Ben Roethlisberger on @937theFan won’t commit that he will play next season. Implies he’s open to retirement.

This fuckin guy. What an absolute joke he’s become. I’ve never seen an athlete thrive on drama more than Big Ben. He lives drama, and he breathes it. He needs it to sustain life. Every game he’s in a walking boot, or has something “injured.” I don’t buy any of it. It’s all an act to play the hero role. Every game for Ben Roethlisberger is Jordan’s flu game.
And now that there’s no delusional injury he’s talking up, he’s got to find a way to get people talking about how much they need him. Pretend early retirement is the perfect way. That’ll get the people worked up.
