Isn't it enough for Ben to be a great QB?
Why does he have to be a great person too?
I'll wear my Big Ben jersey either way.
I don't need him to be a role model.
I'd like him to steer clear of trouble so he doesn't get suspended in the future, but that's about all I expect from him.
I still think it's bs he's been suspended. Not that I personally condone anything he's allegedly done wrong. But at the same time, I don't really care what he does as long as he performs on the field.
I just want his best effort everytime he steps on the field. And I believe I've gotten that and I'll continue to get that.
I have a friend of a friend with a kid that's had cancer and has known Ben and the Rooneys. And I've heard from very reliable resources that Ben goes out of his way to make the kid feel special. And the only guy the kid thinks is nicer than Ben is Casey Hampton.
And even though I think that's great, who cares really? As long as he gives everything to bringing home more hardware for us, isn't that enough?
I'm wearing my Big Ben jersey on game 1 and I'm wearing it for SuperBowl Sunday when we bring home #7.
Don't get me wrong, if he produces for you and me and the rest of Steeler Nation, I wish him well. Heck I wish everyone well. But I could care less how Ben acts when he's not on the field. Not my concern. I don't need to even know about it really.
