Nice write up on what Ben has been doing during the 4 weeks. Don't forget to scroll down and read the email from the whiny Bucs fan. It's quite amusing.

Good, Im glad hes working on his mechanics, Ben is a very good qb. Maybe he will come back and look like manning and brady in the pocket lol. Well atleast he will be fresh and ready to go after he gets a full week of practice in when he returns. I just wish Ben would run more for first down like he did when he started out his career. Keeping the defense off balance with a qb spy.

That bucs fan is retarded. "take away 3 plays for 21 Pts and it's a different ball game." Is he ****ing serious? If the other team didn't score touchdowns and we did, it would've been a different ballgame. Wow. That was literally one of the dumbest things I've ever read. How bout this. "take away LaGerrette Blount's TD in junk time and it wouldve been a bigger blowout" lol

:plus1: what do you expect? the vast majority of steeler haters are complete morons that are blinded by their hatred of our great franchise. they always come up with lame excuses to feel better about the fact they cheer for an inferior franchise. always some lame excuse, refs, luck, their team gave us the win, we cheated, the game was fixed, locusts, bubonic plague, escaped zoo animals running across the field, aliens abducting their players and replacing them with clones that suck, HAARP, chemtrails, the illumnati, etc. it's pathetic....

I expect nothing less from Ben than to stay busy working on his skills and staying in football shape as much as possible. When he comes back he'll have 2 weeks to practice with the team and I expect him to come out like gangbusters and play well against Cleveland.

You have admire his attitude through all of this; he's taking the punishment like a man and not causing trouble. His team will be more than happy to have him back and I'm sure they all look forward to playing with him again. They have done well so far, keeping the mindset that they dont have Ben and they need to stay in the hunt, and everyone is contributing in a big way to keep things rolling.

If you think about this from the perspective of Ben's health we may end up better off by having him out the first 4 games. He will have missed 1/4th of the regular season and a few sacks which could have made him sore or even worse. Now we get a fresh seasoned QB 1/4 of the way into the season and we are sitting nicely at 3-1 or 4-0 depending on Sunday against the Ratbirds. I'm thinking that we will be 4-0 going into the bye week and then we bring Ben back to play Cleveland which should leave us 5-0 going on the road against Miami, the Saints, and the Bungals. All three of those could be tough opponents. I think we will be heavy playoff contenders towards the end of this regular season with Ben in great form.

:plus1: If there's any positive about the suspension, Ben's going to be a lot fresher. He's missed 4 games - 4 games he hasn't been sacked, tackled, knocked down; he'll be walking into game 5 of the season without any bumps or bruises - what other starter in the NFL can say that at that point? By Playoff time, he'll be right in the middle of his stride, while everyone else will be tired and worn out.

"After one practice, Whitfield said Roethlisberger took his cleats off and put on some work boots. Roethlisberger said he was going to chop wood at his father's ranch nearby."



Real interesting to hear hes doing things with his family. Now he could have done this before and it was never reported but its painting Ben in a new light.

Good read..

Trust me they don't think they played bad at all...I mean they keep saying if this would have happend or that it would have been a different ball game...Freeman doesn't believe they got dominated????? They didn't make the plays to win...period! Problem is they were 2-0 against 2 horrible teams and their heads were do inflated thinking they could dominate a REAL NFL team..they got a biatch slap of reality. They are not in the same league as the Steelers.....:nahnah:

Oh and we owned them in their own stadium filled with Steelers fans in the blazing hot Florida sun..heat index was 100 that day!!! Peace!

So nice to read an article that is positive and not negative about Ben. Seemed like every other article I ever read was bashing and negative.

Bawahahahaha @ the Bucs fans whining! :lol:
