Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger is doing all the right things when it comes to getting his rookies to rally around him. And that is giving them the confidence as well as the praise they need to pump them up. Something Big Ben has been accomplishing since the beginning of OTA’s last week.
“I think this offense is going to be completely different,” Roethlisberger said, via Steelers.com’s Missi Matthews. “You’re going to see nothing that you’ve seen in the past … it’s new and taking some extra studying, but it’s a fun new challenge.”
“Something you’ve never seen in the past”..is a very strong comment to make, especially since the Steelers have had some high powered offenses in the past. But Ben went on to praise individual players as well.
Regardless of how it turned out for Dwayne Haskins with the Washington Football Team..or what these “so-called” NFL experts have to say about him, I will listen and believe Roethlisberger 10 times out of 10 over them all.
Keep in mind that the future Hall of Fame quarterback is not one to pass out compliments all Willy Nilly. But he did offer some high praise for new Steelers quarterback Haskins..along with rookie running back, Najee Harris.
“He doesn’t seem lost. It’s not too big for him. His head’s not spinning,” said Roethlisberger. “He’s asking questions, which is good, but he’s out there, and he’s playing fast.”
But like us as fans, Ben is also looking forward to Harris actually hitting the field in game mode.
“I think the most exciting part about Najee that we are all going to be excited to see is once he gets it and it clicks, and he goes full speed, man, it is going to be something to see.”
The 39 year old Roethlisberger is the epitome of a class act quarterback, getting his proverbial backup and his star running back ready to do work. And hopefully bring home that elusive 7th Super Bowl Championship. #HereWeGo
