Default Re: But is it Too Late to Fix Ben ?!

He's been at this now going into his eighth season and he is who he is.
Trying to change anything in him now is a waste of time and could actually do more harm than good.
If the Rooney's don't like that, they can always point him towards the door.
You say more than you know. He has been in the league for 8 years, and has been allowed to stagnate and then digress for 6 of them. His first 2 years in the NFL resisted being pushed to develop, as if somehow just being Ben Roethlisberger entitled him to league leading stats and points on the scoreboard.

While I can't prove it, it seems quite likely to me that Ben had too much influence in letting the HC candidate who took the Arizona Cardinals, (yes I know it was just once, but look at the organization), to the Superbowl go to Arizona, specifically because he expected some development from the diva.
