Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a rough first year under offensive coordinator Todd Haley and it looks as if it may get a little rougher before better. The loss of receiver Mike Wallace was a huge blow to the passing game, one of the premier speed demons in the NFL took his talent to South Florida. Roethlisberger now has to adjust further, not having the deep threat that loosens up defenses. It’s safe to say Roethlisberger will miss his favorite target. “Mike is way more,” Roethlisberger said, via Sean Logan of the Finsider. “It’s to Mike’s credit. Mike is really focused on becoming a better receiver. So he’s focused on his route running. He’s focused on running out-routes, and curl-routes, and in-routes and doing all the little things that’s required to become a great wide receiver. That’s why he, to me, is one of the best in the league, because he not only has that speed – he can run by anybody – but he can run routes and he can get open. That’s why we’re going to miss him, and the Dolphins are lucky to have him.” “Love Mike, was sad to see him go,” Roethlisberger said. ”He’s a great teammate, obviously a great player, but I thought he was even better off the field. Just a great guy, great teammate. Miami is very lucky to have him because he’s a great player.”     var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Does Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin Still Want Fomer Raiders LB Rolando McClain?

As soon as the Oakland Raiders waived linebacker Rolando McClain on Friday, I knew that several people would be hollering for the Pittsburgh Steelers to go after him. A lot of the hollering for McClain by the fanbase stems from an article that Kevin Scarbinsky of the Birmingham News wrote back in December of 2009, right before Alabama played Florida. Scabinsky wrote that then...
