Default Big Ben

If you are part of a team then you should have the teams best interest in mind. He played not to have Byron Play. I think his pride was hurt during the week when people wanted him to sit and he took it personal and despite being hurt he wanted to prove the nay sayers wrong. Well all are beloved QB did was throw the game away.

Makes me wonder how much Ben will play next week. He did take some of the blame at least though.

Who are all these people that come out of the woodwork when we lose?

Um Yeah...Ben's going to override coach's decision to play? Nahhh..He's just being selfish.

It happens after every loss. I try to ignore it, because I expect it.

Absolutely. Tomlin is still learning. That's ok. I hope he realizd he should of at the very least let Byron play the fourth quarter today. He should have had him play the whole game but I'm sure Ben said he'd be fine. And he did look fine in the first quarter.

We have a very good backup this year. Take advantage of him while we can.

Especially on that last drive to win the game if Ben's shoulder was that bad.

I think Ben needs trust Lefty & 2 sit down 4 a game or 2 until that shoulder thing gets better.
