There is no greater stage for Roethlisberger to follow through on this quest than during Super Bowl week. In his case, words really can speak just as loudly as actions. An athlete in Roethlisberger's position can inspire others by sharing details about what he did wrong, why it happened and how he has found what he describes as "inner peace" while becoming a "better person."

Kerry Collins did something similar at Super Bowl XXXV when he was quarterback for the New York Giants. Collins devoted one day of his media access to field questions about his battle with alcoholism and subsequent recovery. After his story was told, the book was closed and the media moved on.

Roethlisberger easily could do the same here. But he'd rather spew clichés and dodge inquiries as if Green Bay's Clay Matthews were closing from behind in the pocket.

So, if Collins was being sued for millions of dollars for being a drunk, you would be OK with your client going on national TV and telling the world what kind of an a-s-s he had been in the past....in detail?

The stupidity is mind numbing.

Yeah Alex, because the media has moved on after it was decided in APRIL that they didn't even have enough to arrest him.
