Big Ben...Tomorrow,ugh!

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's not what he had in mind, but Steelers rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will play a leading role Sunday in the Super Bowl -- in a musical commercial for the NFL Network.

The one-minute commercial, which was to be shot yesterday in Key West, Fla., opens with Roethlisberger sitting in the tropics with his duffel bag "looking forlorn and downcast," said Leigh Steinberg, the quarterback's agent. Joe Montana then appears on camera to console him.

The commercial features other NFL stars around the league, all disappointed they failed to reach the Super Bowl this year, singing "Tomorrow" from the Broadway musical "Annie."

The script, according to Steinberg, called for the end of the ad to show Roethlisberger and Montana walking down the beach together.

In the meantime, the only quarterback to tame both Super Bowl teams this season won't pick a winner, but he predicted a close game.

"I don't think it's going to be as lopsided as people think," Roethlisberger said.

The New England Patriots are seven-point favorites to defend successfully their championship when they play the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night. Roethlisberger and the Steelers beat both teams in Heinz Field on consecutive Sundays at midseason, knocking each from the unbeaten ranks.

"I think it's going to be a defensive game," said Roethlisberger, whose personal 14-0 record as a starter ended when the Patriots beat the Steelers in the AFC championship game.

"Both teams have great defenses -- and great offenses as well -- but I think a lot of people are counting the Eagles out too soon. I don't think you need to do that.

I heard an interview with him on the radio yesterday (I think it was Rome) he seemed pretty cool but also kind of bummed about losing to the Pats. He was really taking up to get Plax resigned.

I wonder if Big Ben has gotten a big head? He does a Chunky soup ad and his season starts to tank. Did he pay enough attention to his QBing? Maybe it came too soon, too easy for him. Hey Rothlesberger, this is your future speaking: Get your head out of your A**, Guttpuppy is counting on you.

Yeah if you didnt know him and plax live in the same complex. Well, thats plax's home here, he lives in florida really. He said how much hes helped him through it, and Im sure any QB would want his deep man resigned.

I agree with him about the game though

It's not like I couldn't blame him. I've always thought that were I in the postition that these athletes are in: fame, money, chicks, etc I would self destruct in about one good weekend.

Trouble is now, I think Ben will be mediocre at best next yr, I think it will take the whole of next yr to get back to where he was a few months ago. Believe me I hate to say it, but Ben needs time to recover.... mentally.
