keeping my fingers crossed...right now with his status unknown...it is kindof a bittersweet victory. I know we have a team that can pull through this though...and we will regardless, but I hope Ben is of!

What are you smoking? That wasn't a dirty hit. The D-lineman fell and Ben stepped into his throw is all that happened. It was far from dirty.

Figg I won't go as far to say the hit was dirty, but it definately should have been a penelty. You can not hit a qb below the knees like that. Right now though, it makes no diference, we got past this game and we have to move on and pray that it is nothing serious. We are a team that can fight injury and we should be fine!!! Like everyone that doubts ben has said...."ANYONE THAT WERE TO PLAY QB ON THE STEELERS WOULD HAVE SUCEEDED WITH THAT TYPE OF TEAM....well folks....nothing has changed (that is except for the emergence of one more threat...FAST WILLIE!!!!

He fell and then lunged helmet 1st into Bens knee thats what im smoking. He could have used his arm or forearm to hit him. Also by rule you cant hit a QB below the knees.

You could take it as possibly a dirty shot, seeing him lunge forward..but u can also say he was just trying to make a play and it ended up in a bad way.

Don't think it was intentional, but if they would have called a penalty I wouldnt have been against it.. I mean hell they called Penalties on everything else.

I will agree that it should have been a penalty, but it wasn't a cheap shot. The guy was falling and about snapped his neck hitting Ben's knee. It wasn't like he was speared.

Well it didnt look like it felt too good. Let's just hope all is well and he will be back soon. I agree I think we can continue to win without it but it sure would be nice to have him in there. :sign08:

All I know is I am tired today...But it was worth it.
