The Pittsburgh Steelers are usually not going to win the Tremendous Bowl.

I’ve made a whole lot of ensures earlier than that’ve blown up in my face, however I really feel completely assured saying that. The Steelers have the 13th-worst document of the 14 playoff groups. They’re the bottom seed within the AFC. They averaged the fourth-fewest yards per carry throughout the common season. Their passing assault has been carried by Diontae Johnson and Najee Harris, and to high all of it off, even quarterback Ben Roethlisberger appears to suppose his guys don’t have an opportunity.

I’m able to run via a brick wall after that! If I’m a Steelers’ participant, I’m feeling amped for the matchup! I really feel like I might tackle the world!

“We most likely aren’t an excellent soccer staff.” Nobody has ever muttered phrases extra inspirational than Roethlisberger simply did, and I’m positive the Steelers’ locker room is completely electrical after that quote.

In all seriousness, in what world does Roethlisberger suppose this was an excellent quote? I can see what he meant behind all of the self-doubt. He was most likely attempting to instill an underdog mentality in his squad. He was most likely attempting to get his teammates desirous about how nobody thinks they’ll win, so they may as nicely give all of it they acquired. I’ve to say “most likely” as a result of Roethlisberger actually leaves it as much as interpretation with the best way he phrases his reply.

He even leads off his reply with “We haven’t mentioned it [as a team]” which means that he hasn’t talked to his staff about this underdog mentality he’s attempting to instill. So, this was most likely the primary time any of his teammates had been listening to something like this. The staff was simply 4 days away from their Wild-Card assembly with the Chiefs and that is the very first thing Roethlisberger says in regards to the recreation? That’s simply…dangerous, actually dangerous.

The Steelers followers amongst you’re most likely screaming via your laptop screens saying one thing like, “Effectively, clearly he didn’t imply it the way you’re taking it, fool!” And yeah, that’s true, but when it’s a must to rush to the feedback part of the video and defend your quarterback by ensuring everyone is aware of it’s sarcasm, then that’s not an excellent look regardless of which manner you attempt to slice it. If most individuals can’t discern what Massive Ben is definitely attempting to say, then there are most likely gamers within the Steelers’ locker room having hassle with it as nicely.

No one outdoors of Pittsburgh desires the Steelers to win this recreation. Pig Ben Roethlisberger has been capable of run away from his previous, stroll away from a number of rape allegations just about unscathed, all of the whereas receiving reward from his adoring fanbase for a lot too lengthy. It’s sickening.

Prolonging the already drained narrative of “That is Ben’s final season,” can also be not a purpose to need to see extra. He acquired his vomit-inducing send-off parade throughout his ultimate recreation at Heinz Subject already. The fireworks have gone off. All people went house disenchanted and shaking their heads. The celebration is completed. Over. Completed.

Now, you’re telling me, even in any case Ben’s dangerous play this 12 months, and the ridicule he’s has acquired, you’d nonetheless quite watch THIS than Mahomes within the divisional spherical? I don’t imagine you, not for one second.

Roethlisberger is outdated, fragile, and a shell of the participant he as soon as was. We, the followers, shouldn’t need to be subjected to the putrid soccer we’re about to witness on Sunday evening, particularly if Roethlisberger’s pregame pep tal is anyplace close to as adrenaline-boosting and tear-jerking because the one he simply gave the media.
