Ben shared the airwaves once again with the Cook & Poni Show for his weekly show, which was pushed back to 1pm this afternoon from it’s regular 11am time because of a morning practice.

Recap, courtesy of 93.7 The Fan:

111715What was the plan going into Sunday’s game – was he expecting to play?

“I talked to coach on Saturday and he basically said, ‘if we can rest you, we’re going to rest you. If you feel comfortable, I feel comfortable with you being the number two in case of emergency.’ Obviously seven plays into the game, there was an emergency.”

How does the injured foot feel after playing the majority of Sunday’s game against the Browns?

“It’s definitely a sore Monday and Tuesday, the adrenaline wears off. No setbacks, just typical game soreness.”

Will he be ready to take on the Seattle Seahawks after the bye?


On working with Antonio Brown and their chemistry together –

“He is special. It’s not always the prettiest thing and that’s something that I harp on him about a lot. No improvising until I improvise. Be on your details, be on your P’s and Q’s and I need to know exactly where you’re going to be every single time. And like I said, I stay on him about it because he’s not always perfect, but the thing is that even when he’s not perfect or I’m not perfect we still seem to make things happen and it’s a credit to our chemistry. We work together a lot. We talk a lot and when he’s on his P’s and Q’s and he’s in the spot he’s supposed to be, there’s so much trust.”

That front flip into the endzone –

“You know, he gets caught up in the moment. I said listen, ‘if you get hurt, was it worth it? Whether it’s career ending or season ending, was it worth it?’ And he is so apologetic about it. He’s like, ‘No, I’m so sorry.’ I told him, “AB, that was probably one of the most athletic things I’ve ever seen anybody do…that was so impressive, don’t ever do it again.”
