A week from now, one of the big stories in the league -- maybe the biggest story in the league -- will be Ben Roethlisberger returning to the Steelers after his four-week suspension. What kind of mood will Roethlisberger will be in? Will he be humbled, chastened?

Only thing that threw up a red flag in this article was the "chopping wood" comment. I'm all for Ben doing what it takes to stay out of trouble and improve his work ethic but does anyone remember the Jaguars punter chopping his shin in their locker room a few years back? Jack Del Rio brought an ax and a block of wood in to reinforce the "keep chopping away" theme for the year. Everyone took a turn taking a whack at the log and the Punter smashed himself in the shin, knocking him out for the year. Let's hope Ben is a little more coordinated. Surprised there isn't a "no wood chopping" clause in his contract.

Haven't you seen Rocky 4? That's old school training.

Although, I think goodell is the russian in this version.

I, for one, hope he does come back focused and remains that way the rest of his career.
