Default ben is an selfish moron.... let charlie play and SIT!!

why is this guy telling the coaches he can play when he CANT ?? I tell you, he is a selfish moron who wants to play regardless!

Anyone think we would be 2-5 with batch as starting qb since week 1 ???

Everybody's entitled to thier opinion......and we''ve now heard yous 3 or 4 times now.

After 6 posts, do you have any else enlightening to say besides "Ben is a selfish moron"???

Players always think they can play - if they did not have that mindset they would not be pro athletes.

It is the coach's job to tell a player when they are mistaken. Cowher takes the hit here, not Ben.

STFU, troll. Last I checked, the Head Coach has the final say on a football team. Plus, Ben always plays horribly on his 1st game back. And surprise, surprise, he's usually lights-out-good after that.

he said it,bill said it, and the doctors cleared him. he was ready to play 80%. whether raiders fans want to admit it or not he definitaly wasnt 100%, that is why he threw into triple coverage. he is ready.

i am in shock people are saying we should sit Ben. what the hell is wrong with you people. EVERY QB has bad games.....as Peyton Manning (his games are only bad in the playoffs tho, so which would you rather have).

Roeth should not have played but I couldn't agree more that is the Coach's call. If he didn't want to play I'd question him.

And with that said....can the guy stop getting hurt!

Year 1...AFC Title game
Year 2...Super Bowl title
Year 3....Motorcycle Wreck, Apendicitis, Concussion.....


...Look at what the kid has done. Cut him some slack. Every QB has years like this early on where they make mistakes and its a little rough. Ben is just having his after winning the Super Bowl. Besides with all the pressure this kid is under right now, after all he has been through...the last thing he needs if for his own fans to turn on him. No matter what Ben is the future. Nuff said. Support him, believe he will get the job done.

while i definately dont think ben is a selfish moron i do think that you made a good point that had batch started one or more of those lost games we would more than likely not be
2-5 but now that we are here id like to see ben start the rest of the season. He should be back to 100% by now and a win over the broncos would really jumpstart his confidence. while its still a long shot, ben starting against denver is the only way we make the playoffs.
