Ben Roethlisberger: We are all about each other

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been the subject of critical comments from a variety of former teammates since the end of the 2018 season and several current teammates have spoken up to refute those barbs, but the quarterback has not offered a direct response to any of it over the last few months.

That didn’t change when he provided a few quotes to the team’s website about the start of the offseason program. Roethlisberger said that it has been “fun to be out there throwing with the guys” for the first time since Week 17 of the 2018 season.

Roethlisberger was also asked about having all of the core veterans on the team on hand for the voluntary sessions and his answer included what could be taken as a comment about some of the people who aren’t in Pittsburgh any longer.

“I expect nothing else,” Roethlisberger said. “We want to show we are here, dedicated to this team, dedicated to having a great season. We are all about each other.”

Running back Le'Veon Bell and wide receiver Antonio Brown were the biggest departures from the Steelers. Bell wasn’t with the team at all last season while Brown’s final days with the team did little to live up to the idea of full dedication to the team. That may not have been the impetus for Roethlisberger’s comments on Tuesday, but the choice of words doesn’t feel totally coincidental given the words some others have chosen to use about Roethlisberger of late.

  1. “We are all about each other”……”now if you would not mind stepping behind that bus over there”….

  2. It’s the Browns Division Now!!! Finally!! Baker in the Kitchen with some good Recipe’s

  3. ““We are all about each other”……”now if you would not mind stepping behind that bus over there”….”

    Here come the false narratives again. He made one – ONE – negative comment about AB all year. He took the blame for bad games and losses over and over throughout his career. When did AB take the blame for a loss, when did he talk about how bad he played?
    I’ll make it easy for you – never. And when he left Pittsburgh he tore up everyone he could. But Ben is the one with the problems.

  4. I can see how he would want to change the narrative but as others have noticed, the bus that keeps running over people starts at Ben’s locker.

  5. Queue the “throwing teammates under the bus” crowd. The statements might be funny, if they weren’t so worn out and lame. They are pretty much on par with the ones who think the Patriots cheat all the time. LOL

  6. Until he throws a game sealing pick and wants everyone to know it couldn’t have been his fault. But while lifting weights and doing walk throughs in shorts it’s a true brotherhood, all about the team etc…

    LOL- probably should win one division one time before claiming you own it.
    Fun fact: The last time the Browns won the division was 1989 when it was the AFC Central. And if you want to get technical, that team was also the Ravens.

  8. sure Ben sure – you just had two pro bowl players shoot there way out of town. something is rotten in Pittsburgh – that much is clear. Its either you, Tomlin or the ownership but stop with the all is well routine – where there is smoke there is fire.

  9. That’s a weird thing to say after you’ve destroyed your entire football team. But then again, he was always dumb.

  10. Ben has never had anything to do with the action of Bell or brown, he does not run this organization, head coach, GM and owners make the decisions. Just a bunch of ill imformed Steeler haters that wish they had QB as Ben.

  11. I’m still chuckling that they finally beat the Patriots then miss the playoffs….

  12. The Ben haters are out in force today with their lame and very tired immature rants. Pathetic how eager these trolls are to go after anything Ben says or does whether true or not. Even a support of the Baltimore Murderer showed his ignorance with a comment…….shallow end of the gene pool must be pretty empty at this point.

    GO STEELERS!

    Interesting that a Baltimore fan (apparently) would make a post like this. This akin to those idiots that call Ray Lewis a murderer, or insist that he got off after involvement in the death of 2 people. Mr. Lewis was never convicted of killing anyone, nor was he convicted in any activity that led to the death of these men. Moreover, after this incident Mr. Lewis avoided any sort of activity that might be construed as inappropriate. He has been an upstanding citizen and any mistakes he may have made are far in his past.

    Mr Roehtlisberger has had a similar experience. Never charged nor convicted, he has to all appearances led an exemplary life since 2010.

    Get off it.

    Enjoy that 6-10 season in 2019 Ben.
    —————————————–
    The Steelers have never had a losing season record with Roethlisberger under center. AB leaving isn’t going to change that.

    James Harrison was all about the team and they lied to him. The players and the organization can’t even get out of their own way.

    Your source for evidence that they lied? Mr. Harrison? Not that he would be biased or anything…

    You’re calling him dumb after this post?
    Child please…..

  17. “James Harrison was all about the team and they lied to him. ”

    Jame Harrison refused to mentor new OLBers because he said he wasn’t going to help someone take his job. He was a great player, terrible person but most importantly – he was all about James.
    Is it too much to ask for you to know what you are talking about?

    I guess you forgot about Lewis pleading guilty to obstruction of justice…….cherry picking is your specialty? He lied about his home boys and destroyed a white suit…..but hey its easy to omit facts when they don’t fit your fables.

    I guess you forgot to read the post carefully, or have a hard time with comprehension. I have been a “bleed black and gold” Steelers fan since 1968 when I was 14 and went to my first game in Pitt Stadium and watched the Steelers lose to the St. Louis Cardinals, 6 years before they ever won a playoff game, 1 year before Mr. Noll came to town and went 1-13. I hold no brief for the Ravens. However, I am as weary of the “Ben is a rapist” tome as I am of the “Ray Lewis is a murderer” diatribe. Both of them screwed up. Both of them realized the error of their ways and have lived an honest life since their transgressions. My point was that a Ravens fan has a lot of gall to bring up the sex assault stuff against Ben when the Ravens have their own star player with issues in the past.

    Not sure what my fables are or what facts I omitted. Mr. Lewis was not convicted in any criminal activity that led to the death of 2 people. He may have failed to reveal what he knew to authorities, hence the OoJ charge and conviction.

    Get off it.

    Steelers win the divsion next year. Browns will be better but there’s no denying Big Ben. He’s never had a losing season.

    ———-

    More likely the Steelers will battle the Bengals for 3rd place

  22. The Steelers will probably be one of the more interesting teams this year. Are they going to let the drama implode them and they finish 6-10/7-9 while the Browns take over the division or will the offseason bring the remaining Steelers together and they play better without the distractions?

    I dont think the team has much room for middle ground

  23. Spoken like a real team leader. The other funny thing…
    Ben has beaten TB12 3 times on his career ( Tom won the other 8). Racks of those years NE went to the Super Bowl ( they won 2 of them).

  24. Perhaps Goddell, needs to step it up and put a gag order on these players. It’s childish and it’s getting old.

  25. More likely the Steelers will battle the Bengals for 3rd place

    Battling Dalton, good one lol! The Steelers may have missed the playoffs with all the chaos but they still beat New England.

  26. Big Ben stopped the Colts from winning the AFCCG on the shoe saving tackle that eventually won Bettis his SB & got him into the HOF. People forget that.

  27. I’m still chuckling that they finally beat the Patriots then miss the playoffs….
    ================================================================================

    I think all 5 regular season losses for the Pats were to teams that didn’t make the playoffs.

    ——————————————
    And so did the Lions, Titans and Dolphins. What is the common thing among them and the Steelers? They all won their mini-SB and none made the playoffs.

  29. ONCE, on his radio show, he said that he told AB that he should have run a flatter route. (Denver game that ended in an interception) In his after game presser, he blamed HIMSELF for that loss. Steelers haters jump on an inflated headline and run with it as fact. You don’t follow the team so you really have no idea what you’re talking about. Give it a break already and get a clue!
