    Re: Big Ben



    He'll be out there playing. It's not like anyone from our D is going to get through to touch him and make it worse.

    Not all Steelers fans. The usual mix is more like it. I thought it would be close, but I expected a win. After all, the Chiefs played the Ravens pretty close and that one could have went either way. I would say a bit of luck did come in to play, but after last week, I guess it all evens out in the long run. The injuries suck though. To beat a team like the Ravens with injuries ain't so bad, but to the Chiefs? It looks as if the Steelers playoff run may have come to a screeching halt! Grrrrrr . . . .

It was a shame Cassel decided it was a good time to throw an interception. If not for that, I believe KC would have won. Steelers fans thought they were going to see a blowout and given KC's record, they should have won handily at home but I don't think they're as good as they think they are. Looking forward to our matchup Sunday.

    Yes. It was the right shoulder.

    Bad news if its the right shoulder, but I'm not buying it being as bad as they are making it out to be, we've been down this road with these steelers and ben's "injury" before.

    Already being dubbed an "unusual injury".

    New York,Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012 (AP): NFL ANNOUNCES "ROETHLISBERGER RULE"

    In a not-unanticipated move, NFL Commissioner Roger Greedell announced that due to the injury to his throwing arm, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be allowed to punt the ball downfield in lieu of passing. Referees have been instructed to call Defensive Pass Interference on any opposing player who attempts to catch the ball or prevent the intended receiver from catching it.

    "We considered letting him use a JUGS machine," Greedell said, "but we decided the risk of the poor fragile boy tweaking his tender hamstrings pushing it around the field was just too great."

    the new rule will apply only to games versus AFC North opponents that the Steelers have a significant chance of losing. "Cleveland, meh," Greedell was quoted as saying, "Pittsburgh could put a lamed jackass in as QB & still blow them out." (Steelers backup QB Brian Leftwich was unavailable for comment.)

    Greedell emphasized that as in the infamous Bush v Gore Supreme Court decision of 2000, this should not be construed as setting a precedent. "The sole purpose of this rule is to make sure the much-beloved Pittsburgh team wouldn't be put at a disadvantage versus those dastardly & universally hated black birds from Baltimore."

    Again, this is all Drama. I agree with the notion that he WILL be ready come Sunday night; cmon man, this is SNF and all of the announcers will be talking - the whole world will be watching! He will be there!

    Mark my words if Ben doesn't play Sunday...if they lose, it's because they were having to play us with their 2nd string QB. If they win, they beat us with their 2nd string QB no less. I can hear it now...Steeler fans are so predictable.

    I'm just guessing, but I think he separated his shoulder. He's going to be out awhile. Just a guess, but the way he fell on it is the textbook way to separate a shoulder.

    He'll probably play, but he obviously was hurt bad enough to leave the game and go to the hospital, so how effective he might be would remain to be seen.

    Even if he doesn't play, a win isn't some guarantee. They have played us tough without him, despite us winning those games.

    Re: Big Ben

    I honestly don't understand the narrow minded comments from people that are so sure that he will play. Yes, there is no question that Jen has had a history of bigging up his injuries, and coming back trying to look tough when it really hasn't been all that serious, but there has also been many times when he has legitimately missed games, especially games the week straight after the game, he missed a few games last year because of the ankle sprain, it's not like he played in all of them. I know people want to assume he'll play because it's the Ravens in prime time, but honestly, a sprained shoulder is a sprained shoulder, not even an idiot would play with a sprained shoulder. Ed Dickson sprained his shoulder and missed the full pre season, and that was only said to be minor (grade 1), nobody even knows what the grade is right now.

    There is of course the possibility that it really is't that serious, but by the looks of it, he did fall on his shoulder in an awkward position and it was enough to cause him so sit out for the rest of the game.

    Yeah, we've been made Leftwich's bitch on more than one occasion in his illustrious "Boller Beating" career... They still have speed at WR, and a decent Running game. KC did a good job shutting their WRs down on a slow field. But, if Wallace is running free, it doesn't matter who the QB is.

    So now your saying that the Steelers are going to beat us with Leftwich starting? Are you a redskins fan or something... damn.

    I agree. The game wasn't in hand yet and if it were not a very serious injury he'd still have been out there playing. Obviously he felt that he couldn't throw the ball or had a major lack of mobility in his throwing shoulder.
