The Pittsburgh Steelers are limping into their AFC Divisional Playoff against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, but former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick apparently thinks there’s some drama involved — at least when it comes to Ben Roethlisberger.
Billick joined 104.3 The Fan in Denver on Thursday, when he had a pretty explosive comment about Roethlisberger, who suffered a shoulder injury in Pittsburgh’s wild-card win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
“There’s no one tougher than Ben Roethlisberger by far in the NFL, but he’s a drama queen,” Billick said. “He’s gonna come out on that field. That arm’s gonna be limp. It’s going to look like he can’t even lift it. Then he’s going to crank off a 60-yard bomb to Martavis Bryant. Then he’ll carry it back into the huddle, holding it like it’s in a sling, and then he’ll crank off a 40-yarder to Antonio Brown.”
That of course won’t happen on Sunday because Brown is out with an injury of his own. Roethlisberger, meanwhile, is listed as questionable.
