Steelers star responds to Ben Roethlisberger’s strong criticism

A Pittsburgh Steelers veteran is responding after former quarterback Ben Roethlisberger questioned whether the team’s tradition is eroding.

Steeler star responds to Ben Roethlisberger

In his weekly podcast, Roethlisberger questioned whether the Steelers’ tradition was “done” following their 21-18 loss to the New England Patriots this past Thursday. The former face of the franchise questioned the team’s coaching and leadership while wondering which players were willing to confront others and set the tone.

It was a stinging criticism from a Steelers icon and it prompted current defensive lineman Cam Heyward to offer a response during Thursday’s edition of “Good Morning Football” on NFL Network.

“Ben his an opinion. He’s entitled to that, but I don’t agree,” Heyward said. “We lost these last two games, been rough, but the Steelers way is about grinding it out and it doesn’t matter what’s going on. There’s plenty to be done about it, and tradition starts by winning games, having good defense and scoring points.”

The Steelers have certainly been grinding, but without much reward. Their disjointed offense has been a big problem and even coach Mike Tomlin is starting to hear criticism. Roethlisberger’s take might be a bit extreme, but things are certainly not right in Pittsburgh.
