    True but pitts press whined in an attempt to force the officials to monitor the Broncos defense closely so they will have to be very careful.

    Yes that's true but his arm is over the top and past the lineman. Can't tell if he just tipped the ball or not . No clear evidence either way. But my eyes ain't the greatest

    If thats a rope to you then you're easy to impress as far as QB play goes.
    That pass was most definitely not "on a rope." Wow, that is the first time I watched that video and paid attention to the ball. You can very easily see that it has a horrible wobble to it. It got there-off target and wobbly.

    It was an absolutely terrible throw.
    On a rope, little to no arch, and the ball that was "placed about a mile away", hit the receiver in the hands. It wobbled because Carlos Dunlap tipped the ball. Didn't you see that? Or maybe you are thinking about another play. You're video is a bad angle. And it's bad quality as it looks like somebody videotaped a television with a smartphone. Look at the actual television broadcast, at 6:30.

    But, I get that you want to naively believe that Roethlisberger is injured. What Broncos fan wouldn't? Unfortunately, I think we would be better off facing a healthy Landry Jones than an "injured" Roethlisberger.

    Should be interesting.

    The pass that Roethlisberger threw to Antonio Brown, where Brown was hit by Burfict, was 20+ yards, on a rope. Hardly ANY arch to that pass at all. And that came AFTER the "supposed" injury. Roethlisberger is just fine. Antonio Brown who is in the concussion protocol will have a miraculous recovery, and will be just fine this weekend. Guaranteed. The only Steeler player that may not play is DeAngelo Williams.

    Great for them...Now it's up to our defense to make sure they're hearing footsteps.

    Right before they fade to black. Make Pittsburgh look like a Bumble Bee on the receiving end of a windshield! I cannot stress enough how important it will be to establish and maintain a physical dominance for 4 quarters Sunday.

    That being said, I don't buy any of this for a second. They'll both be considered game time decisions and they'll both play. Hopefully the Broncos see through this crap too.

    He clearly looked limited during the game, we'll see how much he heals up.

    It's all good, I didn't know if it was intentional on your part... but the way it was posted implied that Brock had been demoted down to QB3 and that's not what is going on here.

    As far as Ben is concerned, after hearing the reports on the NFL Network, he is just fine, as is Antonio Brown. I look for Pittsburgh to be at the top of their game. And judging by how they beat us 3 short weeks ago, they won't be counting on the running game where they had 23 net yards against us.
