I actually got to watch PTI today after work and I saw that Ben was on. He had some interesting things to say reguarding Cowher. The guys asked him if the team tries harder for coaches they like rather then coaches they dont like.

First off, Ben never said well I like Cowher or anything, he just said they are all professional athletes and if they arent trying to win every game they shouldnt be there. But as long as you respect the coach that makes you want to play for him that much more. He also goes on to say that Tomlin So from what I take from that is
Ben did not infact have a great personal relationship with Cowher (as previously noted. This just confirms it).

The guys also asked about the line everyone uses....'worked harder in the offseason then ever before.' Ben said that it kind of depends. And that you constantly have to work or else other will surpass you. I found it interesting when he said he didnt spend as much time in the class room last year as he should have but rather the weight room trying to get bigger and stronger. He said this year it has been more mental preperation then physical and he feels better now then he did before he got drafted.

All in all a good interview comin from 2 morons that forgot what it means to be real journalists.

One thing is for sure. He seems very comfortable in the current situation and just from listening to him this year it is apparent that he is a much more mature young man. Maybe all it took was giving him a little more responsibility. So far, so good from Big Ben. It's nice to see him relaxed and ready to play. Go Stillers!!!

if he gets the protection, he will make it extremely hard for any defence. and the running game will open up more. which might cause us to win more games and have to play in the post season and if he continues...we'll have to go to the super bowl and if the protection dont stop...then the team will have to pick out another style of ring and carry that ol heavy trophy back to pittsburgh. I'll take that any time....

I think Ben made the right choice in spending more time in the clas room than the wieght room he obviously has been given the physical tools to play the position but there have been alot of guys in this league that had the physical gifts but not they didn't improve from a knowledge stand point. Physical ability will get you to play on sundays but constant development of the mental part of the game will insure you play on sundays for a long time.

I think it's great that he spent more time in the "classroom". He's got the physical ability!
