Ben-less Steelers not surprised by 3-0 start

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A season that was supposed to begin in disarray for the Pittsburgh Steelers is instead creating a bit of disbelief around the NFL.

They’re this good, and Ben Roethlisberger isn’t even playing yet?

Rather than creating a major disadvantage for them, the Steelers (3-0) seem to have embraced their quarterback’s four-game suspension as a means of proving they’re about more than a single player, even one as accomplished and as attention-getting as Roethlisberger. Clearly motivated by the chatter that their season might be ruined by the suspension, they’ve handled the adversity and seem to be thriving in it.

One more victory, and the Steelers will be off to their best start in 31 years _ and Roethlisberger still won’t have thrown a single pass.
