Gee, I don't know, both Ben and Tomlin said the injury had ZERO effect on his play. Were they lying to us then or lying to us now? Had to be lying at some point - both can't be true.

I find it unrealistic and probably impossible for a shoulder injury (such as the one that Ben had) to the throwing arm of an NFL quarterback to completely heal in the 3 or 4 weeks Ben was out.
I think it was pretty obvious that it was still bothering him as he bounced passes to receivers and grimaced with pain after being hit....
I think that when Ben and Tomlin said the injury had ZERO effect on his play, it was because they did not want to use the injury as an excuse for their performance....Nor open up an questions as to why Batch did not play....
So I guess they were lying to us during the season....I am still not sure where the drama comes in.
I don't know how you can assume what Ben is doing, or why he is doing it. Are you in his head? Let it go allready.
It's getting so bad with the Pro Bowl, I wouldn't be surprised to hear the starting QB's are Sanchez and Kolb...

Ben always comes up with injury scenarios all the time, while others do not. And you do not realize what that is? How about his mysterious broken toe the one year, when Cowher said he never ever heard of it? Ben always has an injury excuses waiting in the wings, whether during the season or after. He will boldly claim "The injury is not excuse" while at the same time knowing he has created a trap door if he doesn't come through. Is it the end of the world? No. Does it matter that much? Not really. But I still like keeping it real regardless and calling a spade a spade. Keeping it wheel.

Good question. If Ben wasn't/isn't injured why would he say he isn't healthy enough to play in the PB? If the CLE game was meaningless, and he was hurt, then why did he play in it?
