The #1 Cochran Ben Roethlisberger Show features an in-studio visit from the Steelers’ quarterback himself, his lovely wife Ashley AND Benjamin, Jr!
From today’s appearance with Vinnie & Cook on Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan:
Although Roethlisberger has seen improvement from the team from week to week, the Steelers are still looking for their first win of the year.
“It doesn’t make you sleep any better at night saying you were close,” Ben said. “A loss is still a loss, if you ask me. But we do feel like we’re in games and we’re being competitive. We just need to find a way to get over that hump.”
“I am always their number-one supporter, no matter what,” Ben said of his offensive linemen. “And I tell them this. But there comes a time where if you’re not playing up to par, coach has to make a decision. He’s doing that with Mike.”
“If you’re Mike Adams you’ve got to take the approach of, ‘Wow, I’m now third on the depth chart. I need to probably pick it up a little bit,'” Roethlisberger said. “Maybe this is exactly what he needs to get to that next level, to be that high-profile guy. I know he can be that guy, and I’ve got confidence in him that he can be.”
Ben is also encouraged by rookie running back Le’Veon Bell’s debut, “He showed me some glimpses of what Adrian Peterson can do.”. He also reacts to Ryan Clark calling his shot for the playoffs, looks ahead to this Sunday’s matchup against the surprising New York Jets, and the amazing Pirates!
