Ben Roethlisberger On Tom Brady This Season: 'There's No Way He's Enjoying This'


Ben Roethlisberger admitted on his podcast this week that it was weird seeing Tom Brady in Pittsburgh as he sat in his suite.

In addition, the former Steelers' quarterback also made claims that Brady "looked like he didn't want to be out there" in Tampa Bay's 20-18 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. 

"Tom is the greatest," Roethlisberger said on his podcast this week. "The Super Bowl rings show it...[But] it looked like he didn't want to be out there. Maybe it was the pressure and he was getting hit and whatever was going on."

As mentioned in a CBS Sports article released this morning, Roethlisberger continued, explaining that he thinks Brady doesn't look like he's having a good time when he's out on the field. 

"There's no way he's enjoying this," Roethlisberger thought during Sunday's game. "No way. ... It just didn't look fun for him. When a defense gets after you, sometimes, your anger and your disgust for things happen because the other team is affecting you," mentioned Roethlisberger. "Not because it's you. But yeah, it looked like a different Tom."

Brady already addressed a sideline outburst involving the quarterback and his offensive line earlier this week, but many are left wondering if cracks are starting to infiltrate Brady's so-called armor. 

Brady and the Bucs will look to get back on track in Week 7 against Carolina.
