…this post-game post, #HereWeGo:

“It was meant to be that I was gonna wear black and gold.” — Ben.

“God has blessed me with the ability to throw a football and has blessed me to play in the greatest city, in Pittsburgh, with the greatest fans and the greatest football team and players. It has just truly been a blessing. I’m so thankful to him for giving me this opportunity.” — Ben.

“I’m just so thankful. I hope that I’ve been able to pass the legacy of what it is to be a Steeler from Dan Rooney. We all miss him. Anyone that knew him misses him. Hopefully I can pass some of that on to some of the guys and the tradition of what it means to be a Steeler can be passed down… We’ve got some guys in there that will continue to do that.” — Ben.

β€œWe joke a lot about the Browns not drafting me, but I was meant to wear black and gold. Draft day, I wore a black suit with a gold tie.” — Ben.

“Just a bunch of guys that fought for each other, that fought their butts off and just competed. Wasn’t always pretty, but there were a lot of games that we found a way. Just like tonight, fought to the end. I’m so proud of this group of men and the way they fight for each other, for the black and gold, for our fans. It’s just been an honor to play with them.” — Ben.

“I gave Cam a big hug and told him it’s on him now. It’s his job to pass it down and keep teaching and holding guys to the Pittsburgh standard.” — Ben.

β€œIt’s tough. I’m proud to play with these guys.” — Ben.

I’m going to do everything that I can to be the best husband and father I can be and expand God’s Kingdom….as we move from one chapter to the next, it’s going to be different, but it’s going to be fun. It’s going to be a new challenge and I’m looking forward to it.” — Ben.

Just a very few of the thousands of ‘thank you’s’ for Big Ben after the game.
