Ben Roethlisberger made the decision to call it quits after backing into the playoffs.  Some might say he retired a season or two too late.  Big Ben isn't one of them.

In fact Roethlisberger might have been forced into retirement by the Steelers, which according to Gerry Dulac of the Post-Gazette, has led to some bad blood between him and the franchise.

Billy Bob: Is there bad blood between the Steelers and Big Ben with how his career ended. Was he ready to retire or was it a Troy type situation where he was forced into it?

Gerry Dulac: I would say it's very very safe to assume that.

Big Ben is crazy if he thinks he should still be playing.  He never moved well, but last season he took being immobile to new heights.  That and his arm isn't close to what it used to be.

The Steelers are much better off with Mitchell Trubisky or Kenny Pickett under center and that's saying a lot.
