Everyone remember a few weeks back when Ben wanted Cower to throw the red flag. Cower didn't want to but did, cause Ben told him to. It turned out, ben never even saw the play in question and it cost the Steelers a TO. Bottom line is, as long as he gets Medical clearance, Ben will play. He is too much of an egotistical idiot, to put his team first and take the bench. And Cower is too much of a Pu#$y to say no.
Can't blame Cowher all that much though. If Ben says he's OK and none of the doctors on the Steeler's staff say otherwise, it's tough to bench your QB who's had so much success the past two years.
Ben has had as much bad luck himself as anyone in the NFL has ever had. Kinda feel sorry for him, but he should have sat his butt down after his concussion.
