When Ben Roethlisberger had a beard the Steelers won the Superbowl but the following year when Ben shaved his beard, the Steelers went 8-8 and missed the playoffs.

his beard isn't a good luck charm. he could win the super bowl next year without a beard. this year they just had a lot of injured people. that's all
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Some of the most brilliant minds and influential people of histor had beards. For instance, Confucius, Jesus, Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, Karl Marx, Jim Morrison, Vincent Van Gogh, Zues, Jerry Garcia, and, of course my father all had beards.

My Father, for instance, kept his beard for hunting purposes, in order to keep his face warm in cold weather and against the elements. A beard would certainly serve Big Ben for this purpose and possibly help his concentration in inclement weather, which will certainly occur if the Steelers must travel to New England in the playoffs.

As I've already stated, many historical heroes have had beards. Big Ben could easilly be another if he would grow his beard back. And plus his beard made him look like rugged and tough.
