This week’s subject:

Ben Roethlisberger is plucking a web page out of Tom Brady’s playbook — and his cookbook – as a way to serve up a Steelers’ Super Bowl run. Word is Roethlisberger is on a brand new lowering plan to extend Pittsburgh’s probabilities of success this season. Ben’s decided weight-reduction plan comes because the 18-year Steelers’ veteran QB is alleged to be extremely motivated to get into tiptop form to show all his carping critics fallacious. In reality, they’re saying Big Ben’s eating regimen is even stricter than the Father Time-reversing meals plan Tom Brady is on. And we all know the thin on Brady: The 43-year-old, fueled by his secret smoothies, went all the way down to Tampa Bay and captured his seventh Super Bowl ring. This single-handedly equaled the Steelers’ haul of coveted Lombardis. But earlier than Big Ben turns into the subsequent Richard Simmons, a few of this sounds as if Steelers’ followers are being fed a complete lot of hype. In reality, the aroma wafting from Roethlisberger’s kitchen smells much less like kale and extra just like the last-gasp determined makes an attempt of a past-his-prime, middle-age man making an attempt to place a few of the spilled sand again into the hourglass. Still, some in Pittsburgh are consuming up the information, relishing that Ben is staying hungry and drawing sustenance from the sizable chip on his shoulder. They insist it’s a miracle eating regimen akin to ‘Deal-A-Meal’ that may flip up the successful playing cards to gasoline a Steelers’ Super Bowl run. Others are waving away this unpalatable heaping pile of hype (there’s one other identify for it), insisting that nothing the 39-year-old Roethlisberger eats — or doesn’t eat — will stop Pittsburgh from ravenous for wins in 2021.
