Is Ben Roethlisberger on the cover of Madden 07?

What’s next?

Ben Roethlisberger (aka Meathead) went into emergency surgery on Sunday morning to remove his appendix. The appendix had not burst. Roethlisberger has been declared out for the opener against Miami but will probably be out another week or two recovering from surgery. Obviously Ben is a fast healer as evidenced by his speedy recovery from his motorcycle accident but this certainly throws a wrench into Pittsburgh’s title defense.

The defense now rests in the hands of Charlie Batch who did go 2-0 last year when Ben was out with injury. If anything should happen to Batch, the newly signed backup is Brian St. Pierre. Yeah, we don’t know who he is either.

For years now, the loser of the Super Bowl usually suffers from the “Super Bowl hangover”. But as of right now, nothing bad has happened to the Seattle Seahawks while the Steelers have suffered a couple of setbacks already. We have to wonder whether the football gods really intended for Seattle to win the Super Bowl… (Pittsburgh fans say, “get over it already!”)
