Week 2 Steelers vs Bears might not be as tough to win.

As most of you probably know already,  Big Ben went down yesterday at practice with a suspected ankle injury.

Turns out that there might be more to it.  According to the World Wide Leader Ben may actually have an achillies injury.  I don't know much about these types of injuries but I've heard that rehabbing a torn one can take anwhere from 6 months to a year.  You'd have to agree if this injury is more severe than origianally thought, the week 2 contest will be much more in our favor with Charlie Batch at the helm.  Although Charlie sports a 3-1 record lifetime with the Steelers I still say they are a totally different team.  I know it's way to early to know how all this will turn out but I thought it would be interesting to talk about at least.  Regular season is just around the corner......
