As a rookie, Ben Roethlisberger led the Steelers to a 15-1 record. As a second year pro, he led the Steelers to a Super Bowl title. And last year, he produced the best season ever seen by a Steelers quarterback. Before he's done, he will very likely challenge Terry Bradshaw for the title of best Steelers QB ever.
And right now, he's killing the Steelers.
It's hard to find a bigger Roethlisberger defender than me, but there's no denying the facts: Over the last three games, Roethlisberger has been just a touch above awful. On Sunday he completed 30-of-42 passes for 284 yards, which sounds pretty good. But his three interceptions proved to be the killers on a day where the Steelers defense played well enough to win, if the Steelers don't hand the Colts opportunities.
