There are people posting all over the internet that Roethlisberger is out with the flu. I haven't seen anything on ESPN so I certainly hope this is just a web rumor. Does anyone have any other info?

Every super bowl a player gets the sniffles and then all these rumors start.

Actually, there is a rumor he retired and isn't going to play anymore. Damn, its too bad, we couldn't have him for just one more game.

He went with Elvis to his home planet. Apparently it's a once in a lifetime guided tour and Ben decided the SB can wait.

Craziest thing.... I had a dream on Friday night about the game, and Leftwich was playing QB.

Roethlisberger is 'gonna be fine'

Ben Roethlisberger (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=1181) - QB - PIT (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/content/clubhouse_news.aspx?sport=NFL&majteam=PIT) - Feb. 1 - 10:04 am et ESPN's John Clayton confirms that Ben Roethlisberger "is gonna be fine" for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup.
Roethlisberger, who is not on the injury report despite having an X-ray on his rib last week, will start. He will probably put up 25-32 attempts in the game. The Cardinals' pass defense surrendered an NFL-most 36 passing TDs during the regular season. The next closest (New England) gave up 27. Feb. 1 - 10:04 am et

They have him confused with Leinhart who did have the flu.

It's also been reported that the entire cardinal team has cat scratch fever, and we all know how deadly that is to a bird! :chuckle:

I'm pretty sure even if he had the flu, he'd play... even if he was blowing chuncks.. he'd play... he's no Tony Romo :wink:

I think I'd pay to see him toss his cookies all over a Cardinal player though! It would be epic!

I heard he is playing 36 holes over at Disney World and might make it for the second half.

..... I'd rather see Polamalu KNOCK the cookies out-of a Red Bird receiver early in the game and set the tone for the day

No, he's not dead. He's just having a hemroidal flare up.

Really? Well I heard he had a WICKED hang nail on his throwing hand.....
