Default Big Ben - Injury

Please, please be okay. This doesn't look good at all. Let's hope he hasn't just been Carson Palmered

Amen. I hope Batch can do the best he can and just get us through this game with a win, no matter how lousy.

Palmer was knee, this was clearly ankle.

I just hope it's not season ending....

It's a break. Regular season done for Ben. If we can limp to the playoffs, he could be back for us. Come on Charlie.

Here's my worry - if Leftwich is out, and Dixon is inactive this week. Who steps in if Charlie get injured (god forbid)?

I don't want to sound like a Ben fanboy, but I don't care. If we don't have Ben, our chances of winning any given game diminish precipitously . He is a big part of why we win. If he doesn't get back in by the playoffs, what started out looking like a momentum heading into these last few games is now looking like an unlikely and cumbersome uphill battle.

I know it's all part of Ben's style of play - and I knew that he would live or die by the sword - but that's exactly what's worried me for the last two years now. How many more beatings can ben take? At this rate, he's going to be the first NFL player to die on the field...

If Ben is out long term, I say we sign McNabb
