After Pittsburgh suffered a shocking 20-13 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday, some Steelers fans may believe the “Bieber Curse” is legitimate after the pop star had joined the team for an exclusive worship service the night before the game.
However, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger assures the singer is not to blame for the loss, and that many outsiders have attended their Saturday night services.
“That’s not a big deal at all,” Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan, via ESPN.com’s Scott Brown. “For instance [former Steelers wide receiver] Plaxico Burress stopped by. Obviously he’s family, but people stop by all of the time and say, ‘Hi,’ and we’ve had other athletes, actors, celebrities, stuff like that stop by. It’s not a big deal at all.”
Roethlisberger—who was out at dinner during the bible study—isn’t putting any stock into the singer’s appearance on Saturday, but Steelers fans have to be hoping that Bieber finds a different bandwagon to jump on.
Come on Ben, don’t be naiive. There is only one reason that the Jets won that game on Sunday, and it wasn’t because we were a better team. It was the curse of the Beiber.
I won’t blame you if you just came out and blamed the Beibs for the loss Sunday, it”s not an excuse, it’s a legitimate concern. You have to make sure Beiber never steps foot near the team again. You guys are a good team, one of the best in the AFC, but when you start associating with people like Beiber, you can kiss your season bye bye. He’s death to teams and everybody knows it. Don’t flatter yourself Ben, the Jets aren’t a good football team. Justin Beiber’s gotsa go.
