Yes. I'm thinking it may be a pre-taped interview.

It's difficult to say. His face still looks a little puffy though.

WTF!!!!, No one is going to pay $$$ to interview Ben! At least media outlets with respect!

in all honesty, he looks like he was just dragged out of bed or something in that picture.

Hey he could look alot worse or even :tombstone
Glad to see ( so Far ) that he is going to make a full recover. Thats the most important part. Remember all he did meet a car window up close and personal. We would still look bad, not as GQ as him

The comments underneath the article are nice. :rolleyes:

He looks like a Superbowl champion to me...

The visor seems to be covering up some possible scars. His face looks swollen. He just doesn`t look himself. I would say that it is real!

Has anyone actually gone into the site and read their responses? Yeah, we need some more fans in there, because there's a Bungals fan who is under the mistaken impression that Ben's got brain damage and he's got their Super Bowl trophy. :rolleyes:

Oh, new person here (well, first post at least)

He doesn't look all that bad considering that his face was smashed up against a windshield. On that note, as long as he can throw a football...................

No, its not Ben, its Dr Leo from "What About Bob?". they taped it from his summer home on Lake Winnapesaque

i'm not sure if i'm buying it. it's sort of what i imagined him looking like though.

That's legit, I'm thinking. His eyes are a bit sunken-in, face swollen, and he looks a little pale. He's got makeup on also.

7 surgeons working on your face for 7 hours will have some pretty amazing results. He looks wonderful for what happened to him. He won't be pitying himself at all, by the looks of things, and that's big. Bad accidents can really shake you up mentally.

Guys, this is legit. Channel 4's website has the story. here's a link with a pretty good video that has before and after comparisons.

Well.. He looks as ugly as he did before.. But at least he is going to be able to play out his career... Glad he is finally back in public

Other than the nose, I don't think he looks much different. My 7 year old saw me looking at this photo and said, is that Big Ben....so he couldn't see any difference.

I'm gonna be the first to say it and tall all the a$$hole Bengal fans to shut up! BB, I've never had a problem with you so just do yourself a favor and walk away.

As long as Ben is alive and well, I'm happy. His hair was longer before his accident. Looks like Siss got her wish and he got his hair cut...(lol). :smile:

Just keep in mind that it's a freeze frame from a video. If someone were to freeze frame a video of anyone of else we would probably look a little bit different if not outright goofy. However it's to be expected. With the injuries that he sustained his face is probably still coming out of shock. Give him a few more weeks of healing a little sunshine and he'll look just fine.

I think he looks great in this pic, from the ESPY's...

IMO, he looks much better in this photo. If we didn't know he was in an accident I dont think most people could tell here.

I'm sorry, I'm not one to kiss his ass. I'm happy to see he's safe, but yet he states he will wear a helmet but he's not going to give an answer on if he will ride a bike or not.

Very smart. A few questions, will a helmet stop both of your legs from breaking in half? Will a helmet stop your spine from cracking in half and leaving you a vegetable? It's amazing, everybody made a big deal about him not wearing a helmet. What does that matter when you can mess yourself up with or without a helmet?

My suggestion.........leave the bike alone until you make your millions and retire. Don't be an idiot. If you were smart you would have stated "I'm going to put the bike down until I make my millions and live up to the Rooney's expectations". Yeah, he learned to wear a helmet. Good job buddy. Why not just put the bike down (and your ego a few notches) and just wait until your set and your obligations are over and done with? Has your head gotten that big buddy?

If you have not learned from this experience, I won't feel the least bit of sympathy if it happens again.
