Ben, during this season, had NO HEART and Soul to even want to win, like he used to.

This behaviour HAS TO CHANGE next season. !
I do think Ben lacked fire this season. Maybe getting married and having a kid made him realize their are more important things than football. He is gonna have to find a way to be a daddy and still have passion for his job. I hate Tom Brady but do you see how fired up he is in games? We need some fire on offense. The Steelers miss Hines Ward.

want to talk about modern football? There is a reason why Ben isn't protected, and it has as much to do with him, as it does the O-line. He is the only QB that relies on the improv as much as he does. There is nothing modern about setting up an O-line to ultimately fail because you want to give your QB 7-10 seconds instead of actually making reads and using his head on a regular basis. Ben has the most guts I've seen out of any quarterback - I think he can get off of trying to prove his toughness and get on board with evolving. I don't want Ben gone - but I hate his piss poor attitude - it screams immature. His decision making is starting to reflect where his head is at - not in the right place.

Do you want to see another SB victory or not? It won't happen with the current version of BR - count on it.
And handcuffing him until the last two minutes of a game, with bubble screens, has proven to be worse than what has happened in previous years. Don't expect him to bail the team out every time if the Steelers are going to continue to play like that. Do YOU want to see another SB victory or not? It won't happen with bubble screens and holding him back until the last 2 minutes. 7-9 or 8-8 proves that.

Perhaps it's time to stop pretending Ben is the problem with this team because of the last two games.

Now, want to know how the Steelers can better protect him and help the o-line? More no-huddle. Keeps the defense on their heels and tires them out. But the Steelers won't do that often enough because they are too concerned with TOP.

It's not Ben's attitude that has to change, it's Art Rooney's outdated philosophies. He needs to understand this isn't an offense built to grind down the clock with long drives. This is an offense built for quick strike with the WRs they have.

This year Ben has 23 TD's and 8 interceptions, almost a 3 to 1 ratio. Who should we trade him for Sanchez or Tebow?

I think the problem with opening up this offense is that nobody respects our running game. They blitz our passing game, they blitz our running game. I think if we fix the RB position, we'll see Big Ben and this WR corpse get back on track.

Ben was an MVP candidate before his injury!!!

Wouldn't hurt. But ultimately they need to stop playing so scared. They don't attack, they just sit back and wait for something. Now you can say "Air-head took too many unnecessary risks!" Okay, so now they should just play chicken-shit scared football and wait until the last 2 minutes to use Ben?

Those of you who were clamoring all season "protect Ben!", don't be upset with this offense, because this is exactly what you get when you play that style.

Ben is NOT the problem. Ben is Ben. He will make some incredible plays and win games for us, and he will make mistakes that hurt us. The issue, which has been for several years, is that he has almost no help from the o-line. It's been incredibly frustrating to watch for so many years. Poor play, multiple and continual injuries, and little attention in the draft have led to a pathetic offensive line.

Couple that with some maddening play calling and what do you expect from Ben. He must feel like the entire offense depends on him escaping with his life and making an amazing play - down after down after down. Pretty heavy burden to bear.

**EDIT - That's only when they aren't running the ball headlong into an 8-man front on first and second down.

And this is why I fail to understand how this season can be blamed on Ben. This is exactly the kind of football Artie wanted them to play this season. Ben can't always save the Steelers from their own stupidity and stubbornness.
