Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to another victory Sunday night and managed to take down his last two opponents in record form – notching 6 TD passes in each of his last two games. It seems like nothing could get Big Ben down…well, except for maybe this late hit.
We look at this game from a fantasy football perspective and consider the players from both sides that should be placed in the lineup or benched.
So it is with my jaded view of the world that I address the Ben Roethlisberger – Emmanuel Sanders feud. Sanders said that his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, is a much better leader than his old quarterback, Big Ben. And thus the verbal jousting began, feathers flexed, talons out.
There’s a baleful buzz around Big Ben and my beloved black & gold these days. Reports say that the mountainous QB is now a mutinous QB, demanding he be traded at the end of this season.
