07:37 PM ET 04.21 | There was once a time when the Pittsburgh Steelers were a Super Bowl favorite every year. That isn't the case anymore, not after going 8-8 and losing Mike Wallace, James Harrison and Rashard Mendenhall. Now there are questions about the future of the Steelers, but that's just fine with Ben Roethlisberger, who is taking to the underdog role. "I'm fine with people saying that we're going to be terrible and, 'Let's overlook them,' because that means our opponents are doing the same thing," the quarterback told KDKA-FM. "I like that. I like being the hunter."

As long as underdog pays the same, Ben's good!

Wasn't he the "hunter" in the bathroom that night? He's used to that role.

Ben, the underdog is not a "hunter." You're more like a scavenger - let's say a hyena, at best.

Glad he likes the perception that his team is terrible. It will make getting used to it easier for him.
