    I don't blame him for TEN and OAK. He did all he could throughout those games, but the defense kept allowing their offenses to keep up. Since then it became the opposite with the defense not allowing any points but the offense not being able to score any.
    Yeah I don't blame him for those games either, however he had chances in both to be clutch, and my point was he just hasn't been that clutch this year in game winning drive opportunities. Maybe we have such a high standard for him (or I do), because of what he's done in the past I almost expect him to drive us down every time when we need it.

    Wait, you're blaming that on Roethlisberger? I only saw the last few minutes of the game and here's what I saw:

    - attempting a 50+ yard FG at Heinz Field when they should have punted
    - not kneeling down and going into overtime after getting the ball back at our own 10

    Two incredibly stupid decisions. There's a time to be aggressive and a time to be conservative. In this case, being aggressive was just plain stupid.

    Not too much to look at in this years class. I kind of like Aaron Murray though for next year maybe

    I know we have some definite needs but just think it is time to start looking for his backup/ replacement

    He has minimum 5 years left at a good level. We need a back up not replacement

    The more I reflect, the more I believe that Ben should have been put on IR after his injury. They say it takes about six weeks for a dislocated rib to heal, and more time after that just for an athlete to be ready to play again. Six weeks from November 12 is December 24, the day after the Steelers were eliminated from the playoffs. I just think he came back too quickly, though given the QB situation the Steelers were dealing with by the end of November, they were probably screwed regardless. To me, the 2012 Steelers are like the 2011 Bears: a playoff-caliber team that missed the playoffs after serious injuries to their most important players.
    "...more talking went on between us all until [Roethlisberger and his entourage] left the bar. Then I seperated with [name redacted] and the other girls and went with another group, and everything else happened, and I was told about it this morning and felt I needed to give my statement. Looking back and hearing all of the details, it seems to me that it was a set-up, and so I think this needed to be told."
