I've brought this up numerous times. Ben on 3rd down sure is a savior. Dude is on the money this year. First 2 weeks, he can't miss. We've been losing the 1st down battle (atleast in week 1) and our team was in very tough and non-manageable 2nd and longs and 3rd and longs. Ben continues to wow with his ability to be able to go for it and put his money where his mouth is.

hehe... the same defense that has the worst secondary in the league? with hands of stone taylor not capable of being astarter on any other team? with gildong sack woodley, that bust of a first round pick timmons, 1st round DE's hood and heyward who dont fit the system? fat and lazy hampton? keisel who was too small and untalented to replace von oelhoffen? injury prone, concussion waiting to happen polamalu (who cant cover)? ryan clark who can cover even less? william gay whos last name reminds people of homo's and brings them ridicule from their peers? foote who has been overrated for years and nothing but a liability? farrior who lost it 3 years ago?

maybe ben rode his offense. plex and holmes who were hated. willie who ran for negative yardage, the o-line that sucked and was the worst in history....

i think the only player that ben has ever played with that is universally liked is heath miller.

maybe hines and bettis.

I honestly hope to god he was being sarcastic. Heath Miller wasn't utilized under Arians, but he's been used GREAT so far under Haley.

oh yeah, definitely being sarcastic. The only player who's been around with the Steelers offense who I didn't want to see out there (other than linemen) was Fast Willie.

I absolutely loved the guy, and thought that his work ethic and attitude were great. However I just kind of cringed every time I saw him running the ball. Sorry to say really, because he seemed like such a great person.
