Not saying Ben "sucks" or should be fired or anything (that is ludicrous-- as always, we take the good with the bad).

But he has to own his share of the disaster. A LOT of the inconsistency and hot/cold nature of our offense is due to Ben's playing style.

Between two different offensive coordinators with totally different schemes, we saw many of the same problems rear their head as the season wore on. Ben is the lowest common denominator.

I do excuse some of his poor play on having just become a new daddy. I can sympathize, my boy is on his way and due to arrive in March. I hear I won't be sleeping mroe than about 3 hours at a stretch afterwards....being a new parent too- I expect to make some serious blunders.

Gosh what a miserable season.
We may have won one against Baltimore, but truth be told, the Ravens have been a classier, more successful organization than us over the last decade. They kind of own us. And I don't expect that to change next year, when Joe Flacco is one year wiser.
Year in and year out, there at the top or giving us trouble.
We have a good year every now and then but look at us now.

Did he say they've been more successful than us over the past decade?

Didn't you guys know? The Ratbirds won the super bowl TWICE last season alone! What makes this even more impressive is that the Rats somehow accomplished this without even winning the Conference Championship game. That is an unparalleled amount of success.

Nothing like a Raven Troll to bring all Steeler fans together.

I may be grasping at straws but I do think that played into some of Ben's poor play after his return. I think it was a combination of the injury and the new born. Not just lack of sleep, but maybe lack of focus. I know he is a professional athlete and should be able to focus 100 % on football but he is also a human being. I know when I had my children most of my thoughts were on them. Let's cross our fingers if he has more children he plans it a little better so the birth is in the off season.

Regardless of whatever the Steelers do or what flaws they have, fuck the Ravens.

Don't they have a playoff game to lose or something?
