Ben Roethlisberger Finishes Remarkable Season With TD Pass in Pro Bowl

New, comments

Anybody watch the Pro-Bowl? I didn't. Never have, and probably never will. There are the occasional highlights from the game played on Hawaii's Big Island, like the crunching hit administered by former Redskins All-Pro safety Sean Taylor on the Bills' punter Brian Moorman, but usually it's a light-hearted scrimmage with plenty of botched trick plays and very little defense.


You just usually don't see guys at full speed in the Pro Bowl

Ben Roethlisberger, making his first apperance in the Pro Bowl, finished the game 5-of-9 for yards and a TD. They won't suddenly become bosom buddies, but TJ Houshmanzadeh was the recipient of Ben's lone TD pass, a 1 yarder in the 2nd quarter that gave the AFC a 24-7 lead. Roethlisberger also led the AFC in rushing yards. His 18 yard scramble was the second longest of the game (Game MVP Adrian Peterson had a 39 yard scamper).

Steelers LB James Harrison capped his fine season with 3 tackles in the 42-30 defeat of the AFC.

Anybody watch the game? Anything memorable besides the long-since-played-out melo-drama that I'm sure the telecast tried to force on the TO vs. Jeff Garcia situation?
