Help Big Ben Help The Kids...

Well hello friends, how are you? It's been a couple days, huh? You might have noticed the lack of participation on my part over the last few days. This is because unfortunately, as of yet, One For The Other Thumb ain't exactly a paying job. So you know, I have like, a real job...or something. One in which they asked me to attend some really stimulating and excitement driven corporate training. And since they leave me little choice short of allowing them not to sign my pay checks, I gladly obliged. But that's over now...hopefully.

Anyways, there actually was a purpose to this post, besides serving as my own personal therapy session...And that is to implore you all to go and vote for Big Ben Godsend as Fed Ex's Air Player of the Week for Week 9. Last week, if you'll remember, I posted a similar plea regarding Fast William Everrett Parker - Willie ended up winning, and Fed Ex gave the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh a cool $5K. This week, do the right thing again and give the kids the money. Don't let these children grow up to become Ravens fans...

If not for them, do it just so Tony Romo doesn't get it. I hate Tony Romo...

Big Ben for Fed Ex Air Player of Week 9 [VOTE]

Ballhype: hype it up!

I done mah paht, partner....

BTW-

Just read Hines' statement about not wanting Ben to have to make plays out of the pocket on Post-Gazette.com.

In principle i agree with him, but i worry that that might imply that the team could try to turn Ben into that old nightmare player called a "pocket-passer". It has historically never worked out when the Steelers(or any team for that matter) try to change the whole style of play for a QB in order to force-fit him into some pre-ordained role. Just look at Favre, Elway, Montana, Romo, McNabb etc to see that mobility in a QB is a good thing as long as he continues to look downfeild and can make all the throws to get the ball to the WRs.

I do not want another Kordell Stewart Syndrome in Ben, where he's afraid to roll out and tries to force throws from the pocket when he's not comfortable with it. If he is being successful in his style LET HIM PLAzY. Period.

That's my two cents...
