Has Roethlisberger learned his lesson?

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had an behavioral evaluation done over the weekend as apart of the process to have his suspension reduced from six to four games.

The real question is has Roethlisberger really learned his lesson finally?

According to ProFootballTalk.com, Jack McCallum of Sports Illustrated has written an in depth article on Roethlisberger.

The telling sign is that after his 2006 motorcycle accident he vowed to always wear a helmet, but several months later KDKA caught him riding a mortorcycle without a helmet.

Most people after almost losing their life in an accident would take strides to make sure that never happens again.

However, this is Roethlisberger and the article paints a picture that he clearly has no regard for his life or others as he probably thinks since he is a starting quarterback in the National Football League nothing will happen to him.

The fact of the matter is he is wrong it doesn’t matter who you are anything can happen as there is no guarantee you will be alive or able to walk tomorrow.

In the end, if Rothelisberger doesn’t learn his lesson from this incident it will only be a matter of time before he is out of the NFL and it will be extremely hard for him to get back in as  no team will touch a quarterback that is one incident away from a year long suspension, unless they are desperate for a quarterback.
