Default Is there really locker room problems between Ben and Hines?

I'm way out here in Denver, and all I get on the subject is national media junk that says that Ben and Hines are trying to split the locker room. I understand the losing is rough on all of them (and all of us) but can there really be this many issues over what I thought was a kind of toss away comment that Hines made on Ben playing? I thought the media blew up his comment way out of control because it was one of the few bad things that came from the Steelers locker room. Is the Ben/Hines situation as bad as Adam Shefter and the rest of the ESPN staff saying it is?

Nah. The media loves their controversies. They'll make one up if none actually exist.

There appears to be locker room problems, period, not just between Ben and Hines. It appears that Tomlin has damn near totally lost control, and it seems like the team is playing to get some people canned. I think a lot of the guys are starting to resent Ben's control of the team. I don't know though, just my thoughts on it.

Way offbase, IMO.

After the second loss to Cinci, this team doubts each other. They lost the confidence they had in each other, themselves and the coaches. The band of brothers has been broken.

You almost rephrased what I said, so how is it offbase?

ummm....no I didn't. I didn't say they resented Ben. The QB is supposed to a team leader, and they've often said they are proud of the leader he's become. I didn't say that Tomlin lost control of the locker room. I said they lost confidence in each other. Last year, they had each others backs. I don't know what you read, but it certainly wasn't what you described. You desribed a bunch jealous, back stabbing crybabies and the inmates running the asylum.

Ben has no replacement for Troy's knee. It's been the "Perfect Storm" of injuries all coming together this year.

It's a pity party now, we're past finger pointing.

They all packed it in - "see you next year".

The Bengals got a bunch of rent-a-players to get where they are ( or rent-a thugs, if you prefer).

There's no such thing as a rent-a-Troy.
