Roethlisberger (cont.)

Ben was appropriately contrite after his idiotic accident:

“I recognize that I have a responsibility to safeguard my health in the off-season so I can continue to lead our team effectively. I never meant any harm to others nor to break any laws. I was confident in my ability to ride a motorcycle and simply believed such an accident would not happen to me.

“If I ever ride again, it certainly will be with a helmet.”

He didn’t intend to break any laws, yeah, I guess, although the law was pretty clear that he was not licensed to ride without a helmet. Cowher had wise words on Ben’s stupidity:

“Sometimes with the lessons of life, you have to get knocked down before you get back up,” he said.

But I won’t be eating any Roethlis-burgers until I’m sure he’s ready to win another Super Bowl.
