Pittsburgh Steelers‘ QB Ben Roethlisberger isn’t having a good start of the 2017 NFL Season, at least by his own standards. In three games played so far, Roethlisberger has thrown 741 yards with a career low of 6.7 yards per pass rate. Others may think that something is wrong with the Big Ben, but one man knows the truth. Linebacker Terrell Suggs of the Baltimore Ravens thinks that is all one big scheme which Roethlisberger devised in order to fool the rival teams.

He’s setting us up,” – said Suggs to the reporters on Wednesday. “Yeah, you know, he’s playing mind games, the rat bastard. He’s setting us up. Tell Ben I’m on to his tricks. I know what he’s doing. I’m not going to let him fool me with trickery and Jedi mind trick me.

Interesting thing is that this isn’t the first time Suggs had his doubts about Ben Roethlisberger. When Roethlisberger was out during 2016 with a knee injury, Suggs had no doubts that Steelers’ QB will be all fine and well in time to participate in the game against the Ravens.

Don’t fall for that … You have to understand … I saw this movie before, you know,”- Suggs told reporters at the time. “He’s gonna act like ‘aw, I’m not playing, I don’t know, I did individual [workouts] a little bit.’ But then he’ll walk his big ass on out there and [I’ll be like] ‘how you doin’ Benjamin.’ And then, it’s on!

Although Suggs obviously thinks Roethlisberger will bring his A game against the Ravens on Sunday, Steelers are most likely worried a bit. Roethlisberger is currently on a 9 game streak in which he has thrown less than 300 yards per game. It wasn’t this bad since 2008. The bad news for the Steelers is that the stretch will likely continue since Roethlisberger has crossed the 300 yards mark only twice in his 19 games against the Ravens.

I am a reality TV junkie. My dream since I was a kid was to be on Big Brother, but until then you can catch me binge-watching episodes each summer.
