Broncos CB Aqib Talib Accuses Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Of Faking Shoulder Injury

The Denver Broncos eliminated the Pittsburgh Steelers from the playoffs Sunday 23-16 and after the game, Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib accused Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of faking his right shoulder injury.

“Ben was healthy as hell. He didn’t fool anybody,” Talib said after the game.

Being as Roethlisberger missed most of the fourth quarter of Saturday’s AFC Wild Card game with a shoulder injury after being sacked by linebacker Vontaze Burfict, I think it’s safe to say he wasn’t faking anything. Roethlisberger ended the week listed as questionable after suffering a sprain AC joint in his right shoulder. He only practiced fully one time leading up to the game and that was on Friday

After Sunday’s game, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that Roethlisberger’s injury wasn’t an issue during the contest and that the two never discussed it after the game was underway.

Talib is just a sore winner and he’s not faking that.

    What a moron

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Man just let it go! YALL won!

  • Yea he faked it so much he came out of a close playoff game then came back in for the final drive but told his OC he can’t throw deep…

  • SixburghFan

    Based on his own past, Talib wouldnt know the first thing about playing with an injury. I am not surprised he thinks this way.

  • Daniel

    He’s jst hating cus Ben threw for over 300 AGAIN. only this time without the best Antonio brown


    Maybe he is Pac Man’s half brother.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Ben should take it as a compliment

  • Steel City Slim

    Uh the X rays say different, idiot.

  • Zach Bolen

    When I read that this idiot said that I told my father nearly the same thing that “There is another Pacman dumb ass injury comment”.

  • francesco

    I guess Talib is not a real competitor. And he probably wished AB was playing! NOT!

  • SfSteeler

    how about your two non called defensive pass interference penaties in the end zone BRA in this game….?

  • pittfan

    You can fake shoulder injuries you can fake head injuries but you can’t fix stupid

  • Artie

    bet he wishes Tom was as beat up.

  • Edo M

    this coming from a guy who tried to gouge another players eyes out…what a class guy. sore winner for sure….what a jerk

  • gdeuce

    he did’t try, he actually did poke the colts TE in the eye

  • Big White

    They are both right. The injury was significant prior to Monday when treated. The Steelers kept everything tight to the vest during the week as they should have and let the cortisone do its job.

  • Jason Vancil

    Aqib Talib scored 2 on the Wonderlic. Just putting that out there.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Shame on A. Talib if he thought BB was just gonna come out and hand the ball off. Once Ben was confimed as the starter if Talib expected him to limp on the field with his arm hanging then Shame on him. Hello Talib the Steelers allowed him to start for a reason if you can’t figure out why they started him then that’s on you!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Wonder who’s the next Steeler to else get accused of faking an injury?

  • francesco

    Mike Tomlin…brain injury!

  • Zurich1012

    F_ _ k him ! they won! I accuse him of being a fake ass corner back because he got away with a huge pass interference call!! It is what it is. The Steelers lost but Aqib shut the Hell up!!

  • Ray Leslie

    Talib, is the greatest football player since Joe Namath

  • westcoasteeler

    But he wasn’t fooled.

  • The Notorious TOM

    You won though. Why is this necessary?

  • RickM

    Kind of senseless for winners to whine. Then again, this guy isn’t a winner off the football field.

  • David Paul

    There is not a sports league on the planet full of more uneducated, classless jackasses as the National Football League. It’s going to be unwatchable at some point.

  • Bobbybulivia

    No fly zone becomes no class zone.

  • Dave D

    That’s probably as true as his assertion that the Colts Dwayne Allen threw his eyes into Talib’s fingers earlier this season. Moron…

  • justafanlikeyou

    Yeah Talib and the ref faked watching your coverage on Bryant in the endzone. Otherwise PI would have been called.

  • Lizard72

    This is the same Talib that “did not poke anyone in the eye”….

  • 20Stoney

    I said it last week about Pacman…..some of these guys are lucky to be blessed with athletic ability, because they sure aren’t going anywhere with their brains.

  • Steel PAul

    When are we going to stop giving defensive backs the microphone.

    Have we not learned that their ego will never be satiated??

  • joed32

    Faking, no way. Exaggerating a bit, probably so.

  • Steve Johnson

    This guy is the classic case of an NFL Player with a lot of money, yet uneducated and stupid.

  • Rusted Out

    Precisely! As if that first throw from Ben wasn’t an obvious statement. Got to be half a tard to go with conspiracy theories that could cost the team their season.

  • ObiRynDenobi

    Talib just proved that even a class act like the Denver Broncos can have a punk on their roster too!

  • Michael Kreiser

    But yet that great defense couldn’t stop him, lol now wait tablet new he wasn’t hurt ? we need better coaching someone talk
