Ben Roethlisberger didn’t resemble the lazy SOB, his teammates who didn’t have enough nuts to come out in the open and make their cheap comments in the game against the Detroit Lions today.
Roethlisberger looked like a guy that was on top of his game. He looked like a guy who puts in the work necessary to be labeled as one of the NFL elite quarterbacks.
It was a performance a guy who is anything but lazy would produce. This guy gives his all every time he steps onto the field. Roehtlisberger is a proven leader in the NFL and for his teammates to take cheap shots at him when the team is down, shows some don’t deserve to wear a Pittsburgh uniform.
Big Ben is a competitor. For guys in his own locker room to question the heart of this warrior is unthinkable. Ben Roethlisberger didn’t lead his Pittsburgh Steelers to 2 super bowl rings by being lazy.
He didn’t go out and beat the Detroit Lions who have one of the beat quarterbacks in the NFL by being lazy. He did it by completing 29 of the 45 passes he threw for 367 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Does this look like a guy who is lazy? The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming back into the race for the AFC North and it is because of the arm of Ben Roethlisberger who is doing it with a team that isn’t very good.
Because of Roethlisberger’s lack of laziness he now has his Steelers in a tie for second place in their division and they travel to take on the Browns next week in Cleveland.
Let me know next week if you still think Big Ben is lazy. To get a win over the Lions 37-27 doesn’t look like a lazy performance to me.
