In November, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month. Roethlisberger has been hot as of late throwing for 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions in the past four games. Roethlisberger’s teammates spoke out about how their quarterback has been playing.
“He is taking on the challenge of getting the offense better week in and week out and is flourishing right now,” said receiver Antonio Brown. “He has been spot on. Anytime he is on it everyone benefits.”
“It’s great when you find the nice rhythm with your guys on the field, the receivers, the offensive line, the play caller,” said back up Bruce Gradkowski. “To be in the zone, you are having fun playing and making plays. That is one thing he has always done, make plays. It’s cool to see, he is doing a great job. He is running the show. He does a great job doing that, getting guys lined up, making the right calls, and he has been doing a great job this year.”
“We use the saying ‘he’s on fire’ and that is exactly what he is right now,” said wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. “He is throwing the ball really well, he sets the tempo when he gets in the huddle, and he is putting guys in the right mindset.
“From a leadership standpoint he has been great. That has helped us a lot even with guys being hurt and other guys playing. He has set the tempo for the younger guys.”
