    I hope they trade Ben. They don't use him except when it's last 2 minutes.

    First down at our 46 we run 4 plays in a row. Why not Ben then?

    First drive of the half after a turnover, more running.

    You can't expect Ben to bail them out every week in 2 minutes. You can't.

    They should have went to OT and taken their chances.

    The OC **** the sheets today, worst game called by haley all year. Very disappointing. Watch, they'll blow out Clevaland by 30 next week becuase it doesn't matter.

    Isn't timing passes part of what makes an elite QB? No doubt he is a good QB but not elite. As long as he has a good team around him he can win but anything less then good or great he can't carry the team to victory.

    I disagree. Do you see what you are doing? Blaming the loss on one player. ONE PLAYER. Yes, get rid of Ben, we would have won by 21 points. This team has all kinds of problems.

    I'm glad the season is over. Didn't want this team and Ben to look silly in the playoffs.

    Question, what problems did we have besides Ben and the offensive line?

    They had no real running game today. And the offensive line's play was horrible.

    the first thing they need to do is get a real O-line coach who will bring in a better scheme and new conditioning too.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    And I bet he completed 75 percent of the "timing passes" he threw today. Timing passes are not a staple of the Haley offense.
