@ The Steelers wasted one of the best performances of Roethlisberger's life.
In fact, they've wasted one of the best starts of his career, stumbling out of the gate with a 1-2 record.
Roethlisberger has a 109.2 passer rating and eight TD passes in three games.
@ On the flip side of that, opposing quarterbacks have a 99.8 rating
. This after opposing QBs had a rating of just 71.7 in 2011 despite the Steelers only making 11 interceptions.
The Steelers allowed 15 touchdown passes in the entire 2011 season. They're currently on pace to give up 32
The team isn't generating any pass rush
and it's allowing opposing QBs to do pretty much anything they want back there.
Can the return of James Harrison and Troy Polamalu help that? They certainly can't hurt.
But it doesn't bode well for the future.
