The other day former Steelers coach Bill Cowher said that he felt Ben Roethlisberger was growing up and maturing. Most know that for some reason former Steelers QB Terry Bradshaw had some harsh comments about Ben, but it sounded like it Cowher doesn’t share those same feelings.
Wednesday after practice Roethlisberger said he had no issues with Cowher’s comments, and that he was actually flattered about the words his former and first NFL coach said about him.
“Any time a Hall of Fame coach kind of gives that fatherly advice, it’s an honor that he sees you in that light,” Roethlisberger said. “I think it’s a good thing.”
There were rumors in the past that Cowher and Ben didn’t see eye to eye on things, and while that is probably true, both seem to have put anything they didn’t agree on aside, and now both are moving on, which is a good thing to see.
Cowher has the right to say what he feels about Roethlisberger, and it’s good to see the QB respond with a shrug of the shoulders and say that he thinks it’s a good thing that Cowher had nice things to say.
