[QUOTE=83-Steelers-43]Breaking News: Pittsburgh AP - It's official, Ben Roethlisberger had surgery today and came out of the emergency room with a completely new throwing hand (pictured below). It consists of a radar and honing device which focuses on the complete WR and HB core of the Pittsburgh Steelers. [quote]


Did he get the extended warranty on the thumb??

His thumb was/still is sore, he sat out for one day of practice and that was the day the world ended.

I wasn't that far off on that prediction.

Please do. And no BNG203, aliens did not inject a bacterial substance inside Ben's thumb in order to have him stop signing autographs.

I heard it was their index finger - LOL! From my experiences years ago in nursing, I can tell you that's a fable. The old saying ...not the size of the ship....still stands.

You are absolutely correct, 83 - the media and some of the fans blow everything out of proportion. The rumor gets started by an overzealous reporter anxious to be the first to report "the story' and it spirals out of control and into an overexaggeration. I've learned over the years not to take anything at face value unless I hear it directly from the player's or coach's oral cavities.

Hmmmm, well to put a little credence in NICK66's seemingly unlikely scenario - but Ben has flat out lied about his injury status in the past - only to be called out by his own coach.

Quote:
Rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was exaggerating when he said he broke two toes on his right foot during the AFC championship game, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher said.

Roethlisberger told reporters Jan. 25 he wore down physically during the lengthy NFL season and broke two toes while scrambling late in the first half of the 41-27 loss to the New England Patriots.

Cowher seemed irritated Roethlisberger would go public with such a claim, that, in effect, suggested the Steelers gambled with the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year's health by playing him when he was hurt.

"We are unaware of any problems with his toes, OK?" Cowher said.

Roethlisberger didn't specify which toes were broken and wasn't walking with an apparent limp Jan. 24 or Jan. 25.

"Ben does not have broken toes," Cowher said, talking publicly for the first time since the postgame press conference following the Steelers' fourth loss in an AFC title game in 11 seasons. "At the end of the first half, while scrambling, he aggravated some toes he has broken in the past, in high school and college. He mentioned something to Ryan Grove, our assistant trainer, and said he may have broke his toe. When he came off, he said he was fine, and he went back out in the second half and didn't say anything to anybody else for the rest of the game."

Very good point. I've already stated that I feel Ben craves more attention than any other player on this roster (wether when dealing with injuries or to simply get his mug on TV). In my opinion, homerism aside, he made a complete ass out of himself with the whole "toe injury situation". Not the most popular opinion among fellow Steeler fans, but oh well.

But in this case Cowher never denied Ben's injured/sore thumb. Apples and oranges if you ask me.
