I thought he had a gnarly charlie horse when I saw he helmet his his thigh. I guarantee that part of his thigh is black and blue tomorrow.

That sure was a scary moment. My dad and I noticed Ben on the ground after celebrating the huge moose catch. Less than a second after the first replay of the knee hit, my dad says 'Well, that's the season". I just sat there biting my nails. Thank the lord he's fine, that was a huge hit. If Brady would've taken that hit the defender would've had to serve a life sentence!

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette a few minutes ago:

"Ben Roethlisberger's right knee is "fine" after it looked bad initially when he was hit low and late by defensive end Raheem Brock. I saw Ryan Tollner, BR's agent, right after the game and he had a look of relief. He said it looked as though the QB turned his knee just before the moment of impact or it could have been a season-ender."
Ben had a guardian angel looking out for him today!

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

i do think ben being light on his feet and having lightning quick reflexes, saved his season.

after further review it appears he slightly shifts his weight at the moment of impack to absorb the blos, and then he immediately falls to ensure his cleats arent planted.

i cant be certain, but it also looked like he mightve been wearing some sort of brace or added protection on the knee.

i have noticed that, at first glance, he seems a bit slow and old on his scrambles for the past 2 years, but in reality he has been battling injuries, and just looks like a big ass qb who is running with a coat of armor on.

That hit he took later to the knees really p****ed me off. You cannot be lying on the ground and lunge at the QB below the waste. But they got away with it a couple of times. Thank God Ben is all right. And for those of you calling him a drama queen, I want you to get out there and take the punishment he does and see how you handle it. Of course you would probably be crippled for life on one hit but go ahead and keep calling him a drama queen. He is one of the toughest SOBs out there. And please tell me what he did exactly on that play to be considered a drama queen? Enlighten me.

I thought the same thing, "damn, there goes the season". I thought he should have set out the rest of the half, which was about 2 minutes, and should have been pulled out in the 4th quarter.

faking? i didn't say he was faking pain. i was implying he is a drama queen so i didn't automatically think it was serious. also because he didn't grab at his knee.

It looked exactly like Carsons career-ender to me.

I couldn't believe he came back in.

It's true, he does have a history. That said, this one looked pretty bad.
