After a tough night in which the offense scored just 15 points (2 came via safety), Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger put the Steelers 30-17 loss to the Ravens on himself after he threw for 334 yards and a touchdown but was also intercepted twice, Scott Brown of ESPN.com reports.
“I didn’t play well enough to win, and guys look at me as the leader and the quarterback to make plays and I didn’t do that,” the 11-year veteran said. “I want to apologize to the fans, my teammates, to the organization, to the Rooneys and to the coaches,” Roethlisberger said. “I wish that I could apologize to everybody individually.”
Roethlisberger said the individual numbers he put up while leading the Steelers to the AFC North title mean little to him. Roethlisberger shared the NFL passing title (4,952 yards) with Saints quarterback Drew Brees and also set several Steelers season records. “I don’t really care about what I did,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m proud of the way that this team bounced back from the last two years and got back to the playoffs. I’m proud of the way a lot of the young guys stepped up.”
