Otherwise you get 16 pages of bitchin at other posters about their need to vent after a frustrating situation. That being said.. I am a member.. i post when I feel I need to post.. I don't live on this forum and make friends with everyone I just come to see what is being said about the team i've loved for 30 years of my life. Again with that being said.. Ben is playing like royal dogshit and if he plays like that again he needs to see some bench time. Put aside his past.. The past doesn't mean shit right now. Right now he's playing some of the worst football i've ever seen and he looks like a scared schoolgirl that can't decide if he wants to loose his virginity or not. Sure our line isn't the greatest but there has been so many times Ben could of moved and he just stands there anymore. Shit I would love to see Dennis Dixon play for all I care.. I don't think we have a set solution for who or what we need but I'm tellin you right now.. I'm callin him out.. Benny boogers.. You are stinkin up the field. Ok Ben Lovers.. that should drag this into a couple more pages at least.. have at it.........:S
Let's see - you go on a rant about "childish arguing" and then christen Roethlisberger "Benny Boogers." Ironic.

Ben is a Warrior and we can't win the "ship without him , however, he needs to let his shoulder heal, that is why Leftwich is here. This week Leftwich should start with Dixon at backup and Ben the emergency QB.

Is there an echo in here? I've been saying that for the past two days!

Don't know if his injury is more severe than we are being told as fans, but a shoulder injury, especially to a QB, is usually a lingering injury that only heals with proper rest. The coaching staff will most likely evalulate Ben this week to see if he can play this weekend against the Bolts. If there is any doubt whatsoever in their minds, they should sit Ben and start Leftwich imho.

i think bens shoulder is about as good as its gonna get this season. while it wont worsen, it seems like an injury that would take 4-6 weeks to really heal naturally.

what is really hurting ben the most is being w/o mendenhall and parker. the philosophy going into this season was ben throwing about as much as kerry collins and eli manning are (even if he wants to be jay cutler or drew brees).

I think Ben's problem is the beard...or lack there of.

He needs to grow that thing back out like he did for the SuperBowl run. All that itching is bound to make him forget about the protection and injury problems.

Just saying. I think every thing else has been covered to this point.

Confidence. CONFIDENCE CONFIDENCE CONFIDENCE! :)

Just my .02 on Big Ben, but I like him. He knows how to win. He's got a Superbowl ring, and made some great plays in it. Does he throw interceptions? Yep. Always has. Have we seen many QBs who don't? Not really. Neil...till the Superbowl. Anyway, I think Ben is losing his confidence out there, and I don't know how, but he's got to keep it. Yeah, he threw that interception and it cause them only to have a 3 point lead. My attitude was, "So what? Look at our first quarter."

I know you luv him him (i am assuming you are female) but be objective to his play lately and not so defensive. I am sure he luvs you too...
Notice how these two (just by coincidence, I'm sure, and they're definitely not the only ones) haven't been around since, oh, right around the time of the loss to Indy, which is the last time the team lost? Anybody want to make a bet they'll only come back here to start bitching and squawking again after another loss and won't show back up under any other circumstance?


So, to any potential newbs that read this - when you stay silent after every win, but come here to bitch, whine, moan, complain, and call for ridiculous trades (Ben for Brady Quinn? Still shaking my head over that one....) and throw everyone associated with the organization under the bus after a loss (fire Tomlin, Arians, the Rooneys, the Rooneys' family dog, etc.), expect to get called out on it.

Ben for Brady Quinn! What a joke. You said it like it is. Amen. Amen. Amen. People need to use their heads and wise up before writing such nonsense.
