So, [b]YES [/b]or [b]NO[/b]: Does either Ben Roethlisberger or Troy Polamalu play this week?

I wonder how effective Polamalu could even be after staying out so long. I have to assume Ben can't play, but now that the doctors say he can take a hit it's tough to imagine him sitting out. Ben at fifty percent is better than Ben at 100% sometimes. Coming off a long overtime and a hard win, could be close.

Can't say I bet against us at the Bank, though.

If they had a chance to take the division, I'd say "yes". Since they don't, it would be really stupid for them to put Ben in this game.

We need to capitalize on their injuries and not only win convincingly, but break them down and make them quit on each other.

I think Ben, Polamalu, & Brown play. They don't have much choice. This is a big game and I see them bringing out all the stops.

Even if Ben plays the Stillers will lose. If Troy and Ben play they will lose.

Flacco and the offense will explode at home. 3 of our last five games are at home.

At worst we finish 13-3.

At this point I vote we send the Pitt Panthers....try to get everyone healthy and make a 4-0 run down the stretch to sneak into the wild card. That being said, that was one heck of a gutsy road win today. The Chargers did contribute with pathetic D on the 4th and long but there were a lot of other plays that had to be made.

The last time the steelers played in Baltimore. They were relatively healthy then, too.

If there's still the potential of serious injury to Ben, I do not want him to play. Can you imagine the trauma to which ever of our players lays the hit on him that kills him? I don't want to see that on my field, either.

seriously though, I hate the Steelers as a fan but I don't want to see that happening on both side, especially to the one causing it...

Their doctors should know better....

I say this with no hint of facetiousness or snarky gamesmanship: [b]I don't want Ben Roethlisberger to die on the field. I don't want any player to die on the field.[/b]

If there's a good chance that he could die because of his ribs, he shouldn't play. This game isn't worth it. Ravens-Steelers is almost always a close game, regardless of who plays. Football shouldn't even be a factor in his diagnosis.

I don't understand

First I read Big Ben has a serious rib injury that could be fatal.
He shouldn't be let near a field of course, not even training

Then I read he could potentially play

If the Steelers make some stupid risk here with their players they need to be slapped down by the league

Troy P could well have serious issues after he retires the way he is going
[/quote]

kinda silly....they aren't going to endanger the guys life...if he's cleared, he's not in danger, if he isn't cleared, he doesn't play, it's really that simple

Well Ill say this much if Batch does start the Steelers basically have ZERO chance of winning next week in Baltimore. If I am the Steelers I am pretty much conceeding this division and resting Ben for another week and not bringing him back until the Chargers game at Heinz Field in 2 weeks on December 9th. Even if the Steelers lose next week and fall to 6-6 they still have a chance to get one of those two wildcard spots since the Bengals are really the only other team in contention for that 6th spot at 6-5 and the Steelers own the head to head tiebraker over them and still get to the play the Bengals at home where Ben will most likely be back. The other teams after that are Miami at 5-6 who has a tough schedule left and the Titans,Bills,and Chargers who are all 4-7 and most likely will not catch the Steelers.

If I am Tomlin I am not risking bringing Ben back next week in such a physical game if he is not 100 percent ready and risk him missing even more time and not playing again this season. He should be good to go against the Chargers in 2 weeks and that is when I would play him and I think the Steelers can win out their last 4 games with the Chargers,Cowboys,Bengals and Browns and finish 10-6 and get in the playoffs. But Ill say it again if Batch starts next Sunday in Baltimore the Steelers virtually have no chance of winning that game it's as simple as that...

I could care less if Troy plays. I dont see him being the factor he was a few years ago. Either way I am thinking he will be OUT.

If Bens rib injury is legit, then he SHOULD be out. Any thing otherwise is completely insane.
I dont even want to think about him playing.

I dont want to think about our defense playing soft as to not injure him further or worse.
I dont want to think about his wife and new born son being with out a father.
I dont want to think if this is some disgusting ploy.

I have great respect for Ben R, and I do not want him to play if there is a risk of serious injury. The Ravens are on a roll, and will be eager to get win #10 the first Sunday in December. Back to back road wins, and now time to continue the undefeated streak at The Bank. I can't wait until Sunday.

In favor of the steelers?
I have never bet anything or gambled in my life but I would bet any amount of money that we score more than 6 points

We're playing at home baby
