Of all the football I watched over the weekend, I was most impressed by Ben Roethlisberger in his preseason debut for the Steelers. A lot has been said about his arm strength over the past few years but he came into camp as a new member of the BSOHL (best shape of his life) club and renewed confidence in his throwing arm. He wasn’t wrong. Ben played the Steelers’ first three drives and was zipping the ball around the field the entire time. I was especially impressed by his two touchdown passes to Pat Freiermuth, as he placed the ball only where Freiermuth could catch them with plenty of english. The one deep ball that everyone is reacting to was still a good throw, I just think he put too much air under it. Lower the launch angle of that throw and I think it would have hit Diontae Johnson in stride for an easy touchdown. As long as he stays healthy, he has enough weapons around him that he could put up a QB1 season.
