    The great leader Ben Roethlisberger at it again...

    Calling out Bell, saying he don't know about him making it sound like the rookie is dogging it. Hey Ben are you trying to take the pressure off your poor play.

    BellIt appears that Ben Roethlisberger’s weekly radio show on 93.7 The Fan was a little more interesting than just the usual cliché-filled stuff we might find from the Steelers’ quarterback yesterday.

    To say that Roethlisberger called out rookie running back Le’Veon Bell was an understatement.

    When asked about Bell, this is what he had to say, “You can’t get a read on him. One day he’s practicing, one day he’s not. One day he’s going hard, one day he’s not. I wish I could (tell you) if he were a guy like Heath Miller, who you knew was busting his butt every day to get back there.”

    I’m no expert but that sounds to me like you aren’t real impressed with a guy’s work-ethic. To be compared to Heath Miller, who has returned from a major knee injury in roughly nine months, sends a pretty strong message that you aren’t doing what you need to be doing.

    Context ... The way it is being printed/portrayed is not the context in which it was said. Heard the show, and basically all Ben was saying was that since the injuries he hasn't been able to get a read on how good the kid may be when he comes back. Not like a proven commodity like Heath.

    I wouldn't take that as Ben not owning his stuff. I would take it more as him trying to motivate a rookie. With that said, we don't have the context of the entire conversation, so judgment of this convo will be short sighted and incomplete at best.

    Maybe to you Shawn, but not to the media outlets. I have already seen three different articles taking it the same way. The Depot being just one of them.

    The media, as we all know are like sharks in bloody water. This team, which has been so good for so long ... isn't; and the media is looking for any sign of internal dissension/disharmony. We all know to expect this from the likes of Bouchette, the lawyer, PSPN etc.

    So a veteran player is calling out a rookie? Never seen that before in the NFL.
