    As Emmanuel Sanders this week backed up his previous comments that Peyton Manning is a better leader than Ben Roethlisberger, there was a reaction … from Ben Roethlisberger.

    “He’s going to say whatever he can about the quarterback he is with,” Roethlisberger said in a way that reflected his partial understanding of why Sanders made those comments.

    “I was more disappointed he didn’t reach out to me. I know he told some other guys: ‘You know I love Ben, I didn’t mean it like that.’ I wish he would have reached out to me and just say that and I would have been fine with it.”

    Instead of reaching out to Roethlisberger about his initial comments, Sanders told the NFL Network this week he stands by what he said.

    “I have not one regret. If I said it, then I meant it,” Sanders told the NFL Network via Pro Football Talk.

    “It wasn’t meant as disrespect for anyone. I’ve got so much love for everybody over there in Pittsburgh, and they know it — they know me. I didn’t mean any harm.”

    true. but a lot of that is not just on him. the whole team seems to take a step back. either that or the other team just raises their game against him.
