Ben Roethlisberger seems to be tired of playing the nice guy in the media.
Big Ben and Antonio Brown had some great years together in Pittsburgh, but that relationship fell apart last season and steadily got worse as Brown told him on social media to “shut up already,” adding that they were “never friends.”
Big Ben listened.
Following the 30-point loss to the New England Patriots, Big Ben was asked about Brown’s decision to sign with New England and he didn’t have a care in the world.
“Whatever,” he said.

The score in the Sunday Night game would’ve been so much worse if Brown was actually able to suit up and play against his former team. Just maybe they will meet later in the postseason.
