Ben Roethlisberger was Better Without AB According To These Two Major Stat Categories

Updated: May 29, 2020

Antonio Brown is a confirmed psychopath. It should come as no surprise when he quickly switches between apologizing to anyone that will listen, and lashing out at the NFL through strings of incomprehensible tweets. We’re at the point where he’s best ignored, but who are we kidding? The guy is a sports blogger’s dream come true.

Brown’s latest tirade targeted Ben Roethlisberger, but not Ben as we know him today. AB’s claim is that he somehow made fat Ben from the mid 2000’s better on the stat sheet. So we did the math just to make sure things checked out. Note: AB actually played 9 seasons with Ben, but we didn’t include the 2010 season because he had 16 catches for 130 yards and no TD’s.

Pittsburgh is a city of champions, so the ultimate stat line is Super Bowls of which Ben has won two without the help of AB. However, in almost every other category Brown pumps the numbers up, and we concede at least that much. But there’s one stat that the main stream sports media missed, and Jagoff Sports thinks it’s possibly the most important detail.

After the 2005 season, Roethlisberger had one (1) motorcycle accident survived (MAS). Some say during the pre-Antonio Brown era, Roethlisberger was on track to potentially have 3 or 4 motorcycle accidents survived which would place him far ahead as the record holder in that particular category. However, since the arrival of Brown in the 2010 season, Roethlisberger hasn’t managed to add another motorcycle accident survival to his stat line.

Both Brown and Ben are watching this season from the sidelines, and the window of opportunity for Ben to add to his Super Bowl and motorcycle accident survival totals might be closing fast. Only time will tell.
