Welcome to the official fan site of Ben Roethlisberger2020-03-02T16:35:30+00:00

Hey! It’s another DIFFERENT Fan Friday!!

It started with a video message from Big Ben and Christian musician, Micah Tyler on September 24th:

I am so honored to team up with ‘Big Ben’ Roethlisberger to tackle a great cause!

When Ben wore my ‘Different’ shirt to training camp a few weeks ago and it caused so much attention, we knew we should take the opportunity to shine a light on something way bigger than a T-shirt. Honored to partner with Light of Life Rescue Mission, who has been on the ground making a huge difference in the lives of homeless citizens in Pittsburgh for a years.

For every shirt we sell, two meals are being donated to Light of Life Rescue Mission! — Micah Tyler.

And then we posted a DIFFERENT FAN FRIDAY on October 9th to show off those awesome shirts.

But Steelers Nation isn’t done yet! They’re still doing their part to tackle this great cause with Ben & Micah and helping us spread the word…

Building a bond with Ben

From Teresa Varley’s “Bye Week Blog“:

Last week quarterback Ben Roethlisberger dished out a huge compliment to rookie tight end Pat Freiermuth, something that holds a lot of water when it comes from an 18-year veteran.

“I think he’s doing a really good job,” said Roethlisberger. “I probably need to be better getting him involved more because I trust him, he’s in the right spot. It’s on me to get him more involved. I need to start making a more conscious effort to do that.”

On Sunday, Freiermuth was targeted seven times, and proved Roethlisberger right with seven catches for 58 yards.

So is Freiermuth becoming Roethlisberger’s security blanket?

“I hope so,” said Freiermuth with a smile. “It was an awesome feeling getting the targets I did this past weekend, but I’ve got to continue to improve and continue to be there for him when he needs me.”

Freiermuth and Roethlisberger are continually building their relationship and trust, something that happens on the field as well as off with conversations and advice.

“Sometimes it’s just understanding what he thinks that we should do on a route, or what we see and just having that back and forth conversations,” said Freiermuth. “Understanding where we’re going to be in the route game and even the run game.

“It’s very valuable having a quarterback that’s been in the league as long as he has. Learning from a future Hall of Famer and understanding what he sees in the game and how I can implement that into my game.

“We’re building that relationship and it’s an everyday thing. He’s had us over his house a couple times just to get used to us and all that kind of stuff. It’s been awesome.”

Freiermuth also said he has learned just observing some of the things Roethlisberger does on a day-to-day basis.

“It’s how to prepare,” said Freiermuth. “He probably watches the most film on the team, just trying to feel out how the defense does things, trying to stop our offense and kind of understanding what it takes to prepare to go into a game and be successful.”

Week 6: Seahawks 20, Steelers 23

‘Notable Quotes’ from Ben’s post-game presser:

It’s really tough. Going through it with Ryan [Shazier], brought back a lot of memories. It is hard to re-focus after something like that. Wish him nothing but the best, our prayers are going to him and his family. Prayers was going on while on the field, but we’re going to continue to pray for him. — Ben, on the injury to Seahawks DE Darrell Taylor.

We don’t think about losing. I’m just disappointed [that] we didn’t finish it in regulation when we had a chance, and hate that my kids had to stay up so late with school tomorrow. — Ben AKA Dad.

I was told that even though the ball was going forward, my arm was going backwards. So I had to ask Josh Dobbs, who is an aerospace engineer how that works…he said it’s not possible. But I can’t get fined for that because I’m just telling you what Dobbs said! (smiles) — Ben, on the explanation he was given on the “fumble” ruling.

You can watch Ben’s press conference here.

Ben Stats:

#7 was 29 of 40 for 229 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. His QB rating was 94.7.

He has now thrown 403 career regular-season TDs – sixth quarterback in NFL history to surpass 400 career regular-season passing TDs with one franchise. (Michael Bertsch/Steelers)
