Exclamation Who is this Michael Silver?? Big Ben NFL Interview Attacks Ben-Why?

I have just sat back and took in all the back and forth comments form NFL.com website. It appears this early whisper is turning into a roar on NFL.com. I cannot for the life of me figure out where this rumor mill comments are coming from. Also the aggressive nature of questions posed to Ben in interviews stresses me out. The link below please follow and then scroll to lower media player coverage of this issue. Interview addressed this Michael Silver and his comments that Ben will not change is playing style and will be use as a franchise chip next season to pull 1st round draft picks. What is going on here? Who is this Michael Silver character noted in interview? Any help here please...

Lastly if the action items brought forth in the interview takes place in 2014 - this will upset me deeply as a very long time supporter of this team and organization.

Drivel mixed with hearsay sprinkled with healthy amounts of rumor.

Is the NFL Network cheap-shotting & piling on Steelers Ben Roethlisberger?

One columnist thinks so, explains why.

Bob Smizik writes at post-gazette.com today:

The cheapest shot: Michael Silver, a decorated and respected writer, said this about Roethlisberger: ''... away from the facility he is not Peyton Manning."

That happens to be true and it happens to be meaningless. The easiest way to make someone look bad is to compare him to the best. Of course he’s not Peyton Manning away from the field. No one is.

That would be like saying a coach doesn’t have the offensive savvy of Bill Walsh or a lineman doesn’t work out like Mike Webster did.

There is no shame, as Silver tried to suggest, in not preparing like Peyton Manning.

2015 NFL Sig Mock Draft:

2 trades: our 1(22) to Dallas for 1(27) and 3(91), then our 2(56) and 3(87) to NY Giants for 2(40)

1(27) Kevin Johnson CB Wake Forest
2(40) Eli Harold OLB Virginia
3(91) Eric Rowe CB/FS Utah
4(121) Gabe Wright DT/DE Auburn
5(160) Sean Hickey OG/OT Syracuse
6(199) Titus Davis WR C Michigan
6(212) Kyle Emanuel DE/OLB N Dakota St
7(239) Cameron Clear TE/OT Texas A&M
