The full KDKA-TV interview of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Anthony Nelson Jersey , coincidentally (or not) timed to land one night before Roethsliberger is due to face reporters for the first time this offseason, has landed. Among other things, Roethlisberger contends that he still considers a former teammate who has criticized Roethlisberger mercilessly in recent months to be a friend.Roethlisberger explained to Bob Pompeani of KDKA-TV that the quarterback has tried on multiple occasions to contact Antonio Brown.“Haven’t heard back,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m sure he’s getting busy with his season, and getting ready as I am with the guys we have here. I really am looking forward to reconnecting with him, talking. Because like I said he’s a good friend of mine. I still call him a good friend. I hope that we can reconnect and I hope that our friendship can continue to grow.”The friendship has done anything but grow in 2019; Brown has systematically obliterated it. And the tipping point apparently came when Roethlisberger called Brown out on a weekly radio show after Pittsburgh’s loss to the Broncos.“It’s a fine line to walk sometimes of giving information out, giving kind of some cool things for the fans to be a part of, and maybe saying too much,” Roethlisberger said of his in-season appearances on 93.7 The Fan. “And I know that I took some heat and deservedly so for some of the comments that I’ve made on that show, especially towards him. And I genuinely feel bad about that and I’m sorry. Did I go too far after that Denver game? Probably.”Roethlisberger arguably went a little too far in trying to explain away his past criticism of Brown, whom Roethlisberger said in late November should have “flattened” his route on a play that resulted in a game-deciding end-zone interception.“I can see where that comment was perceived to be negative towards A.B. but it wasn’t meant that way,” Roethlisberger said. “It was more — just like everything during the season, it’s a compliment to A.B. because he’s doubled every single play. . . . . It’s still so amazing Jeffery Simmons Jersey , is that he was able to do it through all the adversity of double- and triple-teams. And so it was more meant that I should have gone to JuJu [Smith-Schuster] because he was single covered.”Roethlisberger also was asked about the personal impact of widespread criticism, provoked by his good friend, of the quarterback’s leadership skills.“They were hurtful,” Roethlisberger said of the critical remarks, “and it was hurtful to myself. It was hurtful to my family. I always want to get better. I always strive to be the best that I can be. And last year we weren’t good enough. We lost six games, we didn’t make the playoffs. So I need to, as a leader of that football team, because leadership is ultimately about winning football games, and I didn’t a good enough job of being a leader because we didn’t make the playoffs.”A little more leadership may be needed this year, from Roethlisberger and others. That “two face” tweet posted by Brown after excerpts from the Roethlisberger interview emerged on Monday afternoon was “liked” by Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds, who has since “un-liked” Brown’s tweet but also has “liked” tweets criticizing Edmunds for “liking” Brown’s tweet. CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Although C.J. Beathard knew he should slide, the San Francisco 49ers desperately needed a first down in the fourth quarter of a two-point game.So Beathard kept running toward Casey Hayward Nate Davis Jersey , and the Los Angeles Chargers’ Pro Bowl cornerback knocked the wind clean out of the quarterback with a devastating shoulder hit.“Especially in a situation like that, on third down when you’re inches away from converting, it could change the game if we get that first,” Beathard said. “If I could do it again, I’d do the same thing.”Beathard didn’t get that first down. After he caught his breath, the Niners still dropped to 1-3 with a 29-27 loss Sunday.But after the first game of Beathard’s second stint as San Francisco’s accidental starting quarterback, his teammates and coaches were enthusiastically confident in his ability to fill in splendidly for Jimmy Garoppolo this season.“He gave us a chance to win today,” Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said. “He played very tough and made some big plays, especially in situations with guys going in and out. He handled adversity well, and a little chaos with some of the injuries.”Beathard went 23 of 37 for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Chargers, capably connecting on a series of big throws — none bigger than an 82-yard touchdown pass to tight end George Kittle late in the third quarter.He also showcased the resilience and toughness of a third-round draft pick trying to seize the chance he’s been given by Garoppolo’s season-ending knee injury .“C.J. has got more grit than anybody that I know,” said Kittle, Beathard’s college teammate at Iowa. “He’s got a severe dad bod. He can run longer than anybody I’ve ever known Tytus Howard Jersey , which is kind of crazy, and he can take any hit. So it’s pretty cool. Don’t know how he does it.”The 49ers lost both of Beathard’s starting offensive tackles to injuries at StubHub Center. Joe Staley didn’t return, while Mike McGlinchey came back in less-than-ideal shape. The Chargers were credited with eight quarterback hits and one sack of Beathard, along with plenty of regular pressure, particularly in the second half.Beathard took it all and came back for more.“Ain’t no room for being sweet, (and) there ain’t nothing sweet about C.J.,” 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster said. “So that’s why we have faith and we believe in C.J. It was really not surprising, but it was surprising because I could see it in his eyes every time he came on the sideline, like, ‘Defense, let’s go. We’ve got your back. We ride with y’all.’ Just him saying that means a lot to me and the defense, because you know where his head is at.”Beathard dropped to 1-5 as an NFL starter with this loss, but his teammates loved his moxie. Hayward’s big hit sent Beathard to the sideline — once he could stand up again — but he returned for the 49ers’ final two offensive series.“I knew I was OK Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey ,” Beathard said dismissively. “I just couldn’t breathe. I got my air knocked out pretty bad, and I was able to come back eventually. I felt fine.”If Beathard had actually got that first down, the 49ers would have had to give the next snap to Nick Mullens, who was promoted last week from the practice squad. Shanahan said the Niners will look at signing another backup quarterback this week.Los Angeles essentially ended the game by forcing Beathard’s second interception with 2:31 to play.Derwin James’ blitz sent the ball out of Beathard’s hands, and it hit center Weston Richburg before the Bolts’ Isaac Rochell grabbed it for an interception.Shanahan said he wished Beathard “would have saw that and got rid of it,” but Beathard said he was trying to get the ball away before the Chargers’ disruptive rookie safety got to him. It was another failed gamble, but the 49ers will accept it if Beathard continues to grow from these painful experiences.“He is going to be a great quarterback in this league,” Niners running back Matt Breida said. “He is a tough competitor, as you can see. He’ll take the ball and run with it, take big hits, and get up and get back in the game. It’s going to be hard to get C.J. out of the game.”
