Ben Roethlisberger -- Doomed by Billy Joel?

2/7/2011 2:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After Ben Roethlisberger's crappy performance last night ... everyone's been asking the same question -- should he have stayed in Tuesday night and watched game film instead of boozing past midnight??

Ben Roethlisberger Video

As TMZ first reported -- Big Ben dropped $1,000 at a Dallas area piano bar ... drinking rum and Diet Cokes with some teammates past midnight ... while karaoking along with the Billy Joel classic "Piano Man."

So we gotta ask ...

Honestly, this had to the stupidest poll ever...does anyone really think it took him more than 4 days to recover from whatever alcohol he had on Tuesday night?

Hey Sono, do you really think Tuesday was the only night he was boozing? If you can't be a professional and be sober for one freaking week and hunker down and study so you can perfom to the best of your ability for the biggest game of your carreer then you don't deserve to win.. that goes for the rest of them who were our partying and celebrating before game day.. IDIOTS!! .. and Im a Steelers fan..

lol i was on tmz live askin if it was gonna make a difference. and i believe it did, its not like he was hung over or anything, the point of this is that he could have spent that time watchin tape of the packers defense. hmm maybe avoided a few interceptions... all and all im glad he lost, after his antics last summer i dont think he even had the right to play this season. the nfl should have made a point to show that what he did was WRONG and not let his slack ass off

Do you have eyes?    

He is still an arrogant pig and he deserved to lose. Aaron Rodgers was prepared and humble. I am from Pittsburgh, but even I can see the better team won. Ben thought he had it in the bag. What an a**clown.

Wow, this is only the third time that TMZ has rehashed this story. Perhaps Mendenhall should hold onto the ball and his line protect him from his arm getting hit while throwing. The other pic was all him. That said this night out had nothing to do with last night. TMZ getting hard up early in the week, shame shame we all know your name Harvey.

I've had enough hangovers to know that if you drink enough on any particular day or evening, it can take several days before you really feel like yourself again. The real physical hangover sickness usually only lasts the next day, but the sluggishness and brain fog can drag on for days after. Especially as you start getting older. He was crazy for boozing it up so close to the Big Game.
