ARLINGTON (AP) – Ben Roethlisberger was shooting video of Cowboys Stadium while getting into position for Super Bowl media day.

Just before going to his assigned podium, the Steelers quarterback turned the camera toward bushy-faced defender Brett Keisel sitting nearby. “The beard,” Keisel said, referring to the quarterback’s facial hair. “Looking good.”

Roethlisberger is sporting a full beard, but still has nothing on the Grizzly Adams-like growth Keisel has.
“I have to blame my teammates, really. When I started this thing, I said that as long as we are winning games I will let it grow,” Keisel said. “So it is really their fault. The beard has taken on a whole new life.”
