Ben Matters More


As important as Troy is to the entire scheme of the Steelers defense, he is not as important as Roethlisberger is to the offense. With no semblance of a running game, the Steelers will have to rely on Big Ben more than ever to move the offense and score points.

If Ben is hurt, they would be in trouble as Charlie Batch will not consistently move the offense. Additionally, linebacker Lawrence Timmons will be a nice addition next week for the defense as he plays with a similar style and a parallel role as Troy does due to his athleticism and intensity.
