“We had a chance to win the game and I blew it.” — Ben

“I’m not going to question what No. 7’s done. He’s out there fighting for us, he’s our leader. I have two Super Bowl rings because of that type of play. Everybody remembers Santonio Holmes in the back of the end zone. I’m never going to question the way he plays because he’s out there fighting.” — Larry Foote

From Ben’s post-game interview:

What was going through your mind immediately after the loss?

Disappointment, pain, letting a lot of people down and that doesn’t feel good! I need to play better!

When asked how “things unfolded” for the team as the game progressed –

We’ve just got to do better, we’ve got to move the ball and stop getting behind the chains and making it hard on ourselves.

On what he thought the problem was –

It was hard to really get going. We never make excuses, we’ve had a lot of injuries to deal with, but something we’ve always done well is fill in, and we did things…we had a chance to win the game, but I blew it.

On the play of his offensive line –

I feel that we have a lot of really good guys out there on offense, they played well. They need more play and better play from the quarterback.

Can you believe that the Steelers will not be going to playoffs this season?

We should be, if it wasn’t for me.
