From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s Ed Bouchette this morning:
Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Wallace have been teammates for only 31 games, but they already are on the verge of becoming the most prolific big-play combination in franchise history.
When Roethlisberger and Wallace hooked up for a 43-yard touchdown in the second quarter of the Steelers’ victory Thursday against Carolina, they tied a club record for most touchdowns of 40 yards or more by a quarterback-wide receiver combination.
“He’s a great player,” Wallace said of Roethlisberger. “He has a real good feel for the game. It’s not hard for me as a receiver when you have a guy that good. I have the easy job, especially when you’re playing with a guy like that.”

Do Ben’s teammates think he’s soft?
Not a chance!
