T.O. says Big Ben is “soft”

George Wilson, Terrell Owens

In this week’s episode of The T.Ocho Show, which should be renamed for now The 2-Ocho Show, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco discuss among other things the $25,000 fine imposed on Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour for an open-handed blow to the head that put Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on the ground in the second quarter of Sunday’s game between the two teams.

I liked it,” Owens said.  “He’d probably do it again for another 25.”

Ochocinco said that Seymour “can’t be swinging on people out there on the field,” comparing the conduct to the WWE.  T.O. preferred to invoke a different sport.

“A hockey player would have took that and kept on tickin’,” T.O. said.  “It just shows you how soft Ben is.”

Yeah, Ben’s soft.  The guy who played against the Colts with a pair of Mr. Potato Head arms, who made no attempt to tackle safety Aaron Francisco after an interception that resulted from a T.O. short-arm effort, and who made no effort to recover what appeared to be a fumble by Francisco is calling a guy who got knocked to the ground by a cheap shot “soft.”

Owens also has his facts wrong.  Roethlisberger did take the blow and “kept on tickin’.”  And the Steelers went into halftime with a big lead, and they weren’t outscored 42-3 the rest of the way.

    Ummm TO? Ben “kept on tickin” with more scoring drives after that.

    wow this guy says something stupid every 10mins!

  3. citizenstrange says: Nov 23, 2010 10:17 PM

    Roethlisberger may have his faults – and I criticize him freely – but he is as tough as a bar of iron.

    T.O. has jumped the shark and is now simply a pathetic, old, attention whore.

  4. piratefreedom says: Nov 23, 2010 10:20 PM

    to be fair Seymour wasn’t a drunk and helpless little girl so Ben can’t be expected to do anything about that slap

  5. tiffpats4eva says: Nov 23, 2010 10:20 PM

    Ben is really soft, but that’s a brave card for T.O. to play. Wow.

    How many times has T.O. cried like a baby? How many times has T.O. gave up on a play because he was too soft to take a hit?

    Both Big Ben and T.O. are soft.

  6. myspaceyourface says: Nov 23, 2010 10:22 PM

    Coming from the same duo that predicted a Super Bowl before this season started.

    ha ha ha ha

  7. jagfanchokesflorio says: Nov 23, 2010 10:23 PM

    T.O. is just a little distraught because he was turned down by Ben, which we all no Big Ben never walks away from anyone.

  8. tiffpats4eva says: Nov 23, 2010 10:25 PM

    I love that photo, Florio.

    That’s awesome.

    Big Ben says T.O. is 2 and 8.

  12. tobygrizwold says: Nov 23, 2010 10:29 PM

    I think Ben’s victims can attest to the fact that he was hard.

  13. nps6724 says: Nov 23, 2010 10:30 PM

    I have no love for Ben, but the dude is tough as iron. He has had a terrible OL for 4 or 5 years now and he still stands back there in the pocket, taking shot after shot. He’s a tough SOB.

  14. leroysbutler says: Nov 23, 2010 10:33 PM

    Big Ben’s not soft when he’s raping women.

  15. benchokeshischikin says: Nov 23, 2010 10:33 PM

    Big Ben is soft brained; little Ben is the hard brained.

    Ben= 1 team and 2 Super bowl rings
    T.O.= 5 teams, super bowl loser, cancer to 3 teams (so far), and HE CRIED AT A PRESS CONFERANCE! THATS SOFT!
    Dec 12 Cincy at Pitt…I smell a 38-3 Steeler win

  18. tobygrizwold says: Nov 23, 2010 10:37 PM

    I forgot Florio was a Steeler fan as he lives in WV. I wondered why he sounded so defensive.

  19. canadianvikingfaniii says: Nov 23, 2010 10:42 PM

    T.O. didn’t say that, his brother lipsynced his actual words on the matter.

    Big Ben Roethlisberger is not soft, he is quite hard. At least with the ladies. In all seriousness, big Ben is one tough dude. Always fun to watch come Sunday.

  20. igottz5onit says: Nov 23, 2010 10:47 PM

    owens is tissue paper.

  21. flyboy8894 says: Nov 23, 2010 10:49 PM

    I’m not defending Seymour and he did hit him in the facemask, but would someone just acknowledge that Ben flopped like a french soccer player?!

    Watch the very slow motion replay. Seymour gets him with a glancing blow and about a half-second LATER, Ben jerks backward and then goes down.

    Again, Seymour likely deserves worse than he got, but Ben deserved at least a yellow card.

  22. buhner1991 says: Nov 23, 2010 10:49 PM

    Big Ben – 1 team, 2 Super Bowl Rings

    T.O. – 5 teams, 0 Super Bowl Rings

    To be fair, TO never raped nobody

  25. flpunx says: Nov 23, 2010 10:52 PM

    As a Steelers fan, I’ll take a “soft” 2 time Super Bowl winning quarterback over an aging, past his prime loud mouth braggart.

    Another class act from the disaster called the Bengals. Enjoy the cellar of the division, T.O. I mean even the Browns have a better record. The Browns.

  26. demolition510 says: Nov 23, 2010 10:52 PM

    Tell’em why you mad Florio. Lol. Eating right into his hands. Sucka.

  27. descendency says: Nov 23, 2010 10:58 PM

    Soft in the pants maybe.

  28. bigbeefyd says: Nov 23, 2010 11:01 PM

    Just so we’re clear…Ben hasn’t raped anyone in something like 4 months now. He should probably get some sort of community service award. After he finishes whining like a b**tch about getting smacked upside the head.

  29. jbkauff says: Nov 23, 2010 11:05 PM

    For the first time ever, I’m going to have to side with FLORIO on this one:

    Big Ben is NOT soft…..Well, he WASNT soft when he was forcing himself on that poor woman

  30. jameswestphal says: Nov 23, 2010 11:06 PM

    In 5yrs he’ll be out of football and just about broke. That’s when I want a camera on him.

  31. riverhorsey says: Nov 23, 2010 11:15 PM

    who cares what T.O. says the guys career has been a loser for 10 years

  32. holeinone09 says: Nov 23, 2010 11:16 PM

    Seeems to me that Ben got up off the ground and kept making TDs to lead his team to victory, something Terrible Owens hasn’t done for quite a while. Now that Terrible Owens has apparently given up his desire to catch a football in a crowd (ie LOST HIS NERVE) and his team stinks, he will do anything to stay in the limelight. Weekly, he makes an ass out of himself by saying something stupid, merely to get some attention. That is all he cares about since his career is just about over. Who will want him after this year?

    He is a has-been, and a long-time team troublemaker. He is jealous of Ben’s current success, something he will never have again.

    Who really cares what Owens has to say anymore?

    GO STEELERS!!

  33. moolah954 says: Nov 23, 2010 11:19 PM

    first Revis now Big Ben T.O why so serious must be caause of the 2 wins

  34. tiproast says: Nov 23, 2010 11:20 PM

    Some in this thread have said T.O. is soft.

    I’m not a fan of his, but I remember his SB 39 performance.

    His career has trended downward since then, but he turned in one of the all-time gutsiest performances that day in February.

  35. youboettcha says: Nov 23, 2010 11:23 PM

    First of all, I thought it was obvoius that Ben took that punch and decided to drop to the ground to make sure the officials called a penalty.

    Second of all, does anybody remember the play last year where a pass-rusher coming from Roethlisberger’s right side was coming with a full head of steam, then Ben turn towards the guy and stared into his eyes and scared him into falling backwards? That wasn’t soft.

    Seroiusly, if anyone remembers it, let me know. I can’t find it on youtube, but it’s NUMBER ONE on the most badass plays of 2009. NUMBER TWO is on youtube. Just search “Willis McGahee Stiff Arms Hiram Eugene vs OAK.wmv”. It’s 14 seconds into a 38 second clip.

    @footballsavant
    keep those coming! still funny…and for the record (to be fair), the EVIDENCE showed Ben didnt either

  38. jgrange says: Nov 23, 2010 11:36 PM

    What does TO’s team falling against Buffalo have to do with being soft again? Reaching for straws here considering there are 30 guys that enter the game for them throughout the duration of it. But, I guess nobody can criticize your beloved team or its players without you harping about it. Also, TO seeks attention and you constantly give it to him. TO won on this account and Florio’s ego is soft in this case.

  39. grs27 says: Nov 23, 2010 11:40 PM

    By talking about Ben, T.O. distracts Florio and the rest of us from the HUGE embarrassment in Buffalo AND to the amazing game that Bills WR johnson had. He not only outplayed T.O and Ocho…but was also able to pull off a better stunt (the “why so serious” shirt) than either of them could have come up with. T.O got beaten at his own game.

  40. daytonsfinest says: Nov 23, 2010 11:47 PM

    If he wasn’t feeling it why’d he have to keep stretching his jaw on the sidelines? What a punk.

    Florio you kill me with how much time you waste trash talking the Bengals. It must be nice to internet trash talk a team who is going through hard times. It’s like being the weak member of a pack who kicks a person while they’re down.

    Ben’s hard enough to crack a windshield……

  41. skleech22 says: Nov 23, 2010 11:54 PM

    At least Big Ben can take a punch, if that was Bieber Brady….. Goodell would have been down on the field with a bazooka!!!! DON’T TOUCH MY BRADY!!!!!!

  42. east96st says: Nov 23, 2010 11:58 PM

    Wow, Florio. Lots of anger and resentment in that post. We all know you are an admitted Steeler fan but it was just T.O. being T.O. If you didn’t post what they said in that show, only the five of you that actually watch it would ever know what was said.

  43. bengalsfan513 says: Nov 24, 2010 12:02 AM

    superbowls dont make men,he got almost knocked out with very little effort from seymore

    in a mans eyes thats soft, i bet he thinks the same thing in the bed at night like most who get knocked out

    most women abusers are chumps so im not surprised, i thought it was fantastic he got knocked on his ass

  44. nanner12wojo says: Nov 24, 2010 12:09 AM

    TO,
    Please retire. Nobody will miss you. You once provided some entertainment value, but not much else because no winning franchise ever contained you on their roster. Go try acting, but we all know we’ll never see you in a relevant role. I can’t wait until your face is off the TV forever. And, please god voters don’t put this bum in the hall of fame because he has 150 TDs. Everything about him is the anti-winner. What a joke. Shut up please.

    Sincerely,
    Big Ben Hater

    @east96st

    I was thinking the same thing while reading the post. Every week Florio seems to have the need to rehash some of TO’s mindless dribble from that week’s show. Florio gives TO the attention he craves, (that no one else is bothering to give him anymore), then the next week TO is right back out there with his bs, mindless dribble.

    I’ve never watched the moronic show, but every week because of Florio I get to hear about it. You can do better, Mike!

  47. cmr123 says: Nov 24, 2010 12:46 AM

  48. sweetnlow44 says: Nov 24, 2010 12:48 AM

    skleech22, did you just say that Ben can take a punch? By taking a punch, you mean flailing to the ground writhing in a fetal position for a minute, then yes, he sure can take a punch.

  49. tk1966 says: Nov 24, 2010 1:21 AM

    I am amazed at the morons and idiots who are either delusional or simply make up crap just to prove how much they dislike Roethlisburger – watch any video of the punch. Seymour hits him squarely in the jaw with the heal of his hand. That’s a lot different than “a slap”, and it sure isn’t a “glancing blow”. He also doesn’t wait a “half second” and then “jerk back” and fall to the ground. I challenge any one of you tough guys here to allow someone to give you the same shot, unsuspected, and not fall to the ground.

  50. andyprough says: Nov 24, 2010 1:29 AM

    I thought it was awesome seeing Chris Kemoeatu get after it with Richard Seymour. Chris didn’t back down one bit, and just kept battling and fighting

    I think Chris earned a lot of respect on Sunday, and probably turned a corner for his career. If he continues to play with that kind of passion and energy, he’s going to start playing in some Pro Bowls

  51. goldsteel says: Nov 24, 2010 1:35 AM

    Well, I thought the punch was hysterical. I couldn’t stop laughing. And I’m a Steelers fan. I was thinking, “Yes Roger, this is the NFL.” Not the pasteurized nonsense Goodell tries to drive down our throats. I guess Richard and Ben won’t be exchanging Christmas cards this year?

    GO STEELERS!

  52. macjacmccoy says: Nov 24, 2010 1:58 AM

    You better be careful Florio your Black and Gold panties are showing. You sound like a girl friend whos boyfriend just got beat up. “He is to Tough….it was a cheap shot …. He didnt get beat up… He won …. the only reason he fell down is because he tripped ”

    Im sorry but if you run up on a man from behind get in his face and talk crap you better be ready to get hit. Especially after just beating him at something when hes upset. That’s why its not a cheap shot.

    That’s why LeGarrette Blount wasnt wrong when he hit that idiot and neither was Seymour.

    Where are all the stories pointing out that Ben obviously hasnt grown up and proved he’s still the same guy that did all those horrible things this off season. A guy thats matured doesnt act like that. If it was Michael Vick that did that there would be 50 stories posted about it already on PFT.

  55. boblavoie says: Nov 24, 2010 6:43 AM

    The TO and Ocho Show? Is that like in Beavis and Butt Head? Both these guys are soft – soft in the head. I saw this pair up close in NE – I thought I was at Comedy Central.

  56. dscib says: Nov 24, 2010 7:31 AM

    And we all thought this blog was a waste of time…!

  57. newshutr says: Nov 24, 2010 7:31 AM

    I don’t know. Ben is pretty tough.. Who else could take on a Chrysler and asphalt and go on to win another Super Bowl..?

    And as for T.O. ever raping anyone…ask Buffalo how they feel…

  58. joetoronto says: Nov 24, 2010 7:43 AM

    Ben is soft but not compared to Lynn Swan.

    Now THERE’S a softy.

  59. steeelfann says: Nov 24, 2010 8:07 AM

    A few thoughts:

    1. Chuck Noll, a wise man, had a few favorite sayings; one he would use toward these two clowns would be, “Empty barrels make the most noise”.

    2. Roethlisberger is not soft. Dramatic at times, yes; soft, far from it.

    Which leads us to………Who exactly is the target audience for this idiotic show featuring the thoughts of these two idiots? I thought the Amazing Race was indicative of how far our culture and brainpower has regressed………until I heard about this show. I mean, who freaking would put advertising dollars on this show?

    3. TO, I just found the 24 million and 1 reason to want to puke on you. You are a wuss. I have other words, but they won’t publish this comment if I do.
    Just how much attention do you crave? You musta got locked in a closet too many times during your childhood. I blame the media for their lack of values for even interviewing you after a game. Pathetic.

  61. uhnoreally says: Nov 24, 2010 8:13 AM

    wait.

    WR’s & QB’s are the wussies of the field. If those two fought, one or both would ask for a time out during the fight. Then both would shake hands, hug and cry after the fight.

    All they do is receive hits – what is the “manly” part in that?

    They are people that like to get beat up.

    Period.

    Pure and simple.

  65. freakish213 says: Nov 24, 2010 8:54 AM

    I’m not sure how calling T.O. out about his own softness in any way vindicates Big Ben from being soft himself. It doesn’t. I see your point, the pot calling the kettle black, but Ben took a girly dive after that “blow to the head” and if he wasn’t faking it, he’s soft.

    Amazing the lengths people will go to twist facts merely to support their hatred for someone.

    Ben destroyed the Raiders with his play, and Seymour couldn’t take it anymore. If he would have hit Brady or Manning like that, he would probably be suspended today.

    He seemed pretty soft with his foot up the Steelers’ ass.

    Right, with full protection of Goodell and the refs.
    That’s why they moved the umpire behind the backfield, so li’l Tommy could summon flags more easily.

  73. xli2006 says: Nov 24, 2010 9:45 AM

    “Soft”? I think Ben’s preferred term would be “Flacid”, but he forgives you T.O. and thanks you for the Gift Basket of Blondes you sent to his room.

  74. meso0rnery says: Nov 24, 2010 10:12 AM

    tiffpats4eva,

    If the Patsies are so good, then why do you feel the need to troll all of the articles about the Steelers? Do you ever see people troll Lions or Browns articles just to talk trash? No, because those teams suck, and pose no threat to anyone… Oh,… that’s right… the Browns destroyed the Patsies…

  75. ellej28 says: Nov 24, 2010 10:12 AM

    I wish people would get over the problems that Big Ben has had and focus on the job he does on the football field. There is a lot of jealousy in these comments I have read. Too bad.
    I don’t think for one minute Ben is soft. He is the best quarterback in the NFL. That should be what people care about. I have seen him interact with the players and I have never seen him give a cheap shot to anyone.
    If you think I am a STEELER fan, you would be correct. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, I am a proud member of the STEELER NATION! You keep going Ben, you have a lot of people all over this country that are behind you all the way!!!!!

  76. tiffpats4eva says: Nov 24, 2010 10:12 AM

    @ Florio’s Lawyer

    So it’s the refs’ fault you guys couldn’t stop Tom or get into end zone?

    Yikes. Talk about soft.

  77. rajbais says: Nov 24, 2010 10:12 AM

    Owens is only playing soft because he can’t be injured when he needs a new (and big) contract.

  78. somesome says: Nov 24, 2010 10:16 AM

    I am sure most Steeler fans who are upset about TOs comment have not seen how tongue-in-cheeck this comment was on a show that supposedly NOBODY watches.

    But trying to turn this back on to TOs softness is ridiculous. I am by no means a TO fan and don’t want him on my team. But one thing is for sure I take TOs toughness over Big Bens any day.

    I take the guy playing in the super bowl with a broken ankle with fresh pins and blood soaked sock running routes all out over a just physically big lumbered guy any day…. Ben is a bid dude, that does not make him tough. Doug Flutie was tougher than Ben will ever be.
    Wake up Steelers, not everybody on your team is a stough as the logo on the helmet, not everybody is Hines Ward. Remember last year when Ben did NOT want to play in B’more ?????

  79. psousa1 says: Nov 24, 2010 10:29 AM

    He seemed pretty soft with his foot up the Steelers’ ass.

    Right, with full protection of Goodell and the refs.
    That’s why they moved the umpire behind the backfield, so li’l Tommy could summon flags more easily.
    ________________

    LOL and so continues the tradition of the Steelers (and Ravens) never losing a game. It was always the refs, or the league….or or or……If only there was a way that both teams could win when the Steelers play the Ravens, the NFL would be perfect, with both going 16-0 every year (as god intended), both winning the conference, and both winning the Superbowl. Somehow, every other team in the league would go 0-16 and balance to the universe would be restored.

    @ everybodygotaids

    Agreed. I just think the Ravens whine more than any other team in the history of the NFL.

    Ray Lewis whinged before they lost against the Falcons.

    Suggs is still whinging about the Pats beating them over a month ago and not to mention our past Super Bowl wins.

    I hate the Ravens. The Ravens are soft.

    I wish people would get over the problems that Big Ben has had and focus on the job he does on the football field. There is a lot of jealousy in these comments I have read. Too bad.
    I don’t think for one minute Ben is soft. He is the best quarterback in the NFL. ____________________

    WTF are you talking about? Best quarterback in the NFL? Was there a mass suicide by good quarterbacks last night that I’m not aware of?

    If you think I am a STEELER fan, you would be correct. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, I am a proud member of the STEELER NATION! You keep going Ben, you have a lot of people all over this country that are behind you all the way!!!!!

    Unfortunately, he didn’t go to prison, so the number of people behind him is much smaller than it otherwise would be. They would have been behind him….all the way.

    Ben’s a toad and that’s a fact. But he’s one hell of a ball player. If anything he should get an espy for best dramatic fall during a game or something for that preformance. It looks pretty clear that Ben came up behind Seymour and said something to tick him off and that’s why Seymour hit him. Not that it’s an excuse but Ben can bring out the worst in people sometimes.

  84. muchmaligned says: Nov 24, 2010 11:25 AM

    Please stop calling every punch that gets thrown at a gum-flapper a “cheap shot.” Not surprisingly, it’s always the diminutive piss ants (Florio) among us who make this mistake. When two grown men are standing in front of each other and one of them gets hit in the face, that is not a cheap shot. If you are running your mouth, you should be expecting to get hit in it, no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

  85. shehan2 says: Nov 24, 2010 11:27 AM

    Seriously the only reason the guy has a career is extending plays and staying vertical while some of the biggest fastest people on the planet run at him and try and drag him to the ground – but one bitch slap and goes down like a sack of potatoes?

    If that’s all it takes to bring down Ben then I don’t see how he could have raped those girls. On the plus side look for opponents blitz attempts to look more like sissy fights this week.

    Can you please fill me in on whatever came of Tom Brady ordering his bodyguards to shoot at the paparazzi? I think he should feel lucky that he is not in prison for attempted murder. I bet the guys in prison would LOVE to get a piece of Brady. With his long flowing hair, he’d look just like a girl from behind!

  89. radrntn says: Nov 24, 2010 11:49 AM

    anybody who drops to the ground from a slap, is not only soft, but has a chin made of glass.

    Gotta love florio defending his steelers. My only question how is it a cheap shot when he was all up in his face talking smack. I respect seymour for only slapping him, I would have punched him.

  90. radrntn says: Nov 24, 2010 11:55 AM

    besides the only cheap shot in that game was the blind side hit from behind from stevenson on the steelers that took out scotts acl, and ended his season….it drew a flag, but no fine or no suspension, plus no steeler fans (or players lmao) saying anything about that hit.

    Steelers are lucky the refs have their back…their o-line sucks and does not know how to block. They only know how to grab hold of a defensive player and pull them to the ground……

    at least Ben can finally say he beat the raiders, on a day he got beat….lmao

    First of all, I thought it was obvoius that Ben took that punch and decided to drop to the ground to make sure the officials called a penalty.

    I am sure that Joe Frazier took the Ali punch so he could get a standing 8 count…(steelers fans, enough said) Oh yeah and the refs are out for you, just ask the seahawks.

  93. joetoronto says: Nov 24, 2010 12:27 PM

    This story is about Roethlisberger, not Brady or Manning, or any other QB.

    It’s about him and how he flopped around after getting bitch slapped on the helmet.

    That’s what it’s about.

  94. blfdnj says: Nov 24, 2010 12:37 PM

    Let’s see what happens on Dec. 12th when T.O. comes to our house. Seymour’s slap, T.O.’s statement & most of these comments all indicate some personal issues. Someone want to slap T.O. when he celebrates a play? …oh that doesn’t happen, my bad.

  96. allenrg says: Nov 24, 2010 12:43 PM

    Lets ask respect and fact questions.

    Q: Does Ben deserve respect?
    A: Not right now, but he will get it back.

    Q: Does TO deserve respeect?
    A: No.

    Q: Is TO spouting off due to jealousy?
    A: Probably.

    Q: Has TO shown he can be a team player, support his team and be an asset to get to the Super Bowl?
    A: No.

    Q: Did Richard Seymour lose his cool because of the game?
    A: Yes.

    Q: Did Ben & team continue to pound the Raiders?
    A: Yes.

    My opinion:
    I am tired of players like TO talking, but not producing. Talk with action, it speaks volumes…..just not the action Seymour used.

  97. chrisvegas says: Nov 24, 2010 12:50 PM

    Big Ben is soft? That isn’t what his raped victims are saying.

  98. svenhoek86 says: Nov 24, 2010 1:00 PM

    This coming from the crying “he’s my QB” traveling side show TO?

    If Ben’s soft, then whats that gonna make you after you get beat twice by him and are sitting at home in January wondering which team of rejects will sign their own death warrant and sign you in the off season?

    Oh right, an idiot.

  99. jceasar42 says: Nov 24, 2010 1:08 PM

    You guys are missing the real humor in the whole Seymour-Roethlisberger punch. The funniest part was watching Ben, Byron, and one of the coaches laugh on the sidelines after “Big Rich” got ejected. I was laughing right with them. Take a big lead and get the raiders best defensive player kicked out on the same play, awesome.

    And to say the refs are on the steelers side is ridiculous. If James Harrison would have hit campbell with a fraction of the force Seymour used he would not only have been kicked out, but Godell would have fined him 2 mil and suspended him for the rest of the season.

  100. rcali says: Nov 24, 2010 1:34 PM

    SuperBowl Wins:
    Big Ben: 2
    Owens and Chad Johnson: 0

  101. aious says: Nov 24, 2010 3:31 PM

    Well, maybe Ben is soft yet he has 2 Super Bowl rings and TO has zero

  102. cbass59 says: Nov 24, 2010 4:20 PM

    Maybe TO should do more sit-ups in his driveway.

    This coming from a cancer who destroys every team he joins???

    It’s bad enough that TO and Ochostinko spend more time entertaining off the field than on the field.

    Why on earth would anyone want either of these two jokes on their team? TO is a cancer and Ochostinko cares more about dancing with the stars than getting better/WINNING.

  103. cbass59 says: Nov 24, 2010 4:30 PM

    Do you know why Big Ben, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, etc don’t have radio shows?

    Because they are busy winning.

    LOL Cincy!! This is the reason you’ve had 18 losing seasons in the past 20 years: You have jerks on your team who don’t focus on winning.

    Great organization!

  104. arcaero says: Nov 24, 2010 5:22 PM

    I wish Seymour had hit Ben a lot harder. I think I speak for every daughter’s father in saying so.

    Ben showed he still a trash talking punk who has learned nothing about being a man.

  105. cbass59 says: Nov 24, 2010 5:43 PM

    arcaero:

    Trash talk? What did Ben say? He was going to congratulate his O lineman (what he does after each TD). He wasn’t trash talking. Stop the hate, dude. Grow up.

    As a father, just keep your daughter from being a slut. That’s all Ben’s guilty of: having sex with loose women.

    Actually cbass, according to the rape kit done on DTF, he isn’t even guilty of that. The kit showed that there was no evidence of sexual intercourse that night… But I like where you are going with this…

    I’m not defending Seymour and he did hit him in the facemask, but would someone just acknowledge that Ben flopped like a french soccer player?!

    Watch the very slow motion replay. Seymour gets him with a glancing blow and about a half-second LATER, Ben jerks backward and then goes down.

    Again, Seymour likely deserves worse than he got, but Ben deserved at least a yellow card.

    That is the funniest / most honest post I have seen yet on the subject. “sucker-punch” or not, Ben couldn’t have gone down that easily. My first thought was he watches too much soccer. Of course, he did get Raiders best player off the field. So he might be smarter than we have given him credit for. But lets not forget Seymour was in 3 different dead ball scuffles during the game before that. Maybe he just didn’t want to play that day and found his way out.

    Well, I’m not a Steelers fan. It’s just my opinion that Big Ben took that shot and tried to draw a penalty (or, more accurately, ensure a penalty) on Seymour. I don’t think Ben is soft, nor do I think it was right for him to gloat in Seymour’s face.

  109. steelerdynasty2010 says: Nov 26, 2010 9:51 AM

    so to sum all this up, Richard Seymour (a 300 lb, defensive lineman, and several time pro-bowler) is too weak to have been able to knock over an NFL QB (yes, ben’s a big dude, but he aint 3 bills)? i really love this site, its an idiot magnet. This is some really funny stuff. I love how all of you are able to discern what was said and to whom in about 3 seconds of video footage.
    1. was it a cheap shot? YES.
    2. did ben flop or is he as soft as cotton? hard to tell. (referencing a SLOW MOTION REPLAY and a half second time lapse does not prove a flop bballbm)
    3. is richard seymour strong enough to knock ben down? i would think so, its part of his job description. and if he cant do it when he isnt looking, then he needs a new line of work.
    4. and finally, is ben the only person in the NFL who talks trash now? i doubt it. are you guys for everybody in the league getting smacked around for talking a little smack? yea, that’s pretty professional. grow up kids and expect the same from the professionals you cheer.

  110. kekkil says: Nov 26, 2010 11:44 AM

    Yea, I think some of you guys certainly got it right.
    Ben wanted seymore to leave the field. tired of gettin hit by him and holding or what have you
    I’m a steeler fan , but I like both of these guys. I had a good laugh. we need a little more of this in football. that way some of us dont have to watch smackdown as much

  111. tommykk says: Nov 28, 2010 6:00 AM

    Sean Taylor and all skins fans know TO is soft

  112. buzzardluck says: Nov 28, 2010 12:31 PM

    The back and fort about who is tough or not is elementary. TO knows better. He’s just trying to bait Ben and the Steelers. The thing that is senseless is all of the commenting on Big Bens “GUILT” of sex crimes. You people don’t KNOW what happened. The prosecutor in charge of the case knew and there’s no way that he’s going to pass up the opportunity to take down a personality like Ben. Get past your small minds. It shouldn’t take but a second.

  113. drewboyy says: Nov 28, 2010 7:53 PM

    ben is soft cause hes more mature and just walks away? T.O used to be one of my favorite players..but if he encourages immaturity and childishness…then maybe he should go back to pee wee football…this is a mans sport…grow up and have fun…dont try and hurt the QB cause ur afraid of losing…lol
