    I always take such claims with a grain of salt - but as I’ve said elsewhere, the silence is deafening. By that I mean the silence of bens teammates. I recognize the urge to stay out of the mud - but I find it interesting none of the other players ever defend Ben against this stuff. There are a lot of bread crumbs on the Big Ben trail in Pittsburgh, and I don’t think they lead to a beloved teammate who has the respect of his peers.

    Pouncey always seems to support him. Ben always seems to have a good relationship with the O-line. Charlie Batch was a major supporter and still speaks highly of him today. The Bus always seemed to have a great relationship with Ben.

    Ben has his faults. But I think the me-first guys blow it out of proportion.

    I don't think Ben is perfect by any means. But you have to realize that not everybody is going to love a guy over a span of a decade or more.

    There are players on Green Bay that have taken shots at Rodgers too. Montana wasn't loved by every 49er player. Neither was Steve Young.

    Richard Sherman isn't a Russell Wilson fan either. Just saying.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. SO WHY DELAY THE INEVITABLE?

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    I was impressed with Ben helping out Switzer. He definitely should do that but he could easily not have with having AB and JuJu.

    I wonder how many times has Juju been to Ben's house?

    Any QB who doesn’t have a good relationship with their OL is a dead man walking.

    I'm not sure why any elite professional athlete would intentionally do something that would make himself look incompetent in front of millions of people. But if someone tweeted it then it must be true.

    Maybe, but I don't think that's intentional.
