    Take a seat, Ben

    Been absolutely terrible since he came back from injury. That's 2 out of his 3 games back that he absolutely lost the game for us. I'm sick of his drama king "pity me because I'm hurt" attitude. Absolutely no excuse for the way he played today. Just terrible.

    He has screwed up, but when has he asked for pity? Where is your proof of him asking or pity and being a drama queen? The reality is the guy does get hurt. The press dramatizes, and people who jump on that bandwagon dramatize.

    The loss sucks, but Ben is not a drama queen. For God's sake, he had an injury that could have killed him. There was only one similar documented injury in the last 10 years. Yeah, drama.

    I have never seen a player get "injured" and come back into the game 30 seconds later as often as Ben does.

    Ben is not an elite QB. Never has been, never will be. Although he has a couple superbowls wins only proves that he was surrounded by a good team. He sure as hell didn't do it by himself. He can't carry an average team unlike the elite QBs in this league.

    The thing that separates Ben from the super high end QB's is that he doesn't throw timing passes enough. Meaning, he doesn't throw passes with the anticipation of the WR making the break. But Ben is still a top tier QB.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    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.

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

    Since you seems to know can you please enlighten the board on exactly what Haley's offensive staple is? Please enlighten the board.

    EDIT: I sure hell have no clue

    Not really. This team's scoring mediocrity during #7's reign prevents him from being top tier. Yeah, he's had some great moments, but the way he ended this year is truly disheartening.

    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.
