Roethlisberger ready to lead
Just over two months after his motorcycle accident, Ben Roethlisberger is having a great camp, writes Michael Smith.
Not only is Roethlisberger talented but also he's in the best situation a young quarterback could hope for, and not just in terms of supporting personnel, which hasn't experienced much turnover in his three years. He's worked with the same coaching staff his whole career, as well. "I'm getting a lot more comfortable with what's going on," Big Ben said last week. "Things are continuing to slow down, which helps a lot out there. By no means is it easy out there but it's getting easier. I'm able to know what our guys are doing more. I can tell guys if they're supposed to go in motion and run this route and even a couple of times at practice I'll change the play and tell guys instead of running the out, run the out and up, or run the post this time, just changing things up because I feel more comfortable with what's going on."
