Ben Roethlisberer…a true warrior. Big Ben led the Pittsburgh Steelers to another great regular season last year, finishing with a 12-4 record and clinching a wild card spot. But when it came to the play-offs the Steelers weren’t good enough…they fell to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Overall, Ben had another great season, but unfortunately he is very injury-prone. As I said before, Roethlisberger is a true warrior, even if he’s injured, he will still run out onto that field and put his heart into anything and everything. Big Ben finished the season with a rating of 90.1, threw for over 4,000 yards, and threw for 21 touchdowns. He threw 14 interceptions and had 7 fumbles, and one of the reasons for this is because he is under pressure often and gets sacked several times. Let’s get back to the positives again. Roethlisberger had a very good completion percentage of 63.2. Ben Roethlisberger is a real fighter and will continue to be a leader for his team no matter what, even if he is extremely injured and is in a tremendous amount of pain. I think the Pittsburgh Steelers will have another good year but not be as good as they used to. Ben Roethlisberger is dealing with another injury and the team is facing many challenges at the moment, including Mike Wallace‘s holdout. I think the Steelers will go 11-5 or 10-6, but still clinch a wild card spot.   Related articles
