    Steelers wouldn't be that bad... This is a team that went 3-1 without Ben last season. Colts can't even win 1 game without Manning.

    Steelers didn't build the offense around Ben, so putting someone in their who isn't as good wouldn't be that big of a problem in my opinion. Steelers would have a better chance at making the playoffs without Ben then the Colts do without Manning.

    . . .Like a one legged man in an *** kicking contest.

    Charlie Batch could never withstand the beating of a full season.

    We would be doomed. Not as bad as the Colts but there's not one player who's more of an MVP to his team than Peyton. Even the Pats would look better than the Colts if Brady was gone.
    I have zero confidence in Charlie, if Lefty was in there I think we'd be ok. DD may be ok if he got a half a seasons under his belt.

    There's no way we'd play in Feburary, although I don't think any team who lost their qb would be.

    Last season, the Steelers averaged 270 yards and 18 points per game without Roethlisberger, and 371 yards and 23 points per game with him. In other words, Roethlisberger improved the offense's productivity by 101 yards and five points per game. That's a statistically significant difference. For as well as the defense played in Roethlisberger's absence last season, it would not have been sustainable over an entire season. Hell, the Steelers finished the 2009 season 3-1 without Troy Polamalu; does that mean he's not an essential player on the team?

    Furthermore, has anybody else noticed how easily Byron Leftwich, Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon seem to get injured? That's yet another testament to how weak our offensive line has been in recent years. The backup QBs can't stay healthy. Batch gets sacked at a rate equal to Roethlisberger, and Leftwich and Dixon get sacked at a higher rate. The running game hasn't finished in the top 10 in rushing yards since 2007, or any higher than 16th in YPC since then either. The offensive line was the most penalized in the NFL last season. Red zone efficiency was among the worst in the NFL. And we're supposed to believe that the problem is Roethlisberger holding onto the ball too long? Bullshit! Utter bullshit! If anything, Roethlisberger masks a lot of problems with the rest of the offense.

    The Steelers need him just as much as they need Polamalu, period. To even suggest otherwise is a slap in his face.

    I'm not even gonna entertainer that thought cuz a couple of days leading up to the sea chickens game I just had a bad feeling that Ben was going to take a bad hit to the knee. When it happened at the end of the 2nd quarter I almost **** myself.

    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united steeler nation.
    And to the franchise for which it stands. One nation of domination
    With the ability to crush you all.
