    Was it the offense line or Ben style of play: Ben chooses NOT to be a system QB, what I mean is a plant back foot, ball out within 1/2 second afterward. (i.e Brady, Manning, Brees) and for that reason the O-Line looks worst them it ready is: In fact the last two years Ben got hurt holding onto the ball (ie. trying to extent the play).

    The reason he does this because he isn't great reading the defense and knowing where to throw the ball, without see the receiver open. Ben dosen't throw the receiver open, as much as he has to see the receiver open.

    And he doesn't seem to want to learn to either.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Don't try to tell me its the O-lines fault. You only get about 3 seconds in big boy ball to throw the rock.

    Then people will bitch about that too.

    How about we get a real OC who values a franchise QB instead of just being an owner's puppet?

    Didn't they already make a couple movies called "Dumb & Dumber"? Too bad, I could've recommended the stars.

    8-8 with the #1 defense is far from acceptable in my book.. Ben started hot then fizzled, I blame him as to why this team went nowhere this season, some very bad decisions.. Flame away boys!!

    Check the stats before injury and after injury. Check Defensive stats in 4th Qtr vs. the rest of the game.

    Check Ben's INT's first half vs second half! The dude gave two if not 3 games away that sealed our fate.

    I'd be careful signing him to another long term deal unless he can prove he can stay healthy and make better decisions!

    Not as long as it could've been if he got rid of the ball as quickly as other franchise quarterbacks

    Learn to watch everything that's going on on the field. Don't just stare at the quarterback and make an idiotic analysis about how Roethlisberger ruins plays by playing backyard football.
    speaking of idiotic analysis...

    I heard on ESPN that sometimes Eli has less than 3 seconds
