    Roethlisberger hopes to return to Super Bowl

    Ben Roethlisberger was in Phoenix this week at the sight of Super Bowl XLII to take part in a Pro Bowl press conference, but he couldn’t help but talk about wanting to return to the big game.

    Roethlisberger led the Steelers to a win in Super Bowl XL and thinks that the team has the talent to get back.

    "I think we have a lot of the tools, and I think we have a lot of the players that are essential for us next year," said Roethlisberger. "I think there are some things that we all need to work on, myself included, and I think we'll be just fine because we have each other, and everybody we have in that room is talented and can get it done."

    Roethlisberger was asked about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the press conference and answered by referencing an interview he did last this season with Steelers Digest.

    "Somebody asked me this year, 'If you could be a Super Hero, which one would you be?'" said Roethlisberger. "I said, 'Tom Brady.'"

    Roethlisberger will be joined at the Pro Bowl by teammates guard Alan Faneca and linebacker James Harrison. Running back Willie Parker and safety Troy Polamalu will both miss the game because of injuries.

    While Roethlisberger won’t be staying in Phoenix for the Super Bowl, he will be a part of the hype as he is featured in an ad for the new season of “American Idol” that will air during the telecast.

    Roethlisberger spent about eight hours on the set but didn’t want to reveal too many details about the shoot.

    “It ties in football and American Idol so I will leave it at that,” said Roethlisberger.

    One of the scenes had Roethlisberger as a player in the locker room daydreaming about being a contestant on “American Idol” while the coach of the team was delivering a pep talk.

    “They did some different stuff,” he said. “You never know how it is going to end up turning out. I am in the locker room for a part of it. I am in the American Idol crowd for a part of it. It’s a little bit of jumping around so we’ll see how they kind of tie it together.”

    The Mel Blount Youth Home will hold its 10th Annual All-Star Celebrity Roast on Friday, April 4 at the Pittsburgh Hilton Hotel.

    ...No doubt Tee, plus I'm sure Ben would like to improve on his shiatty performance in the Super Bowl...lol He was great in the three play-off games before the Super Bowl but he was terrible in the big game.....We won so it doesn't matter but Ben does have pride so he is itching to have a huge game next time he makes it to the Super Bowl......

    Dude I hope he wants to get back 4-5 more times...lol

    You know he's got that in the back of his mind because he's a perfectionist with his craft, knowing that yeah we won and he made some big plays for us but overall he did not play well and would love to avenge that and really feel like he helped us in the big dance more than he did in XL.
