Why Pittsburgh Never Should've Brought Back Ben Roethlisberger
In the video above, Chris Broussard & Rob Parker react to Ben Roethlisberger's recent comments indicating that he'll likely be playing his final game as a Pittsburgh Steeler in Pittsburgh when they take on the Cleveland Browns on Monday. Rob Parker makes the case that Big Ben had no business being a Steeler in 2021.
Rob Parker: "I'm gonna go off on the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. They're the ones who kept him one year too long. The handwriting was on the wall a year ago. And they didn't have a backup plan. They should've drafted a quarterback a couple of years ago or last year or whatever you wanna do, but they had to have somebody ready. When Big Ben came back and took a pay cut just to stick around, you already knew you were getting a discounted quarterback because he had to take a pay cut to even be on the team. So you knew what you were getting. You weren't getting steak, you were getting chop liver. Bill Belichick is famous for getting rid of somebody a year too early than a year too late. That's what good teams do. The Steelers were in their feelings. They're living in the past."
