    Roethlisberger ready to become leader for Steelers

    PITTSBURGH -- After spending six seasons following leaders such as Jerome Bettis, James Farrior and Hines Ward, the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback believes it's time to become one himself.

    Ben Roethlisberger understands why his teammates stripped him of his captaincy this season: It's difficult to be a locker-room leader while serving a four-game suspension for misconduct.

    Roethlisberger is trying to repair his image - that of a self-absorbed star who can be rude to the public and players alike.

    He believes that with the Steelers at a critical juncture in the season it's demanded of him that he become more of a leader. And he knows that running the huddle won't be enough.

    Roethlisberger played well enough to take the Steelers to two Super Bowls. What he's never tried to be is a locker-room leader.

    Well, ****... I sure as hell hope so!!!

    Fortunately, I think he already is! The locker room is behind him, now he needs to execute in a manner that we know he can!
