    Right... If he knew this all along then why did he throw the pass. A true brain child at work.

    Ben Roethlisberger doesnít think Steelers are in transition

    Posted by Josh Alper on March 6, 2013

    The Steelers could be saying goodbye to wide receiver Mike Wallace, cornerback Keenan Lewis and others in the next few weeks, continuing the trend of the last few seasons that finds longtime members of the team giving way to new faces.

    Despite that, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesnít think that the team is in decline or in transition. He thinks the front office will find quality players to plug into any open spots and he believes that the way last season ended will serve as inspiration for better results this time around.

    ďI donít want to say itís a transition phase because I feel like Iím still here and ready to rock and roll. I feel healthier, better. I feel like Iím in my prime and ready to play great football. And I feel that weíve got guys around here who feel the same way,Ē Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. ĒI think the frustration from last year will be motivation for guys who are back again.Ē

    Roethlisberger might not feel that way, but the Steelers have been in a transition phase in the last couple of years. Players and coaches who played key roles have moved on and the team is still replacing some of the leading lights from a very prosperous decade-plus of football. Transition doesnít automatically mean decline, though, so itís not like Roethlisberger should be resigning himself to a losing season or expecting anything other than the rebound he expects from his team in 2013.

    Then again, we are talking about the same QB that will consistently give up a sack on 3rd down and take us out of field goal range instead of throwing the ball away.
    That's not an accurate statement at all.

    You also are confused, throwing the ball away from the pocket is grounding.

    It's not accurate? That's odd because I've seen it with my own two eyes several times throughout Ben's career.... In fact, I think it happened in that must win Cincinnati game. Oh who cares right??? We only lost by 3 points.... OOOooopss. I guess that field goal was pretty important after all.

    Thanks Ben!

    Throwing the ball away isn't grounding if a player is close by.

    The article itself is just a bit of nothing. Some offseason talk. Of course, the headline gets everyone's panties in a bunch.

    So much about performing is going out and doing. You can rehearse all you want, but sometimes you don't know if it's there until your in that situation. He probably had the strength to make most of the throws he was doing day to day. However, when he gets to the end of the game and he's tired, but still adrenalized he probably didn't even realize he didn't have what it takes until it was too late.

If he didn't have the arm strength then he needs to have the brains to know he shouldn't have thrown that pass when their was a high percentage of an INT. IMO, he actually played worse mentally than he played physically. Then again, we are talking about the same QB that will consistently give up a sack on 3rd down and take us out of field goal range instead of throwing the ball away. Brains and Roethlisberger don't necessarily go together.
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ Exactly. Did his rib injury cause his brain to not work? Bonehead Ben always has an excuse, even though he will always downplay an injury and say it's not why he lost, but he is constantly making sure we all know that he is hurt - even if they are mystery injuries like his supposed broken toe that one year that Cowher said he never even heard of.
