Ben is going through the motions in a stale offense. He looks disinterested.

Add in his release looks slower. That’s why ball is getting tipped so much and he’s behind receivers.


Looks frustrated. He's not shrugging and smiling after throwing pics.

Disinterested, maybe. The rest I don't really see. Curious that we've seen a lot less of Ben calling the shots in no-huddle, this year.

He's had a good number of balls tipped in past seasons. But could be a result of lack of separation, which I'm saying is more about play calling/design.

That could be very on the nose.

Ben, under Arians, RARELY threw short of the sticks. Under Haley, he RARELY throws beyond the sticks. I've always said, if you throw short of the sticks consistently you are playing losing football.

Now that's an interesting speculation. I don't know if I agree but it could be.

His release today looked very timid several times, especially on the ints

He looks like a good QB playing in a complete shit of an offense.

Pay particular attention to it moving forward. Hard to say for certain. It’s just something that I felt I noticed today. Could be wrong.

Plus, A LOT of his passes are wobbly now. He’d uncork some ducks on deep passes in the past but now even the shorter ones that in the past were lasers appear wobbly & lacking velocity.

If it is in fact a factor, it’ll only get worse as the weather does.

ill glady eat crow. but no ben u don't have it anymore...and if he plays his new normal garbage stuff vs chiefs id put landry in the following week..i really believe benching ben could be team beneficial..as with ben hurt team seems to rise up its play all around. maybe that's what is needed. I recall bradshaw benched often and for less reason then current ben.. in fact every qb for steelers pre ben been benched ...ben is first that seems to get a free pass mo matter what he does.... perhaps its time to burst his bubble a bit. I could see ben coming in game at half after a landry jones shit show and rallying team big!

Wow. I actually believed they'd be good this year and challenge for a Lombardi!

But they are close to hitting rock bottom if you will. Let's tip our hat to the Jags.

That always been the case. Ben has never thrown the tightest spirals around.

As I've said repeatedly, Haley's offense sucked until Ben started throwing the ball unbelievably well. Now we're seeing Ben throw the ball like he did in those early Haley years, and seeing similar results.

No, it doesn't.

Get rid of the cuckold anchor around the offense and watch this team become what we thought they could.

Ben is REALLY laboring throwing the ball.

Something is very wrong with him.

Used to throw effortlessly. Now it looks like he's trying to throw a bowling ball.

I guess I’m just noticing it more in the shorter throws than in the past.

Wobbly ball harder to catch too...

Don’t be surprised if the Steelers win next week. This is what they do.

The OL had a subpar game or two, but they are FAR from the problems with this offense.

Playcall and play design and separation. Ben is not hitting bullseyes with darts, but few QB's do so consistently. Ben had a couple of unreal years throwing the football, but he's come back to earth and deficiencies have been exposed.

They should get rid of the pistol formation. Offense does better from play action and Le Veon runs better when he has a running start. Haley's playcalling with 1 yard screens may keep Ben upright but like someone said that it brings a crowd to the ball and its not working. He also needs a better right tackle. Hubbard got abused.

I'm not buying this Ben Sucks now scenerio at all.

I still think Ben is going to wake up and play well this season. If Ben was a Stock, I'd say buy now when the price is low.

Gotta admit I’m tentatively in the camp that Ben is about done. I thought before the offseason 3-4 years, with the retirement talk bumped that to 2-3. Way things are going I’m saying 1-2.

Thing is you look around the league and lots of teams get new life with young players. Steelers are lacking energy now.

Haley is sucking but we need to realize he’s playing art 2’s system. This is what they’ve collectively come up with. It sucks the life out of me just watching it. Yes I do believe this doe# happen to coincide with bens emotional commitment just not being there.

Question is how many good games do they have left? I say draft a qb and rb in rounds 1 and 2.
