I hope you're right man. Ben isn't having very good luck though.

1.) i think things will be all right. The D is just going to have to brutalize Miami and hope the O-line can protect Willie and Charlie. You know they are going to key in on Parker. Hell, we may even win the opener and have him back from the long delay before week 2....just one thing....

2.) How much more weight can he drop? He had lost about 15 pounds- so how thin can he get???

Just wanted to say that I hope Roethlisberger gets better soon. I want him under center when we come into town in week 3. It would definitely diminish some of the rivalry if he didn't get to play.
Best of luck on a speedy recovery.

It goes like this:

The future is completely out of our hands. The only thing that we can influence is our attitude, how we handle the next week.

If we go into it with confidence and he screws up, at least he didn't screw up our whole week as well. If we get all worried today and he screws it up, we blew a whole week AND Sunday. But if we are confident, and he does well, we can all say, "See? It was all cool all along."

The only 100% bad thing is to get all down now.

Batch is a hometown guy, he'll be just fine.

I had a kidney removed laparoscopically May 16th. Waiting for the diagnosis took over a month. During that period I could have either worried myself sick that it was bad news, or gone ahead living figuring everything was probably OK. Now, it turned out bad, and I had to have my kidney yanked, but it could have been worse, too; it could have metastasized (and then I'd have been f*cked). I had a pretty good time during that month. And even if the news was 100% bad, I wouldn't have wanted to waste time wringing my hands over it beforehand.

I was back at work on June 9th, and full time June 12th. Now granted I'm not playing in the NFL, but Ben's not a 52 year old fat man either.

All will be OK. And if it isn't, we'll deal with it then. If we lose next week, then we know what to do for the week after that.


Tom

Look on the bright side......at least he wasn't shot outside of his house by an offduty police officer.

Now this is the greatest post!!! I was on another message baord and the hate directed toward the Steelers and Ben was unreal. I am always battling everyone. They love to bash the Steelers when I am around and being a woman has a little something to do with it I'm sure. I never bash other teams. If anything I point out wekanesses and strengths in my team and take it in. The only team I would ever bash is the Cowboys but ever since Parcells came on board I haven't because I respect him as a coach. The TO thing, being in Philly, is a low blow but that wasn't Parcells. That was strictly to satisfy Jerry Jones' grand canyon sized ego.

Enough rant! You are a true football fan. One who doesn't need to bash or wish cancer on Ben (yes one jerkoff did that today) because you want the game to be the best. Kudos to you! And Get Well Ben!

Hope Big Ben gets well soon, wouldn't want to rush back from something like this. Charlie will hold his own until Ben is ready.
