I've always said I want to be a Steeler for life! I love it here, I'm happy here. I don't want to go anywhere. No one in my family, in our camp, agents, no one has ever said anything about that, so wherever this was made up from, it's totally false.

    "This is ridiculous! I don't want to go anywhere, I love it here! This is family! This is where I want to be, and where I've always wanted to be. I don't want to play for anyone else..I'm a Pittsburgher. This is home. I'm so proud to raise my kids here. I want to finish my career here, however long that is. I don't want to play for anybody else. This is it for me!" -- Ben, to the media in reference to the rumor he wants to be traded because he is unhappy playing for the Steelers.
    I bet this thread continue for 20 pages even though the rumor has been squashed

    yep, Ben chose or had input in: The HC, the OC, OL Coach, RB Coach, WR Coach and the acquisition of the talent that surrounds him. As such, he contributed to it and should gladly be the fall guy for these decisions that "HE" made.
    You're looking for Ben to be a patsy ... "for the good of the team". If you had no choice in your boss, manager, supervisor, co-workers or the direction the owner of your company decided to go in, would you stand up and say "hey, it's partially my fault" when that company went bankrupt?

    I was talking on the field. But I agree the organization's decisions are not his and not his fault.

    But, how he plays is well within his control...

    Agree he could make better decisions at times on the field. However, a lot of that IMO only happens because of the decisions that the organization has made. i.e. at times Ben acts like he feels he has to get it done on his own ... and for the most part, other than contributions from Brown, Cotch and surprisingly Dwyer, it seems like he does have to do most of the heavy lifting on O on his own.

    the same could be said for Polamalu imo. my initial point was that the leaders of this team should take responsibility for this team and their individual effort on it. Irregardless of their record or success.

    But, see, I think they are doing that. As a matter of fact, I think they are trying to overcompensate for the youth/lack of talent they are surrounded by. That type of play leads to some terrible plays by those guys. One thing Ben always does after he has screwed up is take responsibility for it; sometimes even when it wasn't his fault. That said, there are some times when you just have to take the salt with the sugar when it comes to Ben.
