He's a warrior all right!

I hope it's not something that will nag him the duration of the season. Get it worked out and solid. Play Lefty if we have to for a game.

Don't see why it would be - Belicheat has been lying about injuries with impunity for years.

I don't think he wants the opposition to know how bad his shoulder really is

Not really.

I'm not entirely sure why he REFUSED to answer the question, but I think the first two times were just him wanting to focus on hat really mattered, which was how the guys played. The third was just him being playful, I'm sure.

After all, the Patriots have made a living on ridiculous secrecy.

It worries me because he was favoring it at times. This could really be an issue and there really isn't a time where he can sit a game out or take it easy with this schedule.

It would only be a violation if they fudge the official injury report, which isn't due until Wednesday (I believe).

His shoulder certainly didn't seem to bother him tonight.

With how tough our schedule gets...

I prefer to see Ben sit a few weeks and let it heal NOW.

They better evaluate him really good. Let's make sure he is healthy this season.

Some of the throws he made tonight, it can't be bothering him all that much. He threw some laserbeams, especially the one to Heath that pretty much sealed the game. There are very few quarterbacks in the league with the arm strength to make that throw. But I don't think he's going to sit unless it really affects his ability to throw. One thing's for sure, he's one of the toughest guys in the league.

His shoulder doesn't seem to be bugging him.

He's made some great throws in crappy weather and led the Steelers to what appeared to be the winning score.
