Re: Should Ben play hurt against the Ravens?
I say keep Ben on the sidelines.
We only lost by 3 points last time and may have won had Leftwich not taken himself out (at least as far as passing was concerned) by breaking his ribs on a needless dive into the end zone. I figure that after Batch demonstrated that his arm isn't the same anymore, Haley should be able to design a game plan to allow for that and with a solid showing from the defense, we have just as good a chance to win without Ben.
Even if Ben is "medically cleared", that usually doesn't mean 100% and to put him out there now just makes him a target and why risk ending his season (or worse)?
