Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger considered abandoning the No. 7 jersey he's worn his entire career as part of a makeover he's undergone since his April suspension.

Roethlisberger told KDKA-TV in Cleveland he thought about changing his uniform number, but quickly dismissed the idea:

"That got brought up, and I thought about it for about five seconds and said, 'No way.' Because I wear it because that's me, that's who I am. One of the main reasons I wear it is because of John Elway, one of my idols. He's still one of my idols.

"You know what? I can make that change. On the football field, I love who I am on the football field and I think most fans would agree. I think they like that. That's not the person who needs to change, it's the person off the field and I don't wear a number off the field. I'm just Ben. And so that's what's most important is just changing Ben."

Roethlisberger spoke with two Pittsburgh TV stations this week and said apologized for what he called "dumb" and "immature" behavior. He said he wants to change his lifestyle and become as good a person off the field as he has been a quarterback on the field.

Change or not he is our QB. I don't think he will though because I know how much he looks up to Elway and an off season incident won't change the number on his back.

Even better! Maybe he wants to pave his own path. Inspiration is great and all, but some people like to pave their own path. If that's how Ben feels, that's cool

BR can talk all day, but it doesn't prove anything. actions speak louder than words.

perhaps he could mature by posting porn on a steelers' family forum. :lol:

Ben will always be no.7 that is what he started with and hopefully he will end his career with that number.

Personally...I would prefer that the are posted seperatly...then merged later...so that "new" posts can be found easier. Just an idea.

ben should be the first person to ever hace initials instead of numbers. His new Jersey initials should be D.T.F.

He doesn't need to change his number, just his attitude and it looks like he is well on his way there.

Ben will always be no.7 that is what he started with and hopefully he will end his career with that number of Super Bowl rings. There, I fixed it for ya.
