I get it. We want Ben to star in a Beach Body workout video. It isn't happening.

What we do know is that BR was the best QB in football over the 2nd half of the season and bailed that abortion of a defense out on numerous occasions. The Pittsburgh Steelers energies right now should be totally focused on fixing the D by any means necessary.

Yeah Ben's diet hindered his play this season. He was total garbage and was lucky the team won in spite of him.


I do wish that Ben would do more than kayak in the offseason in terms of getting his body ready for the season, however. Especially now that he's getting older.

And you think that's all he does because.... ?
You don't think he has a diet to get his body ready because...?


He definitely golfs at least 4 days a week. Probably get's a lot of good walking in on those days.

Actually you seem not to get it.

Do you know what presenting an opponent's position in the most extreme, caricatured way possible is called?

It's an informal fallacy, by the way. Appeal to the extreme.

If only he could have the lean muscle mass of Brady Quinn.

He had 5 TDs against the best defense in the league (close to 6 but one was a lateral to Bell). Of all the things to bitch about this off season, Ben's body fat is at the bottom of the list.

We should be focused on that dumpster fire of a defense or we are going nowhere.
BR would have a double chin if he were anorexic.


You guys act like Ben had a sqare-lantern jaw when he was drafted and has morphed into Jabba the hutt.

Hope the pics came through.

Sorry I don't see the fat tub of shit that many of you see in Ben. None of us has any clue what he does in the offseason or what he eats. I think his early season struggles were due to a non-disclosed shoulder problem. He was pushing the ball at times and it floated. It appeared that he got right mid-season and his arm was back. Hopefully he won't have any problems coming into camp this year. Need to fix the mess that is the D.

I don’t care what he looks like.

I can tell he has been pretty sloth like trying to move at times.

I don’t expect Mike Vick out there or even Benjisan circa 2005. At the same time, I don’t believe he does all he can to maintain his mobility a bit better.

A lot of first downs could be had out there if he was a bit more nimble and took advantage of a defense focused on other things.

I actually agree with you but didn't post pics. He does seem to not run effectively, though, and lost some quickness.

But like I said, he would look fat and lazy to those that make judgements based on the roll of fat under his jaw. Which he's had since he came into the league.

Regardless of where you stand on the subject, it's inarguable that as he gets older his fitness and conditioning becomes more and more important. At least, if he plans to stay healthy and keep playing at an elite level.


I think a more accurate way to put this, would be to state that as he gets older, it will take more attention to diet and exercise for Ben to maintain his normal level of fitness. He's been a pretty durable doughboy thus far, and really, that's all he needs to be.


So Ben should do what Tomlin does and just get by on talent alone. I see.


No, thats what he WAS doing before hella-smart Haley forced him to start developing and using his brain. We can only hope he retains Haley's lessons moving forward.

I don't need Ben to have a six pack or to model for GQ.

I want him to be 5% more fleet of foot in the pocket.

That may be the difference between a great play and a season ending disaster.

Dan, with all due respect, I ran the numbers as well.

We need him to be 7.5% more fleet of foot.
