Default Roethlisberger Will Play

It may not come as a shocker to many of us but it was just announced on Sports Center: Monday Night.

i expect him to be rusty. possibly 2 int's. he cant panic (nor should the fans) if he is, and show the resolve he always has in the 4th quarter.

Ben will be rusty but unlike his return for the Monday nighter in Indy last year I do not believe he will still be working through an injury that will hamper his performance.

The safe bet would be to run the ball, but for reasons including match-ups I look for a return to the playoffs strategy and a fair amount of passing on first down from the start tonight.

Keep them guessin I would recommend. Let Ben get the kinks out early I think we just need to keep the jags from feelin like they control the game. Force them to become anxious.

Ben is a gamer. I wouldn't be shocked if he comes out firing on all cylinders. He has practiced all week. So who knows Ben might just shock us all tonight. For the thought of us just trying to run the football tonight. Then we will lose. We have to pass the ball tonight to create some running room for Fast Willie tonight.

We go into this game with the same gameplan we used in the playoffs last year, me thinks.

Go with the ESPN story. Their main goal is to have breaking news first, while NFL network just wants to get it right.
