    Because I apparently have a similar opinion as he did?

    Doesn't take much to get mud thrown at you here it seems.

    Seriously, how many IP addresses does Crash have? You can ban names and/or ip addresses. And why would anyone want to post in a community that doesn't appreciate their genius?

    There are question marks on this team and Ben is one of them IMO. If he and Haley can work together and put a good offense on the field, if Ben can keep himself healthy and if Ben can eliminate the brain cramps at the wrong time the Steelers will have a great shot at being a playoff team.

    If any one of those things doesn't happen the Steelers will have issues and any 2 out of 3 will certainly land them in 3rd of 4th place in the division. Like every other team, the Steelers rely on their quarterback to play very well. Ben is one of the best in the game, but there are some things he needs to do better and none of them are physical skills, they're all between the ears things that must improve.

    So it's Ben's fault he can't always bail the team out on third and long after the running game fails? It's his fault he can't bail them out in the last minute of the game because the Steelers were enamored with time of possession in a scoring league?

    There are many issues on the team - Ben isn't one of them. Trying to say otherwise is just pretending.

    Did Ben not throw a horrendous pass against Dallas last year which cost us the game and likely the playoffs. The pass was a bad decision on Ben's part and that is only 1 example. Oh yea, Ben can't be blamed for anything either.

    I never said he's never made mistakes, but he wasn't anywhere close to being the main problem with the team last year. On a side note, I do think it's funny so many fans forgot about Brown's fumble on a punt return when the Steelers lead 24-17 in the Dallas game.
