Ben Roethlisberger will presumably meet with the media tomorrow for the first time since the end of the season.
There's much to discuss. Antonio Brown is gone and he kicked Ben on the way out the door. Le'Veon Bell piled on. Someone named Josh Harris accused Roethlisberger of fumbling on purpose. The national narrative surrounding the Steelers QB is that he's a bad teammate and leader.
If I were Ben, I'd want to lash out. He shouldn't do that.
We've all had a drunk guy bother us at a bar or a sporting event. There would be nothing better in the world than to knock that guy on his ass, right? What's to gain? It's just a moment to blow off steam. Nothing good can come from an altercation.
Nothing good can come from Ben going scorched earth tomorrow. If he lashes out at Bell and Brown, then those who ripped him in the past will rip him again for saying too much. Bell and Brown will respond on twitter.
Mike Tomlin has said that he wants the Steelers to talk less. As good as it may feel for Ben to lash out in the moment, he should listen to Mike Tomlin's advice.
