Relax Ben, We're Already Sold

LaddCorrespondent IFebruary 10, 2009

As if leading one of the greatest final drives in Super Bowl history wasn’t enough, Big Ben is now Steelers-didn%27t-know-Big-Ben-had-broken-ribs-in-SB" target="_blank">claiming that he did it all with two broken ribs.

“Luckily, in the game, I didn’t take any big hits to make ‘em hurt,” Roethlisberger told SI.com. “But I knew all along there was something wrong. There wouldn’t have been anything that could have been done about fractured ribs anyway. It was just suck it up and play.”

Ben, I don’t know what planet you’re living on, but you don’t need to convince us anymore.  We get it.  You are good.  Very good.  OK, very, very good.  Are you happy now?  Has your ego been properly stroked?  Good, because you are starting to sound like a sissy and it’s upsetting me.  Go disappear for awhile with that pretty girlfriend of yours and leave the post-game injury excuses to bums like L.T. and Cromartie.
