The Steelers will take on the St. Louis Rams today in the hopes of achieving their first road win of the season as well as their first back-to-back win of the season. While they’re getting ready to take the field we’ll be looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Sunday, Sept. 27th.

Stacking wins

The Steelers didn’t win two games in a row until Week 8 last year and spent the early part of the season in a back and forth of wins and losses. Steelers Bob Labriola asked coach Mike Tomlin which is more important to indicate a good team; stacking wins or bouncing back after a loss.

"“How you respond to adversity defines you, but you don’t get to this level unless that’s inside you in some form or fashion. Ultimately in the National Football League, we’re defined by how we handle success, our ability to stay singularly focused, our ability to enjoy the process of preparation as you experience success. So for me, it’s more important to reveal that, to deal successfully with success, as opposed to bouncing back from failure. All of these guys have shown the capability of bouncing back from failure enough, or else they wouldn’t be here.” – Mike Tomlin"

Ben on the run

Ben Roethlisberger was once known for his uncanny ability to improvise and make spectacular plays after a play has broken down. These days he’s protected and, as ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reminds us, makes most of his strikes from the pocket.

Roethlisberger has been sacked only twice through two games so far but Heath Miller explains that while Roethlisberger isn’t the young buck running around the field anymore, he still loves, “playground football”. We’ll see how much on the run Roethlisberger will be today against the Ram’s defense.

Bradshaw vs Roethlisberger

Ron Cook of the PPG proclaims that Ben Roethlisberger, not Terry Bradshaw, is the greatest quarterback in Steelers history. Roethlisberger has been slowly but surely passing all of Bradshaw’s passing and wins records for the past few seasons and if the Steelers get the win in St. Louis, Ben will become the Steelers organization’s winningest quarterback.

When you ask Roethlisberger himself, Bradshaw still has the edge because of one stat that he hasn’t been able to pass; Super Bowl wins.

What do you think, Steeler Nation? Does Roethlisberger need to pass Bradshaw’s Super Bowl wins to pass him as the greatest quarterback of the Steelers franchise?
