What can we, mere mortals, even begin to write about a performance like Ben Roethlisberger's last night against Cleveland?  A man of many talents, let's let his own words do the talking (quotes taken from the PG, the Steelers website, and; all pictures from Yahoo).  Only two of these are fake.

10. Ben as Leader of Men

"I just didn't want to let the guys down," Roethlisberger said. "We're in a tight race right now."

9. Ben as The Great Communicator
 Tomlin: "The doctor said you’re good to go; how you feel?"
 Roethlisberger: "OK."
 Tomlin: "You want to go?"
 Roethlisberger: "Absolutely."
 Tomlin: "All right, let's do it."
