I hate to say it, but you're absolutely right.

I don't believe that SF is is so good that Batch or Dixon couldn't have handled them.
But playing Ben made them look a whole lot better and probably made Ben's leg a whole lot worse.

The main thing that would bother me if I were a Steeler fan is that he set himself up to be out for the season. Then what are you going to do? I realize how nice it would be to win the division, get home field and all that but the fact that he was left in for the whole game as bad as it was going for him. It was so obvoius watching him hobble around that he was in no shape to be productive. You already had a playoff berth locked up. Luckily it looks like he didn't injure himself any worse.

I only aggree that Ben shouldn't have been out there. BUT the first pick, well lets see, if the idiot TE Johnson sticks his hands out and catches the ball we are at least 1st and Goal! 10% Bens fault for who he threw to...

The Second INT, isn't it said if the balls in your handds it should be caught? Heath was stretched out to the limit but he did have his hands there... so I'll go 50/50 on that!

Third one, I missed due to a bathroom break so I can't comment! But the coaching staff nas to have BALLS and sit Ben if he flipping hurt! Every other player does....

I was fine with that pick (picks happen) but after the first half, I think it was pretty obvious that Ben was not "Ben" and I would have pulled him for the second half.

I think you are overestimating the ability of this team without Ben and underestimating the 49'ers overall.

They had to give it a go with Ben. They had virtually no choice given the circumstances.

No matter how much you want to spin it, the Harbaugh's are some pretty damn good coaches.

Give it a go, sure. Not the whole game.

Hate to say it but Steelers were still in it until the field goal flag and then they ended up scoring. That sealed the deal.
Every team's Defense has an off day, RAVENS did Sunday night. It is what it is.

But i wont talk crap or anything because i know how much i hate it when my team loses.

As long as the RAVENS get the 2nd or 1st seed and the STEELERS still make it into the playoffs and win to be able to meet the RAVENS i will be happy. As much as i hate the steelers, i wouldnt have it any other way in the play off scenario, as long as its at the BANK this time.

I personally think you guys need to rest Ben for the Playoffs or atleast for the RAMS game, just my opinion. As long as you guys are the 5th seed and RAVENS are 2nd, if the RAVENS some how are the 1st seed then i hope the Steelers are the 6th seed. So it will be an almost guarantee for a RAVEN/STEELERS Division play off. I dont see the Steelers losing to DENVER or TEXANS in the play offs.

The receivers are at fault for the int's also. The defense was giving Alex Smith a cushion like the one they used to always give Brady. Even bad qb's at the NFL level can complete 3-10 yard open passes all day. The niners wouldn't have got 20 if the offense would have done their job on a few drives and took some time off the clock. This defense does play good enough to win games, but they just aren't exceptional like the prior years. No turnovers, no qb pressure, inconsistant defensive schemes like giving a no name QB a 10 yard cushion, all those things will make it hard to win in the playoffs unless the offense really shows up.

The defense wasn't perfect, but they did a good job. They held a talented offense to just 6 points for thirty minutes, and our offense couldn't capitalize on that. At some point you can work, and work and work. But if your not getting paid, your not going to work as hard, am I right?

The defense WAS that bad and no one stepped up for their QB! NO ONE! Dropped balls and passes going through hands. That all leads to bad things that get compounded when you turn the ball over 4 times. The D couldn't get off the field all night. Bad game, chalk it up to that and move on. Rest the wounded and get ready for a 5 seed.
