Default So I was wrong.....

I was supportive of the rooneys decision to not throw the bank at faneca. Upon further review it should have been done. You need to invest your 100 million dollar qb. I hope the steeers do everything they can in the offseason to upgrade the line. Because at this rate ben wont see the end of his contract

Faneca was on board for the O-Line problems in 2006 and 2007.

He wouldn't have helped right now.

The line was fine. Ben did not produce. Simple as that.

Ben was only sacked like what? One time? And it didn't seem like he was holding the ball too long.

It was Ben's fault, not the lines.

Quote from Ben after his meeting with Tomlin lats week "You know what? I have played sub-par football to date," Roethlisberger said. "It's time for that to change and it will change. I think as my performance changes, I think you'll see some changes in the offense because we'll be clicking more, we'll be making more completions and things will happen nice." Maybe Tomlin better have another meeting, maybe he could possibly include Lefty, lol

Yeah, he did seem to be getting rid of the ball quicker, but he still made several bad decisions.

I thought the O-line did a pretty good job of protecting Ben. Not great, but adequete enough. Ben didn't take advantage, and it cost us.



As for everyone spouting about Ben's "I Will Do Better" statement, he DID take a step in the right direction, in the form of quicker passes, utilizing Moore out of the backfield and throwing more quick slants. UNFORTUNATELY, he also made some bad decisions that I think were affected by his battered body.

Everyone is responsible for it.
