Ben Roethlisberger: We Want 30 Points In Every Game


Big Ben has officially set some big goals for his offense this season. And why shouldn’t he? After a franchise year on offense in 2014, in which the Pittsburgh Steelers set the team record for points, first downs and yards per game, many are expecting the Steelers and their trio of offensive superstars to surpass that production in 2015.

“We want to start fast and we want to be able to put thirty points on the board in every game,” Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Sunday. “That group in front of me is as good as any in the league, and as good as any I’ve ever had.”

Ben makes up one-third of the notorious “Killer Bs,” an explosive unit that includes arguably the league’s best wide receiver and running back in Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. Their skillset is obvious, but it will be the pitch-ins from role players that will prove the difference this year.

Under Mike Munchak, the Steelers have quietly developed one of the stoutest offensive lines in the league, anchored by Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey and rapidly improving guard David DeCastro.

Many of Bell’s big plays last year were care of the O-line’s perfectly executed traps and pulls. Heath Miller remains a reliable target and second-year prodigy Martavis Bryant looks to add to his route-running repertoire this season.

And unlike most gaudy aspirations disclosed during training camp, Roethlisberger’s feels less like hyperbole and more like an actual game plan.

The Steelers will need a near-superhuman offense in 2015 to hide the flaws of a young, raw defense sure to suffer through teething problems in its first year without long time defensive coordinator Dick Lebeau.

Lucky for Pittsburgh, they’ve got just the offense to do it.
