    They will get to see Ben's offense forced on MR because they won't scrap a game plan on Saturday or seek to reinvent the wheel. Very little chance that beyond 15 scripted plays that they have anything ready for Rudolph

    Rudolph better play good. A lot of people on here rag on Ben all the time. He won 4 games straight no INTS. That's impressive to me.

    Man you saw 2019 right? That kid ****ing SUCKS!!!!!! We are not winning a playoff game or championship for at least 15 years if this bull**** happens. We are not drafting Kenny Pickett either.

    I’ll bet Tomlin doesn’t allow Mason to do anything. It will be dump offs and screens. Mason probably throws 3-5 passes past 10 yards all game.

    Well...!!!


    You have called for him to play. Let us see what you see in Mason that many of us do not... or having a difficult time in for my case.

    Am I the only one suspicious about this?

    Ben banged up. Can't even practice. No official injury report really. Now, all of a sudden he's in the protocol.

    Good way to sit him without admitting to the league you lied about his injury status...

    So if we beat a winless team with MR, does that mean the Steelers will just hand him the keys next season and assume that it's dynasty time?

    If so, losing this game wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. :cool:

    I wish we could win another championship within the next few years. It’s just…we can’t.

    My biggest concern is the possibility of others popping hot with these crazy ass tests that are being recalled. Lame!

    For me, it would be because I live in Baltimore. They would have a field day.

    Quick, someone check on STD!

    This isn’t as bad as some are making it out to be. Rudolph got some extra practice in with Ben sitting out for 2 days. Playing against Detroit you couldn’t ask for a better scenario for Rudolph to get a start.

    Yes, just like last year. Mason gets thrown in with one arm tied behind his back, not knowing he is starting during the weeks practices, limited Wrs, and if he doesn't knock it out of the park, the Mason haters will come out saying i told you he sucks and where is the 1st round bust that has never played worth a crap including the last preseason game where he was horrible.

    Who do you think has ben running the offense in practice every time the INJ Report says Ben-DNP?

    I can't wait to see what Canada will bring to the table on Sunday.

    Will we see Watt and Najee run the I-Formation?

    Yes, another attempt with limited preparation as the designated starter and his two best WR's gone. Yah, its all on him to make his resume. The kid never gets the break he deserves and gets the start at the last minute. I hope he knocks it out of the park and Ben rides the pine for the duration. JMO>

    It will be the return of the power running game with a vertical passing game like we saw in Ben's younger days.

    For all you fantasy football geeks out there looking for a WR Start Washington. Washington could have a monster game with Claypool out.

    I think there is a big difference between a backup QB running the offensive plays in practice that are designed for Ben and running the offense plays in practice knowing your going to be starting next game and practicing plays designed for him.
