Photo Story: The Ballad of ‘Bathroom Ben’ and Friends

[Editor’s note: This was originally posted on January 18th, before the AFC and NFC Championship games. With Ben Roethlisberger now set to take on Aaron Rodgers in the Super Bowl, it seemed worthy of bringing back to the homepage for a few chuckles.]


Yesterday, I wondered aloud which of the four quarterbacks remaining in the NFL playoffs I most wanted to see win the Super Bowl. I am not much of a fan of any of the four remaining QBs – Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler, Mark Sanchez, or Ben Roethlisberger – and ultimately I chose Sanchez as the lesser of four evils.

If I had to pick my least favorite of the four, I think the choice would be a little big easier: Roethlisberger. While he clearly has the best resume of all four, and is an exciting quarterback to watch, there are also plenty of pretty obvious and notorious reasons to dislike him. If you need a quick refresher of the litany of allegations that have plagued Big Ben, click here.

In our latest MSF photo story, we take a look at how Ben is dealing with the aftermath of the allegations, his four-game suspension, and his recent engagement, now that he and the Steelers are in the AFC Championship Game.

The story begins by looking at it all through the eyes of Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler, two young quarterbacks who are in the midst of their best seasons, yet who have surprisingly come under fire recently.
