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.

Trump Meets with Tesla and Ford CEOs to Talk American Manufacturing
Ford canceled a $1.6 billion auto assembly plant in Mexico and has said it will spend $700 million to expand a MI factory instead. He said "we look forward to working with Trump and members of Congress to strengthen the American manufacturing industry".

China's real estate investment rose by 6.9% year-on-year in 2016, marking the strongest annual growth in seven years. Property curbs will continue, monetary policy is turning to neutral with a tightening bias.

Chrissy Teigen Shows Stretch Marks (Again)
Hours later, the mother of the little Luna (9 months) went to the Los Angeles airport to board an American Airlines flight to NY . Fans thanked Tiegen on social media for "being real" and normalising stretch marks in the public eye.

"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.
