Default Re: Today, I'm relieved Ben played.

and back to the Big Ben playing the game ...


Hell yes, Ben wanted to play... you let him play .. PERIOD. I dont think it is such an aweful thing that we got beat up a little last night... I mean could our offense really have played much more poorly and we still only lost 9 -0 ??? I mean seriously, we should not even have been in the game the way the offense played.. the score should have been around 28-0 or 35 -0 as often as we punted and the field position we kept giving them.
So Ben played and pretty much didnt get it done, the line didnt help him any or do him any favors. Maybe the taste of defeat after such as awesome run we had and got used to is something we needed to wake us up a little bit... BUt after everything Ben has been through... was really good i thought just to see him out on the field, taking some hits, getting the feel for the game back..

I so agree with you! I've been telling my co-workers (since after the game) that I would have much rather lost this game than many of the others coming up. This game is behind us. We got that first loss post-SB out of the way. Yeah, I would have liked to have won, but I'm relieved in (an albeit sick way) that it's over with, and Ben got through his first full game.

On that note..I am sure that Cowher had to determine.."do I knock Bens rust off in this game or in the divisional game next week"...either way Cowher had to think that we may possibly lose Bens first game back. I say GOOD CALL...give me a win with Ben and Davenport next week !!!

Plus he was able to take some pretty good hits without problems. We need to chalk that up to a bad game plain and simple, this SUnday will be much different.

Not to go to far off track here, but I'm a pretty big golfer and I will tell you that the best rounds of golf I've ever had were ones that came after some of the worst rounds I've played. When you play bad it makes you focus and prepair that much more. So with using that logic, I see Ben as well as the team playing much better then they did Monday.
