Default Big Ben's Status

He was down for quite a while. I believe, his 3rd concussion in the last couple of years. The media reports say he should be ok, but what's the inside scoop?

Leftwich seems to play just as well when he gets the chance. Is Ben gonna be at 100% come Sunday?

It was all a ploy.

You know....smoke and mirrors.

I think we will know more about Ben's status later on in the week, AFC. Thus far, the Tomlinator isn't really saying much one way or the other.

If I'm a bettin' person though, I'd say he'll be ready to go and Lefty will get a little more work with the first team offense this week just in case.

No. That injury is reserved for Carson Palmer.

It's like that episode of Coach... the one with the bowl game in Hawaii.

Actually, Cowher kind of reminds me of Craig T. Nelson... How have I never seen this...

And, please... I like Lefty, but comparing him to Roethlisberger... really?

Don't think we will hear much until gametime.. Why give away all of our secrets, and plans? This gives SD a week to have to worry about 2 QB's plays, not just one....
