PFT: Teammates Wouldn't go to Bat for Roethlisberger With Goodell

The NFL is king. Feel free to pay your respects.

Ben Roethlisberger may win his third Super Bowl with the Steelers on Sunday — and perhaps his first with teammates who actually like him.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated writes in today’s Monday Morning Quarterback column that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told him he talked to two dozen Steelers while he was deciding how to punish Roethlisberger at the beginning of this season, and to a man, Roethlisberger’s teammates declined to say anything supportive of their quarterback.

“Not one, not a single player, went to his defense,” Goodell told King. “It wasn’t personal in a sense, but all kinds of stories like, 'He won’t sign my jersey.’ ”

I don't get this part:

Aren't they the same players referenced from the beginning of the season?

Also, why would the commissioner be talking to his teammates? Seems weird.

I think what they're saying is he's changed. When the commish interviewed teammates to find out more about him, they found him to be an unliked ass.

Now, having changed his behavior not only externally, but internally with his teammates, he is better liked, and thus it would be the first SuperBowl win with teammates that like him, as they didn't before.
