4 takeaways from Steelers all-important victory vs Titans
By Tommy Jaggi
Ben Roethlisberger isn’t playing well enough to win a Super Bowl
I disagree with the notion that Ben Roethlisberger has played great over the past few games. Though I threw some credit his way for helping his team fight back in what would have been blowout contests in recent weeks, his poor first-half performances have been a big part of the issue.
In this game, however, I can’t even give Ben credit for putting up good numbers in the second half, as he seemed to have very little to do with the victory. Rather, it was Pittsburgh’s remarkable defense that surrendered just 13 points and earned 4 takeaways in this contest that allowed this team to win the football game.
Roethlisberger has had some really nice moments this year, but his game against the Titans is one fan would like to forget. I have a hard time believing that the Steelers can win a Super Bowl with the way that their quarterback is currently playing. He needs to prove that he can show up for all four quarters.
Somehow, this one doesn’t feel like a win, and I didn’t see nearly as much as I was hoping to from this squad — particularly the offense. With just three games to go, Mike Tomlin needs to make sure his team is at the top of their game down the stretch in order to make a run at the playoffs.
