Were you nervous when you saw him get sacked that first time? It's going to take a little while for me to accept the fact that he will be able to take a serious hit and not be affected.

brett farve took a serious hit from greg lloyd that broke his jaw, also without the bike accident.

weve seen ben take numerous serious hits in his short career. anything that happens from this point on will happen regardless of his accident. it is history.

I took a deep breathe when I saw him go down that time. I was greatly relieved to see him get up so fast. :smile:

Imagine what those hits might have done to favre or collins if they had been fresh off of having thier face put back together. It's a little early to say it's history. I agree that he's got to get past it mentally, and will. I just hope that there is no problem on the physical side.

ben is physically healed from the accident otherwise the dr's or team wouldnt clear him to play. he will not carry around the proverbial "glass jaw" for the rest of his career.

And anyone who's ever broken a bone can tell you you're usually in a cast for about 8 weeks which is roughly how long it's been. And when you get out of that cast it takes a little while for things to get back to normal. I know that he wasn't in a cast, but there is a reason that Cowher is being protective and it isn't because his bones are stronger than they were before. I'm not talking about a "glass jaw" for the rest of his career, I'm talking about a period of time before he can sustain a major, major, hit. that's all. I'm not trying to pick a fight, I just said that it made me a little nervous to see him take that first sack. I'm ready for that feeling to go away. I'm sure it will in a few weeks. Regardless, it sure was awesome to see him out there today which was the whole point of this thread in the first place!!! Maybe we can at least agree on that!:boxing:

ben is a proven quick healer. what would take most people in a cast 6-8 weeks takes him about 4-6. the steelers arent gonna mess around with the "franchise". hes good to go. any injury he may sustain to his face at this point wouldve happened regardless of his accident.

ben is good. he survived his 1st pre season game and now he has an additional week to heal before his next pre season game.

Exactly. And the effects from concussions are cumulative. This is not the Troy Aikman situation.

Pittsburgh has A++ outstanding medical people. And they were ushered into Ben's operating room Code Red.

I think he looks a little leaner.

Great picture. Glad he's back and was able to get involved with some contact. The eyes say it all.
