Obviously, I will do whatever I need to do,” Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “That’s something that can be discussed when the time comes. It’s not really my thing. I play football. I have people to deal with all that stuff. I will do whatever it takes to stay here and be a part of this team and help this team win.” Roethlisberger, 31, has two years remaining on his eight-year, $102 million contract, not including this season. The problem for the Steelers is that his cap number for the 2014 season sits at $17.895 million and doesn’t move much in 2015 when h...

Steelers Red Zone Troubles May Be Their Downfall

Somehow, some way the Pittsburgh Steelers are a game out of the AFC Wild-card picture. This, after starting 0-4 and then 2-6 but the Steelers have won two straight and sit right behind the New York Jets who are 5-5. Pittsburgh would own a tie-breaker with them because they won the head-to-head match-up earlier this year. There are a lot of things we can point to that could ultimately...

Big Ben Will Take One for the Team
