Ben Roethlisberger: A lot of it is my fault

roethlisberger

If the Steelers had won Super Bowl XLV, Ben Roethlisberger would have been praised as a future Hall of Famer who had earned his third Super Bowl ring. But the Steelers lost. And Roethlisberger knows that means he’ll take plenty of the blame.

“There’s a lot of what ifs. There’s a lot of throws I’d like to have back,” Roethlisberger said. “We turned the ball over. A lot of that is my fault.”

Roethlisberger had a mediocre game against the Packers, completing 25 of 40 passes for 263 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Particularly costly was the first-quarter interception that Green Bay’s Nick Collins returned for a touchdown.

Collins said he got a read on Roethlisberger and saw it coming.

“I was able to read Big Ben and got a nice jump on the ball,” Collins said. “I made a couple cuts to get into the end zone.”

    no $hit sherlock!!!

    The Packers were simply the better team out there tonight.

  4. techvet says: Feb 7, 2011 12:39 AM

    At least he manned up and owned the bad game.

  5. drgfri says: Feb 7, 2011 12:40 AM

    Yes it is Ben. Maybe you should spend a little less time chasing and assaulting college women. You are a world class tool. Glad to see you suck it up in such a big game. I am very thankful tonight that neither you nor any of those Jets tools are champions. Hopefully the lot of you will end up where you belong, in jail.

  6. bigbaldpapahawk says: Feb 7, 2011 12:42 AM

    Big Ben lives by what-ifs. “What if she says no? Heck with it! Ima get some anyways!”.

  7. indywilson40 says: Feb 7, 2011 12:42 AM

    The-rapist is going to need a good therapist after this loss.

    You f***ed up!

  10. canadianvikingfaniii says: Feb 7, 2011 12:44 AM

    Greenbay’s DBs were suspect at times but also took the chances you need to take in an all or nothing game like this. Pittsburgh’s DBs on the other end seemed like they weren’t even there. What happened to head and shoulders?

  11. refsburgh says: Feb 7, 2011 12:44 AM

  12. 6timechamps15 says: Feb 7, 2011 12:44 AM

    “I was able to read Big Ben and got a nice jump on the ball,” Collins said.

    The truth, Ben was hit and the ball was woefully short. What do you mean you got a good read on Ben???

  13. goawayeverybody says: Feb 7, 2011 12:44 AM

    Dear Pig Pen, karma’s a biatch.

  14. 6timechamps15 says: Feb 7, 2011 12:47 AM

    I’m a huge Steelers fan and really like Ben, but tonight shows why he doesn’t get put into the Manning and Brady category. The guy CANNOT read a defense pre-snap whatsoever. All the big plays that he makes, and he makes alot, are made outside of the scheme of the play that is called. The Packers did a great job of keeping him inside the pocket and forcing him to make reads, he couldn’t do it. My top five qb’s now: 1) Brady, 2) Manning, 3) Brees, 4) Rodgers, 5) Ben

  15. carryingweight says: Feb 7, 2011 12:47 AM

    At least he is a man and accepts it.

  16. richm2256 says: Feb 7, 2011 12:47 AM

    Who are we to argue with the guy?

  17. jaggedmark says: Feb 7, 2011 12:48 AM

    In 3 Super Bowls, Ben has been awful in one, and bad in another one.

    Gotta stop the Brady comparisons.

    Brady was good in all of his, even the one he lost he drove team to late lead in the face of a great pass rush.

  18. bunkmcnulty says: Feb 7, 2011 12:50 AM

    No what ifs Benny Boy. You lost.

    What if Stevie Johnson catches a pass in his hands?

    What if Miami wasn’t robbed of their game?

    Do you still make the playoffs then?

    Stuff happens Ben. No what ifs. That is whinning in the most classic sense.

  19. ttommytom says: Feb 7, 2011 12:51 AM

    His football legacy dependent upon one last drive? Or one INT? Ben takes them down and he is a HOF’r? Please.

    Fking BS microwave society. So much more going on here than 1 INT or one failed drive. Tired of stupidity ruling the day…

  20. kyleortonsarm says: Feb 7, 2011 12:53 AM

    We know Ben. We all watched that game.

  21. trickbunny says: Feb 7, 2011 12:53 AM

    Somewhere in Georgia, a co-ed is laughing her ass off.

  22. scytherius says: Feb 7, 2011 12:53 AM

    Meh. The Packer’s D just outplayed you. Everyone gets outplayed sometimes.

  23. bbb82 says: Feb 7, 2011 12:54 AM

    I agree. In fact, I’d say almost all of it was his fault. But he doesn’t really play well in Super Bowls.

  24. jollyrob68 says: Feb 7, 2011 12:56 AM

    Ben tried to hard. We needed to run the ball. When we did we were successful. Then Rashard fumbled. Steelers need a real FB and have to get back to Steeler football to go with their passing game.

  25. rooneyruleblues says: Feb 7, 2011 12:56 AM

    God I’d hate to be a woman in Pittsburgh this week.

  26. anonymouslyanonymouscommentor says: Feb 7, 2011 12:56 AM

    Much respect for Big Ben after these comments. It takes a big man to say these words in the face of defeat and I bet a large percent of the players in the league wouldn’t have the balls/maturity to take responsibility like this. And you can’t really blame Ben for that first interception…the DL knew exactly where to put his arm to take everything out of the pass. And what is Nick Collins talking about? Maybe he knew Big Ben was throwing to his left, but he had no was of “reading” that Ben’s arm would get stopped mid-way, which is the only reason the interception happened.

  27. thehighhat says: Feb 7, 2011 12:57 AM

    Roethlisberger is NOT an elite QB!

  28. favrespeckerpictures says: Feb 7, 2011 12:58 AM

    Troy P…..totally invisible for 3 straight playoff games. I’m tired of hearing how good he is…..very very overrated!! Steeler defense overrated, if the Jets wern’t flat in the first half of AFC Championship Game, Steelers never even make the Bowl.

  29. eddddddd says: Feb 7, 2011 12:59 AM

    Yeah, he got a read on a badly underthrown ball. oy…..

  30. profootballwalk says: Feb 7, 2011 1:01 AM

    He hasn’t exactly lit it up in the Super Bowl – and you’re putting him in the Hall?

  31. lawboy2000 says: Feb 7, 2011 1:04 AM

    Not only was that beard as bad as Neil O’Donnell’s beard in Super Bowl XXX, but Ben’s performance was just as bad.

    He was handed his golden shot to go down in history with another 2min game winning drive and he lost his cool. He couldn’t take his eyes off Mike Wallace in the end and that killed him.

    The defense did all that could be asked of them but Ben just couldn’t seize his chance at redemption in this game.

    Hopefully this off season he will seize his chance at redemption as a man.

    There are worse teams to lose to than the Packers. There’s always next year – CBA permitting.

    Enjoy this one, Haters.

    Go Steelers.

  32. refsburgh says: Feb 7, 2011 1:08 AM

    Make all the excuses you want about Ben getting hit on the first int but the coverage was there. There’s a good chance that ball gets picked anyway.

  33. indywilson40 says: Feb 7, 2011 1:11 AM

    Fathers, watch your daughters. Big Ben is pissed and he might just try to rape somebody.

  34. blue58set says: Feb 7, 2011 1:12 AM

    And the morale of today’s story is rapist never win! Karma is a bitch Rapistberger! Go Pack Go! Vince is coming home!

  35. rstbuilders says: Feb 7, 2011 1:13 AM

    Yeah just got off the phone with Xtina’s agent, she was “so uncomfortable” with the way Ben was staring at her. That’s why she screwed that line up in the anthem

  36. stampnhawk says: Feb 7, 2011 1:14 AM

    No chance of an elite QB.
    He and the Steelers had 3 game changing mistake calls (owned up to by the ref) giving them Super Bowl XL, and two years ago, needed Holmes to make an amazing catch to get that one.

    If those very easily went the other way, the story after tonight very easily could’ve been if the Steelers are the next Buffalo Bills and Ben, the trashier Jim Kelly. At least Norwood missed his kick by a few yards, not the embarassment by Suisham that ended up closer to the pylon than the goal posts.

  37. steelergold says: Feb 7, 2011 1:16 AM

    The better team won tonight, plain and simple. Turn the ball over 3 times and you will lose.

    Congrats to the Packers they made fewer mistakes and that’s how you win.

    Also appreciate the fine folks that like like to play the name calling games. Grow up !

  38. lanman11 says: Feb 7, 2011 1:19 AM

    Nothing a little Jose Cuervo and some college pooty tang won’t cure. It’s the off season now, so that means…….IT’S ON!!!!

  39. scytherius says: Feb 7, 2011 1:27 AM

    Explain something to me. Why do people try to minimize an interception by saying, “well, he got hit!” Well, duh. That’s the Defense finding one of several ways to get a turnover. It’s not like the Steelers handed them the ball.

  40. thehighhat says: Feb 7, 2011 1:30 AM

    A-The only reason the Steelers “beat” the Seahawks is because the refs were in the bag for Pittsburg. They only won because of the worst officiating in SB history.

    B-The only reason they have 1 legit win in this millennium is because they beat the worst team in SB history the Arizona Cardinals. And they BARELY beat them.

    C-The Packers exposed what a true fraud the Steelers are. Without the refs in their pockets and a truly superior opponent, they are a joke.

    Team of the 60’s – Packers
    Team of the 70’s – Steelers
    Team of the 80’s – 49ers
    Team of the 90’s – Cowboys
    Team of the 00’s – Patriots

  41. mrone50 says: Feb 7, 2011 1:32 AM

    Lock all bathroom doors and make sure all hotels television sets are functioning properly. Big Ben is probably not done making mistakes tonight. Be safe out there.

  42. gasteelers211 says: Feb 7, 2011 1:34 AM

    First off, let me say congratulations to the Packers fans. Your team played a better game tonight and won the turnover battle tonight. They deserved the win.

    As far as you Haters go, grow the f*ck up!!! Big Ben isn’t the best qb in the league and he knows it. Hell, we all know that. So before you get on here talking all the sh!t you’re gonna talk, at least my team was playing in thus game, not watching like you and me.

    BTW… We still got SIX!!!!!!

    _____________________________

    Even though this is ancient history, I still can’t abide blatant Seahawk lies.

    Levy said this summer that he “kicked” two calls- not three- and he didn’t specify which. One was obviously the low block. The other? He didn’t say. Plus, brave of him to wait 5 years to say anything about the game, and then wait to say it until he’s at a Seahawks function. He seems like a coward. The suspect timing after a loooooooong wait makes me think that he was just telling Hawk fans what they wanted to hear to get out of there with as little grief as possible.

    Regardless, its about time you learn how to accept a loss. Steelers fans are.

    Ben’s right. He played the key role in this loss. He decisively removed his name from “elite” contention, and dropped himself down several pegs in the historical rankings. He choked tonight.

  44. deepbacksidedig says: Feb 7, 2011 1:42 AM

    Lot of hate in the air here.
    People, lets bring up our game, eh?

    I didn’t see any excuses from the steelers tonight, from Tomlin, Ben, Polamalu, any of em. Lost with class.

    One play turns that game the other way.
    Great game this football.

    Looking forward to next year.
    They of course will get it done, there will be football.
    We are talking billions here people.
    Billions.
    It gets done.
    Congrats to GB.
    Pitt? You will be back.

  49. bnwpnw says: Feb 7, 2011 2:04 AM

    Oh and btw, here’s who Pig Pen has beaten in the Super Bowl:

    1) A Seahawks team which suffered far more damage from now-admittedly horrible calls (in the worst-officiated Super Bowl in history) than from Pig Pen’s uncertain, errant throws.

    2) A Cardinals team widely derided as one of worst playoff teams ever until a hot streak and a Delhomme implosion paved the way to the big game. Beat them barely, btw.

    3) Not the Packers.

  50. bing253 says: Feb 7, 2011 2:06 AM

    Ben didn’t play well but I give more credit to the Packers defense because they created turnovers and that was the difference. So as important as the QB is defense still wins championships just look at what Brady as done without a great defense-since 2005 he’s 5-5 with no super bowl wins! So I thought the Packers defense played great and they should be getting more credit.

  51. sterlingrodgers says: Feb 7, 2011 3:25 AM

    I’m a celebrating Packers fan. But the Steelers are a great team and played a tough game. This is over the top. Come on man. “Yes it is Ben. Maybe you should spend a little less time chasing and assaulting college women. You are a world class tool. Glad to see you suck it up in such a big game. I am very thankful tonight that neither you nor any of those Jets tools are champions. Hopefully the lot of you will end up where you belong, in jail.”

    Packers fans are the last ones that should be taking shots at Ben. Mark Chmura ring a bell? How about Brett Favre? How many women did he sexually harass while wearing green and yellow?

  54. deebo92 says: Feb 7, 2011 3:44 AM

    Die-hard Stees fan… Ben is a double edge sword man…tonight he just wasnt there… Congrats to the Pack and ARod

  55. dino2997 says: Feb 7, 2011 4:07 AM

    If you only look at Super Bowls Big Ben is seriously over rated. He has a career TD-INT ratio of 3-5 and his first win came despite his performance and definitely due to the aid of the referees.

    Ok, I am sick and F’ing tired of hearing the same old tired BS…

    1) Levy said he missed one or two calls. ONE OR TWO. That is it.

    2) I have never heard once that the CArds were the “Worst SB team ever.” Let’s see Warner, Bolden , Fitzgerald, Rogers-Cromartie, etc. etc. They were a good team. The Bears had the worst SB team ever, with Grossman at QB.

    3) How about the non-holding call (Lawrence Timmons was TACKLED) on the big run that got a first down, leading to the second TD? Wanna whine and moan about refs in the past, fine I will bring that up. That lead to a TD. What did the Steelers lose by?? 6 points!

    I never one to whine about refs, as most Steelers fans, but if you want to question their SB wins based on referees then I will call it out.

  57. dirtdawg55 says: Feb 7, 2011 6:40 AM

    Collins didn’t make a great ” read”, the D lineman made a great play to hit Big Ben. Wallace was two steps behind the defenders, no way that was an Int if it was thrown to the right spot. GB still made a grt defensive play, but let’s credit the right one.

    Big Ben also overthrew Wallace on a potential TD play that wod have put them up in the third quarter.

    However, as much as Big Ben didn’t play great, GB did. They seized every opportunity, made the splash plays and drove the ball when it counted. If the haters out there think I feel bad about this one, well, I don’t. The Steelers had a great season. The Packers had a better one, but it helps to prove why Favre was let go and Rodgers kept. And I am loving every minute of that because if there is an overrated QB out there it was Favre.

    Congrats Green Bay. A well deserved SB win. 16 guys on IR. Picked your way through the playoffs on the road, held back a determined Pittsburgh team. Well done.

  58. pravin68 says: Feb 7, 2011 6:52 AM

    Ben’s worst throws werent actually his interceptions. I thought Kemo was putrid on the first INT where he got blocked into Ben. The second INT happened because the one trick pony Wallace didnt fight for the ball and GB made an excellent play on that. No, his worst throws – missing Heath on the 3rd and 2, missing Wallace on an easy TD in the 3rd Q , missing Wallace on 4th and 5. And not looking for Ward more in the second half.

    The good sign is Ben will realize he needs to practice his throws more where mechanically it becomes second nature to him. Ben has shown better practicce habits this year. He wont become a precision passer overniht. But hopefullyif he keeps this up, he can undo some of the damage his bad habits in the last few years have done to his consistency. In a dome setting, a QB cant afford to have a bad half because the other QB can put up points.

  59. Akula says: Feb 7, 2011 6:56 AM

    All things being equal you should always cheer for the team that doesn’t have an ” alleged ” rapist as their quarterback…….I’m just say’n

    Well luck finally ran out on the jackholes from the Burgh!!! Lucky in Miami…Lucky in Buffalo…Lucky in Baltimore…Lucky to make the playoffs…Lucky the Ravens handed them a playoff game…and then THANK YOU LORD FOR GREEN BAY…they completed what the Ravens couldn’t by beating these pains in the rear!!!

    Troy P – what a huge game you had!
    James Harrison – man, were you a force to reckon with!
    Keisel – so much for trying to capitalize off of growing a beard, loser!
    Mendenhall – yeah, the total package…fumbles included!!!
    Hiney Ward – meaningless game. No impact at all.
    Tomlin – still classy…I do like this guy!
    …and Big Ben – you piece of dirt…how many drunk college girls will you assault to get the stink of this loss off you? O yeah, you’re “engaged”…right! See ya later piano man. ha!

    …I think my favorite, though, was watching Casey Hampton trying to drag his fat behind after James Starks, and then throwing his helmet.

    So many dirty players on the Steelers…so good to see them get their comeuppance!

    LOVE IT!!!

    I am a Steelers Lady! We made it to the Super Bowl with our team-that for whatever reason-didn’t show up like they have all season. I am proud of every member of the Steelers…I have boys that are 14 and 11 years old, dedicated Steeler fans, and heart broken. I realize for whatever reason; people hate the Steelers. Commenting on Ben as a rapist is childish. You seriously can’t come up with anything better than that? The man was not found guilty of anything other than having gorgeous women flock around him; and maybe he needed to be more wise of the company he kept. I guess you that hate him so much are jealous because you couldn’t get a decent looking woman unless she needed a green card. In my mind; you people that do comment about him are most likely the kid in high school that couldn’t get a date if you paid someone. Instead of blasting our team; why not show love for whoever you like? I’m so proud to be a part of Steeler Nation…my marriage made me a fan, and the Steelers keep me a fan. We should’ve won. It just wasn’t meant for us for whatever reason. Great job to the Packers and I am happy for their fans today; however, I am selfish and sad for us as well. We love our guys no matter. Most of you that say horrible things about our team have no idea what it means to love and be dedicated to something in good and bad times. My guess is most of you “haters” are divorced, close to it, or never even been close to being married! Hate us or Love us we are STEELER NATION!!!! I feel sorry for those of you that will never know how that feels.

  64. 706vet says: Feb 7, 2011 7:48 AM

    Ben was just being Ben last night. He misses guys for touchdowns, slips on throws, takes sacks. The Pack actually intercepted some throws. That’s Big Ben.

    The reason people comment about some past games is out of pure realism. The Seattle game was breathtaking in it’s poor officiating, the Harrison play was divine intervention.

    I think other fans also get frustrated with the state of Ohio producing NFL slop for 2 DECADES. Ugh. The Stillers are a good franchise but also the most fortunate in NFL history. Easily.

  66. 8man says: Feb 7, 2011 8:09 AM

    The Steelers got there because they were able to create and capitalize on turnovers at key times.

    Last night, Green Bay did to them what they did to everyone else. Maybe one less turnover and Pittsburgh wins that game.

    And with the injuries the Packers suffered, it was there for the taking. But now Roethlisberger joins Brady and Manning in missed shots at immortality.

  67. calloustongue says: Feb 7, 2011 8:15 AM

    The better QB won the game. Rothlisberger is a good QB, he made some nice plays with his feet, but Rodgers simply played a better, mistake free football game.

    What a game.

  68. stealthhawk says: Feb 7, 2011 8:31 AM

    wycoff,

    You’re a joke. You go from saying that SB XL wasn’t poorly officiated because you took Bill Leavy’s word for it when only admitting to blowing a couple of calls to calling him a “coward” because of how he went about doing it in the same paragraph. If you think that way about him, why are you using him as your only piece of “evidence” as to how the game wasn’t incredibly biased?

    Besides, had Leavy and his crew admitted to blowing all the calls that they did, they wouldn’t be working in the NFL any longer. Same goes with d-bags like Mike Perreira (head of officiating at the time of the game) who still goes on and on trying to defend that game so his career doesn’t look like the total sham that it was.

    Blatant Seahawks lies? Sounds more like you and your Steeler bretheren just can’t get over the fact that everybody that watched that game sided with the Seahawks in thinking that it was a horribly officiated game with numerous poor calls going against one team.

    National sportswriters, broadcasters, fans from other teams: they all agreed that SB XL was the worst officiated game they’ve ever seen and it happened on the game’s biggest stage. The only people still defending their other side’s stance are the Steelers and the crooked refs. Gee, I wonder who’s right…49 states or the state of Pennsylvania?

  69. coys10 says: Feb 7, 2011 8:32 AM

    It is crazy that a guy who has been in the league 7 years and was selected to 1 pro bowl is even being mentioned for the HOF. He had the worst qb rating of any winning qb, played a mediocre game against a terrible cardinals d (that last drive people remember but it was really a short crossing route that SH busted open), and a terrible super bowl this time. So, if he makes it in on the fact that he has rings, people should be honest about how ineffective he has been in the big game.

  70. ppdoc13 says: Feb 7, 2011 8:38 AM

    This game showed you why Ben is not yet a HOF’r. His calling card is making plays after the play breaks down. Play D, stay in your lanes and force him to be a QB and he has trouble. He isn’t that smart. He doesn’t read defenses that well. What he is, is a physically talented TE playing QB. He is brutal to bring down, and is too damned dumb to know when he is beat. BTW – that is not a slight, it is a compliment.

    Aaron Rodgers was the much better QB on the field last night. His passes come out like lasers and he is deadly accurate. If his guys don’t drop 3 – 4 easy catches the game is a blow out and he may have a perfect passer rating instead of the 116 or so he posted.

    Either way it was a fun SB to watch. Especially if you hate the Steerlers as any good Ravens fan does. We may be a couple of holes ahead of you on the golf course, but the course is the same. I hope to see you all next year if football season returns.

    Ben didn’t play well but I give more credit to the Packers defense because they created turnovers and that was the difference. So as important as the QB is defense still wins championships just look at what Brady as done without a great defense-since 2005 he’s 5-5 with no super bowl wins! So I thought the Packers defense played great and they should be getting more credit.

    Ummm, aren’t the Steelers known for an amazing defense too?????

    And yet, Roethlisberger still lost.

    How can you criticize Tom Brady for winning three Super Bowls behind a great defense, and then not admit that the Steeler’s defense was the only reason Ben won two rings? He sure as hell didn’t earn either on his own.

    2010 afc championship; QB rating of 35, 2 int’s, 0 td’s

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Please stop, you are embarrassing Stealer fans everywhere. First, that was Sam Shields in coverage, he runs even faster that Wallace so there is no telling what might have happened if Ben’s arm wasn’t hit. Shields would have had just as much of a chance on the ball as Wallace, it wasn’t like he had 5 yards of separation.

    Karma has a way of showing up in the right spots at the right time. Ok, Ben is not a choir boy, he likes his sex rough and without permission but hey, he is a pro QB so he considers it his right to indulge no matter what the girl thinks. Karma didn’t’ think much of Vick killing dogs or Ben’s foreplay methods so no Superbowl for either, despite any success they had during the regular season.

Ur ravens are pathetic, trashtalkin, cheapshottin scumbuckets that will never win another 1. 126 total yards for ur busted ravens in the divisional. I am sorry that is not luck that is just pathetic. I will tell u what is luck. The ravens somehow putting up 24 points in that game with that putridness. So congrats for jumping on the cabouse of that packers bandwagon since ur own team cant take care of their “personal” business.

    To those of you who hate Roethlisberger (and I know you are legion) and derive so much joy in spewing your hate from the safety of cyberspace:

    He messed up – he fessed up. Both on and off the field. He is guilty of acting like a pig – how many of you can say you have never done that or – given the opportunity – would not have done it?

    Don’t forget that he was NOT prosecuted in either case because legitimate authorities didn’t find sufficient justification to file charges.

    The Packers were the better team. When it most counted they were the better team – that’s why they play the game.

  85. 1historian says: Feb 7, 2011 10:06 AM

    Last night in many homes throughout the length and breadth of this great land the old lady got tired of hearing the hubbie scream and yell and throw things as he got more and more toasted and just went to bed early (before the game ended) and when hubbie crawled into bed reeking of beer and other things with some nookie on the mind and kind of tried to talk her into it she replied:

    “not tonight – I’ve got a head ache.”

    Wow. Record number of haters in here. Packers fans have something to crow about, but the rest of you were further away from a Super Bowl victory than the horribly rancid losers called the Steelers. What exactly does that make you?

    The Ravens? Please. You should change your team name to the Dust Particles because you keep getting swept. A good Super Bowl for you is one in which Ray Lewis doesn’t kill two people.

  87. bunkmcnulty says: Feb 7, 2011 10:11 AM

    @donnieiris

    You’re right. Pretty putrid that the Ravens get only 126 yards and should have beat the Stillers. But you all won fair and square. We could not overcome our misfortune.

    Trash talking and cheap shots? The team that has Wines Hard has no room to throw those shots. Not too mention 92 and his ton of head shots this year. You’re facts are skewed.

    You guys had a great season, but in the end you lost. If there are games, we’ll see you next year.

  91. rabidbillsfan says: Feb 7, 2011 10:24 AM

    Also, I think the Packers just figured Ben out for the rest of the NFL. The Clay Matthews Spy was genious. Outside of one long run Ben was in check all night, no improvising. Hats off to Dom Capers for not only designing the gameplan, but making sure the players executed it. Here is an honest opinion on why I think Ben is not a HOF QB. He still has the training wheels on. He does’t read defenses well, the O-Line picks up his blocking assignments, and outside of a “Kill” he doesn’t effectivley audiable. Yes, he is no Payton Mannng, but (bias here) even Ryan Fitzpatick effectivley audiables, shifts his protection, and reads a D pretty darn well.(Don’t belive me? Watch some highlights of this season) All those are what scouts call “The Intangibles.” To be honest, I don’t even think Ben is a true leader. When they were down last night I did not see Ben trying to pull guys out of their “funk”, trying to pump guys up. Now the camera doesn’t show everything, but even watching games during the season, I never saw it. This is not a “Ben sucks because he choked and the Refs helped him so he’s not a HOF’r” rant, I belive this is an honest analysis of why he doesn’t get mentioned in with Manning, Brady, Brees, Favre. (Yes Favre, If his defense in 2009 played like the Steelers did last night, I think he would have had a chance to play in that big game Interception or not. Also, I never mentioned stats so I would say Favre does a good job of making adjustments, and prior this year, being a leader.)

    I think we can safely table the HOF talk for Ben until his careerr is over. He is making it too much of a habit to try to win the game at the end. That is not a recipe for greatness over the long haul. It should be saved for special occasions. having said that, didn’t Peyton struggle in the last SB too. He had a bad INT and he didnt even put up many points. Peyton’s offenses havent been that prolific in the playoffs either. It was only when Dungy improved their defenses that he got to his first SB

    Says the Steeler-obsessed anti-fan. You sound like one of the pathetic Browns fans.

    Blame the freaking Seahawk fans for our bad mood. Their team couldn’t make a play without breaking the rules, and somehow that’s our fault. They crapped all over our first Super Bowl win in a long, long time, and you’re surprised that we’ve got a chip on our shoulder? Their team sucked out loud on that day. They couldn’t score without severe holding or pushing off. They were ridiculous. The Steelers weren’t a work of art either, but they made a few plays at least. Don’t ruin the moment for the other team just because your team decided not to show up.

    You don’t see me whining about the officiating today. The blame for the loss rests with the losing team, where it always does. The Pack won because they were better than the Steelers on that day. They deserve to enjoy the win. All you people are doing is tarnishing the experience for them.

  96. newreality1 says: Feb 7, 2011 11:54 AM

    Hey Ben, thats the speech you should have given over a year ago. You let them down off the field and now you can add to the list on the field. Maybe you should lie low untill training camp starts again. Redemtion is hard earned. And the way it looks, youve got a hard road ahead.

I will say the worst of the worst haven’t shown themselves. So the decent ones are getting a little pissed.

    Sorry decent Steeler fans. You need to speak up against the rogue ignorant fans from your own base once in a while (Deb, I know you have and I appreciate that).

  102. swinbun says: Feb 7, 2011 3:06 PM

    Congratulations to the Packers. Tough one to swallow, but Rodgers made unbelievable passes that were put the only places they could be. Ryan Clark barely missed stopping one td pass, and I think it was Ike Taylor barely missed one of the late 3rd down passes…..game of inches. But Rodgers made incredible passes on those plays.

    To those of you banging on Big Ben. Go ahead, he is still one hell of a player and will be back and win another SB. The Steelers have an awsome nucleus of wide outs, a solid RB in Mendenhall, and the best Line Backing corps in the NFL…….but a few observations…

    Farrior looked old last night ( he is ), we need to find his replacement. He is a warrior, an incredible leader, but at 36 he worries me.

    It will be great to get Aaron Smith back, and Ziggy Hood made strides, but we need another playmaker on the DL. Hampton is getting old as well, so a run stuffer will be a priority in the next year or two. Not sure if he could play DE in a 3-4, but Ryan Kerrigan out of Purdue is a total stud .

    OL….must be addressed in the draft or Free agency.

    Secondary. Set at saftey. Ike Taylor ok, Mcfadden ok, but William Gay has got to go.

    And was I the only one who would have liked to have Jeff Reed back last night?

    Lastly, looking forward to 2011. This team will be back, and I think we will see Ben at his best next year. I think he will work extremely hard this offseason and come back with a vengence.

    ROFL … we are finally on the same page! Steelers have gotten me through some of the lowest points in my life, including three cancer battles. People who aren’t football fans will never get it, but it’s amazing how your team can lift you up no matter what else is going on in your life. Gift from God! Best thing is that the good feeling never goes away! Soak up every minute of it!!!! :)

    And though the evidence shows Ben didn’t assault anyone, he did let down the team and the fans with his reckless behavior. I’m thankful he appears to be turning his life around, but you make a good point that redemption shouldn’t necessarily come so quickly.

    Congrats again on the win!

  104. holeinone09 says: Feb 7, 2011 3:33 PM

    Ben definitely was off the mark yesterday on a number of his passes. But saying this one game defines his career is silly, either way. If so, then Manning can’t currently be considered an elite QB since he has generally sucked in his post-season work. Ben has played well during his career, overall, given the total body of work. Don’t know why he fell short yesterday, but he owned up to it after the game.

    He began the season in the hole because of his own behavior. Hopefully, this will be a quiet offseason, and next season will be more “normal” for the Steelers.

    Thanks to the entire organization for giving Steeler Nation a fun-filled and exciting year of football through the Super Bowl. Only 2 teams get to say that. While I wish we won yesterday, the Packers played a better game and took advantage of the Steeler’s mistakes to win which they deserved. Congrats to them, enjoy.

    So, here is one Steeler fan already looking forward to next season, with a more determined and hopefully trouble-free Ben, a more experienced Mendenahll, the young WR’s, a healthy OL, the hard hitting defense and hopefully some DB’s from the draft.

    GO STEELERS!!

    Holeinone09, Manning’s career playoff passer rating is better than Raplisbergers. Manning’s only problem is that he doesn’t have a top 5 defense year after year. Big Ben in Big Games:
    2004 afc championship: 3 interceptions
    2005 super Bowl: 22 QB rating
    2007 divisional round loss: 3 interceptions
    2008 afc championship: 16 completions in 33 attempts
    2010 afc championship: 35 Qb rating, 2 interceptions, o td’s
    2010 super bowl: 2 game losing interceptions.

    In 4 afc championships and 3 super bowls, the 7 biggest games of his life: 8 touchdowns, 10 interceptions.

    The myth that big ben is clutch has been exposed.

  107. igottz5onit says: Feb 7, 2011 5:21 PM

    @indywilson40
    The facts can support anything you want if you only include the ones that make your case. Why didn’t you include the 2005 AFC championship, when he threw 2 td’s, ran for another, and went pick-free with a 125 passer rating? In fact you don’t include any of the games he actually did well in nor any of his rushing TD’s. That would be like judging manning solely on his rushing stats and his losses.

    Igottz, Did you read my post? I did include the 2005 afc championship. It was included in the 7 biggest games of his life, in which he has thrown 10 int’s and 8 td’s. There is a myth out there that Big Ben is super-human in the biggest games. Do the above stats sound like a clutch QB in big games? No. Raplisberger is a good qb on a great team, and any mention of him as an all-time great QB is absurd. BTW, Manning has as many playoff rushing td’s as Raplisberger, 3.

  112. dachozen1 says: Feb 7, 2011 10:24 PM

    All you a-holes crowing about “he isn’t HOF material cuz of bad SB’s”, I got one for ya. If winning the SB is a requirement for enshrinement, how did Dan Marino make it in? His SB, his ONLY SB consisted of 16 pts for Miami, 2 ints, and 4 sacks. So all you loser Raven fans that piss yourself at the sight of the Burgh, all you Clowns and Ben-GALS fans, you go back to sniffing panties. I’d take Ben any day over your squid-armed QB’s. At least with BB i know my teams stands a better than average chance of making it to a SB.

  114. quittsburghsquealers says: Feb 8, 2011 7:46 AM

    @ fancyleague:

    You don’t need to take my word for this. Just ask anyone who was on this forum (and who’s not a Steeler homer) about what poor winners (most of) the Steelers fans were on this forum after their SB win VS the Cardinals. Big time gloating. No class (by some) whatsoever.

    Saying they were “obnoxious” is both an understatement and also me being polite about it. If this place has an archives, go check it out yourself if you feel the need for “proof” other than my word. Assuming that “oh, Steeler fans wouldn’t do that kind of stuff” is completely dumb. Just because a team has had success doesn’t mean their fans automatically have class. I’ve known many Steeler fans for over 35 years and (as a group & in general) they may be only second to Red Sox fans in terms of being the most obnoxious sports fans around. It seems neither fan base is happy with just their team winning, they have to be asswipes towards everyone else who ain’t a fan of their team…

I hate the steelers (pats fan) but i respect their fans because they’re loyal and knowledgable of their team like Sox fans are. Both teams can talk whatever crap they want because they win and demand success. Ill gladly run my mouth as a Sox fan because we got Adrian and Crawford now and we’re gonna rape the AL east all day.

Those are some of the ugliest, fattest slobs in the country who don’t know a damn thing about baseball and treat it like a business rather than a sport. I hate the Steelers (pats fan) but i respect their fans because they’re loyal and knowledgeable of their team like Sox fans are. Both teams can talk whatever crap they want because they win and demand success. Ill gladly run my mouth as a Sox fan because we got Adrian and Crawford now and we’re gonna rape the AL east all day.

    Lets see if the packers continue this success like the steelers have throughout the last several years. Oh and dont worry PFT, the pats will be back too trust me

    ——————————————————-

    So we are to take the word of a “Pats fan” when it comes to his view on the Yankees and Red Sox?

    Hating on the Yankees and all things New York is a Boston thing. Goes back to “the Curse”. Why else would the Boston fans chant “Yankees suck” even at Celtic games? Why are the BoSox fans chanting it even when their team is in third place in September and trailing the Yanks by 12 games?

    So pardon me if I laugh at a New England (aka Boston) Patriots fan defending the Boston Red Sox in this situation. Everyone knows most Pats and BoSox fans have each others’ backs, especially when it comes to New York teams, especially the Yankees.

    Hell, that’s no surprise since a lot of people who like the BoSox also like the Pats and vice versa.

    I also love how for years before 2005 I’d hear BoSox fans whine that Yanks fans were so obnoxious. Then the BoSox finally won something at last and guess which fan base turned into the very thing they whined about for so many years? Yep, you guess it… the Red Sox fans.

    And the Boston jealousy of NY ain’t ever gonna stop because the Yanks still have 20 more titles than the Red Sox…

    Wow. I missed a great game (had to work; spent 12 hours keeping a kid alive. Got a win, too, for which I am grateful), but I feel I must comment in any case. Usually I don’t weigh in on stuff I don’t know anything about but I did see the highlights & the Roethlisberger post game interview so I think I have some feel for the situation. I think what happened had as much to do with karma as it did with the Packer’s great play and the Steelers mediocre play. I don’t know if that young woman is happy or not about the Steeler’s loss. In my experience rape victims feel little but fear, shame and anger when they think of the event or the rapist. They lose a large amount their ability to trust or have normal relationships. So, Mr. Roethlisberger, explain what you did to her. Own up to the rape. Take the blame for that one Ben, THEN I’ll tip my hat to you. Then you might be able to have some peace and play like you can play, instead of playing like the shaky, guilt-ridden douche that you are now. I say this as the proud father of a young lady about to enter university. I’d like her to grow up without running into some over-privileged ass who thinks the world owes him something because he can chuck a ball.

    @quitsburghsquealers

    Umm hating the yankees simply is due to the fact that their our rivals retard. And red sox fans are not obnoxious whatsoever.. im sure you are making this assumption off the five sox fans you know.. intelligent. You, like the rest of everyone outside of Boston, hates on our teams because we have success and pride and have a large market.. And just because im a pats doesn’t make me a sox fan moron. The guy that sits front row at every sox game behind the catcher is a lifelong giants fan. his name is dennis drinkwater… You’re assuming things.. And yes im so jealous of all the rings the yankees won in the 40’s and 50’s before i was born lmfao. Get real.

    And yes we do chant yankees suck no matter what because thats how we feel. and trust me its not just sox fan chanting that.. most people feel that way. they are douches. Look at a guy like A-Rod. What a tool.. makes 27 million dollars and has a sub-par BA. pathetic.. Lets put it this way.. we have one pro team for each sport and have about the same amount of championships as NY. and they have the yankees! lmfao ask the jets and knicks what they’ve won recently.

    Somewhere in Georgia, a co-ed is laughing her ass off.

    Funny how you provide an analysis of the game without having seen it, and also spew a bunch of bs about the rape allegations without any clue what transpired.

    In your experience do rape victims also show no sign of having been raped (per hospital rape kit), have no evidence of the accused’s DNA on their person or clothing (despite claiming unprotected sex) and then ask the police to drop the case (after telling lies and changing their story repeatedly)?

    I hope your daughter doesn’t turn into a drunken skank who cries rape when she does something she’s not proud of.

    Igottz, Did you read my post? I did include the 2005 afc championship. It was included in the 7 biggest games of his life, in which he has thrown 10 int’s and 8 td’s. There is a myth out there that Big Ben is super-human in the biggest games. Do the above stats sound like a clutch QB in big games? No. Raplisberger is a good qb on a great team, and any mention of him as an all-time great QB is absurd. BTW, Manning has as many playoff rushing td’s as Raplisberger, 3.

    ==========================

    If you’re a Manning fan, you can criticize Ben’s play on the field (although Manning didn’t fare much better with that choke job in SB 44)– but you should cool it with the Raplisberger “jokes” because people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Manning admitted to assaulting his trainer when she was just trying to do HER JOB.

    Yes, Ben you’ve been part of the problem since the beginning of the season. So the season ends as it began. Hopefully, the Steelers can get passed another birthday of yours without any surprises. While everyone else is thinking about the CBA being over in March, I’ll be waiting for your birthday to pass in March.

    I tend to be optimistic so I’m hoping you get married this year. Your fiance looks like a mature woman rather than a college girl. Things are looking better already. Live long and prosper.

    GO STEELERS!

    nickster2k; I explained how I came by my opinion. As I said; its an opinion based on the news stories; a common way to arrive at an opinion. The rape victim ‘bs’ is a matter of scientific inquiry. See this link if you have the guts;

    http://www.domesticviolenceservices.com/rape.html

    Young people are very easily intimidated. That’s why it’s so easy to abuse them (this too is a matter of scientific inquiry and, if you have the nards, google that one). Of course she backed down. Most of the time they do (look it up, don’t wait for me to school you some more). It’s called shame and fear and victim blaming. The young lady said no but he did it anyways. And, since you clearly need a bit of an education, there’s a very simple way to not leave your semen all over the blue dress; it’s called a condom. What really bugs me about you and other’s who support this douche is how can you delude yourself into defending him? I guess she wasn’t your kid or sister or mother, right? Most of us don’t even know her name but we’re sorry for her as is anyone with a gram (it’s a metric measurement; look it up) of empathy. No one puts themselves out there with the kind of media scrutiny it brings like she did unless something horrible happened to her. One day, I hope she finds it within herself to get over this. It’s likely damn sure her rapist wont do anything decent about it.
