Ravens already crying that forward progress was stopped and AB's reach shouldn't have counted.
And how many times did their RB's were stopped but OL-man jumped on the pile to keep it moving, screw the crying, bring back old timer football.
Exactly. I mean I get that they're frustrated but that's football.

Do they rest everybody next week?

Ben, Bell and Brown should sit - might be an issue with Brown sitting if he has contract incentives for leading the league in receptions and yardage - right now he has 106 receptions (Fitzgerald second with 102) and is 70 yards behind Hilton for yardage - maybe Steelers could pay off on incentives

When Ben played in the last regular season game of the 2008 season he ended up getting carried off the field on a stretcher (I thought he had been paralyzed) - he would have missed the first playoff game if the Steelers had not earned the bye

I would definitely sit Ben, Bell and Brown. Bell should sit because of his workload. Ben should sit because of his health. Brown should sit because you would get him in danger by playing Landry Jones.

I would also sit Harrison and Ryan Shazier. They need to keep Deebo fresh and make sure Shazier doesn't injure himself in a meaningless game.

Sounds good and i'd also sit Green and Tuitt assuming they'd be ready. Fine with young guys like Burns, Hargrave, Davis, James, and Rodgers playing. They need their reps but those guys you mentioned I agree should sit.

Time for the career bench warmers to suck it and get some green on their jersey's.

I would start that other Burger too, and probably the water boy if need be.

This is what I keep thinking back to. I wonder if Tomlin does play most of the starters. I hope they do rest Harrison.
