Default Big Ben back at it...

After a near-perfect rookie season, it's back to school for Ben Roethlisberger
Steelers quarterback getting head start on 2005 season

Where do you put the perfect student? The kid who aced all his tests, won every award and racked up records?



In the case of the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger, you put him to work.

Roethlisberger is back setting new standards. He has been working out and studying for the past month at the Steelers' UPMC facility, far earlier than anyone can remember any of their previous quarterbacks.

Roethlisberger might not be able to match his sensational rookie season, but it won't be for lack of trying this spring.

"The biggest thing is just the progression of the offseason," said Ken Whisenhunt, the team's offensive coordinator. "Having that is huge, especially from the standpoint of being the starter. That makes a big difference. It will be a little bit easier for him to prepare, knowing what to expect."

It all seemed too easy for Roethlisberger in 2004. Forced into the lineup in the second half of his second pro game because of an injury to Tommy Maddox, Roethlisberger and the Steelers did not lose another game until the AFC championship. Roethlisberger's Steelers went 13-0 in the regular season, more than double the perfect record of any previous rookie quarterback and a record never achieved by any, rookie or veteran.

He broke Dan Marino's 20-year-old rookie records for pass-completion percentage and passer rating. He earned the AFC offensive rookie of the year, the NFL Pepsi rookie of the year and the Dapper Dan Man of the Year. His No. 7 jersey was the league's hottest seller.

Here's the rest.. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05082/476109.stm

Only one thing left.

We don`t need to go 15-1.

We just need One-For-The-Thumb

Also, realize this...he had never been used to playing in that many games in a year. He was dog tired by the AFC Championship game. But I have a feeling that he won't let that happen to him ever again. He knows what's expected of him now...and more importantly, what he's CAPABLE of. Ben, we're all counting on you, now bring it home BRUTHA"!!!
