Terrell Suggs isn’t going to fall for Ben Roethlisberger’s shenanigans.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback said this week that he needs to play better as well as spreading the ball around to receivers not named Antonio Brown. Suggs isn’t buying the talk.
“Oh Ben … he’s setting us up,” Suggs said, according to Edward Lee of The Baltimore Sun. “He’s playing mind games. Rat bastard. He’s setting us up. Tell Ben, I’m on to his tricks. I know what he’s doing. I’m not going to let him fool me with trickery and Jedi-mind trick me.”
The Baltimore Ravens pass rusher rejected Big Ben’s statement, though, there is some truth to what the veteran quarterback said.
Roethlisberger didn’t play well in Week 3’s disheartening loss to the Chicago Bears. The quarterback was 22-of-39 passing for 235 yards to go with 1 touchdown, resulting in a 82.7 passer rating. Ten of his 22 completions and 110 of his passing yards were to Brown. He does have a habit of forcing the football to Brown at times.
The Steelers boast the best collection of skill position players on offense in the NFL. Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell deserve the lion’s share of touches. But opponents are game planing to stop the dynamic duo. When the two aren’t open Roethlisberger should look to another option.
