Default Shouldn't there have been a penalty on Stroud?

It was a very smart and thoughtful move for Stroud to hold onto Big Ben, but isn't that holding?

Would you have preferred he'd "Warren Sapped" him (a la Chad Clifton) well away from the play? Just kidding--I also thought it was a good move by Stroud to keep both of them well away from the injury risk.....

After Ben Roethlisberger had thrown his interception, he tried to get out of the way of Donte Whitner’s interception return. Bills lineman Marcus Stroud helped by wrapping his arms around the Steelers’ quarterback and shielding him from the collision that took place nearby.

Nice of ol’ Marcus to think about everyone’s safety at a time like that, because Pittsburgh fans just like to talk about backup quarterbacks, not deal with them.

I noticed he was grabbing him at the time and laughed about it.

pretty good sportsmanship displayed by stroud

don't know if it should be a penalty though. it shouldn't imo

Its preseason. To guys like Stroud and Ben its all about getting some work in and not having some guy fighting for a starting job rolling up on your ACL.

Just some Pro's lookin out for each other.

Im glad Stroud did what he did. I'd rather have that then Ben tear his ACL and be done for the year.

And since it was to protect Ben, that's why it wasn't called.

I can hear Stroud telling Ben now "hold on there big guy, it don't count yet". Still a very classy move in my opinion.
