    Turns out Roethlisberger might have made up the whole thing for the publicity. Very weird.

    They probably can't cover him or else they would get punished by the league for not reporting it during the week. They denied it the entire time.

    What's the worse the NFL can do? Take away their Super Bowl title?

    I've.....seeeeen somebody with broken ribs. They don't move much, don't move fast, don't move for anything unecessary.

    I find it hard to believe he had broken ribs. Maybe a badass bruise, or just something that hurt a lot....but....the lady who I knew with broken ribs referred to the pain as, "giving birth through your side"

    seems that
    is playing in on this a little bit. No way he played the whole game with broken ribs.

    Apparently Joe doesn't read.

    If Pastorini can play with broken ribs why can no one else?? I understand in this case that Roethlisberger may have made this up, but to say no one can play with broken ribs - is wrong.
