It's not the first time that you have let people down, Ben, but it might be the first time that you have actually acknowledged it.

It's a game. With things going on that you can't control. Things happen. You lost. As long as you tried your best, you let no one down.

In life, you can control your own behavior. You are a media darling getting paid millions of dollars. One of the requirements for getting those millions is that you conduct yourself as a decent person. You did not exercise control over yourself. In this sense, you let a lot of people down. See if you can control those things that you have the power to control.

Just curious, did anyone else think the picture sucked? It looked like we were watching it through a dark filter.

I get the hate on Ben for the sexual assault charges but where is the hate for Ray Lewis? Why is that guy still allowed to be walking free let alone playing professional football. When the commentators talk about Ray Lewis they are all drooling over themselves. For those who don't remember Ray and a couple of friends stabbed 2 people to death after a superbowl party in 2000.

Correction: Ray himself wasn't involved in the stabbing, his boys were.

For the Ray wasn't involved with the murder, he just gave a buddy a ride who happened to have just committed a murder.

It wasn't just Ben, although he certainly didn't play well. Where was the defense? I'm sorry but William Gay has to go. He is good at getting burned but that's about it. Troy was nowhere to be seen and he got beat for a touchdown. The team looked flat and confused at key parts of the game. Not a good performance at all.

It's not new found. He had "playing for Jesus" on his cleats all the while boozing it up with no moral compass.

I'm a Steeler fan and I am very bitter that he has cast this dark cloud over our team. In any case, he has not been found guilty of rape so I want people to stop calling him a rapist.

Lock your daughters up, Big Ben's not in a good mood.

This is how sports are bigger than the game that contains them, they teach us about life. My own view is that God (substitute 'nature', 'unknowable higher power', or 'Darwin' if you don't like the term 'God') knows what personal work we still need and the best way to challenge us.

So Big Ben and Mike Vick (& I love the courage of both in facing down their personal demons) have been sent back to continue working on humility, amends, and gratitude and not be granted cheap 'redemption' through a first-year back trophy. Hope the league's labor dispute doesn't deprive us of watching the rest of their journeys.

On the positive for the league, the BEP's pumpin' it at halftime, and Usher & Slash thrown in as a bonus, awesome! We were rockin' outmaki, my son had just gone to the Usher show here in the ATL so his jaw dropped when he came onstage. And that jaw-dropping was ok with me, unlike during the wardrobe malfunction a few years back!\

Best commerciial? Hands-down it was the CHRYSLER spot with Eminem getting out of the car after the long narrattive about how Chrysler is back on track. Slim gets all up in our grill and says, "this is Detroit, this is what WE DO" Only thing better would been if he had added an "MF" at the end.

The best part of that ad for me was "Imported From Detroit". That one was one of four total I really like.

Wow, Rooney, kind of heartless just to walk on by the guy who got your team to the Super Bowl, isn't it?

Great point. It was rather interesting. I'm sure there's more to this story. Stay tuned.

From the story. (Third paragraph, you didn't read too deeply, did you? lol)

"Not long after Green Bay's 31-25 win was in the books, Roethlisberger sat in front of his locker, his face buried in a towel to hide the tears. He wept so earnestly that when 78-year-old Pittsburgh owner Dan Rooney turned up for his customary postgame handshake with the players, a tradition that stretches back decades, he took one look at his struggling 28-year-old quarterback and simply kept walking."

Ben still believes that he is the only grease that moves the wheel.  Get over yourself, Ben.  The only tears that you shed last night were for your benefit alone.

I didn't get that take on this story..but I wouldn't argue your observation. I wonder though, how you came to your conclusion about him? why were his tears just for him? He is the QB and should take responsibility for the interceptions that if they don't happen the Steelers could have easily won the game. So why the hate again?

Being a Steeler fan, of course I was disappointed in the results of the game. But considering that they were down by 18 points and turned it around to almost winning in the last minute, you have to give them credit for that. Ben wasn't at his best, but it wasn't his worst game ever. One interception was due to being hit as he released the ball. Ben "manned up" and accepted the blame but just as it is a team effort to win, it is also a team effort to lose. We'll be back for # 7.
