I can't believe that no one has made this connection yet! We had another QB who was missing a couple teeth...he just happened to take us to 4 Super Bowl victories.

Default Re: Ben Speaks

the good thing is ben is speaking (damn leigh steinbergh prepares a good statement). the bad thing is ben has a "get back on the horse when you get bucked off" personality.

the steelers wont go after bens bonus and steinbergh has a little less leverage when it comes to holding the steelers hostage with re-negotiations after next season or the one after. bens motorcycle riding has cost him 2 mil from campbells and several more from the steelers. as loud as a chopper or rice burner is....cash always speaks louder.

the statement has all the right elements. he owes it to God, his family, his team, and his fans to treat life and his career as something not worth wasting on an afternoon joyride.

Way to go Ben. I am glad to see he is immediately admitting the mistake and promoting helmet use. I bet there are a few people out there who are deciding to wear a lid (or they are being brow beaten into it) because of what happened to Ben. If he does recover as well as the doctors are predicting, maybe the net result of what first appeared to be a tragedy will be some lives saved.

It may have been taken care of as a portion of his nearly 7 hour surgery. More than likely implants were put in.

I hope so, too, but I know that isn't so for all motorcyclists. While driving home from work on the afternoon of Ben's accident, I passed at least three motorcyclists who were riding w/o a helmet. I don't know if those three motorcyclists live in caves and didn't hear of Ben's accident or what the story is, but there will always be those who choose to not use good common sense.

And one out of those three will probably end up with their brains splattered all over some roads' concrete. Sad

I've seen some motorcyclists w/o helments but I know the majority of them that I've seen were wearing helments.....so I've seen a combo of both, either wearing one or not wearing one
