I heard about your accident this afternoon. Just wanted to wish you a full and speedy recovery, and to let you know that I'm praying for you constantly!!!!
By the way, PLEASE promise me that once you are fully healed, you will wear a helmet!!!! It's been scary enough this time...and I don't want it to happen again. We all need you and love you too much to ever lose you to a stupid vehicle...though I'm sure I don't have to tell you that.
Get Well Soon!!!!!
Love ya lots, Michelle

Ben, I know may who are praying for you, including myself. Can you not ride that any more? If you must, promise that you'll were a helment. Please? I'm sure its something your use to any way, right? ;) You might not get as lucky next time.
Take care of yourself Ben.

God be with you Ben. I know you can get through this! Your strengh is amazing (as you continued to try to get up after the accident)and if anyone can pull though this, YOU can and you WILL!! As a true Pittsburgh Steeler Fan (as I also live near Pittsburgh)...please take to heart that football is not what is important today/tonight (easy for me to say, huh?? :) )...it's simply you as a person and not a quarterback (although you do one hell of a good job on that!!) And I HAVE to curse our state (Pa) for their choice of making helmets optional?????) I cringe EVERYTIME I see someone on a motorcycle without a helmet (sick of hearing that one yet????)...Anyways....my prayers are so with you and your family. Keep the faith....as I'm sure you are/do. Rather you come back as a quarterback or not....is not what is important right now....God Speed Ben!!


hey Ben I hope you get well soon


I'm pretty upset with you right now, but that has to slide for the time being.

All I'm going to say is that you have to remember that it's not only the automobiles that are recalled by their makers.
You can be as careful as ever, but that doesn't mean that everyone else always is.
Now we've both learned the hard way that we have to choose our battles wisely, head vs. car and/or head vs. pavement is not exactly the fairest of match ups.

Get well soon and pick your battles!


Hi Ben, I just wanted to send you some heart-felt blessings for a quick and almost pain-free recovery! ;)Fellow Redhawks (including myself) thank you for coming to the spring game, but also pray for you at this time of healing and ask that next time you please wear your helmet! :) With Love and God's Blessings, Brandy


Hey Ben,

So sorry to hear about your accident. I'm just glad it wasn't worse than it was. I hope that you get better soon and you'll be in my thoughts and prayers!!

P.S Please wear a helmet next time.. Life is too precious to be taking those kind of risks!!

God bless,


Hey Ben, just wanted to say that I was so sorry to hear about your accident. I prayed throughout the day for you not to have any injuries to your brain, which I heard on the news that you don't (praise God), and for you to make a complete recovery, and I'll continue to do so. It looks like you could have been injured a lot worse than you were from your accident - thank God that you weren't. He really does take great care of you.
I hope that you're able to go out and ride and play ball again soon,
- Jessica


Even this Bear fan has to cross fingers and hope you get well soon so you can kick our asses next season.



Hey Ben - just wanted to let you know how much we're all praying for your safe recovery! I'm a Steelers fan who was born in the Burgh but live in MI...everyone who's a Football fan up here is praying and hoping that you'll be let out with 100% recovery!! God Bless - Becky

Carl Monday

Ben, I really hope you make it through this fine. If you need any help, or someone to talk to on or off the record, give me a call.

Mike Cooper

Get away from me, state helmet laws!

Captain Lance Murdoch

It's always nice to see young people taking an interest in danger. Now, son, a lot of people are going to be telling you you're crazy, and maybe they're right. But I want to tell you three things. Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor to daredevil ratio in the world.

Mike Thompson

Ben, I pray to you every day. Please cure my mom's cancer. I know she's not as smart or powerful as you, but if you could help her, I sure would appreciate it.

Johnny Cakes

Ben, Does this mean we're not going to ride up to the lake this weekend? :(

Bill C.

Time to get a helmet, dummy.

Mai Wen

We're all wishing you well, even over here in Cincinnati where I'm the lone Steeler's fan in my office of Bengals and Browns fans! We're praying for you and hope that you recover without any serious side effects and continue your amazing career. You've inspired many people and I know that your future is bright.
