Pouncey's said his sprain is not as serious as the sprain before the super bowl.

If Ben can play, I say play him

Yeah. Pouncey will play. Then he'll get injured. Again.
It's looking like thats the way his career is going to go. I hope i'm wrong, but its surely not looking good.

The Ravens will lose to The Chargers. Ben will play (as if there is any doubt) as will Pouncy for at least the first half. On the last drive for the 49ers a guy wearing a Fleur-de-lis t-shirt will show up on the sidline blowing a whistle.

I know that everyone hopes and prays that Ben plays, but I'm concerned about the long term ramifications if he plays on that ankle and hurts it more.

I would like to hear something about what's happening in practice with CB and not just Ben walking around in a boot. What are they doing to prepare for the 49ers besides hoping Ben can play.

What is the chemistry like between Batch and our group of receivers. I would love for a HEALTHY Ben to play, let me know what's going to happen if he doesn't and how does Charlie look, b/c he was awful in relief of Ben on Thursday night.

Batch is going to be getting first team reps until Ben is able to practice, if at all. You can't judge Batch's performance against the Browns as what he's capable of. He had to come off the bench in the middle of a series cold without having taken any reps or prepared to play, and he was the only healthy QB dressed at that point, so he had to play conservatively. Of course he will look better Monday night if he has to play.

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.

A potential bye week and home games in the playoffs is the reward for the risk.
