Quote of the Day:
“It’s all about team – offense, defense and special teams. It’s about how close this locker room is. Maybe a better word, team is a sub-word, family is better. You start with the coaches, owners, and the Rooney family. We are family. That is the better word.” — Ben, on the success of this year’s team.
You can catch Ben on ESPN‘s Mike & Mike Show at 7:45 a.m. on Thursday, January 6th! He will be a phone-in guest!
