The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is rumored to have had serious words with his receiver Mike Wallace after the teams win over the Bengals. Sources reported that Ben Roethlisberger was disappointed with the way Mike Wallace played Sunday night. Wallace had a tough go of it dropping 4 passes he should have caught. You may remember Wallace was a hold out this season wanting to get a contract similar to the same kind of money Larry Fitzgerald makes. Maybe missing all those practices with the Steelers hurt Wallace this season.
Ben Roethlisberger has a right to be upset with the play of Wallace. The Steelers have had trouble winning this season and when the receivers are hit right in the hands with the ball the Pittsburgh quarterback expects them to catch it. Pittsburgh is now 3-3 on the season with the win over the Bengals, it was the Steelers first win on the road this year. It would be interesting to know exactly what Roethlisberger said to Wallace after the Bengals game. If the reports is true, Roethlisberger did what any great team leader would do, he took his guy aside and probably tried to inspire him to stay focused.
Hey Pittsburgh Fans give us your opinions, do you think Roethlisberger really did take Wallace aside and talk to him? If so what would he have said to him? Juts leave your comments below…..
