Ben Roethlisberger Struggling This Season

    September 17, 2013

Steelers heartbreak happened for the second time this season when the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers with a final score of Steelers 21 and Bengals 23. The dismal season to-date for Ben Roethlisberger becomes obvious when considering his plays thus far, which include having passed only 442 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for the total of the two games. That’s an average of one-for-one with only two games into the season.

When battling the Bengals in the second game of the season for the Steelers, Roethlisberger passed 251 yards and made one touchdown. Fans should not be too disheartened with Roethlisberger’s performance just yet since he has the reputation for putting on the heat when the pressure rises. The video recap of the Steelers and Bengals showdown on Monday night proves how close the two teams competed for the win.

Though only two games into the season, fans have started voicing concerns that Ben Roethlisberger is being viewed as a caricature of himself where his skills and hype are disproportionate to the observable performances and expectations placed upon his broad shoulders. However, the season is just starting and the famous quarterback still has time to prove himself before being subjected to another potential discarding. Whether the Steelers will redeem themselves this season is anyone’s guess; however, in the meantime people are all too happy to comment on the potential outcomes for the season.
