The Jacksonville Jaguars' secondary shook Ben Roethlisberger to his core yesterday afternoon, picking off the bulky veteran five times—and returning a pair for TD’s—in Pittsburgh's surprising 30-9 loss at Heinz Field.
In fact, Big Ben was so bad that even he questioned his own future (again) in football as, when asked after the game if he was doing anything differently under center, Roethlisberger replied:
"I don't think so, but maybe I am. Maybe I don't have it anymore. I'm not playing well enough."
And before you Steeler fans at home throw a Gatorade cooler in anger, realize Big Ben put that statement in perspective two questions later, when he was then asked if he is doubting his game:
"Nope. If anybody in this room ever has that doubt, they probably aren't here. You know what I'm saying? Professional athletes shouldn't have doubt."
Makes sense…because I’m not an athlete and I have doubt.
Well, I doubt Roethlisberger could have been any worse yesterday.
