?Enemy AFC North coaches who would like to dislodge Pittsburgh after the Steelers ran away with the division title at 15-1 last season, would like nothing better than for Ben Roethlisberger to experience a sophomore jinx. Or, perhaps, play the way he did in the post-season, when he threw five interceptions and three touchdown passes on way to a 61.3 passer rating.

"I would hope to try to make him play like the quarterback who played in the AFC championship game," said Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis.

All three division rivals ? the Bengals, Browns and Ravens ? would like to find a way to turn Big Ben into Little Benny this season. Only one NFL team beat him, and the man who helped accomplish that was Patriots defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, now Cleveland's head coach.

Rest of the article:

I think Ben will be fine this year. He is a strong quarterback and I do think he will remain humble. I can't wait to see this guy in his second NFL season.
