    WOW. I know he will be o.k, but I am tired of hearing about all the injuries this kids ends up with. 6’5, 245LBS and he seems to just always be banged up. I am a huge Big Ben fan and I know he isnt faking, but how does he always seem to be hurt after a game? Yes, its a tough sport but it just seems like he is always dinged up. Maybe I am overreacting but just once I want Ben to come out of a game ready to practice for the next one.

    I agree, Ben should be fine, but this is the NFL. Everyones gonna be a little banged up after week one, but I’m tired of hearing about every little nick and bruise! Again, this is the NFL! You get paid MILLIONS of dollars! Play through it big boy!
