    Bayless: Roethlisberger Wins NFL MVP in '19

    I generally respect Bayless' opinions but am surprised he is backing Roethlisberger's season given a bunch of uncertainties on offense.

    But hey, let's go...



    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is entering the 2019 NFL season with a lot of pressure on his shoulders. After the team made a big move to trade star wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders and star running back Le’Veon Bell left in free agency for the New York Jets, all eyes have been turned on the star quarterback to prove just how good he is without other superstars backing him up.

    Skip Bayless has no doubt that Big Ben will be able to keep the Steelers in serious contention. Not only does he think Roethlisberger can lead the team to another division win, he is predicting an MVP award.

    In a segment on Undisputed, Bayless talked about his high expectations and MVP prediction for Roethlisberger in 2019.

    Pittsburgh is being forgotten in the AFC picture this offseason. That is due in large part to the Cleveland Browns making big moves this offseason. Odell Beckham Jr. was the big move, while the Browns also acquired players like Kareem Hunt, Olivier Vernon, and Greedy Williams via free agency and the draft.

    Last season, Roethlisberger ended up completing 67.0 percent of his pass attempts for 5,129 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions. He has to cut down the turnovers, but the other numbers would put him in contention.


    Shannon Sharpe made it fairly clear that Patrick Mahomes is still at the top of his list. Despite the other options, Bayless is sticking with the Steelers’ quarterback.

    If Roethlisberger can win an MVP award, it would cement his legacy. Doing so without Brown and Bell would be a massive message sent to the rest of the league.

    Every year he alone goes "against the grain" and courageously predicts the Pats will win the SB.

    Dude is like a stinkin PROPHET.

    HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA...Bayless is a tool and a fool. But Ben winning it is in the realm of possibility. Ben will distribute the ball to whoever is open now..no predetermined receivers anymore. Not as many yards as last year because we will be running the ball more and our defense SHOULD be better. But less picks and more wins...yeah; Ben can be in the MVP conversation for sure. He can start the ball rolling in grand fashion by beating the Pats. THAT will get the nation's attention for sure.

    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    This is a classic talking head prediction move. Predict something that has chance but is fairly unlikely.

    Then, if you're correct you brag about it for a long time. If you're wrong, no one remembers.

    I think there's little chance Ben wins MVP. I think he'd have to be head and shoulders above everyone for the league to risk the blow back of honoring Ben given his history off the field.

    This is a good point.

    But I can't say what the odds Roethlisberger has for MVP because the voting criteria seems awfully murky. Is it as much the 'eye test ' as it is stats? We know how much the eye test varies in this crowd...
