Ben calls the plays + hurry-up = we actually score points!

    Wow what a difference it makes when Ben is allowed to run the offense. We actually get yards on 1st and 2nd down, convert 3rd downs and score TDs.

    Having a downfield passing game even opens up running lanes for Najee so he does not have to break 3 tackles to get back to the LOS!

    Let Ben run the offense the rest of the season...we'll probably win more games that way anyway!

    Ben confirmed in the presser that Canada calls the plays during no huddle and gave him credit for calling a great game.

    Also, they couldn’t use the no huddle earlier in the season because the line was too raw so Ben couldn’t call protections.

    I think some of us like myself believe that for years Ben scraps the game plan and goes school yard.

    I think at this point, December 2021, his mind for the game under duress is his most important skill.
    He’s actually a MVP candidate in my opinion.
    That’s why some of us actually want him as Offensive coordinator.
    it’s his body that may not be able to give 100%.

    Aditi said today that watching the Steelers Offense the first 3 quarters was like watching paint dry. She said it wasn't until Ben went with the no huddle that the Offense took off. The last 3 games the Steelers have scored 51 points in the 4th quarter, an average of 17 points. And that includes the Bengals game.

    A week ago I wanted him to go retire and enjoy his life after football. Now I want to see his 4th qtr against the Rats again and again.

    We should all be more appreciative of Ben. He's been one of the most exciting Steelers ever to step on the field.

    Because thats always been Bens M.O.

    What about a couple games ago when he was looking to the sideline after a play got blown up down by the goal line while shrugging his shoulders and a what did you expect look on his face.

    Ben isn’t known to go to bat for his coaches.

    Agree. It’s awesome when we get this Ben. Wish it was more consistent, but hard to expect that at this point of his career.

    Canada, if he is still OC next year wont want Ben back and as I pointed out, Ben wasn’t worried about covering for Canada when he was mocking his play calling.

    We don't really know what either really think. We are watching, and speculating on what we see, and what some reporters (the ones we can trust are saying).
    For all we know He could be shrugging His shoulders, and shaking His head about Not wanting pizza after the game for all we really know. LoL

    You read someone's lips??
    Someone's told You something I haven't heard??
    Don't let Your want of Ben Gone cloud Your decision My friend. You make fun of other guys for this exact same thing all the time.
