“Tom Brady? He is what he is. He’s good,”
The Pittsburgh Steelers have heard it all before but this year the trash talking from their next opponent, the New England Patriots, has gone to a new level of low after Patriots receiver Julian Edelmen questioned the way the Steelers franchise is run.
Pro Football Talk’s David Smith reported yesterday that Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger came to the defense of the franchise and it’s owners.

They’re family to us, and I’m sure if he talked to his owner, he would say the same thing about the Rooneys. Anybody in here in the football world or the regular world that [knows] the Rooneys knows what they stand for. It’s a blessing to call them a family.

Rookie cornerbacks Artie Burns and Sean Davis are fully aware that veteran QB Tom Brady will test them the entire game but, they have been tested every game thus far leading into the AFC Championship.

“Tom Brady? He is what he is. He’s good,” Burns concurred. “That’s what he does. “He’s a savvy vet. That’s what savvy vets do; they go after rookies. I’m prepared for it. It’s a challenge. I’ve just got to be ready.
