      S. Michael DeHart aka WVUmounties8 What??? The last time he made a SB was 2010,they miss the playoffs 4x,and Ben loss to Tebow,the Jags, the Patriots in the playoffs...1 5000 yard season,over 30 TD's maybe 3x in his career...He ain't elite either

      For now, but I'm old enough to remember this happening before.Then a couple of years later we became the steel curtain and one for the thumb.Never think the Steelers are down and out,we come back stronger.

        Ben Roethisberger is done. I don’t understand why you think a regressing Lil Ben is the answer for a young team. It’s time for Mason Rudolph and his young receivers to spark a change in Pittsburgh. Big Ben is not the answer. I believe Rudolph is.

            I wish Big Ben the best but the ball 🏈 don’t lie 🙊 all the things that happened and what’s he’s done ✅ on and off the field is catching 🎣 up to him

              Sorry guys, Big Ben won a SB in his second year. He’s so under rated. 2 rings, 3 SB’s he’s a first ballot HOF. Can’t be replaced. His size, arm, grit, intelligence, toughness, decision making, crazy play making abilities. He’s a very rare talent. Only a few guys, Elway, Young, McNair really can compare athletically and intellectually to his total package.
              Sorely missed and underrated!
              Oh and I’m a lifelong Broncos fan. So much respect for BB. An fing beast!

                  This offseason would have been the perfect time to sweep out Mike Tomlin, his staff, their outdated schemes and their overly player-friendly management approach along with Brown and Bell. The Steelers could then have drafted a quarterback of the future, let Roethlisberger play out the last year of his contract instead of extending him, and prepared to embark on a new era.

                      Ben won't be back, this is his excuse to retire like he's been wanting for years. Now he can sit at home and get fatter than he already is.

                          Mason Rudolph is hungry, Ben is happy being #2 in the AFC.

                                I just thought of bizarre would it be if Eli and Big Ben’s careers ended on the same week just as they started on the same day. Crazy

                                    I don’t blame Mason if we lose to the 49ers this week. Historically speaking, Steelers never do good against west coast teams

                                              I'm not sure the Steelers collapse. The younger players like Tomlin and dont know that they are supposed to be bad.
                                              All the old malcontents James Harrison Leveon Bell Antonio Brown and Ben who had never been the best leader are gone.
                                              I think they are going to be Ok.

                                                        Coming from a Steelers fan I’ll bet anyone on here that Mason Rudolph takes over and we don’t look back. Ben isn’t the same, I don’t want to here about how many passing yards he had. Dude threw 700 passes last year u should at least get 5k with AB and JuJu

I'm not a big fan but I do enjoy them because they have been the team to beat for years. Well that's the nature of the sport. All may not be lost. It's time for these guys to step it up.

                                                                                          I remember the Steelers before Ben Roethlisberger. Tommy Maddox and Kordell Stewart. Does that make me old? I'm 32.

                                                                                          • California Dreaming

                                                                                            I am no Steelers fan but I’ve followed Big Ben’s career over the years. I think he’s actually underrated. I’ve been writing for the past few months that his time-to-throw (TT) number, according to the NFL’s next gen stats, is really terrific. I think Ben is at 2.55 and surprisingly, Carr is about the same. But that number is the average number of seconds that a QB, on pass plays, takes between the snap and the throw. “Perfect” is 2.5. Ben is also exceedingly accurate for his size. But I do think that Pittsburgh has used him too long as a crutch. The Steelers have needed to prepare for Ben’s retirement and they keep ignoring that it will eventually happen. If I’m the Steelers GM I would’ve been looking for the next QB the last couple years.

But the Steelers and Rapelessburger are done. Patriots win the Super Bowl and Trump 2024
