    I love Ben and realize he's the best QB we've had in decades. I understand we are watching a legendary player, but geez Ben quit crying about stuff all the time. He comes off like Hines a lot. For each time he takes the blame for someone else's mistake he follows up with crybaby crap. You're a $100 mill QB. Suck it up. I understand change is frustrating but don't play it up with the media, they hate you already based on your success and all you're doing is feeding them ammo.
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    We know every detail about every hang nail and paper cut Ben's ever had.

    Some players never mention an injury. Ben mentions them all so we're even more impressed by his success.

    He's a drama queen off the field and in the media. He's probably the toughest SOB to ever play the game on the field.

    Ben is a perfect human being. He has never made a mistake and he never will. Everyone here needs to jump aboard for the perfect ride. Ahhhh...Can you feel that perfect wind in your hair?

    I think he's honest. Honest to a fault. If he didn't give the media anything they'd rip him for that too.

    Listen to the interview, don't READ IT.

    Much to do about nothing, minus Starkey's attempts to stir the pot.

    Honest to a fault? More like dramatic to a fault. Dude is tough as nails but most guys like that aren't quick to give up info on injuries.

    When he's wearing a Frankenstein boot on his foot it's kind of hard to hide injuries, no?

    Cowher denied that he had broken toes, and then said "it's nothing that rest can't fix".

    Well if he's not hurt, what does it matter how much rest he gets?

    Everyone saw the spear he took in the AFC title game with the Ravens, and the fact he went down to the tunnel, it was Florio who reported that he had X-rays prior to the Super Bowl.

    I've been critical of Ben at times, but I have to agree with Crash about this one...listen to the interview. Ben was answering the questions honestly, but to me, he didn't sound like he was complaining. I agree, much ado about nothing.

    It's the end of May...not much real news. Guess these writers have to try to sell newspapers...

    By the way, in three Super Bowls with 2 different OCs in the Ben Era? The Steelers have run nine first down plays in the red zone:

    7 runs 2 passes.

    1 TD in 7 tries running.

    1 TD in 2 tries passing.

    By all means, let's keep running it.
