With the Pittsburgh Steelers gearing up for the 2019 season, teammates have started to finally stick up for the team’s quarterback.
I’m not sure what it was which sparked change, but maybe it was just one of those ‘enough is enough’ situations where teammates of Ben Roethlisberer had reached their tipping point of the Ben bashing.
Fans wondered where the current, and former, players were in supporting Ben Roethlisberger, while so many spoke out openly against him. Wait no longer…as several members of the Steelers took to social media in support of No. 7.
Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, Ryan Clark and even Emmanuel Sanders have all had their chance to speak their minds. A chance to show how bad a teammate, and leader, they feel/felt Roethlisberger was/is for the black-and-gold.
Now you get to see the other side of the proverbial coin…
Take a look at some of what was said via social media:
I was so blessed to enter the league and play with a Hall of Fame QB as a 20-year old. Ben has taught me so much, he’s a true Leader and I can’t wait to rock with my guy this season. pic.twitter.com/Atei8eDiZC

Did the same to me! Did it all season thru the good & bad.. Ridiculous that this is even a topic of conversation about a HOF QB. Leader without a doubt. https://t.co/htWR44VXLG
