Big Ben sees the end of the road is near.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Monday Night against the Cleveland Browns will likely be his final home regular-season game with the franchise.
“Looking at the bigger picture, I would say all signs are pointing to this could be it — regular season, that is,” Roethlisberger said Thursday. “I know we still have a chance to potentially get a playoff game there if things fall our way and we take care of business and things have to happen. In the grand scheme of things, in terms of regular seasons, signs are pointing that way that this could be it.”
BREAKING; Ben Roethlisberger said today that Monday night’s game against the Cleveland Browns is likely his final game at Heinz Field, his first public indication he will retire after the season.

Roethlisberger has played his entire 18-year career with the Steelers after being drafted 11th overall in the 2004 class.
“It’s 18 years, almost half my life I’ve given to this city and this team and these fans,” the 39-year-old quarterback said. “But the fun thing is, I know I still have it in the tank to go out there this week and next week and give it everything I have to do everything I can to get us into the postseason. That’s always the ultimate goal, to win us a Lombardi. That’s still my goal. We’re not out of this thing yet.”

Big Ben will most certainly go into the Hall.
He was one of those guys you wanted on your side, true grit and determination were some of his best attributes.
It would be nice to see him ride off into the sunset in his final season, but that’s probably not going to happen…
