Did the Pittsburgh Steelers Ben Roethlisberger Hint at Retirement?


It would have given the coach, General Manager Kevin Colbert, and Steelers senior leadership the opportunity to develop plans for their offseason as they relate to their three superstars on offense.

Two winters ago Pittsburgh's season ended in the wild card game. On Tuesday morning, Ben Roethlisberger held a press conference that woke everyone up with it's drama-filled content.

Ben has taken a beating during his 13 seasons in the National Football League, but he is only 34.

"I'm going to take this offseason to evaluate, to consider all options, to consider health and family and things like that and just kind of take some time away to evaluate next season, if there's going to be a next season, all those things", Roethlisberger said.

With Roethlisberger's uncertainty and with Giants general manager Jerry Reese telling reporters the day after a playoff loss to the Packers that the organization needs to think about life after Eli Manning, the graying of the Class of 2004 quarterbacks is upon us.

"You want to be able to leave this game walking out of it, and in a healthy spot". He sounded nearly envious of one of his best pals, Heath Miller, who retired after last season in one piece, physically. James Harrison is going through a similar situation right now at the age of 38, but he has already commented on his retirement by simply saying "I'm not done".

It's also early in the offseason, when players are more exhausted and beat up from the regular season before becoming more enthusiastic about playing as the season gets closer. The NFL Network's Aditi Khinkabwala reported that Roethlisberger had to talk to Brown about it during the game, a fact Roethlisberger didn't deny on his radio show.

As Grimly Predicted, 2016 Emerges As The Hottest Year Yet
If you don't live under an air-conditioned rock, it's probably not hard to believe that 2016 was the hottest year on record. Though that increase is within the margin of error , it makes 2016 the third year in a row to break the temperature record.

Diego Simeone Talks Antoine Griezmann Rumours
Sky sources understand Manchester United are interested in signing Antoine Griezmann, should he become available in the summer. Speaking to Spanish TV show Minuto #0, he had siad: "I don't know what the interest from Manchester [United] will be".

What winning the NFC title game means for Atlanta
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers came right back, moving quickly down the field in what was expected to be a back-and-forth shootout. Atlanta has covered four of its last five, the exception being in Week 17 when the Falcons eased up on the Saints in a 38-32 win.

"He is one of the best in the business with the plays that he makes and has made over the course of his career". Tonight we didn't make those plays. I'm not alarmed by that process.

After facing Colin Kaepernick, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jared Goff, Joe Flacco, Trevor Siemian, Bryce Petty, Matt Moore, and Brock Osweiler in consecutive weeks, a veritable rotation of back-ups, nobodies, and has-beens, Roethlisberger was finally supposed to be the quarterback to expose the Patriots defense. It was believed that Bell was injured on his fifth carry of the game, but that has come out to not be true.

Mike Tomlin is 1-1 in Super Bowls; Cowher is 1-1.

"He was doing a great job of managing it". There was the questioning of the intensity at training camp practices just before the Steelers went into a 4-game tailspin this October.

Heck, who knew football and daytime drama could pair together so well, just over the hill from Baldwin, on the Southside? I was aware of it.

The Steelers have an elite receiving corps, even if they struggle with social media mishaps and failed drug tests.
