After watching the game Monday night between the Steelers and 49ers , its obvious the Steelers should have sit Ben down . Bottom line he should never have been on the field . He was clearly hobbling on one leg and could not push off on his injured leg . While it was a big game for the Steelers to take over the division lead again , there comes a time when you have to look at the big picture . Do you want Ben for the 49er game knowing you already have clinched a playoff spot or do you want him healthy and physically ready to go for those same playoffs ? If the Steelers have no more confidence in Charlie Batch than what there showing , then why have him on the roster ? You have a veteran backup thats started a ton of games , so the experience factor is not a problem . The guy helped win three games for you last season during Bens suspension , so whats the problem ? Only Mike Tomlin can answer that one .
