I'd appreciate it - thanks!
do you think cowher is going to come right out and say i'm rushing ben back. My point is a coach with cowhers experience should know better then put bens career in jepority like this. Ben has alot of maturity and bill needs to be a father figure and sit this young man down and explain to him he is putting his young career on the line. One more concussion could end this young mans career. I understand hometown you have a deep love for cowher for what he HAS done for this franchise as well as I do. I just see everything wrong with his decision making regarding ben this year

D - you are still basing your opinion on this topic on nothing more than that - your opinion, which I do respect but totally disagree with as you know. No disrespect intended here, hon, but that just isn't good enough for me to change my completely opposite opinion. For the record - it has nothing ot do with my respect for Cowher. Maybe Ben's own father should be a "father figure" and kick Ben in the ass for being so damned stubborn (and yes, irresponsible) - starting with the day he decided to ride a crotch rocket cycle without a helmet which started this entire unfortunate chain of events.

I think if you read the thread on the remarks made to Ben by one of the Atlanta defenders, it might become a little more clear.

I do not believe this for one second. There is NO WAY Cowher would put winning above any player's health - no way whatsoever. Do you honestly think he would put his reputation on the line in this manner? On top of that, do you think the doctor who examined Ben on Monday and after his accident, who is one of the heads of the UPMC neurology department, is going to put HIS status and reputation on the line by clearing him to play when he isn't ready? It isn't going to happen. So if the doctors say Ben is ready to play, if Ben feels he's ready to play and Cowher feels he's ready to play, then he's going to play, whether we agree with the decision or not.
