Ben Roethlisberger Carted Off Field Today

Ben Roethlisberger was carted off the field in Pittsburgh today during the game with Cleveland. He dropped back to pass, scrambled around a bit and was leveled by two Browns. They sent the cart out, strapped him down and as they wheeled him off the field he did give the thumbs up sign.

Last report I heard is they are calling it a concussion. Why on earth was Tomlin playing him???? He should have played maybe one quarter max and gotten him off the field. We had nothing to play for this week. If we could not beat a team that has not scored an offensive touchdown since Week 11 with Leftwich then we seriously need some help. I hope Ben shakes off all the cobwebs before the playoffs!

With two weeks to rest, he'll be fine. I think Tomlin wanted at least a 2 score lead to feel safe and so he left Ben in. Could have been disastrous. But if you remember, they rested the starters in the final game last year, got beat at Balt. and weren't sharp in a home loss to the Jags in the first round. I can't argue with the decision to play Ben.

The Steelers could have taken a guy or gal out of the stands, and they would have been fine agaist the Browns...Good news for Browns fans like me, the season is over, time to start firing people.
