Look, if Willie Parker is out with a bad knee, and Heath Miller with a bad ankle, what the hell is Ben playing with a separated shoulder????? The poor guy had a terrible day. He WILL ALWAYS SAY YES,he's ready to play, but for God's sake get him out of there to rehab his shoulder. The interception before the end of the half was the dumbest play. You don't pass from your own 16 with a minute thirty to play. Why didn't they run on 3rd down and then punt the ball away?? The goaline stand when they stuffed Moore 3 times was pretty stupid too. I know it's a team game, but the coaching staff should be making better decisions in a lot of areas. If you can't tell, I'm very upset they lost.

I agree that the playcalling was bad. I listented to the game on the radio with the tv on, but no sound, and the radio guys were critical of the playcalling. And they don't often get on the coaches.

I totally agree. the play calling was a disgrace. We threw the damnball 42 times! It was wet, cold and our qB was dinged up...so we come out passing(?) The steelers will not do well with this OC. they need to dump Arians next season.

Your 102 million dollar QB lost the game with his poor performance. Boo Hoo Hoo it was wet and cold. Be a man you wuss.

The Steelers sure didn't look very good Yesterday, I caught the last 10 mins of the game. I'm sure the Ravens fans will be all over the boards this week Just a squaking. The best the Browns can do is play spoiler now. It would be cool if the could knock the Titans off their high horse, but I don't see it comming. Buffalo looked pathetic yesterday as well.

If you read the post I was commenting on it being wet and cold, hence my objection to the pass first approach to the game. Do you really have a brain or do you just fake it? Fool.

Hey Bernie, I think the problem is with the coaches. First Tomlin should not have started ben, he is injured. Second, Bruce Arians is a horrible OC. He calls plays in the second half like we are down 3 scores. Pass, pass, pass, punt. or sometimes run, pass, pass, punt. This guy is just rotten. We had a lead to protect and all he can do is call a running play up the middle and then after a gain of 1 yard pass on the next play. This is not Steeler Football that's for sure.

The pass worked until the QB made some bad throws. He is a pro and should be able to make these passes. The weather does'nt matter. If you are so smart why are you not coaching? You monday morning, armchair quarterback, wussy boy from Butt-town.

whatever douchey. I can see from your posts that your grasp of the game is zero to none. The pass worked for exactly 3 drives...Ben had 4 ints...the colts scored off 3 of them...got math? ding dong.

I can see by your posts that your grasp on your crotch is too tight. Did you happen to see Moore running into the brick wall at the goal line 3 times? Got eyes? nitz

The only difference is Ben did'nt throw the superbowl away and he got the big contract.

At least they still control their own destiny - Much more than I can say about Cleveland. Arians can look like a genious one week and a clown the next go figure, Glad we got rid of him, but replaced him with someone worse. Bad week for sports My Sabres lost twice this week, Browns,need I go on

The Colts changed their defense to stop the run. Forcing the Steelers to pass. Ben threw some bad passes and lost the game. He even took the blame.

I'm not debating whether ben had a bad game. I think he had a horrible game. I'm saying the OC called a crappy game against the one of the worst run defenses in the league. 42 passes and 24 rushes...it doesn't make sense. he called the game like they were down 3 scores.

He wasn't bad the first half.

true enough, but he got worse as the game went on which makes me think he is playing more injured than anyone realizes.

I share your theory. it's over ten years and I'm still not over it. He threw two ints and then got a sweet deal with the jets for 6 million for two years. first year he has a "back" injury and sits out the season. next year he has another "injury" and sits out the season. Then he is let go. O'Chokel got paid 6 million in salary and who knows how much else to throw those picts. just my paranoid opinion but I'm sticking to it. lol.
