    Safe sideline one read crap with Ben? No. May as well bench him and keep him healthy, until it's feasible cap wise to trade/cut him.
    Ben's true greatest skill is play-action...he is not a great deep ball passer...

    He needs a running game to do that...

    Edited to add: Not saying he's a terrible deep ball passer...

    I know this wasn't the plan in the offseason but you gotta do what you gotta do when guys go down.

    Agree feltdizz.. Heath accounted for 15% of the Steelers offense last season and Wallace was another 15%. If my math is correct, that's 30% of the offense that needed replaced.

    Oh, btw, Dwyer accounted for another 14% of the offense..... so you have nearly 50% of the offense needing replaced by others having to step up. So far, it obviously hasn't happened.
