Big Ben Back To Work

SOUTH SIDE (KDKA) — Despite playing with a broken nose and then having surgery just two days ago, Ben Roethlisberger took part in practice full throttle.

Roethlisberger had a protective face shield on his helmet and will wear it for the game against Cincinnati. Mario Lemieux told him he looked like a hockey player.

Interestingly, right after he suffered that broken nose, he was seen talking to Referee Terry McAulay in Baltimore.

“I just asked him if he saw the blood … [and] if he thought that he, you know, went for my head, and his response was just ‘He was trying to tackle you,’ so I just let it go at that,” Roethlisberger said.

    I can’t even begin to express my disgust on this issue, baby only broke his nose, there is miller out there suffering a concussion and you don’t hear about him. I am really sick and tired of how much praise rothelisburger gets he truly don’t deserve. I will never thing of him as a great quarterback such as montana and young for the 49ers, bradshaw for the 70’s steelers, dan marino john elway johnny unitas etc. Ben will never join those ranks and I will continue to dislike until his retirement especially after what he has done to those girls and has gotten away with. He has lost ny respect for all time and I will never change my opinion on this.
