Ben Roethlisberger: I still want to win Lombardis

By: Josh Alper, ProFootballTalk

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger met with the media on Tuesday and said that he never considered retirement after tearing three flexor tendons off the bone in his right elbow early last season.

The injury kept Roethlisberger from playing in the final 14 games of the 2019 campaign and he said he might have considered calling it a career if he felt he “was closer to the end” after the injury. Roethlisberger doesn’t feel that way, however.

While he may not have another decade left in the tank, he thinks he has “good years left in me” and a desire to add some Super Bowl rings to his collection.

“I still want to win Lombardis and I say that with a plural,” Roethlisberger said, via Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com.

  • Matt Canada is not trying to recreate the wheel with the Steelers’ offense.

One direction

Matt Canada is reluctant to talk about the impact he’ll have on the Steelers’ offense as a first-year NFL assistant, but the franchise quarterback and the offensive coordinator are absolutely interested in hearing what the new quarterbacks coach has to say.

“When it comes to ideas and when it comes to thoughts and things you can bring to the table every week, what he can bring to the table might be different than I would,” offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner observed.

Fichtner anticipated a process of give-and-take exchanges that’ll be “really fun to see and develop.”

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger perceived the misdirection game as an area in which Canada would be potentially impactful.

“We brought Coach Canada in to help with some of that stuff,” Roethlisberger said.

  • Roethlisberger finally opens up about the actual nature of his elbow injury.

Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger feels ‘really good,’ says 2019 surgery repaired 3 torn elbow tendons

By: Brooke Pryor, ESPN

PITTSBURGH — Ben Roethlisberger knew something was seriously wrong with his right elbow the instant he let go of the football late in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks last year.

Speaking for the first time since he suffered the season-ending injury in Week 2, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback said he dealt with the elbow pain “for years,” but the feeling that radiated through his elbow after he threw a long pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster was different.

“On the drive in Seattle, just kind of that pain wasn’t really going away,” Roethlisberger said Tuesday morning. “I threw one deep one to JuJu down the right side, and I really felt a different pain and different discomfort than I ever felt. It was shooting down my arm, and so I knew something was different at that moment.”

A couple of weeks later, Roethlisberger had season-ending surgery to reattach three torn flexor tendons in his right elbow.
