    Shocker: Ben back to drama

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/pos...he-rushed-back

    After both Ben and Tomlin repeatedly saying Ben's injury had no impact on his play, of course, Ben comes out and basically says, in so many words, that he is too injured to play in the Pro Bowl, which is another way of saying, he was actually pretty injured the last games he played.

    Ben is pretty frustrating. On one hand, he really can take a beating and play through some major injuries. On the other, he constantly throws out injuries statuses so he can always use them as a trap door in case he doesn't win. And after saying over and over that no wounds were hurting his play, alas, after the season is over, he races right to alluding that he is still so hurt, that he can't play in the Pro Bowl, AND that his first task at hand is to "get healthy." Many of his stated injuries over the years have been mysterious. Remember when he claimed he had a broken foot or jacked toe, and Cowher said he never even heard such a thing? There have been lots of those.

    Lol...yeah hard to believe Ben wasn't 100 percent weeks after sternoclavicular injury on his throwing side. Must mean he is a drama queen.

    I bet he said ouch when that happened...........what a sissy boy. Yep, foot in a cast, banged up all season, someone breaks his nose, blood everywhere and Ben contnues to play and beat the Ravens. Yeah, he did it all for the drama because you know he's not tough.

    While I totally agree that Ben can be a drama queen, I think playing in the Pro Bowl is just not what it used to be. All kinds of people drop out every year.

    Oh, that wasn't my point at all. I could care less if he wants to play in PB or not. My point was, this is a thinly veiled (if veiled at all) way of saying he was indeed still hurt the last 3 games, hence, it is kind of an excuse for his poor play. You can totally read that message into his comments, even though, both he and Tomlin were adamant that injuries did not influence his play.

    It's getting so bad with the Pro Bowl, I wouldn't be surprised to hear the starting QB's are Sanchez and Kolb...
