Ben Roethlisberger is suddenly terrible

A week ago the entire city of Pittsburgh was bowing down to the almighty power of Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers’ quarterback led one of the most impressive second-half comebacks of the season just a week ago and the next week it’s like we forgot all about it.

This doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be criticized for the loss in Denver because he should. But the quarterback position has the shortest memory in football. He’s not thinking about last week and neither should anyone else.

Phillip Rivers has been lights out, but to say he’s going to blow Roethliseberger out of the water when they meet on the field is absurd. This is still the two-time Super Bowl champion we’re talking about. Before last week people were putting him in the MVP race. Stop with the drastic changes, people.
