Frank Mir=Ben Roethlisberger

Hey guys, am I the only one who has noticed the similarities in these 2 athletes??? Other than the fact that they look almost identical, they both also lost a lot of their luster after being hurt in motorcycle accidents. Both were phenoms in their respective sport, coming out of nowhere and defeating the toughest of challengers and coming out on top. Then, get in a motorcycle accident and can never perform to their full potential again. Check out these convincing pics:
Frankie
Big Ben

Frankie?....nah that's Big Ben...isn't it?

It won't let me post these 2 great pics of Frank, but click here and look at the 1st two pics on the page...he looks just like the Black and White photo of Big Ben...seriously..

Anyway...any thoughts?

I see the similarities. But the true question is, who would win in a 3 round heavy weight fight?

Or maybe the question is who would go 30-1 as an NFL starter...someone please correct that I know it's not right I'm just way too lazy to look it up. It's gotta be close though right?

I say Big Ben whens by KO in first round. If he can throw a football like that, he can probably throw a powerful accurate punch.

He actually has really good takedown defense too, I've seen him shake off his fair share of lineman and linebackers. Even as recently as last week.

Well I seriously doubt Ben can take Frank in a fight. And i wouldnt say Bens lost it yet. He could still come back and be very succesful again where I dont think Mir will.

14-1 in Forum Bets

I'll be rooting for Mir when he fights Vera but I think he reached the end of his rope! Also, Big Ben would get KO'd if he ever tried fighting in the octagon!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Well, I actually noticed that they looked alike quite awhile ago, but then when Ben got in that wreck, I thought that was kinda wierd, and then when he start losing his luster a little bit here recently, like in the games against Jacksonville and Cincinnatti, it was even wierder. I've been meaning to make a thread and show you guys for quite a while now, but it slips my mind every time I get on.
