    I still think he's not playing.. In fact, he's telling reports today that he still has significant pain and not much arm strength.

    I just can't help but think back to the SF game last year.

    My gut tells me he won't, my head tells me will....

    Of course he's telling them that!! It wouldn't be his typical "look at me fighting through the pain to play" if he told the truth about it. You do know he milks the media so it makes him look more heroic don't ya?

    Case in point:

    One report he says this:
    Per Roethlisberger, the decision will be based on his arm strength and only his arm strength because he isn’t currently having any other problems that will keep him from playing.



    Then, in this one:
    Roethlisberger said "there's always a chance" he could play against the Ravens but isn't sure his injured arm will cooperate. When asked if the issue is pain or arm strength, Roethlisberger said "both."


    How can it be "both" in one article and "only" in another? If it's "ONLY" down to arm strength, then pain isn't a factor.

    Totally different scenario. This injury is all about throwing motion AND arm strength. The SF game was all about how mobile he would be in the pocket. He has always been able to beat teams with his arm alone. When it works, that is.

    I gotta agree with nick on this one.

    Yeah, even hurt, he gives them their best chance of winning.

    If anything that makes this game even gloomier. His numbers that day:

    56.8% Comp. 3 INT 1 FUM 0 TD.

    If that was with a broken foot imagine what it would be like if he can't throw.

    I have believed after seeing the debacle the last two weeks, if he can manage the offense, he will come in to hand off and get the ball out extremely quick...which is what their offense was changed into in the first place. HE was hurt while trying to extend a play.
    If he can lead them to two scoring drives, with one of them a TD, then he might come out and hope the defense can hold them off.
    Against the Giants it took one crossing route, very short pass over the middle to Wallace, who did the rest.
    Any offense in Pitt two weeks ago might have led to a Steeler win.
    A win this Sunday gets them back into the thick of things.

    This game needs to be a 2012 defining moment for the Ravens.

    HE can throw. I am not buying his BS. I read earlier that he just had to "tear the scar tissue" and basically after that his arm would be normal.

    Arm strength will not be an issue, it's not like he's been out for months, it's just a few weeks.

    HE IS NOT PLAYING. I would bet money on it if there were online currency... but there isn't so I won't.

    Had Batch been even remotely competent v. Cleveland, they might have at least started Choo-Choo Charlie and then inserted Ben when the sh** starts hitting the fan. After all, that would maximize the drama (and drama is Ben's homebrewed pain killer).
    They'll go w/ Ben as long as he can take a snap.

    I'd bet a $25 Christmas gift to a Baltimore kids charity with 1 person that Ben does not play. Anyone?
