Ben Roethlisberger is being questioned on his ability to do things on the football field.
According to Jason La Canfora, the Steelers are becoming more concerned internally about him.
“The former All-Pro has continued to look old and near the end, according to several execs who have broken down his film, and concern is mounting within the organization as well given the limitations of this offense thus far.”
The report goes on to say that Roethlisberger’s lack of mobility is playing a major role in the handcuffing of the offense as well in the eyes of many who have watched closely.
“This looks like what I saw last December,” said one AFC exec who has kept a close eye on the Steelers. “He isn’t any better, and he’s getting hit all the time now, too. That’s a problem.”
Another exec offered: “The ball gets out in two seconds, or he gets hit. And he can’t shake ’em off like he used to. I don’t think they can get him through the season like this.”
Before today’s game, the 39-year-old has appeared in two games for the Steelers and completed 45-72 of his passes (62.5 percent) for 483 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
