Paying homage to the plays which gave Ben Roethlisberger the nickname ‘Big Ben’

Paying homage to the plays which gave Ben Roethlisberger the nickname ‘Big Ben’

Looking back at the best “backyard” plays of Ben Roethlisberger’s career. Back in 2004, as a college student, I watched as the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Ben Roethlisberger and instantly became enamored with the man they called ‘Big Ben’. It wasn’t that Roethlisberger was larger than life, nor even the streak of games he won as a rookie — but the way he played the game. You don’t see these types of plays from Roethlisberger as much as you used to. He’s more cerebral as a quarterback now and less of a gunslinger. But every now and then, you’ll get a glimpse of that...

Ben Roethlisberger lends a helping hand to Mason Rudolph on Day 1 of Steelers OTAs

The Steelers were back on the field for OTAs, and Big Ben was more than helpful to young rookie Mason Rudolph. Regardless of your personal opinions on the comments made by Ben Roethlisberger regarding rookie quarterback Mason Rudolph, you didn’t really think Roethlisberger wouldn’t help Rudolph when the team returned for Organized Team Activities (OTAs), did you? While Roethlisberger was, and possibly still is, miffed about the team drafting a quarterback in the third round, the franchise quarterback said his comments were taken out of context when he spoke on 93.7 The Fan and made the...

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback depth ranked 11th in the NFL

ESPN recently ranked all 32 NFL teams with their “QB Confidence Index”, and the Steelers land just outside the Top 10. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team who has been buoyed by a franchise quarterback going on 15 years. After all, good NFL team typically have good NFL quarterbacks. With Ben Roethlisberger at the helm, he has seen a number of backup quarterbacks come and go throughout his tenure. Brian St. Pierre, Dennis Dixon, Charlie Batch and Landry Jones...just to name a few. Throughout it all, the depth at the position never really mattered as long as No. 7 was upright and...

Browns DE Myles Garrett still plans to take down Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

The Cleveland Browns are coming off an incredibly disappointing 0-16 season. Despite a winless campaign in 2017, Cleveland is expected to take a leap forward in 2018 with some welcome additions on offense as well as the return of a healthy Myles Garrett on defense. Garrett was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s […] The post Browns DE Myles Garrett still plans to take down Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger appeared first on ClutchPoints.
Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph share some surprising connections

Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph share some surprising connections

On the surface, Big Ben and rookie QB Mason Rudolph might seem to be polar opposites, but appearances can be deceiving. One Pittsburgh Steeler is a 36-year-old, veteran NFL quarterback who, by the time he hangs up his cleats, surely will rank as one of the all-time greats of professional football. The other Steeler is a callow, 22-year-old who excelled as a college QB but is only beginning to get his feet wet in the super-competitive NFL. Whether they like it or not, Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph have been thrust into the mentor/understudy relationship which typically paves the way...

When it comes to third down completions, Ben Roethlisberger has been money his whole career

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback may have his downfalls from time to time, but he’s always been great on third downs. The Pittsburgh Steelers, and by proxy their fans, have been blessed since 2004. When the team drafted Ben Roethlsiberger with the 11th overall pick in the first round, it completely altered the trajectory of the franchise. Roethlisberger has orchestrated some tremendous comebacks, huge statistical games, been to three Super Bowls and won two of them. An illustrious career indeed, but how he plays the game each week is something worth noting — especially on “money...

Mason Rudolph and James Washington can read each other’s minds

Could the Rudolph/Washington connection eventually rival that of Roethlisberger/Brown? The Pittsburgh Steelers currently have a tremendous quarterback/wide receiver duo on their roster with Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. The connection between those two players very well could be considered one of the best in not only the NFL today, but also in league history, and the duo has set the bar extremely high for those to follow. If there are two players who wouldn’t mind etching out their own place in Steelers lore, it would be rookies Mason Rudolph and James Washington. The...
