Default Steelers' Big Ben becomes a Bengals booster

Steelers' Big Ben becomes a Bengals booster
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Sunday, December 23, 2007


After throwing for 261 yards and three touchdowns in the Steelers' 41-24 win Thursday over the St. Louis Rams, Ben Roethlisberger didn't hesitate to say he would be cheering for the Cincinnati Bengals today.
A Cincinnati win over Cleveland would make the Steelers champions of the AFC North and guarantee them no worse than a No. 4 seed in the playoffs.

"I'm going to give (Bengals quarterback) Carson (Palmer) a call," Roethlisberger said.

No Steelers player will be rooting harder for the Bengals than Roethlisberger.


If the Steelers clinch the division title today, they will have the option of playing Roethlisberger sparingly, if at all, in their regular-season finale next Sunday at Baltimore.

Roethlisberger had a precautionary MRI taken Friday on the ankle he sprained late in the Steelers' win over the Rams. While the injury is not believed to be serious -- coach Mike Tomlin will give an update on the Pro Bowl quarterback's status Monday at his weekly news conference -- Roethlisberger could certainly use some time off. Roethlisberger, who has thrown a Steelers-record 32 touchdown passes this season, had been nursing a sore (throwing) shoulder prior to hurting his ankle.

A Bengals win isn't the only way that the Steelers can qualify for the postseason today. If the Tennessee Titans lose to the Jets, the Steelers will be no worse than a wild-card team in the playoffs.

"I don't look for help from anyone," Tomlin said. "I want to get in on our feet and because of what we do. If it happens, great; if it doesn't, so be it."

If the Browns beat the Bengals, the Steelers still would be in good position to win the division. They would claim the AFC North with a win over the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday or a Cleveland Browns' loss to the 49ers.


I like the sound of that "Pro Bowl quarterback"................. congrats again, Ben!

Really Scott? I could have sworn I saw him inside Paul Brown Stadium today with a group of Brown fans wearing a dog mask and barking at the camera.
