Default Re: Big Ben on PST about new helmet

Eitherway the kid is going to wear whatever helmet he feels comfortable with. He doesn't seem very concerned about a facial injury (broken jaw) and I don't exactly see the Steelers training staff voicing their opinions or concerns on what type of helmet he should or shouldn't wear. So, sport whatever makes you comfortable.

I'm sure that Cowher and Co have looked at the advantages and disadvantages of the helmets along with Ben and his doctors, and I'll bet even his Mom! I'm sure he's gotten the advise on how to best protect himself AND be comfortable...I can't imagine that he wouldn't follow it now.

While I agree here that this is ultimately his decision, I would think after all he has been through, he'd rather be safe than sorry. He threw caution to the wind once before and it came around to bite him in the behind. I'm just going to have to trust his judgment here and hope he doesn't get an uppercut to the jaw by an overzealous defender.

You would think that not feeling like your wearing a helmet would be a plus for Ben. Also from everything I have heard his jaw is supposed to be stronger now, so I'm sure he can take an upper cut to the Jaw. He's a Big Boy!

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

I would have to say wear what he feels comfortable with. Believe BEN is still BEN, He aint going to change for anybody. That is what makes him special...If he says he cants see I dont want him throwing to the defender instead of our targets becuase he didn't see them...His line will do a great job of protecting him...
