Default Ben Roethlisberger getting ready for prime time


Wednesday, February 15, 2012

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


Ben Roethlisberger: "... as you get to a certain point, a certain age in this football thing, your body doesn't recover like it used to."

Ben Roethlisberger already has adjusted his game, and it has nothing to do with old or new coordinators, old or new offenses, things Art Rooney did or did not say.

It has plenty to do with his 30th birthday March 2.

"That's why I'm working out already," Roethlisberger said.

He began training at the Steelers facility on the South Side last week, days after he returned from an extended Pro Bowl stay in Hawaii. He talked to coach Mike Tomlin about where he is in his career and about the future.

"When I talked to Mike, I said I don't know how much longer I have to play, no one does; it could be two years, three years, it could be eight years. Who knows?" Roethlisberger said during an extensive interview Thursday.

"I'm hoping that I'm just starting in my prime. I've already been working out with [Garrett Giemont], our strength coach, already. I've never worked out this early. It's not like high-intensity, out killing myself, but I'm working out, I want to come to camp lighter than I've ever come, in better shape, because as you get to a certain point, a certain age in this football thing, your body doesn't recover like it used to."

thats great to hear.

he mustve been listening to all the fanboys on twitter, messageboards, and chatrooms, who have been complaining about him looking fat in his jeans.

also, i bet the meddling and lying owner, art II, told him to lay off the donuts while in passing at the facilities.

Now THAT, is EXACTLY what I look for in one of my favorite athletes and what I look for in the quarterback of my beloved football team. Hearing this from Roethlisberger gives me the chills and his comment about getting motivated to move ahead of Eli Manning in Super Bowls is something warrior's and Hall Of Fame mentality strives for.

A motivated Roethlisberger understanding his prime- years could be a devastating rude awakening for the rest of the NFL.

Ben's hearing Adrian's voice right now with the Rocky theme playing behind him "WIN. WIN!"

Great article. This is great news for Steelers fans around the world.

I'm definitely excited to hear his optimism looking forward, and that he's in a good, healthy mindset. Maybe now people will quit calling him fat, lol.

I think the wife has started nagging him about his weight. Nothing is quite as effective, except of course nagging from lovers on the side.

awesome to hear. He's heading into what could be the best 4 or so years of his career (barring an unfortunate major injury).

Thank you Todd Haley. First call after getting the OC job was to Ben, "Get your fat ass in the gym and get in shape"!. In a couple weeks we will see pictures of Ben studying film. OMG, this could happen!

Its good to hear that he realizes what he now knows what he has to do, not like before. Show up when ever he wanted. Maybe he copied from the book of Payton Manning!
