ESPN’s Adam Schefter: Steelers Will ‘Never’ Bench Ben Roethlisberger

Published

While Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has struggled during the team’s 1-3 start, a prominent league insider does not think he will be benched any time soon.

Joining ESPN’s Get Up on Thursday, Adam Schefter was adamant that the Steelers will not sit Roethlisberger, but that he just needs to play better.

“They are never going to bench Ben Roethlisberger,” he said. “It’s never going to get to that. So he has to figure out a way to play better, make better decisions and elevate this team to where it played in the first week of the season at Buffalo.”

Schefter added that other than improving his decision making, there is little Roethlisberger can do to combat and overcome his lack of mobility and the team’s struggling offensive line.

Roethlisberger has tossed four touchdowns and four interceptions, but is only averaging 9.5 yards per completion. He has also been sacked ten times.
