Exclamation Ben is bringing back the gloves

Steelers Notebook: Roethlisberger putting gloves on
Friday, December 02, 2005

By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ben Roethlisberger will bring back the gloves for Sunday's home game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but it is what's under the gloves that will be a bigger issue.

Roethlisberger said he will wear some kind of "contraption" under his glove to protect his right thumb, which was injured in Monday night's 23-7 loss in Indianapolis.

"It's all right ... a little sore," Roethlisberger said. "I'll try to see what we can do to get by with it."

Then he added, "It is pretty painful. It's not something that's fun to have."

Roethlisberger, who is listed as probable on the team's injury report, has practiced each of the past two days wearing gloves on both hands -- the same gloves that caused such a big debate last season when he did not play well wearing them in a playoff game against the New York Jets.

A week later, Roethlisberger discarded the gloves against New England because snow was forecast for the AFC championship game and he said the gloves get slippery when wet.

Yesterday, Roethlisberger said he will wear them against the Bengals because they allow him to grip the ball better in cold weather.

"Everything is fine," coach Bill Cowher said. "He's ready to go ... ready to play Sunday."

Roethlisberger would not specify how he was injured against the Colts.

But he did not use it as an excuse for his performance. He completed 17 of 26 passes for 133 yards and threw two interceptions.

It was Roethlisberger's first game back after missing three starts because of knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

"You want to come back and bounce back as fast as you can, get back out there and get back to that [comfort] level that you had before the injury," Roethlisberger said. "But it took a little time. It probably wasn't as fast as I wanted it to come back. And, obviously, it's tough going against that good of a defense."

I know Ben's wearing the glove to help protect his thumb but I sure hope he has a respectable game so we don't have to relive the Glovegate all over again.

I'm starting to wonder if there's some shennanigans going on. Lots of talk about an injury that's "a little sore" and "everything is fine".

If everything is fine, why are there news reports about it?

Either Ben's thumb is really hurt (if it is a repeat of the alleged thumb problem last year in the playoffs we can add to our worries whether it is something chronic) or the Steelers have learned from Belichek to publicize every injury and play mind games with the opponent as to who is ready to go.

Watched a short clip last nite on espn from Ben. First its "very painful" and "not fun to play with" then its "alittle sore" .

This definately hasnt been Ben's year for health and well being..all we can do is hope he heals up and we can continue to patch him together for as long as the season goes.

My question is...whatever happened to the big and tough Big Ben? Seems like every game he plays he is in some way hurt and it's really getting annoying. If he plays like he did against the Jets last year, we're in trouble.
