“Ben is not going to put that video out there if he doesn’t feel he’s 100% ready to go.”

All it took was 38 seconds to inject life into Steeler Nation when Ben Roethlisberger released a video showing him firing passes to teammates this past week at a Pittsburgh high school and so I spoke with someone who knows just how impressive that was to see.

He spent four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and quickly became a fan favorite for his hard-hitting style and now, in retirement, Arthur Moats is giving his “behind the scenes” insight of what it was like to play for such a storied organization.

I had the guts to “cross the moats” to get his thoughts on Big Ben’s return, who he would want to be the backup QB, an intriguing AFC North, Antonio Brown’s future and where he got his “Da Body” nickname. Enjoy.

Arthur Moats doesn’t hold back in our conversation

But Moats is more than just a football player. In fact, he’s been nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award twice over his nine-year NFL career. He details how to grow from within in his book, “Theory of Life: A guide to becoming a person of impact and inspiration.”

I think in these times right now, any bit of inspiration is needed. Whether it comes in a book or a 38 second video.
