Ben is young enough he might actually say something informative about the Steelers' past year rather than spout the usual platitudes.

I bet by Sunday the situation will be that Whiz or Grimm has been announced to be the new HC. In any event, the questioning of a players is usually pretty chummy - the interview of Shawn Merriman this past weekend was so fawning about all they did not do was ask Merriman for an autograph.

It would be different if Costas and Collinsworth were doing the Q&A - I think one reason Cowher did not pick up some easy $$$ on NBC last Saturday was that he did not want to answer any questions about his resignation or future from Costas - Mora Jr. did not look real happy when Costas asked him about his departure from Atlanta.
