Default Re: If not Ben, then who?

Thank God we won today. I was worried and it was close.

17-10 in the 4th with the Browns threatening to score.

But then I knew it would be close as soon as I saw it was Ben vs a 3rd string rookie qb who was starting his first game.

Steelers MVP was the Browns rookie who fumbled after making a first down catch.

Because Ben threw 3 tds and 0 ints I now admit he is the best qb of all time and that no NFL starter on any other team could lead the Steelers offense any better than he could. Amazing 120 yard performance.

This thread should not exist, nor should any calling Ben's role as our starting quarterback into question. The guy is fabulous, plain and simple, and he has his missteps like all other quarterbacks. The influence of the position is such that a big mistake at the end of the game is usually the quarterback's to make, and thus he is blamed for it.

Ben is an upper echelon quarterback, and just about every team in the league would gladly take him off our hands if idiots are clamoring to get rid of him. Take your mindlessness elsewhere.

It's NOT about "If not Ben, then who?", it's about "when NOT Ben, then who?"
Time will tell, sooner than we may think.

THREE rookie quarterbacks are taking their teams to the playoffs if RGIII pulls out a win today.

Ben isn't as hard to replace as you'd all like to pretend.

Ben's offense put up 23 ppg or less in all but one season in his career.

It doesn't matter who the coaches are. Ben is Ben.

That's what happens when management wants to play an outdated style of football...

Please be more specific. I don't want you to make loose accusations of outdated philosophy.

Please come right out and say that over the last several years Bruce Arians offense played a conservative run-based offense reminiscent of Cowher ball. Arians never gave Ben the opportunity to succeed in a down-the-field passing attack instead choosing an offense based on short yardage running and passing plays.

That way I can laugh in your face.

The world according to Arians was that Ben was an elite qb and the receiving corps was the best in the NFL. I guess you bought into that bs all the way huh?

Cleveland Rookie looked pretty good against our vaulted defense. Moved the ball well all day, too bad Ben fell asleep on that fake punt. Wished Ben could of run the ball better on those 2nd and 3rd and 2-3 yard plays today. Hey maybe if Ben had punted better instead of some of those shanks. Wished B en had thrown that ball off his back shoulder instead of Plax maybe he would of made an effort to catch it. Hey you guys are on to something this is fun to pretend.

I can tell you for a fact this. If we were to replace Ben today with say an Alex Smith, three fan groups including players, coaches of the North division would rejoice. Furthermore the team that signed Ben would be an automatic threat to win their division. All these rookies having great years remind me of Vick, Cam, Vince Young. all had pretty good starts and now only Cam really has a chance to turn this past season around. I think Luck is the real deal, I was for the Steelers drafting Wilson (short size and all) but it still remains to be seen what they do in the near future.

*Scratches head* I thought our D only allowed 10 points?

Could have been a tie game there in the 4th as I mentioned.

Thankfully we won this squeaker at home against the Cleveland Browns and their 3rd string rookie qb.

Couldn't have won without Ben! M-V-P! M-V-P!

What was our record when Ben was out for 4 games a couple seasons back? I forget. Oh wait... 3-1.

Steelers are nothing without Ben!!!!! Oh wait... 6-7 lifetime without Ben.

The Steelers are a .500 team without Ben!!!!

Hmm they were a .500 team this year too.

The Steelers are a .500 team with Ben!!!!!

M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!

The answer IS Ben but he does need to refind his clutch game as someone pointed out the other day. He has been bad in the clutch lately and that kills us!!!!!!
