Forrest Roethlisberger

"Stupid is as stupid does," Forrest Gump said in the movie bearing his name.

After Monday's motorcycle accident involving Ben Roethlisberger, Gump could amend that statement to, "Stupid is as Roethlisberger does."

Everybody told the Steelers' QB that riding a motorcycle, let alone riding one without a helmet, wasn't a good idea. But Roethlisberger the wild child ignored everyone around him and continued to ride not only his Harley, but the crotch rocket on which he was injured Monday as well.

Was the accident his fault? It certainly doesn't appear that way.

But much like when I'm hunting, I'm not so much worried about what I'm going to do, but more so about what that guy next to me might try.

Early indications are that Roethlisberger will be OK to play this season once he recovers from a broken jaw, orbital bone and a number of lacerations.

That's the good news. The bad news is that given his past history, Roethlisberger may still be headstrong enough to climb back aboard another motorcycle in the near future.

Good blog headline, Dale, and I liked your column in today's O-R

Thanks Scott. As for the Bradshaw told you so, by the time Terry comments on it, it will be a month or two from now.
I don't think he will.
