On his weekly radio show with 93.7 The Fan Roethlisberger explained that he’d much rather have another championship than an MVP award. When it was pointed out how he’s never won an MVP before he reminded us that he’d rather have another championship anyway.
"“No, but I’ve been lucky enough to win two championships and that’s all that matters to me. I’ll take a championship over an MVP every time.” – Ben Roethlisberger"
Why not both?
Ross Cockrell has been a shutdown cornerback so far this season. You read that right. You know who’s not surprised by that statement? Mike Tomlin’s not surprised. He called it the whole time. Well, not exactly called it but he says that Cockrell’s preparation each week is the reason for his progress.
"“I am not surprised by it. If you watch Ross work on a day-to-day basis you are not surprised by the progress. He has that level of commitment to preparation and growing as a player. I appreciate his approach to work and his day-to-day demeanor and the work that he puts in even more than I do the contributions he has given us thus far in stadiums and they have been solid.” – Mike Tomlin"
I had no doubts. Knew it all along.
We’re still talking about Antonio Brown’s cleats. We’ve been talking about Antonio Brown’s cleats or twerks or anything other than his yards and touchdowns for far too much so far this season. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler points out that Tomlin calls the issue irrelevant.
Tomlin shot down any questions about Brown’s cleats and the hot takes are still in full force about whether or not AB is a distraction. Those saying Brown is being a distraction aren’t seeing the irony in the fact that they’re creating the distraction by discussing it.
