Not sure if you saw, and I will update as I get reports, but Ben Roethlisberger has been in a motorcycle accident from reports i'm getting.

Here are some news story links:

Early indications are not life threatening:

That's good news. Being an Eagle fan, and on the other side of Pennsylvania, I feel for my AFC brothers and sisters today. I wouldn't want to see McNabb hurt this way either. I hope he is back on his feet soon so we can kick his ass in a Superbowl.

On a side note, good news for Eagle fans: Shawn Andrews has been signed through 2015:

Edited to add:
Roethlisberger was in serious but stable condition in an operating room, the Associated Press reported, citing Dr. Larry Jones, chief of trauma at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh. The crash happened in downtown Pittsburgh, on Second Avenue near the 10th Street Bridge.

I'm just wondering. If you are the guy who crashed into Ben's motorcycle would you just keep driving to Ohio right about now? I wouldn't want to be known as the guy (or girl) who just destoyed a franchise.

Just wondering #2: I know if this happened to McNabb i'd have every Philly-hater come dancing to me down the hallways at work with the "bad news". I'd be getting emails and text messages: "Tra-la-la Bad News, Furey! McNabb is now McSquished! Better luck next year, Pal!"

For sure there would be a flood of emails if this happened to McNabb

I think this is very sad, he was to cocky to wear his helmet. Looks like he will recover, unlike a cousin of mine that didn't wear his helmet. He was 19 at the time of his accident and now is like a 3 year old child, it is such a shame.

I hope Ben gets better soon and I look forward to watching him play in the fall.
