Once Ben gets out of the hospital and starts to recuperate he's probably going to be facing a huge backlash coming from all directions about not wearing the helmet.

Can't see it. He will lose at least 20 pounds over the seven weeks of having his jaw wired shut. His arm strength will go way down. Leg strength. And so on. He will be no where near game quality when the season opens.

Funny how that works in cases like this. You pray and hope that someone is gonna get better. Then when they are OK, you want to smack them around because they freaked you out so much...

I don't mean to be negative, but it seems like it's all just speculation by the Post Gazette. I didn't see any doctors claim when he'll be back, just that he only had facial surgery. These things could take a while to be able to take a hit from say...Julius Peppers, who Ben will meet in the last pre-season game before the real season starts. I wouldn't put too much stock into when the Post Gazette thinks he'll be back.

I do hope they're right and I'm wrong though.

"...the Steelers are confident he should heal and be ready to play in the season opener Sept. 7 against the Miami Dolphins, sources told the Post-Gazette today."

It's the Steelers, not just the PG.
