BEN ROETHLISBERGER – THE NFL
Ben announced he would submit the draft after the RedHawks sent Louisville to the GMAC Bowl on December 18.
The current 6-foot 5, 240-pound QB is blessed with a strong arm and athleticism rare for its size. Seeing such an award, the Pittsburgh Steelers enlisted Ben in the first round of the 2004 NFL draft with the eleventh pick.
On Ben’s editorial team, Steelers manager Bill Cowher said: ‘If you have the opportunity to get a good, young quarterback who has a huge lead, it’s too golden an opportunity to pass.’ Ben’s fans couldn’t agree more.
On August 4, 2004, Ben signed his first deal with the Steelers, a $ 40 million 6-year deal, and was advertised by Steelers manager Bill Cowher at a press conference as a quarterback in the franchise.
Ben stepped into the starting role after injuring quarterback Tommy Maddox in the second game of the season and became arguably the best rookie quarterback to play the game. He took the Steelers to a 15-1 starter record, only losing in the AFC championship game, and set many rookie passing records, including best pass score (98.1) and highest completion rate. high (66.4%). Ben has received a lot of praise from NFL coaches, including Dallas Cowboys manager Bill Parcells, who compared him to legendary QB Dan Marino. On January 5, 2005, Roethlisberger was unanimously selected as The NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press (AP), the second quarterback to earn the honor.
After his rookie season, Ben convinced running back Jerome Bettis to return for one final season. Ben’s Promise: Give me another season and I guarantee you a Super Bowl ring. Despite knee and thumb injuries, which nearly ended Ben’s season, he was able to take the team to four straight wins to finish the season and earn a wildcard birth in the playoffs. Ben and the Steelers continued their playoff run, defeating Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Denver all in the way. Ben elevated his game during this run, including making a save-match tackle from Nick Harper of the Colts in Indianapolis to keep Jerome’s hope for a championship alive.
On February 5, 2006, in Detroit’s Ford Field (Jerome’s hometown and, coincidentally, where Ben played his first NFL pre-season game in 2004), the Pittsburgh Steelers earned the elusive ‘One for the Thumb! ‘ They defeated the Seattle Seahawks 21-10, allowing Ben to keep his promise to Jerome, and making Ben Roethlisberger the youngest quarterback to win the Super Bowl!
The start of the 2006 season was difficult for Ben. After recovering from an off-season motorcycle accident in which he was seriously injured, he participated in the retreat but was sidelined for the first game of the season after an emergency appendectomy on September 3, 2006. Ben had his first ‘ big game of the season in week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He completed 16 of 19 passes for 238 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions during a 45-7 out of the Chiefs. He continued his success in week 7 by going 16 of 22 for 237 yards and three touchdowns. However, during the third quarter, Ben suffered a concussion following a defensive shot from the Falcons Patrick Kerney.
Although Ben recovered from the concussion to play the rest of the season, another playoff run wasn’t on the cards for the Steelers.
In the first game of the 2007 season, Ben reached a personal milestone: his first career four touchdown game after the Steelers defeated the Cleveland Browns 34-7. He followed him with solid performances against both the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49ers. In week 9, Ben threw five career touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. He tied a team record held by Terry Bradshaw and Mark Malone in the 38-7 win. All five touchdowns were thrown in the first half, making Ben one of only two quarterbacks in the 2007 season to accomplish such a feat, and only the fifth quarterback since the 1970 merger to do so. He also posted a perfect 158.3 passer score in that game. In week 12 against the Miami Dolphins, Ben completed 85.7% of his passes (18-21) setting a new record for the Steelers. In week fifteen against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Ben broke the team’s one-season touchdown pass record when he pitched his 29th touchdown pass, to Nate Washington. The record was previously held by Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw.
2007-2008 also saw Ben make his first trip to the Pro Bowl, joining five other Steelers teammates on the AFC squad. He was 5 for 9 for 42 yards and a one-yard touchdown pass, while playing in the second quarter of the game, which NFC 42-30 won. He also led the AFC in the run with a carry for 18 yards. As for the overall season, Ben’s 32 touchdown passes finished third in the NFL, behind Tony Romo and Tom Brady, while his passer score of 104.1 was second only to Brady. On five separate occasions during the season, Ben brought his team back from a double-digit shortfall to a fourth quarter lead or draw. However, the Steelers would have lost four of those five games as the defense ultimately failed to keep Denver, New York and Jacksonville at bay (twice), respectively. Ben also set a new Steelers single season record with 32 touchdown passes in the 2007 season.
Despite playing most of the season with a right shoulder injury sustained in the first week, Ben started all 16 regular season games for the first time in his career. He cemented his reputation as one of the NFL’s most resounding quarterbacks with comeback wins in the 4th quarter in Jacksonville, against San Diego and Baltimore, finishing a 12-game 92-yard round with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes. to clinch the AFC North Division Title for the third time in its five NFL seasons when the Steelers finished the 2008 regular season with a 12-4 record.

INTERVIEW WITH BEN ROETHLISBERGER
AB MADE ME WHO I AM ‘: PITTSBURGH STEELERS QB BEN ROETHLISBERGER PARLA DI ANTONIO BROWN, OFFSEASON
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After an offseason of silence, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger makes his voice heard.
Ben had a lot to say about the events that have unfolded over the past five months for the Steelers, highlighted by the lack of playoffs and the loss of two key pieces in Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell.
Big Ben hasn’t spoken publicly since December, so the biggest question many have wondered up to this point is why did it take so long?
Part 2 of Bob Pompeani’s interview with Ben Roethlisberger –
‘Well, in the off-season, I like to be alone with family and stay away from madness because the media is my life during the football season,’ said Roethlisberger. ‘So when I can take a break, I try to take a break.’
But there was no interruption from social media and Antonio Brown eventually used them to secure his craft away from the team that enlisted him and made him the highest paid catcher in the NFL.
With good reason, the Bento Brown, ‘Killer B’ ratio has been unmatched over the past six years with over 100 catches and 74 landing passes in each of those seasons.
At one point, Brown claimed the duo had a ‘Wi-Fi connection’ and claimed to love Big Ben. But that all changed within a few weeks, and Ben says he never got an answer from AB as to why the relationship went wrong.
‘I’ll start by saying you’re right, AB made me who I am,’ Roethlisberger said. “It was the largest wide receiver I’ve ever played with. The things he has done in this championship and that we have done together are among the best ever. And you’re right, there were some great things and then all of a sudden they just disappeared and I’m not sure where they went. We’ve always worked on it, you know? We always walked out the other side smiling and hugged him and had fun and moved on, and this time, I really don’t know. ‘
Antonio made it seem like Ben was calling him too publicly. Much of the criticism has come from the weekly radio show on 93.7 The Fan where people listen as the quarterback has given a unique perspective over the years. Ben admits he went too far at times.
‘It’s a fine line to walk sometimes to provide information,’ Roethlisberger said. ‘Give some cool stuff for fans to be a part of and maybe say too much. I know I took some heat and deservedly for some of the comments I made on that show and especially towards him. And I’m sincerely sorry for that and I’m sorry. Did I go too far after that game in Denver? Probably.’
WEB EXTRA: Ben Roethlisberger on his comments by Antonio Brown –
Brown probably went further. He took Denver’s comments as a personal dig and aired his complaints on LeBron James’ HBO show ‘The Shop’.
“All year, the guy called me out. We lose a game, it’s like, yeah, AB should have gone a better way, ‘Brown said on the show. ‘This is the kind of guy he is. Feels like he is the owner. Brother, you threw that shit on the d-line, how the fuck am I gonna get it? You gotta give me a better ball! ‘
‘I can see where that comment was perceived as being negative towards AB, but it wasn’t meant that way,’ Ben said. ‘It was more, you know, just like everything throughout the season, it’s a compliment to AB because he doubled every single play and that’s why … it’s still so amazing that he was able to make it through all the adversity of double and of triple teams. It meant more that I would have to go to JuJu because he was single covered. I regretted it. That’s the problem with media and social media and stuff like that, as soon as you say it, sorry it just goes so far. You can’t take it back and I wish I could because if that’s what ruined our friendship and relationship then I’m sincerely sorry for it. ‘
With the end of the season and the start of the offseason, questions from former teammates and members of the national media have emerged at the forefront of Ben’s leadership.
‘It was painful,’ Ben said. “[When some comments came out,] they were offensive. You know, and it was painful for myself. It was painful for my family. Leadership is ultimately about winning football matches and I haven’t done a good enough job of being a leader because we haven’t made the playoffs. So I need to reevaluate myself and how I can be a better leader. This year, this offseason, these OTAs, minicamps, training camps. How can I become a better leader so that I can win football matches, which ultimately leads to the hope of playoffs and a super bowl because at the end of the day is the ultimate goal? That’s all I want to do is win a championship and everyone else in the locker room, that’s all they want to do too.
WEB EXTRA: Ben Roethlisberger on his leadership –
With the ‘Killer B’ era now over, Ben was asked if he had tried to contact Brown now that the dust has settled.
‘You know, I contacted him a couple of times, texted him, called him. I didn’t get an answer, ‘Ben said. ‘But I’m sure he’s getting busy with his season and preparing like me with the guys we have here. But you know, I can’t wait to reconnect with him, talk because, as I said, he’s a good friend of mine. I still call him a good friend. And I hope we can reconnect and I hope our friendship can continue to grow. ‘
