Seriously........3 defeats, all really avoidable (ok maybe the Eagles wasn't)........but for a patched up O-Line............they're doing pretty good. There are plenty of teams who'd sell their own Mothers for 8-3 right now!

2 weeks, no sacks, no INTS, and 4-0 in the Division just sounds nice right now!
The Eagle defeat was completely avoidable.

And all three defeats, well, two of the three, fall DIRECTLY on the O line.

I love how when we lose Ben gets all the blame and then when we win he hardly gets any credit. I guess it's the nature of being a QB.

Not from me.

Ben did a good job. A VERY good job.

He looked like his old self again.

2 weeks and ben doesnt hit the ground
The Chargers were without Shawne Merriman, and if he were healthy and playing I'm sure it would be a different story. The Bungles have no pass rush whatsoever. So the Steelers haven't allowed any sacks in 2 weeks against teams with no pass rush? That still doesn't change the fact that teams like the Eagles, Giants, and Ravens were easily able to throw Ben around like a rag doll.

yep i agree totally... aside from willie being hurt (i think he should rest for a bit)

on a side note, let's not get ahead of ourselves... 4 more TOUGH games to go (im thinkin tomlin sits everyone against the browns if we clinch a bye) and thats still enough for us to finish 8-8 or 9-7... lot of football left to be played so let's take it a week at a time...

great game!

Dang...I hope I wasn't slagging off ole Big Ben....I love the hourly chimes he makes!
For me, the O-Line and QB come as a package (like Gin and Tonic), you can't have one without the other, so the failure of one reflects on the other, and vice versa.

(Although saying that, I still do believe Ben has tried too hard on occasions to win games on his own, instead of playing 'percentage' football). But maybe that's that's just me....I'm English for f**ks sake.....what would I know? ....and just what the heck is percentage football these days?

I digress......but take it from the English perspective. Everyone assumes Big Ben (the real one in London) is the Tower. No..no....no... wrong. Big Ben is the Bell within the Tower. The Tower is namless, but if you want, you can call it Nigel!...or The O line! .....But everyone see's it, as it's the most famous landmark in London, after Saint Paul's, and everyone says, "Ohh, Big Ben".

So, Big Ben is the QB, and the Clock Tower, or Nigel as we've ascertained, is the O-Line. Either way, one can't work without the other. Ben won't chime if the Tower isn't there to hold him up, and the Tower is pretty much useless, without Ben inside calling out the quarterly chimes...which he does very accurately (Think he's only missed twice since he's been playing for London!!.....and one of them was for cleaning!!)

So there you go...hope that's cleared everything up!

It's now very early over here, and I've yet to get some sleep!! Stupid time zones....and I'm out of coffee.........
