Thumbs up Words from Ben

http://www.bigben7.com/blog.aspx?emailid=200534

From his Web Site"


July 17th, 2007

Hello everyone,

I hope this recent blog finds everyone doing well and getting excited for training camp and the season. I know it has been awhile since I have been on here to let you all know what?s been going on with me. There?s been a lot this off-season...

Recently, I have been to the ESPY's in LA, played in the American Century Golf Classic in Lake Tahoe with Carson Palmer, Vinny Testaverde, Ray Romano, Vinny Del Negro and others, and went to my sister?s graduation in Findlay (just to name a few things).

Camp is just a week away now, and I am ready as ever. I have been studying my playbook to get used to our changes on offense, and have been working out more than usual to get ready. Many people ask how I?m feeling physically, so I want everyone to know I?m in great shape and my body really feels better than ever. I am currently weighing around 243 lbs, which I feel is the perfect weight for me to report at.

We all know that this camp is going to be a lot different than years past, but I think that we?re ready for the challenge. We?ll go out and give it all we have with the plan of bringing another Super Bowl title back to you the fans.

Well I have to take off now, but I hope that everyone is well and please come see us at training camp in Latrobe......and p.s., I will do all I can at camp to sign a bunch of autographs, but please understand that if I can?t get to you that I didn?t avoid you on purpose. I?m on a tight schedule in Latrobe, but I appreciate the support of the fans.

Take care all...

Ive always believed that Big Ben would bounce back after last season I mean he's too good a QB not to and this just strenthens my fellings.

great post by ben. anybody notice him and amanda beard seemed to be getting a little chummy at the ESPY's after party? i wonder if he got some?

im impressed that while he is talking about himself he is sure to be all inclusive with the team. too me that shows signs of a growing leader who is not all about me, me, i, me.

I guess this blog answers my question about how the young man is doing in his comeback healthwise. I am so glad to hear the young man talking this way, and I just hope that all is well with him healthwise this upcoming season. He, in all reality to all the other league teams has something or alot to prove. He won a Super Bowl 2 years ago, but he played a pretty poor game in my opinion. We won that Super Bowl on 1 big run and 1 big pass or maybe 2, the big hail marry to Hines was huge. I just look forward to seeing this upcoming season more than any in a long time.

Sounds great that he is working out more, learning more and getting ready for this upcoming season to led us yet again. Cannot wait to see how well he bounces back.

He has confidence and that's the most important thing, last year he thought he was ready and he obviously wasn't, this year he does seem ready. Can't wait for training camp, and preseason, and the season to start!!

243 lbs. sounds good! I'm curious to what his playing weight was last year, and how it fluctuated during? Strength was a real issue with BB last year. His bodyweight was at least one gauge for us.

Actually Ben is above his weight when he was drafted at 241 and he is saying now around 243. While last season he dropped down into the 220's do to the crash. So he has got back to his playing weight were he was more comfortable, stronger and faster at now.
