I really think he needs to sit out a week or two - hopefully he won't be forced out any longer than that, though.

Hopefully its nothing serious. Sitting out a week or two isn't going to hurt either.

as long as he is ready for the stretch run come December. I feel pretty good with Leftwich keeping them afloat until then but I'd rather have Ben at the helm come December & January.

Get healthy Ben!

So does anyone else think the steelers are going to take their offensive line needs seriously this comming off season...
I look for at least one FA offensive line move and then draft at least 2 more in the early rounds....

Ben needs to sit for a few games.

We all know what happens when Ben is not at 100%.

Exactly....

Hey Ben..

Have a seat for the month of Novemeber. You are a warrior, we all know that. But you're worth a lot more to us healthy!!! Get better, then put us on your shoulders and take us for a ring!

If the Steelers want Big Ben to play all 8 years of his contract they must get offensive line help. This is taking years off his career.

I believe Leftwich can carry the load while Ben heals up.

Agreed that we are going to need Ben down the home stretch.
