I read thsi and thought no way. Why would anyone assume that because he's had early success that it would be problematic? This is appears to be a case of "looking too hard" to find something wrong. The guy is good and they need to accept that for what he is. Clearly he's a cut above the others and he's proven that on the field. I think the last line explains the report as good as any:
Sounds to me like someone or some folks are a little jealous of what he's accomplished. Is there something more to this story than meets the eye? Are they sending Ben a message about how he's handles himself so far?Steelers | Some are concerned about Roethlisberger's early success

Bill Williamson, of the Denver Post, reports Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger's early success has some concerned that it might affect his work ethic. Many scouts believe he has several aspects of his game to improve before he becomes an elite quarterback, including accuracy and consistency. He is the youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl and he raised some eyebrows when he turned down a Pro Bowl invite to go to the Grammy Awards.
