    Cowher says Roethlisberger was respected by team

    http://blogs.nfl.com/2010/04/26/cowher- ... d-by-team/

    There are varying reports that Ben Roethlisberger was not very popular with his teammates. Former Steelers coach Bill Cowher does not necessarily agree with that.

    Cowher who coached the enigmatic quarterback for three seasons joined Boomer Esiason on WFAN in New York on Monday morning (via Sports Radio Interviews) and said that Roethlisberger was liked by his teammates. Of course, winning had a lot to do with it.

    But his suspension could hurt that.

    You know what Boom, I think we like anybody that can help us win football games, Cowher said. I think theres no question that this guy, on the football field is tremendously respected by his teammates and hes respected by opponents. Hes a talent. The guy is an unbelievable competitor.

    Hes got a great feel for the game, but certainly with some of the things that have been brought on in the last couple of years, it kinda puts a damper on it. I think again, as you know, the bottom line is trying to win football games.

    The one thing you want to make sure the players do is they dont do anything to dampen your ability to win football games. What Ben has done is put himself in a situation where hes gonna miss six games. Hopefully hell do the right thing and minimize that to four.

    Cowher added that he thought the suspension would be good for Roethlisberger and that this should be an eye-opener for the quarterback. And because of that, Cowher does not believe that Roethlisberger will be traded.

    ON the football field, but definitely not off the field.

    But Florio says it isn't true.

    Asked by Esiason whether Roethlisberger is well liked in the Steelers' locker room, Cowher gave an answer that sounded a little uncomfortable and suggested that what the Steelers like about Roethlisberger is confined to what he does on Sundays.

    "Uh, you know, I mean, you know what Boom, I think it's all," Cowher stammered at first, before continuing, "I think we like anybody that can help us win football games."

    If he isn't liked by the team or in the locker room, what could be the reasons ?

    I thought he was just that way to waitresses, fans, children, reporters and basically the general public ? I thought at least he would be able to muster up enough humility to treat his team with some personality.

    I really could care less if he is an arrogant d*ck. What I don't want is him getting himself suspended, doing ish to get himself traded or bring negative attention on this team. It would be nice if our QB was a terrific, charismatic, and loveable teddy bear. But, he isn't. He is however an elite talent with 2 SB rings. I'll take that anyday over a Tim Tebow type that can't throw his way out of a wet paper sack.

    It is precisely his arrogant d*ck behavior which is getting him in questionable situations that bring negative attention to the team, getting himself suspended, and potentially getting himself traded. The league isn't suspending him because Goodell has some magical evidence that was unavailable to the Georgia D.A. which proves that Ben is some kind of a sexual predator. The commissioner is suspending him because his continued arrogant d*ck behavior is an embarrassment to himsef, his family, his team, the fans, and the league. If he stops being an arrogant d*ck to everyone, he shouldn't have any problems. His mandated behavior profile will simply state "You are an arrogant d*ck" (I'm sure there should be a DSM-IV criteria for that), and he will receive treatment which will hopefully prevent further arrogant d*ck behavior in the future. Problem solved.

    The allegation of him exposing his genitals and saying "you can do what you want" is a perfect concrete illustration of being an arrogant d*ck. Randomly exposing yourself at inopportune times and pointing at your junk is saying "look at me, I am a d*ck." And having the gall to say "you can do what you want" to my exposed penis is the height of arrogance. Therefore, he is an arrogant d*ck. Case closed.

    IF he really did do and say that, an alternative explanation could just be that he has a very off-beat sense of humor. You know, like that sock puppet commercial of a few years ago. :P


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!
