    Sure he can say that, Ben makes so many amazing throws because he has that mentality. He is always going to try and make plays that is who he is, unfortunately it doesn't work 100% of the time.

    Cost us the game in this situation. Look, he can be a slinger, he just needs to play a little smarter.

    A lot of things cost us that game, Ben always plays right on the edge and that's why we were even in that game after 3 turnovers.

    i thought the same thing...if he just keeps running in his stride the ball is right there......that was a wide receiver playing bad...

    That's true. Unfortunately, it was a game that came down to the end. To borrow a Tomlinism, you have to play 60 minutes of good football. For a few seconds, Ben didn't and it cost us a chance to tie it up at the end of regulation. Look, I'm very happy that we have him as our QB, and I, too, will miss him when he's gone. I just want him to be smarter in situations like that.

    Yes, "a lot of things cost us that game." There were several missed opportunities that could've been big difference-makers for us. And I understand that all players are going to make mistakes. But often, it's decisions in critical moments that separates champions from runners-up. I'd sure like to see us be champions. We have the talent.

    Look - Ben can do what he wants, but daggitt, he has to know he can't keep turning the ball over like this! If he doesn't understand that then he is a straight up, fool that needs to retire! They're not going to win turning the ball over at this rate, and when they play the better teams those turnovers are going to be magnified because you already know Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers etc., they are going to make you pay for each one of them! And he doesn't have that kind of defense that can protect his mistakes!

    Ben Roethlisberger: Calling people out is part of being a captain

    Posted by Josh Alper on November 28, 2018, 12:41 PM EST

    Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger made a radio appearance on Tuesday that included criticism of wide receiver James Washington for his unsuccessful attempt to catch a pass in the second half of last Sunday’s loss to the Broncos.

    That’s not a particularly new thing for Roethlisberger and the radio appearance on Tuesday also included notes for wide receiver Antonio Brown and offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner. On Wednesday, Roethlisberger was asked about those comments.

    He said he’s “earned the right to be able to do that with as long as I have been here” and said that he believes it’s part of the responsibility of a team captain to let teammates know if they are falling short. Roethlisberger added that his teammates would have to say for themselves whether they have a problem with that approach.

    “I would hope that they would understand that as the quarterback and the captain that I have the right to do those things,” Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I don’t feel like I abuse that situation. So I don’t think it’s an issue, but you would have to ask them.”

    Veterans and captains are expected to set the tone for their teams, although if there is an issue with Roethlisberger’s critiques it would likely be with airing them in a public space rather than one reserved for members of the team.

    No lies told, I started using this theory with Ben many years ago and I'm glad I did, he is exciting, sometimes positive exciting and other times negative exciting, but almost always exciting. It's fun watching games in which Ben plays.

    A wise coach once said there are 3 things that can happen on a pass play, and 2 of them are bad. Given those odds, it is amazing QBs do what they do for a win.
