Ben Roethlisberger Basically Just Admitted That He Sucks & Might Be Washed Up

Posted October 09, 2017

The back to back interceptions returned for touchdowns by linebacker Telvin Smith and safety Barry Church essentially won the game all by themselves. The 3-2 team's other captain, apart from the veteran quarterback, Heyward added, "Seven's done too much not to".

Wow, that's a good dive from Jalen Ramsey. After the game, Roethlisberger was a quite defensive when talking about his performance.

His 37.8 passer rating was his worst since he had a 37.8 against Buffalo on December 11 of last season.

The deficit forced the Steelers to throw more, but it's nearly as if an offense waiting to experience a passing-game explosion like old times grabbed for glory Sunday, to spectacular failure. The Jaguars run defense ranks 30th however, which Todd Haley and Le'Veon Bell will take full advantage of.

One pass. And it was an incompletion. Pence took to Twitter to alert everyone who follows him that he was leaving the game between the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts because players knelt during the national anthem.

And we saw precision from Newton, who threw a dime to a streaking Benjamin down the left sideline for a 31-yard score that proved to be the game-winner. Fournette expanded his role in the offense, catching four passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. He has a career passer rating of 79.7 and has consistently struggled with mechanical issues throughout his tenure.

When the 35-year-old quarterback was asked what he meant by that comment, he said, "I'm not playing well enough". "I've had bad games before, bad stretches". I've had bad stretches. Bryant has spent a large portion of the last two months trying to find the rhythm that made him one of the best downfield threats in the league in 2014 and 2015.

The Jaguars (3-2) ran for 231 yards against the Steelers (3-2), though 90 of those came on Leonard Fournette's touchdown with less than two minutes to play. The rookie ran for 181 yards and two touchdowns in the 30-9 road win. Through five games, Fournette has 466 rushing yards and five trips to the end zone.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the talented, but inconsistent, Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. It's unlikely Roethlisberger is actually thinks he "doesn't have it anymore"; he's never seemed the introspective sort, after all.

"He was impressive just by what he was able to do all day long", Bortles said of Fournette.

Now, you can make the case a tipped ball could go anywhere, but how can a 6-foot-5 quarterback like Roethlisberger get that kind of pass deflected? He also is the only National Football League player with at least five sacks in each of past nine seasons.

The Buccaneers will also be looking at kicker Nick Folk, who missed three field goals, as a reason they came up short.

It won't be easy, but the Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to stay ideal at home while they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. They scratched and clawed their way back into the game late in the 4th, but a Chandler Catanzaro FG crushed their efforts in the OT period as time almost expired. Marrone has matched last year's win total in just five games. At the end of the year, we'll look at it and see where it's at.

The Jaguars have allowed just 147 passing yards per game this season. While stressing he wasn't going to panic, Roethlisberger knows he needs to play better going forward if the Steelers want to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders. In three weeks, two losses, he's completed 73 passes on 124 attempts, a 58.9 percent rate, with two touchdown throws and six interceptions. "It's as simple as that".
