im just trying to figure out this notion that ben has some rare insatiable need to be in the limelight. hmmmm. hes is a qb of a professional sports franchise. his job by definition puts him in the limelight. isnt wanting to play in the superbowl or go to the hall of fame wanting to be in the limelight?

i think its the same reason many brady fans hate on p. manning. brady has the rings yet manning has all the commercials, and big contracts/endorsements.

I have to disagree with that 100%. Maybe a little arrogant but unsociable, yea okay I guess, everyone is entitled to opnions but none of us really know him outside of what we see.

It's useless to try and figure him out.

oh, and dont sweat being called a troll. even i have been called a troll on my own forum. for speaking my own mind no less.
I'll give you two examples.

The oft-quoted motorcycle incident - that reeks of immaturity.

Bens fabricated foot injury - who pretends to have an injury and then gets contradicted by their HC?

Thats pretty embarrassing attention grabbing stuff if you ask me.

There is a difference between being a QB and being a primadonna.

is that all you got? a traffic accident and your own medical opinion of what was going on with bens body (foot)?

so that puts him in the same category as c. henry, pac man jones, marcus vick, terrell owens etc?

Steelers Notebook: It's a 'go' for Roethlisberger
Saturday, October 28, 2006

By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


Peter Diana, Post-Gazette
Ben Roethlisberger should start tomorrow against the Raiders in Oakland.
Click photo for larger image.





Barring some unforeseen circumstance or a change in his medical condition, Ben Roethlisberger will start at quarterback tomorrow against the Oakland Raiders, a week after he was knocked unconscious and had a concussion in Atlanta.

Roethlisberger went through a full practice for the second day in a row and has not had any problems passing all the tests necessary to receive medical clearance to play.

His condition will be monitored right up to game time to make sure there are no post-concussion symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness or blurred vision.

Roethlisberger is one of the primary reasons the team's passing game has come to life. In the past two games, he and Charlie Batch have combined to complete 41 of 55 passes (74.5 percent) for 677 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

You know you forget that the whole foot thing could have just been Ben thinking his toes were broken and then finding out later they weren't and then it was to late to say anything. I think he's a little to honest with the media sometimes. He tells it like it is and sometimes people take that the wrong way.
I dont think Ben comes off as arrogant or unsociable at all. In fact I think its just the opposit. Does an arrogant player take responsibilty for the teams 3 game losing streak? Does an unsociable player go out with his teamates? Ben and Charlie were at the Pitt game and Ben and Brett Keisel were at the basketball game this week.
And Ben apologized for the accident. LET IT GO! Cowher does have the best medical staff in the league. Hell the guy that invented the Impact test is onhis side. I think that if that doc says Ben can play, then he can play.

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.
