Ok, its been a long day so maybe bear with me on this  one.

I've been watching this play over and over again. and something about just seems, well regular.

Could it be that the Steelers are trying to bait EVERYONE?

Im sorry for all of you who try to protect ben's tough guy image, im sorry but that hit was not hard, funny landing, NOTHING. He got tackled by two people, be it, two very large people, but this is the NFL for cryin' out loud.

All im saying is Ben likes drama, he likes to act. Is maybe Tomlin using it to the Steelers advantage? I mean think about after he got carried off the field on the stretcher, raising his thumb up, like it took everything he had to get it up. It was straight to 7 days of non-stop questions about the QB's health, taking all focus of the rest of the team to fly under the radar, and absolutly DOMINATE the Chargers.

Im Just saying....


ok....

not to discredit ben but I don't think he has or the steelers as an orginization have that kind of attitude to play those kind of head games or propel that kind of drama....ben was really hurt and had to leave.  I think he may have read or heard some shit of Coleman having to start or his arm is better and used it to come back and show us what he's made of....he kicked fucking ass this week like i haven't seen all year and I'm glad he's back.  Steelers aren't playing in a 90210 soap opera

He was diagnosed with a spinal concussion. Pretty serious stuff.

Well, maybe for a professional football player...  The majority of us MGS'ers would have got up, and ran off the field.

Dude 's arms were pinned with no way to protect himself, and hit the back of his head/neck with about 800 pounds of weight behind it (counting his own).  NFL or no, that's gonna leave a mark.

I think if Pittsburgh is going to ah,...script...somethin' like that, I think they do it leading to the Super Bowl, not to a 2nd round, divisional game against the Chargers.  I mean, think about it...all of that work for...the Chargers?

IMO, if they go to those lengths (FTR, I don't think it was an act at all.  Players have concussions and are back playin' with a few weeks.  Maybe it would've been different if he was a LBer or S where he's much more likely to have contact on gameday.  Although...), you can't "use it" to your advantage in the next game because they've all seen that he was sharp.

Honestly, that kinda move comes from the top and Tomlin just doesn't strike me as the kind of guy to do something like that.  Now, if it were Belicheat or one of his disciples...
