Ben Roethlisberger says Vontaze Burfict threatened JuJu Smith-Schuster

AP

The Steelers were angry on Sunday about a hit that Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict put on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. According to Ben Roethlisberger, Burfict also threatened another hit.

On the very next play after the hit on Brown that the Steelers decried as dirty, Roethlisberger says Burfict said he was going to do the same thing to Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

“He hits A.B., then, literally, as I am under center for the next play, he points at JuJu and says, ‘You’re next,’ ” Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “How do you allow that stuff?”

Although no audio of Burfict’s words has emerged, video of the moment in question supports Roethlisberger’s account: Burfict twice gestured in Smith-Schuster’s direction as the Steelers were lining up for the next play.

Smith-Schuster and Burfict have a history together, as Smith-Schuster was suspended for a game last year for an illegal hit on Burfict.

For his part, Roethlisberger said he tried to exchange pleasantries with Burfict on the field, but Burfict wasn’t having it.

“After I did the quarterback sneak that they called back, he got in my face. I said, ‘Hey, listen, it’s good to have you back out here [after Burfict’s four-game suspension to start the season].’ He got all feisty and wanted to fight,” Roethlisberger said. “I told him that my wife was praying for him. He didn’t like that, either. He doesn’t like anything.”

He certainly doesn’t like the Steelers. And the Steelers certainly don’t like him.

  1. I believe it Burfict continues to prove that he’s a disgusting player that does not deserve the privilege to play the game.

  2. The king of flops is now making up penalties after the game is over. Unbelievable. Did Floppersberger report it during the game? Of course not. This guy is addicted to drama. Grow up, Little Ben.

  3. Did he talk about his mommy too?! C’mon. Man up and shut up. It’s real between the lines.

  4. Yeah, and mike Mitchell said the same thing to A.J. after concussing Eifert in a past game. What about Vince Williams threatening Vontaze’s life on Twitter? Stop whining big crybaby.

  5. But it’s ok for Shazier and Williams to go helmet to helmet on Bengal RBs. The Steelers have always been a dirty team and they cry like school children when they get someone to stand up to them and give it right back to them.

  6. LMAO!!! That pales in comparison to what I said, and heard, when I played. References to their parentage, their racial makeup, where their butt would be located after I hit them, etc. Anything to get “inside” their heads and distract them.

    So not only is Ben a drama queen but Ben is also a “tattle-tail”

    Shocker a pats fan that doesn’t like when a player points out improper or illegal behavior on the field. Shouldn’t you be outside practicing your beer throwing skills?

  8. Big Ben is a Big Wuss. I remember when he called Mike Pouncey for reassurance when Myles Garrett was quoted saying “I’m gonna chop that tree down”. Roethwussberger never would of made it had he played in the 70’s.

  9. LOL, common man… If you played any contact sport at all in your life you would know part of the game was getting in your opponent head. Making them think about anything but what they are suppose to be doing. Yeah, that includes getting them a little scared. These are grown men playing a violent sport, lets not act like that isn’t part of the game.

    I am sure Burfict isn’t the only one talking smack…

  10. I kind of like Roethlisberger messing with Burfict, and I think Burfict was probably doing the same thing with Smith-Schuster. You get him thinking he might have a cheap shot coming his way and maybe it takes him off his game a bit. The penalty should come if he follows through on the threat. In fact, he should be kicked out of the league if he follows through on the threat. The threat alone should not be penalized. I don’t like taunting penalties, either.

    Shocker, a Steelers fan that doesn’t like when opposing players are mean to players on his team, while fully supporting Hines Ward and James Harrison for many many years.

  12. Burfict should have been granted his permanent vacation by now, but damn if this doesn’t look weak on Ben’s part, as the leader of a franchise heralded for its toughness and grit.

  13. First, how about focusing on the illegal pick that helped the squealers win the game. Second, Screw the NFL BiG 12 Experiment and lets get back to AFC NORTH football. 3rd, Ben’s always been a whiner much like his coach.

  14. I’m all for playing on the edge and hitting hard, but this guy goes on the field with the intention of injuring people. Not defending the pot smokers, but if you are going to suspend a guy for smoking weed, how do you allow a guy like Burfict back on the field?

  15. Intimidation is part of the game. If Juju keeps his head on a swivel and starts looking for the LB he isn’t going to be as effective running routes or catching the ball.

    Why isn’t there a disclaimer about Ben like there was on the T. Hill story? Does Ben want his past coming up again while his wife prays for others? Does he want his past coming back to haunt him because a player said “you’re next?” I wonder what that woman in the bathroom thought. She didn’t get the “you’re next” warning.

  16. Holy crap he said “you’re next” and its a national emergency?

    Are these guys so thin skinned and soft these days they can’t take some trash talking?

    What’s next, demanding penalties for “Looking at the quarterback in a mean and threatening way, 5 yards, automatic first down!”?

  17. The whole “wife is praying for you comment” seems to be Ben made a sarcastic comment, and after the fact is trying to spin it as him trying to take the high road or something like that. Don’t know about that. The baloney in this rivalry has gone both ways. Burfict saying he’s going to hit someone hard doesn’t really seem to

  18. “I’m gonna tell” said the Diva. Why can’t the Steelers ever just take a win and say “good game”?

  19. “my wife is praying for you.” Oh please – screw you guy. That would only make me more mad as well. It’s passive aggressive, smarmy, phony, condescending. Roethlisberger is such a phony. Atleast Burfict is real and just wants to slap you in the face. And you knoww hat, some people DESERVE to get slapped in the face.

  20. Do Patriot fans EVER stop crying? Love to see their comments if Burfict went after one of their players.

  21. this is the thing.. Burfict on the field the guy is a monster, he pushes to the line and over it from time to time.. off the field.. I never hear about the guy doing anything.. Big Ben on the field, great player.. off the field?? the guy has been a scum bag for years. The kind that most fathers would put a beating on if he treated their daughters the way this guy has treated women.. “my wife is praying for you???” how about you shut your mouth and she keeps her prayers for you.

  22. Wasn’t there a certain Steelers WR who was awarded the dirtiest player in the NFL award by SI back in 09. Broke the jaw of a Bengals player? Wasn’t he known for blocking back and blind siding players? What a cry baby, one of your own was just like Burfict. Funny how people forget certain things…right Hines.

  23. After the circus of headhunters the Steelers have put out in years past seeing this whining is just comical.

  24. What’s next, demanding penalties for “Looking at the quarterback in a mean and threatening way, 5 yards, automatic first down!”?

    19

    That’s what gets Brady a roughing the passer. Homer the Pats play the refs like a violin and denying makes you look even more of a cry baby homer.

  25. Ben wants to like Aaron and make whine. But Ben Hur couldn’t walk on water, he only drove a chariot.

  26. For as much as the NFL has gone into their “Cover Your Butt” mode all it will take is Burfict paralyzing someone for them to lose BILLIONS. He has a long history of trying to cause injuries and the NFL needs to show they mean business about safety.

    Burfict should have been removed from the league awhile ago. It’s only a matter of time now.
    ——————-

    Seems like he exemplifies the kind of play that all the bozos are looking forward to when the XFL starts up.

  28. Man I miss the days of real man football. Say what you want about Burfict, he’s just in the wrong era. Just looking at the comments in this article shows you how soft the sport is becoming, and why the league will continue to change the rules every year until you can no longer taunt or tackle smh. God I miss the ’85 Bears, the 2000 Ravens, the 2005 Steelers, etc.

  29. remember in 2012 when Richard Seymour touched Ben and he flopped like a fish.

  30. Re: Palmer —-Was that “above average” lineman supposed to just let go? A legitimate tackle in which his tight hold and Palmer’s struggling did the damage.

  31. Look at the video. His arm barely brushed against Clown’s helmet. And why is anyone listening to someone who admits to flopping to draw a roughing the passer penalty? Floppersberger is just trying to draw attention away from the fact that the Steelers stole Sunday’s game with a OPI that the officials simply ignored.

  32. Isn’t it typical that an argument between Steeler and Bengal fans gets taken over by loud mouthed Pats fans. Nobody cares what you think so go back to your self congratulating site so you can pat each other’s back for being good obedient Pats trolls.

  33. Burfict just can’t help himself. He’s going to have a rude awakening when his football career is over.

  34. How long has Roethlisberger been playing football? I thought players talked trash like that all the time.

  35. Why isn’t there a disclaimer about Ben like there was on the T. Hill story? Does Ben want his past coming up again while his wife prays for others? Does he want his past coming back to haunt him because a player said “you’re next?” I wonder what that woman in the bathroom thought. She didn’t get the “you’re next” warning.

    Never let the facts get in the way of a good lie. Stick to the conflict on the field Francis so you wont look as obtuse as you are. Bens past has nothing to do with on field issues….really?

  36. I always have to laugh at nhpats and tylaw. Two cowards who run and hide whenever the Patriots lose. They both disappeared for a week after Detroit mopped the field with the Patriots. law still cries about Philly crushing them in the Super Bowl and claims Goodell always cheats them. Hilarious.

  37. Heated rivalries and physical play makes the NFL WAY better. I’m tired of whining and chumminess with players.

  38. Coming from the team that invented the cheap shot. This holds no water. Stop crying Ben and work on your end of year “I’m retiring” speech. AGAIN….

  39. Look at the video. His arm barely brushed against Clown’s helmet. And why is anyone listening to someone who admits to flopping to draw a roughing the passer penalty?

    I realize this commenter is a troll trying to be funny and antagonize for attention which is fine, but this topic is not one to be joking about. Permanent injury is possible from the actions inflicted by Burfict. I am sure if its was only his head instead of AB his comments would be different. People like that shouldnt be allowed to post on here.

    Like that’s never happened on a football field before? Get over it, snowflakes.

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

    Why do you gotta bring Trump into this topic? I realize he’s uber sensitive to any criticism and reacts by calling people names while hiding behind his unsecure Twitter phone though.

  41. Look at the people trying to justify what Burfict did and what he planned to do to some of his fellow NFLPA brethren! LOL, you people can’t make a distinction between playing good hard football and intentionally trying to target and injure other players. If this was the first time Burfict did this, I could understand. But is this like his 20th time? It’s obvious this moron doesn’t care if he intentionally injures someone, nor if he announces it to the world beforehand. That is NOT FOOTBALL. i love good hard football, but not trying to take someone out. This dirtbag needs to sit for at least a year so he can possibly learn how to play the game properly. But that won’t happen. Hopefully at least the NFL will fine him heavily, but at this point it won’t help him change his dangerous ways.

    So all the people that support Burfict, do the Bengals play your team later this season? Don’t cry when he targets your players illegally.

  42. Here’s what I know as a Bengals fan. The Bengals sure do have a hard time finishing against the Steelers, for whatever reason. It’s clearly become a mental thing at this point, too. Burfict can be a dirty player, there are plenty of examples. Burfict can also be overscrutinized, and is, but it’s his own fault. Here’s my final thought, for the Steelers to continue to act above the fray, and call attention to Burficts actions, including saying “you’re next”, as a reason he should be out of the league, is utterly absurd. Do you think that’s the worst thing said on the field? Remember when Mike Mitchell literally head hunted and knocked out Tyler Eifert in a 2015 game with a helmet to helmet causing concussion, then pointed at Marvin Jones or AJ Green and said “you’re next”. Big Ben you won, and it was a clean game for a change between these two, up until the scrum after the game – stop crying foul. For a football player to complain in a press conference for generic smack talk is childish.

  43. The talk doesn’t bother me. The attempt to injure players is just part of Burfict’s game. I stopped blaming him. It’s up to the league to get him off the field. But a verbal threat doesn’t bother me one bit. At some point, get a guy off your practice squad to go after his knees. Don’t whine about, get the SOB off the field by any means necessary.

  44. And Marvin Lewis, who hasn’t won a darn thing in all his year of NFL coaching, allows Burfict to continue playing the way he does. And Bengal fans will try to justify it all. Makes me laugh. Hard hitting is fine, intentionally targeting and trying to injure is not.
    The current NFL is not the same as the NFL of year’s ago, with hitting and how you can hit, the past is over. That is the way it is now. James Harrison had to learn that along the way. Burfict, who has done these things many many times, apparently cannot learn it, yet he continues to play. The NFLPA is a wimpy organization who apparently really don’t care about player safety when one of their dues paying members is causing the problems. Laughable.

    I bet Terry Bradshaw heard a lot worse in the 70s.

    —————————————————————

    Bradshaw was there when Dick Butkus laid a dirty hit on one of his Steelers.

    Butkus ended up out of bounds on the Steelers sideline face to face with Mean Joe Greene after the dirty hit. Mean Joe proceeded to grab Butkus by the face mask, look him square in the eye and spit in his face…then threatened Butkus with what would happen if he did it again. Guess what? Butkus didn’t lay any more dirty hits on the Steelers.

  46. You guys made my day with your posts! As far as Burfict and Rothlisburger goes, Ben just made himself look weak and afraid. Burfect looks like he’s lost a step.

  47. If I got a dollar for everytime I said “you’re next” followed be an expletive, I’d be retired in the Caymans by now…

    No one likes a tattle tail Ben…

    Ray Nitschke was a hard nosed player but he never threatened anyone and never trash talked, either. He let his playing do his talking.

  50. Wow…I’m a Bengals fan and actually not a Burfict apologist at all. But it’s hilarious to hear that kind of nonsense from Ben and the Steelers, whose history with the league and the Bengals in particular is filled with brutal, career-threatening hits (see, e.g., Kevin Huber, Keith Rivers, Carson Palmer, etc, etc.). I give it to the Steelers who clearly know how to win and are under the Bengals’ skin; but really? Burfict was taunting someone? Come on…

  51. At this rate the Steelers will have cheerleaders by the end of the season…………playing in the games………. mean joe Greene is somewhere shaking his head

    Extremely doubtful any NE player would even consider it. They would most likely throw beer on him.

  54. Burfict is going to seriously injure someone for life with how he plays. And the NFL will be sued for millions for letting him stay on the field. He needs to go, and now.

  55. It’s too bad that none of the current Steelers have the sack to take that approach with Burfict.

    If he touches Brady, it will happen. Rog would never allow his boy to be manhandled.

  57. The pick was NOT illegal
    If it’s done within 1 yard of the line of scrimmage it’s LEGAL
    And that was at the line.

    Learn the rules

    ARTICLE 4. OTHER PROHIBITED ACTS BY THE OFFENSE. Blocking more than one yard beyond the line of scrimmage by
    an offensive player prior to a pass being thrown is offensive pass interference. See 8-3-1-Item 1 for exception for an ineligible
    offensive player.
    Note: It is also pass interference by the offense to block a defender beyond the line while the pass is in the air, if the block
    occurs in the vicinity of the player to whom the pass is thrown. See 8-3-1-Note for exception for ineligible players.

    That is the actual rule. Blocked well beyond 1 yard – he released his hold on the outside shoulders of the defender 5 yards downfield. That is OPI. He also maintained contact during a pass thrown in the vicinity. That is also OPI. He in fact violated the NFL rules twice in one play and neither was called against a team with a fan base too big to fail.

  58. Both sides say the same things.
    Mike Mitchell told AJ Green he was next.
    Steelers number 98 threaten Vontaze on Twitter..
    Its nothing new..Ben is just being a drama queen

  59. Burfict is a certifiable nutcase psycho.

    But everyone has known that since his freshman year at ASU.

    He simply doesn’t learn and can’t control himself.

    …and remember folks, he was suspended, so this was only his 2nd game of the year.

    I’ll set the over/under on him doing something stupid and getting suspended for something in the next 4 games.

    I don’t thing the irony of your post is lost on anybody…..tough guy….

  61. Burfict laid a dirty hit on AB to try and knock him out and failed. Than he ran his mouth at the guy who knocked him out last year. He then proceeds to get embarrassed by Connor and Vance, both tossing him like the punk he is. He could barely stay on the field, leaving with boo-boos every other play. Maybe instead of threatening Juju he should ask him for tips on how to be a man.

  62. Honestly in my playing days I screamed stuff over the line constantly. A lot worse than ‘you next’. I wasn’t so much headhunting as I was trying to get them to headhunt me. I made it as nasty as I could.

    That said, it looks more yo me like Burfict is calling the guy in motion and pointing him out to the rest of the defense.

    So why did PFT feel the need to include a disclaimer about T. Hill and his off the field issues? Why wouldn’t Ben get the same treatment? Not many players in the league have been accused of sexual misconduct. TWICE!

  67. No. They take after their coach

    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Just as the Patriot players take after theirs. Busted TWICE for cheating scandals, record fines and their QB suspended for four games. Sorry franchise.

  68. It’s beyond funny how deeply the Steelers are ingrained in the minds of the NE fans. They cannot stay away.

  69. Everyone needs to listen to Ben and the Morality Police: hines ward, dudu, shazier, mitchell, ryan clark, ike taylor, brown (kicked Brown’s punter in the face, vince Williams (threatened to shoot Burfict on Twitter), porter, Harrison, Tomlin (only coach in history to trip an opposing player to prevent td), Keith Gary (twisted Ken Anderson’s head 360 degree’s by his facemask), mel blount, ham, lambert, etc..

  70. It was a clean hit on AB and they’re still crying about it and making up lies. No wonder Steelers are such a dumpster fire.

    No one Pays Bug Eyed Tomlin to speak to CEO’s and major companies about leadership and coaching like they do belichick. No one is saying the Steelers are revolutionizing the game like they do the Pats. No one is trying to model their franchises like The Steelers, as they are the Patriots. You were saying?

  72. Do people not realize how many dirty plays the Steelers have done on the Bengals over the years. I’m not saying Vontaze is a saint but they have had their fair share of dirty plays over the years. Ask Carson Palmer, Keith Rivers, Kevin Huber, Tyler Eifert, and Giovani Bernard.

  73. Haha! Talking about BR flopping when landed fish award of all time goes to Brady. He’s a great QB, but he’s the only one I’ve ever seen, on a consistent basis, look at the ref, and cry for a flag as he’s falling to the ground. A couple games ago the defenders hand brushes alongside Brady’s helmet, guess what 15 yard foul. Luck pummeled twice, full body weight, no flags. So, get off your high horses.

  74. yep, look a the play and Burfict is backing away from the hit he could have delivered to Brown … instead #30 Bates III of the Bengals actually contacts Burfict right shoulder pad to #55’s left shoulder pad & Brown (who is in #3o’s grasp) gets shaken up due to that impact. It looks like to me Burfict was focusing so much on not breaking Brown’s noggin that he didn’t avoid Bates hard enough … Burfict is pulling up *upfield* while Bates is kind of rolling over the tackle back downfield & sort of rolls into Burfict’s shoulder for the impact.

    the stillers discuss this before the game especially Brown how they can fake a trip to concussion protocol to be gaslighting Burfict like the institutional narcisssists their whole organization patterns themselves to be. and pointing at Simp-Juiceter? Please … Burfict directs the D in coverages out there & JJ was the motion man on that play. other players were gesturing they had coverage as he was in motion there too

  75. Hey, tb12king….and the rest of your troll friends

    Maybe you should learn a little bit about your favorite team, and it’s owner Mr Kraft.

    Robert Kraft wanted to emulate what Dan Rooney had done with the Steelers when he took over as the Patriots owner in 1994.

    Kraft issued the following statement shortly after news broke that Rooney had passed away on Thursday at the age of 84.

    “I am deeply saddened to hear the news regarding Dan Rooney. When I first entered the NFL, Dan and his family were so gracious to me and my family. They provided guidance on how to build a winning organization, both on and off the field. As important as winning was to Dan, he never lost sight of the importance of giving back to his community.

    “My goal was to build a team that could sustain a winning tradition just like the Rooney family had with the Pittsburgh Steelers. I felt the success we have had as an organization is directly tied to the lessons I learned from Dan.”

  76. Obvious forearm to the head. These are the types of plays the refs should be calling, not incidental contact caused by a defender making a tackle/sack the QB. Some people are willing to give Burfict a pass because he did it against a Steeler but if you look at it objectively the guy should be suspended yet again. Old school or not, cheap shots to the skull have no place in sports anymore.

    It’s beyond funny how deeply the Steelers are ingrained in the minds of the NE fans. They cannot stay away.

    ———————-
    Pats fans could care less about the Steelers anymore, they are yesterdays news and fading. They know Jacksonville and KC are the only AFC teams worth worrying about and even those only get attention when they are next on the schedule.

    Colts>Steelers

  80. lol @ “hey man it’s good to have you back out here…” i’m sure they exchanged “plesantries” too.

  81. Would like to see the Steelers just keep their traps shut instead of giving these fan bases the reason to say anything. That being said, Burfict should be out of the league because he is going to end up critically injuring someone or worse.

    Sounds like Burfict is still upset from getting laid out by JUJU last year. It was so fun to watch.
    ==========================================================================================================================================
    I forgot about that…if anything he (Burfict) should of went after Ju-Ju first. That said, Burfict is obviously still out of control and should be fined or suspended. The “your next” comment is nothing. It was the elbow to the AB’s head that really mattered.

  83. I used to wonder why Steeler fans were the biggest hypocrites i`d ever seen but i see they are just trying to be like their players. DON`T DO WHAT I DO OR I`LL GO TELL ON YOU!

  84. The Bengals left 1:18 on the clock and that’s yet another example of why they’re losers.
    As far as the Burfict drama? Wow. Hold me back. The Steelers complaining about something?
    When does THAT ever happen?

    And steelpenguin owns the NE trolls. Nice!

    Steelpenguin simply spoke to how the Patriots built a winning org. Its annoying enough, why advertise it? Why obsess over the Patriots when its the other teams giving you trouble?

    Haha! Talking about BR flopping when landed fish award of all time goes to Brady. He’s a great QB, but he’s the only one I’ve ever seen, on a consistent basis, look at the ref, and cry for a flag as he’s falling to the ground. A couple games ago the defenders hand brushes alongside Brady’s helmet, guess what 15 yard foul. Luck pummeled twice, full body weight, no flags. So, get off your high horses.

    ——————
    There arent clips out there if Brady dropping to his knees to roll around holding his head a good 3 sevonds after someones fingers graze his helmet. There are several of Roethlesberger doing it. But you are correct that Luck cried less over getting slammed twice than BR did over getting his helmet grazed once.

  87. Steelers’ fans, you realize you’re all yelping about a hit that wasn’t even flagged, right? If you want to go back and dissect the entire game, look at the blatant OPI that gifted you the entire game. I’m sure Burfect would be happy to pay a fine as long as you concede that this was a Bengals’ win and go back to joining the Browns in the AFCN basement where you rightfully belong.

  88. I love how many people come on here to CONSISTENTLY whine about the steelers qb saying this or that, the hits the steeler players make, the mean things they’ve said before, the team is dirty, blah blah blah, etc…
    you cant whine on here about someone else whining…it makes you sound silly…and pretty much the definition of hypocritical..jus’ sayin’
