If the Steelers can't beat the craptastic Bolts with a lame-duck coach waiting to be fired, with or without Ben; it will be a total disgrace.
You mean like losing to the Raiders, Titans and Browns? OK, then.

Those games were ridiculous losses as well. In fact it's why they are fighting for a playoff spot instead of in a great position to win the division (those losses still pi$$ me off) and possibly a bye week. If the coaching staff can't prepare this team and the team itself can't get up to beat a team that flat out sucks and there are playoff implications then it's a disgrace, especially with San Diego having to fly across the country to play in Heinz field. Don't give me that any given Sunday crap. It's week 14. The Steelers are either real or frauds. They are a much more talented team than the Chargers. Beating them with Batch should not be an issue.

I said all along the Ben injury would take a month to fully heal. That's right where this is coming in at. I said the phony "We got good news from the doctor today" was just a feign in order to "trick" the Ravens. I was right.
per Steelersdepot.com, Ben practiced in full today and looked good!!!!
Uh oh...now I'm starting to doubt it. Kaboly always seems to be wrong.

You guys are missing the more significant news item; keeping Pouncey at LG and Legs at C!!! Something tells me the coaches like what they saw last weekend on that OL..
Mike Tomlin: Roethlisberger made all the necessary throws
Posted by Josh Alper on December 5, 2012
On Tuesday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would get a chance to prove he was healthy enough to do everything the Steelers expect from their quarterback during practices this week.
Based on what Tomlin had to say after practice on Wednesday, Roethlisberger was awfully close to meeting that goal. Roethlisberger took the majority of the snaps with the first team during the session and Tomlin liked what he saw when Roethlisberger put the ball in the air.
“I’ll see how his body responds in the morning and we’ll go from there,” Tomlin said, via the team’s website. “But it was a positive day today. He made all the necessary throws.”
Tomlin didn’t go much farther than calling it a positive day and “a good step,” although it’s hard to imagine that Roethlisberger won’t be the starter if he comes back to work on Thursday without suffering any downturn in his condition.
Once the Roethlisberger question is settled, the Steelers can turn their full attention to the rest of their injured players. Linebacker LaMarr Woodley, wide receiver Antonio Brown and safeties Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu all missed practice on Wednesday, making their conditions something to watch as the week unfolds before the Steelers host the Chargers.
