Exactly!

I wonder how much the bounty will be if he were to play.

I mentioned something along this line of thinking (in one of the other "BB to play" threads).

The Ravens would send some scrub after BB. The scrub aims for BB's ribs (maybe even after the play is over); the scrub gets suspended (even kicked out of the league); and, the Steelers have no BB.

The Ravens lose a scrub; the Steelers lose their franchise player.

"Re-injure"? I think that's a very hard call for any doctor to make when the nature of the sport is for people of size and speed to hit you as hard as possible.

One thing I know is that the more time you have to heal the less likely to "re-injure."

Sit him this week. He will probably not be 100% even the following week but that is a must win and this week isn't.

You've got a good point. As far as the Ravens are concern, knocking out Ben for the rest of the season means that they won't have to face getting eliminated by the Steelers in the playoffs. I may be wrong but the Ravens are 0-4 against the Steelers in the playoffs.

As far as the Ravens are concerned, injuring Ben is more important to their Super Bowl hopes than winning this game.

harbaugh has also vowed to sniff flaccos dirty game jock one more time than usual, infront of the team, if the ravens can have a steeler qb die on their field like a clubber in the streets after a SB party

As much as I want to say "no, keep him off the field", I can't.

I just can't deal with another Baltimore loss. 2 straight years of getting sweeped. We will never hear the end of it.

Play the man. Because without him, Steelers struggle to win any games. Let alone get any offense going.
Time to part ways with both Lefty & Batch...
