    Agreed. Hopefully, they do have a wink wink trade thing going on for draft day.

    Well, since the Bengals won the AFC North last season, we are doing what we need to do to not become the Bengals.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I agree about Ben. I would rather have a losing season next year then to not suspend him for 4 games. I would rather the team did the right thing then worry only about W's and L's.
    I guess it's how you view wrong. IMO, suspending Ben for any amount of time would be dead wrong. Just because half the Steeler Nation seems to want to kick the man while he's down doesn't mean the organization should.

    It's called making a statement to Ben and the team. It's called making a statement to the world about how the Steelers handle their business. Ben did wrong...make no mistake. There are ramifications for doing wrong. Acting like it was ok...will just make things worse.

    Cha-ching! Nail on the head. But ANP...this is Shawn. Give him two weeks and he'll be back on the band wagon. [/quote]

    I thought two weeks yet it only took 2 days.

    I think this is going to be an addition by subtraction for the Steelers.

    Hey Shawn, since I was giving you shyt about your prior stance, it's only fair for me to give you some props for putting your hand in the air on this.

    See, that's where you and I part ways. IMO, Ben did no "wrong" that anyone can show. You might not like that he was partying in a "college bar" or whatever, but that's not wrong. The only basis for thinking he did anything wrong was the word of a drunk sorority chick who couldn't get her story straight and won't stand by it. For the Steelers to pile on now would show a lack of character and class that is incosistent with the ethics of loyalty and the premise that a man is not guilty until that is proven- which it wasn't in this case.

    what he did wrong is show a lack of judgement. I would judge every player hte same way. Like pac man jones.. why would you go into a strip club (as jones did) or a night club (like ben did) when you have a case against you?

    Even if we concede the whole "lack of judgment" thing, I still don't see that as a "wrong." Especially wrong where you would actually punish a guy for it. IMO, Ben is the one who has been abused here. Some girl just made an accusation against him that has probably diminished, if not ruined his reputation even though she couldn't get her story straight and wouldn't stand by it.

    The fact that the Steeler Nation or a large portion of it isn't standing by Ben at this time makes me a little sick.

    I would punish one of my kids for showing a lack of judgement. I can't imagine Rooney thinking of it any other way.
