Can a Big Ben clock highlight midnight?
Ike Taylor, a former Steelers DB, has won two Super Bowls with Ben Roethlisberger as his QB, but as Roethlisberger grows older and the question mark in his QB position enters 2021, Taylor thinks it’s time for Roethlisberger to file for retirement.
Speaking to TMZ, Taylor offered Roethlisberger some tips: either hang them or go to workouts.
I think 7 (Roethlisberger) should close it. The reason I think 7 should close it, he did everything he could. Whatever you ask him to be safe, as many chances as possible to win the Super Bowls, I think 7 did everything he could. If 7 wants to go back, 7 has to get into this Tom Brady regiment. It needs to be improved in the off-season and bring back some of its mobility. Because now in an NFL game, you can’t just be a pocket – unless you have an attack line like Tom Brady, you really can’t be a pocket safe, they’re gone now. You have to have some mobility.
What if Roethlisberger decides to tie a brace for another season?
You set them a year, two or three. I think the reason I think you’re bringing them back is that you’ve seen progress in Lamar Jackson, Joe Burrow before he’s hurt, and Baker Mayfield. So we’re talking about three young safe in one division. What do you choose last? I am not talking about praise, not about the Super Bowl, but about 2020. What do you choose last?
Taylor stressed that there is nothing (obvious) wrong with going out, and acknowledged that some players find it difficult to make a decision – both sound statements. Taylor said that if the Steelers decide to run him back with Roethlisberger, then the running game must be at the forefront, and Roethlisberger will take responsibility.
Steelers GM Kevin Colbert has not committed to Roethlisberger’s future in recent weeks, but the organization was ready to bring Roethlisberger back in 2021 – at a fair price. Roethlisberger’s top hit currently exceeds $ 40,000,000, a sizable number and the largest of all in the QB NFL.
2021 The 24th-seat Steelers in the first round of the NFL draft may also have several options for replacing Roethlisberger with their own new caller, or they may scan the commercial and free agent markets. future QB.
All options are on the Pittsburgh table, but eyes turn to Big Ben to make their next decision.
