    Ben played poorly tonight, had he been his typical 65% completion percentage this game would have been hanging in the balance at the end. He had more time than I thought he would have. This is hard to say, but the offensive line was adequate in pass protection for a veteran quarterback of Ben's caliber. They were horrific in run blocking, but that's a different story.

    Ben has a lot more WR talent than a lot of other teams....especially the 2-0 Patriots.

    The lack of a running game is killing the offense by making it one dimensional. I still think Heath will help improve the line and also help free up the WR's. But let's also face the facts that the Steelers haven't had a power running game in years.

    Pats D has TO's... that helps an offense who is struggling. Pats arent good on offense either.

    Always excuses for this team...... as the L's keeping adding up and adding up. That's ok... we'll turn into the Browns but hell, we have all the excuses in the world as to why we suck.

    Come on. Ben drives them down the field from his 4 yard line and Paulson fumbles.

    Ben drives them down and they get a BS tripping call. That's tough to overcome.

    Ben did have the pick late in the game and it was a poor throw. But if I were Ben I would be pissed. And he looked like it through most of the game with all of the gaffes by his teammates and coaches.
