Ben Roethlisberger played the game of his life Sunday vs the Indianapolis Colts. For years Roethlisberger has been overlooked when it comes to being recognized as a elite quarterback.His performance vs the Indianapolis Colts will force the NFL to respect him more greatly.
With the way the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line blocked yesterday it’s clear if the Pittsburgh Steelers had blocked this way for Roethlisberger in the past Roethlisberger would be considered more as a elite quarterback. Roethlisberger yesterday displayed arm strength,some mobility,and great decision making. All the wide receivers caught a pass and tight end Health Miller played one of his best games because of Roethlisberger being on top of his game. Roethlisberger has helped bring sudden rookie sensation Martavis Bryant along very nicely another great trait of a elite quarterback when you can put young recievers in position to propser.A elite quarterback proves he can carry a team when the defense is struggling. Roethlisberger did that yesterday.
When you think about Tom Brady,Peyton Manning,and Drew Brees they all are elite. But all three have shown that they struggle mightly in the past when facing strong pressure from the defense. Roethlisberger for the past 10 years has been known for improvising and making great plays behind a below average offensive line which shows once again that Roethlisberger is elite. Roethliberger has two superbowl rings something elite quarterbacks have as most of the starting quarterbacks do not have one. Going forward it seems safe to say Roethlisberger will remain hot as,the offensive line and play calling remains consistent.
