 I really respect Ben Roethlisberger as a quarterback. I think he's tough. I like the way he moves around the pocket, not looking to run but rather doing it with his head up to make a throw. More quarterbacks need to do that.

He's a star now.

Having praised Roethlsiberger, it's time to rip him.

Please stop with all the drama, Ben.

The book on Roethlisberger is that he's a drama queen, and his recent revelation to Sports Illustrated writer Peter King that he played the Super Bowl with two broken ribs only intensifies his look-at-me style.

Why bother? What's the point? The game is over. All it does it put the spotlight back on Roethlisberger, with people saying how tough he must be. Somehow, I think Roethlisberger likes that.

The Steelers haven't confirmed the story and there are some Steelers players who think he's telling a tall tale.

If he did play with broken ribs, he's tough but why let it out? All it does is put the focus on him, and takes away from the team winning a Super Bowl.


Super Bowl star, drama queen.

They don't need to go together.


Quick hits

---Nice job by the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency last year. The two big signings were receiver Jerry Porter and cornerback Drayton Florence. They cut both of them Wednesday. Neither played very well, but it didn't help that the coaching staff thought both were problems inside the locker room. Those two landed $16.5 million in guaranteed money last year, which brings new meaning to taking the money and running. Porter had 11 catches -- $1 million a catch -- and Florence was nothing more than a nickel corner, and not very good at that.

---What do the Jets do at quarterback now that Brett Favre is gone? Decide if Kellen Clemens is the long-term answer or draft one. If they draft one, they need a veteran. How about Byron Leftwich? He would love the chance to start again.


---I keep hearing the Larry Johnson wants out of Kansas City. Who wants him? Is he worth anything? He's a crybaby who isn't nearly as good as he thinks. Johnson needs to shut up and play with the Chiefs. The same goes for Tony Gonzalez. You're at the tail end of your career, Tony. Live with it. You're not worth trading for either.

---In all the early draft talks I've had with scouts, the one name that consistently comes up getting a lot of praise is Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry. He might be the surest thing of all the players in the draft.

I think it's time for Prisco to just shut his whiney little bitchy mouth. Noone really cares what you have to say. Really bro, they dont. Its just so funny that you have to come up with the most lame stories to write about to try and get attention on you. Maybe You are the"DRAMA QUEEN" of sports writing. I could think of a lot other things to talk about other then this. Besides, maybe Ben didnt want it out so the Cardinals would know and try to take a few extra shots at his ribs. Bottom line is the guy is a STUD. Plays with all his injuries becuz the guy is a leader and now one of the NFL's best QB's. Easily a top 3 QB behind Brady and Manning. Although I think I'd put him in front of Manning becuz he has more SB title then him....It's time for you, Prisco, to find a new prefession becuz your articles are only good for a laugh !!!!

If what you say is true: "Super Bowl star, drama queen. They don't need to go together." Then it defeats the logic of your previous statement. If you can not be a Super Bowl star and a drama queen, and there is no denying that Roethlisberger is a superbowl star, then he can not be a 'drama queen', according to your own statement they don't go together.


He said it didn't need to go together, not that it couldn't. Way to attempt to be smart.

Prisco likes to make people mad.

Boy oh boy does Prisco likes to stir the pot.  I would like for him to now go and list all the other times Big Ben has been a "drama queen".  He made it sound like Big Ben is always this way, when I see a maturing leader who had the motorcycle accident a few years ago, which served as a wake up call not a "diva move".  Big Ben has become a leader in the Steelers locker room and plays with maturity way beyond his age.  This article is such a joke, if Brett Favre made that same admition he would be praised as some sort of hero.  But when Ben does it he wants all eyes on him.

Prisco's rediculous rants

I'm sure you're taking what Ben said out of context and making something out of nothing but hey ... that's what you guys do. You should knock off the pettiness as it only makes yourself look bad.

He hit it on the nose and was way off in his comments about the chiefs....LJ is a loser. What team would give anything for him. All he does is byatch. But Tony....what? He could be huge for any team....a leader and a stud at his position....way off Pete.

I'm not touching the Big Ben drama, but I like the thought of New York getting Leftwich. As a Chiefs fan, I keep saying my prayers every night that Michael Crabtree is theirs. I want them to develop the guys at QB they have. The size and arm strength of Thigpen is mind numbing, and if surrounded with weapons, he could light it up. He vaulted up fantasy boards last year, his rookie season out of Coastal Carolina, and the ridiculous talk of Sanchez being taken with that pick made no sense. If Larry Johnson's dad could keep his son calm, Larry Jonnson would be a pro bowl running back at KC in 2009. Gonzalez is pure talent, always has been, and leaving would cause a huge hole to fill.

TONY G. NOT WORTH TRADING FOR!!! What are u on...crack?  He was easily the best TE in football last year!  I wouldnt give a first-rounder for him...but a conditional 4th..why not?  I would hope to have a talent with leadership like him on my team!
