Ben you have given hope to the Steeler fans again and for that you will always have a special place in all Pittburghers hearts. However with great power and admiration great responsibility is also expected. Hearing about your lack of wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle is not setting a good example for the youth of Pittsburgh. My own Niece who does admire you a lot would not wear her helmet when riding her bike. Her reasons she gave were "Well, I am 16 and the law only requires a helmet when you are 12 or under" and "Ben Roethlisberger doesn't wear a helmet". That was 2 weeks ago when my mother my nieces Grandmother and I were trying to get her to wear a helmet. A week ago she fell off her bike and hit her head. She was not wearing a helmet. She is now in the ICU at Children's hospital in Pittsburgh. You are looked up to and admired by millions it is for them and yourself as well that you should wear your helmet. Today I will visit my Niece in ICU as I have everyday for a week and I will be bringing her a copy of "Fighting Back" by another Steeler Rocky Bleier to inspire her to recover as he did from his injuries suffered in Vietnam since she too is an athlete. Ben all of Pittsburgh wants you to return the Steelers to the skill and expertise and the level of moral and ethical values of the Steeler team of Rocky Bleier, Franco Harris, Stalworth, Bradshaw, Swan, Webster, Sweeney and the rest. You can do that based on your playing skills we all have confidence in that. However if you don't put on your helmet when you ride and set a positive example for the children of Pittsburgh and indeed all of the USA you will never measure up to Rocky Bleier or any of the great Steelers of the past. Please live up to the standard that the Steelers of the past set both on and off the playing field and put on your helmet. Not wearing your helmet is getting kids hurt so it is time you put it on.

Can't wait for the upcoming season. Its almost August. I love to see you in action. I vote you as SEXIEST QB in the NFL. I just ordered the coolest steeler charm braclet. There is this awesome ring I want to. Take care Ben and oh yeah I think Zeus is about 9months or 10. My Neighbor has a dog named Zeus that looks just like that.

Hey Ben,

I heard that Whisenhunt is gonna prepare you to throw more this season. I think it's cool that you'll have 3 recvrs that are interchangeable.

Anywhoo, your dog is really cute. He's probably 7 months. Take care and Good Luck.

I was sorry to read about the death of your Grandfather. It's always hard to loose a loved one. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.


I have admired the way you've conducted yourself on the field and been an example of a Godly athlete. It's inspiring to see you play and I hope you guys have a great season this year - thanks for giving the Steeler nation hope again - we've been alive and kicking but now every game is so exciting to be a part of. The Steelers enter living rooms all across the nation as welcomed guests, usually win or lose.

Hi ben, I feel I'm your biggest fan. I paid X3's the normal for your jersey (since it was the best seller.) But my questions is do you think that if plaxico would have stayed around, it would have stunted your growth as a great NFL QB. It is well documented that you two improvised on some plays and the coaching staff didnt like it...but look at the results...the best steeler football i've seen since the days of kordell taking us to championships....Now lets just hope your not totally like kordell stewart and get us to the big game and blow it in the end....nice playoff run this year. Cant wait to see you when i travel from denver,co to houston, tx to watch you on our road to a championship.


Ben-great, great year. We wnet to all home games and trust me, it's a longdrive from Ohio.
