    It seems when Ben is in rhythm everything clicks on offense, but when he starts holding the ball too long things break down and linemen going down on the backside of plays.
    I'm like throw the damn ball sometimes watching the game. We tend to blame the O-line for all our problems on offense but is Ben part of the problem?
    It nice to see him extend plays but he also puts himself in jeapardy for injuries and his o-line too.....This may seem like hog wash but hey, we're trying to figure out the problem with so many injuries on that line. Three years in a row, something is very wrong!

Many experts say doing too much power rack type of lifting puts extra stress on the lower body, leading to injuries. Do you know more than the leading strength and conditioning coaches in the US? What does your issue of "health and Fitness" say?
    I do not purport to be an expert. You do. I find it quite comical that somebody with no apparent expertise jumps to conclusions that the Steelers must not only be doing certain types of exercises, but that those exercises must be wrong.

    How did Keenan's season work out?
    OK, a CB doesnt have near the contact that everyone else has, lets be real. They CAN lift the next day, but lineman?

    Please specify where I claimed I was an expert.

    Says you. When you put something like that out there support your opinion with some facts. Over the last 5 years where do the Steelers rank in OL injuries compared to other NFL teams?

    I don't know where you can look such a thing up, but we can use this thing called "common sense." Let's put it this way: How many teams were on their 5th string OT and didn't have a single back up OLmen on their bench, having to put in a TE as a OLmen if they had 1 more injury?

    Now that's some funny stuff right there.

    So true. The trainers should get him the Medical Alert System. Better still, get them for his OL mates.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    I'm hearing Gilbert might not even make the team unless some serious training and diet are utilized this off season.
