I have said that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger may be getting up there in age..but he isn’t done just yet. Finally..someone who knows what they are talking about pertaining to the National Football League happens to agree with me.
Formers Steelers defensive end and Hall of Famer, Mean’ Joe Greene spoke with CBS Sports Radio’s, Zach Gelb about Big Ben in Pittsburgh. Giving his high praise and endorsement for future Hall of Famer himself.
“I like Ben. I’ve been liking him for a long time,” Greene said. “What we saw Thursday night, when Ben started to make the calls on his own when he was going no huddle, you could see that he could put the ball where he wanted to put it, even though he didn’t have much time to do it.”
Something else I have mentioned numerous times, when Roethlisberger is at the helm and makes the calls he is virtually unstoppable. Especially when it comes down to the 4th quarter. And all things considered, he hasn’t had all that bad of a season thus far.
Ben has completed 297 of 455 passes for 3,066 yards and 19 touchdowns with only 7 interceptions. The only downfall is that he has been sacked 30 times. But Greene believes if the Steelers can keep him up right, they can win.
“If we can get some people around him to block not only for the pass, but for the run, Ben can still be the quarterback that we can win with,” Greene said. “Ben knows that, and a lot of people know that, but when things are not going well, hey, everyone wants to get on the bandwagon and say, ‘well, it’s time for him to go.’ All those people don’t know crap about football.”
My sentiments exactly! All of these Big Ben Haters know nothing about football. They are just non-athletic, Madden Playing..couch quarterbacks who never played a snap in their life. Unlike myself who has experienced the game of football, I will believe in the experts over the scrubs. #HereWeGo
