Exclusive: Roethlisberger On Mike Wallace, Peyton Manning, Tim Tebow & More

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — KDKA’s Bob Pompeani had an exclusive interview with Ben Roethlisberger.

One of the topics of discussion was the future of Mike Wallace.

“A lot of it’s not on Mike, you know, it’s upstairs,” Roethlisberger said. “So, I did. I was saying something to Mike every day. I’m like, ‘Mike, I’m going to keep texting you every day until you come back.’

“And, you know, I love Mike to death, and Mike’s an awesome kid. He’s a great character guy, great football player, obviously. That speaks for itself, but we need Mike back. I want Mike back and I know a lot of people here want Mike back and I know Mike wants to be back here.”

The Steelers want Roethlisberger to be here for a long time too which was the basis of Art Rooney II’s opinion that he tweak his style.

“I sat down and talked with Mr. Rooney, you know, and I never got upset with the comments he made and it was blown way out of proportion, you know, and so for me, I went up and talked to Mr. Rooney about a lot of different things,” Roethlisberger said.

“And when he said tweak, he just meant he wanted me to stay healthy, you know, and it’s my job to do what I can to stay healthy. And I agree with him. I want to stay healthy. I don’t want to be hurt. Last year was miserable at the end of the year with my ankle and thumb and shoulder and stuff like that.

“So, I agree. I needed to tweak a little bit of things here and there to stay healthy.”

Because he wasn’t healthy back in San Francisco last season, Ben told KDKA-TV if he had to do it all over again, he would not have played in that loss to the 49ers.

“I think I may have been healthier later on if I hadn’t,” he explained. “Not that I really did anything to make it worse, but just to get in that extra week of rest probably would have been better for me, but you know, that’s what hindsight is, right? You go back on a lot of things and say it, but I always want to be out there competing for my guys.”

Bob Pompeani: “That was a game that had a lot of significance to it…”

Roethlisberger: “It did. That was one of the main reasons we were out there. The night before, Baltimore lost, I think and it gave us a shot to jump back on top, so I wanted to be out there and I didn’t want to hurt the team and I told the coach, I said, ‘Listen. If you guys don’t want me out there, you make the final decision, because I want to be out there.’”

After his release from the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning was out there as a free agent and finally signing a huge deal with Denver.
Roethlisberger was watching with interest as the situation played out.

“It’ll be interesting for me,” he said. “I want to see how he does in the elements because he’s been in a dome for so long and it’s glorious – there’s no wind, it’s 70 degrees, it’s perfect, you know? So, to see him outside will be the biggest thing that I want to see.”

The second part of that move was the subsequent trade of Tim Tebow to the New York Jets which Roethlisberger says might ultimately undermine Mark Sanchez.

Bob Pompeani: “Does that work in this day and age?”

Roethlisberger: “I mean, the whole thing of having a press conference for a backup quarterback, you know, and … I don’t think it does because if you’re a team or a coach or an owner that has a quarterback that’s already set – and I think Sanchez is their guy, they just gave him an extension, I mean he is their guy – you don’t want to bring this mania in because at the first sign of any trouble, a bad game, they’re going to start – they’re going to be chanting for Tebow. And that’s tough – it’s going to be tough for Sanchez. I feel bad for him because it’s not going to be easy.”

An Exclusive Look At Hines Ward’s Atlanta Mansion

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

ATLANTA, Ga. (KDKA) — After 14 seasons with the Steelers and a potentially “Hall of Fame” worthy career Hines Ward now has a lot of free time on his hands.

He’s spending his retirement at his palatial home outside of Atlanta, Ga., where he recently took KDKA’s Bob Pompeani on an exclusive tour.

Ward says he designed the 13,000 square foot house himself, clipping pictures from magazines for years before he actually built the place.

“I just put a lot into it,” said Ward, who revealed that his mother will be moving in with him next month now that she’s retiring. “Crazy we’re retiring the same year. We’re going to take a vacation to Hawaii and just sit back and reflect and enjoy life.”

Watch The Exclusive Uncut Interview:

While the house is filled with memories, the trophy room is where Hines displays his most prized possessions in a case that’s built into the wall. Inside he displays the two replica Lombardy trophies and representing the Steelers two Super Bowl victories he was a part of, along with the MVP trophy from Super Bowl XL, and the mirror ball trophy he won on Dancing With the Stars. Also on display are his two Super Bowl rings, and in the corner, son Jaden’s first t-ball trophy.

“He puts his own trophies in here,” laughed Hines.

The other room that would be the envy of any football fan: the TV room with its 100-inch flat screen TV surrounded by four 42 inch flat screens. “I look forward to having the guys over on Sunday and watching the game. It’s the Jerry Jones of man caves,” joked Hines.

When Hines and his friends aren’t making use of the TV room, you might find them in the billiard room, or the poker room, or whipping up a snack in the gourmet kitchen. Of course he also has a workout room, which still contains the hyperbaric chamber that he used to recover from injury to be able to play in the Super Bowl in 2005.

“I’m still gonna use it. I paid a lot of money for it.”

The room is painted Georgia Bulldog red, in salute to his college alma mater, with the team’s logo superimposed on the floor. The room also sports a sauna and massage tables.

The outdoor space of the home is as spectacular as the interior, with a huge pool and a full sized basketball court that also gives a nod to the Bulldogs. The court features the team logo, and Hines planted hedges all around.

“I made the hedges because Georgia is known for between the hedges. I try to bring the stadium here. It gets competitive. We play basketball and then go hop in the pool. We have some good games out here.”

Also in the backyard is a stone grotto with a hot tub and small niches for dozens of candles. “It’s nice when you light it up at night.”

Hines says he spared no expense with this house because he wanted get it just right. “(Everything I wanted) I put it in. I wanted it all,” Hines told Bob.

That includes 28 flat screen TVs that will all be tuned to one channel come fall.

“When football season comes around it’s going to be Steelers on every TV,” vows Hines.

“We’re going to be cheering them on.”

Exclusive: Mike Tomlin On Todd Haley & More

PALM BEACH, Fla. (KDKA) — There have been plenty of changes for the Steelers this off-season, perhaps most notably, the release and subsequent retirement of veteran wide receiver Hines Ward after 14 seasons with the franchise.

But before this was the firing of Bruce Arians and the appointment of former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley as the new offensive coordinator.

KDKA’s Bob Popmeani caught up with Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin at the NFL Owners Meeting in Palm Beach, Fla., for an exclusive interview.

“I’ll start by saying Art Rooney owns the football team so obviously he has the autonomy to do what he wants,” Tomlin said. “But some of those reports that were reported regarding the changes are just quite simply untrue. I made the decision to make the change from an offensive coordinator standpoint. I made the decision to hire Todd Haley.

“It’s an enjoyable process for me. I like the process of evaluating and building and that’s what the acquisition of coaches is for me and players for that matter,” Tomlin continued. “Todd’s an impressive guy. I’ve enjoyed getting to know him on a personal level and working with him on a day-to-day basis. I’m really excited about where we’re going.”

Pompeani: “He seems to me as I said to you earlier, a tough love kind of guy. He also shows his emotions on the sidelines. You like those qualities?”

Tomlin: “No question. You know, that’s part of this game. This is an emotional game played by emotional men and you know I think that’s going to help us.”

The Steelers expect Mike Wallace to help them again if he’s here and for now, that’s an “if.” His motivational level should be extremely high because he’d be playing for a contract, but there is a chance Wallace could price himself out of Pittsburgh.

“Obviously we want Mike Wallace on our football team,” Tomlin said. “He’s a valued member of our football team. He’s a quality young man and person. He’s a good worker. This process is what it is. It’s the business arm of it. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, but as we sit right now, he’s a part of us and we’re looking forward to that.”

Stay with KDKA for more of the exclusive interview with Mike Tomlin.
