Brad Kaaya could succeed Big Ben

Tommy Maddox was once regarded as the greatest XFL player of all time before the league folded after its inaugural season in 2001.  After he went down with an elbow injury in the third game of the 2004 NFL season, a new star was born in Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger Sr, also known as Big Ben. Roethlisberger had a record-setting rookie season going 14-1, as he led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC championship.  Known for his ability to shake off multiple defenders in the pocket, Roethlisberger has shown true grit throughout his NFL career, winning two Super Bowls and becoming the team’s...

Ron Cook: Head trauma issues surface once more in NFL

Ben Roethlisberger is expected to play next season, his 14th with the Steelers. But what if Roethlisberger surprises everyone by retiring? Could you blame him? He has been a big part of two Super Bowl wins. He has Hall of Fame creds. He has made a fortune and has an estimated net worth of $70 million. Wouldn’t you think about walking away from a brutal game with your health if you were him? When you have three young children at home? When you want to be able to do things with them and their children instead of being physically limited?

Roethlisberger on a Return to the Steelers in 2017: “I’m Leaning Towards It”

It’s been a fear for Steelers fans since the moment it was brought up after the teams’ AFC Title Game loss to the Patriots, but it is sounding more and more like quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is “leaning towards” returning to play in 2017. The two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback stated the following at the Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend conference at Liberty University on Friday when asked if he’s coming back to the black and gold. “I’m leaning towards it.” Any casino online review would have had the longtime quarterback returning to the team, but when he said in January...

Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger leaning toward playing in 2017

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said, "I'm leaning towards" returning for the 2017 season. What It Means: Roethlisberger hinted at retirement after losing in the AFC Championship last season but nobody was really buying it. The Steelers are built to win now, and the money's not bad either; Roethlisberger is owed $46 million over the final three years of his deal. It would be an absolute stunner if the 35-year-old decided to hang up his cleats. Among the 39 quarterbacks with at least 100 drop backs this season, Roethlisberger ranked seventh in Passing Net...

Grading the Pittsburgh Steelers offseason to date

The Pittsburgh Steelers offseason has been an interesting one so far. We grade the moves made, and not made, so far this offseason. The Pittsburgh Steelers are considered a team who is one or two players away from truly contending for a Super Bowl title. Coming off a season where they were in the AFC Championship game, most expected the team to be big players in free agency, and to compound those additions with solid draft picks to help load the team with talent as they look to maximize the best of Ben Roethlisberger’s final years of his career. Instead, what fans of the black and...

Ray Lewis on the first time he played Ben Roethlisberger: 'Oh boy, we have a problem'

One of the most interesting and entertaining matchups of the 2000s was between Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. These two guys squared off between 2004-2012 and made for some of the most entertaining games during that time. Lewis went on TV with Colin Cowherd and he was asked about his time playing against Roethlisberger. You can tell by the way Lewis spoke about Roethlisberger he had the utmost respect for each other. With so much disrespect between players at this point in the NFL, it’s great to hear about two guys, the...

Steelers take out a much needed insurance policy by signing Justin Hunter

The Pittsburgh Steelers arguably have the best wide receiver in the NFL in Antonio Brown, but even he cannot act as a one man army on offense. The absence of key members of the Steelers’ receiving corps due to suspension or injury last season left Ben Roethlisberger without his normal plethora of pass catchers. With Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton, Sammie Coates, and Darrius Heyward-Bey largely unavailable for the season, the offense was forced to rely on inexperienced receivers such as Eli Rogers, Cobi Hamilton, and Demarcus Ayers. While they performed well enough to advance the Steelers...

Updated projected depth chart for the Steelers in 2017

The offseason might not be going as excited as many of you would have liked for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there’s still plenty of activity in terms of roster movement. Much of this will change with the draft, but after plugging in multiple rookies into starting lineups in 2016, they could lean on veterans more in 2017. Here’s our latest depth chart projection for 2017. This isn’t a full 53-man projection, but that will be coming soon.

2017 NFL Draft Profile: QB Brad Kaaya an interesting prospect for the Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers may have their eyes on a QB in the Draft, but will Miami’s Brad Kaaya be on their radar? When Ben Roethlisberger told the local Pittsburgh radio station he was essentially considering retirement, it sent shockwaves throughout fan base, and the Pittsburgh Steelers front office. When the team thought they had 3-5 more years left with Big Ben, suddenly they had to accelerate their plans at the quarterback position, and they interviewed several quarterbacks at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last week. One of those quarterbacks to be interviewed was Miami’s...
