    Ben talks; Evaluation for Reed

    It wasn't exactly a state of the union address, but Ben Roethlisberger finally fielded a couple - literally - questions from the media today.

    There was nothing earth shattering to come out of the event. To summarize: He's learned his lesson. He's re-evaluated everything he's been doing. He's looking forward to playing football.

    [HIGH-LIGHT][/HIGH-LIGHT] As the league did with Roethlisberger, placekicker was also ordered to undergo an evaluation by the NFL after his latest run-in with the law last season.

    Reed has already completed the evaluation, which he only revealed to reporters today.

    So we're learning a little more about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's thought process when it comes to off-field troubles.

    [HIGH-LIGHT][/HIGH-LIGHT] Congratulations go out to Greg Alan of 4for4.com, the best fantasy football web site going.

    Alan is among the inagrual class for the Fantasy Football Hall of Fame.

    If you haven't taken a peek at 4for4.com, you should. Alan has developed some groundbreaking software that pretty accurately predicts how a player will perform each week and throughout a season.

    Again, I've found it to be the best fantasy football site out there - and I'm not just saying that because I'm a contributor on the site. I've used his projections myself for a number of years.

    What's up

    By all accounts, Ben Roethlisberger looked good in his first day back with the Steelers Tuesday. The quarterback even dropped some weight. It's nice to see he wasn't sitting around eating bon bons while banned from the team practice facility.

    It's a positive sign for Roethlisberger because it shows that he's listening to somebody.

    Roethlisberger's biggest problem in the past has been his propensity to buck authority.

    It caused something of a rift between Roethlisberger and Bill Cowher and Roethlisberger and Ken Whisenhunt, who both wanted to keep their thumb, so to speak, on the young QB.

    Mike Tomlin and, by extension, Bruce Arians gave the QB a little more leeway and Roethlisberger ran with it, his ego apparently growing by the day.

    But Roethlisberger's run-in with the law in Georgia and subsequent suspension by the league may prove to be the wake-up call the QB needed.
