We were all impressed by the fall of Tom Brady: for most quarterbacks, it is still steeply and abrupt. Ben Roethlisberger looks like he was running full Thelma, Louise and jumped off the edge of a cliff. The Ringer's Steven Ruiz cut up a collection of Mut 22 coins throws by Ben from Sunday's game against Bengals and put them in grainy, wild west style video footage with music from saloons playing as background. This wasn't just one of the most hilarious things I've seen on Monday, but it was also the most sad, as Ben appears completely clean.
The Steelers declined to invest significant resources into the offensive line in the offseason, and has resulted in an absence of running game despite having drafted Najee Harris in the very first round. Harris did get 19 (!) targets during the pass game on Sunday, and he caught 14 passes. Lindsay Rhodes invited me to her podcast Monday. She gave me this great insight: Harris had 109 yards following the catch and receiving yards of 102 yards. You should think about that!
Look at Ben's Next Gen Stats passing chart which confirms the problem. This combination has basically made this offense horizontal. There is no security and doesn't have the arm strength required to propel the ball into the field quickly.
Steelers had hoped to defend but the secondary was not excellent and the defense line which is the strength of the team, has been hindered by buy Madden 22 coins multiple players. Most notable is T.J. Watt, who was not able to play in Sunday's game with a groin injury. When he first left the field two weeks ago the Steelers defense became shaky and caused problems for Joe Burrow on Sunday as well. It's extremely difficult to imagine a path to solve these problems.
