Re: Pouncey and Ben expect to play Monday
If the Ravens are going to lose it will more than likely be this week against a Chargers team who, we know , is always a force to be reckoned with in the last quarter of the season. I actually see it as a good possibility that the Ravens will lose this weekend, and I am often right about my predictions, I have the gambling victories to back it up :-D. Anyhow, if that does happen I do see the X-factor in the monday night game being whether a relatively healthy Roethlisberger plays. We know the 49ers have a great run defense so we can't rely on the run to heavily.
I would just hate to see big Ben go out there on a swollen ankle and have a linebacker roll over on it or something, then we'll be debating "will roethlisberger be back in time for the playoffs?" I don't think that's a debate ANY of us want to have, unless of course we are ravens fans or something.
