The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - SPORTS -

Pitts­burgh Steel­ers quar­ter­back Ben Roeth­lis­berger is the lat­est high-pro­file player to rip Thurs­day night foot­ball games. Roeth­lis­berger said play­ers need a full week to re­cover, de­scrib­ing Thurs­day games as “mis­er­able” and “ter­ri­ble.”The Steel­ers host the Ti­tans this Thurs­day. Roeth­lis­berger joins a list of play­ers who have voiced their dis­like for the games, in­clud­ing Seat­tle Sea­hawks re­ceiver Doug Bald­win, who made sim­i­lar com­ments last week af­ter sev­eral of his team­mates, in­clud­ing star de­fen­sive back Richard Sher­man, were in­jured.
