    This game might be over by halftime. I hope I'm wrong.

    2 of our best 3 defensive players are out. Only Heyward remains.

    I think the next men up will step up. Steelers win but not pretty.

    Sign up for Game Pass then. All the reruns you can imagine. Maybe you should start a Boycott. Oh wait.......they never pan out. :facepalm:

    We will miss Watt tremendously! Fitzpatrick, not so sure? He hasn’t done much this year

    Agree on Fitz. His production is nowhere near 2019. I will be scolded by Formerscribe by saying this, but Edmunds has been better than Fitzpatrick this year. Fitz is a non factor.

    Most troubling aspect of tonight's game is that it will be played before a Steelers home crowd in LA where they have already lost 2 and tied 1. Could get ugly. :shrug:

    Chargers get Bosa back. Ben will be lucky to survive the game.

    Which game this year would that have been? And how would over thrown, thrown behind, or skipped in passes have helped?

    I'm not sure what you are asking? The point I was making is that Tomlin won't pull Ben unless his heart stops beating, not even sure if he would then.

    I’m asking you to pick a game from this year where you thought Ben was ineffective and the team was better off with the elite play by Mason Rudolph.

    ironically I just got done putting air in all four of my tires so this metaphor really sticks out.

    Raiders and Bengals games. Both games had sunny weather. Steelers were not gonna beat Packers at Lambeau.

    You seem to thinking that I'm somehow saying Ben should get the hook just so Rudolph can play. I'm not advocating that at all. Heck Haskins, Dobbs, Joe Blow QB or whoever plays it makes little difference to me. All I'm saying is that in regards to Ben and Coach Tomlin, Ben doesn't get yanked out of a game no matter what. In this game tonight he has been isolated from the team for 2 weeks, more than likely hasn't done a lot if he was indeed feeling sick last Saturday, mostly likely hasn't been in a game plan meeting this week and yet he will start and most likely play the whole game.

    Historically even when injured, limited mobility to the point of being a statue and with playoff implications Tomlin has still rolled with Ben. When that doesn't happen it will be the sign they are ready for a new chapter.

    How does this a hole know what Tomlin thinks or feels or is doing? If he doesn't actually know, he should keep his pie hole closed and stop putting words into anyone's mouth. After the game, Tomlin said MR put the team into a position to win. That is what Tomlin actually said so who do you think an intelligent person should believe? Find the evidence that he is actually stating what MT thinks or feels. More like he is telling what he thinks and how he wants MT to do the same. Just crap media.

    People like to bash Rudolph for his performance against the Lions. Would Ben have done any better? I don't think so. The game would've ended the same...or maybe worse with a loss instead of a tie.

    Even if they lose, I think it will be a shootout neither defense is good.

    I think Ben would've been more accurate than Mason, and they would've won the game.

    Ben hasn't been very accurate and hasn't made the best decisions all season. It's one of the things we've been bringing up pretty consistently.

    That song has been going through my head ever since the Jax playoff loss.

    When exactly was Edmunds a factor? He did get the one sack. That's about it. Does that make up for being torched relentlessly in coverage?

    Ben’s stats vs Raiders weren’t terrible, could’ve been better, but nothing Any other QB on the roster has put up. Especially with no running game.

    Against the Bengals he was worse. Most QBs when you throw 58 times vs 15 runs is not a winning formula.


    Furthermore, beyond people’s outright contempt for Ben, rarely does the back up come in (for lousy play not injury) and turn the game around. What sitting your QB, except for a blow out, does, is disrupt the offense. Furthermore, consider this, maybe Ben’s poor performances are related to the other 10 guys on the field.

    During the four game winning streak Ben's accuracy was better, and he threw no ints, Mason had like five inaccurate throws.
