    Props to Ben...

    I dogged you early, but you played like a championship QB. Despite your suck azz OC.
    On another note TROY ( we know Ike was ) was horrible today, his gambles cost us big time.

    Ben was getting better as the game went on, he took off and ran 2 or 3 times when necessary. It would have been nice to finish a couple early drives and the game would have been out of reach. Oh well, there's next year.

    You could say that Ben's INT cost us the game.

    You mean the deep ball to Wallace that he underthrew like all deep balls to Wallace ? I mean the ones that he doesn't overthrow of course.

    Sorry, but I can't give Ben many props for last night. Yes he was playing injured, but had he not lobbied so hard in prior weeks to play, he would have been healthier for a playoff run.

    As for last night's game, it was far from his best. How do you get a delay of game with under a minute left in the game when you're driving to take the lead? He had plenty of checkdowns he could have taken during the game, but instead went for the long ball that never paid off. He needs to accept that sometimes 5, 10 yard passes are just as good as one 50 yard bomb. Arians doesn't help in that respect. he lets Ben do what Ben wants to do, even if it's not working.

    This team will never get to the next 'elite' level on offense as long as Ben and Arians continue to try and make the big splash plays, instead of taking the shorter stuff that works. Not to mention the quicker throws will lead to less offensive holding penalties, most likely, and possibly less injuries for him and his oline.

    Ben has the potential to be one of the truly best there is, but is too stubborn to change his ways and grow up.

    kind of hard to not under throw one of the fastest players in the nfl. did the ball hit wallace in the hands?

    Underthrown or not, the 52 yarder to Wallace was EASY and routine. It's ridiculous for a #1 or 2 WR to not catch that cleanly. Wasn't even getting hit. Wallace is not as good as he believes himself to be.

    Ben brought the team back but that O was putrid for a good portion of the game. And the Steelers should have been kicking for the win in regulation when they got the ball back with tons of time and time outs. That last drive was pathetic. Suisham should have been lining up for a 35 yarder with no issues to win.

    the second half of the season wallace hasnt played well at all. if he expects a big contract from the steelers in the next season or so he has to be more consistent. right now i think antonio brown is a much better wr.
