Default Re: Reportcard: Game 3 -- Steelers vs. 49ers

I'd agree. I'm fine with a B or B+ rating.

I know some people are going to bare teeth at the mere mention of "game manager", but do you guys think this is the year Ben Roethlisberger breaks free of that tag? To be honest, I'm pretty much okay with him "just" being a game manager and not a 35 attempts-per-game QB, so long as we show we can still do what's necessary, which, as VolatileMan pointed out, Ben has shown so far this season. Ben looks good going deep, he looks comfortable under pressure, and other than the overthrows to Ward yesterday, he seems to be able to predict with his wideouts and TEs. He and Holmes connecting on comebacks yesterday was pretty headsup playing :)
