“He’s been wanting to help everybody. I think any communication that they could possibly be having could only help a young quarterback at any one given time. So, it’s a blessing still to have him be around, and be capable to do that”. — Randy Fichtner.
From our friends at Steelers Depot:
Rudolph talked a bit after the Dolphins game about how Roethlisberger has been of service to him since taking over the quarterback position, even seemingly expressing surprise over just how helpful he has been. He talked about his relationship with the veteran quarterback more with reporters yesterday.
“We have a process of what takes place when you come off of the field”, he outlined, via a transcript provided by the team’s media department. “Gathering information from the tablets, talking to Randy, receivers, running backs, whatever there may be…It’s a big advantage having a veteran quarterback in your corner looking to help you out any chance he gets. So I try to take advantage of that”.
Rudolph has talked about actively seeking out Roethlisberger for his guidance, and also how Roethlisberger volunteers things that he picks up while watching the game. He’ll pull him aside and show him something that he saw on the tablet, and what he might do in that situation.
While he, for some reason, got a good amount of grief for not traveling with the team when they were out west against the Chargers, Roethlisberger has been a visible and active presence on the sidelines in the game since his surgery, looking like the bionic man out there.
There is every reason to think that will continue to be the case over the next two games at least during this three-game homestand. That is what we actually get to see, of course. We don’t see the work that he puts in with the offense and with Rudolph over the course of the week.
