Roethlisberger not popular with teammates

"(Steelers QB) Ben Roethlisberger is not a well-liked teammate. He's arrogant and lazy. It's not a nice mixture in a steel city known for its toughness

Anyone else smell something? Its almost like someone took a WHIZ on this quote. It doesnt take a WHIZard to figure out who might still be picking off the withered vine of sour grapes.

There may have been a little bit of truth to this at the beginning......remember the Faneca quote? He was young and didn't know how to handle things at first, but I believe as time went on, his teammates have come to love and respect him. And I think he's worked hard for that respect. They sure stood up for him this year at training camp.

..........if you didn't know any better, you'd think that Ken Whisenhunt and Ben Roethlisberger actually like each other.

They do not. Welcome to the Grudge Bowl.

........ Roethlisberger has made it clear that he doesn't care for Whisenhunt's methods or his play calling. He said he disagreed with his former offensive coordinator on a lot of things during their time in Pittsburgh. He called Whisenhunt's offense "predictable." He even sympathized with Matt Leinart when the Cardinals' former starting quarterback was enduring some tough love from the coaching staff.

Neither man acknowledged the other when the Steelers came to Glendale in 2007. No handshakes, no hugs, nothing. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that new Steelers coach Mike Tomlin even met with Roethlisberger before that game, just to make sure his quarterback didn't say anything else outrageous.

ha ha!

It doesn't even say from which team these anonymous "scouts" are.

Good answer

Yeah I'm sure Rothlisberger's teammates really hated him when he delivered the game winning drive in the Super Bowl.
