Cris Carter: Big Ben 'ain’t the sharpest quarterback we ever had in the NFL'

The Hall of Fame wide receiver blasted Roethlisberger on national TV
By , 93.7 The Fan

NFL Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter apparently isn’t a fan of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

During the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football program on Thursday, Carter was asked who would have a better postgame press conference on Sunday, Roethlisberger or Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray?

Cart didn’t even need to think about it, going with Murray in “a landslide.”

“Ben makes excuses, Ben complains and then Ben brings that attention to himself so he’s going to be complaining about the offensive coordinator,” said Carter. “Ben ain’t the sharpest quarterback we ever had play in the NFL, for real.”

Carter says that Roethlisberger takes any chance he gets to complain whether it’s a new offensive coordinator or running back and that he especially likes it when he has some kind of injury and then plays well the next game.

“You talk about a guy that milks his injuries, he loves being on that injury report, ‘is he playing? Oh, he’s not going to play’,” said Carter.

While dunking on Roethlisberger has been happening for years in the national media, it seems to have quieted down in recent years, that is until now.

Carter played 16 seasons in the NFL with a total of 13,899 yards. He was inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013.
