It seems to be a question with more than one answer.
What’s next for Pittsburgh after Big Ben?
Hercules King1 day agoI know right? Ironically, Ben played some of the best ball I’ve ever seen in that playoff game against the Browns. Unfortunately, the contest got way out of hand too early for it to matter. Roethlisberger can still do it. The 49ers or the Washington Football Team would gladly take him.Read moreREPLY
Highlighted replyDIVISIONINCISION2 hours ago@Hercules King Settle down, Hercules. That game was over long before Ben padded his stats in garbage time. It makes no difference playing your best ball when you’re down 28 points.REPLY
Hercules King1 hour ago@DIVISIONINCISION garbage time doesn’t last for three and a half quarters. Ben Roethlisberger threw for over 500 yards passing. The Cleveland Browns had to score three or four more touchdowns after the first quarter in order to win. If not the Steelers come back and beat them. It was simply an oddity as to how it all went down with the Browns going up so high so early. Everybody thinks of the game as a classic blow out. I thought that the game was quite entertaining. Chase Claypool looked like Randy Moss getting over the top of that Cleveland defense. I think Roethlisberger hit him for two touchdowns at least. There were two other instances where Claypool was going to walk in the endzone but Roethlisberger missed him. That’s 14 points that didn’t get on the board right there.Show lessREPLY
Steeler fans aren’t over the moon about carrying an aging Ben Roethlisberger into next season
Hercules King23 hours ago@Jestivius Jovial_Emperor what was Tampa Bay’s record after the first six or seven games? It wasn’t what people thought it was going to be. And I remember the media saying that Brady looked a bit old and out of sync. As an experienced quarterback of course he figured that out. I believe that Ben Roethlisberger is capable of the same type of season. Especially if he’s just going to get to stand back there and throw the way Tom Brady did. Did you watch that Super Bowl? I don’t think anybody in a red and white uniform touched him the entire game.Read moreREPLY
Hercules King22 hours ago@alan landsman there is no such thing as an easy schedule in the NFL. Every team in the league is loaded with the type of talent to beat anyone else. The difference from winners and losers seem to be preparation, chemistry and momentum. Steelers lost their momentum towards the end of the season. The Press started to call them Paper Tigers. I believe it got into their heads.Read moreREPLY
Hercules King4 hours ago@Milan Milanov Last year is all you have. It’s a guide to determine what next year might be. You wanna fire a quarterback than won you 12 games just to fill out the roster with cheaper players who ain’t done nothin?Read moreREPLY
Milan Milanov3 hours ago@Hercules King Not at this stage of his career. Every new season at this point is a season too many. It took the Saints 3 years to figure out the obvious – that Brees was done 3 years ago. And please stop comparing Big Ben to Brady. What Brady is doing is for the history books, he is an outlier, not the norm.Read moreREPLY
Hercules King1 hour ago@Milan Milanov okay, well you let Big Ben walk. We’ll take him in Houston along with that Christian McCaffrey package for Deshaun Watson. That’ll be something fun to watch for a couple of years until the Texans organization can get its feet back up under it. In the meantime Steeler fans can get themselves all set for the Mason Rudolph era.Show lessREPLY
