Default Expect P-Buc to see a lot of action this week.

It won't be because they are picking on him. Ben has trouble throwing when he runs left. So you will see him roll right a lot. He will take his shots at DRobs side too but mainly from the pocket. Hopefully we can get him to run left more often, and maybe pick off a floater.

My gut feeling tells me that the Steelers aren't going to run the ball very much this game. LOL just kidding.

Ben is right handed so why wouldn't he throw better to his right?

The numbers last year disprove that silly NFL network notion anyway. The preseason meant nothing. Look how every announcer was saying Ben can't throw accurately based on the preseason.

Throwing left and wide left last year

87 completions out of 128 passes for 67.9 % completion percentage for 1203 yards 6 TDs and 4 int. Looks fine to me.

I am not talking about throwing left. I am talking about throwing while running left. Big difference.

Standing in the pocket and throwing left he has no problems.
