    I think Ben is going to play this week. Tomlin just said at his news conference an hour ago that he looks good and is going to throw tomorrow. All signs point to Ben being ready to go on Sunday which should definitely increase our chances of winning even that much more. The Chargers are not a very good team and there is no reason what so ever that the Steelers should not win this game if they play like they are capable of...

    Only if he is 100%. He should be on ready standby in case the game calls for him versus Charlie.

    We need Ben healthy for the playoffs.

    I'm firmly content with Batch starting this week, same as I was the week before and going into the Cleveland game. He'll make his share of mistakes but the defense is playing well and the run game is good enough to help carry them through the mistakes that Batch will make from time to time.

    Ben was nowhere close to playing last week now he's questionable for this week. I'm perfectly fine with sitting him for another week if he needs it. So long as he comes back during the season at some point to shake off the rust before the playoffs.

    If BR7 is ready he needs to play.....PERIOD......the Steelers won last week in spite of Batch, he made way more mistakes than good plays........Steelers need to win out the best chance of that is with BR7.......everybody is overlooking the Chargers....people forget the Raiders,Titans and Browns games...no team is a pushover in the NFL and the Steelers aren't going to win with Batch.....the best player named Batch on the team is Barron....lol....

    Err, Ben has won TONS of games with a he!! of a lot worse numbers than Batch had last week, especially against the Ravens. To say they won in spite of Charlie is absurd.

    To be fair here the Ravens D that Charlie faced was their worst defense in years.........
