    The Media again digging..yet not looking at the facts!!

    "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."

    And now Ben is being compared to Michael Vick. Wow!!

    Dub,

    Weren't you very critical of Ben when this story broke? Am I not remembering that correctly? Weren't you the one with Christian stance that his attire, company, and location were inappropriate?

    I could be wrong, but you seem very defensive now. Has something changed?

    I mean, I agree that the media is hanging him before the facts come out. But, I also feel like he should have been more careful after the rape allegations. A pub crawl in a college town is probably not the best idea for a celebrity in such a situation.

    Naturally I was upset originally. I was upset at the shirt Ben wore and what was on it that night. Remember? I had to take a step back and look at this from a different angle in regards to the allegations. Being a Christians doesn’t make you non-human. We all have our character flaws.

    Let it be know I never said any thing negative about him going out to a club or the company he kept.
