    College - 2010 = Young, Wild, and Free) Acted immature while making costly mistakes along the way.

    2011 - Present = Settled down, got married, went back to college to finish his degree, becoming more mature as he grew up.

    On an extra note, even though some athletes may struggle with immaturity and responsibility early in their careers, I'm glad that Ben changed has himself for the better.

    Eh, not too much a prima donna. I think he falls short of that definition. Not a self promoter.

    The ultimate non prima donna would be Eli Manning who was of the same draft class and is retiring. We did pretty good picking Ben.

    That's why I never had trouble rooting for the Steelers even after the worst of the accusations against him. Every team has players with questionable character. There are quite a few bad guys in the NFL and some of them are players we think of as good guys. They just cover it up well in public.

    My issue was with the OP, definitively stating that he is a different guy. I'm not so sure of that. I hope it's true.

    Wouldn't it be nice if any of us really knew the truth about what kind of guy he is?

    Like I said, wouldn't it be nice if we "really" knew. We can all form opinions but that's all they are is opinions.

    Ben won 2 rings during the wild and free stage of his life and zero during the married and mature part of his life.

    All I know is the Steelers have paid him North of 200 million for 2 superbowls
    Not nearly enough production for this kind of money.

    I’m thinking there are fans from 25+ other teams message boards who would debate this with you.

    Although, they aren’t nearly as knowledgeable as you and I. :drinks:
