Ben Roethlisberger ‘excited’ about Steelers’ offense

The Pittsburgh Steelers might like to get done answering questions. Ben Roethlisberger, rather, hopes to focus on what the players in the building bring to the table.
At his youth soccer camp over the weekend, Big Ben said he is eager for the team that currently wears the black and yellow.
“I’m thrilled, I really am excited in what we have,” Roethlisberger told Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. “We place a great deal of work in, that’s what it is going to take, it’s going to take a team effort. See where it goes and we’re going to give all we’ve got. We can’t predict the future, but we can predict we are going to give everything we have.”

Gone are Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, however it’s not like Big Ben is now playing with scrap meat. JuJu Smith-Schuster is a legit No. 1 receiver. James Conner proved to be a workhorse runner. Vance McDonald is a bulldozing tight end and trustworthy goal. Free-agent receiver Donte Moncrief has received offseason praise within the construction and could eventually assemble consistency to go with physical talent. Ryan Switzer is a slot who seems to have earned Big Ben’s trust. And it would shock no one if among the Steelers’ other draft selections at recipient morphs into a playmaker, if that is second-year WR James Washington or rookie Diontae Johnson.
Sure, replacing Brown and Bell is easier said than done, but provided that a Hall of Famer like Roethlisberger is under center, the Steelers’ offense should be fine, even if it’s not as volatile. If the defense eventually begins to grab, Pittsburgh will remain in the playoff hunt.
Besides expecting new, younger players, Big Ben is reveling in the less dramatic nature of the 2019 Steelers.
“It has been a little crazy the past couple of years, possibly more than usual that we are used to dealing with,” Roethlisberger said. “To kind of return to quote unquote normalcy is sort of nice.”
Whether that normalcy turns into a winner with various faces is going to be the question surrounding Pittsburgh until the season starts.
