Ben Roethlisberger Elevates His Play Despite Legal Distractions

Ben Roethlisberger has become the ultimate Quarterback and the quintessential element of the Pittsburgh Steelers' success.  He is having a career year in the midst of a legal scenario that would turn a normal man seeing normal to seeing red and incapable of concentration. 

One thing is clear: this legal scenario has not affected Ben's professional product.  His product of play is simply in the highest echelon.  He's among the leaders in almost every passing category.  Right now he's second in passing yards, to only the great Peyton Manning.  Couple that with the fact that he hasn't thrown the second most passes, but the fifth highest number of passes.  Second in yards but four others have thrown more passes reeks of success.  He is number one, completing seventy three point eight percent.  Yes, here it is in numerals because it's so beautiful: 73.8 percent!  He's averaging 294 yards passing per game and has eight touchdowns and five interceptions to this point.  Those look like numbers of Hall Of Fame passers to me.  Doing this with a monkey on his back like this "person's" accusations toward him makes the accomplishments most impressive.  I can hear Darth Vader now saying, "Impressive.....  Most impressive!"

It's mind boggling to me that a young man like him has what he has; the blessings of a king; for playing FOOTBALL!  Here I am a 38 year old man, an NFL Wannabe, and I'm talking about a guy ten years younger than me like he's the pinnacle of an example of manliness.  Isn't that what all "writers" do?  Let's face it: Ben's doing what all male (and probably some female) Steelers fans wish they could do; quarterback the Super Bowl Champions, the Pittsburgh Steelers; he is this generation's Terry Bradshaw, irrefutably! 

Chris Gossett will not comment about Ben Roethlisberger's accuser, except for this time, and when it's all said and done.  That's all she's ever going to be known as.  Ben's the victim here; not her.  No chance is she a victim.  There is no doubt in my mind that Ben is in the sights of someone who wants to railroad another person so they don't have to work another day in their life.  Bettis was another man of character and charisma.  Jerome was also involved in a liason with someone who decided to turn the tables.  What kind of man is he?  Again, another man who has no reason, absolutely no motive whatsoever for attacking someone.  'Like they would need to.  Enough said.  Puh-lease.  I wish this would go away like a Brett Favre retirement decision but STAY AWAY.
