Is it Ben? It felt like all of Pittsburgh was behind Charlie Batch and that was our high point this year...
Did our FO make Ben a lame duck? He should be the team leader but it feels like the FO stripped him this year.
..and to make matters worse Arians won coach of the year.
There may be something to the idea that the team wanted to show themselves to be bigger than Ben that they undermined his leadership and ended up hamstringing the whole O in the process.
No way do they go out of their way just to tick off franchise QB because they want to show him who is boss. They only do it if they figure the change will help them win more games in the long run. I'm sure they think Ben will eventually embrace this offense and it will lead to more victories.
..and with Ben's past I'm sure they have gone out of their way to remind him who is in charge.
