He's being exposed as a phony. I would take Russell Wilson over him right now.
    I believe you would take any quarterback over Ben, so, eh, to the Russell Wilson comment.

    And, my kids got to meet him when Bettis was still playing and they walked away thinking he was pretty cool and so did me and my wife, good days, bad days, ya know. But, I do understand how first impressions can leave a lasting memory good and bad. The saying, "You only get one chance to make a first impression" carriers a lot of weight.

    Even though reality says different.

    He's a punk, and he's always been a punk. Should have stayed away from the strippers and the groupies and focused on being a good parent.
    Links please? Oh wait, that sounds like someone else on this board.

    Ben is partial owners of King Street Bar & Grille by me. People that met him at King Street said he was an arrogant, cocky douche. I'm willing to bet that was early in his career though. I don't know because I haven't met him.

    At the end of the day, the guy might be arrogant... That's his problem, not mine. I just want the guy to win football games.

    If his douchebagness is causing players to lose respect for him then that's a different story.

    That's what I was thinking of. One of those long skinny cars where the race last 2 seconds and a parachute comes out of the back. Although I might need the parachute after I flip it and take off into orbit

    I haven't met Ben, but I have met Russell Wilson and he's tiny - I'd guess 5'6" to 5'8". I'm glad he's getting a legit shot in the NFL, but I wouldn't want my franchise resting on such a small QB. Big Ben gets hurt all the time behind our line, I bet Wilson would get killed.

    Yeah, even under the best OL's with the best of mobility a guy will still take some NFL hits. He's a gamer, but I'm with you on this one.

    Hate post #1877, you paint yourself as an expert on everything Steelers. You get all the inside information. How is it you draw the conclusion that Ben is hated by his team mates? Is it based on you hating him? If you are so in love with Russel Wilson then please do this board a favor, go find a Seahawks board.

    This was three years ago. On a side note Trai and Rashard was pretty cool. Trai is huge and Rashard is short.
