Ben Roethliseberger has grown quite a thick beard during the Steelers' playoff run. But this much is clear: Win or lose, the beard comes off after Sunday's game against the Packers.
"This comes off Sunday no matter what," Roethliseberger said. "Every once in a while, we decide to do something superstitious It’s the playoff beard thing."
The beard has taken on quite a life of its own.
"The beard has its own Twitter page, Myspace page, it's got its own Facebook page, and it's got its own T-shirt," Roethliseberger said.
