Ben Will Be Back After Four Games

Just hanging out on a Friday, waiting out the storm that isn't going to have a huge impact on the east coast after all.


Oh well, little or no Jim Cantore foolishness. Too bad. It's almost comical beyond belief.

Speaking of comical, Ben Roethlisberger had his suspension reduced from six to four games by Emperor Goodell. Now the Steelers just have to survive those four games. The season opens in Pittsburgh against the Falcons (not a gimme; some think the Falcons are for real...playing at Heinz Field will help the Stillers though). In Week 2, the 'Burghers head to Tennessee (a revitalized Titans team? Tough...very tough). Week 3 takes the Benless Black and Gold to Tampa to play the Bucs (they HAVE to win this one). Lastly, the Steelers are home for the top-notch, Super Bowl contending Ravens (ugh).

At best, I see 2-2. At best.

To me, in the AFC North, that won't be good enough.

I still can't believe Peter King has the Steelers winning the Super Bowl. The mere thought of doing so, in Cowboys Stadium makes me seriously delirious, especially if it comes at the hands of the Romo boys. Watching Cowboys fans cry...over losing the Super their OWN the STEELERS? Short of the Yankees beating the Mets in 2000, could there possibly be anything better?

Too bad it's not going to happen. I can't see where this team is much better than 8-8 or 9-7.

But hope springs eternal in the football fans' soul.

Come back soon, Ben. Keep doing what you've been doing in this preseason.
