In the end, it was not a good night for Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers franchise quarterback, who had been though so much over the past 11 months, could have cemented his legacy with another Super Bowl win in Dallas.
Instead, it’s the two-time Super Bowl winner who was quiet and reserved after a stunning 31-25 loss to the Packers in which he threw two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown to make it 14-0 in the first quarter.
While there was plenty of blame to go around the black and gold locker room, Roethlisberger decided to put the weight of Super Bowl XLV on his shoulders.
“It was hard-fought. Obviously, it’s disappointing to lose,” Roethlsiberger said. “For me it’s even more disappointing because you feel like you let a lot of people down that stood up today to fight – people like Doug Legursky, Trai Essex, Ramon Foster, Antwaan Randel El. Personally, I feel like I let a lot of people down.
“I don’t put the blame on anybody but myself,” he said. “I feel like I let the city of Pittsburgh down, the fans, my coaches, my teammates. It’s not a good feeling.”
