Same can be said of Warner.
I could disagree with the statement about Ben, though. Three years ago he was something like 9 of 21 with a couple picks and a 23 QB rating. That team needs only to show up with a good D and a couple refs in their pocket and...
I'll ignore the last part because that can only end in one of us getting banned (probably me).
But I think Egg2828 is right; this isn't the team from three years ago that ran the ball all the time. Roethlisberger bailed out a sputtering running game and a mediocre offensive line for most of the year, and unless Willie Parker becomes unstoppable all of a sudden, Roethlisberger will need to be on his game for them to convert third downs and win.
