    Ben has a flare for the drama no doubt. I say if the Steelers get out to a 3 score lead, they have to get Ben out of there. Barring a pick 6 or special teams score or gift fumble, the Broncos are not scoring more than 10 points on Sunday.

    Not to mention Charlie can move around a little more and vs the Rams (yes I know it was the rams), the offense had more flow to it than it has while Ben is in there on one leg.

    Drama queen or not we know he's not 100%, there's no way he can be. He keeps playing and practicing these last couple of weeks it's no wonder. You're in crunch time now, if he can play and move around then he needs to do so. If he can be as mobile as he was in Cleveland last week then I'll take him on Sunday.

    Funny you should say we only need 13 points to win, because I was listening to the denver am talk show hosts here and they believe the Steelers offense is only capable of scoring 17 points!! They're reasoning was Mendy will be out and Ben not being able to plant off his back foot, decreased mobilitiy, etc due to the ankle injury. They were thinking Bailey was going to get a couple picks. They thought the defense could keep them close for another 4th qrtr win. I couldn't stop laughing long enough to call in and tell them they will have a tough time scoring themselves. If the bronco WR's are not open by 2-3 steps tebow does not pull the trigger. Hello Harrison and Woodley.

    Speaking of Denver Radio (it is AM 850, KOA btw) one of there fans wrote this recently.

    "I was STUPID to pay NFL.COM 15.00 a yearfor the past 2 years to listen to Denver games when all I had to do was tune in to KOA85 and hear the game for free!" Nice to see a fan in touch with his team.

    Apparently Ben is not gonna do it Sunday according to the latest from Denver airwaves.
    The last time I heard that was in January 2005. Although it probably is truer this time around.

    And their fans.

    Ben's plant leg will be fine. It's his other leg that is injured....

    I can understand anyone thinking we cant score 17 because we pretty much cant unless we play the rams or bengals.

    Ben may indeed be a drama queen but IMO he should have not been in the game in the second half anyway. Catch-22 I know but just my opinion...

    Ben milks every injury, but I think it's for purpose. He's not just like, "I'm gonna do this because I want attention." There's something to making the other team unsure of how healthy you are or aren't. Method to the madness.

    I hate that ****g Steve " I know everything" Young, every time he opens his pie hole, he talks bad about the Stillers.

    Yeah, Ben plays it up real good...He likes to keep everyone guessing.

    Which is exactly why he should have been out of the game by then.
