    Ben Roethlisberger had an emergency appendectomy Sunday and will miss Pittsburgh's season opener at home with Miami, the NFL's marquee opening-night game. Coach Bill Cowher said he was not sure how long his quarterback, who became ill before practice, will be out.

    Actually, the laugh is on the Lions. Our 4th last QB will be opening the season for the defending champs under center.

    I think you guy's are giving Charlie Batch too much credit. Those two games he won was on the back of the Steelers defense. He passed for like 90 yards in one game and no more than 120 in the other game. He also had a number of turnovers if I recall correctly. Then again a win is a win even if it is ugly I suppose. :ohwell:
