Ben Roethlisberger Happy With The Win, Not Sweating The Negative Talk

GOOD JOB — Steelers’ kicker Chris Boswell is congratulated by Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri after a Sunday’s game-winning field goal in Indianapolis.- Associated Press

Especially these days. The athletes playing the game are all of the highest quality - veritable fine-tuned machines of physical mayhem - who run and hit faster and harder than ever before.

The Steelers host the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night this week.

The Steelers will be hosting the Titans on Thursday night this week, and let's just say that Big Ben isn't happy about the fact that he has to play in the game.

Then he goes on to describe what Thursday is like when a team has just played a game on Sunday and they're scheduled on TNF. Ben was asked about Tomlin pointing out the negatives from the game despite getting a win. You'd never hear this kind of rant, on day one of preparation no less, from Tom Brady about having to play on Thursday. It adds even more weight to the negotiations set to take place in advance of the National Football League and NFLPA's collective bargaining agreement expiring after the 2020 season.

During the Seahawks-Cardinals game, almost a dozen players went down with some sort of injury. A short turn around looks to be coming at a bad time for the Steelers after a number of players picked up injuries on Sunday. "It's one of those things, 'Hey guys, you know you did this wrong, this wrong, this wrong, this wrong, you won, good job".

Steelers beat Colts on last-second field goal
After the Steelers finally scored a touchdown thanks to JuJu Smith-Schuster, the extra point didn't go so well. They are off next week for the bye and will return to game action by hosting Tennessee on November 26th.

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours", Roethlisberger continued.

The Steelers play the Titans at Heinz Field this Thursday.

LeBeau served as the Steelers defensive coordinator for 13 seasons, spanning two different stints, and Roethlisberger has seen first-hand what he can do to an opposing quarterback. You're still dealing with bumps and bruises and things continue to build up throughout the season... "But we've got to do what the league says". It is already a highly risky sport, which has further the amount of backlash from players because of the lack of rest to better prepare to play in a game.

The downside for the players is that if the league were to drop "Thursday Night Football", that would eliminate the huge rights fee that comes with it and subsequently drive down the salary cap, meaning less money for the players.
