Public relations people usually try to be diplomatic, but the Baltimore Ravens’ PR man took a little shot at Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at the annual league meetings this week.
The shot was taken during the media breakfast for AFC coaches, where about 30 members of the media waited to grill Steelers coach Mike Tomlin about Roethlisberger. Only five reporters wanted to talk to Ravens coach John Harbaugh.
Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun reports that Ravens
public relations executive Kevin Byrne observed the sparse crowd around Harbaugh’s table and made a joke contrasting the
personal lives of Roethlisberger and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
Said Byrne, “I guess that’s what happens when you’ve got a quarterback who prefers to spend his nights watching TV on his mom’s couch.”
