No question, agreed 100 percent. A reputable poster from steelers.com says he is going to get an MRI on his ankle tomorrow. Did anyone else hear anything about that? Gotta believe unless it is really serious he will try to play through it, but I definitely did not have a good feeling watching him get that taped up at the end of the fourth quarter.

In a postgame interview in the locker room Ben said he's getting an MRI, possibly today.

Looks like we're gonna need this extra rest.

Hopefully the Bengals can help to make that decision even easier.

It's a freak year when you root for the Bengals... and really, really, really root for the Ravens.  Go Bengals and... [*gulp*]... Fins?  Seriously.  If the Pats do go 16-0, which I suppose is imminent, I will shit a bucket of blood.

You think it's a freak year here, consider the poor dolts in Cleveland.  The fans of the "new" Browns hafta root like hell for the "old" Browns who abandoned them for Baltimore.  Poor stupid, stupid bastards.

Everyone thinks that Ben is bringing the O-line for purposes of a vacation.  It's really a business expense.  He really wants them to watch the game and visually what BBR looks like behind a good unit.  See the block, be the block, as it were.

Ben is hands down the MVP of this team this year.  Give him a pass-blocking offensive line, one more receiving threat, and a real third down/receiving back and he'd be unstoppable.

You might as well throw in the kitchen sink.

I actually think that getting Ben more "weapons"  is not a very high priority. Obviously OL is the top need, followed by DL and possibly safety.

Yeah, sure it would be nice to have 3 pro bowl receivers, but ask Indy about what that kind of offensive investment meant for their D. Ask the Pats about how they resign Moss and upgade their LB's and secondary.

Holmes is a star in the making and a certified "weapon". Hines Ward is a 1st down "weapon" , TD maker, and the best blocking "weapon" that plays WR. Heat is a monster in the middle and definately is a "weapon" in the RZ and pretty much everywhere else. FWP is a "weapon". Nate, in his second year of playing has 3 TD's in the last two games. Willie Reid is supposed to be a "weapon". I mean what else does he need as far as "weapons"? The guy has 32 TD's(passes) so far this year, and until recently had the league's leadng rusher in the backfield with him. The only "weapons" BR needs is a decent OL and an OC who doesn't underutilize the "weapons" he already has. Other than that, he already has a SB MVP receiver, a stud up and coming receiver, a stud RB, a stud TE, and good young talent in the pipeline( Nate, Reid, Russell).

The team needs to bolster the LOS units and worry less about getting more skill players, who can't do anything when Ben is on his back..

Well, said. He has plenty of options he just needs more time in the pocket (better OL) and a better playcalling and we'll be unstoppable.

No doubt.  Keep the guy healthy, on his feet, and give him some time, and the sky is the limit.  Even with an above-average receiving corps.
