This just in: Ben Roethlisberger's favorite artist is none other than Maxim's hottest girl (which we think is bogus by the way) for 2010, Katy Perry! We don't have any real confirmation on that, but based on his season, he was hot then cold, in then out. On one hand, at one point during the year Ben put together a nice winning streak of five straight games for the Steelers. Not many other teams can lay claim to that long of a streak during the year. On the other hand, he also gathered up a losing streak of five straight games for his crew as well.
But that's not all. He threw for over 350 yards in a game four different times, with two of them going for over 400 yards, and the last one going for 503 yards (the high for the NFL in 2009). Still, Ben also threw for under 225 yards on 5 separate occasions as well. Overall, he ended up with one of the better fantasy seasons for QBs in the league, but you never knew what you were going to get from week to week, thus making him a risky start every time you turned to him. It was, however, his best fantasy season points-wise to date, though off the field, it might have been his worst…
