yeah, i agree too, ambridge. or brett farve. remember farve playing through his jacked up thumb a few years back? cant remember exactly how he did but i pretty much know it was about as well as he always does and he led his team into the playoffs. ben just needs to make it to the sb first before he carries on this tough guy image. mcnabb and culpepper too. these guys might bee too big and strong for their own good. ben has stood in against 340 lb linemen and speeding lb's like he's 400 lbs. its probably a good thing hartings inadvertantly tripped polluck last week on that "cheap shot" or ben might have been killed. these rookie lb's sure like hitting him in the knee though. coincidence????

hmmmmmm

I can't believe Ben is still playing with that thumb. Mainly after he said it hurts so much he throws more with his wrist than his hand, and still threw better than most QB's. I respect Ben A LOT more now.

thats cool of you to say boltfan. tomlinson is probably my favorite player not a steeler especially now that m. faulk is nearing the end, and b. sanders is already in the h.o.f.

ben said his longest pass last weekend (40 yds) was thrown at full strength, and that was as far as he could get it.

you look at warner and his thumb injury and how it possibly could have been responsible in his demise,

end of the day lets pray the surgery goes well for ben
