The Clock Is Ticking On Big Ben

What’s the difference between Ben Roethlisberger and Pacman Jones?  Their weapon of choice . . .

The gloc versus the . . . you can fill in the blank.

Listen, I am not saying Big Ben sexually assaulted either of his accusers, however I am saying that his situation is beginning to resemble that of Titan turned Cowboy turned NFL reject, Adam “Pacman” Jones.  In a way.  Eventhough Pacman wasn’t accused of pulling the trigger, he had difficulty staying away from people and places that brought him nothing but trouble.  He made terrible choices.

Eventhough Big Ben hasn’t been charged with pulling the ahem, trigger . . . he is having trouble with the ladies.  You would think after the first rape accusation, in which he is still facing a civil case in Nevada, he wouldn’t put himself in the situation to be accused again.  Especially with college kids!

That is the part that bothers me the most.  Roethlisberger is quickly becoming THAT OLD GUY in the college bars that won’t let go of his youth.  Hello McFly – You are almost 30 years old!  You look ridiculous trying to play frat boy college QB.  Dressed for the part, I might add:

Why isn’t Big Ben going to mature, high end nightclubs?  It’s not like he’s searching for drink specials because he can’t afford bottle service.  Can’t he handle the WOMEN he’d find there?  Does he feel more in control and powerful with naive, young, star struck college girls?  An interesting psychobabble-type conversation . . .  

Today, Roethlisberger made a move that proved one of  two things.  In hiring the high-powered Atlanta attorney that had murder charges against Ray Lewis dropped 10 years ago, Ed Garland, Big Ben is saying, A) He is innocent and wants to nip this in the bud and FAST or B) He is guilty and wants to be sure NOT to get charged.  

Regardless of the outcome of these latest accusations, will the Steelers put up with Big Ben’s shenanigans?

The Rooney family has to be reeling.  Their face of the franchise is being dragged through the mud – rightfully so – and taking the proud prganization along for the ride.  How long until Dan Rooney decides Roethlisberger’s reputation is tarnishing Pittsburgh’s image?  Will Big Ben learn the hard way that he is not bigger than the Steelers?

We’ll have to wait and see . . .
