hmmm - based one comments by Ben about line never staying healthy and having to plug plays in - check out my new thread with a new set of Rashard's dumb a** comments

I think this guy is starting to talk his way out of the Burgh.

I'm gonna take a shot in the dark here. I have a feeling that this may be a conference call with the doctor, but not Ben's doctor. With the speed at which Ben is moving with his personal life now, I would be willing to bet the wifey is pregnant. Just a hunch.

I don't see the big deal. It is likely having to do with his lawsuit. I don't see the big issue. Events happen in life that take you away from your job. I am sure everyone here has had to leave work early to go to a doctor, go to a funeral, pick up a kid from school, something. I think we can allow Ben an 'excused absense' so he can take care of his own personal life.

They write them so that people like us will fill up ten pages on a discussion board talking about it.

In the biz it's called "A slow news day".

Good enough for some to respond to this. I only put it in here because I've followed Ed for a while and yup - it is slow so kill me.

And by talking himself out of the Burgh (combined with cap issue) I mean Mendy.

Of course - at the current pace he'll have no leverage to get any huge raise in pay anyways so whatever

You're right - I should consult with you his personal friend on these matters before I put something on a message board to just chew the fat on

I'm sensing a little jealousy heading in Ashley's direction.

I think he will play himself out of the 'burgh.

Plus, any team who pays big money for a running back doesn't know what they're doing.

Look at the teams who have high paid running backs: Titans, Vikings, Rams, Panthers - none of them are any good. The drop-off from a Chris Johnson to a Joseph Addai just doesn't compare to the drop-off from Aaron Rodgers to Colt McCoy, or the drop-off from Joe Thomas to John Scott.

The Steelers should cut Mendenhall right now and go get Flozell. No other immediate action could help this team more.
