Cursed I tell ya. This team is f@#king cursed.
In my thirty odd years of watching football, I have never seen a run quite like the Pittsburgh Steelers are on. The good news is their first outing since losing superstar running back Le’Veon Bell for the season was a success. The bad news is they lost their superstar quarterback in the process. Hey, at least we had him for two weeks!
Yesterday, the Pittsburgh Steelers edged the Oakland Raiders 38-35 as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was injured yet again, this time a foot sprain that preliminary reports say will sideline him for three weeks. I suppose as injuries go this was a mild one and the timing couldn’t be better. The Steelers have the hapless Browns next week then a bye. Just the fact we’ve lost our star QB for the second time this season, though, is absolutely mind-blowing.
