Rebuilding isn’t in Ben Roethlisberger’s vocabulary

The Steelers hold a record of 3-6, and their chances of making the playoffs are just about gone. Nonetheless, Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t want to hear that the Steelers are in a rebuilding phase.

“I look at it as every year, every game that I play, we’re going to be the best we can be. I hate it when people say you’re rebuilding because to me that’s a slap in the face to the people that are out there playing,” Roethlisberger said on his radio on Tuesday.

“You think they’re sitting there telling themselves, ‘Oh, it’s okay, it’s a rebuilding year.’ No, they’re out there trying to bust their butt, and that includes me.”

The Steelers may be working hard, but it’s just not good enough. They aren’t a talented football team.
