ARLINGTON, Texas -- Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told reporters today at Super Bowl Media Day that he is a different man than he was one year ago and that he believes he is a better teammate.

He stuck to a common refrain on the field at Cowboys Stadium, telling reporters he hoped to repair his image and become a role model while declining to discuss specifics about the past.

"It's not time to reflect because really it's about this game," he said.

He spoke with reporters for about one hour, answering nearly two dozen questions about his suspension and his personal growth. He answered several dozen more about the game, his place in history and even pop culture.

Despite the heightened media attention following a March 2010 incident involving a college student in Milledgeville, Ga., Roethlisberger said he tried to enjoy speaking with reporters because he does not know if or when he might be back to a Super Bowl.

"I'm taking it in stride," he said.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
