Default USA Today Big Ben New Era

a great article by usa today about our game against the saints! they say we have a new big ben! read the article it also talk about how all the players did in the game! Below are some of the important parts in the article!


http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...15005223_x.htm
Mike Tomlin needed less than five minutes to see Ben Roethlisberger perform in the preseason like former Steelers coach Bill Cowher never saw him play the last two summers.

Three passes, two completions, 73 yards and one very quick, six-play touchdown drive may have been all that Roethlisberger required Sunday night to prove his star-crossed and unfocused 2006 season is behind him and he is rapidly moving on.

The last two preseasons, Roethlisberger played minimally and produced minimally - a total of one TD pass and 256 yards passing in the Steelers' eight exhibition games. Never in that time did he look as locked in and as ready to go as he did during the 20-7 decision over New Orleans on Sunday, and there's still a month to go before the Sept. 9 opener at Cleveland.

Not trying to be a party pooper, but I don't think we can say anything about Ben's performance based on just 3 throws. I'm little worried how he'd do, when he start getting some real beating from the other teams when the season starts.

That article is just a bit over the top. As Mongol points out one series of 3 passes to start the first pre-season game of the year doesn't mean a whole lot in the big scheme of things.

I think Ben will be fine but one quick series in a meaningless game is meaningless. If Ben had gone 1-3 for 6 yards and 1 INT in the same series would anybody claim Ben as broken, or worse lazy? Of course some would but they wouldn't be any closer to making a case than this guy.

I dont see how you can take away that much from teh 1rst preseason game. Its preseason ad he had what 2 drives come one. There is no way how you can be saying ben has changed just from that one preformace

As promising as he looked, Mongol is right. Don't get me wrong, I think Ben is going to be better this year than any of his previous years. Only time will tell.

Normally id say the same thing as well, but ben is out there to prove himself. He HAS so many critics and everyone pretty much counted him out. He has a considerable amount of pressure on his shoulders, and for him to just jump in and throw and amazing first series says a lot about his abilitiy and aggresivness. and it was against saints first team defense, even though thats not saying much.

Let the pre season wear on and in the third or fourth game we will see how he does. That is when they usually play the starters the most. Nothing matters until September 9th anyway. As long as they stay pretty healthy.

The main thing to take away from Ben's performance, IMO, is that the troubles of the past year are officially behind him. No matter how this coming season shakes out, it's getting clearer all the time that the uncertain, mistake-prone Ben of last season is gone.

OK I hate to say this, but, if you remember, Ben looked good last preseason too---he'd play one great series a game and then get taken out. I'm not saying he won't have a great year, I think he will, but to say that he looked like crap last preseason is flat out wrong.

To say he is new man after three passes (albeit the 55 yarder was beautiful) is just stupid.
