Ben Roethlisberger is nothing if not consistent.
I don't doubt that his injured foot bothered him last season. I saw him on a daily basis limping through the locker room.
But now we have Roethlisberger telling the Tribune-Review that he may need surgery at some point to fix the foot problem.
Of course, this happens after a disappointing loss in the Super Bowl.
It's become a theme for Roethlisberger. Have a bad game on a big stage - which hasn't happened often – and blame it on an injury.
It's a broken toe - or is it? I had a fever of 105. I have broken ribs - unless we win.
Roethlisberger is an outstanding quarterback. But I wish he'd give the injury stuff a rest. So do his teammates. And the Steelers' doctors and trainers. And the coaching staff.
Sometimes, you just get beat. Sometimes the other team outplays you. It doesn't always have to be because of an injury.
