Given that the Steelers .....

The Steelers are pretty much locked into the wild card after last nights debacle in San Fran. Given that, is there ANY reason for Ben to play the rest of the regular season? They're gonna wind up playing the Texans or Broncos in the first game (looks like). Doesn't it make sense to get Ben as healthy as possible for that game? Plus, the Steelers play saturday, so this is a short week anyhow. Additionally, the last two games are winnable regardless of who is QB. I'd sit Ben. What do you think?

Re: Given that the Steelers .....

Nope, it probably should have been benched before halftime today. He is a great player, but, no one can play their role if they are seriously injured. Isn't someone else in the NFL have the same exact injury and is listed as out for several weeks? I thought I heard that tonight

Re: Given that the Steelers .....

Yeah, Adrian Peterson but RB's need to be more agile, and quick. If Ben were an everyday pocket QB it probably wouldn't have hurt his game as much but he still couldn't step into the throws and when he can't escape the pocket, he is just a mediocre QB at best (with the O-line that he has to work with).

Heck, the second interception, he had gobs of time and still sailed it to Miller.

I agree he needs to sit and get healthy for the playoffs though. I'd rather play Denver in Rd #1 but it would be nice to knock the Texans out as well.

Suburban redneck.

I think he should sit but that isn't going to happen. His pride won't allow it and ultimately he is the one telling them how he feels. After last nights game though you could see he just wasn't right.

That said, I think Batch is serviceable but 75% Ben is still better. Of course against the Rams I could play QB.

They need to sit him until the playoffs. He and Pouncey both. There is no reason in the world to play them now.

How abouyt Mr Dixon? I thinbk I'd sit Ben, and stat Batch. He was very servicable last year while Ben was on timeout.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

So, what happens if the Stillers win out and Baltimore loses one, we win the AFC north right?

Re: Given that the Steelers .....

I would sit Ben, Pouncey, Troy, Woodley, and anyone else with a dink or sore spot. As mentioned before start Dixon if he can go and save Batch in case we need him.
