Big Ben Roethlisberger says Steelers tradition might be done



Ben Roethlisberger has a dismal view of the state of the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise.

"Maybe the tradition of the Pittsburgh Steelers is done," he said on his podcast.

Big Ben was reacting to the team's dismal 21-18 loss to the lowly New England Patriots last Thursday. He didn't like the way that game ended either, calling out coach Mike Tomlin. Trying to rally late, Pittsburgh didn't have its full compliment of timeouts, having to use some earlier to get organized.

"You can't afford in the second half of games to burn silly timeouts and to not have them late in the game," Roethlisberger said.
