Roethlisberger Reiterates Wish To Stay With Steelers
Ben Roethlisberger again confirmed his desire to stay with the Pittsburgh Steelers while questions were raised about how much work he puts into preparing for games away from team headquarters.
"First off, how does anybody know what I'm doing at home when I'm watching film or I'm looking through my playbook?" Roethlisberger said on WDVE-FM. "Unless someone's got cameras set up in my house and they're spying on me, but then they'd see the truth that I am doing that stuff.
"It's so ridiculous. I get fired up because I don't like when people make up stuff about you, especially when you're so passionate about your team and your family and where I want to be."
A report from the NFL Network indicated that the Steelers are frustrated with Roethlisberger's unwillingness to change his style of play.
The report also said that Roethlisberger may ask the team to explore trading him.
"I want to stay. My family wants to stay. I want to finish my career here, I've always said that," Roethlisberger said. "I hope that's very clear to everybody. When someone is a source and they're unnamed, they have an agenda and that agenda is not winning football games and not helping this team. And whoever the agenda is coming from, they're not helping us. They're hurting us.
"There's no way it's coming from in the building because if it is, they would come talk to me. I think my resume speaks for itself on what I've done in the past -- winning championships and football games."
