Glad to see Fox and Clark back.  Thought Ryan has had a great season.  Fox's return will hopefully mean that Harrison will come off of STs.

I think Ben will play.  No way in hell he misses a game vs. the dolts unless he really can't go.

I'm worried that this is the week we really start to miss McFadden.  Having Clark back will be a good thing though.

Heard an interesting tidbit on local sports talk:  supposedly Ben spoke with Emmitt Smith at the game and said he had called his own plays in 3 of the last 4 games.

Why 3 of the last 4?  How does that story break in DC and not the 'Burgh?

Did Ben Fire Bruce Arians!?

HEY BEN, RUN THE BALL MORE.

One out of four ain't bad.  Wait.  That actually sucks.

I'm not taking it seriously but it's fun to toss out there.  Besides, you can still see Arians on the sidelines with his play sheet and headset.

Well, if Ben is calling his own plays, then we need to fire HIM as OC, too!!!

Honestly, I kind of hope we sit Ben this week.  I believe that we can beat the Colts without him (never thought I'd say that) and he needs the rest.  We've got the Ravens and Titans back to back coming up, plus the Chargers, Pastries, etc.  Rest him now and hope that he can come back strong.

On the other hand, if a week of rest isn't going to help anyway, I guess you just play it out.
