Barrett Brooks Takes a Shot at Large Benjamin

Former Steeler Barrett Brooks was on SportsTalk 950 in Philadelphia this week and had a few interesting comments about one Ben Roethlisberger.

After much laughing and joking about Ben's motorcycle accident and the fact that he went without a helmet, Brooks was asked about his opinion of Roethlisberger:

"All Ben has to do is throw the ball up in the air. He has great receivers to make him look good. I mean, I know he can read a book but I don't know about a defense!"

Then when asked about Ben's Super Bowl performance, he said, "He was pissed because he didn't get the MVP, he wanted the Cadi."

He then laughed at the host's assertion that Ben still wouldn't be smart enough to wear a helmet.

If anyone's qualified to talk about motorcycle safety, it's Brooks, who was arrested in 2006 and charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, driving at an unsafe speed and other traffic violations while on a motorcycle.

I can't see Ben believing he deserved the MVP after his performance in the Super Bowl. Brooks is just a no-name trying to get his name on espn and feel relevant.

Like Barrett Brooks this radio station is a joke. No one in Philly listens to it. So I am guessing about three people heard the comments.

Who the f*** is Barrett Brooks? He was pretty much a blocking dummy during his time with the Steelers.
