I read this article from Bob Smizik titled "Ben Wants Answers from Rooney". I think Ben has had too much say and influence with Arians and the team is trying to nip it, or have. I belive the next OC will clash with Ben but the O will rise from 21st to somewhere within the top 10 next year, as all the tools are there except for the OL. If they focus on getting some talent on the OL this draft or in FA...I could see this happening.
I included the link to the article below and also included a comment from one of the respondents by the name of Nutting4Xmas. I thing Ben hasn't hit his potential yet, there is so much more he can achieve and let's hope this all helps him get there and the Steelers their moneys worth from Ben. Response from Nutting4Xmas:
"I would imagine Mr. Rooney's response to "what do you want from me" will go something like this:
I want my $100 Million dollar QB to be able to play out the life of his contract somewhere near the level of play he was achieving when I signed him to it. I am sick of watching you limp around the field, the locker room, and the practice facility. I am not paying you 8 figures to have Batch or Leftwich play on Sundays. We stood by you when you were acting like a pompous jerk, nearly killing yourself and then almost getting throwin in jail twice. Now, I am deducting $100K from your first game check. Get out of my office and get on a treadmill."
