BIG BEN NEEDS TO BUCKLE DOWN

Regardless of who the head coach of the Steelers will be in 2007 (and we don't think it will be anyone named Cowher or Grimm or Whisenhunt . . . or Joey Joe-Joe Junior Shabadoo), the guy leading the way starting next season needs to get quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to take his job more seriously.

Industry sources tell us that Roethlisberger's motto is "last in, first out" -- a reference to his substandard work ethic. He has developed a reputation for not working with his receivers, and for not studying film.

There's no room for complacency in the NFL, and we've got a feeling that other players in Pittsburgh are also guilty of cutting corners in the season after the long-coveted One for the Thumb. If the next coach can get Roethlisberger to bust his ass, it will go a long way toward getting others in the building to do the same.
who the hell is the source here??? I doubt someone that rushes back from accidents, surgerys and concussions has a poor work ethic.

I'm about as real as it gets when it comes to the steelers. I have critizted that problems with this team all year. I just dont question his work ethic. I question his piss poor decisions of rushing every single injury. This season is the coaching staffs fault as well as bens as well.

Be easy Duke. If you've done your homework,....you know that i and many others here have "kept it real" (so to speak) in regards to Ben's performance this season. (In my case,...since he's come into the League)
But at the same time it's productive to try to be objective when regarding the opinions of others,....regardless as to whether you agree with them or not.
By no means am i advising you or anyone else to "bite their tongues". I'm just saying,....("Bobby Deniro voice")......"A little more tact might be in order" LOL

Hey this isn't the first time I have heard and read that Ben had a questionable work ethic. Even his teammates said in the past that Ben looked terrible in practice and if you read between the lines that his teammates were trying to say that Ben's needs to put more effort into practice. But the thing was Ben got it done on gameday for the most part in his first two years so no problems. Plus when you factor in all the success Ben had in his first two that maybe he did slack alittle this year. Plus his health could have played a factor to.

Hey we all need alittle push from time to time so Ben maybe needs a push for next year. I think Ben has learned alot from this year and will rebound and play like the QB we know he can be next year.
