Yeah, rub some dirt on the 3rd ventricle of your brain to relieve some pressure and swelling. Great way to treat the $100 million man.

Ben's brain was good enough to SWEEP the AFC North this year.

That's good enough for me.

Yeah, but that was before he got his eggs scrambled in week 17.

I've had 3 minor concussions and only 1 where I couldn't remember what happened in the game I just played. Trust me, for a slobbering D-lineman like me that is OK, but not something you want hampering your QB's decision making.

I think Ben getting his bell rung might actually clear out some cobwebs and stop him from thinking too much.

5 wide!!! Ben, 5 Wide!!!

to be honest, 4 of those game were gimmes. The 2 Ravens' games were the only ones that they actually had to participate in..

Its why I hope the kid learns that its OK to throw the ball away at times to avoid the hit. Just like RB's run out of bounds to extend their career. I'd rather have Ben play in Pittsburgh for 10 more seasons with a few more incompletions a game than have him leave in 5 years with more concussions.
A concussion is more than a "bump on the head" as well. Anyone who thinks that is very misinformed.

This is logical. Concussions are nothing to screw around with. You put a guy out there to early, and you can turn him into a vegetable faster than you can say supercalifragilisticexbealidochus.
