Default Here Is The Real Question!!!!

First off I would like to wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas, all of the Steeler faithful deserve a Merry Christmas!!!!!! Now I have to ask as the Steelers head into week 17, start Ben or not? Does it depend on the Ratbirds vs. Bengals outcome or does he get some reps? With the game being moved back to 4:15 do the Steelers game plan for the Browns or a Ravens outcome????

I heard rats game was also moved to 4:15, so can't be scoreboard watching. Ben should sit regardless of what seed we are playing for. He needs to be healthy for playoffs.

I would say it all depends on how much he can move around. If he can move around with little pain, then give him a quarter or two.

Start him and take him out if we gain a good lead. Same with other starters. We can't go into the playoffs out-of-sync and cold, and we've done that several times this year. Directly after the bye-week once, and even showed up in San Fran off a 11-days rest an got whooped.

On second thought, don't start him unless he can run around a bit more. An immobile Roethlisberger isn't a winning recipe.

Exactly. His play has dropped off from just a few games ago. We need him to get warmed up again against what should be an "easy" team.

We haven't played well off rest all year, and it seems that before the rest happens, we play decent. We get a bye week and nearly drop one to the pre-Orton Chiefs. Then it's the Niners story.
