Dude, let's see what happens with Ben before we even start thinking about the upcoming season. Lets take a break from football & think about this kid and his life

And all you're worried about is what I'm thinking about... don't try to read my mind. Trust me, it can support more than one thought at a time.

it is a legitimate question. infact one the front office had to address immediately. we are very lucky ben isnt in traction for the next 4 months. if he were the steelers would be questionning whether to ask maddox back or persuing kerry collins.

Easy guys...you both are right. The fan in me is truly sick to my stomach. I'm having a hard remembering what I'm supposed to do today.

But the football business head in me is also thinking...OK Miami is right around the corner. What is Whiz going to do?

But my very very first reaction was wanting to put him down like an injured thoroughbred limping around the final turn for being so utterly freaking selfish to the town, to Cohwer, to the Rooney's and especially all the guys in the locker room who were ready to call him the leader.

YES SELFISH!!!

Ben riding that damn bike was totally selfish and I agree. He didn't think about the organization who has invested millions in him. He didn't think about his teammates. More importantly he didn't think about his family. I thought he was ready to be leader to. But after this I'm not sure.

Whats sad I'm a big Ben Roethlisberger fan. I have watched and rooted for this guy since his college days and I hate the fact this has happen to him. But Ben could have avoided it all by not riding that damn bike.

Rumor has it that Kerry Collins will be coming to Latrobe for training camp........I would feel much more comfortable with him at QB than Charlie Batch

it don't really matter who the qb is if ben isn't ready, willie, duce, and haynes better be ready to carry the ball 98% of the time. cowher had problems trusting ben throwing, i can only imagine how much more he'll lock things up with any other qb

get well soon ben
