Might as well let him live and die by his game. Kind of like what Tomlin was talking about on Gruden's bus. "Ben does what Ben does."
Until last night, this is the healthiest Roethlisberger has been this late into the season in 3 or 4 years.
He's not a young man anymore.
Try the best you can to keep him healthy into the playoffs, then let him make his plays.
He can't win you a SB if he isn't healthy enough to be Big Ben when it matters most, as the Donkey playoff game last year illustrated.
