This is more of a rant than an actually article and I’m sorry for that I’m just tired of people and their unintelligent comments. People who hate are one of two things.

A.) A Fan of another team


B.) Have no clue about the sport whatsoever.


I’m sorry to those of you who said good things, but to all the Ben haters why not do what John Cena's old finisher was and "STFU". The only thing that looks bright on the Steelers this year so far is Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger has 860 yards passing, 3 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, a completion percent of 71.2, and 88.7 passer rating. He is fifth in yards passing behind greats like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady and above the passing king Drew Brees. Brees hasn’t thrown for more yards than Roethlisberger has. Though Brees has more touchdowns, it doesn’t mean he better or not better. 

Two weeks in a row the Steelers defense has been a letdown in the final quarter. Blame it on the absence of Polamalu I think not. Pittsburgh has always been about making their own stars and letting money hungry people like Burress and Porter go. Granted they were great players but they wanted too much.


The defense lost to Chicago and Cincinnati, I mean the game last week we held the Bengals to -10 yards total in the first quarter WTF happened. As for Ben hosting Raw, yes it dumb to do in season however RAW is probably the most watched show on Monday nights second to MNF. If you have such a huge problem with it don’t watch it damn and another thing about people who call WWE a white trash sport, just remember one thing at one time or another everybody was a fan of pro wrestling whether you were watching Hogan, Flair, Harley Race, Dusty Rhoades, Magnum T.A. At one point in the 90's wrestling was the biggest sport on television.

This is not different than hosting SNL. There is not a problem as long as he doesn’t get in the ring. Nobody harps on Peyton Manning for being every commercial last year. Plus everybody saying he needs to concentrate on football Monday and Tuesday are days off in pro football land, unless there is a game Thursday most teams don’t practice those days.

If you have negative things to say make sure you sound intelligent and know what you are talking about before putting stupid stuff like "Big Ben sucks" or "Rapelisberger" come on people grow up.
