Ben Roethlisberger is not afraid of taking the big hits, but he doesn't need to get shoved after the play as well.
During the second quarter of Sunday's matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, the Browns got away with some unnecessary roughness on Roethlisberger.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback was slow to get up after a heavy hit by Browns' defender Danny Shelton. With a referee less than a foot away, Shelton gives Big Ben an unnecessary shove and puts him back on the ground.
Something tells me if this were Tom Brady a flag would have been thrown.
