Ben Roethlisberger: 'We haven't used Le'Veon Bell to his full potential'

As Le'Veon Bell continues his march to the team's yards from scrimmage record, his quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, doesn't think they've used him enough yet. PITTSBURGH -- For those who have watched him closely this season, you probably could see Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell grow exponentially each week. In his second NFL season and through just 20 games, Bell has become one of the most complete backs in the league. He leads the AFC with 599 yards rushing, which is third in the NFL, but he also has 36 catches for 339 yards. Bell has one touchdown each way, but both were...

Steelers Film Room: Great route run by Martavis Bryant on touchdown

The Pittsburgh Steelers received contributions from a lot of different players to help defeat the Houston Texans on Monday night. Steelers Film Room takes a look at who those contributors were as we take a look back on one of the most dramatic turnarounds in recent memory. I have to be honest, I didn't see this one coming.  When the Houston Texans were up 13-0, I thought the Steelers had reached the nadir of the Ben Roethlisberger era.  And, I didn't see things improving anytime soon.  I had all kinds of thoughts running through my head.  I was also very frustrated with the lack of...

Ben Roethlisberger aims for career win No. 100

BTSC senior staff writer Dale Grdnic spoke with Ben Roethlisberger about Andrew Luck, the performance of rookie Martavis Bryant and the chances of getting career win No. 100 Sunday vs. Indianapolis. PITTSBURGH -- In his 11th NFL season, Ben Roethlisberger's development as a quarterback has evolved to where the Pittsburgh Steelers have asked him to do a lot in their offense. Roethlisberger has become a team leader and game manager, instead of the gunslinger that he was early in his career, but also a blocker? Big Ben picked off a charging defensive back to give time to wideout-turned-passer...

Tom Brady's work at extending plays

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Fifteen years into his NFL career, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady knows his deficiencies well. One of them is extending plays with his feet. "It's never really been something I've been great at -- extending plays," he said. "I see so many of these players, whether it be Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers or Jay Cutler and Alex Smith, some really mobile quarterbacks who do a great job for their team; Ben Roethlisberger has done it for a lot of years.

Steelers’ Bell made sure he ‘won’ route on game-changing catch

PITTSBURGH — The Texans held a 13-0 lead and had the Steelers backed up to their 14-yard line on third down and 15 with 5 minutes, 42 seconds left in the second quarter. Then quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hit running back Le’Veon Bell for a 43-yard connection Monday at Heinz Field. Bell ran by Texans linebacker […]

Winners and Losers from Steelers 30-23 win over Houston Texans

A horrendous start was followed by an explosive end of the first half. After that, the defense held strong in the win. Winners Martavis Bryant - Welcome to the show, rookie. On his second target, Bryant made his first NFL catch, a 35-yard touchdown strike from Ben Roethlisberger during a furious 24-point rally from the Steelers. It was the big play the Steelers needed to get back on track after a horrendous start to the game. Le'Veon Bell - He had his best receiving game as a pro, and ran very well as the Steelers' primary offensive weapon. He ran for tough, hard yards as Houston looked to...

Martavis Bryant catches first NFL pass on TD from Ben Roethlisberger (video)

The Pittsburgh Steelers may have finally found the spark they needed to get their offense going. Trailing 13-3 in their Monday night contest with the Houston Texans, Pitt was in desperate need of someone to step up on offense, and they got it from a guy playing in his first NFL game. Rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant had been inactive in each of the Steelers' first six games while he recovered from a preseason hamstring injury in addition to learning the playbook. Bryant is made quite a debut with his second-quarter score to give the Steelers' their first touchdown of the...

Week 7 Monday Night Football open thread: Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers

JJ Watt and Ben Roethlisberger face off against one another on Monday Night Football. AFC South meets AFC North tonight in the concluding game of week 7, as the 3-3 Houston Texans travel to face the 3-3 Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. The Texans are second in their division, two games behind the 5-2 Indianapolis Colts, whom they lost to 33-28 in the week 5 Thursday night game.  Having fallen to the Dallas Cowboys 17-20 in overtime the week before, they'll be looking to avoid a third straight loss. The Texans will also be hoping that first overall pick in the 2014 draft Jadeveon Clowney...
Steelers 2-Minute Drill: Attacking J.J. Watt, Texans pass rush

Steelers 2-Minute Drill: Attacking J.J. Watt, Texans pass rush

On this week's edition of the Steelers 2-Minute Drill, BTSC editor Neal Coolong talks about how the Steelers can beat J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. The Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive line has a tough assignment in dealing with arguably the best defensive player in the past decade in Houston Texans' defensive lineman J.J. Watt. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley and Ben Roethlisberger will have to be creative to find ways of neutralizing Watt and his skill set, but as BTSC editor Neal Coolong discusses in this week's Steelers 2-Minute Drill, you might not have to...
Monday night would be a good time for Ben Roethlisberger to upstage J.J. Watt

Monday night would be a good time for Ben Roethlisberger to upstage J.J. Watt

Stage is the biggest, lights are the brightest, no better time for Steelers QB Ben Roehtlisberger to out-duel Texans super-stud DE J.J. Watt. J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans will be at Heinz Field Monday evening for a nationally televised Week 7 clash against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's kind of weird giving a defensive end (one who plays in a 3-4 scheme, no doubt) top billing before his actual team, but that's just how dominant Watt has been for most of his career that already includes 40.5 quarterback sacks in 54 games. (Did I mention Watt is a 3-4 defensive end?) Watt deserves all...

Browns vs. Jaguars key matchup: Browns aware of Blake Bortles’ abilities, weaknesses

BEREA: Browns coach Mike Pettine alluded to the fact that some people refer to Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles as “Baby Ben,” a reference to his resemblance in stature [6-foot-5, 232 pounds] to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger.The Browns can control whether Bortles has similar success to Roethlisberger when they play the Jaguars on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Jacksonville.“The success that he’s having does not come as any surprise. He can make all the throws,” Pettine said of Bortles. “People call him ‘Baby Ben’ because of the resemblance to...
