    @Buf, vs. MIA

    Unacceptable. Inexcusable. Reckless. Arrogant. Flabbergasting.

    Just reported he showed up at the presser in walking boot. Hurt on last series he played in. Says he should be fine for Kc

    I'd wait for the report tomorrow before souring an otherwise excellent win.

    Damnit! *sigh*

    There was absolutely no reason Ben should have been out there that late in the game, or any of our Big 3 for that matter.

    Now this is something else we have to worry about. :(

    Tomlin needs to live in his fears sometimes.

    With that point in the game no reason Jones could not have managed the game and if Tomlin does not have the confidence that he could have then let him go now

    That was just stupid. There is no way Roethlisberger should have been on the field for that drive. I'd be surprised if he doesn't play next week, but I'd also be surprised if he is 100 percent.

    Tomlin did also say no significant injuries...


    Personally I'd keep Ben in a walking boot all the time

    Tomlin needs his ass kicked from Pittsburgh to Kansas City for still having Ben in there that late.

    I'm pretty sure any random player on the roster could have thrown that last stupid pick that Ben did. But no, let's keep our injury prone starting QB in a game that is so long over. Mike Tomlin, super genius....

    Of course he'll play, he'll just have less mobility and be even less accurate then he has been of late.

    Oh, I have no doubt about that. The question is, how effectively will he play???

    They don't put a player in a walking boot on his own diagnosis.

    I had thought it was his shoulder. This is probably a smoke screen and they're masking the arm injury with a boot to try and move the focus away from his arm.

    Either way, this was an asinine play to run in that situation....hand the ball off again and punt it!
