    The Steelers tried to do that last year, and it worked for a time...

    And after a while it became way too predictable..

    Ben heriocs on 3rd down made Haley look like genius. In the end it just caught up...

    So if the offense works its because of Ben but if it fails its because of Haley ... got it.

    Yes, Crash and how often were you convinced we were going to dump Ben in the past?
    Bray is no threat to Ben, you are so insecure about your hero.

    Actually it didn't. Most of the season they sputtered and waited for 3rd down Ben to save them.

    In the 2nd round? If he's picked in round 2 he's the successor. Period.

    Why do you assume that he is picked in the second?

    I'm not. But their are rumors out there we will pick a QB in round 2.

    If we do, he's the successor.

    And yet they had more passing attempts last year than they EVER had.
    Frank truth is that the closest thing to "yinzer" football played by Ben was in:
    Rookie season: highest win percentage
    2nd season: Youngest SB winning QB
    4th season: Bens highest QB rating and most TD passes

    Those are the seasons with the fewest QB pass attempts.

    All other seasons we have done what YOU want, been a pass happy team.
    This includes every time we missed a playoff with Ben.

    Dont dare blame last seasons fiasco on "too much handoffs" when we ran less than we EVER have.

    And before you come back with the "we passed early and ran late" line AGAIN when I bring up Ben's early success, PLEASE tell us that you want to GO BACK to that WINNING FORMULA, or dont even go there.

    I still think there is a chance Bruce A. trys to get Ben next year. I think it depends how he does in AZ this year and how the Steelers do this season.

    Bruce A. will not have the sick head coach to motivate the team. Also who's his starting QB? Hoyer or Stanton? Maybe it will be one of the other 2 still there. Skelton or Lindley? Will Bruce have the draft ammo to get a deal done with the Steelers is the only sticking point.

    I will not be happy for it to happen but as I keep reading on here. Ben is either not a fit for the offense or about done. Crash would be excited. No more Art 2 to deal with and that terrible defense that gives back TD's.
