Ben Roethlisberger is not a fan of Thursday Night Football, the event he'll star in this week when his Pittsburgh Steelers welcome the Tennessee Titans to town. 

During an interview Monday with 93.7 The Fan, a CBS Sports Radio station in Pittsburgh, Roethlisberger ripped the idea of Thursday games and called on the NFL to just get rid of them. 

"It's miserable, it's terrible, they need to get rid of this game I think," Roethlisberger said. "Just play on Mondays and Sundays. It's so tough on guys, you're beat up, you're banged up. It's a very violent, physical game we play."

Roethlisberger also added that the Titans probably feel the same way about playing on just four days of rest, noted CBS Sports

"Both teams are going through it, so I'm not just speaking on ours," Roethlisberger said. "I'm sure the Titans would say the same thing and everyone who's played on Thursday night would say the same thing."

The Steelers quarterback isn't the first player this season to call on the NFL to put an end to Thursday football. After the Seahawks beat the Cardinals in Week 10, Doug Baldwin said playing on Thursday should be "illegal."

Meanwhile, Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito had a similar reaction after a 34-21 loss to the Jets in Week 9. Following that game, Incognito said that Thursday games "suck" and it's "ridiculous" that the NFL puts them on the schedule. 

But there was one positive thing about TNF, according to Roethlisberger:
