Later Monday evening, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ franchise quarterback will finally respond to the criticism that has been circling the NFL since Antonio Brown’s dramatic outbreak. Ben Roethlisberger sat down with KDKA’s Bob Pompeani which will air at 6 o’clock. Not only will Big Ben discuss the apparent criticism, but he will also address his leadership philosophy as well as the new contract extension.

Roethlisberger spoke publicly for the first time about Brown leaving Pittsburgh after reports of tension between the two, not only in the locker room but within their personal lives. One of the very popular incidents that seemed to fuel this fire was when Roethlisberger publicly criticized Brown’s route-running. Brown later said that the criticism of him fueled his desire to be traded from the Steelers.

“I took some heat and deservedly so for some of the comments on that show and especially towards him,” Roethlisberger said, via Andrew Fillipponi of 93.7 The Fan. “I genuinely feel bad about that and I’m sorry. Did I go too far after that Denver game? Probably…”

Roethlisberger went on to say that his social media is out of his hands, which could be a reason for some of the silence.

“That’s the thing about media and social media,” Roethlisberger continued. “As soon as you say ‘Sorry’ it only goes so far. You can’t take it back. And I wish I could because if that’s what ruined our friendship and relationship, I truly, genuinely sorry about that.”

Despite the apology from Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown doesn’t seem like he has accepted it and wants to move on. After the Steelers quarterback publicly apologized, Brown did what he does best.

Took his opinions to Twitter:

What happened between the two will never be fully understood by the public and there will always be two sides of the story. But there has to be a time where the Twitter drama will be no more and they can both move on.

    It just seems like today its more about “Me” and not about the team or the fans but no matter what we have lost to egos and selfish ambitions. The Pittsburgh Steelers the great black and yellow is magical it changes only the great to the greatest as soon as you put on that black and yellow it transforme the spirt of the athletic were all the history and Championship all the blood sweet that was battled out on the field by those great ones that would do whatever it take to not let that black and yellow suffer defeat and to always recieve the respect of a true warrior and champ demands by not his tweets or social media but only by his actions that he fights and leads by example out on the field for the fans owners, city, former players and traditions that is only a gift that only few ever experienced in one career and no matter what colors you try to put on black and gray or whatever you will not be the same for only the colors of the black and yellow and steelernation had a whole lot to do with it!!! Good luck Brown and Bell only 10 years from now your only will be remembered in black and yellow when you was at your greatest! Champs no need to talk they just show up ever time! Steelernation for life

    The Steelers will survive without AB. Ben tried,Antonio responded the way we now accept him. Again, the black and gold will be fine.
