I'm troubled by this. What did Ben expect? That a coach who's been here as long as Cowher had, had had (lol@ the 3 hads) as much success as Cowher had, and had been to a SB before would move over for his rookie QB's ego? Cowher doesn't treat players differently, so it seems to me Ben expected it to be otherwise. From what we hear, Ben was also lazy. And he obviously didn't take Cowher's advice to wear his damn helmet, and look what happened? Ben, take your ego, shove it up your ***, and start doing the work you have to do to been an elite QB and get this team another championship. I mean, I'm a big Roethlisberger supporter, and I think he can be a truly great QB, but I don't like what I hear with this whole thing.
And see, the difference between this and Faneca, is that Faneca NEEDS A NEW CONTRACT. He has one year left. It's about damn time to start talking to him about an extension, whether it's likely or not. Faneca isn't skipping camp because he's all pissy about Tomlin, he's skipping camp because the Steelers aren't offering him an extension. Who wouldn't be pissed about that? Ben however, was a rookie who seemingly came in here with a huge ego and then got pissed when Cowher didn't care, or at least that's what it sounds like.
