    I have no problem Ben playing in the game, he was our only chance to win. But once the game was at hand, not sure why he wasn't pulled. Imagine if Ben further injured his ankle in the final minutes when the game was essentially over.

    I simply don't understand why our hurt, one legged, franchise QB was out on that field in the condition he was in w/ 2 minutes left in which he could have been really injured? He is our future, franchise, and budget for the foreseeable future and he wasn't even able to get up off the field unassisted. It was painful to watch and according to some, even more painful to be playing against him. Now that's an embarrassment.

    You can spin it any which way but the buck always stops w/ the coach. The risk far out weighed the reward, at that point in the game, and that's an understatement of how disastrous it could have been.

    I agree guys, he should have been pulled out of the game instead of staying in to risk further injury. That's on both Tomlin and Ben. Ben has nothing to prove to the other 52 guys on that team, he should've came out when Tomlin asked him to. Tomlin should not have asked him to come out, he should have ordered him out. It is what it is.....
