of course all the starters that were out and our pourous O-Line ).

Since we're playing their NFC East Rival in Washington next week, do ya think they'd let us borrow Feagles?

What's really funny about those who say "Ben sucks in big games" is that the guy won 3 of the biggest games of his career and was one of the biggest reasons why the Steelers got to XL. A run that included beating the #1 and #2 seeded teams ON THE ROAD.

Nah, he sucks. Let's get rid of him.

Edman is right. Steelers fans don't deserve him.

When someone on in Cinci starts on the Ben sucks crap, and mentions his play in XL, I just say, " soooooo, you're sayin' the Steelers would have gotten to the Superbowl with Tommy Maddox at QB.?' "

Not to mention, that in the predicate, it should be "you and me". "I" is a nominative (substantival) pronoun.

Bradshaw played hurt many times. Even played a game with a cast on his arm.

To jump off Ben's bandwagon after a Superbowl victory is his hands in only his second starting season, and the success and leadership he brings to the team you should be ashamed with yourself.

Seems like after every poor game that Ben has god forbid, people jump straight on his back saying how he led us to defeat, and sure Sunday he had a big part in the loss, but to say its all his fault is crazy talk.
Ben is the leader of this team and a franchise QB who can make a name for himself in the NFL in the future, and he will again lead us to victory.

There's a difference between being critical of your team and jumping off the bandwagon. Makaveli and several others are jumping off the bandwagon. Notice how they were nowhere to be found after the Jacksonville game. Yes, he did not play well Sunday. But that doesn't make him terrible. Calling him Big Pick Oafishberger when he's done nothing but win since his rookie season is ridiculous.

We know what Ben is capable of. We all know he's good. Even last Sunday, he made some plays. Too bad that long TD pass was called back, because it wasn't called, this probably wouldn't even be an issue right now. One pass bounced off of Nate's tummy (which he should've caught) and right into the hands of a Giant defender who just happened to be there. It just wasn't his day. It happens.

Watch them disappear when Ben lights up the Redskins next Monday.

You know it is one bad game and, lets not go overboard here. Plus it was not a division foe and, Ben always bounces back after a tough game. I remember 05 season against the bungles where Ben had three picks and, Ben played well the rest of that season leading us to the SB.

Still I really think it was a game we should have won but, the wheels came off. Too many penalty's on some bs calls. Like it mentioned already you can't name a Qb who has not had a bad game in the NFL. It is wasy too easy to sit here and beat a dead horse about the game on sunday. Time to get ready for the skins on Monday night. I will never jump off the Big Ben bandwagon.

Im not jumping off.....Bens still a great QB that got us a SB. He does things that no other QBs could do and im glad we have him.


That said there is nothing wrong IMO of pointing out that he stunk against the Giants. He looked lost out there for the majority of the game.

He and the O folded in the face of adversity and we lost despite an amazing Defensive effort from our D.

We couldn't find that extra gear to beat the champs....its as simple as that..........(Which is starting to get a little worrisome considering.....Whens the last time we've beaten a powerhouse????)
