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??
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 ...
Ben Roethlisberger -- Doomed by Billy Joel?
