"It’s a valid question for this franchise, and one that seemed to be punctuated inadvertently by Tomlin on Tuesday. Asked to describe Roethlisberger and comment on his level of maturity, Tomlin said this:
“He’s a ridiculous competitor. A good guy. A guy that wants to win. A guy that doesn’t mind toting the burden that comes with being the quarterback of our football team. Really, what you see is what you get, from my perspective.”
Never mind that the whole “good guy” statement is in some seriously precarious territory. Notice that the majority of the statement centers on football. And the reality is, just like Vick and the Falcons, that’s the only thing the Steelers can be sure about when it comes to their star. He’s a great NFL quarterback, arguably one of the five best at his position. But anything outside of the facility appears to be an utter crapshoot at this point."
