But I can't bring myself to say that I agree with a writer from Fox "Sports"

Wonder if he had to stay up all night to come up with this great insight?

Still, his point is well-taken.  If we can't block, it'll be pretty hard for Ben to continue his success.

That's part of the reason I probably would've waited until next year to re-up Ben, since he'd still have a year left on his contract.  

I guess that's apparently not the "way things are done", but I want to see what his health is like after this upcoming season.  There's no easy upgrade in sight.

That pick of Timmons in R1 last year is starting to look really, really awful.

I don't care if Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy are black. Good for them. But that doesn't change the way I feel about them. The longer we keep looking at guys like Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith as "BLACK HEAD COACHES" as opposed to just "coaches" the longer race will continue to be a problem. --DoctorJohnnyFever

OK, I'll play Devils Advocate.  

He did say arguably the best player.  He has been to the pro bowl 7 times, which has been well documented lately.  Yes, the line coulda sucked with him in there.  He can realistically only block 2 guys at one time.  If the rest of the schlubs can't block anyone else, Roeth is still gonna get pancaked.

Arguably the best player?  Yes.  $40 million dollar man?  No.

Pro Bowls are overrated. Faneca was not our best player last year, and hasn't even been that good in the last two. Ben is what separated us from a losing record.

I think I automatically want to disagree with anything PittPA writes any more just because that fucking avatar pisses me off.

So, fuck you, PittPA!!!

If the Steelers wait till next year it probably costs them more money to sign him. Now was the time to do it. Nothing to complain about here.
