Did you miss Ben’s radio show today?

He joined The Cook and Poni Show Tuesday as the Steelers are coming off a much needed bye week.

“Sometimes there are good times and there are not so good times. This was a good time for not just me but for everybody feeling like we are going to have potentially a full strength team coming out of this, a late season bye with 5 gamesto go. It’s time to dig our heels in and make a push.”

Ben says the focus is now to get this group to playit’s best football in the final five regular season games. He said he remembered what last year felt like needing help to get into the playoffs.

“We hold our own destiny in our hands. I want us to have to win every single game the rest of the way out because I remember last year after the last game and going home and sitting there watching I believe it was the Chiefs that missed that field goal that kept us out of the playoffs. It’s not fun to have your destiny in someone else’s hands. We control it so why not make it all about us.”
