Default Has Ben gotten fat during the offseason

Below is a tidbit from Fox Sports.

NFL questions as we endure dog days of summer
http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/9...days-of-summer

"Who weighs more right now, Ben Roethlisberger or nose guard Casey Hampton? (The leader of the champs earned himself an indulgent offseason, but if he were thrown over the handlebars of his motorcycle and into a Chrysler New Yorker today, the car would be totaled.)"

Has anyone seen any recent video of him or has anyone seen him in person?

Has he gotten fat or is this typical Fox Sports crap? - mesa

He didn't look fat during the golf tournaments to me.

Maybe he decided he needed some extra padding for some reason.

A little weight can never hurt a QB that hits the turf about 50 times in a 16 week span

What impeccable credentials. I'm hanging on this obvious gridiron guru's every word.

I have heard this before about Ben in other offseasons. As long as Tomlin doesn't care, it's a non-issue.

The bigger Ben has gotten, the better IMHO... I'll never forget how skinny he got after the motorcycle accident in 2006.

Ben in Tahoe : "Do these golf pants make me look fat?"
