Thanks for the link

Ben does intend to play in the Pro Bowl as a "consolation prize" for not playing in the Super Bowl and to not "let down" everyone he is taking to Hawaii with him

That is f***ing selfish - rehab the damn ankle rather than play another game on it until next summer - you made $10 million this year - do you really need a free flight to Hawaii in order to reward your teammates and coaches with a trip on your nickel - how does playing in Hawaii advance your alleged goal of winning championships?

Glad to post it.

In Ben's defense, there's no QB pressure in the Pro-Bowl

It takes 4-6 weeks for a high ankle sprain to heal, and before the Denver game he claimed to be at about 50%, and he was feeling fine after. He's been resting for a couple weeks now, and he'll rest for at least another couple weeks.

Playing this one isn't going to hurt him, and he's taking three lineman, Arians and his Wife. So i'm not at all upset with this decision to play, if he's there, he's earned it.

Edit: If it is indeed a high-ankle sprain, it should be fully healed, but sore, by the time the Pro-Bowl gets here.

i don't have a problem with his agent's comments. He's going to enjoy the trip, as he should, and take it easy. Hell, you could make a case for everyone going. It's not a demanding game.
He also sounds very thankful for support from the fans and peers.

No problem here whatsoever. Hope he enjoys his trip.

He'll be accompanied by none other than Troy, Antonio, Mike W and more, so it'll be an interesting game to watch

Which is why so many players annually beg out of it due to "injuries"?

There is no way that ankle is healed - as for taking it easy, a Georgia running back was taking it easy when he ended his career at a Pro Bowl flag football game

ROBERT EDWARDS couldn't immediately perceive what had happened to him as he lay on Waikiki Beach days before the Pro Bowl after the 1998 season. Seconds earlier he had been living his dream. The New England Patriots had drafted him 18th overall out of Georgia that year, and he'd rushed for 1,115 yards. That earned him an invitation to Hawaii to play in a beach four-on-four flag football game with other top rookies, including Peyton Manning. But as he leaped to defend a pass, Edwards landed awkwardly. He felt no pain at first as he lay crumpled on the white sand. All he knew was that something was very wrong with his left leg. It was the sensation of his dream dying.

The pain began in the ambulance on his way to Honolulu's Straub Clinic & Hospital—excruciating pain, "like dislocating your finger, times 50," Edwards would later say—but even that did not compare to the agony that overwhelmed him when he awoke from surgery that night. That's when he learned that he'd suffered what Georgia's Director of Sports Medicine, Ron Courson, who treated Edwards during his rehab, calls "the worst knee injury I've ever seen."

I just fail to see why you set your rehab back by playing in a joke game like the Pro Bowl

He'll play one drive, at most. There will not be any rushing the quarterback. He has more of a chance of hurting himself when sneezing then he does playing in this game. No, really, people have broken ribs when sneezing.

It's different when your a runningback. Your running towards defenders.

He'll be fine.

By the way, I agree, the Pro-Bowl IS a joke. Regular season games gather better ratings.

By way of instructive comparison, Troy is not playing in Hawaii

Troy's nursing his left Achilles, and he's a strong safety. He runs from one side of the field to another several times a game. It's a much different scenario...
