The Pittsburgh Steelers just got past the Philadelphia Eagles to get their second win on the season. Ben Roethlisberger didn’t complete a touchdown pass in the game. How many times can you remember Roethlisberger playing the complete game without throwing a touchdown pass?  The Steelers aren’t playing the kind of football the people in Pittsburgh are used to seeing.  Their quarterback who has been the anchor of the team is having his share of problems this season.

Roethlisberger threw for only 207 yards as the Steelers had to kick a field goal to get a win over the Eagles.  Big Ben didn’t throw for a touchdown and the Steelers have only won 2 out of their 4 games in 2012. The Steelers made a lot of changes this off-season to their offense,  sometimes change isn’t good.  The Pittsburgh offense was better last season and the Steelers are paying the price for these changes.

Big Ben isn’t performing to the level we are used to seeing.  If the Steelers are going to compete for the AFC North,  Roethlisberger and his Pittsburgh offense have to get things going. Right now they are just a game behind the Bengals in 3rd place in the AFC North and 2 games back of the Ravens.  It is time for Roethlisberger to turn it up a notch.
