Big Ben Roethlisberger is one of the toughest quarterbacks in the NFL.  Even he can be knocked out of action based on the violent nature of football.

Ben Roethlisberger was knocked out of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football when he suffered injuries to his shoulder and ribs.  Big Ben is one tough dude.  The guy gets hit repeatedly and keeps on ticking.  His toughness isn’t questioned.

Even a QB as tough as Big Ben can suffer a serious injury.  The sport of football is incredibly violent and it cracks me up when I hear fans and former players say things about the NFL supposedly being a pansy game or 2-hand touch.  The NFL isn’t even close to 2-hand touch and I’ve turned red many times on “The Noe Show” explaining this very fact.  I didn’t turn too red in this video, but you can hear the slight hostility in my voice.
