Ben Roethlisberger Calls Out Tom Brady: ‘He Didn’t Want To Be Out There’ Against Steelers

Big Ben is doing his thing as the new media.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger saw his former team beat Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-18 in a huge upset to halt a four-game losing streak. But there was something else about Ben Roethlisberger took away from the game. During his most recent edition of his “Footbahlin with Ben Roethlisberger” podcast, the former Steelers Quarterback believes that Tom Brady looked like he “didn’t” even want to be there on Sunday.


“It didn’t look like he wanted to be out there. I mean, maybe it was the pressure and he was getting hit…whatever what was going on…,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m like ‘There’s no way he’s enjoying this. No way.’”

Roethlisberger’s comments begin at the 24:12 mark:

A video of Tom yelling at his offensive linemen in the second quarter quickly went viral, and many feel his attending Robert Kraft’s wedding contributed to his struggles.

Brady ended up throwing 25 completions on 40 pass attempts for 243 yards and a touchdown. Though Brady was sacked just seven times through the first five games of the season, he was sacked twice on the day by a banged-up Pittsburgh defense. After losing just four games all of last season, the Tampa Bay Bucs have already lost three through their first six games.

Tom and the Bucs will have a chance to get back above .500 when they visit the 1-5 Carolina Panthers this Sunday.
