When Ben's in a bad mood...
Funny moment on Saturday: Roethlisberger wasn’t in a real good mood, probably because of the nagging groin and probably because a couple guys dropped passes in the 2-on-2 red-zone drill. So then he really started humming the ball around. One of the other QBs threw a fade and overshot his target. It instead went to a red-haired fan who dropped the easy pass in front of his son. The guy acted a little (like a jerk), so maybe that’s why on Roethlisberger’s next attempt he threw the ball about a hundred miles an hour over the WR’s head and right into the same guy’s chest, who, of course, dropped it. Little nasty from the big guy. I chuckled.
"It seems every year there is some reason they are trying to doubt me. Small school, I was playing as a rookie and now this. I?m looking forward to proving to people that I?m up to the task."
He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.
